The following is some of the scary fear-mongering lies that this company (KidsLiveSafe) posts on their web site. One catch, like most sites who are exploiting fear, children and ex-sex offenders for profit, in order to sign up, you must enter your personal credit card information, which is expected, but you only get a 7-day trial for $1.00, but after that you will be billed $29.97 per month.
Also, in some states this is illegal. They are using public records from the state registries to make a profit, and is similar to the background check or credit check services, who also automatically bill you some fee that is usually buried deep in their terms of service.
They also post the lie (shown below) on their web site. This has been proven to be false. The company Offender Watch had this same thing posted until many people started complaining about their lie. It was later found out that they were using a very old "study" that was proven to be false. To see the true, or more accurate recidivism of sex offenders (for new sex crimes), see here, and to read more information on the Offender Watch lies, see here.

|The true recidivism rate is around 3.5% to 10%|
They also have the following on their web site. They mislead you by letting you assume that most people who approach children online are known sex offenders or adults. That is false as well. Most children are harassed and approached sexually by other children, and the facts on this can be found here, here and here.

And this nugget! Serial child molesters are rare and not the norm! But they make it appear as if all people who have sexually abuse children are serial child molesters who have abused about 380 kids. For the true serial child molester this may be true, but, like we said, they are very rare and we all know this is a business and fear sells!
|True serial child molesters are very rare|
So ask yourself, are they in the business to help people prevent sexual abuse, or are they in it just for the money? Also, why would you sign up for this site when this information is free in your state?
We understand trying to educate adults and children on the dangers of this world and cyber-world, but using fear to do it and making a profit off the backs of ex-sex offenders and children is disgusting!
