There are lots of good reasons you might decide a background check is in order.
The Internet Age has made it easier than ever to check up on almost anyone’s past, and many of the resources to do this are free. But how does one go about conducting an effective online background check? Here are some rock solid tips to help you complete your mission. If you are an employer or landlord using a third party (like those that produce consumer credit reports – Equifax, etc.) to screen potential employees, you MUST comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and be able to document that you have done so.
If you find adverse information, it’s only fair to ask the person about it before casting them aside like so much garbage.
So, if you use the search engines and other free tools for your background checks, be aware that you need to take necessary steps to verify that the information which you have found is true.

You may conduct a motor vehicle records search only for a purpose permitted under the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994 (“DPPA”), 18 U.
