~ people finder databases update ~

The Lexis Nexis owned Accurint®, a people locate-and-research database, will have a new pricing structure for the collections industry starting November 1, 2005. I guess the rock bottom fees everyone is charging for a people finder search have driven them to institute a monthly fee of $ 75, reflecting the same type of attitude toward the small or solo practitioner we’ve seen from Choicepoint. The monthly minimum covers unlimited searching on 15 of their locate and background searches. Reports and any other searches willincure a separate fee. Also, Accurint and the Lexis Nexis public records searches will be integrated to “fill in the gaps” in data, and both products will run on the Accurint platform, all according to the last man standing at customer service. There’s no suggestion from IRB that their fee schedule will change.
