BEWARE OF: Internet Instant Criminal History Searches!images (60)

There are Hundreds of online companies that offer INSTANT criminal history Searches but Don’t trust the safety of your employees to “virtual” background screening companies!  Do you trust a Online criminal history search company that has no established CREDIBILITY, PHYSICAL ADDRESS or PHONE NUMBER!  When a Employer is considering implementing a Pre-Employment screening program, it is important for them to ask themselves, Do I prefer to have a experienced Pre-Employment screening representative to whom I can communicate with and ask questions performing the Pre-Employment screening? or would I rather submit my employee applications to a Online Pre-screening Company that gives me a report instantly, but may have possibly report, incomplete, or unverifiable information to make my hiring decision?  Here are 5 Major Factors to Remember if considering a instant criminal history search company:

1. Instant Criminal records databases can be incomplete & do not contain records from all states and jurisdictions.

2. Instant Criminal records may lack sufficient details only reporting only felonies or offenses in which a state corrections unit was involved.

3. Name Variation. An electronic search of a vendor’s database may not recognize variations in a subject’s name, surnames or alias.

4. Given the size of the American population, it’s possible you will find two or more people with the same name who also share other identifiers.

5.The records in a vendor’s database may be stale or may not go back far enough. Most vendors update these records monthly at best.
