They offer background searcher to "protect your family" and check out professionals before using there services. The problem is the information is not only incomplete but also incorrect. If you are trying to protect yourself or your family a criminal history is the most important information. When searching BeenVerified.com I found that the criminal history was lacking a very important component, THE PERSON'S CRIMINAL HISTORY. I searched several people who I knew for a fact had criminal history's and according to BeenVerified.com they had no criminal history. On one person they listed there criminal history under the tab "Unlikely Matches". After looking over the "unlikely match" which I know 100% to be on this persons criminal record I found many missing criminal offenses which are public record easily searched for on the internet for free. Why pay for incorrect and incomplete information when you can get correct and complete information for free.
When I searched myself I said I was related to a person I have never heard of. This person is not one of my relative, but upon looking over the persons profile I found they had lived in the same house I did (at some point other then when I lived there). The conclusion I have come to is that they were listed as a relative because we both had the same address at some point. I also found this same occurrence when I searched some of my family members names. Relatives listed as their relatives were not really their relatives and I am 100% sure of this. These incorrect relatives did at some point live at the same address as my family member.
I also found incorrect addresses (past and present)on profiles for my family members and friends.
