This is a scam. The link takes you to a place that says you will pay $1 for your report, then you find out that is a "deposit" and you will pay $18.95 additional, plus it will bill you $19.95 per month to the credit card you entered. I called the contact number and explained the link said $1. The rep said that is a "deposit" for your report and the $18.95 to get the report will also be billed. I told him that is not what the link said. He said it is explained int he terms and conditions. I said fine, but the link is misleading. He said it is fully explained in the terms and conditions. So they clearly know they are misleading you with this scam. Stay away!!!!
I was supposed to be charged $1.00 But I was charged $18.95. No explanation of why the ripoff
They say $1.00 for report and turn around and charge you $18.95. This is a scam and fraud why isn't this company stopped this is against the law.
I should have known better, I paid my dollar for a report that was not only incorrect but incomplete. I was then told via email to use the "Autocheck" report and that "any expense would be promptly reimbursed" by Car History Records.So I spent the $25 for an Autocheck, emailed the receipt, and was told "please contact our manager for further assistance".
Be Ware, I was reviewing their website and thought I was trying the free vin look up as I was interested in purchasing a used car. Somehow I got charged $1 and then an ongoing monthly charge of $18.95 which I no way authorized. I remember about a $1 lookup fee but didn't think my credit card went through. I contacted my credit card company and they will dispute the charge and issue me a new credit card. I also contacted the company and they were happy to cancel the charges but I will wait and see what the credit card company says when they issue me my new card. This was very sneaky on the part of the website and I believe this is false advertising. It seems like if you do one vin search they automatically bill you the monthly fee when it was never authorized nor was it mentioned in any on line documentation at the time of the vin search.
As with most of the other reviews, I was of the understanding that the report was $1, but when I checked my bank account it showed up as $18.95! Nowhere on their site did it indicate that that was the charge. When I disputed this they were very polite and accommodating. We will see, though, if they did, in fact, close my account, void and remove the remaining charges.
Paid the $1 for a car report in April. Actually, the report wasn't too bad.
Found out about the $18.75 charge when I got my CC bill. Paid it because I did use the service for the one car.
Just found out about a second charge in May for $18.75. Filed an unauthorized charge with my financial institution.
Then I found this website. If this continues to be a problem, I will file the form with the US Gov Internet rip off people.
I pursued a $1 VIN report with carhistory.us.org and have spent over an hour with an online assistant trying to get reimbursed. I was told there was no phone #s for any of the managers, and that I could only communicate through email. I so regret the decision to believe I could get a $1 report. Caveat Emptor, this is a deceptive outfit.
