Overall Rating: 8.6 / 10 (Excellent)

PeopleLookup's pricing structure allows customers to make unlimited background checks within a specified period of time. This would be advantageous to detective agencies, journalists, and other people who want a criminal and civil court records check, contact information, and residence history. The information revealed in its reports is fairly basic, but would probably be adequate for most purposes. The company's reputation is uncertain and it does not invite direct customer contact, so customers should take care to understand its automatic subscription renewal policies.

PeopleLookup Screening Details

Screening - 8 / 10

PeopleLookup focuses on finding people, compiling their past addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses, listing their family members, and finding any criminal and civil court records. It is not a consumer reporting agency and therefore is not bound by the FCRA, so its reports cannot be used for employment or tenancy purposes.

PeopleLookup Company Reputation

Company Reputation - 8 / 10

PeopleLookup does not have a separate BBB entry, but its parent firm, Intelius, has an A rating from the organization. None of the negative comments or complaints with the BBB about Intelius specifically concern PeopleLookup. PeopleLookup does not publish any information about its corporate ownership, its address, or its phone number. Given the lack of reputational information specific to PeopleLookup and the company's somewhat anonymous website, an assessment of its reputation is difficult to make.
