What chapped my ass was the fee to have my name removed.
Pay the site $70 and my name and record would be removed. Ridiculous. This is preying on the stupid and desperate. How many other sites do the same thing and charge the same price? This is the weirdest form of extortion I've ever seen.
Take me and my situation out of the equation. Plug in a desperate person trying to find a job. They stumble across one of these sites, are unaware that paying the fine won't remove them from other background checks and they get swindled. Repeat that a few times. Someone could be out hundreds of dollars trying to remove a tiny mistake from 10 years ago.
Businesses shouldn't profit from public record. They should also not be allowed to swindle people.
