I was charged $59.16 for a membership plan that I did not purchase. I called them and was told they could not talk to me because I opened a disputed charge with my credit card provider. They even would not respond to an online question. Do not trust InstantCheckmate.com. They also capture personally identifiable information from all customers who visit the website.

This has been debiting my account and I never requested it; never even knew of them. They used my first name, when I only use my second name. They obtained my foreign bank account info - I am an expat. And by coincidence, they do not send emails with invoices...! They have obviously obtained access to sensitive information fraudulently.

ICM. INSTANT CHECKMATE show up on a credit card that was being question by my bank about fraud charges. After reviewing the charges we noticed ICM on the monthly billing. I will challenge the charge being I have no idea who or what this guys are. Interesting the ICM show up at the same time the fraud is being committed.

Deana Anderson on August 10, 2017

This happened to me in February. I also had fraudulent charges on my debit

Consumer on October 20, 2017

Received fraud alerts from my credit card company regarding two charges from ICM*INSTANTCHECKMATE.COM. Both are fraudulent charges.

Diane Gonzales/Joseph B Flores on January 25, 2018

I see these charges of $4.99 periodically in my debit card transactions. I don't know where they come from.

Valerie Gardner on June 03, 2018

Bruce Messig on August 11, 2018

This has been debiting my account and I never requested it; never even knew of them. I see these charges of $34.73 periodically in my debit card transactions. I was charged for a membership plan that I did not purchase and don't know where they come from.

Genesis on December 01, 2018

I was just charged $34.78 by ICM*INSTANTCHECKMATE.CO for a marketing subscription that I didn't authorize. Do you know how to report it?

Pavel on December 08, 2018

I just got several fraudelent transactions with this name ICM INSTANTCHECKMATEC.

James on December 24, 2018

WOW, what a prolifically criminal company !!! ICM*INSTANTCHECKMATE.COM Two times - 2 consecutive months - November and December, 2018, charged me $34.78 - unauthorized (never before heard of them). Rported to my bank, needless to say. An uncommonly dangerous company. Amazing courage. Doesn't happen that often, does it?

James on December 24, 2018

Caution: I should temper the review I left minutes ago. Reading about ICM elsewhere, the fraud might not be the company, but instead my credit card number stolen. On the other hand, both charges were for the exact same amount ,and on the very same date in each of the two consecutive months. Your guess is as good as mine.

Pat Ward on January 10, 2019

Two fraudulent charges Jan. 9, 2019 on our credit card account. One for 2.99, and one for 26.82

Not my Name on February 27, 2019

I never heard of them, but I looked at my last credit card statement and saw 3 charges from ICM totaling over $100. Then I saw that they refunded the charges 4 days later. What is going on? Why are they using my credit card? Where did they get my card number? Do they also have my name? I immediately cancelled the card.

M H Grace on May 20, 2019

I have tried unsuccessfully to contact instant checkmate by phone at (800) 222-8985 about my past monthly charges and to obtain the report I ordered. All my charges took place over the last year. They do not recognize that I am a paying member nor have I received any report that they say was generated and sent to my email address..

Jay on July 17, 2019

Just happened to me today, two charges $4.27 & $49.63. I don't even know what the heck is this ICM InstantCheckmate.com. Is there anyway that we can press any charges with them? I need my money back!

Omar Huntley on July 23, 2019

Received this text today regarding fraud on my credit card: Chase Fraud: Did you use card ending XXXX for $83.47 at ICM*InstantCheckmate.com on 07/22? Reply YES or NO. Msgs&rates may apply. I did not authorize this so therefore I am disputing.

Frankie Church on July 26, 2019

ICM are Completely fraudlent operators. I'm still wondering how these thieves got my credit card info. They have been charging my Visa card 2 - 6 times per month for 2.99 - 68.xx each time. Any insight as to how this particular thieving outfit gains info would be appreciated...and how does VISA NOT flag any charge from these KNOWN thieves immediately?

Matthew on January 30, 2020

Imagine having a company, and the first page of search results for your name are all about how your fraudulent charges. Apparently your fraud protection is non-existent. Why don't credit card companies revoke you as an authorized seller ICM*InstantCheckmate.com? None of your charges are legitimate, and in the end, they have to pay for it!

Robert on February 22, 2020

Same as others here..........This is a scam. I saw a charge on my credit card of $34.78 from Instant Checkmate when I received my monthly bill. I didn't know what this charge was and I did not authorize this charge. Capitol 1 has to now cancel this card.

Tim on August 09, 2020

Randomly started getting charged $34.78 a month last month (July 2020/August 2020).

This place is a scam on May 25, 2021

This was the biggest waste of my time and money I can remember. I'm starting my social security and needed some information on previous marriages. I've been married 5 times (unfortunately) and needed marriage dates for each. There software found no marriages listed for me. The addresses for me were in states in which I've never lived and it listed relatives I don't have. I called and emailed them with no reply. This service is a scam.

Guy on June 05, 2021

Charged me $35.12. Why can't the credit card company stop this ICMINSTANTCHECKMATEC company by pressing charges? Someone said this company might be legit but why would the credit card company attempt to pay them in the first place. The person from credit card company said enter a dispute claim for me but if they know this ICM INSTANTCHECKMATEC is bad, why can't the credit card company just delist them?

Kristen on June 07, 2021

I had 5 charges made on my debit card on the same day from ICMA-RC instantche. This was shortly after I tried to use my debit card to withdraw cash from a free standing ATM machine located at Mels Funway Park in Litchfield, NH. The ATM kept asking for my PIN number but would cancel the withdrawal not giving me any money (transaction canceled) possibly a card reader on machine. You have to cancel your debit card

David on June 29, 2021

I too found unexpected charges for this company. Upon investigation, I learned that a member of my household had inadvertently subscribed to their services. I called the 866 number listed at the top of this web page, explained the situation, and was immediately refunded subscription fees for both affected months. The customer rep was courteous and helpful.

Vernell Stepter, III on July 24, 2021

I received my Sears Mastercard statement on Friday July 23, 2021. After inspecting the transactions, I saw an fraudulent transaction from InstantCheckmate for $35.12, which was posted on June 21, 2021. I called the number on the credit statement and a robot person said the business was closed for the weekend. I immediately called the Mastercard CC Company to advise of the fraudulent charge. The Masredcard rep. entered the information into the system as a fraudulent charge and I will not have to pay it. In the interim, my current credit card number is now deleted and I will receive a new card with a new CC number in a few days.

Mary F on August 05, 2021

I am being charged through my bank for a subscription that this company cannot seem to find, how can I keep it from happening

Pedro Pablo on November 06, 2021

I just notices several small charges on my debit card totalling about $53 it is obviously a scam. People who steal you card information and use to charges with thos company. And they are not innocent in this, because they must spot the illegal charges, but do not care. Now I have to go thru the process of filling a claim and so forth for $53. Which, I'm sure, they were hoping I did not catch, claim or report as fraud.

Annoyed @ scammers on January 25, 2022

My credit card auto declined $35.12 at ICMINSTANTCHECKMATE thank goodness, I called them to dispute the charge and they are going to be sending me a new card.

Michael williams on February 02, 2022

October 11 of last year I paid full amount $84 for two months three months after that they have been charging me $5.99 twice a month every month after that I don’t know what’s going on let me know some

Crystal Sawyer on February 05, 2022

This 'company' and what they're doing to us is BULLSH*T. Apparently LOTS of us are repeatedly getting scammed out of money, (whether we willingly signed up or have no clue how it happened)..and it seems most of us never receive a refund of any kind (from bank and or said 'company')... AND, it KEEPS happening!! So ladies and haD4v9gentlemen, what do we do??

Jack Taylor on March 27, 2022 on March 28, 2022

To my surprise I found two pending charges on my Debit Card I don't understand. I have had no dealings with InstantCheckmate yet I was charged $3.99 and $88.65 on the same date, March 27, 2022. A dispute will be registered with my bank.
