84 ‘CarHistory.us.org’ Reviews
I too bit the $1 hook in my haste to get a car history report..only to see I had been lied to
Would not let me chose NO stars.
I too was charged close to $20 for my $1 report. I was able to obtain a refund but the was taken for over $1300, stolen from my acct. My bank did close off my debit card with hopes of halting the unauthorized activity. I emailed "Andy" stating the issue and/or compromised system they are using that is leaking customer info.
I actually believe it is them and no real leak in customer info. due to their shifty responses and emailing me this response " Your private information is encoded and encrypted by a 128 bit secure server. There is no way any unauthorized persons will be able to see your private data." after emailing me "I assure you we are a very legitimate company" and giving me my own phone number to call for customer service. Trust me I am NOT assured.
So I emailed them this "CarHistory.us.org Reviews - Legit or Scam? (reviewopedia.com) Then you really need to read up on your own company. This cut and paste canned response is crap and you know it. Thieves and lies. Still reporting. " Do not use this company AT ALL. They will steal your money and lie about it.
I can't give zero stars. This is a scam. I got the report which was only half complete. I contacted them about the overcharge. They assured me they were a legit company and refunded my money. They sent me a text message and an email both verifying that my account had been deactivated. The text message to my phone said to, "contact xxx-xxx-xxxx ," if I had anymore questions.
That number was MY phone number. I contacted "Andy" and asked him why he sent me my own phone number. He refused to acknowledge it but assured me yet again they were a legit company. The next day my card was used to purchase things I didn't purchase. This company needs to be investigated and all participants put in jail.
This website is SCAM to the fullest. I too was billed 18.95 not agreeing to that amount. 2 days later my bank account had 1k fraudulent purchases from over seas. 1 thousand dollars. DO NOT USE
They Advertise Car History for only $1.00
They fish for as much information as possible, including DOB. The CC information field appears not secure.
Contacted Bank to void payment after attempting to cancel transaction. * Bank discovered 5 unauthorized credit card purchases the same day. Same story as everyone else to a T.
I imagine their Customer Service person, Karmen, is growing tired of cutting and pasting the same apology over and over again.
Carhistory.us.org is a scam. They say they will charge you $1 (what, was I sleeping?), so you innocently give them your credit card info, and they charge you $18.95.
The report is something generic they must be hijacking from some other place where you can get the info legitimately for free.
If you catch the overcharge, they cheerfully refund you, most likely because that isn't the main source of their income. They sell your credit card info to other thieves, who promptly make purchases, forcing you to cancel your card (yes, that was me).
When you complain, they endlessly respond about how legitimate they are, and they protect your credit card blah blah blah. Of course you can't do anything about shutting down the site, because they live out of country.
They got me for $18.95 plus $1 just like everyone else I see in the reviews.
They replied via text of course. I am sure this will show up on next month's bank statement. Contacting bank. I've asked for refund directly but doubtful I will ever receive.
Happened to me, get you with the $1 charge but then it establishes a recurring billing "subscription" for $18.95. A conveniently low amount to fly under the radar, but high enough for them to turn a tidy profit off a bunch of unsuspecting users trying to get info on either their own car or perhaps a vehicle being researched for purchase. My bank's fraud prevention system clued me in on the charges, and oddly enough it also happened right around the time some other unauthorized charges were made in Canada for Huawei electronics. But, of course, I have no way of piecing the two events together (e.g., sold my card info on the black market). Still, the timing is highly coincidental.
This has wasted a bunch of my time and money (including the time I've now spent writing this review), but I found it helpful to see others who've reviewed here, and I'm piling on. You may ultimately have to cancel your credit card **AND** ensure that any replacement cards **AREN'T** forwarding the information to retailers such as "publiccarcheck.com". That's how they keep getting your money after cancelling the compromised card, as they are opted-in to a Visa program which enables them to automatically be updated with your **new** credit card info after you've canceled the compromised one.
I also paid for the $1.00 car history on a particular car and was charged the $18.95 as well. Referring you to another website to get the complete information would cause you to charge again. This company is a scam. Still waiting for my refund after 30 days...
I received the report and was not thorough at all. I complained and then they said this.
"We apologize for this inconvenience and would like to make this right by directing you to another source that will provide more extensive data. Please use this link (http://www.autocheck.com) to request a report and keep your receipt as we will be more than happy to reimburse you for any fees incurred in obtaining the new report. Once you have obtained your report please email us the receipt and we will promptly process your reimbursement."
Red flags...Then I checked the bank and sure enough $18.95 for a $1 report
Why haven't they been shut down. I guess autocheck is their PIC
I too was charged $18.95 on my debit card. I ordered a report for $1. Not a service for $18.95. Notified the bank and “chatted” with the company. Said I might have mistakenly agreed to the subscription service. No way. Said they closed my “account”, voided the charge, credited my account and cancelled the subscription. Cheaters and con men. We shall see. Will follow up if I have too. Going back to the website to review the scam. Dirty way to do business.
I too was charged the $18.95 today-they quickly reversed the charges after I complained that all they did was scrape old information off of the listing I had out on facebook for my own car last year!bTime to get these people shut down!
Everything As above.
The draw in. You are on the hook at a dollar.
After a bit you learn CARHISTORY has charged you
a unauthorized 19 dollars plus. You do not expect
any integrity any more.
OK, 20 bucks for a few casual statistics. You eat it
and move on.
And then the knife gutting comes. CARHISTORY guts
you for an additional 12 months of unauthorised payments. Isn't that just grand?
Cancel your card! Send all information in to the
state prosecuter. (I did) Washington state.
Bring this up in all the conversations you can.
Does not cost $1 - they really steal $18.95 beware
Just another crap site that scams you with micro print. If this is how you make your money you are no better than the drug addict stealing in our neighborhoods and should be arrested then the police should do a civil forfeiture with all your assets then maybe that will remind you to do business without scamming. Will report to ic3
Would not allow me to purchase, said I had an account with the email I used so I used a different email then said there was a account with the debit card I used so it says click button to send a reminder for password and I never got it!!.
Why is it so important to have logged all this info then deny access over bull. I will make sure to let everyone on my 1.2 million subscribers how worthless this website is and to never use it as well as spread the word. I have an idea how about when I want a report and I'm willing to pay for it (which is bs) give me the report instead you are going to go out of business.!!! I'm so sick of this kind of website crap.
All they want is your metadata to sell that's why the reports are so cheap, don't fall for it!!!!!!
I have made the purchase of a report and got charged the 18.95 dollars as well.
Called the 1-855-482-6465 number and they say that there my purchase and name is nowhere at their system, even though I have received their e-mail giving access to the report and that my credit card has been charged by them!
The report is generated after clicking on $1 will be charged for this report. They charge $18.95. If I had not checked the bank today that would stick. But when I called, they immediatly reversed the charge and texted me before I hung up.
No question they know it's a rip off. And the report was not good. Maybe worth a buck.
Like many others, it showed me a page that said my report was going to be one dollar. I proceeded to enter my Vin number and let it generate the reports. Once the reports were finished it took me to a payment page and I entered my credit card information still showing that I would owe one dollar. I checked my bank account shortly there after and I was charged $18.95. I immediately got on the live chat (Pamela) and told them that they were charging me $18.95 for a report that was clearly stated to be one dollar. They did state that they would close my account and. charges of $18.95 effective today, these remaining charge(s) have been voided. I told her I would be watching my bank account very closely.
I also copied my chat with Pamela and my confirmation number and have it saved as you do not get a copy of it.
DIDNT INFORM YOU OF WHAT YOU WAS BEING CHARGED AND AUTHORIZED 12 PAYMENTS ON MY ACCOUNT WITHOUT INFORMING ME OF SUCH. I SUPPOSE TO GET A FULL REFUND IN A FEW DAYS BUT I DONT TRUST IT JUST GOING CANCEL MY CARD OUT SMH
This site is just another scam and I fell for it.
The site says it is free and then says $1 but they immediately charged my card $18.95 and said I had authorized 12 installments of $18.95. The report is useless and when I received a text from Darian I told him so. He wanted to run another report, I said no thank you. After several texts, he tells me he has cancelled my account and future payments of $18.95 are cancelled. I closed my credit card immediately and will notify the credit card company not to pay the $18.95 charged to my account I have also notified the Texas Attorney Generals office of consumer affairs of this scam.
