The best way to really know someone you just met is to conduct a background check. Offensive or not, it is the only way to be sure that you are not dealing with a convicted felon that has the potential to inflict violence on you or your family. If someone were to do a background check on you, Im sure it would not be pleasant, especially if you have a criminal history that you are trying to forget. But ultimately it wont matter, because he has the right to know such information, the same as you.
In the old days, doing background checks was a task best left to professionals and law enforcement officers. It was not exactly a job for a civilian, considering the resources that we had then and the magnitude of the task itself. But with the advent of the Internet, online public police records can now be accessed by virtually any member of the public. Can you imagine going through huge file cabinets just to look for a single police record? It can be quite overwhelming just to think about it.
Today, all you need to do a background check is find the right website that will serve as a reliable source for information. But it may not be as easy as it sounds, since there are a lot of websites that promise to provide comprehensive public police records, but not all of them are reliable, or safe for that matter. You must realize that not all websites that offer this kind of service can provide you with the information that you require.
In fact, you may find several websites that offer free access to public criminal records. But what they fail to mention is that the details contained in those records are not as comprehensive as you would want it to be. Have you ever heard of the saying, You get what you pay for? Well, in this case, you pay nothing, you get nothing. So dont be fooled with those bold letters that says Free, which you typically find in such websites. Oh!…
