Vitalchek - Never completed order for a copy of my marriage license and was charged $10 anyway just for being on their site
I was directed (supposedly) by my state to obtain a copy of my marriage license through this company. I was reluctant to order due to the high cost of shipping and other fees.
I decided to go ahead anyway. I entered my name, date of marriage, maiden name and then my Credit Card number. Continuing, I was asked for my birth date and FULL S.S. number.
At that point, I decided that that was a *** thing to do. They already had all my other information and there was no need to give them my SS # and birth date. I backed my information out of the system and closed the website. A few minutes later, I received an e-mail thanking me for my order and a reference # and when I had the rest of the info, I could go back and enter the remainder of the info and they would then process my order.
Today, after seeing a $10 charge on my CC card, I called the company and told them I had not placed an order because they were requesting too much unnecessary information and I had removed my information from their system and never completed a request. I was told that the $10 was a non-refundable charge for using their system. Once I had put in my C.C. number, they had me.
I would highly recommend that no one use this service!
I called my county today and they have an entire department designated to marriage licenses. I'm not sure if the state of TN actually endorsed this company.
