How We Can Help

Reveal Identity

"I was being contacted by a scammer disguised as someone trying to date me. We met online. I used Spokeo to look into their email address, and I eventually found out that they were not who they said they were."


Avoid Scams

"I found out the person that I was talking to wasn't the person I thought they were. They were trying to get money from me. Spokeo verified that their email address was not real."


Verify Details

"I was going to go on a date, and I wanted to verify who it was that I was going out with. I found out that the person I was about to go on a date with has a record of domestic abuse. I was relieved to find that out prior to going on the date!"
