Curious About Someone’s Past? Here’s a Free Background Check

By Grant Dougan

Taking a look into someone’s past is a step you may have considered for a variety of reasons. Maybe you want to gain more information about a person you just began dating, or perhaps you want to check the background of a prospective employee. Luckily, it’s now easier than ever to obtain information through an online background check.

It used to be that the only way to investigate someone’s past was to hire an investigator to drum up hidden information. Not only was this a time consuming and pricey endeavor, it wasn’t always terribly reliable either.

The good news is that the process has gotten much easier. Thanks in large part to the web, it’s quick and easy to get information on just about anyone as long as you have a working Internet connection.

There are companies that specialize in maintaining an enormous database containing background information on just about anyone. To access this information, you just run a simple database search and see what kind of information is available.

There are a number of advantages to this type of search. The main advantage is the scope of information that you can receive. This includes residential addresses, work history, marriage and domestic court records, civil and financial court records, and criminal court records too. The amount of available information is astounding.

While it’s true that these companies do charge a fee for this service, it’s not outrageously expensive. If you find the service useful and intend to do multiple searches, you can even pay a one-time flat fee for unlimited access to the background search database.

Before you pay for this kind of search, you might see if you can come up with some free information from Google. The way to do this is to type the person’s name in the search field in quotes, for example “John Smith”. If you know where the person lives, then include that information too (e.g., “John Smith” San Francisco). Then click the search button and see what you find.

In reality, chances are pretty slim that you’ll actually find relevant information. It can’t hurt to try, though. The only way any information will be available is if something is published online about the person, in which case Google will find it for you.

It’s easy to get the “skinny” on just about anybody with an online background check. With just your internet connection and couple of minutes, you can have access to a wealth of information with this handy tool.

Click Here to run a background check on any person – you just have to type in their name. This online personal background check will reveal full details about the person’s past and is extremely helpful when making hiring decisions!
