Gov Registry

GOV REGISTRY Visit Site

Cost:

$4.95 for 7-day trial

$19.95/month

Gov Registry has been around for almost 15 years. According to their site, they offer a monthly membership of $19.95 that includes access to more than 1 billion records such as Sex Offender checks, Address Histories, and Civil Judgments.

The Gov Registry site feels outdated and clunky to use. When we searched for our own information, we did get a list of 53 records of people with our name in our state of residence. The column including age information had no information for any of the records, just filler text. And, while it did tell us the various cities that each individual had lived in, there was no way to know if the record it came up with from our city was the record that matched us.

Interestingly, when we clicked on the "Buy Report" button, it took us to a checkout page for another service in our review: Info Tracer. The Info Tracer service is much more comprehensive than what we found on the Gov Registry site; plus, it would seem to make more sense to work with Info Tracer directly rather than going through the Gov Registry site.

Especially given that the copyright date for the Gov Registry site was listed as 2013, it seems safe to say that you're more likely to get the information you need by going directly to Info Tracer or, better yet, one of the other up-to-date background check services in our review.

Background Report 360

BACKGROUND REPORT 360 Visit Site

Cost:

$29.95 for a one-time full background report

$9.95/month for a one-year unlimited search pass

According to the Background Report 360 website, you can get a full background check in less than a minute in three easy steps. How does their service compare with the competition?

Background Report 360 didn't even come close to returning the amount of information provided by other background check services. When we searched for ourselves, it only came up with one person with the same name - but it wasn't the right person. Other sites found us quickly, along with at least a half-dozen other individuals in the same state with the same name.

Then, on the "View Results" page, there were several links under Criminal Records, Vital Records, and so forth; when we clicked those links, however, we got an error message saying Page Not Found. So, not only did we not get our results, we couldn't even access the wrong ones.

Our ultimate conclusion is that Background Report 360 is no longer doing business. We got the same error message when trying to click the Check Out button, and the copyright date at the bottom of the page was a few ears earlier than the date we visited the site. You'll need to choose another service if you want to run a background check.

Continued from above

Background checks have been a regular part of life for many years, letting people to get a better idea of those individuals they interact with. Colleges and universities search social media profiles and work history before awarding scholarships or even granting admission to applicants. Families looking to adopt or be foster parents are checked to make sure there is no history of abuse or neglect.

Much of this information is also available to you through services offering background checks. Maiden names and aliases, cities of residence, even criminal and legal history are just a few of the types of information people can find when using these services.

You should be aware that, no matter which service you use, the results rendered are only as accurate as the public records databases which they use. The accuracy of this information is one of the factors that differentates the background check providers.

As you decide which background check service best meets your needs, keep in mind the following criteria:

  • Price. What will it cost to access a single report? Is there a free or low-cost trial available? How much does it cost to access unlimited reports for one month?
  • Depth of Information. What kinds of records will you be able to see? Is it information that you could easily find yourself, or will you get access to details that are hard for the average person to find? Does the service also examine social media accounts, or just basic public records?
  • Reputation. Have other customers been able to find what they need while using the service? Does the business have a solid rating with the BBB?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best background check services available today. We hope these reviews help you find what - and who - you're searching for!
