How to Really Do a Free Background Check and If it Doesn't Work, What to Do!


Visitors: 222

A situation has happened in your life or in your business and now you need to find out how to do a free background check. It could be anything: a new doctor, new teacher, someone you met online, a prospective employee, hiring a nanny or babysitter or a myriad of other situations that occur in our everyday life. So if you're reading this, you are on the road to really discovering how to try to get a free background search. And if it doesn't work for you, this article will tell you what to do next.

First things first; does a background check exist that is really free?

That is sometimes difficult to answer. Of course you can find information online about anyone and perhaps get a free background check. The question really is can you get the same results that investigative companies get without paying for it?

If the person you are searching for has a very unique name and you happen to know their address or place of business, then you have a chance of getting some decent information. And even if they don't have a unique name, it's free after all, so try anyway.

When you are trying to get a free background check on the web, you should use the two biggest search engines: Google and Yahoo. They claim that you can get just about any information you want. That's true to a degree, but as I said, it's free, so it's worth a try.

Most people that want to do a background search are looking for some or all of the following information:

  • Criminal records
  • Sex offenses
  • Civil lawsuits
  • Employment - current and past
  • Motor vehicle records
  • DUIs
  • Marital status
  • Past divorces if any
  • Credit check
  • Bankruptcies
  • Much more information

    Most of the time, much of this information will not be found on a free background check. But, for the third time I've said it, you are not paying for it so it's worth trying it to see what you get.

    So what do you do to get yourself information without paying for it?

    Go to Google and/or Yahoo and type in the person's name with parentheses around it. That will ensure that the results you get are just that name and in that order. Try both search engines and when you get the results, look through the first page or two, but then go to page 10, then 20, then maybe page 50. You will find that not all of the best information is necessarily on the first few pages.

    If your effort for a free background check doesn't get you the results you're hoping for, then perhaps you should investigate online investigative companies. But remember, they should always offer a money back guarantee if they don't give you the results you're looking for. Also, make sure that they are endorsed by major U. S. corporations such as: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and many others.

    Don't wait any longer! Get that information you've been wondering about in a matter of minutes and in the privacy of your own home!
