Private Background Check

Do you have need to perform a background check on someone? Maybe you are thinking of suing someone. Or, your widowed Mother has a new boyfriend. Suspicious activity in your neighborhood? We can help.

Employee Background Check

Are you on a hiring spree? Bad hires cost money. Employee background checks are legal as long as you comply with the law. We can supply critical details to help you make the right decision.

Criminal Background Check

Again, perfectly legal if you comply with the law. Daughter have a new “friend?” Money disappearing from your cash register? Protect your business and loved ones with a thorough criminal background check.

Renter Background Check

Probably our most popular type of Background Check. Property owners are tired of getting stuck with damage to their property and non-payment of monthly rents. Take care of it BEOFORE you rent!

Pre-Marital Background Check

New love? Get the details with a background check on your new mate. Fast, discreet, accurate. Lifelong commitments demand special attention. Get the facts for peace of mind.

The Background Check Process

Supply Us With the Following

Simply send us the last known address information on your subject along with any other pertinent information. Email attachments are preferred, but please feel free to mail anything to us to us. We’ll keep you informed.


We take the contact/address information you provided, verify that information with what is already in the “system,” and then get to work. It doesn’t matter if you’re requesting a Skip Trace or a Private Investigation – we are going to provide you with the most up-dated information possible. No messing around here. Turnaround time is usually 24 hours – or less.

Accurate, Verified Information

This is what it comes down to. You need accurate information – we deliver. We try to verify everything with at least two pieces of documentation – and take extra steps to make sure you are receiving the most accurate information available.

Frequently Asked Questions About Background Checks

Is My Search Confidential?

Absolutely. All of our search specialists are required to sign a confidentiality agreement. Rest assured – your identity is safe with us. Your information is discussed only with you. Your subject will never know that we are conducting a Background Check, and no one outside of you and us has access to the results.

Can I Actually Speak With You?

Of course, and we strongly encourage this. Call us at 619-865-5421 – pretty much any time with any questions you may have. Try doing that with an “Online Database Provider.” We take pride in our accessibility. We completely understand that you may be looking for a Background Check that is very unique and specific.

How Much Will the Search REALLY Cost Me?

Most searches are around $95. It kind of depends on what you’re looking for as well as the information you provide us with to begin the search. There are no hidden costs, fees, or taxes. No contracts – no hassles.

Why are others Offering Searches for $49 or $7.95?

Because their information is old. I suppose there may be some value if you’re simply doing a batch search to obtain basic information – but that’s not us. We DO NOT use those databases. I wrote an informative article on exactly how skip tracing databases work. You’re going to be surprised.

What Do You Include in Your Reports?

A lot, actually. Basically, verified addresses, phones, and emails. Business addresses, PO Boxes, and past addresses if relevant. Close relatives and associates. Criminal records, judgments, lines, bankruptcy. Assets including property, vehicles, and toys. And much more.

Why Should I Choose You Guys?

Our success rate is off the charts. Why? Because we know what we’re doing. We understand that your Background Check Search Request is important to YOU. We’ve been doing this for quite some time now. With over 20 years experience, we’ll take care of you. Guaranteed.

I Need Information Right Away. Can You Help?

This is where we excel. We have had Attorney’s call us from the court house, and provided them information within minutes. We ask that you give us up to 24 hours – we want to get things right. We know how important ACCURATE information is to you.

Do You Have a Guarantee?

Of course we do. If we cannot provide you with verified information on your subject – there is no charge. In fact, we’ll give you the information that we did find – or cannot be 100% sure of – at no charge. You can read more about our refund policy here, but just know that we’ll take care of you.

I Have an Unusual Request. Can You Help?

We sure can. Don’t be shy – you might be surprised by some of the Background Search Requests we receive. Some are a bit off-the-wall, but we usually come up with a solution. If we are unable to help, we can certainly point you in the right direction. Either way, we’ll help solve your dilemma. We’ve been around long enough to know that things can get crazy. I should write a book some day.

Is There Any Type of Search You Won’t Do?

Yep. Plenty of them. We’re professionals, so spammers and scammers need not apply. We do not perform “batch” searches, but do offer nice discounts for multiple search requests. Celebrities, minors, and high-ranking officials are off limits. For a more extensive list, check out Searches We Won’t Do.
