Default Background Check Sites

I spent some time tonight looking as some of the major so-called "background information" sites, to see what was said about me and also my brother-in-law. After just looking at the surface information that I could see without paying, I figured that it definitely would not be worth a penny of my money. There is enough to make them sound legit, but when my brother-in-law shows up with multiply felony convictions, the background check is pretty meaningless. I have been seeing him multiple times a year since July of 1978. No felonies. From looking at the sites, they are blending information on any two individuals who happen to have the same name and are in the same or near area. For me, they have me living in three different states at the same time. If nothing else, it was a worthwhile look.

Note, Truthfinder was the worst of the lot.

Edit Note: I just ran my daughter, and discovered that she is African-American. Hmmm, she sure did not look it today what I saw her, nor yesterday either. And she apparently owns the house, which has a very bizarre net worth.

And to think some people depend on these. As P. T. Barnum said: "There is a sucker born every minute." As a corollary to that, you could add: "and the Internet finds them quite efficiently to separate them from their money."

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
