    Question Is an Internet Background Check Reliable

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Maryland

    Is internet background check reliable ?
    ========================================

    Thanks for your replies to my thread.

    I did find many background check provider in google search with First/last name, phone number based searches.

    It shows many info like address, felony records, criminal records etc.

    Are these offer reliable ?

    I know cops can locate people for criminal offenses, but they are not able help on civil issues.

    I did see court shows on TV, where folks find illusive person and bring to court.

    How are they doing it?


    Thanks for sharing.

    Personally, I wouldn't trust any of those sites.

    But if you have to pick any I suggest googling the name of the site and include the word "review" or "complaint."

    You'll get an idea whether they are any good or not.

    Or, if the price is cheap enough, run a check on yourself and see if what comes up is accurate.

    Are you considering using one of those sites? If so, why?

    Like everything else in life, some are and some aren't.

    A mobile mechanic repaired my car and in the process, he messed up my car. I have to take my car to another person to fix his unfinished business.

    I am not able to find him on the address he shared with me.

    I am looking to tack him down .

    Thanks for your guidance.

    Also, you get what you pay for (or not). If someone is offering "free" anything, the first question you ask is why? Maintaining a database of accurate up-to-date information cost money. Lots of money. If someone is going through the huge expense and trouble of doing this, why would they put said information on the free internet. I can see the government doing so if they have their own reason. Like the IRS putting a reasonably accurate list of IRS recognized charities on line. But what is some private parties reason for doing so? Quo Bono?
