License Plate Lookup
Burbridge Detective Agency, LLC BBB Business Review

Based on reports we receive by customers each day, we understand some, or perhaps many, of you had been scammed by sites offering FREE License Plate Searches. Please understand that current license plate owner records are government records which are private, and can ONLY be attained legally though the state vehicle registration records department, or through access from law enforcement & licensed investigators. Note that just about every site listed on top google ranked pages is a subscription scam. After an initial fake search of a license plate is perform, the site will then instruct visitors to pay for a subscription membership. Then after payment, members are provided with the following scenarios depending on the site: 1. They are immediately linked to another site to pay additional charges for each search, 2. Members are provided false owner records (vehicle make and model may match but current owner name and address is FALSE), or 3. Members are provided with NO record and only information on how to attain a license plate record from a state. In the end, members are left paying recurring subscription fees for either NO or FALSE vehicle owner records.We have learned from victims that the following sites had misled them.****

There are countless more sites.
Note that these sites do not display a legal company name & business address so legal actions can not be taken against them. Site owners also keep their information off of site directories so that the public can not identify them

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 current 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. What generally ends up happening is that either they provide links for members to choose to go pay another site for the information, or they automatically link members to another site. In the end, the customer is locked into a monthly or annual paying membership and receives either an outdated record from a link site and purchase, or no information at all.

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..
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 scam site that is not listed above, please email us the site address. We will check them out, and add them to the list.
