The other day my friend was pulled over and arrested for some felony that she didn't commit!! Turns out, someone stole her identity, got credit cards, loans, and robbed a convenience store!!! They, of course, let her go and are sorting out the problems, but I'm wondering... what's the best program or something for thorough background checks? I don't have any legal issues or anything, but I'd like to be able to continuously check just so the same thing doesn't happen to me! It's so scary!Answer Question

When I did my internship at a courthouse, they did a background check on me and another student. The other student had something come back on her and come to find out that an inmate had used her ssn when he was being booked in. Everything was fine and she was able to talk to one of the lawyers for free. I made a comment that I knew nothing was on mine since I had just had a background check a week or so ago. The lady told me that just because I got back a clear report doesn't mean that someone isn't using my ssn. When you get a background check done there may be people who are using your ssn and may have committed crimes but the report that you or your employer gets doesn't show that. So, the best thing to do is to go to the courthouse to get a through background check done and to keep an eye on your credit report.
