SEARCH FOR SOMEONE'S PAST

BACKGROUND CHECK INVESTIGATOR PACKAGES

It’s an unavoidable truth: on first meeting an individual, you have no source of information about them other than what they choose to tell you. This holds true for potential business partners, tenants, life partners, company employees, and those employed in particularly sensitive positions such as housekeepers and care providers for the young and elderly.
Our detailed background checks provide you with all the information you require to take an informed decision on your situation. We operate throughout the United Kingdom and abroad, so it does not matter where the subject is currently living, or has resided in the past.

Frequently Asked Questions

Commonly Asked Questions

  • The problem with many apparently “free” background checks is that they rely on simply gathering information from the public records – they are essentially just searching the internet for that person and any information which appears.  You will not generate any meaningful information from these companies which you cannot get yourself.

  • Most employers will run some form of background check on their new staff – this could be pre interview or afterwards before they offer a job.  Depending on the type of employment, they may be more rigorous than others, so it important that you declare any trace of criminal convictions, court cases or bankruptcies on your application!

    • You have an extensive criminal history. ...
    • You lied on your resume. ...
    • Your credit history is poor. ...
    • Your driving record revealed issues. ...
    • A previous employer gave you a bad review

    There are various things that can disqualify you from a background check. Extensive criminal history, false claims on your resume, poor credit history, poor previous employer review or even driving-related issues.

  • Generally speaking, a background check may show identity verification, employment verification, credit history, driver's history, criminal records, education confirmation, and more

  • The background check is just credit and criminal history. The only big things from a criminal perspective that will disqualify you are felonies or crimes involving ethics/dishonesty, theft, embezzlement, etc.
