You're trying to look for someone?

What do you mean by Secure?

I ran a search for myself at no charge.  Are they asking you to pay for a background check?

 Yes, my father who none of the family has heard from in ~20 years. This site shows that it has information about him but it charges $49.95 for complete information. But when I get to the page to enter my credit card # ect, I don't see the icon for a secure connection that I usually see when buying online via credit card.

BTW, I don't have my fathers SS number. All my papers from those days got burned in a house fire. I did run a check and got several addresses, but no dates, phone numbers, other contact info.

Might be best to hold off for just a bit.  There are other sites which offer the same services.

I've never used this site beyond the free services, but this looks a bit better to me.

I saw that one and it claims to have more information, for more $, but I don't know if spending more $ with them will get me any more info than I already have. I guess I'll find out when I get another paycheck. Oh well. It's been 20 years, I guess I can wait another 2 weeks lol.
Thanks again!
Mike

In the meantime, try as many free sites as you can:  white pages, on line directories, etc. -- you might just stumble into some information.
