Don't Settle for Less with a Free Background Check

We completely understand the allure of performing a free background check on someone. Why pay for something if you can get it for free, right? The problem with skimping in this area is that you are likely using the information to protect yourself, your family or your property. You need to be assured that you receive the most accurate information available. By utilizing a free service, there is no guarantee you will receive the best data. Remember the old saying, you get what you pay for.

Why We Charge

So why do we charge for our services? We pay for the best data available. We pay developers to parse the data. We pay systems engineers to provide an online environment like no other to ensure you can easily access this information at any time. In order to build comprehensive people and phone databases that are comprised of the most accurate data available, we charge a nominal fee to perform a background check.

Other services that claim to offer background checks for free often bog users down with advertisements or sponsored content in order to bring in revenue. Furthermore, they might throw the word free around, then you find out that you are on a trial basis and will have to pay for the information you really want. Rest assured that we are fully committed to offering immediate, accurate results at a fair price.

What Makes Us the Best?

When you choose to search public records using a reliable service such as ours, you can rest assured you will receive the most accurate, up-to-date information available because our databases are updated daily. You will never have to wait too long when you perform a search. The results are almost instant! The same cannot be said for that site you found that promises to offer a free background check. You also need to be on the lookout for scam companies that promise great results for a small fee but don't provide anything of value. No charge doesn't mean no hassle!

Our Guarantee

With any public record database, mistakes can occur for different reasons. If you encounter erroneous data in your background check report from CheckThem, we encourage you to inform us immediately. We will conduct a second background check for free so you can rest assured that you are getting your money's worth. All of CheckThem's services are in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) guidelines which promotes accuracy and fairness.

Why Free Might End up Costing You

You may have heard that you can get a free government background check rather than pay for one using a service such as CheckThem.com. It's true, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) gives you the right to ask for records from any federal agency. That said, it is easier said than done and there is no guarantee that you will receive the information you are seeking.

Furthermore, the request for information might be free, but agencies are still able to charge you for their services including the time it takes to search and duplicate the records. In short, you could find yourself paying for useless data and ending up right where you started!

Additionally, the FOIA doesn't apply to local agencies (just federal ones) and every jurisdiction has established their own rules about which records can be made public or not. These inconsistencies can cause massive headaches for citizens trying to access local public data. Also, you may be subject to processing fees when requesting information from public courthouses, etc. As you can see, skimping on a background check could actually cost you quite a bit of time and money!

Can I Perform an Employer Background Check Using CheckThem?

We strive to give consumers quick, easy and affordable access to public records so they can protect themselves, loved ones and property. It is important to know the laws and regulations such as the Fair Credit and Reporting Act (FCRA) that dictate how you can use the data and information CheckThem provides. We are unable to offer pre-employment background checks (as well as background checks on current employees or really any background checks used for employment matters such as job offers). This also extends to tenant screening or background checks for credit-related matters.

Our Terms of Service

Per our terms of service, we do not provide consumer reports and we are not a consumer reporting agency. This means you cannot use this service or any of the information provided to make decisions about consumer credit, employers, insurance, education, housing, benefits, tenant screening or any other purpose that would require FCRA compliance.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently provided clearer guidelines as to how consumer reports are to be treated. There are specific companies that offer FCRA compliant background checks, so do some research to ensure you find a reliable source that operates within the law. Consumer Reporting Agencies such as TransUnion, Equifax and Experian are a good place to look for credit reports. If you are looking to perform a pre-employment background check, or want to perform a background check on an employee, you may want to consider a service such as GoodHire.

The Right Ways to Use Our Service

CheckThem is committed to operating within the law, so we reserve the right to terminate (and/or report) any user account that is found using the information provided on this website in an unlawful manner. So now that we addressed the ways you don't use our service, here are some of the ways you do:

Additionally, you can use our service to update your address book, learn more about distant relatives, perform a Reverse Phone Lookup to see who called you, get to know your neighbors, research a neighborhood before buying or renting... There are countless ways we can help you by providing quick, accurate background checks.

How Can I Perform a Criminal Background Check?

You may have heard the statistic that one in every five Americans is the victim of a crime each year. In fact, as many Americans have criminal records as college degrees, according to a Department of Justice survey in 2012. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) collects these records and has established a database called the Interstate Identification Index (III) in order to ensure criminal histories are easily accessible to every law enforcement agency in the country.

As a citizen, you are able to find out information on people's criminal histories as well. In order to protect yourself and your family, it is vital that you have a resource you can go to when you want to check someone's history.

We work hard to offer the best criminal background checks available so you can get the complete story on someone. Rather than visiting a country clerk in person to request such records, you can perform a criminal background check using our service and get the information you are looking for quickly and confidentially.

Avoid the waiting period and fees associated with requesting information through a municipal website. Some localities even require you to fill out a form and submit it through the mail, which takes a significant amount of time to get the details you are looking for.

There are three types of records that typically fall under the category of criminal records, but each of them are distinct from each other:

We make it easy to find the information contained within each of these records. Additionally, we provide access to an extensive Sex Offender Registry so you can stay safe and protect your loved ones. When performing a search, you will find information pertaining to felonies, infractions, misdemeanors, police arrests, driving under the influence (DUIs), warrants and other criminal convictions. We provide results for each state within America, so you can rest assured you will find what you are looking for.

The National Crime Information Center (NCIC) was established by the FBI as a central database for storing crime-related data. It was established in 1967 under J. Edgar Hoover as a way of enhancing communications among various law enforcement branches. By the end of 2015, the NCIC grew to include 12 million active records in 21 files.

Another FBI system is the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) which was established as a means of saving lives by ensuring people with certain criminal records are unable to buy or transfer firearms. This check comes into play oftentimes when someone is looking to buy a gun.

Unfortunately, the information contained within these two databases is not available to the public. This is where a resource such as ours comes into play. Our Deep Search scans state, federal and county databases to get you the information you are looking for instantly.

Curious about your own history and what is available for the public to see? If you have had a run-in with the law in the past, it might be a good idea to perform a criminal background check on yourself to see what information is public. This way you can work to clear up any erroneous information. It is important to note that our records database is continually being updated with the latest and most accurate information and while every effort is made to ensure you receive the most accurate information, some data may be inaccurate or incomplete. Furthermore, certain states and jurisdictions have specific laws concerning criminal records, so it's important to understand them before accessing them.

Is CheckThem a Web App?

When you are looking to find the most current, up-to-date public record information available, you can rely on us to deliver. CheckThem is a web app that you don't have to download and can use within your preferred browser to perform background checks. A web application simply describes the user interface (or client) that runs in a web browser. If you check your e-mail on using a web browser, you are essentially relying on a web app. The same applies to using instant messaging services and wikis within a browser.

A Background Check Web App You Can Trust

Web applications offer similar functionality to what you would find in a desktop software application, but you don't have to download or install anything. It is the most convenient way to find the information you are looking for. You will never have to leave your house or visit a court. Think of all the time you will save!

Think twice before using another service that requires you to download anything in order to perform a background check. Also, we have optimized the experience to ensure that our service works well on mobile devices as well, so you can enjoy the benefit of using CheckThem wherever you are, thanks to superior responsive web design. You will get results online, instantly.

When Does a Background Check Expire?

You may be wondering how accurate the information you receive is and how long it is good for. We are constantly updating our database with the latest, freshest information available. We scan billions of public records to ensure you get the best data with every search. As public data is constantly changing, it is impossible to guarantee a background check you perform on this site will not expire. That said, we work hard to ensure satisfaction and encourage you to contact us if you are unhappy at any time.
