A background verification agency is always here to help you look through the books and crannies to understand where your applicants are lying, misinforming, or hiding. But, have you checked the agency you are hiring too?
One such case came out way, where a background verification company was taking reports and details back to their clients. They roped in clients by offering a very lucrative deal for verification packages and duped them by reverting fake details and reports.
After being caught, they rebranded themselves and began working for clients at throwaway prices once again. Make sure you check who you are working with before you choose who to trust!
Prevention is always better than punishment!
