Do I Really Want This?

This afternoon I came across a very interesting site. It is Instant Checkmate’s Standard Report. I suppose I knew about sites like this, but hadn’t actually seen one, so I opened it. I was astonished.

For a one month charge of $22.66 I could learn my birth date, all the phone numbers I ever had, addresses where I have lived, who I was related to, arrest records, court records, government license information, email addresses, contacts for long lost friends or relatives, local police records, State police records, social media summary, online profiles, possible relatives, State records, relative sectors, and probably more that I haven’t listed. I was shocked.  I suppose I shouldn’t be. In today’s world of instant information, it should be obvious that there is no place to hide.

I was tempted to purchase the one month set of records, but I have lived a relatively chaste existence, one marriage ending in my husband’s death 44 years ago, three now adult children, and a few different homes and jobs. I am not sure I want to spend the money to get information I already have. I have no police record, and one vehicle ticket many years ago.  I know where I have lived, all my email addresses, and more, but I am still curious. I think I might like to know what happened to some of the people in my past.

I imagine that I could get information on some of those people listed in my report, but I really don’t want to know all of the details that I might find. In any case, it was an interesting site and something I wanted to pass on to you.  You can see for yourself with just your name, your State and $22.66.

Instant Checkmate’s Standard Report contains, where available, a person’s date of birth, phone numbers, address history, related persons, arrest records, court records, government license information, social media profiles including email addresses, and nearby sex offenders. A subscription with Instant Checkmate allows you to obtain unlimited Standard Reports about persons during your subscription period. After subscribing, you will also have the opportunity to upgrade your Standard Report to a Premium Report, which will supply additional and supplemental data about a person, for $19.99.

Fascinating.
