Investigative Background Check Software - Why Would You Need It?

'Googling someone' is what everybody heard about and most likely have done at least once in their lives. You look-up an old friend, a nanny, your sons soccer coach, or just check out what other people might know about you. Desktop investigations using search engines have become kind of commonplace thing. The Wall Street Journal claimes more than half of all Web-based searches are hosted by Google. And that must be true.

However, you go to Google and suddenly discover that there seems to be a whole industry out there offering you help in "running your own quick online background check on virtually anyone". Do they compete or are they just hunting for novices trying to sell them the information on how to search for someone in the same Google? Neither the first, nor second.

While locating basic information on someone in Google is not a problem, going beyond the usual seems to get a bit more tricky. And that's what Web Detective is all about. Though the information in question must be readily available somewhere to anyone who might care to search for it online, the Web Detective makes it SIMPLE.

The REAL VALUE of this service is that they link you directly to the appropriate investigative resources. You could spend lots of time googling down investigative resources and databases and then... just waste a lot of money only to discover you ultimately came across a trivial rip-off. With Web Detective you are already assured that you'll only be dealing with reputable companies.

'We have been weeding these (links) out for 10 years and know who the good companies are. In addition, we provide how-to help and investigative tips that are almost impossible to find on any other service. Also, we keep our resources updated and look into all the latest resources to see what we can add - both free and fee-based. Anyone can look up many resources in Google, or another search engine, but knowing which ones are truly valuable and which ones are rip-offs' is where Web Detective is VERY VALUABLE for amateurs and professionals alike", said in 2002 Phil Mason, who operated Web Detective at the time.

In summer 2002 the Web Detective changed its ownership. It was purchaised by the Intrigue Learning Services Inc., and they started implementing some very solid improvements to their customer support service, which is totally free and unlimited for life for the whole Web Detective's rapidly growing 300 000+ community. Opinions differ as to tracing people being ethical and the right thing to do or not. Many people resort to it simply as another precaution among the many we should take.

Nowadays one can never be too careful. It's not stalking, it's just being prudent. Why not use Web Detective to find out more about the people before choosing to deal with them? Anyway, you should be aware that certain local or federal restrictions do apply for looking into, or permissible uses of the people's personal or professional history information, even if you go to the Internet but occasionally, say, wondering what's known for your potential tenant or caregiver. You have to make sure you comply with them.
