I came across a critical review of VehicleHistory.com on a Scam Reporting website – DirtyScam.com, titled ‘Vehicle History is an unauthorized site. Stay Away!’.
DirtyScam allows anonymous submission of complaints from angry consumers and victims of scams. Since the website is hosted offshore (probably in Russia or India), we take this (negative) review against VehicleHistory.com with a pinch of salt.
Here is what the review says –
I was looking for some information on the used cars and used this website vehilehistorylookup.com to find some information. This was a bad choice. I still regret my experience. But, how would I have known before using them.So, the first thing about the website is that it takes a long time to load information as if it has got a lot of data to retrieve. After waiting for 30 minutes and refreshing the search 3-4 times, I received some data which was nothing but bunch of car histories.Not even 10 listed on the page. There was no next button. So, that was all. So, I wasted my time. I went to a different website and found comparatively better results in no time. While I was talking to my friend about the website, he informed that he was scammed with $130 through the same site. He said that he wanted to report, and the report costed $1. But while he was making the entries and proceeded further, the total charge changed to $130 and by the time he realized, he had already made the payment.He said that he also tried to further talk to a representative, but that did not help. His results were also not updated right away. When he asked about that, the representative said that it takes a week for that to happen. But, it never happened. He warned me to stay away from this website.So, in the evening, I did few research on the website and found dozens of similar complaints on the internet about the company. This was not enough. I also found out similar looking websites that had provided the same service. These all websites are owned by the same person. I also tried to check for the authorization and discovered that the company was not authorized to provide this information.I found out that there are very few sites that are authorized by the department of motor vehicle to make these searches and this is not the one among them. It only tries to rip you off by claiming a smaller amount and charging a bigger one. This site misleads people for fake information and unregulated data.People have been charged with huge amounts and the company do nothing to return it back to the customer. This company is a scam and mostly trying to get customers into paying for nothing. The services are fake and not genuine. You would find many scams reported on their name and they have done a great job through unethical marketing to hide these comments under the pile of staged comments.But, if you would try to look for reports like this, you will have to find the older ones which are true and reflect the real face of these cheaters. I wish you never would have to go through the same scam that my friend and many other people have already went through. I want to warn every other person who is trying to surf this website.
