I wanted to find out why someone had been arrested. Someone who has been arrested previously and in fact is on probation / prarole. I made the decision to use the CHECKMATE service to look up this person who, once again was sitting in jail at the time. I put the needed information into the browser then the name came up and low and behold I get told this person has NO criminal record. I got the correct address and DOB but according to all of their information no criminal record. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? So I call the company. I would need to upgrade and pay more money in order to get more information. Forget that I am not paying more money. The other option was to wait a few days and check again. I waited and I checked and nothing I then put in the name of another person that I am positive has a criminal record and is a sex offender. Once again no record!!! Then what I get is a list of about 25 pictures of people with a name that is the same or close to the same as the person I am looking for…..could be one of these people. It was NONE of these people. Again, I could pay more money and upgrade to get the information I want!! So basically when you sign up for this service and pay the money do not expect anything but a list of addresses! That is all you are ever going to get. NEVER WILL YOU GET AN ACTUAL BACKGROUND CHECK or list of anything that looks like whether or not someone has or has not been arrested. NEVER WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS SERVICE AS THERE IS NO SERVICE YOU CAN GET THE ADDRESS FROM THE PHONE BOOK AND SAVE YOUR MONEY!! Plus they are doing a disservice to the community by saying people do not have an arrest record and are not sex offenders all in the name of greed, give them more money and more money and they might tell you information that you are looking for to keep you safe.
