CheaterVille FAQ

Can a post or comment be deleted or edited?

Once your post is made visible to the public, it cannot be deleted or edited. However, a rebuttal or addition to the original posting can be made at any time. Furthermore, you have the option to login to your account and make the post "not visible" to the public.  Please note, if you set your post to "not visible" it can take 48 hours, or longer, before the change is made.

In an effort to help facilitate people who may be falsely posted as a cheater on our website, we have teamed up with a 3rd party arbitration company called TRUTH IN POSTING. CheaterVille is not affiliated with TIP, however if you feel that you are being falsely accused of being a cheater, we highly encourage you to not only directly reply to the post to proclaim your innocence but also contact Truth In Posting at to file a formal challenge. Truth in Posting can help facilitate the removal of the false allegations posted on our site if THEY DETERMINE, through an independent arbitration review, that the allegations are indeed false.

**Any inquires sent via our website or email portal with respect to legal questions or concerns will be referred to the aforementioned explanation, including the Communications Decency Act of 1996.

Does CheaterVille make money off of removing its posts? That is, can I pay you to take down a post about me?

No. You may not pay us to take down a post about you. We would not take down a post for any amount of money. You can offer us $1,000, $2,000, $10,000 or $100,000. We do not remove posts simply upon demand, request, nor as a result of threats, cajoling, or assertions of liability. We only remove posts if ordered to do so by a court order or an arbitrator.

Aren't these “arbitration services” just an end run around to taking money directly?

No. We currently only work with one arbitration service which is Truth In Posting. All of these services are completely independent from CheaterVille. We do not own nor are we affiliated with Truth In Posting. The reason that we adhere to their decisions is that we understand that unscrupulous individuals may post false profiles about other people. We also recognize that there are two sides to every story, but we do not wish to be in a position of deciding which side is valid, nor do we feel qualified to do so. Leaving aggrieved parties with no recourse except going to court means that they will have to spend thousands of dollars to retain an attorney and wait for months, if not years, for a final disposition of their case. On the other hand, the arbitration services charge a fee well below a filing fee for a court case. Additionally, they allow the matter to be resolved in an expedited manner. Sometimes, people file an arbitration and the posting party responds with credible information, resulting in an arbitration decision that posts should remain up. Other times, decisions call for the post to be removed. We have no influence upon the process nor decision and do not make any money off of it. The arbitration services are provided as an alternative so that someone who seeks and/or deserves justice will be able to get it cheaply and quickly. We will adhere to an order from the court or Truth In Posting. We recommend Truth in Posting because we are familiar with their processes. If you prefer to use another independent arbitration service, we will adhere to any established, independent, tribunal or arbitration panel of any type. You may contact us upon receipt of an arbitration decision in your favor, and we will provide you with the necessary forms and releases to remove or modify the post consistent with the arbitration decision.

A post is made "not visible" when the user who created the original post goes into their account settings and makes their post "not visible." Once this occurs, the post cannot be made visible again.

A post was submitted about me and has since been made "not visible" but the record still exists in your system, what can be done to remove it?

Once a record is created it CANNOT BE DELETED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.  CheaterVille needs to keep every record submitted for legal purposes.  

Why can I only search up to a certain number of cheater records per hour?
