International background checks are professional investigations conducted by a background check or private investigation company with field offices or field investigators in the foreign country or countries involved in your case. The purpose is to minimize risk in foreign hiring, international business and relationships.

Real international background check investigations can involve criminal and court records, asset searches, education and employment, passport and visa verification, travel records, civil and public records, marriage history, neighbor testimony, businesses, etc. Searching criminal records is not a background check, but only a part of the investigation. Many companies claim to offer background checks but only search generic databases. In fact, searching databases is not an option in many developing countries. An investigator on the ground accessing local records, speaking the same language, and conducting real investigation is the only way. Any website claiming otherwise is a scam. Fortunately, there are some options available. Companies such as Kroll and Wymoo® International have well established reputations and do offer the service. If there is only one foreign country involved, consumers also have the option of contacting a private investigator in that country directly, although this can be a higher risk option due to language and cultural barriers.

Always verify the company has field investigators, offices or agents in the country where you need the investigation. Making phone calls or searching the internet from abroad is not an investigation, and is not worth a dime. A real background check is a professional investigation; skilled investigators are required.

What is a dating background check?

Dating background checks are background check investigations that specialize in verifying a partner or companion in a romantic relationship. These investigations are normally carried out by a trained private investigator, and provide valuable evidence for both individuals involved in real world dating and online dating. The objective is to verify that the person is who he or she claims to be, and to mitigate your risk in new relationships. With the success of online dating and social networking sites, millions of people around the world now find romance via the internet. Such relationships often involve a person in a different state or even a different country, and are susceptible to dating fraud and romance scams. Even when couples meet in person, a dating background check is an investigation and important tool that can verify the subject's background, education, employment, identity, documents, address, check criminal and marriage records, and more. A real dating background check is an actual investigation conducted by an experienced private investigator, not a database or internet search. Consumers typically pay $400 or more for the service, depending on the need for evidence, country or countries involved, and specific information to be obtained or verified. Checking criminal and public records alone is not an investigation, but is usually included in the service. Cases can take about 5 to 7 days to complete in most cases. Consumers should be skeptical of websites claiming to offer "investigations" for much less, or "instant background checks" which are database searches only.

Can a home owners association run a background check on anyone and can the owner see it?

It may not be legal for an association to be in the business of running background checks -- your association counsel can advise you. When an owner runs a background -- and financial check -- on a prospective tenant, as any landlord would do, the owner can produce a receipt as proof to the association that a background check was completed. There is no reason for the association to be privy to the contents of such a check. Common interest communities called co-ops, however, are a totally different form of real estate and these boards reserve the right to inspect any prospective buyer's background and financial situation.
