Social Security Number Trace & Validation
Background checks that search of credit bureau files to provide history of the applicant's names and addresses as they originate from credit headers. This also validates the number's authenticity, as well as year and place of issuance. It is used as a criterion in checking criminal history. Search may provide last known addresses and aliases, possible date of birth, year and state of Social Security number issuance, covering a seven year period. Young applicants and individuals new to country, who might not have developed a credit history yet, might not have a SSN history. Typographical and /or transposition of numbers at the time a Social Security Number is used by a creditor to initiate a credit inquiry can create errors in the data. Interpretation of data is critical; although the search can uncover evidence of identity theft, fraud must not be assumed without further investigation such as validation directly through the Social Security Administration.
County Criminal Records Search
Background checks that search for criminal convictions at the appropriate county courts, covering a seven year period for California and longer for all other states. Reveals felony and related misdemeanor convictions. Records can include: case numbers, offense and disposition dates, charge, type of charge, disposition, and sentence. Courts are searched directly at the source via in person, court Internet websites or direct connection into the courts index. Common names can cause delay in verifying criminal activity, files have to be pulled so identifiers, such as date of birth, middle name and driver's license number, can be checked. Typographical, data entry and/or court filing errors can cause accuracy issues. Also, running a partial or "nickname" (i.e. running Bob instead of Robert) can create accuracy issues. It is recommended that all names, including alias and maiden names be run at all jurisdictions for a seven year period. This will maximize the search results and accuracy.
Multi-State / National Criminal Database Search
Background checks that search Multi-State / National Criminal Database that is a data file of over 500 million Offender records, including felony conviction information, state department of corrections records, and misdemeanor information. Most states records are updated on a monthly basis. This search is done through multi-state databases maintained by many different sources. Information will vary. It is important to note that multi-state criminal searches do not include all criminal records nationally and the information is not always updated regularly. It is recommended that if a multi-state criminal search is run, it should be done in conjunction with county criminal searches. Typographical, data entry and/or court filing errors can cause accuracy issues. Also, running a partial or "nickname" (i.e. running Bob instead of Robert) can create accuracy issues. If "hits" are found on the Multi-State National Criminal Database, the law requires information to be verified directly through the court of records. Additional cost can apply.
Background checks that verify a person's past and/or present work experience by contacting employers/supervisors directly or through automated verification systems. Reports information which can include: dates of employment, position, salary, reason for leaving, eligibility for rehire, disciplinary action taken, dependability, and general work duties. Verifying employment can let employers know if applicant is being honest about length of employment. This verification can be delayed if employers do not promptly return calls or if verifications are only done by mail. In some cases only limited information can be verified based on employer's policies.
