We've provided this page in order to answer some of the most frequently asked questions.

TESTING If you can't find an answer to a question here, please email us.

Q: How can I place my order?
A: We strongly recommend placing your order online and making payment with your credit card on our secure server. Your order will enjoy immediate attention when placed online. Rest assured that your credit card information is not stored on our secure server. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology so you never have to worry about your credit card number.

If you prefer, you may place your order by email, fax, or regular mail; however, services not ordered online will take longer to deliver. Please refer to the bottom of this page for our contact information.

Q: What is the fastest way to order?
A: Just to reiterate, without a doubt, the fastest way to place your order is online and pay with your credit card on our secure server. Your order will enjoy immediate attention when placed online.

Q: What credit cards do you accept?
A: When ordering online on our secure server we can accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Please do not send your credit card information via email, fax or regular mail.

We can also accept the following as payment;
- A cashiers check drawn on a U.S. bank
- PayPal - email address is Info@pdjservices.com
- Money Order (US currency only)

Money orders can be obtained from financial institutions and most post offices. If ordering outside the USA, always ask for an "international money order". Our Canadian clients may also use Canadian (non-international) money orders in US currency.

Such payments should be made payable to PDJ Services and sent to:
PDJ Investigative Services
c/o pdjservices.com
871 Thornton Parkway, Suite 140 Thornton, CO 80229

Should the above forms be unavailable or inconvenient, we also accept cash (US currency only for the exact amount of the search, please do not send coins). We strongly recommend insuring mailings containing cash. Please inquire at your post office about the best options available to you. Please note that we do not recommend sending cash through the mail.

Q: How do I know my credit card payment has been processed?
A: When you submit your credit card information and your payment is approved, you will be given a receipt and issued a invoice number. This number will appear on your confirmation screen. We suggest you write it down (or print the page using your browser's Print function) for your reference.
Please include the transaction number in the subject line of any correspondence.

The transaction will also appear on your credit card statement, as PDJ Services. We do not issue separate acknowledgments or receipts, however, you will receive an email letting you know your order has been received and accepted.

Q: Can I change or cancel my order once submitted?
A: Orders placed online are processed immediately. It is therefore almost impossible to cancel or change an online order once submitted and the credit card has been approved. You may need to place a new order with the right information. If your original order was placed for the wrong search and no information is found, you mostly likely won't be charged, however if you know the information or search was wrong, please contact us immediately by email at our customer care email address.

If you placed your order by email, fax, or regular mail, you may or may not be able to cancel it, depending on whether the order has already been processed. Please contact us immediately by email at customer care.


Q: How will I receive the results of my search?
A: You will receive the results of your search by email unless you specified otherwise at the time you place the order. This has proven as the fastest and most convenient means of delivery for most clients. Please make sure we have your complete and correct email address. Without a working email address, we may be unable to deliver the results of your search promptly. Providing a working email address is the responsibility of the client.

If you prefer to receive the results of your search by fax or regular mail, please provide your fax number and/or send us a separate email with your invoice number and complete mailing address.

Q: How soon will I receive the results?
A: Please review the "Estimated Turn Around Time" for each search. Most are completed and results delivered within 1 - 3 business days of receipt of order and payment unless otherwise noted. Results will be sent to you as soon as they become available. Please note that our "turn around" times are estimated based on an average of searches performed.

The processing of all orders is as expedient as possible. Unfortunately, inquiring about the status of your order will not result in faster processing. We want to serve you as quickly as possible. The moment we have the information, we will email it to you.


Q: Are the results of my search guaranteed?
A: Yes. Most searches can be completed to our customers' satisfaction. In the unlikely event that we cannot provide the information you requested, your payment will be refunded in accordance with our refund policy for each search. If you made your payment by credit card, your card will be credited appropriately once you request a refund. Other forms of payment will be refunded by check and delivered by regular mail. We will need your full name and mailing address for check delivery.

The results of your search are guaranteed to be correct at the time your search is completed. If no results are found, you will be sent an email with your options, one of which is requesting a refund.

If the information you provide for search is incorrect (e.g., misspelled or not existing name, address or phone number, or incorrect VIN format), or some of the required information is not provided (e.g., street type, such as "Blvd.", or applicable Apartment/Suite/Unit number), or any of the information provided is not spelled out fully (e.g., "Arlington", rather than "Arl."), or there is a mismatch between the type of information required and that provided by the client (e.g., a pager or cellular phone number is supplied where an unlisted phone number is required) and the search therefore cannot be completed, the client will be charged a "no-hit" fee in some cases. Please refer to each search for specific "no-hit' fee details. VIN searches are nonrefundable.

Q: What happens if a positive result to my search does not exist?
: If, for example, you order a search for a phone number at a particular address, and we find out that no phone line is connected to that address, upon request, we will refund your fee.

We suggest that you check for the existence of the expected result prior to placing your order whenever possible. For example, you may be able to verify through Directory Assistance (411 or 00) that there is an unlisted number at someone's address, although you will not be able to obtain the actual number. That way, you'll be sure that you order the correct search from us.

Q: Why would No-Info be available for a VIN or Tag search?
If any organization does not have the vehicle Tag or VIN on record for the state you submitted, your search results will be negative (No-Info).

If the vehicle is not registered or has not been registered for at least the last 2 years in the state you specified in your search, the search could also come back as negative (No-Info).

The most common reason for No-Info available is an error in entering the "you supply" information. Tag's & VIN's are typically numbers and letters, don't mix up the number "1" for the letter "I", or the letter "g" for the number "9". Numbers often get entered as letters or visa versa, be super careful. Once your data is entered and our investigator submits it to the agencies (which is immediate), we can not recheck your search without incurring an additional fee.

If your search results are negative (No-Info) your fee is still non-refundable since the agencies which provide this information require prepayment of fee's no matter what the results are.

Q: Can I dispute the results provided to me?
A: If you can show the results provided to you to be incorrect, (ie. you attempted to send a letter to the address we provided and it was returned), or if you are unhappy with another aspect of the service you ordered, you should email us at customer care. By not writing to us within 10 (ten) days of the date on which you received your order results, you are irrevocably waiving your right to dispute the service. No dispute or appeal will be considered and no refund issued after the 10 day period.


Q: Are the searches confidential?
A: YES, Absolutely, Positively. All searches are completely confidential. We will never make our clients' information available to a third party.

Q: Will the person I requested information about know that I am trying to find his/her information?
A: No, never. We never contact the owners of phone numbers searched. The owner has no way of knowing about the search or who ordered it. The same holds true for any type of search we provide -- no one will know about your search unless you tell them yourself.


Q:Is it secure to make online credit card payments on your site?
A: Yes. For credit card payments and verification, we us SSL technology and a payment gateway to protect you credit card information. Your credit card information will be transmitted via a secure server. We never store credit card information on our website or our servers.

Q: How will I know that my order and payment have been received?
A: Each search screen (form) is followed by an order form with your name, address, email address, and credit card information. Once submitted and approved, you will see a screen confirming that "Your order was successfully submitted" and you will be able to print the transaction receipt.

Your receipt will also include a Invoice Number. Please include the Invoice Number with any correspondence.

In the extremely unlikely event that you receive an error message indicating that your information could not be successfully transmitted over the Internet, please send us an email. This may occasionally, although rarely, result, for example, from the incompatibility of some browser versions. Although we have no control over the transmissions over the Internet or the compatibility or settings of your browser, we will do our best to assist you in successfully submitting your order.


Q: What is the difference between "unlisted" and "unpublished" number?
A: None. The expressions, "unlisted number", "unpublished number" and "non-published number" (also known as "non-pub") all mean the same. These numbers are not listed in the local Telephone Directory and not normally available through Directory Assistance (411) or telephone operators (0 or 00).

Q: What is a CNA?
A: CNA stands for Customer Name & Address. If you have a phone number and
you want to find the persons name and/or address that goes with that phone
number if it's listed, unlisted, non-published, unpublished or whatever, we
can find it... Guaranteed or no fee*.

* Make sure you use the right search for the right phone number.
Residential land line,  Cellular # or Pager #

Q: Can you find ANY phone number?
A: Please refer to our Directory for search categories. Our success (hit) rate is very high, but we may not be able to find information on maximum security numbers and certain special numbers, such as blocked government numbers for example. In such cases, we will refund your payment under our no information - no charge policy.

Q: What happens if I order an unlisted number search, and the number turns out to be a pager or cell phone number?
A: To avoid delays, we suggest that you check for the existence of the expected result prior to placing your order whenever possible. For example, you may want to dial the phone number and see if you get a pager or cell message, or dial 411 or 00 and ask the operator.

If you request a name and address for an unlisted number and it's a cellular or pager number, we will inform you of the correct search and either void the transaction or ask if you want to pay for the additional fee.

Q: Do you offer quantity discounts for high volume orders?
A: Yes, depending on your situation. Please email sales department.
