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.

  • They will not let you cancel. Good luck...waiting on phone went from one min. Back to 30

    .over n over.

    SCAM
  • Scam....u cant cancel . They wont let you.
  • All my info was erroneous
  • I first encountered MyLife while googling myself on December 11, 2018. I contacted their privacy department asking for removal of the report. Today, January 2, 2018 it's not only still there but now on the top page of Google. The site includes my married and maiden name plus a lot of false information about me.

    I never accepted business with MyLife and never will.

    I have again demanded removal because this constitutes a doxxing threat. I have previously received death threats. Now MyLife is facilitating the malicious.
  • I was on hold for 1hr & 57 min. When I finally got to be the next call to be answered. We got DISCONNECTED. WHAT A PIS SO CALLED JUNK CI...🤨 hang them Up and strip them!!!!!!
  • Mylife.com is a scam and horrible reputationbuilder. Contact your BBB. I think they are fraudulent. More people need to seek federal and local trade commissions to stop them.
    • Agreed. Errors abound. How can they publish rubish that has real impacts on the subjects?? Aren’t there laws about that ?
  • I was given a moderate reputation rating supposedly based on the "reviews" of people who know me. Except that they were including reviews of a person with a slightly different name. I called to complain, since anyone who glanced at the meter but didn't bother to check out the details might think they had learned something about me. I was told that I could revise the page IF I became a paid customer; they would not simply fix their mistake. When I became irrate, I was told that they would take my whole page down for free. (I will say, they seem to have actually done so.)

    "Reputation is more important than credit." It's true, and these people are scam artists who ruin yours and then charge you to fix it. I hope some court awards the people who can calculate damages in dollars enough to put MyLife out of business.
  • Just to really check it out, put my mother’s name in. She’s been dead since 1991., but apparently she’s 77 and living in..... and has Liens and criminal records! Scam!
  • Mylife.com is a complete scam. I have found erroneous information that this site has listed concerning my background. I have also found that they list unknown reviewers of one's reputation. This site is basically a good site if some unscrupulous person or persons wish to launch a smear campaign against one of their enemies. The information listed on this site is wholly unreliable . Anyone really needing to investigate a person's background for a legitimate reason should hire a qualified private investigator that knows how to verify and validate or invalidate information that is published on these fraud websites. Do not rely on this website for true, accurate, and most importantly verified and validated information.
  • Mylife AKA: Lowlife, lying, scam artists.

    Do NOT give them one penny that will enable them to continue to BLACKMAIL people.

    Shame on them!
