Is there a charge for TruthFinder?

Yes, TruthFinder does require you to pay a fee between $26 and $30 per month. Be aware that TruthFinder will continue to automatically charge you unless you cancel the service. This often requires a phone call and can take many hours, according to some online reviews we read.

Call (800) 699-8081 or go to your membership settings at https://www.truthfinder.com/login. If you believe you did not approve of the subscription charges you can ask for a refund from TruthFinder. If the refund provided is not satisfactory you can dispute any charges made in the last 60 days with your credit card provider.

Does TruthFinder notify the person you look up?

Your TruthFinder search history is always private, so the person in question will never know that you searched for their report.

It is but be sure you comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Failing to comply with the act can lead to substantial fines. TruthFinder is not a consumer reporting agency. This means you cannot use the information to make decisions about consumer credit, employees, insurance, tenant screening, or other purposes that would require FCRA compliance.

Is TruthFinder free?

There is no free version or TruthFinder free trial. TruthFinder needs to pay money to public records offices to access their files, so they charge users for every search.

Can you trust TruthFinder?

Many people wonder, "Is TruthFinder safe?" or, "Is TruthFinder a scam?" TruthFinder Inc. is a registered US company but there are many complaints online. These complaints mostly focus on being subscribed to automatic billing plans that they were not aware of, difficulty in canceling the automatic billing, and difficulty in having information removed or corrected.

What is the price range for using TruthFinder?

Are TruthFinder and Instant Checkmate the same company?

TruthFinder and Instant Checkmate are both parts of The Control Group Media Company. TruthFinder launched in 2015, around a year after Instant Checkmate was fined $525,000 by the FTC for FCRA violations.
