Stages of work
As we have already found out, there are different types of person background search. Before starting work, we conduct a test check of a person – it will not cost you anything. This is how we determine whether we can really satisfy your request in full.
Agreeing on the terms
If we can guarantee the result, there is only one step left. Just before the start, we discuss your request in details one more time, agree on the time of completion, give you an estimated cost, and wait for your permission to start the background verification. As soon as you confirm, we start collecting and analyzing data.
The result of the work
We send you a report with information about the person for you to check and give us your assessment. If necessary, we can find more information.
What shows up on a person's background check?
We provide report according to your request. If you do not have a specific request, we will offer you to perform a background search using a "standardized template". In fact, this is not really a template, but rather a standard number of sections in which we research data.
Most often, a comprehensive background investigation contains: biography, information about current and previous activities, negative aspects of the activity (scandals, lawsuits, fraud), assets (owned property, non-property assets), contacts, connections (business partners, front persons, co-owners in projects, relatives), media mentions, and other information depending on the person under investigation.
Social media screening
We have discussed the most important things, and now we propose to look at the specific sources that Molfar's OSINT analysts study to obtain the correct data according to your request.
Report on a person naturally involves checking social media. We carefully study all the person's posts, all the information he or she has published, their friends and followers, their comments, and even the posts they like. For example, if a person likes images with swastikas and fascist slogans, but does so secretly, we will find out about it, attach evidence to the report, and mark them as having far-right views.
Molfar analysts research not only the persons' current social networks, but also archived accounts. Social media screening is an important step in persons' background search.
Criminal records monitoring
And not only criminal records, but also other registered data that is important when checking people's background. Molfar analysts have access to hundreds of registries around the world. After making a request, we receive an extract with specific data related to the person. Let us emphasize once again: we are talking about either open registers or paid registers that legally provide access to state information after paying a fixed cost of the request.
Other types of data in background search
The chain of tools and steps required for checking people's background via open databases is a Molfar trade secret. The OSINT tools page contains some of the publicly available tools used by Molfar analysts.
What is worth mentioning is that the process is long and involves plenty of atypical steps. We have experience of OSINT people searching in 39 countries. We know the specific ways of gathering information for each of our clients' countries. To find out more details and order the service, please contact us. We are ready to discuss the details until you are ensured that Molfar will solve your problem.
