For many years I have been trying to find my father. All thru my young life, my mom gave me false information about my real father. I didnt find out till much later my father was indeed alive. Of course she claimed she didnt know where.
I took it upon myself to find him...I had tried everything, all kinds of online searches, libraries, public records, etc...I couldnt find anything.
One day I was watching Maury Povitch or one of those daytime talk shows, that had a segment on people looking for lost loves, lost parents, siblings, etc. At the end of the segment an ad played for 800 USSearch...so I figured what the heck, I'd give it a go. That was a big mistake.
I gave them all the information I had..granted it wasnt much but they claimed that they have been dead on with far less information. So I sent them $100, gave them loads of information and their search began.
About a month or so later, I get some correspondence from them...boy was I excited, I was finally going to be like these people on the tv show and finally meet up with my dad....boy was I wrong.
What I ended up with, was not a simple name and address for my father...it was a document, several pages long, of names and addresses...some of which were not even male, they were female...and i mean literally hundreds of names and addresses. They didnt do anything I couldnt have done myself for free.
They claim if they cant get results for you, the service is free...but what they dont tell you is that they will give you every name and address possible, some that arent even close to what you gave them to begin with...and in doing so, that is their way of giving you results...you end up with nothing.
