How to get a Criminal Record Expunged or Sealed

Having any kind of criminal record can have dire long-term consequences.  It can prevent you from getting a job, from being accepted to school, from adopting children, etc.  But mistakes made in our past don’t necessarily need to haunt us for the rest of our lives.  In many cases, a criminal record can be sealed or even expunged.  This in turn may allow you to legally never mention the conviction again (unless you want to work for the F.B.I. or something).

Reverse Email Lookup: CompleteReviews.net Recommended Sites

Of all the public record search products, reverse email lookup is one of the most difficult to find.  Not many companies offer this service and to be honest, the results success rate is lower than with other products.  The reason is that so many companies like Yahoo and Google allow users to easily create email accounts based on phony credentials.  But that is no cause for concern as the reverse email lookup sites recommended by CompleteReviews.net have a “No Hit, No Pay” policy.

Reverse Look Up On Cell Phone Numbers

For as long as I can remember, if I wanted to know someone’s phone number I could just grab that huge ugly yellow book and look it up. If I wanted to know who owned a phone number I could just call information services. Then we recieved a gift from heaven… caller id! Gone were the days I spent prank calling random people in my town cause if I did, they called me right back and asked for my parents!

Caller id was such a cool invention because it helped remove anonymity from the telephone. It made people more accountable for their actions. Of course some learned ways to work around that little box but for the most part, it served its purpose.

Well, unfortunately, anonymity has re-entered the world of electronic communications. Only this time it is cellular phones that are the culprit. How does one go about looking up someone’s cell phone number? Or better yet, how do you find out who owns a specific cell number? Where is that big yellow book? It is on the internet my friend and it is easier than ever to find what you are looking for!

Armed with just a cell phone number, reverse phone look up services can allow you to find not only the owner of that phone number, but also their address, criminal history, mortgage carrier, relatives, neighbors and more. Now that is some serious power!

The only drawback is that reverse phone look ups are not free. Some internet ads may lure you in with claims that they are free but, trust me, it is just a way to hook you in. By “free” they mean, the search is free to do. Of course if you want to actually see the information that results from said search… well that part is not so free.

www.CompleteReviews.net has invested countless hours into research and testing the reverse phone lookup marketplace and we have uncovered some excellent products. These services do not claim to be free. They tell you right up front what you are going to have to pay for their services. By the way, it is generally about $14 for a successful search but all 3 top products offer unlimited search add-ons for less than $10. The sites we recommend have all passed rigorous testing protocols that have proven they have the data (over 3 billion records to work with) to backup their assertion that they are the best in the industry.

So you can spend hours and waste money chasing after the ads you will find all over the internet claiming free services, or you can go with a trusted, tested, proven product that will provide you with exactly what you need… information!

How To Run An Online Background Check On Your Politicians!

I have been working with online background check products for a long time now. I evaluate them for the purpose of identifying top products for the consumer review site www.CompleteReviews.net.
I also have great interest in the welfare of our country and have long been concerned with the status of our increasingly corrupt political environment. I have often wished that there were a way to demand greater accountability from our “leaders”.

As part of my testing of public record search products, I conduct random people searches to make sure that the product is able to access the amount of data it purports to access. I was testing a popular online background check tool when I got the bright idea to try and run a background check on President Obama. I mean, his information is a matter of public record the same as anyone but I guess I assumed it would be somehow hidden or protected. Wasn’t I surprised when up popped his recent address history, his home telephone number (unlisted in normal phone books) for his Chicago area home, a listing of his neighbors, what he paid for his residence, etc. etc.

I got very excited! I had never dreamed that these products could be put to such good use! So I started running background checks on other politicians like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, my local governor, mayor and others. In each case I was able to uncover an amazing amount of information. These reports are very thorough! They are able to uncover criminal records, sex offender records, marriage records, divorce records, address history, unlisted phone numbers, relatives and more. Just think what you could accomplish with some of that information!

Most of our leaders are able to maintain a certain level of anonymity. That is wrong in my book! If they want to be a public servant, then the public should have access to them! I am so tired of all the criminals that hold public offices. Now I don’t mean to say that they are all crooks but the trend of corruption is disturbing!

The internet provides real power to the people! We can make sure that those we are voting for, or against for that matter, are being completely truthful about themselves. We can use the power of the internet to find out everything we need to about our potential or current leaders without having to rely solely on what their “image consultants” tell us through supposedly neutral network news channels!

All you need is a name to get started and you can uncover a wealth of information! If you want to run an Online Background Check on your politicans, visit www.CompleteReviews.net for access to the highest rated public record search products on the market.  Each one is thoroughly tested and guarantees results.

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.

Saving Small Business Through Online Background Checks

If there is one thing that all small businesses have in common, it is a heavy reliance on their smaller workforce.  Employees know each other more personally, the business is generally regarded as a second family.  Each employee matters more, has a greater overall impact on the business as a whole. 

In a larger business, if an employee ends up stealing from the company, it definitely has an impact but not nearly as much as it does on smaller businesses (unless we are talking about CEO bonuses…).  A single person can destroy a small business while only creating a small blip on the radar of the big boys.  Consequently, small business owners must take greater care in hiring the “right” people and in making sure they remain the “right” person for the job.

In order to be employed at any major company, an in-depth background check is performed proving that the individual is who they say they are and that there is nothing in their past or present which could negatively impact their job performance.  These reports are expensive but big business has learned that the payoff is worth the cost.  Look at it as shoring up an investment.

Small business has an even greater need to screen potential and even current employees due to the disastrous impact a single person can have on their company.  But smaller businesses rarely have an HR department to oversee such things.  Due to the amount of time it takes and the cost involved in running background checks, they are rarely done.  This has to change!

With advancing technology come new and improved services in all areas of life.  This is even true for Online Background Checks.  The public record search business has increased dramatically over the last few years.  New web sites offering reverse phone lookups, background checks, People Locators, criminal record searches, etc. are popping up every day.  The competition is intense and consequently, the services are getting really good.

Now, armed with just a name or even a cell phone number, small business owners can run a full background check on any prospective employee in less than 10 minutes.  It is extremely easy and fast.  But not only has heavy competition improved the overall services, it has also dramatically reduced pricing.  Background checks historically have been very expensive, costing upwards of $100 or more.  Now, some sites are offering unlimited background checks for as little as 19.95 per month.

In today’s marketplace, small business owners can hardly afford not to avail themselves of these services!  The only issue is in knowing which ones to use.  There are literally hundreds of sites offering the “same” services but are they truly the same?  Review sites such as www.CompleteReviews.net have found an alarming disparity in sites proporting to offer identical services.  It takes time, money and know-how to adequately test and compare all of these offerings.  Review sites are dedicated to the consumer… to making sure they know what they are buying ahead of time.  Review sites are also often able to access preferred pricing for the sites lucky enough to receive a positive recommendation. 

Online Background Checks are a must for smaller companies.  They offer the security that small business owners need when hiring a new employee.  Don’t just hope or assume that prospective and current employees are who they say they are, find out for yourself.  Limit your risk by investing in the security of your company!  Visit www.CompleteReviews.net today for a listing of the top rated Online Background Check services on the market!

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.

Who Owns This Number?

Who doesn’t have a cell phone nowadays?  Just look around the next time you are driving (hopefully as the passenger) and notice how many people are talking on their phones.  In fact, more and more people are completely replacing their traditional land lines with cellular phones.  In the past, if you wanted to look up a phone number you could just use a phone book or sometimes call the operator.  With cell phones, this becomes more challenging.

Many people believe that it just isn’t possible to find the owner of a cellular phone number without that person’s direct consent but this is not necessarily true.  All phone records are owned by someone.  In the case of cell phone numbers, the ownership records are in the care of the cellular service provider.  And these providers make the phone records available to Public Search entities (for a price).

So how can you access this information?  How can you lookup the owner of a cell phone number?  Simple, you access one of the many reverse phone lookup sites, enter the phone number and (after a small fee) you are presented with an amazing amount of information on that individual.

Be wary, however, as there are many scams out there.  Some sites will profess to have the information you need only to not produce results after you have paid for the search.  Finding the right site is the most important step in the process of conducting reverse phone lookups.

www.CompleteReviews.net/reversephonelookup.html is a third-party review site dedicated to testing and ranking reverse phone lookup services.  They have done extensive testing of many of the available services and have ranked their top 3 recommended sites.  The provide a detailed review of each provider along with current pricing information.

Be a smart consumer and know before you buy.  Using a review site saves you time and money!

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?

www.CompleteReviews.net/reversephonelookup.html offers in-depth reviews of the top reverse phone lookup sites.
