Learn How to Do A Background check Properly

There are two main search category’s that are used when searching for friends, colleges, the missing and people we don’t know, but want to learn more about their background.

The internet has been a haven for these background check companies because they can claim false promises, they claim to give you the world but give you little more that you could have done your self for free.

No one knows you better than you ! so that is a good starting point to see if the results are accurate.
With this bit of knowledge we will uncover where you should start.

The two different search category’s are:

1. People Search – Locating friends and Missing persons.

The most obvious place to begin is the most popular Search Engine in the World Google There are a few techniques that can help you to find background information, phone numbers, addresses, maps, even news items.
You can use Google to find residential and business phone numbers,
A reverse phone number lookup
A “reverse lookup” means you’re using the phone number you have already to track down further information.

You can find a lot of information about someone simply by entering their name in quotation marks, like this: “John Doe”

Google Image search is a very easy way to search for someone, almost everyone is a member of a social networking website and they will have a profile photo. This is very easy if you have some idea what the person looks like.

Create a Google alert for the name of who you are looking for. to set up a Google News Alert, go to the main Google Alerts Main page.

Also Google Maps can be helpful. You can also see reviews of businesses within Google Maps simply by clicking on their map listing, as well as any websites, addresses, or associated phone numbers.

2. Background Search and Public Records

This is the area that is very misleading and a bit daunting once you see what is on offer. Where do you start?
There are some free resources out there but be warned. If you see “Free Trial” this usually means that you will have to pay for results. You will be given an example of what the results will look like, and the example will not be related to your search.

Don’t give credit card details to see the results of the “search” !

These are a few steps that you need to do and should do first.

Find out the correct name of the person
Find their Date of Birth, without these two details don’t bother searching.

Do a Sex Offender search then a Federal Prison Inmate search followed by a Department of Corrections search

and Search Available County and State Court Databases. All these searches are provided by government with no cost, you should take the time to do these preliminary searches to gain the most information you can before you begin.

Now you are ready to find a Background Search database.

As you now know there are thousands of these database websites claiming to give you free or cheap results, Crime Case Files has a extensive database of crime cases and records which you can search for free.

Here is a list a of Background Check websites that I have used in the past that have been accurate and helpful. They have provided good and reliable information.

Where does this Information come from?

With the huge success of Social Networking namely Facebook and Twitter there is now a generation that publishes their day to day activity’s in the new “timeframe” structure let alone their not so discrete photos of their drunken work Christmas party, making a move on the bosses wife.

Yes there are privacy functions, but how do you gain friends (that you don’t know) to “like or “poke”

Compiling Information about people has never been so easy, so have a think about what you post online because once it is there it will stay there !
