VERISPY

Verispy has been in business for more than 15 years and, according to the site, has helped nearly 8 million users since the company's start.

What does Verispy include with a background check? Assuming the information is available/located, the report gives the following:

  • Full Name
  • Age/DOB
  • Phone Numbers
  • Current Address
  • Arrest/Warrants
  • Sex Offenses
  • Mugshots
  • Criminal Records
  • Marriage/Divorce Records
  • Liens/Judgments
  • Bankruptcies
  • Property Ownership
  • Birth/Death Records
  • Lawsuits

How did they perform on our background check? While Verispy did come up with a long list of people with our requested name in our state, it was impossible to tell if they had actually located our records. With some services, you're able to see associated addresses for the individual you're investigating; unfortunately, there was nothing in the records Verispy came up with to tell us for sure that they'd found our specific information - only the right name, age and state but nothing else to confirm it was a match. We would have to pay to access the report(s) to figure out which one was ours.

Paying for a one-week subscription ($24.95) or one-month plan ($29.95) would give us unlimited access to reports, so we could find the one that we were requesting - but that price is considerably higher than other services we reviewed.

We also found that Verispy had a "B+" grade with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our review; many customers report subscribing only to be told that there are "no results" for the names they've searched, and that getting the subscription cancelled can be difficult.

We recommend that you choose one of the higher-ranked background check services in our review, because Verispy doesn't seem to deliver on their promise to help you "investigate people".

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.

The Popularity of Background Checks

Daters are doing it. Neighbors are doing it. Even someone you know may be doing it.

So what is the "it" we're referring to here? Background checks.

With the top three online dating websites making background checks a requirement for using their service, the popularity of conducting such searches continues to grow. Even the government is considering tighter background checks for the purchase of firearms as part of a broader package on gun safety.

Not even social media is exempt from the long-reaching arm of the background check. While a person can make their social media accounts private, and be cautious of what they post about themselves, what they cannot control is what other people post about them. Embarrassing photos from last summer's pool party - where you were holding a beer in each hand as you belly-flopped into the pool - easily can surface on someone else's website or social media account. So even if you think you're being discreet, there is always the chance that someone else is not.

We already know that conducting background checks is becoming popular. But what kind of information frequently is sought out during a background check?

  • Basic Background Check. These kinds of background checks are comprehensive and thorough, revealing such information as a person's date of birth, any marriages/divorces and even if they've ever claimed bankruptcy. It also can include a criminal history, which details any criminal convictions.
  • Criminal Background Check. Sometimes you're not interested in learning about every place someone has lived in their lifetime - or whether they've been married four times in 15 years. Sometimes, the only information that is being sought is a criminal conviction history, which can be obtained through a criminal background check. These checks can be conducted through a number of third-party agencies, which charge from $15 to $40 for their services. Any criminal convictions, including jail time served, will be included in the report.

It's important to understand that sometimes background checks contain inaccurate and misleading information. This can be incredibly frustrating for someone who may be confused with another person of a similar name who has committed a crime. Just as ordering an annual credit report to check for errors is a good idea; it is advisable to occasionally conduct a background check on yourself for the same purposes.
