“Instant Background Check” websites are nothing more than sites that automatically search through FREE public record databases which are available online to the general public. 

What these sites do NOT do is provide you with an actual background check. The term “instant background check” is very misleading; all these websites do is provide you with information compiled by an automated system, searching free databases on the internet. You, the customer, could have easily completed this type of search for free using sites such as:

  • Google

  • Bing

  • Facebook

  • Yellowpages

  • Ect…

These “background check” companies that sell this type of information are NOT licensed investigation firms and cannot provide you with the information you may be seeking. Most of the time, you will not be provided with criminal or civil filing when using one of these background websites.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no single database that can perform a background check. As a licensed investigation firm, Top Echelon has access to exclusive databases which are not available to the general public. The information in these databases is only just a starting point for a background check in Louisiana. A “True Background Check” will consist of a detective physically locating records from the courts and other sources. After locating the subject in our databases, we begin by compiling data to form a picture of the subject’s life. From this data, we can provide you with a list of their previous addresses, professional licenses, registered vehicles, bank loans, utilities, relatives, etc…. But this does not give us a full picture of this person’s past. From the information obtained on this report, our investigators are then dispatched to the areas where the subject has lived, or has connections, to conduct civil and criminal record searches.

A genuine background check in Louisiana is not a fast process and there may be many hoops for an investigator to jump through when obtaining information on a subject. Because of this fact, it is very important to hire a competent detective firm who has the skills to gather evidence in an efficient manner.
Top Echelon private investigators have extensive experience conducting these types of investigations and can help you with get the answers you need!
