SCAM ALERT! 
License Plate # Lookups

Over 95% of all License Plate Lookup sites are SCAMS!

The information presented on this web site is provided by Docusearch Investigations, a fully licensed and insured private investigation firm. It is intended to educate consumers on how to quickly identify scam web sites offering license plate lookups. Even if you choose another firm, please take 3 minutes to review this information. When searching for a firm to reverse a license plate, always follow these three common sense rules. Doing so may save you hundreds of dollars and hours of valuable time:

Common Sense Rule #1:

Stay clear from any website that doesn’t publish their contact telephone number.
Most of these scam sites appear overnight and aren’t even real businesses, rather affiliate fronts for subscription software. Look for their phone number. If you don’t have the ability to speak with a live person, it is most certainly a scam.

Common Sense Rule #2:

There is no such thing as an instant license plate # lookup.
You have probably already visited several websites promising unlimited license plate lookups delivered instantly, for a low access fee or database subscription fee. What these websites don’t tell you is that they are providing obsolete information collected from outdated databases. Despite what you may have been told, the DMV does not sell current registration records to the public OR to private databases. It is protected information available only to law enforcement and licensed private investigators who demonstrate a need for the information.

These websites offering “instant” License Plate Searches are the biggest scams out there. They lure you in by advertising that the search is free; simply enter the license plate number you’re searching. After some fancy computer animations, their software informs you that your desired information has been found–just pay a one-time, or worse, a continual subscription fee to access it. The problem is, even if they happen to have a record for the license plate number you searched, it won’t be for the current owner or current vehicle, since that information is protected.

Common Sense Rule #3:

Only buy from a reputable state licensed, insured investigative firm.
Just as you wouldn’t hire an unlicensed, uninsured contractor, providers of information are no different. State licensed investigators answer to governmental agencies and are bonded and/or insured. They are much less likely to perpetrate a scam. They also have access to information sources that others don’t. Sure, it will probably cost $35-$45 for a license plate lookup, but at least you’ll be assured that the information returned is guaranteed to be current and accurate. After all, what good is obsolete information?

Following these three simple rules should keep you safe. For further information about license plate lookups, including the types of people who claim to provide them, please see the Related Articles section on the right side of this page.

    What about CLICKBANK.com to COMPLAIN AND/OR GET YOUR REFUND BACK. Now this maybe a problem. DOES CLICKBANK.com EXISTS??? When reading on these sights before you sign up, we have noticed that a few of the sights out there loop this above sight into their support response…if your not happy, contact clickbank.com. We thought individuals out there would want to have this feedback before venturing out. Thank you for your time and assistance with this email comment.

    • admin says:

      Linda, Thank you for your comment. Click-bank is nothing more than a billing agent. You will typically see Click-bank act as the billing agent for smaller affiliate subscription sites. Unfortunately, since they have nothing to do with the company actually selling the product, there is nobody to complain to.

  2. As a re-possesor I believe the content matter here is rattling fantastic , I appreciate your hard work. You should keep it up forever! Best of luck.

  3. Bell says:

    Thank you for the information. I believe http://www.license-plate-search.org/ aka Click Bank is a scam. I did an initial search of a license plate and it took me to a page – which made me believe the site had information that I needed but I had to choose a membership fee and put my credit card information. After I enter all the necessary credit card data, I got nothing. It came back with a “0 result”. The site is also called undercoverdective.com. I don’t recommend using that site. It’s a total scam.

  4. john says:

    huge piece of writing. I just came across your site and wanted to let you know that I have certainly enjoyed browsing your blogs. At any rate I’m going to be following your feed and I hope you’re posting again soon.

  5. RJ says:

    Steer clear of members.spypi.com! Just shelled out 27.94 for VIP Lifetime Premium Membership with Instant Access To Search Over 1.1 Billion Files…yada,yada,yada. I can assure it is a patented wild goose chase.

  6. Nannook says:

    Tkx for saving me a Ton of wasted time and money, …it matters

  7. louis says:

    I just got robbed of 24.95 for a tag search wish I had checked this blog first. stay clear of this site People-Records.net

  8. Ltdarkstar says:

    I have a publicdata.com account and have for 10 years now, it’s pretty up to date (not all plates are in there if the person opted-out of the bulk data sales stuff).. other than that I usually find what i’m looking for 50% of the time and it’s VERY cheap and worth every cent. It starts at $9.95 for 400 lookups. Make sure to check the state list (and when the database is updated) before subscribing to see if it’s right for you. I must say it’s helped me out a whole lot and LOVE IT!

  9. JR says:

    Thank you so much for the updates on license plate scams. I was about to go the the very sutes and purchase a 24.95 look-up ,icebse plate. this was a life savor. Not ot mention tha cash saved. Thank you for your web-site scam alert. I will be careful inselecting a license plate search website.

  10. karina kaplan says:

    Very helpful information. Thank u soo much.

  11. Random says:

    Everify.com is a scam

  12. Michael Richardson says:

    Everify is out dated, site does not function properly

    In my opinion Everify is a scam

  13. amy says:

    everify.com is definitely a scam.. do not use!!!!

  14. dbomacon@yahoo.com says:

    I paid for a license plate lookupwith clickbank. Once I ordered the search, they came back with no License plate with that number found. I contacted clickbank and requested a refund, got my money back. Don’t use paypal. Paypal has a policy: No Refund for virtual goods; i.e. if it is not an item that can be physically shipped and tracked, they won’t refund your money because you can’t prove that you did not receive the report.

  15. CustomizableLicensePlates says:

    I found your site very useful . There is very helpful information.Thanks

  16. Name says:

    dmvfiles.org is a scam.

  17. rs says:

    E Verify is a scam i purchased it to find some info and got 0 results stay away from this site its a real scam and they will not contact you back

  18. Silky says:

    SearchQuarry has online reviews that are crazy, non-specific, and clearly written by bots to mislead people into thinking the site is legitimate. They have gone to the trouble to post at least three misleading reviews. I didn’t pay to get information on the reckless driver who has nearly hit me twice now in two weeks, and I’m glad I didn’t add “credit card fraud” to my troubles! I have a feeling that giving them personal information about myself would have led to very unpleasant things.
