MyLife.com Reviews – Legit or Scam?

MyLife.com

 

MyLife.com is a familiar name to many people, due to their extensive television advertising.  My Life is a website that claims to be able to connect you with past friends and acquaintances, and also to let you know who is searching for you online.

MyLife often claims that it will let you know who is searching for you “for free.”  Technically, this is true.  Once you enter your name into their site, it will give you information like “5 Men and 11 Women are searching for you” including one more specific example, such as, “A 32 year old woman who lives in Anytown, USA and attended American University is looking for you.”

However, to get the specific names and details of those that are searching for you – or the details of the people you are searching for – you must become a paid member of the site.

What Do I Get as a Paid Member of MyLife?

Generally as a paid member of MyLife.com you get a big headache.  The complaints about this company are all over the internet, and the accusations being made are fairly serious.  They include, but are not limited to:

  1. MyLife provides search results that are inaccurate and sometimes even made up, just to entice you to become a member.
  2. MyLife “hacks” your email account and spams your contact list with invitations from you to join MyLife.com.
  3. MyLife asks you to authorize your credit card to be charged a certain amount, but then charges you far more and more often than they said.

The first claim charges that My Life provides you with a glimpse of people that are looking for you to entice you to become a paid member.  After you do become a paid member, however, you receive a list of names that you are completely unfamiliar with.  Angry customers say this is because MyLife is making up the list of people who are searching for you.

One customer was so convinced of this, he entered his name as gibberish, similar to “sfg shgshdhsg,” and was informed that seven people were searching for him.

Secondly, the privacy policy of MyLife.com does admit they will scan your email contacts and send invitations out to those who aren’t yet members of MyLife.  However, they claim they will only do this with your permission.  While the argument has been made that simply becoming a member of MyLife is the act of giving permission, many complaints have been filed by people who say they never become a paid member of MyLife, but their email accounts were hacked anyway after they visited the website.

Finally, the Terms and Conditions policy states that when you sign up for their services, you are also signed up for the services of third party institutions, though these third parties and the cost of their services are not listed.  In addition, the Terms claim that only some of the website’s functions are considered free with membership, while others incur additional fees.  However, nowhere on their website do they explain which functions are included and which cost extra.

This is why customers have experienced signing up for membership on one day, and sometimes within 24 hours their credit card has been charged with over $60 of extra fees.  Other customers say they expected to pay a low amount for their monthly membership and ended up with almost $200 in charges after the month subscription was up.

All these claims and more have been outlined in a class action lawsuit currently filed in the state of California against MyLife.com.  If you are looking for a way to reconnect with former co-workers and classmates, you should probably stick to the more established search engines and social networking sites.

  • I wish I saw this before paying the $1 trial even though I cancelled it same day. I got charged a $45 fee for looking at my moms profile not realizing I could only view my own. Huge scam. The information is not even accurate.
  • MyLife lies.

    When searching my name on the internet, I find in red letters;

    "K*******m DOES have Arrest or Criminal Records."

    I have never been arrested and I do not have a criminal record. I have never been in court.

    This is outrageous and defamatory.

    I have contacted mylife three times to remove my profile, I followed the profile removal protocol, and they respond by email and give me reference numbers but then don't follow-up. Ignored.

    I will follow with legal action if it comes to this. People have to stand up to this blatant disregard for truth and willful defamation.
  • Down right SSSCCCAAAMMMMMEEERRRS
  • mylife.com TOTAL SCAM!!!!!! Has complete rubbish on my report. I have NEVER been arrested or incarcerated but yet they have a BIG RED FLAG under my name stating I have! I'd be VERY interested in being part of a class action lawsuit to shut down and stop these criminals for publishing false and derogatory information on lots of law abiding individuals.

  • I recently deactivated my account due to being double charged 19.95. The customer service agent was being rude. I'm thinking that this site is a scam
  • I signed up for what I thought was $1.00 onetime search fee. Three days later they charged me a three month membership fee $41.85. I called them and they claim the website informed me of this charge. This is a scam.
