    I need to do a background check on someones past credit, marriage, criminal, lien, type history. Does anyone have any recommendations on how I should do this? Thanks for any advice.

    JF,credit checks are easy. Many companies offer credit histoies for a small fee. Do you have a local credit bureau in your town. Thats who I use on anyone I extend credit to. Criminal historys in most places are public record. Call clerk and masters office in county of concern. Hope this helps.

    Do a search on google.com

    There are bunches of affordable online services.

    You could also go to your local large retail store with a loss prevention department (Sears, Nordstroms, etc) and slip one of the agents some cash to run a bg check for you. Might be cheaper and faster than an online service. I used to be an agent, and had access to some good info (although I never did any "freelancing"). So, might be worth a shot if the online places want too much money for too little info. It's not illegal, either, since what they would be pulling up is public record; just slightly questionable as they would be using company materials for this.

    I can do this for you very inexpensively, we do it routinely, around $30 if I'm remembering correctly, not at work right now, there are some safegaurds to take to protect yourself legally when you do this, very serious stuff, I would be happy to advise you..no charge..email me.

    I do them all the time on potential tenants.

    Scary amount of info can be had with simply full name and current address. Mix in Social Insurance Number, and EVERYTHING is there, scary.

    To do any search in Ontario (legally) full written consent of the potential is required, signed.
    Also flagged on the potential's overall credit report and can be traced back from that route, doing one here without consent is trouble in the henhouse.
    Always interesting when told that $800 a month is no problem, working out monthly payments from the report and there is nothing near that left, funny stuff.......uhhhh next.
