Understanding What Goes Into A Background Check
What is a background Check? A background check or background investigation is the process of looking up and compiling criminal records, commercial records and financial records of an individual or an organization.
How active is the subject or organization? The larger the social footprint, the more public the person has been, the more information a professional investigator must identify, locate and present to the client. A reclusive person who avoids online activity is quantifiably more difficult to obtain information from, but in this day and age it is almost impossible to live and have a business without having some footprint. If it is there, we will find it when topical searches fail and for this reason employ a flat rates. This is what we are passionate about.How significant are your potential/actual loss/losses? Logically it does not always make sense to spend thousands of dollars when trying to recoup a small amount unless your principals exceed the costs. If you are seeking a judgement against someone and are seeking any piece of information to support your claim, you may have to dig deep. Needless to say, the deeper you may want to go, the more expensive the search can get. How common is the persons/organizations name? Conducting a background check for "John Smith" would be very different that conducting one for "Ashleigh Fairington". While most of the time you may have an additional piece of information like a business name, that does not always guarantee easy search results. Many individuals have learned the art of not connecting their name topically to their business and require extensive time and attention to social posts in order to flush out results. Simple variations in spelling of a registered cattery can differ from the use of that name online, i.e. Cats Haven, Catz Heaven etc. Here we use a multitude of time tested and proven methods to comprehensively find what we are looking for. We will search court dockets by city, new articles, chat forums, etc. when conducting investigations if need be to find and analyze past conduct, as the past is the best predictor of the future, so that you can make the most informed decision possible. What are the potential risks of exposure? A small business owner may do many tasks on their own like answering emails and or telephone clients. If they have heard your voice and or a dispute has put them in a position to protect themselves by avoiding certain area codes, blocking on social media, etc. may hamper the ability to obtain information. Maintaining anonymity is our number one priority until all sources have been tracked and analyzed. We leave no stone unturned and have a network of good breeders all over the world whom work tirelessly on your behalf to make sure all objective data is uncovered. Summary Ultimately, what a background check should provide is peace of mind or a deeper understanding of someone so that you can confidently make an informed decision, something that an online background check, a low-cost general background check or a private investigator who lacks experience within the breeding world conducting a background check cannot provide.
