ABOUT BUSINESS CHECKS
WHY DON'T YOUR BUSINESS CHECKS INCLUDE ALL ARRESTS?
For our Business Checks, we only include information about past criminal activity (arrests, convictions) and civil cases that involve Thefts, Fraud, Deceptive Business Practices or similar cases. We limit the information provided to incidents that may affect a subject's trustworthiness in terms of the service they are providing. Therefore, a DWI arrest or a civil matter involving child custody would not be noted. We do not seek to keep people with past indiscretions, that are not pertinent to their business, from being able to provide a useful service to their community.
WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT OPTIONS?
We accept cash, check, credit card, Cash App, Venmo, and PayPal. You may pay in person or over the telephone or digitally.
WHAT FORM ARE YOUR BUSINESS CHECKS PROVIDED IN?
Our Business Checks are provided in a concise Report Card to allow the customer to quickly review what information was located and to make a decision about whether the company or individual is trustworthy. The Report Card lists the different checks that were provided and notes whether pertinent information was located. For example, if a contractor has a previous arrest for Deceptive Business Practice, then in the "Arrest" section, there would be an "X" noted under the "Yes" column. You can see an example of the Report Card here
HOW LONG DOES A BUSINESS CHECK TAKE?
We commence work on the Business check as soon as we receive it. The exact delivery time varies as it is dependent on when payment is received and work volume.
WHY IS YOUR BUSINESS CHECK SERVICE NECESSARY?
Contractor fraud/scams are extremely easy to perpetrate and the scammers know that they can do it over and over again and it is unlikely that they will be arrested, let alone serve prison time. They can easily change their business name, obtain new business cards and a new phone number as well as new social media and start the process over again. While the scammers have found ways to circumvent the systems in place to protect the public, our service is designed to identify the scammers and allow the public to protect themselves, BEFORE they lose thier money.
I'VE ALREADY BEEN SCAMMED, CAN YOU STILL HELP ME?
Yes! Please contact our office to speak to an investigator to learn what investigative services may be utilized to assist you.
Also, as the input from the public increases, our databases become useful in identifying offenders with very limited information such as license plates, vehicle descriptions, and other partial data.
WHAT IS THE COST OF A BUSINESS CHECK?
The price of a single Business Check is $49. To learn about bulk discounts, please contact our office.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF ORDERING A BUSINESS CHECK?
Ordering a Business Check is a simple 3 part process. If you are ready to proceed, select "Continue" below and you will be asked to review and accept our Terms of Service, Disclaimers, and Fair Credit Reporting Act statement. Upon doing so, you will be taken to the next page where you will provide us your information and that of the businesses or contractor you wish to learn more about. Upon completion, you will be prompted to "Finalize Order" which will lead to the final step, which is the collection of your electronic signature. Office staff will contact you to collect payment.
As soon as your Business Check is complete, your Report Card will be sent to you via e-mail in PDF format. Please do not share the information as you agree that it is provided only for your use.
CAN I SHARE THE BUSINESS REPORT CARD?
We ask that you do not share the report card as only the purchaser has agreed to abide by all of the terms and conditions of obtaining this information.
WHAT IS CHECKED ON A BUSINESS CHECK?
The business check utilizes several of our databases that have access to nearly a billion records nationwide as well as our own databases. Some of the categories that are searched include (if applicable): criminal history, a name search of the principal owner/s, vehicle search, license plate search, state licensing, phone number search, County of El Paso registration/DBA, EP County Theft/Fraud/Deceptive Business Practices related arrest, criminal, and jail records; civil cases (non-family related), convictions (only Theft/Fraud/Deceptive Business Practices related), BBB registration, reviews, online and social media searches, our Deceptive Business Practice database, and others as necessary.
