We are living in trying times. It’s for that reason that you should be very careful about the new people in your life with whom you choose to surround yourself. That is especially true if you are looking to hire someone like a babysitter or have a new love interest in mind.
It only takes one mistake in judgment to bring turmoil into your life. Instead of taking unnecessary chances, you owe it to yourself to do all you can to find out about people before you allow them to get too close.
In days gone by, your ability to find information was limited. Thanks to the internet and wonderful online resources like Effect Group, you now have the ability to protect yourself with information. We are talking about background information that will give you some kind of idea of who people really are without you having to guess.
How to Investigate Someone Online
When you go to investigate someone, you need to dismiss the notion you are spying on them. In fact, you are simply gathering public information that is available if you know where to look. Where to look is online with investigation software that provides the kind of information you need.
If you are wondering what kind of information you need in order to initiate your background check, you need as much information as you can get. The more information you have at the start will translate to an easier time finding the background information you need.
If you know nothing about the individual you want to investigate, you can always start your search by Googling their names and using free resources like the US Department of Justice’s National Sex Offender Public Website. For criminal history, you might also want to consider checking out the National Center for State Courts, or NCSC. Still, your access to public information will be somewhat limited, but it’s a start.
What you really want is the kind of information that speaks more to who the individual really is and what has transpired in their lives. That information might include:
- Prior and current address
- Home ownership
- Prior and current employment
- Credit and driving information
- Social networking profile (includes email addresses)
- Sex Ottender registry check
- Criminal history that might otherwise be limited or unavailable

What you do with the information will depend on why you want it. Note: If you can, it’s always best to get permission to do a background check from the individual to be investigated. It’s the best way to ensure you don’t step on any legal landmines.
