For folks that don’t know I have well over 40 years of experience in the investigative process and during that experience have had to do background investigations on countless individuals. I have been fortunate in that in most cases the government agency I was working for or a private client had the money to cover all the costs. I realize that some folks don’t have the money to spend on doing backgrounds on people they suspect of being frauds (boyfriends/girlfriends/etc.) or people that continually cause them problems for no reason whatsoever.
One place for people on a budget to start is a website known as “Whitepages” this is a public domain that provides public records regarding individuals and is a good place for the novice to start. Most people aren’t aware of how much free background information is available on the internet which you can use to protect yourself.
Here I am providing two examples of some of the information available on “Whitepages”, because I am a very nice guy I have redacted some of the public information even though it was not necessary for me to do so. The very same is true for other public information sites including both federal and local records maintained by government agencies (criminal history, property ownership, business records, and many more). I hope this is helpful if so let me know.
