Date Background ChecksLadies, did you know that nowadays there's an easy way to check out a man you'redating?
you can run a free date background check.It can be done absolutely for free using online public record websites, though,needless to say, if you prefer, you can always pay a company like Intelius or USSearch to do it for you.But if you choose to pay an online company to run your date background check, the cost can exceed $100 for a thorough report. Also these companies all rely heavily on online databases in conducting their date background investigations
notthe ideal method, as discussed below. For these reasons, I recommend you switchon your computer and do the background-checking yourself. It'll take a half hour or so, but it'll be free and you can be more confident in the results. And,by the way, your background checking will remain confidential
nobody but you hasto know you've run the searches.So what kinds of date background check info can you find out about your boyfriend or fiance' ? An amazing range of information is available.Here's a small sampling --Is he married/divorced?Does he have children?What job does he have? What's his approximate income?Where does he live and what real estate does he own?Does he have a criminal record?Was he honorably discharged from the military?Is he an alcoholic or drug user?... and much, much more.Now, please understand, you do not have to be a gumshoe or seasoned private eyeto find out this kind of information. All you need is an Internet-connected computer and a telephone.Did you know that nearly all of the 3257 counties in the US now have websites which make public records available, including real estate, criminal, marriage/divorce, and much more?And that's not all. Every state also provides a huge variety of public information online. And so does the federal government. And nearly all of this information is fresh, not stale database info. As I hinted above, there's a problem with paying an online company to run a background check for you, in that they willinevitably utilize databases aggregated from all 50 states and the District ofColumbia. That's fine, except it takes a lot of time to put those huge databases together. And while they're collecting and aggregating all this data into databases, guess what, it is getting out-of-date! Plus, they often leave out someof the smaller counties, making their national databases incomplete. Result: the background reports they run are often inaccurate.So it's better and more reliable
and cheaper -- to do your date background checkyourself by visiting the public-records websites of specific counties or statesand then doing a simple name search. For example, has your boyfriend, let's call him James Stephens, had any criminal convictions? If you know the county helives in you may be able to use Google to find that county's website, then clickon public records or criminal records and run a name search for James Stephens(you'll need to also know his date of birth).
