(there are countless others that we have not checked out yet)
Please note that there are many sites linked to a company site known as UndercoverDetective.com. In the past several months, Undercover Detective has taken over most of the license plate search membership scam market. Undercover Detective does not display company or contact information on their sites. We recently contacted the better business bureau to attain more information on this company that has done a good job on keeping private. As soon as we know more information on this company, we will display it.
There are other sites that DO NOT display company names, addresses, or phone numbers. It would be a understatement to state you should NOT pay money to an unidentified company or person.
What is the problem with these sites?
First, its the way they advertise.
They fool customers into buying a membership by making them believe they deliver the information the customer is seeking. The site may either state they provide unlimited access to records, or they may provide an instant search menu where a person enters a license plate number and state, and then they state they have a record or the info your seeking. Regardless what these sites state, they DO NOT have the information nor do they deliver the record. What ends up happening is that either they provide links for members to choose to go to, or they automatically link members to another site. In the end, the customer pays a membership and receives no license plate record.
Second, they flood the internet with dishonest sites?
What happens when you flood the internet with sites that do not deliver what they state? The honest companies get pushed down in search engine rankings, and people just wont trust any site, regardless if the site is legitimate or not.
Each day we receive calls in reference to whether we are legitimate or not. It does not matter how many warnings we post about these member sites, we still get calls from customers complaining that they paid membership fees to 3 different web sites and they did not get what they were promised.
If you are aware of any other membership sites, please email us the site address and we will check them out.
