SSN Verification - This search is very successful in determining possible fraudulent use of a Social Security number and to find locations an applicant has resided that were not reported on an application. This search returns information reported to a major credit bureau. Information returned may include name and address of individuals who have used the Social Security number to apply for credit. Name variations are usually due to one of three situations: the Social Security number may have been used by a spouse or other family member; it may have been used fraudulently by one or more of the individuals named in the report; or name variations may be the result of a data entry error by the credit bureau or the credit grantor.

National Sex Offender - The National Sex Offender Registry Search contains information from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Each individual state's statutes drive what level of sex offender registry information is made available to the public. There are restrictions of use of sex offender registration information for employment purposes in California & Massachusetts, and legal approval is required.

National Criminal PLUS - The NCRF Plus searches multiple names against the database and uses data from our InstantID product (LN proprietary database that includes credit header information and other public record sources) to develop the additional names to be searched. The given name and the developed names will be searched against the database. Additional search is performed using the subject’s provided DOB and developed names associated with the subject’s SSN such as maiden names, nicknames or misspelled names.

County Criminal / Felony and Misdemeanor - This search checks for all felonies filed at the main courthouse (county seat) and for misdemeanor information available at the lower-level court filed at city location provided. Infractions and traffic violations are not included. The seriousness of the charge determines in which court a criminal action is filed. Examples of felony cases include grand theft, rape and murder. Examples of misdemeanor cases include trespassing, driving under the influence (DUI), possession of a controlled substance and petty theft. Response may include defendant, case number, file date, charges and disposition or current status.
