The Social Security trace is a crucial component of criminal history research and is used to determine a candidate’s previous residence(s), confirm date of birth, and any other names or aliases associated with the SSN for the past 7 years. These are all key factors in determining court jurisdictions that should be researched for criminal records.

The criminal conviction search includes City-County-State Public Record searches for past convictions.

As a CRA, ScreenThem® is connected directly with the federal court system to extract civil and criminal records of applicants when requested by employers.

ScreenThem® has access to one of the largest national US criminal records databases available. This search contains over 140 million records from 46 different states and acts as a supplement to our criminal and statewide searches.

This exhaustive report screens the names and descriptor information of people identified as posing a threat to the interests and security of the United States. This screen also runs against a database of known narcotics traffickers, terrorists, and businesses and organizations supporting threatening activities.

Our network of international researchers allows us to get verifications of Employment, Education and Criminal searches in 250+ countries.

DISCOVERY makes a search of the name and DOB against a database made up of criminal records secured from many states, counties, and departments of correction and violent and sex offender registers of all states, DC, Guam & Puerto Rico, as well as US and foreign government excluded persons and watch lists.

DRIVING RECORDS are essential if the applicant will drive for the employer or in the course of employment. DOT and some states require a special form.

Previous employment for the past 7 to 10 years is verified according to dates of employment, position, salaries (when available) and eligibility for rehire.

Our trained staff of professional researchers will conduct telephone interviews to obtain the information you request from personal & professional references.

An Education verification confirms schools attended, dates of attendance and degrees or certificates awarded that are claimed by your applicant.

Licenses and Certifications are verified directly with the issuing or accrediting organization.

A consumer credit report typically contains four types of information;

  • First, it gives identifying data, such as name, Social Security Number, and past addresses. It corroborates past employment, identity and residency.
  • It shows how persons pay their debts. It also shows how much credit a person has been given, how much they currently owe, and whether debts have been paid late or sent to collection.
  • It will indicate who has requested a credit report.
  • It will report public records such as court judgments, liens and bankruptcies.
