Freepers help: Best free net resources for personal background checks, marriage info, etc.
tame

Posted on 07/18/2007 9:16:14 PM PDT by tame

Freepers, please help me out on this one. I have a friend who is romantically interested in someone who may not be telling the truth on several matters...whether he's married, has a criminal record, etc.

I know there are many sources out there (i.e., "scams") that charge a fee but give very little info.

I used to know of some terrific websites on which there was a ton of information for free but I can't seem to track them down at the moment.

PLEASE help. I don't want my friend to be duped. Intuition is great. Extra info is even better. Anyone know of some great resources? Please post links.

Thanks! tame.

I appreciate the help. I’ve used intelius before but they charge money and they don’t seem to give quite enough info. Any others you might know of?

Locating Public Records in California

To: tame

If your guy is located in California, you can get quite a bit of information from various public sources.

Some counties provide a search for names at their superior courts and you can see if they’ve been involved in any court cases, be it civil, criminal or family law. The counties where I know this information is to be had is San Bernardino, Riverside, and Orange County. Other counties may also have this info available.

Some county recorders provide a search for names for property transactions. Orange County has this ability, I don’t know about other counties. Clark County, Nevada has a wonderful search for marriages, in case he ever got married in Las Vegas.

However, back to your original question, if you find some dirt on this guy, do you really think your friend is going to listen? Sometimes we just have to make our own mistakes.

okay...the question is which WEBSITES have the best info from these various public resources?

Nevada has a wonderful search for marriages, in case he ever got married in Las Vegas.

People actually go to vegas to get married?!?

if you find some dirt on this guy, do you really think your friend is going to listen? Sometimes we just have to make our own mistakes.

Well, for instance, if I find dirt on a possible murderer...let's just say it's good to know...while trying to alert my friend :o)

Myspace.com

facebook.com

The first, is useful if you have a name and address.

The second two, useful if you know the handle of the user you are looking for.

Myspace and facebook should not be discounted. If the friend or family member there has a link, look it up.

The individual may not realize they have info posted about them on their friends sites.

Beyond that, you may need to use pay sites, but beware, they use the same info you can get for free by searching state, and county records.

If you really need some help, hire a private investigator.

Seriously.

I am also wanting to do a background search and am willing to pay for it. But I’ve read about scam sites.

Anyone know of a good website to search public & criminal records? Probably isolated to the Southeastern U.S.
