I had not used the service since I changed my email address whch My new email address is: I still have a search credit with “Clickbank” from 2006. I have been trying to reach you people to activate my account for at least two to three years to no avail. You stated you would “look into it” but never contacted me. I used your service successfully in the past but cannot seem to reach you to correct my situation. I waould sincerely appreciate your return regarding this problem. Thank you. S.L.Davidson,DDS

    Hi Dr. Davidson,
    This is the IdentityTheftSecrets web site. We simply reviewed CIS Nationwide, but we aren’t them. If you want to contact them, you can do so directly via their web site.
    If they don’t contact you back, please let us know and we’ll see what help we can offer.
    Kind Regards,

    I am an Australian Resident. registered earlier this to do some searches on a person in Australia. I was not able to because I could only get U.S. zip codes. I contacted you to get a refund as I am unable to do the searches I need, and there was no indication on your site that this is an American only sight. Can you please tell me what to do about a refund, it is very difficult to contact you and feel that i’ve been scammed by you!
