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.

This company couldn't even provide the arrests and divorce record of the person I searched. What a waste of time.
Declaring a recurring charge inside 'billing terms' makes this company a scam. Billing terms are billing terms. Automatic "memberships" are not billing terms, memberships are services. If you charge for a service, it's not a billing term, it's a service.
This company rightly has an F rating on BBB and 100% negative reviews. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. Now that is remarkable.
They do tell you that after the 5 day trial period that you will be billed the $44.95 unless you call the phone number(listed right after that) to cancel. It was listed in the information that popped up after you entered your credit card information. It said "review TERMS here".... you click on the TERMS and it tells you when and how they bill you. I would just like to give them a fair review and many people don't read everything and then give a product or company an unfair review because of "User Error". I just signed up today and I will say the one thing I didn't like so far is that it said a $1.00 trial but they have billed my card $1.95. I am in the process of figuring this out so if they do take the $.95 off my card I will update my review. I have been able to look up as many people I want thus far and I have not incurred any additional charges-yet. I have not used the reverse number look up or the criminal back round features yet but so far so good. I will most likely be canceling my subscription before my 5 days are up because it was for only one person so I will let you know how that goes. If they do not bill my card any additional charges then I will give them 4 stars,(minus 1 for overcharging my trial).
I had recently wanted to check on a public record of someone I have been dating for almost a year. I do a quick Google search, wasn't really paying attention too much and checked out this site. I saw it was a $1.00 charge and went ahead with the process, even letting my credit union allowing the charge to go through (since it alerted me saying it was Fraud)
About 5 days later, I get an alert from my account showing a low balance. I discovered they charged me with a $44.95 charge! That was NEVER mentioned on the site! I called their customer service number, the person I spoke with claimed it was on the site, but I never saw anything there, even through all of the fine print. I was pretty firm on getting my refund, which they have put through and gave me confirmation numbers for it.
I'm going to be looking at getting my debit card cancelled so I do not keep getting charged in case that is what they intend to do on my account. Don't be like me and not search more before committing to a background check. This site is awful!!
Their billing number sends you to an entirely different company. That company said they have been receiving an influx of calls with the same complaints and they were more than happy to give me the number for checkpeople.com.
I had signed up for the free trial and called to cancel the same day. Yet I woke up this morning to a $44.85 charge. After talking to a "supervisor", the woman said I was supposed to call back within 5 days of my cancellation, which is garbage. She eventually said she was going to refund me in full. I called my bank to file a claim and they said the company never submitted anything for a refund, but luckily my bank was able to stop any further charges.
Also their billing address is in Great Britain, so I assume this is really all just a giant scam. Do not use this company.
If you're in the same boat as me, make sure to call your bank and also submit a claim to the BBB.
This company is a scam. They are based out of the US, so may be able to get away with this. My wife needed to do a background check. The initial was supposed to be $1, but they charged us that, plus $1.95. And then 7 days later, we were automatically enrolled in their monthly subscription service for $44.85. We called the same day to cancel this, and they said a refund would be issued in 24 to 48 hours. 10 days later, and still no credit on our CC. This is a total scam, and had to dispute the charge with the CC company. CC company said that this is a recurring charge, and will continue to show up every month unless cancelled. Total scam. Do not do business with this company.
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!
do not use those people, they tell u it cost $1 than you end up with a subscription, and I never got the report I needed!! stay away!!!
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!
