Employment Screening:

SCREEN potential employees to prevent falsified or fraudulent data, negligent hiring, employee theft and violence in the workplace. ACCESS national, state and county level criminal history. MAKE informed hiring or promoting decisions.

Why should I screen applicants?

Applications frequently contain false or distorted data. Screening eliminates the potential for theft, violence, drug abuse, fraud and costly litigation from negligent hiring. All employees should be screened regardless of position or size and type of company.

Over 60% of applicants have a bad credit history, a criminal past, bad driving history or falsified information on their application. Theft in the workplace occurs in over 90% of companies – $150 Billion lost annually because of workplace fraud and theft

Tenant Screening

PROTECT your rental interests from problem tenants.  LEARN fact from fiction with eviction data, criminal history, ID verification and bankruptcy checks.  ELIMINATE the burden of tedious background research.  RENT safely and economically for one unit or multiple units.

For a successful tenancy, it is important to diligently screen applicants. Past bankruptcy, liens, judgments, evictions, fraud and sex offenses not only indicate potential problems, but could leave you responsible in negligent litigation.

In 2003, consumers had over 2 trillion in outstanding credit with over 1.3 million filing for bankruptcy. This amount is increasing at a rate of over 4.4% annually.

Over 30% of civil litigation involves contract disputes such as evictions.

Over 13 million arrests are made annually in the United States. These offenses range from fraud to sexual and violent offenses.


COLLECT your unpaid debt, new or old, with the same products used by government agencies.  SKIP-TRACE and LOCATE individuals from their credit reports, assets, existing bank accounts, DMV records and/or public records.  SEND collection letters, past-due letters and e-mails instantly.

Most individuals with a collection past are hard to find and intentionally move from place to place. Skip tracing products are essential when trying to find these individuals. Once located, methods for collecting debt include letters, recurrent phone calls and/or legal action. Collection letters and/or “bait” letters may also be sent instantly.

Skip Tracing

Skip tracing is the practice of locating hard-to-find individuals. This is achieved with searches, social traces, credit reports, asset searches and/or public records. These searches can result in direct hits, past and present contact information, traces of activity, contact information of relatives and neighbors, civil suits, public records and/or motor vehicle registration.
