Website: is a people finder website which states that users can search for anyone using their people search tools, as well as acquire background checks and look up phone numbers.

How Does it Work?

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.”

Cost & Price Plans

Once you determine what sort of information you are looking for, 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.

Is Safe?

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.

This allows you to remove your records from their database so it will no longer be available to searchers.

Shady business practices
July 2, 2024 gave me a free trial for $1 and then took another six dollars, and some change, for pdf downloads that I did not knowingly authorize. Later I could not even open any reports due to some unknown problems. After I cancelled my account was banned for life. My money was refunded but beware! - these guys are shady. Don't use this website, choose a reputable one instead.

Their Antics Still Continue!
December 11, 2023

I am shocked to see this horrible site still operating. Their dishonestly & lies have gone on for years. I never paid them a dime. All I attempted to do was simply get them to REMOVE MY NAME & PERSONAL INFO. That was nearly impossible. Their "Opt-Out" process did not even work! Calls to them were worthless.

A simple removal was never honored....THAT WAS UNTIL I FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE BBB IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA. THAT FINALLY WORKED! I would advise you, if you have problems with Check People DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME BEGGING THEM FOR HELP. You will be blowing in the wind. These scumbags will run you in circles & wear you out. If they have scammed you out of money due to their "Deceptive Free Trial" thus billing your credit card, document your case with a request with Check People.

They will ignore you of course, THEN go tho the Better Business Bureau in Orlando Fla. Study their past negative reviews & file a complaint. Remember I had to do that to simply be removed form their database. The BBB was extremely helpful. This Check People Outfit will put on their Happy Face & send their form letters back t the BBB & most likely refund the money they stole from you on their "Free Trial"...FYI - If you have never done the "Free Trial" DON'T!!!!

Once they have your credit card, you will be in real trouble. They have a fancy website, but don't be fooled. My problem with them goes back to 2018. I am shocked to see their still getting away with this abuse. Good Luck & DON'T GO NEAR THIS TRAP OF DECEIT. How disgusting!

MagicalCreations December 29, 2023

Thank You for your accurate and honest review that also describes my entire experience with this slanderous and dishonest so called service. I never have been interested enough in any one person to care to search for them but this site preys on nosey people who like dirt on others. Those people LOVE lies as well and find a feast with this site and their equally dishonest services. They don't care about truth or facts. Why let that stop them from exploiting others for profit? They get a few facts correct built on a foundation of lies. Very reminiscent of what we are warned about from the great nefarious one down under.

Check People ( Thieves )
December 4, 2023

Was suppose to get a download of info I wanted for a dollar ,never got it and then charged me $29.16 which I canceled as soon as I was notified of charge was suppose to get refunded never happened then they try to take another $29.16 a month later had to call and cancel again so now I'm robbed of $29.16 so be aware of this company

Miy February 19, 2024

How do I cancel they don’t answer calls or emails ?

No Help
October 2, 2023

Signed up for the 3 day trial, but cancelled at the 70 hour mark because they were unable to generate a report or answer an e-mail.

Dishonest company that will misuse your credit information!
April 22, 2023

Do not fall for this scam! Give you an introductory offer of three days for $4.95.

Consented to that and quickly learned that their service is inferior. I later learned that they used my information to automatically charge my PayPal account for $29.16 two days later and by the time I discovered it they had charged another $29.16 to my account! I previously felt safe paying for things with PayPal. This has totally changed my opinion of PayPal for allowing this to happen! My experience with this company is that they are dishonest and will miss use your credit card information to charge you without your consent. Ron!

Unhelpful and bogus
January 22, 2023
Searches are fast. I chose them for unlimited reports since we were organizing a reunion. I suddenly got banned they can't or won't tell. my why. Nothing in do's and don'ts mentions researching for a large group is forbidden. My work is lost. Phone support can't help email support refers you do's and Dont's basically don't know anything. Sounds like a garbage company.

It is a SCAM!!! What do I do???
December 18, 2022
I did this and paid for one report which was supposed to be a dollar but got charged $30 on my credit card immediately. What do I do to fix it and prevent them from taking more money?

Sucker April 05, 2023

nothing they are a total ripoff worse the $1 report was not accurate. you could try getting your credit card to reverse

the company will just have someone overseas repeating you no cancel in time you no cancel in 5 days

So Wrong!
November 28, 2022
I signed up for the four day trial for $4.99, but when looked at my credit account, they charged for also $6.99, but also asked them to cancel my account as it did me no good on my search, now they also charging me for additional month after I had cancelled in the period. But also keep trying to sell something else, so wrong and said could not refund.

If it had a zero I would have checked that. Do not pay for this service. They do not provide any correct or verified and triple checked information. You will not find any current or true past Information. They are fraudulently reporting incorrect information

Total Scammers!

Straight up scam. They are trying to phish more info to add to their scam database to sell to criminals.

Don't Trust This Site
March 8, 2022

I used Checkpeople and was being charged $44.65 under my nose. I kept seeing that my savings was being drained, so I did some digging come to find our it was Checkpeople. I don't trust this site, they are awful.

Complete scam
December 13, 2021
This site was pretty much worthless. I couldn't even find myself. I paid for the trial at $4.99 but was charged for the trial plus an additional $6.99 for any reports. This was a hidden cost that I wasn't able to opt out of. So, $12 for a $4.99 trial. Also, and beware, within 24 ours of signing up, my email spam folder went from 2 entries to 270. Avoid this site and Truthfinders. Both are the same trash.

These people are low lifes and should be in jail
May 20, 2021
Scam alert !!! This service is a rip off. I paid my $1.00 fee for a report but they charged my credit card $7.00 and have tried to authorize a 29.95 payment so they could bilk me out of more money. Please do not let these people rip you off as they have done me. Please do not ever use thir site.

Pricing plan is hidden. Cancelling isn’t easy.
December 28, 2020

They’re a bit cagey about the cost. The banner says “$1.00.” Obviously that’s not going to be the price so you click different screens looking for the real, hidden, cost. But you don’t find anything. So you click “get” or “purchase” or whatever and you discover you’ve just bought into a “plan.”

But you can’t find the details of the plan. So you come to this site (which you kick yourself for not doing in the first place) and discover that you’ve signed up for a $30-per-month thing.

Some reviewers use the word “scam.”

So you go back to the site and try to find the cancellation page. It does not exist. You finally find a little something on the FAQ page. You find a phone number.

You mutter “f*#k me!” cause you know the drill. You’ll call and immediately get put on hold for 15 minutes. Half a second before you’re going to give up in frustration, an operator comes on. You tell her you want to cancel. She indicates she will “start the process” ... but not before taking you through the usual upsell song and dance.

You interrupt her and say, “Look. I’m unemployed. Ya know. Covid. I have no money. I need to cancel.”

She finally does it. You thank her. You wish you could sleep at night so you wouldn’t lie awake and, at 3:00 AM, start wondering what ever happened to your ex-boyfriend from the 1980s, which leads you to websites that promise to answer all your burning questions.

PS. I still don’t know whatever happened to my ex boyfriend.

August 10, 2020

The site is lacking in terms of how much information they give you for your money.

When you call in to cancel they do not actually cancel the account so you must keep an eye on your account. THEN - when they charge you again they refuse to refund.


Subscription Scam! Beware!
August 3, 2020

I purchased one report for $7.99, which I thought was reasonable.

Two months later I discovered that I had been charged monthly subscription fees of $29.16 each. I did not knowingly sign up for a subscription, and can only assume this is another of those companies that are there solely for that purpose - to trick you into a subscription.

I called customer service and talked with an employee who would only refund one of the subscription fees. The end result? I paid $37.15 for one report!

Dangerously Bogus Reporting---- For True
June 19, 2020

This just happened to me. Subscribed to 3day $4.99 trial. Looking for info on long lost friend. Found info, called and cancelled same day. Cancellation seems to go well. Have a confirmation number and email verification. So far good. Decided since I could use for 2 more days to look up myself. Information such as relatives, former addressed linking me to the name were absolutely correct...then I looked at criminal records and got the shock.

Bogus theft charges, using addresses allegedly mine were not only places I'd never lived but didn't match any in the address file that I could document as being correct. Prompted me to look at the "reports" of my two grown children. Same as before: accuracy with regard to addresses, relatives and most acquaintances, but that criminal charges "report" was dangerously inaccurate. One record listed a battery charge against my Son when he was 10yrs old!!!

They don't know about this yet. Trying to get some redress. I'm not one to sit on things like this. Immediately called customer service to report what I found. He guided me through a process of removing the report...but unacceptable until I know whete this info originated. Was told the company was merely a search engine and only pulled data from outside sources. Do you know he insulted my intelligence by telling me this data...regarding criminal charges!!!...came from the three credit reporting agencies!!! Either the CS Rep, who otherwise was very nice, didn't know better or was counting on me not knowing better. I dunno...maybe it was a sign for me to order my credit reports, which I have done.

Also spoke directly with a warm body at Equifax who looked at my report on line and assured me there were no references to criminal charges, would not be on my credit report, and if were would not be released from them as part of the public domain. I will be pursuing this. Very dangerous especially at a time when people are engaging in finding new work; changing careers etc. I will be looking specifically at this company's bogus abuse of information, since I have used similar services for same reason, in same way and never once have seen this type of info against my name...OMGoodness and my children!! Completely unacceptable.

Please for all of you who went through this and too much time has gone by to get access to the bogus reports without re-subscribing,(heaven forbid!!), note that I will be pursuing this to satisfactory resolve. Having 2 days access on this trial, I will take screen shots for a permanent record, along with seeking out a corporate response. I don't feel its enough to tell consumers to just request their "reports" be removed. We have a right to know how and why this inaccurate data was generated, and more importantly that it will not continue to happen, most importantly if there are no assurances it will not continue; the consumer has a right to request that their data not be apart of this collection process.

I have looked at BBB complaints. There are quite a few, but none seemed to address this issue. Most had to do with products and services, improper billing practices, untimely refunds-if at all. Clearly enhancing my personal concern, about the conduct of business by this company; and so I will be filing a BBB complaint, and would urge anyone who feels the need to highlight untoward practices you have experienced with this company. I would also urge anyone having these kinds of experiences with similar companies to register your concerns.

Maybe this is an entity that requires more regulation in the handling the reporting of Public Domain information. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I will do my best to provide updates via this venue. All the best, and Stay Well.
