Emily received a score on our Beacon behavioral review that was 40% higher than our maximum threshold for appeal. However, we noticed an interesting pattern in her results. In some cases, this pattern could indicate that the person had experienced an abusive relationship — and was trying to prevent being victimized again. So rather than deny her appeal outright, we had an expert review it. Since this was a unique set of circumstances, a member of our executive team reached out to Emily directly. We let her know what was happening, and that we were trying to help her – so the process may take a little longer than usual.
However, a forensic psychologist determined that her specific responses— before and during the appeal—indicated that Emily did not believe the rules should apply to her, and that she approached life with a self-centered mindset.
These may seem like minor faults, but they are traits that commonly lead to someone failing to meet their commitments, exhibiting controlling behaviors, and doing whatever is necessary to get what they want. So Emily’s appeal was denied. Now, despite the personal one-on-one attention Emily received from our executive team and experts, she reported to the app she applied through that she “couldn’t get any help” from us — and that she even sent us proof that she’s “an amazing person.” Even more troubling? Emily tried to apply again using a different email address. A babysitting app background check would never catch this behavior pattern – leaving children and families vulnerable. Appeal and reapplication – denied

Most background checks only screen the “National Criminal Database,” which excludes 22 states completely, and leaves out a LOT of counties across 12 other states. Better background checks will screen down to the county someone lives in, and, in some cases, the counties they’ve lived in for the past 7 years. But we know criminals don’t stop at the county line – so neither do we.
Forty-year-old Phoebe was applying to be a house-sitter. Our review showed she’d been arrested for shoplifting when she was 33. That’s a little too old to write-off as a youthful indiscretion. When our experts asked Phoebe for more details, her answers became defensive and she refused to explain any circumstances around her arrest. Most background checks would overlook a single
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.
