Oh the tangled web we weave? This is what I've come up with since: If you are arrested and printed, in any locality, that also goes to that state's court system data bank. So a check of your local court, or the state where you were arrested, will show your history, all online for anybody to see. Your prints are also swept into the FBI data bank, onto your RAP sheet- but the FBI data is not available online, through the mail only, and takes times and money. Also, I heard the FBI automatically sends RAP info to state agencies, as in BONs. So the BON knows all. Anyone else will know either what's free online, or if they pursue the FBI route, will know every detail. If you move, say from AZ to CA, and apply for a CA job- they will scan the CA state police site for your history, not necessarily AZ, where you were arrested. So it's a slim chance of escaaping scrutiny that way, unless they contact the FBI. Also, if you report actions to the BON, the employer will know your record that way. If you don't report to the BON, there's a chance the FBI will, then you are doomed. Fun, eh? In a nutshell, sites like beenverified.com only scan free information available online to anyone anyway, so that's not a real background 'check'.
