Background Check Gave No Results? Here’s How to Find the Info You Need

Find the Info

Are you trying to find more information about a person in your life and haven’t found the results you want through a background check? This situation is more common than you’d think, but there are other ways you can play the sleuth by using the information you do have about them.

Infotracer.com offers several options to search for information about a person, and they are all anonymous – so the person won’t even know you’re trying to get more details about their history.

Searching an Address

If you know the person’s address, you can conduct a reverse search using this information and discover who lives there or owns the property quite easily. All you have to do is input the street address and apartment or unit number, city and state.

This type of search is ideal when you’re receiving packages from an address you don’t recognize right away, or if you have a friend or neighbor you want to research. There may be some shady things in their past that are connected with a criminal history, and this info is also attached to their address.

Searching a Phone Number

If your background check didn’t find any records on a person and you have their phone number, you can use Infotracer to search for information using this, too. Phone number searches will often provide you with owner information, carrier name, and even property records and criminal records connected to that owner.

You can use a reverse phone number search when you’re receiving strange calls from an unknown number, too. Or when you score a number from that cute guy or girl and want to find out if they really are who they claim to be.

Searching by License Plate Number

If you have spied your person of interest’s license plate number, you can search for records connected to them in the public database by simply entering the number and state. You’ll find out the vehicle information as well as owner contact details, address and any existing driving records in their name available for research.

Some people use a license plate search for an unknown vehicle that is found on their property or driving by. This way, you can find out if it’s someone you know or someone you should be concerned about – and decide whether to notify the police or not at that time.

Searching by Email

The tools available at Infotracer.com also allow you to search for records related to an email address of the person you’re researching. Perhaps it’s someone you’ve been communicating with for some time and is planning to meet with them and you need to discover whether there are any criminal records in their past.

You can also use a reverse email search to discover the sender’s identity and any records in their name if you’re receiving emails from someone you don’t know yet. You may discover they aren’t who they claim to be, or it could be a long-lost co-worker or schoolmate.

Records You’ll Find

The public and private databases used to find results on any of these searches can provide a wealth of information, such as:

  • Criminal Records
  • Arrests
  • Marriages & Divorces
  • Contact Info
  • Social Accounts
  • Photos
  • Driving Records
  • Property Records

The possibilities are basically endless as far as the amount and type of information you can learn about someone. With just one piece of information – phone number, name, address, email or plate number, you can always learn more about someone.

Criminal and arrest records are vital when you’re trying to determine if someone is trustworthy or dangerous. Violent criminal histories tend to repeat themselves, and fraudulent activity hardly ever goes completely away.

Links to social profiles can help you find clues about someone’s lifestyle and hobbies, habits and even family life. You’ll also see whether they have mutual friends with you, or if they are just a random contact with no connection at all.

The best time to learn about the possible dangers a person poses to you and your family is before something bad happens. When a traditional background check leaves you wanting more, these reverse searches can almost always help you connect the dots and form an educated opinion about whether a person is a threat or nothing to be worried about at all.
