Or, maybe you had an old college flame that meant the world to you, but you've since lost track of them.

Net Detective



$29.95 one-time fee

$29.95 per month for their "Plus" version

Net Detective is an online service used to gather specific information on individuals. Potential users can get background information on future employees or service contractors. Net Detective can also be used to research family history, look up old or lost friends, and get detailed financial information about yourself.

While at first glance this website is visually busy, it's actually pretty easy to navigate and review product information. In fact, you can become a "Net Detective" in just two easy steps. First, enter your e-mail address. Second, enter some personal information and pay. The cost is a one-time fee of $29.95, making this appear to be one of the least expensive online research sites.

However, once you sign up for their service, you'll find that Net Detective really wants you to sign up for their "Plus" version. At $29.95 per month, Net Detective claims that their "Plus" version is the only way you can truly receive background checks, criminal checks, and services that other top-rated companies provide. Unfortunately, they don't tell you this before you sign up for their basic service!

Net Detective offers a 100% guarantee and boasts numerous positive testimonials from happy customers. They also offer online and telephone support should any problems arise. Net Detective has a solid website that prides itself on customer satisfaction. However, we think their advertising is misleading at best and they should be more clear about what you get when you sign up for their basic service.
