Ought You to Consider Doing a Background Check?

As little as forty years ago Australians generally grew up in close-knit communities where most folk knew each other, and there were few secrets. Whether you think this was a good idea or not we’ll leave you to decide. Nevertheless there was a great deal of information available to help with lifestyle decisions such as going into business or choosing a spouse, so background checks were hardly thought of.


The Informal Society We Live In Now

These days the situation is different owing to the move away from rural areas towards the cities. Extended families are largely gone and most neighbours do not even know each other’s names. If a boy and girl fancy each other enough to want to set up home together, background checks through trusted friends just don’t exist, and they largely have to go on instinct. If they hook up with a bad one, things could end up a disaster.

Choosing business or investment partners can be just as risky. These deals often start as loose arrangements without any background checks at all, then gradually formalise. This lack of research up front often cloaks incompatible value systems. We are working with two clients who may have lost everything after they fell out with the associates they once trusted.

It’s amazing how many folk trust the people they meet on social media just because they have a pretty photo. They may have lots of ‘likes’ but these are hardly valid background checks. Good feedback on eBay is not necessarily sufficient reason to trust a vendor with your money. There has to be a better way to sass people out.

The QLD Covert Investigations Solution

The finest way to satisfy yourself about a person’s bona-fides is to get to the bottom of the facts. The electronic age that permeates every aspect of our living results in a vast amount of data stored away on servers. If you know where to look - and have the time to navigate through a spaghetti junction – then there are valuable clues in credit records and on court rolls that serve as the basis of the background checks we do.

Although this is not rocket science, it does require an enquiring mind with a liberal dose of patience. We have a specialist team well versed in shortcuts that save considerable time. If you are getting closer to a person (or find a relationship deteriorating) you can get advice on background checks around the clock by dialling 1300 553 788. We won’t charge you for the initial consultation.
