Complaint / review text:
I purchased a premium background check on myself before applying for a job working for a friend. The application requested any criminal records be listed. Having gotten into some minor trouble as a young adult, I enlisted Instant Checkmate to be sure of accuracy. Nothing turned up on my background report that I paid the premium report price for, so I figured I could check no to the criminal history box. Months later I received an offer contingent upon a background check. No problem, I pre-screened myself with Instant Checkmate right? Well, turns out Instant Checkmate was inaccurate and I had the job offer rescinded - my fault I guess, but I went off of information I paid good money for, and ended up losing a $72,000 a year job offer with the largest University in Michigan. I paid them $43 to lose $72,000.
