Employment Screening People Search Sample Report

When should I use a People search?

You should use a people search as your primary search for skip tracing or verification. Over 100 data sources are searched at a fraction of the cost of similar products. A Trace Detail report can be requested from this search to give an even greater detail of verified and non-verified addresses, associates, neighbors, neighborhood and relatives.

How do I search effectively?

  1. Use only a social security number to get the best results
  2. Try last name, first name and state as a secondary search for additional results
  3. Enter additional information like date of birth, address, city and/or zip when too many results are returned
  4. Only enter a middle initial as a last resort to narrow search results
  5. Additional matches can be returned if you enter a wildcard or range for street number(e.g, 24*, 2400:2600)
  6. When a match is found, an additional address search can be requested
  7. When a match is found, request a Trace Detail report to get additional information
  8. If a bankruptcy indicator is returned, a Bankruptcy Search may also be requested

What sources are searched?

  • Equifax's Consumer Credit Database
  • Trans Union's Consumer Credit Database
  • Telephone Regional Bell Operating Companies(RBOC) database
  • State and City Public Records

How else can this product be used?
