    Intelius is a scam

    Overall Experience:

    Both Intelius and Omnisearch are owned by the same company and their websites work in the identically same way. They offer no pricing upfront. You have to put your name into a search field at which time the search engine pretends to be going over every record that exists on you. It takes about 5 minutes for it to process giving the impression of how thorough it is. Then it offers you a subscription for $29.95 a month but hidden in the wording is that you are actually paying $39.95 (non-refundable) for a one-time background search on yourself plus the $29.95 a month subscription. Once your account is active and you put a name into the search engine, it takes only 10 seconds to come back with results showing that the first search for 5 minutes is just a marketing ploy. I canceled the membership immediately but the company refused to refund my $39.95. Stay away! There are some legitimate sites but unless they offer their pricing plans upfront you should read the fine print.

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