CheckPeople.com is a new people finder website which says that you can search for anyone using their “Best in Class Tool for People Search” as well as acquire background checks and look up phone numbers.
Online people finder services which can be accessed without special permission only really allow you to search for records that are available to the general public. But the website says that these records can be used both for finding friends and family members that you’ve lost track of, as well as providing necessary background check info.
If you choose their service to provide a background check, they can offer you criminal records, phone number and address history, access to sex offender databases, tax liens, and more. The website says these basic record searches can help keep you and your family safe.
They also say that they can help you reverse look up phone numbers – simply enter the number of the person who has called you and the website says they can identify numbers from landlines, cell phones, and even numbers which are “unlisted.”
Once you determine what sort of information you are looking for, CheckPeople.com will provide it for you in a single, easy to read report for $29.95. Or you can choose to pay a subscription fee and receive unlimited reports.
A one month subscription costs $24.95, while a three month subscription costs $14.95 per month and a six month subscription costs $10.95 per month. While you are a subscriber, you can access any number and any type of reports you choose.
For people who do not wish to have their personal records accessed by these people finder websites, you can choose to exercise their “Remove My Info” option, which allows you to remove your records from their database so it will no longer be available to searchers.

I tried checkpeople because I wanted to do a background search on my brother. I know he has been to jail numerous times, went to prison for a little while, has numerous felonies... I just wanted to see actually how many it was... Checkpeople showed that he had no criminal record at all!!! I am 100000% certain that is wrong. I seriously can't even begin to count how many times he's been arrested in his short 27 years of life. So for it to not even show one arrest is a joke. I instantly cancelled my subscription that I wasn't intending to subscribe to. It was a waste of my $1. If you are trying to find the arrest records on someone, this is not the site to do that! I instantly thought of if someone was wanting to date him (or someone like him) and took this site to be truth, then they would be in for one hell of a ride. Don't take the background information on this site to be truth! Especially if it has to do with your safety or your children's safety. You could easily be misled into thinking a hardened criminal is actually an upstanding citizen!
Scam! Not located in the U.S,!
Ordered a background check on myself; it was sent to me with incomplete addresses and wrong information. My marriage date, from public record, was years off. My name is not that common! Contacted the company twice, asking for a better report or refund. Finally got a terse reply including: "CheckPeople does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any third-party information on the website. Our service combs through public records - we simply provide the public information to you."
The next morning (today) our bank statement updated with three additional charges to the $4.95 report fee I originally paid. I called the bank, who informed me that two of the other charges were for INTERNATIONAL origination fees--checkpeople.com is an offshore company. We don't know what the third one is for. Too late, I did an internet search and found hundreds of complaints for unauthorized credit card charges. We had to cancel our credit card and now have to wait 7-10 days for a new one.
This company does not search public records, it does not stand behind its product, it is not located in the United States and has no customer service. It has been reported hundreds of times for fraud. DO NOT USE CHECKPEOPLE.COM!
SCAM. This is how to Unscubscribe. The ONLY way.
Guy on cell phone is cust service dude.
First Lady on phone asks, how many days has it been that I ordered the service. I said 4 days. (They like you to keep calling back until the first billing period.
Lady on phone says, "Im sorry, your email is not in our system.
When asking why my email was not in (the system) so they could cancel it, I was given the response, All I can do is check the last four digits of your card number, your name on your credit card, and your email address. None of these three are coming up, the only way to validate your account is by you giving me your card number without the year and expiration date."
Hmmm... I don't feel comfortable doing that over the phone, I said.
Lady on phone responds saying, "I respect your decision". I said well how do I cancel, she said well.. "I gave you three choices, none of them are coming up in our system".
I bluffed her saying; "Well, I received an email confirmation saying that you have received my account information when I logged in. So, I know for a fact you have my account on record".
She thought about that for a second. She said "Well, I don't know what else to tell you, I have now verified your name and the last four digits on your credit card 3x now. If you want, you can just give me your card number so I can check your account".
I said, "Well, I would like to speak to a Mgr. She said, "There are no managers here, but you are welcome to call back later, we answer the phones 24/7".
So that phone convo was not okay with me. I came on here and read all of these SCAM reviews.
My next step: I cancelled my credit card. TAKE THAT YOU SPAM SCAMMERS!
Wow, good thing I checked Reviewopedia.com ...wheeeew!
Before the final step of giving them my credit card I call their number to cancel and was on hold for over 15 minutes, that is ridiculous and so I checked with reviewopedia.com and Wow, saved a lot of time and money. ALWAYS CHECK REVIEWS.
