Several online companies are out there who claim they’re giving you a “nationwide criminal check” for $39.95, but the simple truth is, like unicorns and faeries, the private sector "nationwide criminal check" doesn't exist. These online "nationwide criminal checks" frequently return clean bills of health on known offenders, and the sellers are fully aware of this fact.
These "$39.95" companies rely mostly on private parties who don’t understand the investigation business, and small business owners who don’t understand their responsibilities and don’t tell you their products are accompanied by a “not to be used in whole or in part as a factor in determining eligibility for credit, insurance, employment or another permissible purpose under the FCRA” disclaimer printed on them because they don’t have the most current records, and they don't have lack source authentication.
For a few dollars more, you can come to us and have us do it the right way, going to the original sFor a few dollar of the records. Some investigations require releases from the people being investigated. Other don't. We'll let you know which category your needs fall into, and we'll provide you with up to date pre-employment or tenant background release forms personalized with your company name, so when your pre-employment or tenant screening candidates are ready to sign, you're good to go.

Employment, tenancy, and litigation decisions need to be based on verifiable fact. You’ll be able to come into our office and talk with your investigator. If there are criminal records to be found, you’ll know they came from a courthouse in the jurisdiction where your subject was tried, not from some patchwork database search. Do we ever use database services? Yes, but they’re from professional grade information resources who vet their subscribers and don’t sell retail. We use them as one of many tools to differentiate between potential records and authenticated records, then we track the authenticated records to their source.
That’s the INFORMED DECISION difference. We dig up the dirt, so you don’t get hurt!
