Social Security Search – is used as a tool only to further research and verifications. It can confirm application information, and is not a report. This search provides consumer-identifying information obtained from non-credit-report sources (No Inquiry is made to the consumer’s credit file). This report will assist in validating the applicant’s social security number (Identifies numbers not issued by SSA or that were filed with death claim). The report also supplies name variations, DOB, current and previous addresses. Identity variations may include aliases, maiden and misspelled names or names of consumers who have changed their identity. (Compare this to information supplied on application for resume fraud).
This search helps uncover possible identity and resume fraud by revealing name variations, and historical addresses. Address histories and identity variations are invaluable to the discovery of additional jurisdictions and names to search when ordering criminal history profiles. Often applicants try to hide criminal backgrounds by not listing areas of residence where a conviction occurred or sometimes commit crimes traveling through jurisdictions other than their residence.
