USSEARCH .COM offers a database of information on people from public records and other sources.

One of their services is a reverse phonenumber search. Cost is approx $14.

Before paying for the service you can ener the number in a field and search to see if USSEARCH.COM holds a record on the number.

After performing the search the site reports:

Phone Number: (I've deleted this)

Name: Available
Address: Available

Get the details behind that phone number! Learn who it's registered to and their address - instantly!


So having entered credit card details and having the transaction processed I await the result which is to be instantly emailed to me.

I check the email and all there is is a transaction confirmation. No email with results. In very small text in the email is a link: check request progress.

I click and am told, and rememer I have been told before paying my money to this compant that details including name and address are available-

"We were not able to find an immediate match in our online database. A more comprehensive database is now being searched, at no additional charge, and, if found, results will be sent to you within 48 hours. If we are unable to complete your search, your order will be cancelled and your credit card will not be charged. Thank you again for choosing US Search."

Now that's a scam, when a company tells you info is available to get you to pay for a service, and when it gets your money tells you there is none, that's a scam.
