This necessarily includes all employees in accounting functions, but may also include other employees such as those that are entrusted with a corporate credit or purchasing card. The background reports Pinkerton conducts provide a detailed credit history including accounts, payment history, liabilities and public record information such as: bankruptcy, judgments, liens and collections. With this screening, we also provide current and former addresses, employers, and alias names as reported by financial institutions to the credit bureau.

We provide a report of the state driver’s license record of a subject. Availability and legal uses of the background screening reports vary from state to state.

Without the UCC Filings search, the lender or small business owner might be required to check county lien records in several counties in order to get true financial pictures of lending recipients.
