NewsPaper Archives - Complaints / Reviews / Scam Reports This Site gave Me False Hope of Finding a Loved Ones' Obituary

This is a Complaint / Review about NewsPaper Archives.

Here are your choices and keep in mind I purchased the 10-day pass with a one time payment of $24.99.There are only 6 steps!! Makes it sound so easy!!!1 Select Your Membership ,2 Choose Your Login,3 Provide Address,
4 Provide Account Info ,5 Review Your Info and the big one!! 6. Begin Exploring, full archive access and reading Discover the past with the largest newspaper archive online made me so good.

This is where I felt excited by getting a chance to read something I have always wanted to read!" had to get an email sent to me to verify everything and it came as a no reply email "Your membership to NewspaperARCHIVE is active and you now have access to more than 60 million historical newspaper pages. You may log in with your username and password found below. Enjoy your discoveries!"

Final Issue besides the fact that I could not at all find what I was looking for gave me a bad feeling and I came on here and sure enough found a complaint. I wonder how many people they have in there data base that are not aware of these memberships that will be billed to that credit card you give..and one more huge thing....."""Does NewspaperArchive does use "IP Addresses."

This is quoted "We do use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information such as geographic distribution of our members. Cookies: Contrary to popular myth, cookies do not extract private or personal information from your computers memory, but rather, record only information you volunteer to us upon registering or visiting the site. Cookies are tiny files placed onto the hard drive of your computer when you register at our Web site that enable our server to recognize or "remember" who you are each time you return. NewspaperArchive may make limited use of cookies to deliver content specific to your interests. For instance they may be used to retain your personal preferences or save your password so it doesnt have to be re-entered each time you login.

Guess What!! An IP address can locate exactly where you are using your computer..such as your home town..scary?? Yes! Having all this access can lead to key loggers and much more! It is not ok!

I ended up calling my bank just as described in the first report and instantly closed my account and will not be accessed by Newspaperarchives ( ironically called Archives since how it stores your credit card and will bill you repeatedly unless you read the very, very tiny print.".My advice ..Beware!! Thank You complaint!!
