If you've used a site, please let me know what kind of results you've gotten. Was it easy to do, easy to understand, that kind of thing?.... Thks UPDATE:: Serious answers only PLZ!

We have to do extensive background checks in our business. Not only are there no free ones I know of, but several of the ones you pay for do nothing more than run a search engine through public phone books. So a "clean record" can really mean they did a crap job of searching. And some of the pay sites will give you limited information, and then want to charge you more for the total results. Unlike a private investigator or real security firm, those sites aren't regulated at all. They can promise whatever they want and deliver very little and you have no legal recourse. <br />
<br />
If you're serious about it, talk to a private investigator and ask what he'd charge for a basic background check on someone. At least then you'll get something for your money.

Thank you. I think I'll do that. Appreciate the serious &amp; informative answer.

you've got no credit card or money? and you're this eager? I understand this was 10 months ago that you asked but how important is it if you're not willing to use a credit card and put a few bucks down for an online background check...<br />
<br />
just a heads up, if you've got a criminal record or any civil charges, judgments, etc employers will be able to find this out.<br />
<br />
there are many websites which do this, one of the most popular is Been Verified. Here, I document my experience with been verified:<br />

<br />
according to their terms of service (and many other commercialized data broker websites) this site cannot be used as a way to determine eligibility for employment, housing, or anything like that.<br />
<br />
but sites like Been Verified are often cheaper than the more professional companies geared for employment screening and specifically, Been Verified offers a free 7 day trial.

There isn’t a site that does free background checks, however a pretty through DIY background check can be done on someone for little to no money. I have a background in investigations and risk mitigation and I was thinking of writing an e-book that explained step-by-step how to do a background check on someone yourself. It would be a how to and explain the limitations. I would love to know if anyone would be interested in something like that such as (those hiring a Nanny, cleaning lady, daycare provider, or just a small business hiring employees).
