    VeriBiz: are they a bona fide company????

    Hi Guys,

    1. I don't normally obtain ITC reports on behalf of my prescription claim clients purely becuase the client themselves can request a ITC and Experian report free online, you entitled to one free report per year;
    2. I've had 4 incidents this week where my clients attempted to obtain their free report but were given the error message, " details could be verified, please come and pick up report personally with your id"
    3. In order to assist one of my clients , I approached a friend(won't mention hime becuase we respect each other) who is in the recruitment and selection industry and pays monthly subsription to ITC. He told me that should I want him to request a report for me, he would charge me R150 per report. I complied this time but have since being looking for a company that will charge a reasonable rate per report;
    4. I came across VeriBiz, they seem legit and charge R34 for 1 itc report. I just have a very uneasy feeling about them!!! Has anyone done busines with them?
    5. Can you please recommend a company to me which will provide a ITC report at a reasonable price and not charge a monthly subscription?

    Your feedback will be highly appreciated!!!!!!!

    Looks legit to me!

    And I think I'll give them a whirl for the next credit check I've got to do. Transunion and Experian's bundled pricing system works out far more expensive for me on my volumes.

    Of course company look-ups are free on the CIPC website, and VAT look-ups are free on eFiling, but the credit check rates look reasonable.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    But this reminded me that I can get a free credit report as it is my birthday month.
    The report looks good just scary the amount of info they have, they have all my outstanding balances
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    Yes, Veribiz is a legit company I use them a lot.

    They are not a registered Credit Bureau but an onseller, they resell the reports for Transunion (ITC), XDS etc.

    Have a look at CPB - Consumer Profile Bureau they charge R 27.00 for a profile

    I recall being able to do this on the CIPRO website, but since it became CIPC, I haven't managed to figure out how to search for a 3rd party company. Maybe I need to spend more time searching.

    Let me save you the trouble.

    I got there by clicking on the Additional services link on the left hand upper menu block - which on closer examination takes you to a page on the old CIPRO site. This gives a link to this page: http://www.cipro.gov.za/transact/pro...ces/search.asp

    It still works - at least for now. I guess the company search functionality page on the cipc website is still to be developed.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
