You can have great fun doing unlimited background checks on people
You don't realize just how much fun it can be finding out information on people
until you try it for yourself. I've recently signed up for a web site that gives you access to all kinds of public records and allows you to do unlimited absolutely free background checks. I started out looking for an old friend that I hadn't seen for years but I've ended up finding out all sorts of interesting things about my friends and neighbors. It's my new hobby and it's great fun.
How to investigate a lot of people without paying a fortune
You could go to one of the many web sites that offer background checks for a one time payment but most, if not all of these sites require you to pay for each search that you do. This might be ok if you know what you are looking for and find it fast. But the real fun starts when you start looking up relatives and neighbors and their relatives and neighbors. You will probably want to do criminal records and arrest warrants searches on them too not to mention all the other public records searches you can potentially do. If you have to pay for each and every useful search you do then it's no fun at all.
Joining a site offering free background searches can be very cost effective
The best way to have fun with information on the Internet is to join a public records membership site that offers unlimited free public records searches. I found one that is very affordable and it turned out to be great value for money. Using this web site you can do as much investigating on as many people as you want and you can do it whenever you want to. It's like having your own free person finder and public records database at your command any time you want. Read my review of the investigations web site I have been using here: online public records web site.
How to find old friends
Start with a background check and enter the information that you know about the person. If you don't find them at first, try variations of the name like Joseph instead of Joe and Samantha instead of Sam. Also try the people finder and other searches because they often give different results depending on the source of the information in the database. Don't give up if you don't find them right away, they are probably in there somewhere.
Don't stop doing free background checks on people
You might have to do several searches to find the person that you are looking for and when you find the right person you will no doubt want to do a full background search, and an arrest warrant search, sex offender search, marriage records search and any other public records search that you might think useful. That is quite a few searches but it doesn't take long and you don't have to stop there. Because all of your searches will be free you can start investigating neighbors, friends, relatives and their neighbors and relatives too. It gets a little addictive I warn you but you will wonder how you ever managed without it. Have great fun finding free information on people now
