Although there are hundreds of pay-to-play background services available online today, one company has decided to offer basic background checks for free.
Nearly everyone knows that there is a wealth of information on every U.S. citizen available on the Internet today. Data on records related to criminal, marriage, divorce and reverse phone searches are often buried deeply under mountains of less critical information, but the info never really goes away, it is just very difficult to find many times. In the past, background checks used to require the services of a private investigator or third party information provider that had better access to buried or private data than the average citizen might not have. With the recent rise of hundreds of background search companies on the Web, background info became easier to obtain, but it was not free, and almost every search service provided only a few tantalizing tidbits of basic background info, but if you wanted more detailed data it required paying sometimes substantial fees depending on the amount of data provided.
While private citizens may have balked somewhat when asked to spend $25 to $50 to perform a background check on someone, employers were less resistant to paying the required fees. Criminal background checks can be critical to employers who need to discover background information about current or potential employees. Without a background check it was easy for people to report false information on employment applications in order to hide evidence of past fraud charges, violence, theft or other legal, moral and ethical problems that would normally interfere with the hiring process. Court records are another useful source of info for businesses and individual consumers who are searching for information about judgments, lawsuits or other data that is not normally accessible to the public.
Although reverse phone number searches can sometimes be accessed for free, the data does not go far beyond finding out the owner of a cell or landline phone number. The info provided from a reverse number search did usually include more information than a person’s name and number, and often included GPS maps, phone company information and perhaps a former street address for the owner of a number, but that was about the extent of what consumers could obtain for free.
Although the competition for customers among background search services on the Web has been a factor in the pricing structure for the industry, there is now a player in the game that has decided to offer basic searches for free. The Intelligator Search company now offers free basic searches for background checks from a variety of data sources including county records, criminal records, and more detailed reverse phone lookups on all cell, landline or prepaid phone numbers. The Intelligator search system now provides users immediate access to a variety of records in every U.S. state without a fee. Although Intelligator does charge fees for premium searches that provide more detailed data, most free searches will provide the basic background data that individuals and employers need the most. Part data management company and part background investigatory company, Intelligator now provides one of the fastest and most secure ways to obtain personal information that complies with FCC regulations concerning the release and distribution of public data online, all without having to pay a fee.
