There are many personal and business reasons why background investigation checks are conducted. You may be new to the dating scene and meeting people from time to time, or perhaps you’ve been in a relationship and never thought to take a closer look at someone because at the time you felt a background check wasn’t necessary. Understandably people dating who have children may have concerns about the safety of their child. Concerned parents looking out for the welfare of their older children may want a background check conducted on the person who their child is dating. Businesses may want to learn about their competitors, or purse legal action.
Think you need a background check only in the state the subject is known to be residing in?
Understand what searches are provided and some of the pitfalls when conducting background checks, such as not considering records that exist outside the state. It’s not uncommon for someone with a criminal or civil litigation history to intentionally not disclose a state they lived in the past and had been arrested in, or had a civil case ruled against them. In additional to criminal and civil records on the local level there are also federal criminal records and federal civil litigation records that can be searched.
But there’s a catch. No matter the reason you feel a background check is needed caution should be taken when making the decision to use online database services offering the general public instant and accurate background checks at enticing prices. Consequently, you may not be getting what you think when using some of the “information aggregators” that buy and resell data. Read the “fine print’ on their website. For example, you may find that some of these database companies only provide information from certain states that resulted in criminal convictions where the subject had been incarcerated. Whether you need a background check conducted on a person or you need a business background investigation conducted, as a general rule, information from online database aggregators should not be relied on. An independent verification process is recommended.
