I wanted to let all of my NALI Friends know of the great work Peter Barton in Vermont did for my client today!!
He got someone served today by using great investigative techniques on a person that we have tried to locate all over the place and I have had several different top investigators working on it. My client is beyond thrilled and this is really great.
Thank you Peter for this great work.-Harriet Gold
Our staff must be licensed to conduct business here in this state and part of the background screening is to verify degrees listed on resumes.

Not the hoped for result but a resolution to the situation.-PD
Our company uses Backgrounds Plus to help us with many of our day to day needs such as help identifying who’s vehicles are parked in our loft after a snowstorm. Who a telephone number is listed to when it shows up multiple times on one of our outgoing lines and no one claims to have made the calls.-MH
We were about to hire a Credit Manager for our automotive company when we sent the release to do a background over to Backgrounds Plus. Not only had this individual filed bankruptcy several times but he had been using multiple social security numbers and names.-RR
