A couple of years ago a door to door salesman was charged with raping and attempting to murder one of his clients. The company that hired him performed a standard background check on the young man that didn’t reveal any issues in his past, but after a more in-depth investigation, they determined that the young man had several run ins with the law. You may be surprised at how easily a background check could be misinterpreted, and there is a great deal of information that can get left out. You should never trust a background check alone, and there are many reasons why:

  1. Background checks can lull you into a false sense of security. Most people that order a background check think that it contains everything they need to know, but they often won’t tell you the entire story. This is especially true in cases when you order a cheaper background check.
  2. Most people don’t know how to read the red flags in a background check. Some things are easy to spot, while other things can easily be lost in the shuffle. It is way too easy to miss things completely or misinterpret the data.
  3. Lots of people think that they can get everything they need from one simple background check, but that is simply untrue. A thorough background investigation involves a lot more than just plugging a name into a database.
