License Plate Search Scam Sites

The following sites advertise they provide license plate records. They either claim they have a record from a preliminary search (customers input license plate information into a fake search), or they claim to provide UNLIMITED searches for a membership fee. Generally these sites DO NOT provide license plate records. Some will provide links to other sites, while others provide nothing. Regardless, the customer does not receive a record for their payment. Nearly all these sites know that they are misleading customers, because they provide no company contact information on their sites.

(there are countless others that we have not checked out yet)

Please note that there are many 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 other membership sites, please email us the site address and we will check them out.
