  1. I would like to comment on an advertisement on this page. (Public Police Records
    Search Any Name for Free! Step 1) Enter Name. 2) View Police Records) As I copied and pasted from the add it says "Free!" IT IS NOT. I ran a check on myself and all the terms included a money amount and would not continue unless I filled in a valid credit card number. This appears to be a dishonest site and how can anyone give a credit card number here?
