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 161 reviews.
  • This a fraudulent listing of a name that does not belong to me and "My Life" keeps contacting me at my real name email with constant reminders that my info is exposed and people are looking at it, etc..They keep ignoring my request to unsubscribe this falseness.
  • I joined once. Now constantly get e-mails warning me that my reputation score is 7.5 out of 10. I think it is an enticement or rather scare tactic in order to find out what was said. I think it's b.s. Also, I noticed the so called people who are searching for me are from the same City and State that lo and behold I had searched for in the past.
    • I tried them a year ago for family tree research. Now it constantly emails me sending me "Look what we discovered about Wendy Lastname" and "Your reputation score is 7.5..." I am not curious enough to pay them to see what this is about. If anyone is really looking for me, they can easily find me on other social media.
  • they are horrible but this is how my ex husband finds me every time I move for free no less so I asked to be taken off but only happens for 48 hours or so then i'm back up
    • Paula, I read your comment on the Consumer Affairs site. This is very disturbing. I am worried about your safety as obviously your husband is a threat to you. Take this to your State General Attorney!
  • I use to be on Classmates.com then somehow this My life .com got on my emails they have buged me for the longest that my Reputation is runied , and my info is out there for everyone to see . How in the heck did they get all this ? i want to be in on a law sui , because i payed for classmates.com
  • Man I just found out I was registered on this site! I never even heard of them till now. Now I know how collection companies for bills I never had are calling me!
  • Complete scam. They didn't make it clear I would be charged $60 after the trial expired and you can only call to cancel, you can't do it on line. And what they do isn't worth that amount of money for 6 months. SCAM SCAM SCAM
  • While I had a paid subscription, MyLife was supposed to remove many sites where my info was posted only removed 2-3 according to page posted removal numbers. Since I am no longer a subscriber my risk alert is off the wall. It seems money is involved here. All of a sudden I am high risk, well no wonder everyone in the world as my personal info many more than before. I cannot even find a phone number where you are able to speak to a live person. I do not trust this company.
  • I got emails from this place saying people were searching for me. And that I had a pag the page had my email name city and "age" which was wrong because I'm 11 not 14. It's an overall scam
  • Whole reason I joined mylife was because it said someone was searching me. However I also found another account bearing my name, address, and e-mail while stating that I formerly lived on a street I did not even know existed. I'm also scared for those that I care about because for at least some of them this website allow anyone to see their exact location, phone number, and e-mail. I don't know if they put it there or the website did and if they even know their information is exposed.
  • All I did was type in an address that wasn't even mine and my name came up from mylife.com. I checked it out and it has ALL my info on there!! I don't want all that info on the internet! Some of it isn't even true. I think that is so wrong for them to post all that personal info without my knowledge or consent for the whole world to see!! Total BS. That company needs to be shut down!!!
