Default Checking DNA on sites like Ancestry

Anyone here ever paid to check their DNA and roots on a site like Ancestry or those other ones? How accurate are they?

I just heard on the news that they found a criminal by using one of those DNA companies. Not saying that you, or I, are criminals and have to worry about that particular instance, but the fact that the gov't can get your DNA that easily and use it for anything they want......
