From Basic Information to Comprehensive Checks
Background checks are customized to fit the specifications of our clients. We can simply verify a person’s identity or provide a comprehensive and detailed investigation on a person’s online reputation, criminal histories, job and employment histories, and their family and acquaintances.
Today, most of our clients request a deep web and social media investigation. Usually, they’re looking for a quick reputation management check or trying to create a type of “profile” surrounding the subject of the investigation.
Although background checks are composed of different types of information and data-sets, there are two main types of information that will get embedded into a report:
Public information does not mean “easy to find;” it just means that it can be accessed by the public without special licensing – should they know where and how to find and request access to it. Some public data reports can take hours to compile as we collect data that many consider to be “easily” obtainable.
Private information is information that is extremely difficult to obtain, requiring special licensing to collect, access to specialized database, or legal paperwork. Our team has access to different types of database systems to help us track down background information, but it still takes manual work to verify the information is correct before we submit this to the client.
Our background reports can include:
Credit Reports – this type of information is usually included in a “credit header,” which gives us information about the current credit lines, bankruptcies, judgments, liens, financial lawsuits, and possible foreclosures on prior residences.
Driving Records – this information typically includes prior traffic violations, motor vehicle accidents, license revocations, license suspensions, current or active residences, and possibly the type of vehicle the subject operates.
Criminal Records – Although criminal records can be expunged, most records remain open to the public. When that’s the case, our team can collect information on a subject that includes court orders, judgments, warrants, arrest records, sex offender registration and violations, harassment complaints, and violations.
Education Verification – This information is more easily accessible when a school or university is known If this information is unknown, there are ways to obtain this information, but a more thorough investigation is required.
Military Records – Although military records are difficult to obtain, they are not impossible. If requested, we can get basic information, such as: Active duty location, final duty location, duty assignment, final rank, medals, citations & violations, discharge information (when available).
Professional Licensing – this information includes private investigator licensing, CPA Certifications, MD, RN, or Attorney licensing, Hunting & Fishing licensing, Law Enforcement licensing, and teaching licensing, where available.
Address Histories – Most of our reports include a comprehensive address history for the subject of our investigation. This information includes their own residential address along with the addresses of known relatives, acquaintances, and possible family friends who may be associated with the subject.
Asset Verification – A complete list of assets can be provided when our clients are looking for hidden assets across the United States. We do have capabilities to run international hidden asset verifications through third party contracts, but this information is difficult to obtain in most countries.

Whether you’re just looking to verify a person’s reputation or you need to conduct a comprehensive investigation into a subject’s past, our team can make it happen and get you the information you need.
