The same thing happened to me. I thought I was going to be charged $1 for the report that I requested checking on someone that hit me whether they had insurance or not.
I was charged by VinRecordscheckcom 855-549-1882CA. I was only supposed to be charged $1 but was charged the $1 and an additional $18.95. I will start the process of trying to get my money back and stop additional charges from showing up on my statement. I never had any information regarding my request that I would be charged an additional $18.95.
If I had known that, I would never have requested the report because this report was useless to me. I will call the 1-855 number tomorrow to see if I can resolve this issue over the phone.
The problem is that I am now afraid to give them my number so I may call my credit card issuer tomorrow to have them stop any additional charges. I feel that I have been taken and I won't stand for it.
