We Want To Know: Are Free Online Background Checks Really Free?

By Belinsa A. Keefeor

This is the question of the day. There are many times that someone says what they offer is free, but when you read the fine print, you find out that it’s not free at all. Let’s take a look at how some of them might not be free. Then you will see why many wonder this question. It might have you wondering if there are free online background checks really free.

One of the first ways that it might not be free is the use of affiliate marketing. They tell you it’s free, but then as you go to give your information, you have to accept one of their great offers from those who sponsor their site. This is one way it won’t seem free because until you select one, you aren’t getting anything.

Then there is the old tactic where they say it’s free, but before you get your free thing, you have to check out a website or click one of their offers. Until you do this, you then don’t get your free background check. This gives other businesses the hits that they want or need. Then, until you do click on one of these things, you don’t get it.

Some will tell you it’s free, but when you go to get the information you need when it comes to the background check, you find out that you have to pay extra for what you want to know. This isn’t free. So, here again, it’s not free and you are stumped.

Some of them are free, but those are few. You really have to do your research. We would like to warn you not to give information like your credit card number so that you aren’t charged. Many have been scammed by this. You don’t have to be as well. When you do your research, you will learn if it’s really free or not.

So, when you are wondering if these are really free, it all depends. It depends on what you are looking for. It depends on where you are looking. It depends on much more than this. The question can be debated.
