Our PeopleLooker Review: #4 Background Check Site 2017
Review by: Fatimah de Lange
With increasing connectivity in today’s world, we still manage to lose contact with relatives, friends and colleagues. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc work IF you know a few basic details and even then, unless someone has a picture you can identify, you can never be sure it’s the right person. PeopleLooker have done ALL the work for you by digitally combing through millions of public records and official databases to ensure you have the correct information compiled into 1 comprehensive report – at the touch of a few buttons!
Facing a search of my own I decided to use a search engine dedicated to finding out loved ones, friends and colleagues you may have lost contact with.
Please be advised that the searches you undertake are NOT meant to be used for FCRA compliance e.g Employment screening, domestic worker screening, credit or insurance assessments etc For more information regarding FAQs and the Dos and Don’t for PeopleLooker please refer to:

Our Full PeopleLooker Review:
My first pick off the bat was PeopleLooker. I had several friends recommend it when they were trying to organise a reunion for their graduating class last year and I’m glad they did – it was economical and extremely accurate – 2 of my favorite things!
The snapshot is the introduction to the site, it helps to have the basic info so unwanted results are eliminated as soon as possible. I had my friend’s name, surname, knew his rough age and last known city/state (5 years ago!)
I entered the basic info and was rewarded right away. I knew it was him because there was a recent photo next to the name and he looked exactly as he did 5 years ago.
The site gives you the option to print out the information as a pdf report – pretty handy !
I knew right away why I had lost contact, it seemed that his residential address and phone number had changed more than a few times in the last few years, easy to understand since his son has been a member of a well-known rock band for the last 5 years.
Regarding his email (let’s face it, it’s the fastest form of communication!), it provided 2 with the first being the most recent one. I know that all our digital movements leave digital trails but honestly, I’m amazed at the info you can pull for such a cheap fee.
The site provided more than the basic information should you need it but I was an extremely happy customer with the end goal being met within 3 minutes of my search – that is value for money 10 times over!
Fees / Pricing
One word – Unbelievable! Since I have an account with the site, I had access to unlimited and in depth reports. For those of you interested in joining up, these are your options:
– 1 month membership: $28.42/month
– 3 month membership: $19.89/month with savings of over 30% a month.
You will be charged $59.67 for the 3 month duration whereby should you not cancel, the service will automatically renew for the next 3 months.
|Background Check Fees|
Please Note: PeopleLooker is a subscription service that requires you to purchase a package whereupon monthly billing will be activated The monthly fees drop by over 30% if the 3 month package is selected, however this does not mean that upon the end of your chosen package, the service drops away. One needs to cancel a membership should it no longer be of use.
There are many sites out there that provide almost no assistance when one is trying to cancel a membership, PeopleLooker takes care of that right away with their hassle-free cancellation policy – all you need is your membership ID (provided in your welcome email or in the account details on the site) and access to a phone or the internet. They make it extremely easy to cancel which should put many of you at ease.
PeopleLooker contains an enormous database with amazing features for a people search engine
One Fee for unlimited reports – that’s one hell of a bargain at $28.42!
A user-friendly platform that works seamlessly on different devices including tablets and mobile phones.
Amazingly accurate results with the option to monitor your search in case there has been a change of detail/s.
Report Upgrade – Ability to upgrade your service to include more than the basic information including judgements, licenses and permits.
Court Runner – One has the ability to obtain a court runner should you need to find out if the information you have is the most up-to-date out there, that info is obtained from the courthouse.
Client / Customer Support Service
I have used quite a number of check sites and one thing that appeases me right away is seeing customer support offering their services without me looking for it.
The PeopleLooker customer service motto: “We pride ourselves on offering friendly and helpful support!” and this is Monday through Sunday. That’s great value and goes beyond the normal service hours for most businesses out there!
It is pretty easy to try out different websites because of flashy pop ups and strong advertising – I knew how the advertising game works but that doesn’t mean you get the 3 main factors that keeps customers coming back for more:
– Best Value for Money
– Recommendation from others
PeopleLooker provided a valuable service without me forking out a huge chunk of cash. With the current economic times being as harsh as they are, that’s something I greatly appreciate.
Amazing membership fee and quality service makes it our 4th choice overall for best background check site in 2017!Visit PeopleLooker
