    Great service. I was able to find my aunt and my cousins the first day I signed up. All the information they gave me was accurate. I even found friends from 20 years ago.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    I needed to find several people (children of an elderly friend). All were located along with their current addresses. I also needed to do a background check on a potential lessor for my apartment. The service worked very well. It identified some questionable history from nearly twenty years but showed he has been clean since then. If I need this type of service in the future, I will use this service.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    I received a billing for roughly $84 for their service. I thought it was for my monthly service. I called customer support to cancel my service due to the price. The customer service lady was able to offer me a better service at a better price. She did a wonderful job.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Trouble finding some information

    While Instant Checkmate background checking service is very thorough and covers every conceivable aspect of a person's history, I did find that they were unable to provide certain information in my specific instance. I am aware that the person I was researching has at least one arrest on his/her record, yet I was unable to find any police records on this site. I was somewhat disappointed by this shortcoming.

    I would like to praise the exceptional customer support I received when I called Checkmate's 1-800 number. The gentleman that answered my call was very courteous, friendly, thorough, and efficient. He processed my request in a prompt fashion and even gave me a reasonable explanation as to why I was unable to find the information I had been looking for.

    Even though I was initially disappointed by the lack of information, I was extremely impressed with the quality of customer service and I would ultimately recommend this site to anyone seeking this type of service.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Not bad

    I found more information on my own than the email and phone searches combined.

    The person and property searches are decent.

    I am not happy the "free" phone searches wound up signing me up for additional charges.

    The combination of phone, email and person searches is less expensive than the person search alone.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Inaccurate information

    I canceled this after finding so many serious inaccuracies on background checks. When I called to cancel, I spoke to a very reasonable and professional young man. I was expecting to get an argument or to be left on hold forever when I called to cancel. I was pleasantly surprised by the professional way that it was handled. He also checked on some of the inaccuracies and took them off for me.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Instant Checkmate is an incredible resource. It makes finding old friends very easy. I wish a had more time to spend. The amount of information gathered under one roof is a huge time-saver. The site itself is well thought out and very easy to use. Thank you Instant Checkmate! Well done.
