Criminal Background Check

The Criminal Background Check is used in insurance investigations to uncover information in a person’s past which sheds light on their claim or discredits information they have provided. It is a crucial tool in the investigation of a person suspected of liability insurance fraud and workers compensation insurance fraud. (If you are looking for background checks in other areas, select Personal Background Checks, Legal Background Investigation, or Business Background Checks Professional Results.)

A thorough criminal background check is not limited to past crimes or criminal activity. It includes verification of personal information such as Social Security number, name confirmation, discovery of aliases or AKA’s, confirmation of date of birth and names of family members. It also includes searches of civil records to see if the claimant has a history of lawsuits or other litigation. The criminal records search for past crimes or fraud convictions is also a key element of the criminal background investigation. We also run a search of past workers compensation filings which are listed with the South Carolina Worker Compensation Commission.

The comprehensive criminal background check involves field undercover work. At this level we obtain more subtle information on the background of the subject, including personal habits, personality, associations, dating/marital status, substance abuse and other in-depth information to give a complete profile of the subject.

The chart below describes the various services we offer in regard to the criminal background check. Note that the last category on the chart describes the Background/ Asset combination.
