WHY DO AN ONLINE BACKGROUND CHECK?

There are many valid reasons why someone may want to do an online background search. You absolutely need to know all you can about who you hire or conduct business with, who you associate with and who you live with. Background information, personal histories if you will, can be obtained from the comfort of your home at very reasonable prices. There should be no initial set up fees to get started or any ongoing monthly charges for an online background query.

BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION INTRODUCTION

Background Investigations or Searches, also known as background checks can be performed online and valuable information is provided to you almost immediately at a very minimal cost. You do not need a private investigator to do this. You may want to learn facts or verify information about a potential employee/applicant that you are wanting to hire. You may be wanting to gather facts or verify information about a prospective tenant that you are thinking about renting to. Perhaps, you need to know if a babysitter or housekeeper can be trusted. Have they provided you with factual and truthful information? After all, what could be more valuable than your children and your home? Then again, you may have questions about a new friend or lover. The list goes on and on. Information provided will be very informative and discreet looking into the past of all of these individuals. Our computer databases query in excess of a billion records, giving you a detailed and accurate report. Learning about an individual's past criminal misconduct, driving history, bankruptcies, judgements and/or liens can be useful. Verifying someone’s most current address, knowing about past addresses, and reviewing an in-depth profile of property ownership and other assets linked to the person may be what you are looking for. Personal identifiers and lists of an individual’s possible relatives that includes, but is not limited to, spouses (present and past) can be provided. Does the person have any dependent children? A background check may, in some cases, include a consumer credit analysis as well. An online background check can be basic and brief, lengthy and very comprehensive, or anywhere in the middle. 

THE IMPORTANCE OF A BACKGROUND CHECK

Relationships – Individuals are now paying closer and closer attention before making serious lifelong commitments. In days past, we would find a potential mate and make a commitment. Simple as that!

Hiring baby sitters and/or care givers – Every day baby sitters go into homes to watch our most valuable assets, our children.

New Hires/Employee’s – Background checks are more and more often initiated by employers on potential applicants, especially on those candidates seeking a position that requires a position of trust such as in a financial institution.

Today, a complete check can be administered online by private companies who are in the business of doing fast, simple and reasonably priced backgrounds. Results of a background check done by a private company can typically include past employment verification, criminal history and credit history.
