How to Cancel Your Inteligator Membership

I wanted to add a quick comment prior to you reading further.  I have received literally hundreds of comments on this article.  Unfortunately, nearly every comment is some variation on a request that I cancel someone’s inteligator account.  Let me again clearly state that I DO NOT OWN INTELIGATOR!  I wrote this to help people who are confused as to how to cancel their subscription.  For those of you who wish to share a comment at the end of this article, I welcome you!  But please do not ask me to cancel your subscription as I have no way of doing this for you!  Now, on to the article…..

I have had many people ask me how to cancel a recurring membership with Inteligator.  Let me first say that in my opinion, none of the “unlimited” background check services are worth much.  Background checks cost too much to produce for a company to offer unlimited access for basically the same price as a single decent report.  Bottom line, this goes back to the common statement that, “You get what you pay for”.  If you are serious about needing a background check, then you ought to be using a service that charges on a “per report” basis. 

In regards to inteligator, I have noticed that some overly aggressive salespeople (in no way affiliated with this blog or me personally) have failed to mention that this is a recurring billing program.  Even though the fact that this is a product that bills customers on a monthly basis is clearly stated on the checkout page, many people have not seen or noticed that information.  They do not realize they are being billed monthly until they see the charge on their credit card a month or two down the line.  This creates some very unhappy customers!

So, for those of you seeking to cancel your subscription to Inteligator for whatever reason, let me walk you through the process.  But before I d0 so, allow me to again clarify that I DO NOT OWN Inteligator.com!  I chose to write this article as a personal courtesy to the many people who have come to me seeking advice on how to cancel their monthly subscription to the Inteligator Unlimited Background check plan.   I am not exactly sure why everyone isn’t simply asking Inteligator directly.  But either way, I am happy to do all I can to help people understand what they need to do.  No one should ever face a situation where they purchased an online product or service and then have no idea how to return the product or cancel the service. 

As for the cancellation procedure itself, this has changed several times over the last couple years so you should be sure to visit Inteligator’s “Terms or Service Agreement” page  in order to make sure you have the most accurate information.  Following is some pertinent information from that page:  

Terms of Purchase
 Payment of fees for purchases of InteliGator services must be made with either a valid credit or debit card (Payment Information). If your Payment Information is insufficient, or not accurate, current, and complete, and you do not notify us promptly when such information changes, we may suspend or terminate your account and refuse any use of InteliGator.
 
You may choose to purchase a 3, 4, 7 or 14 day trial to InteliGator’s Basic or Advanced membership. If you decide to cancel within the trial period, you will only be
charged the trial period fee. To cancel during the trial period, contact InteliGator within the trial period by sending in your cancelation request to cancellations@inteligator.com.  Please note that trial period fees are billed in advance; we will not refund the unused portion of your trial period. 
 
Following the trial period, your membership fees (Fees) will be billed to the credit or debit card provided as part of your Payment Information on a one-time yearly or monthly recurring basis, depending upon your chosen membership level.
Inteligator has recently also provided a specific page on their website to assist their customers through the cancellation process.  You can access that page by CLICKING HERE.  According to what I read in Inteligator’s documentation, you must submit your cancellation request 24 hours before the deadline of either your trial or the beginning of your next billing cycle in order to avoid further charges.  Personally, I think this is a bunch of garbage!  You should never be required to submit a request to terminate a service 24 hours before the deadline!  They should allow you to submit your request anytime prior to the actual deadline but that is how they do it so be warned! 
 
I hope this information helps and welcome any comments, suggestions or questions.  If you are serious about running a background check then visit CompleteReviews.net for reviews of the best, most legitimate background check providers on the internet.

Is There Someone Else?

When you first meet someone that you really fall for, it is hard to think rationally.  That’s why they say, “love is blind”.  Everyone has met someone that turned their world upside down.  That feeling is simply incomparable.  You feel like you’re walking in the clouds, you’re happy, excited and you feel like your’re 16 again.  You find yourself smiling at nothing at all and you are so caught up in the way you feel that you wouldn’t know it if the world stopped turning.  However, how do you know if that person is really who they say they are?

Reverse Look Up On Cell Phone Numbers

For as long as I can remember, if I wanted to know someone’s phone number I could just grab that huge ugly yellow book and look it up. If I wanted to know who owned a phone number I could just call information services. Then we recieved a gift from heaven… caller id! Gone were the days I spent prank calling random people in my town cause if I did, they called me right back and asked for my parents!

Caller id was such a cool invention because it helped remove anonymity from the telephone. It made people more accountable for their actions. Of course some learned ways to work around that little box but for the most part, it served its purpose.

Well, unfortunately, anonymity has re-entered the world of electronic communications. Only this time it is cellular phones that are the culprit. How does one go about looking up someone’s cell phone number? Or better yet, how do you find out who owns a specific cell number? Where is that big yellow book? It is on the internet my friend and it is easier than ever to find what you are looking for!

Armed with just a cell phone number, reverse phone look up services can allow you to find not only the owner of that phone number, but also their address, criminal history, mortgage carrier, relatives, neighbors and more. Now that is some serious power!

The only drawback is that reverse phone look ups are not free. Some internet ads may lure you in with claims that they are free but, trust me, it is just a way to hook you in. By “free” they mean, the search is free to do. Of course if you want to actually see the information that results from said search… well that part is not so free.

www.CompleteReviews.net has invested countless hours into research and testing the reverse phone lookup marketplace and we have uncovered some excellent products. These services do not claim to be free. They tell you right up front what you are going to have to pay for their services. By the way, it is generally about $14 for a successful search but all 3 top products offer unlimited search add-ons for less than $10. The sites we recommend have all passed rigorous testing protocols that have proven they have the data (over 3 billion records to work with) to backup their assertion that they are the best in the industry.

So you can spend hours and waste money chasing after the ads you will find all over the internet claiming free services, or you can go with a trusted, tested, proven product that will provide you with exactly what you need… information!

Dating Advice: Don’t Guess… Know!

Dating is one of the most crucial processes we will ever go through in our lives.  It is the chance we have to ensure that the person we may become involved with is someone we really do want to become involved with.  It is a fun and exciting time in life which can lead to long-term happiness and fulfillment.  Unfortunately, the choices we make during this critical time can also lead to great heartache if we are decieved by our partner.

We have this one shot to find out who they truly are.  But it is very hard to know for sure based on our interactions alone.  And, to make things more difficult, we can’t just start asking the person we are dating if they have a criminal record for example.  These kinds of questions can damage trust in the relationship. 

So how can we make sure that the person we are dating is really the man or woman of our dreams without them knowing that we are “checking up” on them?  The answer is simple; we use public record searching. 

Did you know that, armed with just a cell phone number, you can find out a ton of information about someone?  With just this tiny piece of information, you can run a full background check on practically anyone.  And reverse phone lookups are just the tip of the iceburg.  With just a few mouse clicks you can find out if your “potentially” signficant other has a criminal record or if they have ever been married (or God forbid, are married). 

And you can do all this in complete anonymity!  They will have no idea that you are checking up on them so you do not have to ask any “sensitive” questions early on in a relationship.  It is easy, inexpensive and so, so important!

Do not guess when it comes to your happiness… know!  Make sure you truly know who you are dating.

Who Owns This Number?

Who doesn’t have a cell phone nowadays?  Just look around the next time you are driving (hopefully as the passenger) and notice how many people are talking on their phones.  In fact, more and more people are completely replacing their traditional land lines with cellular phones.  In the past, if you wanted to look up a phone number you could just use a phone book or sometimes call the operator.  With cell phones, this becomes more challenging.

Many people believe that it just isn’t possible to find the owner of a cellular phone number without that person’s direct consent but this is not necessarily true.  All phone records are owned by someone.  In the case of cell phone numbers, the ownership records are in the care of the cellular service provider.  And these providers make the phone records available to Public Search entities (for a price).

So how can you access this information?  How can you lookup the owner of a cell phone number?  Simple, you access one of the many reverse phone lookup sites, enter the phone number and (after a small fee) you are presented with an amazing amount of information on that individual.

Be wary, however, as there are many scams out there.  Some sites will profess to have the information you need only to not produce results after you have paid for the search.  Finding the right site is the most important step in the process of conducting reverse phone lookups.

www.CompleteReviews.net/reversephonelookup.html is a third-party review site dedicated to testing and ranking reverse phone lookup services.  They have done extensive testing of many of the available services and have ranked their top 3 recommended sites.  The provide a detailed review of each provider along with current pricing information.

Be a smart consumer and know before you buy.  Using a review site saves you time and money!

Make Peace With a Reverse Cell Phone Lookup

Your boyfriend is acting strange.  He’s been late to pick you up a few times recently, and he seems withdrawn and quiet while you’re together.  He’s always been quick with a joke, and talkative.  But now, it’s like he’s eager to get the date over with.  Then you begin to notice the phone calls.  More and more often, his cell phone rings while you’re together, and he needs to step away to talk quietly to the voice on the other end.  He never used to do that.

Suspicions are growing, and you need to somehow put your mind at rest, or it’s going to blow up into an argument.  You’ve never had a real fight, and you don’t want it to go there, but the more you dwell on the clues you’ve seen, the more you’re wondering if he’s seeing someone else.  Where do you start?  What do you do or say to relieve the stress?  One of the simplest, and most effective actions you can take under these circumstances is to start with the “mystery cell phone caller.”  Why?  Because you can accomplish this without any confrontation at all.

Simply find out what number keeps calling, and write it down.  Later, when you’re alone, go to one of the sites online that offer a reverse cell phone lookup.  These sites are becoming more common, although they didn’t even exist a short time ago.  By entering the number and paying a small fee, you are provided with the name of the cell phone’s owner, their address, and many other pieces of information from the public record about the individual.  If she’s a potential home-wrecker, you have the facts to use as you see fit.  If it’s purely innocent, you have the peace of mind you were looking for.

This same technique can be very useful under the more serious situation of marital infidelity.  If the same scenario described above occurs in a marriage, it can result in tremendous heartache and even legal action, especially when children are involved.  Avoiding the rigors of suspicion and arguments and regaining peace in the home is truly important. 

If your spouse is giving you cause for concern, you may choose to use the reverse cell phone search for the same reason.  Then, when you determine the mystery caller is a potential threat to your marriage, use the facts you have learned as a basis for discussion with your spouse.  If you find the mystery caller is completely harmless, this too can serve as a basis for meaningful conversation, letting your spouse know how their behavior made you feel.  In both cases, the simple use of an inexpensive online search brings peace during a difficult time.  And who can put a price on that?

Using Reverse Cell Phone Search For Security Reasons

 In years gone by, private investigators were able to call in some favors at the phone company and find out who owned a particular phone number.  Police have always been able to obtain this information if necessary.  The ability to search for the owner of a landline phone has been available to the public for years, but only recently has reverse lookup been extended to cell phones.  Because the databases necessary to make this possible are in control of the individual cell phone service providers, obtaining this information is not free.  But, for a modest fee, the information available would stagger your mind!

So why do people use this technology?  There are many reasons, some of which are simple conveniences.  But there are some very serious reasons why this service may benefit you.  For example, in some cases, people use reverse cell phone lookups to identify and stop prank callers from harassing them continually.  In most situations, these prank callers are simply misguided kids thinking they are having fun.  But in some cases, it’s more serious than that. 

Sometimes a prank call is just one step in a series of harassment or threatening behavior that is only seemingly harmless because of the anonymity of the prank caller.  While some may view a prank call as an irritation, others are truly terrorized by the idea of a stranger calling to determine if they are home or to disrupt their peace of mind.  By using reverse cell phone lookup, you can strip that veil of anonymity from the caller.  This takes the fun out of it for those who think it’s fun, and gets the serious callers a step closer to being caught by law enforcement officers.

Another serious benefit of reverse cell phone lookups is in determining who your children are speaking to on their cell phones.  In most cases, especially if parents and children have good, open lines of communication, this will not be a big issue.  But in the circumstance where a parent feels their child may be keeping something from them, or perhaps the child has been in trouble before, a parent may feel the need to keep a tighter hold on the leash, so to speak.  By checking out your child’s phone friends using a reverse cell phone search, you have the opportunity to cut off ties between your child and an unwanted associate.  Or, you can use the information you receive to open up a dialogue with your child, helping them reason on the pros and cons of associating with so-and-so.  Although the effort involved is potentially extensive, the results in this case are more than worth the effort.  So, in both cases, reverse cell phone lookup capability offers a huge benefit in resolving potentially serious situations before they get out of hand.

The Truth About Public Record Searching…

Public Records Searches have become a huge online business. It honestly scares me how much information anyone can find about me with only a few minutes of time and a web browser. Of course, that goes both ways. There are so many different reasons why a Public Records Search can come in handy or even downright necessary. For example, they can be extremely helpful when trying to protect your children.

Even though the source of all the data is the same, the products and services that access that data are very different. Prior to ever spending any money on a public records search services, it is important to know how they compare and which ones are real products versus scams. Review sites are a must as they independently rank the best public records search services. I recommend http://www.CompleteReviews.net for detailed reviews of all the top public records search services.

They break the public records search services into categories as there are so many different types of searches. They then rank the top three products in each of the following categories:

Unlimited Search services (the perfect solution for investigative parenting).
Bakground Check services.
Criminal Records searches.
Court Record Searches.
Social Security Number Record searches. (scary…)
Sex Offender Registry search services.
Reverse Phone Lookup services (a must have for anyone with a child who owns a cell phone).
Reverse eMail Lookup services (if your child is online, you need to check this out!)
Marriage Records search.
Divorce Records search.
Birth Records search.
Death Records search.
People Locator.
Commercial Grade Detective Products.
The most important thing to note is that you should never be tricked into paying for that which is easily accessible for free. Most public search records are by nature freely available. But that doesn’t mean they are easily accessible. And some of the records are not accessible at all without utilizing a paid service with access to the information.

Take Reverse Phone Lookups for example. You should rarely be charged for a landline phone number. The basic rule of thumb is that if it is listed in a phone book, you can find it for free. Services like http://www.whitepages.com and http://www.anywho.com are excellent resources. But how do you find the owner of an unlisted number or better yet, a cell phone? That is where Reverse Phone Lookups become essential. www.CompleteReviews.net/ ranks the top three best sites for these services.

Again, don’t get caught paying for easily accessible free services. Make sure the service is independently reviewed and rated and you will get what you pay for and more!

Reverse Phone Lookup

Reverse Phone Lookups have been a hot item for some time now. So many sites have popped up that offer to tell you exactly who owns a specific phone number. Are these searches a waste of money? Is it all a big scam? Yes and no…

First of all, we need to examine the difference between a Reverse Phone Lookup and Reverse Cell Phone Lookup. A good question to ask yourself is, “Can I likely find this phone number in a regular phone book?”. If the answer is “yes” then you should not be paying a service to report the owner of that phone number. All you need to do in this case is use any free phone listing service such as:

http://www.WhitePages.com

http://www.anywho.com

But if you are dealing with a cell phone or even an “unlisted” number, a paid service is the way to go. Again, however, there are many scams out there. I have seen some services that make you think they have results which you must pay to see only to find out that the results are incorrect or bogus. Of course, you cannot figure out how to get your money back.  I have done a lot of research and it is all includede on my review site for all Public Records Search www.CompleteReviews.net.

Being charged for a reverse phone lookup should never happen. Paying for an unlisted lookup or especially a cell phone is totally appropriate.
