“Stole my money”

Written on: 09/04/2014 by freetail (4 reviews written)

I have never heard of them or registered with them and yet Peopletracer.co.uk still took £29.94 from my Barclaycard. I have reported this to the bank and have tried calling them but the phone keeps going through to voicemail (straight away) and no-one's called me back. The Live Chat is never open and I would avoid submitting your details for a 'call-back' as God only knows what they'll do with that information!] I would avoid at all costs and report any fraudulent activity to your bank (and… Read Full Review

They have now emailed and phoned me and are investigating, but I'm still not happy or able to recommend.

“I didn't register with them”

I never heard of them before, but they took £49.95 out of my account, making it go overdrawn. I have reported this to the bank. Would give it negative stars if possible… Read Full Review

“Rogue Traders- Avoid them like the plague !!!”

Written on: 08/10/2013

I signed up to their free 14 day trial and searched for 1 person unsuccessfully. They charged my credit card account £49.95 4 weeks later and then charged me again a year later. This is inertia selling which I think is illegal.  Avoid them- they have a flashy web site but are useless. Not only that but they have no compunction about robbing your credit card account when they know that they have not provided a service. The only appropriate descriptive words are rubbish and unethical… Read Full Review

“Information supplied is NOT up to date”

Written on: 07/10/2013

I registered believing I could view the most up to date electoral registers - but you can't. A complete waste of money. I asked for a refund and they refused. I would avoid this company like the plague… Read Full Review

“Stay FAR away”

Written on: 07/05/2013

I signed up for a free 14 day trial on this site to see if I could find some information on some relatives. I performed three searches, none of which gave me any more information than the BT online white pages. So, I decided to cancel. The terms and conditions clearly state that an account can be cancelled in less than 14 days and not be charged. Nevertheless, when I tried to cancel I received a message that my account was not yet set up. Not too upset yet, I tried to log in two days later… Read Full Review

You think- great! Worth a 14 day trial period, I needed urgently to contact one of Mum's carers.... No tel no available, so attempted to cancel. AAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! You manage to send an email saying please cancel - on the same day. Have to await 24 hours, they write back... So did....then it says go into MY ACCOUNT.... Where the hell is that?? It puts you back out of their site, then when you try and log in....surprise, surprise it does not accept your log in details. So, after half an hour of… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE”

Written on: 20/01/2013 by CronusSmith (1 review written)

As with other people I signed up for FREE 14 day trial and cancelled well before the 14 days were up but I was still charged £49.95. Am in the process of getting my money back and I am in contacts with Trading Standards. If I could give the site less than 1 star I would!… Read Full Review

“Absolute Scam!”

Written on: 03/01/2013 by ManchesterKathy (2 reviews written)

I signed up for a 14 day free trial then cancelled it two days later. The conditions clearly stated that if you cancelled during the 14 days you would not be charged. Needless to say, 2 weeks after joining, £49.95 was taken from my card without my authorisation. The company denied that I had cancelled the account and refused to give a refund. I had to go through my bank and got my money back having lodged a formal dispute with them. You only have to read the reviews on here and other… Read Full Review

Your bank should be able to take back the money. It was when I emailed them asking for their business address in order to send a 'letter before action' (ie the final letter you send to a company before commencing court action) that they decided to start co-operating!

“DO NOT USE PEOPLE TRACER”

Written on: 19/10/2012 by Bunnygirl16 (1 review written)

I signed up for a free trial with People Tracer but PLEASE don't do the same. Unbelievably for an internet company they send you NO registration emails and NO communication at all regarding your account so you simply have to remember to find their site to close the trial or else you get charged. Of course this is how they make their money. They have charged me in full now yet I have no comms from them to say an account is set up!! SCAMMERS - plain and simple. My bank is getting my money… Read Full Review

“Rubbish Customer Service”

Written on: 20/09/2012 by Sam.G (1 review written)

The site came up on an internet search and after trying the free service without success, my internet connection developed problems. When I finally got back online I telephoned peopletracer to explain that the annual subscription had only just been debitted from my account. I was advised to email with an explanation and if appropriately a refund may be considered. Refund!! Not a chance its how they make their money, not one of my free searches returned a result..... Avoid at all costs… Read Full Review

“Misleading & Unhelpful”

Written on: 17/05/2012

This service is a subscription service that doesn't make this clear in their advertising or payment pages. Check the very small print. They will charge you for subsequent months without any warning and won't refund when you request cancelation. Very unfair terms and conditions and appalling customer service. AVOID at all costs don't waste your money. You a reputable supplier such as 192.com… Read Full Review

I clicked on people tracer last month to find a person/ address for which I paid £4.95. I did not find the person I was looking for and to top it all they have taken another £4.95 from my bank. I did not realise that this was a month;y subscription service. When I called them I was told it is all in the terms and conditions and there is a line of text halfway down the first page. There should be a law for these type of adverts that makes it clear that they are running a subscription service. It should be stated on the top line before other text. DONT GO THERE!

“Misleading! Poor customer service!”

Written on: 04/01/2012 by adam29 (2 reviews written)

I was initially attracted to this website as I wanted to make a single search of the electoral register. The offer was presented as 5 searches for £3.99. More than I needed but as it was the minimum I went for it. Registered with the website and paid by debit card. Three months later I realised that £3.99 was being debited every month. Puzzled I contacted customer services to cancel and get a refund. I was was told that I should have read the terms and conditions and that a full refund would… Read Full Review
