What Is The Difference In Hiring A Private Investigator Versus An Online Screening Company To Conduct A Background Check?

Golden Consulting & Investigations provides pre-employment and comprehensive background checks on individuals and businesses in all 50 US states and abroad. Our experienced private investigators in Florida are thorough and all our work is guaranteed to be accurate.  We have access to resources that most private investigators do not, allowing us to obtain the most desired evidence and information for our clients.

Background checks into individuals and businesses can be conducted in many layers.  The success of obtaining the correct information is with the proper use of research, and discreet fieldwork.  These background checks can be very simple or very complex.  Our private investigators are trained through their experience to understand what our clients need to know, and then execute the investigation to obtain the evidence needed.

We use a multi-step approach when conducting our background checks and all work is reviewed before delivery to the client.


Standard practices

Social Security Number Trace

This background investigation service verifies the validity of the Social Security Number provided by the applicant and provides an address history based on public record and credit header information. This enables us to find areas where an applicant has resided that they may not have reported on their consent form or online entry.

Federal District Criminal History Search

This is a background screening check of all 94 Federal District Courts for criminal history information, including felonies and misdemeanors. Federal crimes may not be located at the state or county level, so we always recommend including this background check service in your package.


A search of The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) contains the names of foreign nationals whom the United States government currently has sanctions against. Persons on this list include known terrorists and narcotic traffickers.

State/County Criminal History Search

Core to any good background screening check is a search of records for the state or county in which the applicant has resided for criminal history information involving felony or misdemeanor charges. The statewide search is used by Golden CI  in areas where the search is considered reputable and provides a thorough search of the area in addition to a reasonable turnaround time for processing. In areas where a Statewide search is unavailable or not reputable, a County Criminal History search is used in its place.

National Criminal Super Search

The National Criminal Super Search is an online repository search that hits on about 350-400 million records including sanction searches, INTERPOL Most Wanted, FBI Most Wanted, and various other electronic repositories including some county court records. This is a great search to use to add breadth to your criminal background screening check, but it should never be used as a standalone search.

National Sex Offender Search

Search of the US Department of Justice National Sex Offender Search.
