I put my credit card information in for the $1.00 charge. No mention of any additional charges. I entered it 3 times since it kept bouncing back. I know my card is good so I couldn't understand. NOW I DO. That particular account I placed I was going to place the $1 charge on had 12 dollars in it. Glad it didn't go through. Rip off artists.
Setting aside I got dinged for $18.95, the main problem I had is that the reports are not detailed like CARFAX. It only states if a car has Salvage or Rebuilt title issues but does not explain why. CARFAX is much more detailed and goes into greater depth about accidents. Also, for one report, CarHistory.us did not show that the car had been in an accident, but the CARFAX did. So there is missing data here.
With that said, you do get 25 reports. I was able to track down some of the cars I previously owned going back 10 years. So I guess I'll just use my 25 reports then cancel before the next billing cycle.
If your are looking for a trip down memory lane, this is a cheap way to do so. However, if you are looking for a detailed report on the VIN# you will only get basic information. It's not worth it unless you plan on running a lot of VINs and even then the data may not be accurate.
BEWARE. They absolutely take advantage of people that don't necessary look at their credit card statement carefully, but then again that's how they make their money, sneaking charges onto unsuspecting customers credit cards. I also was charged the $18.95 and "signed up" for a year subscription that I did not authorize. Yes they will refund your card once you call them out on it, but nevertheless SHAME ON THEM.
They say it costs $1.00 but they charge you $18.95 this is a total scam and when I called they said the $1.00 is a deposit that they never take and just charge the $18.95 SCAM SCAM SCAM
I paid for their 1.00 report to check out a truck I was considering purchasing and the report was informative and helpful. However they billed me an additional 18.95 about 15 days after this transaction that I did not authorize. I don't recall anywhere in the online billing literature stating there would be a reoccurring charge of 18.95 monthly. I contacted them and their customer service representative was very helpful cancelling the reoccurring charge and said I would be receiving a refund for the 18.95 in 3 to 5 business days. Bottom line is this type of unauthorized billing tactics are becoming more and mote common these days and in my opinion is a deceptive and unethical business practice that prays on consumers that do not monitor their bank accounts carefully. My advise if you chose to purchase their car report to immediately call them and cancel the service once you have obtained the report to insure you are not getting over charged above what you approved to be charged.
I should have read the reviews before I purchased- SCAM! DO NOT BUY THIS REPORT! They tell you it is $1 and then charge $18.95!
This company will sell you a one time VIN report for a dollar and then charge $18.95 a month using a different company name each month. They are very sneaky and dishonest. Your best bet is to steer clear of them at all costs.
