4 Ways a Background Check Can Get You Out of Trouble

Access to public records has become much more simple thanks to SpyFly. Now you can be your own personal “spy” and perform background checks. SpyFly is a website that aggregates billions of public records into a single interface to guarantee the most recent, up-to-date information available. It is important to protect yourself and your family from the potential harms that are out there.

Number 1: Identity Theft

Unfortunately, identity theft has escalated over the past decade. The Javelin Strategy Research estimates that “12.6 million Americans were victims of identity theft in 2012.” Thieves seek to get their hands on credit, debit card, and Social Security numbers. Identity theft has even become so complex that identity information is now being sold on the black market. There are “hundreds of Internet relay chat rooms where personal information is bought, sold, traded and bartered,” states Joe Ross, President and founder of CSID.

“Be aware of these risks and always take a proactive approach to defend against evolving trends in personal data theft.”

Verify that your identity has remained untouched. Perform a personal background check with SpyFly and make sure everything in your name is something you recognize and verified yourself.

Number 2: Purchases via Online Resources

Have you ever made a purchase on Craigslist? Craigslist is a wonderful advertisements website, yet sometimes hosts unwanted visitors. There are instances (more common that you would think) where fraud can occur.

If you are thinking of exchanging online and receiving a product, do a background check to protect yourself. Public records reveal address history and criminal records that will help you make the right decision.

Number 3: Online Dating

The amount of users on dating sites has increased over the years. According to Pew Research, one in ten Americans have used an online dating site at least once in their lifetime. Ensure your safety from possible imposters, married individuals, or even criminals.

It is easier than you think to lie on a profile. With SpyFly, type in a name, and/ or location and in seconds you’ll have a full background report before your eyes.

Number 4: Reconnect with People from the Past

Although the past three examples may have been frightening to read, SpyFly can also be the key to solving long lost relationships! Are you adopted? Did you move when you were younger and leave behind a past life?

Now you can reconnect with individuals you never thought you could before. If you’ve always wondered and the thought has constantly been lingering, do it. Find out for yourself and get in touch with loved ones from the past…or verify details for loved ones that may be in your future.
