This is a case we often talk about in our offices. Bill applied for a SafetyPIN in mid-June. From the beginning, there was something about his application and information that concerned us, but we couldn’t put our finger on it at first. It certainly didn’t help that he called customer service almost every day to ask about the status of his SafetyPIN. That made us especially suspicious.
After digging deeper, we discovered that he had two old, but still pending charges for sexual assault of two different minors, ages 13 and 16. His court date was scheduled for July 1! We believe that Bill was trying to get approved for a SafetyPIN before he faced a conviction.
We declined his application and he appealed. When we told him what we saw pending on his record, he never replied. The scariest part? He was trying to join one of our babysitting partners. What’s worse is that because of the unique circumstances – the charges were more than 7 years old, he was charged outside of his county of residence, and the charges hadn’t been decided yet… Many other background check methods would have completely missed – or had to ignore – what we uncovered! SafetyPIN and appeal – denied

We confirmed her identity and her SSN. We could see she had no criminal record, but there was something in her profile that looked, well, suspicious. When we dug a little deeper we realized
