How to Do A Private Background Check

Have you ever tried to find more info about someone online? Running a name through Google may give you a few vague details, but it’s nothing compared to the power of an advanced background check. Every search is totally private. The person that you’re looking up won’t be notified that you’ve pulled their report.Traffic offences, arrest records, and forgotten social media profiles don’t always come up on a Google search — especially if you are searching a common name. But one website can tap into the deep web and reveal shocking personal details in one easy-to-read report. It’s a people search engine called TruthFinder.

All you have to do is type in a name. TruthFinder’s advanced technology sifts through millions of public records in minutes. Because TruthFinder search results can reveal a location, age, and known associates, you can immediately narrow down your search to the relevant person — even if they have a very common name.

Even if you don’t know any details about this person, you can play detective until you find what you’re looking for with unlimited searches.

TruthFinder warns members that reports could contain graphic and shocking information. I was pretty curious, so I decided to try it out for myself.

This is an example of some of the related links and situations that you may find in a TruthFinder report

First, I searched for myself. I was totally humiliated to realize that a blog I had created NINE years ago showed up in a report — with embarrassing photos for the whole world to see! I’ve been trying to remove my teenage years from the internet ever since I was old enough to regret them. But TruthFinder found what I tried to hide!

Although it was pretty embarrassing, it was also really handy. Now I can find that blog and delete it! The craziest thing? I tried searching for both my name and my forgotten blog’s name in Google to see if they came up. Google didn’t find anything, but TruthFinder did!

Intrigued, I decided to see what else TruthFinder could dig up. So I searched some of my friends that I always suspected had a “colorful” history. I can’t say I was surprised that one of them had three arrests, but I was pretty shocked that this information was available to anyone with a TruthFinder membership!

It didn’t take long for things to get sinister. Everyone knows that one person who feels a bit “off” — you can’t explain why they give you a bad feeling, but your gut instinct says that they’re trouble. When you get that feeling, you should definitely use TruthFinder.

I searched a friend-of-a-friend who always gave me the heebie-jeebies.

This guy had dozens of criminal records. I actually couldn’t count how many arrests were on his rap sheet. This was no standard high school arrest or unpaid parking ticket.

From assault to child abuse, this guy was seriously bad news. I had no idea before I used TruthFinder. I was shocked to discover what he was capable of. Aside from those explosive revelations, the sheer volume of data on TruthFinder was impressive. It can access known addresses, including my new apartment, which I only moved into six months ago!

When I clicked on my location details, I was blown away to find a list of all of my possible neighbors — addresses included. And yes, curiosity got the better of me. I looked them up, too! Hey, you can never be too careful, right?

I found census data, age demographics, income demographics, population demographics, and even the demographics for top interests in my zipcode! How is this even possible?

As I read through my own background report, I began to realize how amazing this service is. The most popular places in your neighborhood come back on a report. Think about it this way: have you finally scored a hot date with your crush, but you don’t know where to take them? Look them up on TruthFinder. Aside from making sure that they’re not criminally insane, you can use location data to wow them by taking them to the hottest restaurant in their area!

And while you’re on that date, you can casually mention that band they follow on Twitter, too.

Yep, all those social media profiles are included on a TruthFinder report. If you’re currently dating, get searching. That hottie you met in the bar who said they were soooo single? A TruthFinder search might say something different…

The possibilities are endless. And with UNLIMITED searches, you can literally spend an entire evening on this website. I’ll admit — it’s pretty addictive once you start searching!

It also showed me the mugshots and location of all the sex offenders in my area — along with details of their charges. Now I know which faces to avoid at all costs.

I would definitely recommend TruthFinder to my friends and family. Even though I was dismayed to discover some uncomfortable truths, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Anyone can use TruthFinder to reveal the secrets about those around them. If you want to give it a try, click here.

I write for Final Prepper and The Prepper's Daily, covering topics affecting our everyday life. I retired from working for the government because I think I can help more here, at home, than abroad. Happily married and a proud father, I am dedicated to keep them safe. I strongly believe preppers are just common sense people being aware they should be able to handle everyday problems they might face, by themselves, without counting on anyone's help. And after years of being a father, I think preppers want to reach self-sufficiency not because they don't like other people, or don't trust them. It's just that they love their families more. And as I see it, talking from my experience only, and not from a book I read, prepping is an act and proof of love.
