A background search gives users access to information such as criminal history information, address information, marriage/divorce records and more. The minimum information necessary to conduct a background search is often fairly little.
There are many reasons for using a background search. Hiring a new babysitter, researching tenants or looking into someone new in your life are just a few of the more common reasons.
The internet can allow background searches to be performed more efficiently and at a lower cost than ever before. However before you purchase a report do make sure you know what you are getting. Use the information below to review pricing and prior customer ratings of the service.
The minimum information to conduct a background search is often the name (first and last) and location (the more specific the better but if you don't know specifics a city & state will do). If the searched individual has a common name you may need to review identifying information (such as an address, phone number, date of birth or aliases) which will help to make sure the background check is performed on the individual intended and not someone else who happens to have the same name.
