What is a Background Check?

by | May 15, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

You hear about background checks all the time. But what are they exactly? A background check looks into a person’s history to uncover the truth about their character. These checks examine personal records involving criminal activity and education as well as professional records like an employment history or references. Whitesell Investigative Services offers comprehensive background checks in South Carolina. Here’s what you need to know.

  • When and why do you need a background check? These types of investigations are frequently used for new hires, investment opportunities, hiring nannies, and renting to new tenants. Background checks for dating are also becoming quite common.
  • What are the different ways you can conduct a background check? Background checks can be automated through online services. However, these often contain many inaccuracies and omissions. Every record must be independently verified. Licensed private investigators like the ones at Whitesell Investigative Services do the research themselves. They’ll deliver solid, accurate information about the person you’re checking out.
  • What’s it like to work with an Investigator? Your private investigator will need you to provide as much information as possible. This includes the person’s full name, Social Security number, place of birth, educational records, and employment records. The more information you can provide, the faster the process will be. It will also improve your chances for getting trustworthy results. An investigator will also be able to discern the person’s nature based on interviews and by examining their professional and personal histories.

As you can see, background checks are extensive. That’s why you need to work with a licensed private investigator. Call Whitesell Investigative Services for background checks throughout South Carolina, including Rock Hill, Fort Mill, Indian Land, Lancaster, Clover, Lake Wylie, Tega Cay, and Chester.
