Find background check information tips. Pt. 2

Much of a person’s background can be found within readily available public records. However, your actual investigation will vary according to what information you have available at the onset. Usually the hardest investigation to put together is one where you only have a subject's name.

Depending on the purpose of the background check it can consist of the following:

· Police Record Check
· Credit Check
· Court Records Check
· Education Check
· Previous Employment Check
· Neighborhood Check
· Personal References
· Background Check

Checking previous employment can be as simple as making a phone call but of course will vary from business to business. Most businesses will not release any personal background information but can and often will verify employment dates and overall performance of the person you are trying to find information on.

Checking with neighbors can sometimes provide you with information that you would not have been able to obtain elsewhere. However, such information can be unreliable and usually requires a good pretext to obtain. It is usually worth the effort since it often finds other leads for you to follow.

Personal references such as those usually requested on an employment application are usually not even worth checking unless you have very specific questions that you feel might be answered. It goes without saying that not many if any will list references that have anything but good reports to offer. The actual personal references that a subject provides may offer you a more accurate picture of your subject than what they actually have to say. (i.e.: Do the references include professional people or respected citizens etc.)

Many investigators and other researchers will use online Internet information brokers and background check services to obtain public records. Nonetheless, with a little leg work, Internet surfing and research, one can find most of your subject’s background information from public records sources.

It should be noted that this section’s purpose within the program is not to provide you with the actual addresses, phone numbers and Internet locations for a background check investigation but rather to provide you with a general overview of what is available for performing a background check. The actual sources where you can find information are provided in various formats elsewhere within the member’s section.
The purpose of the reference information in this section is to provide you with general information on some of the sources that investigators and others use to find people. The actual links and addresses to these information sources are located elsewhere within the member’s section.

With the exception of adoption cases and those that have made every effort to hide, everyone leaves a paper trail that can be followed when you know how to find it. The actual sources that will prove useful to you in your search are quite often decided by what information you have about your target at the onset. Therefore it is best to start your search by gathering every piece of information that you can find and putting it into one central place such as a journal. The Members Case Log is provided for such use.

Hopefully you are fortunate enough to find the person you are searching for immediately, however, if not, you can use your journal to record any new pieces of information you find along the way. As you find data about your target, not only will your journal become larger but so will the list of information sources that you can use.

If you are not already a member of some background check membership service, let me recommend the best. Net detective offers an unlimited membership for less than $10 a year. That means access to all the tools, resourses and unlimited public records searches. They offer how-tos and a great arsenal of tools that you just won’t find on a regular Internet search. The best part is that they search all of these source, conventional and oddball every time you perform a search in the member’s section
