Product Descriptions & Add-ons

SSN Trace + Address History

Utilizing a database pulled from thousands of sources, this product provides summaries of the applicant’s name, name variations, and previous addresses for further investigation.

7-Year Criminal History

The 7- Year Criminal History will search criminal records in county courts based on the results returned from the SSN Trace. We will research felony and misdemeanor cases reported on an applicant. These searches return results of offenses, charges, file numbers, file dates, disposition and sentences. Our organization has the capability to conduct searches in any county in the United States.

National Criminal Check with County Verification

The National Criminal search is a proprietary database compiled from U.S. court records.  The data is sourced from county courts, statewide criminal databases, as well as sex offender and correctional databases.  To comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) for pre-employment purposes, all background check results must be retrieved from the original source. Therefore, if a criminal record is uncovered through the National Criminal search, AccurateNow is required to perform a follow-up search at the local level. This additional search is included in your package setup.

National Sex Offender Registry

The National Sex Offender Registry search examines the most recent, updated list of registered sex offenders.

Global Watch

Global Watch helps your company comply with the USA Patriot Act, Bank Secrecy Act, Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) Screening, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and many other terrorist and fraud searches by gathering current data from top U.S. and Global official sanction and embargo lists.

Pre-Adverse and Adverse Action Letter Distribution Add-on option ($5.00)

Initiate Pre-Adverse and Adverse Action notices with a click of a button. Automatically send notices directly to the candidate’s email address. Cost includes both Pre-Adverse and Adverse Action notices.

Current County Criminal Search 

Searches the current county corresponding to the address provided for the applicant.

Education Verification Add-on option ($9.95)

The Education Verification confirms the credential earned by the academic institution.  This service includes the highest education level completed and may incur third-party verification fees.

Employment Verification Add-on option ($9.95)

The Employment Verification contacts the past or current employer to verify information provided on an application.  The verification includes one employer located in the United States.  This service may incur third-party verification fees.

Professional License Verification Add-on option ($9.95)

The Professional License Verification contacts the license issuing authority to verify license.

Motor Vehicle Report Add-on option ($9.95) 

The Motor Vehicle Report queries the applicant’s State Department of Motor Vehicles and provides a 3 to 5 year driving history on the applicant. Out of state driving related charges and vehicle-related crimes are frequently included on the report.

Federal Criminal Search Add-on option ($9.95) 

Some offenses are violations of Federal law, as opposed to state or local law, and can only be found through a search of US District Courts. Federal violations generally will not appear in either a county or statewide criminal check. Federal offenses can be very severe involving kidnapping, drug trafficking, interstate transportation of stolen goods, bank robbery, and embezzlement.
