Marcus Background Screening Professional Results. Everytime. Our Difference

Why Not Use Inexpensive Reports?

The Internet is full of cheap background check reports – but ours are truly different. Can you compare a Mercedes to a Hyundai? It’s like comparing apples to oranges. Our reports are not just generated by a government database name search. Unlike the others, ours are reliable accurate investigator produced documents that you can be confident are correct. You will easily see the difference.

Accuracy

Accurate reports only contain information of the person in question.

We use our over 20 years of experience to determine what information is relevant, what information is unreportable due to conflicts with the FCRA, and what information is just wrong.

Completeness

Completeness is having all relevant information on the person in question.

Reliable background reports must identify all former addresses and name aliases, then be intelligent enough to search all applicable jurisdictions. This simply cannot be done by an automated process.

Understandability

Inexpensive background reports are similar to credit reports – they contain a lot of data, but are impossible to understand.

You can draw good conclusions from our reports.

Questions

Price, process and anything else.

WHY ARE THESE PLANS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN OTHERS ON THE INTERNET

Most searches that you purchase on the Internet are instant database searches. Our searches all include a 7 year county criminal search, with all relevant names and all counties searched. Most reports only search one name and one county. That is a HUGE difference in both the accuracy and completeness of the report.

ARE THERE ANY EXTRA FEES THAT I SHOULD BE AWARE OF?

Yes, some jurisdictions across the country charge fees to access their records. These are usually extra fees imposed by the various counties and they can range from $1 to as high as $65, as is the case in New York state.

IS IT EXPENSIVE TO SCREEN AN EMPLOYEE?

No, given the costs associated with employee turnover, employee theft, violence in the workplace, hiring unqualified employees, and negligent hiring lawsuits, the cost of a comprehensive screening performed by Marcus Background Investigations is less than a few hours on the job.

CAN MARCUS BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS PROVIDE SERVICES IN EVERY STATE AND EVERY COUNTY IN THE UNITED STATES?

Yes, Marcus Background Investigations can check every state in the United States, plus every county in those states with trained researchers visiting the local courthouses. We also perform International Searches.

WHEN WILL I BE BILLED?

Clients of Marcus Background Investigations are billed on a calendar month basis for the reports completed in that month.

WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

We accept payment by check, Visa, Master Card, Discover, or American Express.

DO YOU HAVE A SAFE SECURE ON-LINE ORDERING AND REPORTING SYSTEM?

Yes, you may enter the information online, and when the report is completed you will
Receive a notification that the report has been completed and is ready for you to review.

WHAT IS THE TURN-AROUND TIME?

Marcus Background Investigations has some of the quickest turn-around times among screening companies, usually within 48 hours.

BESIDES THE THREAT OF A NEGLIGENT HIRING LAWSUIT, WHY ELSE SHOULD WE THOROUGHLY SCREEN OUR APPLICANTS?

The main reasons for screening each employee are:
• Employee theft
• Turnover
• Unqualified employees
• Violence in the workplace

WHY SHOULD I RUN A COMPREHENSIVE BACKGROUND CHECK?

Negligent Hiring Lawsuits are on the rise and it can financially cripple you and your company. Negligent hiring lawsuits that result in a jury trial, have an average cost of over $3,000,000 to employers that lose and cases settled prior to trial are running close to $500,000.

WHY WON’T AN INTERNET DATABASE OR A THIRD-PARTY DATABASE BE SUFFICIENT?

Because these databases are not complete. Most of them do not even come close to covering all jurisdictions in the United States (some estimates are as little as 40% coverage), many do not report the same criminal information as other databases, making each report totally different. An Internet report may contain information from a state’s Department of Corrections, or it may be based only on a sexual offender databases, or it might have some county or state records. You just don’t really know.

CAN MARCUS BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS ALSO PULL CIVIL RECORDS FOR ME?

Absolutely, we can check Civil Records in any jurisdiction in the country.

WHY ARE COUNTIES OTHER THAN THE ONES LIVED IN BEING CHECKED?

If the multi-state report contains a record, then per the FCRA, that record must be validated in the reporting jurisdiction (county).
