In today’s fast-paced world, the accuracy of background checks is more crucial than ever. Global Data Fusion, headquartered in Lafayette, LA, stands at the forefront of delivering precise and comprehensive criminal background checks. Our mission is to dispel the confusion surrounding consumer report disclaimers and ensure our clients have the most reliable information at their fingertips.

The Challenge of Accuracy in Background Checks:

When you receive a consumer report with a disclaimer about accuracy, it raises valid concerns. The primary challenge lies in the decentralized storage of criminal records across the United States. Unlike a singular, unified database, criminal histories are scattered across various jurisdictions and databases, each with its own update frequency and coverage.

  1. Multi state Databases – A Starting Point: Often the first resource utilized, these databases, also known as “National Criminal Databases,” compile records from a selection of counties, state correctional facilities, courts, and other accessible agencies. The scope and timeliness of these records vary, making them a valuable yet incomplete resource.

  2. Deep Dive into Criminal Records: To ensure a thorough check, it’s imperative to explore district, county/parish, state, and federal level searches. This multi-tier approach is integral to Global Data Fusion’s methodology, enabling us to uncover records that might otherwise be missed in a standard search.

The Importance of Comprehensive Searches:

Conducting searches across all relevant jurisdictions is not just about thoroughness; it’s about understanding the nuances of each area’s record-keeping and legal system. Global Data Fusion prides itself on its ability to navigate this complex landscape, offering clients peace of mind and reliability.

Alias Names and Their Impact:

The complexity of background checks is further compounded by the use of alias names. An individual might have records under a maiden name, a previous married name, or a commonly used nickname. Overlooking these aliases can result in incomplete background checks. Global Data Fusion employs advanced techniques, including Social Trace, to identify and verify all known aliases, ensuring a more comprehensive search.

Dealing with Recent Legal Developments:

One of the most challenging aspects of criminal background checks is accounting for recent arrests or ongoing legal proceedings. These events might not be immediately reflected in standard nationwide databases, leading to gaps in reporting. Our approach is to include district and county/parish-level searches to capture the most current information, closing the gap left by broader database searches.
