Locate Almost Anyone By Entering A Name
- a fictional account inspired by real events
Have you ever looked someone up on Google only to be disappointed by what you found? You're not alone. Millions of Americans have been using a popular new website that may reveal more than what can be found on Google.
If you're like me, you probably spend a lot of time wondering about other people. It might be your neighbor, maybe a family member, or someone you just met. It's embarrassing to admit, but I look up my ex on Facebook all the time.
When I searched my ex on BeenVerified, I not only found basic info about his age, phone numbers, and addresses, but I even saw that he had created some secret new social media profiles. The really crazy part was that he now had a criminal record. It turns out that shortly after we broke up, he got caught committing a minor offense.
BeenVerified has more records than you might realize. My report has all types of records like photos and my career history. On other reports, you might also find bankruptcy records, licenses, weapons permits, traffic violations, and more.
"I used BeenVerified to check a guy I met online. He seemed very shy and was hesitant to share information with me. With what little information I had, I used BV to verify what he had told me. It turns out he had lied about where he lived and his family. Needless to say, I severed contact with him and have not heard from him since. Thank you BV!"
That might leave you wondering: Where does BeenVerified get all this information from?
All of these interesting details come from public records. The cool part is that there are records that you often can't find on Google. BeenVerified combines records from dozens of sources to compile their background reports. In the past, to search my ex's records, I would have needed to go to a court house, pay a fee, and submit a request. It might have taken days or weeks. Now I can just go on BeenVerified and search the information in seconds.
These are just a few of the data points available:
Information That May Be Available on BeenVerified:
- Criminal Records
- Traffic Violations
- Email Addresses
- Phone Numbers
- Social Profiles
- Home Addresses
- Relatives & Associates
- And More!
Another thing to keep in mind is that people may also be searching for information about you. It’s important that you run a search of your own name to find out what potentially harmful information others can find. Have you ever had a parking ticket? Been arrested? If so, never be caught in a situation where others ask you “So, can you tell me about your drug possession charge?”, “Is there a reason you have so many traffic violations?”, or “Why have you lived in ten different places?”
I've spent a lot of time on BeenVerified recently. There are so many ways to search. I looked up my hometown address to see who lived there now. I looked up an annoying phone number that kept calling me. I even a ran a report to see if there were any sex offenders who live near me. (It turns out there are, which is pretty scary.)
I strongly recommend this website to everyone I know. Anybody can use it.
Try it yourself and see what you find out. Just search your name or someone you know, click here.
