The SSN Locator report provides a seven-year address history, previous names associated with the SSN, issuance date, and state of issue.

CrimNet includes multi-state sex and violent offenders’ data from 49 states, and U.S. government watch list data. This is a quick and affordable way to check national criminal records before pursuing records from specific local jurisdictions.

Sex Offenders Record Search
Proforma’s sex offender check is conducted through the Department of Justice portal, which offers access to data from each state’s registry. Reported information varies by state and includes the offender’s name, description of the offense, and may also include personal description, photograph, address, place of employment or name of school, and description of the offender’s vehicle and license plate number.

Local Criminal Records Search - 7 Year History
Centered on the jurisdictions where your applicant has resided over the past seven years (as found in SSN Locator) or in places where we have found potential criminal activity on a broad-level search, our experienced research team obtains local criminal records straight from the authoritative source. These records can uncover felony convictions, misdemeanors, bench warrants, and other local-level court actions. Since we never rely on questionable database sources for our local criminal records, we most often send professional researchers directly into the local courts where they personally retrieve criminal records data.

Federal Criminal Records Search - 7 Year History

We typically verify the highest level attained but the verification can be expanded further.

Employment Verification, last 7 years up to 3 employers
Our basic employment verification service provides a confirmation from the applicant’s employer of start date, end date, title, salary and eligibility for rehire.

We also cover social media searches, looking at the individual’s internet identities and reviewing any social media profiles, such as Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, etc.
