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.

Average Rating for " My Life " is 1.14 out of 5 based on 119 reviews.
  • My Life also tries to bait you by sending you 20 emails a day stating your reputatIon may be ruined, there are court actions and criminal activities found under your name, click here to find out what they are and get them corrected...AFTER YOU PAY TO JOIN, and is it true? um, no.. Ive recently had extensive background / credit checks done, and nothing. They are inappropriately baiting people with these emails and ruining peoples reputations. It also lists my parents, who btw never lived in this state, and shows them associated with my address in this state. FRAUD.
  • How is this business allowed to operate with incorrect information to try and get you to pay for their membership they should be held liable for false slander and decption in order to gain profits
  • All the information is completely incorrect.... how is this legal? And they’re making it information accessible to people? It needs shut down ASAP . I don’t appreciate the wrong information being published about myself. I really hope no one takes this site seriously, this could cause some major problems. This needs to Be stopped.
  • What gets me is that anyone and I mean anyone who doesn't like you can go in anonymously and text anything they want about you... They can also change your personal information such as if you've ever been married or what vehicle you're driving or how many children you have or where you went to school. They can click a thumbs down several times to make your reputation rating go down. For example... Someone didn't like me so they went in and put my meter arrow from Good to Bad so anyone searching me would automatically see (also the First thing the would see) that the Reputation Meter was in the bad and therefore think that I was a bad person. This is not good for anyone! This is Bad!!
  • I'm still getting weekly reports on sites exposing my information. I keep them so I may use them to join the class action lawsuit.my email address has already been published by MyLife.I,m sure they hacked it. Google should be held responsible for not paying attention to their sights. We have a president who can get away with anything so it shouldn't be surprising that Mylife gets away with so much.
  • I signed up recently for MyLife, but hadn't paid anything. Earlier today, I paid for one month. I was afraid there was something on there that prospective employers might see. Some info on there is false. I think they scam people by showing something as if they have a criminal record. I don't have a criminal record, but was curious as to what was on there. I did not realize when I paid for one month that it automatically renews. I couldn't care feel the renewal without calling someone. I did call & speak to a person, but I don't think they are in the US. She told me my automatic renewal has been cancelled. I sure hope so! I received email stating it was & the woman also gave me a confirmation number. I look on my account & it still shows my credit card info (last 4 digits). I wish I could remove that from my account. MyLife doesn't need that info anymore. I wish I had not even paid for anything on MyLife. What I viewed didn't give me enough useful information. What a waste of money!
  • I filed a complaint with FTC today. I'm not sure she understood completely what the problem is. She was trying to tell me all the ways someone could get my information and I was telling her it's not my info, it's info they made up. their tel. No. Is955-957-72 or FTC.gov. The more people complain might get their attention. Don't worry about credit reports, they only use the three major reports.
  • These people are scumbag opportunists. I can't stop them from hitting my account month after month. I call them, no problem they say, and it's same crap different month for my debit card. Someone please shoot these people in the head.
    • Call your bank and tell them you’ve lost the card. They will assign a new number and mylife can no longer get your money from you
  • MyLife is facing another class action lawsuit. See https://cookcountyrecord.com/stories/511373194-class-action-people-finder-site-mylife-com-s-reputation-scores-violate-illinois-publicity-rights-law Hey judge, please do the world a favor, sink the company and issue Jeff (Jeffrey) Tinsley a lifetime ban for operating or materially investing in any Internet companies.
  • REMOVE MY FALSE AND TOTALLY INCORRECT INFORMATION IMMEDIATELY OR I WILL HAVE YOU SUED!!!!!! LEAH STEUER
