How to Find the Best Online Background Check Sites.

A couple of years ago I found myself stuck in a total quagmire.  At the time, I needed to run a background check on someone for personal reasons so I figured I would just jump on the internet and search the term, “background check” to find the best option.  Once I did this, however, I found myself inundated with literally hundreds of sites all proffering to be the best possible option.

Making Sure Mr. Right Really Is Mr. Right

I have heard so many stories lately about innocent women (and men) who found out shocking things about their partners after months in the relationship… things that, had they known originally, would certainly have kept them from ever getting involved with that person to begin with.  It is a sad statement on our society!  It makes me scared to ever let me daughter date anyone… ever!

Is There Someone Else?

When you first meet someone that you really fall for, it is hard to think rationally.  That’s why they say, “love is blind”.  Everyone has met someone that turned their world upside down.  That feeling is simply incomparable.  You feel like you’re walking in the clouds, you’re happy, excited and you feel like your’re 16 again.  You find yourself smiling at nothing at all and you are so caught up in the way you feel that you wouldn’t know it if the world stopped turning.  However, how do you know if that person is really who they say they are?

Dating Advice: Don’t Guess… Know!

Dating is one of the most crucial processes we will ever go through in our lives.  It is the chance we have to ensure that the person we may become involved with is someone we really do want to become involved with.  It is a fun and exciting time in life which can lead to long-term happiness and fulfillment.  Unfortunately, the choices we make during this critical time can also lead to great heartache if we are decieved by our partner.

We have this one shot to find out who they truly are.  But it is very hard to know for sure based on our interactions alone.  And, to make things more difficult, we can’t just start asking the person we are dating if they have a criminal record for example.  These kinds of questions can damage trust in the relationship. 

So how can we make sure that the person we are dating is really the man or woman of our dreams without them knowing that we are “checking up” on them?  The answer is simple; we use public record searching. 

Did you know that, armed with just a cell phone number, you can find out a ton of information about someone?  With just this tiny piece of information, you can run a full background check on practically anyone.  And reverse phone lookups are just the tip of the iceburg.  With just a few mouse clicks you can find out if your “potentially” signficant other has a criminal record or if they have ever been married (or God forbid, are married). 

And you can do all this in complete anonymity!  They will have no idea that you are checking up on them so you do not have to ask any “sensitive” questions early on in a relationship.  It is easy, inexpensive and so, so important!

Do not guess when it comes to your happiness… know!  Make sure you truly know who you are dating.

How To Conduct An Online Background Check

Online Background Checks have become one of the hottest markets on the internet.  Literally hundreds of sites dedicated to public record searching have appeared in just the last few months.  Public record information is big business and Online Background Checks are the backbone of that business.

First of all, why would your average consumer need to run an online background check on someone?  Some of the reasons may include:

  1. If you run a small business, running a basic background check on prospective (and current) employees is a very wise and safe business practice.
  2. As a parent, background checks provide a powerful weapon in the battle to protect your children.  Don’t just hope your children are safe at the home of a school friend.
  3. Dating is hard enough without having to worry about what kind of person your companion really is.  If you are starting up a new relationship, make sure you truly know who that person is.  You cannot believe how much information is available!
  4. What if you are interested in locating an old friend from your youth.  Most public search sites offer People Locator services as a part of their background screening.

These are just a few of the many examples of why these services are so valuable to the average consumer.  The reasons to use them are endless and the amount of data available with just a few clicks of a mouse is truly mind-blowing!

So how do you run an online background check?  In the paper world of yesterday, this would involve fingerprints, forms in triplicate, personal identification cards, etc.  Today, all you need is a cell phone number or sometimes even an email address.  The easiest way to start is generally with the person’s name and at least the city they live in.  The more information you have up front, the easier it is to narrow down your search so that you get the report on the right person.  The steps are very basic:

  1. Go to the Online Background Check site of your choice.
  2. Enter the information you already have on the person in the search fields provided.  This generally includes Name, Phone Number and/or Address.
  3. Conduct the general search.  A list of potential “hits” will be generated along with some basic identifying information so that you can make sure you have the right John Doe.
  4. Once your search is narrowed down to the correct person, run the Background Check.

A word of caution… make sure you narrow your search down to the correct individual prior to running the full background report or you may pay for information you do not want.  Once the report is run, you cannot get your money back.  That is why all the legitimate services allow a pre-search option.

Most sites create a full report which you can save to your computer or print off for future reference.  The kind of information you can expect to receive in the report includes:

  • Full name including known aliases
  • Address history
  • Phone number history
  • Financial information such as 1st and 2nd mortgage amounts.
  • Criminal History
  • Arrest Record

Bear in mind this is a small list.  The actual reports contain tons of information.  This is just an example of types of data you may receive.

So how do you go about choosing a reliable Online Background Check service?  By far the easiest (and safest) way to go is to utilize online consumer review sites.  Review sites do the research and testing so that you don’t have to.  They weed out the inferior products and make sure that the best products are recognized.  www.CompleteReviews.net is a review site dedicated to Public Record Search products.  They provide in-depth reviews on all the various public record search offerings and rank the top 3 services in each category.

Online Background Checks are powerful tools in our high tech world.  They provide us with safety and security in our uncertain world.

Make Peace With a Reverse Cell Phone Lookup

Your boyfriend is acting strange.  He’s been late to pick you up a few times recently, and he seems withdrawn and quiet while you’re together.  He’s always been quick with a joke, and talkative.  But now, it’s like he’s eager to get the date over with.  Then you begin to notice the phone calls.  More and more often, his cell phone rings while you’re together, and he needs to step away to talk quietly to the voice on the other end.  He never used to do that.

Suspicions are growing, and you need to somehow put your mind at rest, or it’s going to blow up into an argument.  You’ve never had a real fight, and you don’t want it to go there, but the more you dwell on the clues you’ve seen, the more you’re wondering if he’s seeing someone else.  Where do you start?  What do you do or say to relieve the stress?  One of the simplest, and most effective actions you can take under these circumstances is to start with the “mystery cell phone caller.”  Why?  Because you can accomplish this without any confrontation at all.

Simply find out what number keeps calling, and write it down.  Later, when you’re alone, go to one of the sites online that offer a reverse cell phone lookup.  These sites are becoming more common, although they didn’t even exist a short time ago.  By entering the number and paying a small fee, you are provided with the name of the cell phone’s owner, their address, and many other pieces of information from the public record about the individual.  If she’s a potential home-wrecker, you have the facts to use as you see fit.  If it’s purely innocent, you have the peace of mind you were looking for.

This same technique can be very useful under the more serious situation of marital infidelity.  If the same scenario described above occurs in a marriage, it can result in tremendous heartache and even legal action, especially when children are involved.  Avoiding the rigors of suspicion and arguments and regaining peace in the home is truly important. 

If your spouse is giving you cause for concern, you may choose to use the reverse cell phone search for the same reason.  Then, when you determine the mystery caller is a potential threat to your marriage, use the facts you have learned as a basis for discussion with your spouse.  If you find the mystery caller is completely harmless, this too can serve as a basis for meaningful conversation, letting your spouse know how their behavior made you feel.  In both cases, the simple use of an inexpensive online search brings peace during a difficult time.  And who can put a price on that?
