“We want to be a responsible company and not aid scam artists,” a spokesman said. has launched a program to make sure that people can't use their site as part of an identity theft scam, the company said yesterday.

“We want to be a responsible company and not aid scam artists,” a spokesman said. “So we had to develop a system that will make sure they can't use our system to commit identity theft.”

Some scam artists look for death records as a way to take over the identity of someone who has died, the spokesman said. This allows them to hide from a criminal past or take advantage of the reputation of the deceased.

“What we found is that there are patterns to the type of lookups people do when they are trying to commit an identity theft scam,” he said. “Now we have installed software that instantly recognizes those patterns and then blocks the person from getting the report.”

The new system will not stop honest customers who use for genealogical purposes, he said.

“The software is tailored so that it will only block scam artists and not regular people,” he said. “It is very intuitive and will not flag normal research actions on the site.”

If someone feels that they have been incorrectly flagged as a scam searcher they can contact the company's customer service people to explain their situation, the spokesman said.

“We won't inconvenience our regular customers in any way,” he said.
