How Did Inaccurate Information Get in My Background Report?
USA background Checks report data comes from publicly available information. Because public records are not immune to errors, it’s possible that inaccurate records were unknowingly included in your report. Some common reasons for inaccurate information showing up in a background report include:
- Identity theft
- Typos made by the public agency when they created a record
- Records that were not updated by the public agency
- Mix-ups resulting from having a common name
