Investigating Someone – Cheap and Easy

It’s alarming to know how easy it is to investigate someone. All anyone needs to find out more than you want them to know about you is $10/year and their name. With just those two little things you can find out way too much information about anybody and everyone you care to investigate.

Many people in domestic “situations” come looking for various solutions as to how to find out this or that information about a person they want to investigate. I don’t really have a problem with that but it did get a little old telling this person to do it one way, and that person to do it another way so I took a few minutes to break down what I feel are the best and or most common needs of people in need of information about someone else.

There are three groups of people that typically are being investigated: either you are doing a credit check on someone (with consent), an executive background check (with consent), and employment background check (with consent), or a public records background check on someone (without consent). The first three (with consent) types of investigation are typically done on a “one-off” basis and while they aren’t all that expensive, they aren’t always cheap. The last type of background check is very inexpensive but doesn’t comply with federal financial investigation laws and rules. If you’re not bound by FCRA rules, the non-compliant background check is definitely the way to go.

Without further adieu, here’s a breakdown of the available compliant and non-compliant types of searches based on what you may needs may be. Each of these sites has further specific guidance on where your best bets are to find the types and kinds of information you are looking for on someone.
