Susan was denied a SafetyPIN due to her score on our Beacon behavioral review. Her answers indicated a high likelihood of pathological lying. Not long after Susan was declined, the app partner Susan had come through reached out to us, concerned that there may be a problem with our system. Apparently, Susan had told them that her “application froze and filled in all the answers for her.” This immediately set off alarms for us, because that is literally and technically impossible.
The system is simply incapable of doing that under any circumstances. However, because we never share any information regarding declined applications with our app partners, we told them we couldn’t go into detail but that we had been in direct contact with Susan. In fact, when Susan received notice that she was declined, she replied, “Just tell me which answers I got wrong.” And it didn’t stop there.
Susan continued to mislead our partner app — telling them that there were bugs in our system holding up her approval. All the while she continued requesting that we allow her to retake the behavioral review. In the end, she wrote to the partner app and withdrew her application with them, saying she couldn’t continue since they chose a screening partner whose technology wasn’t working properly. Again, the system was up and running, and operating perfectly. It was as if we were seeing our test results validated in real time. SafetyPIN and appeal – 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.
