Pros / You can get search assistance for a background report.
Cons / The reports are not as accurate as other services.
Verdict / Verispy offers some tools for finding the right person, but you can only search by name or location and the reports are often inaccurate.
The best background check companies give you the most comprehensive and accurate results possible on reports. Verispy offers one of the most comprehensive background searches available, but they lack accuracy. One benefit to using Verispy is the search assistance the company provides if you’re having difficulty finding the person you want to run a background check on or if you just want to assure you have the right person. You can specify the information you need and someone from Verispy’s customer support team should contact you by email within 48 hours; however, in our testing we had to wait longer.
There are many types of information you can search for on a person through a Verispy online background check, but often the data is wrong. After running several reports on our test subjects, we found very little information on all of them. The most accurate information came by way of the criminal background check, but even then, many offenses that other services listed were missing. Although Verispy claims a comprehensive background check will include information for bankruptcies, tax liens and court judgments, we were only able to find marriage and divorce records on our test subjects.
You can search for a person using basic information such as name and general location, which are required to begin a search, though you can choose to perform a nationwide search if you don’t know which state a person lives in. The preview gives you the potential matches for the person you’re looking for. After selecting the person, you receive your report within seconds on another screen.
Your account includes a dashboard with access to your purchased reports, and if you’ve chosen to subscribe to Verispy’s monthly service, you'll have access to the Unlimited Search Menu. Any searches you run won't be organized as reports in the dashboard, so if you opt not to purchase a comprehensive report, you have to run the search again to access the same data. Reading some of the reports can be confusing unless you’re familiar with court or criminal documents.
The help center includes FAQs with information about the data available, physical documents and billing. If you need to contact Verispy’s customer support, you can do so through a form on its website. There is no phone support available. We contacted the company for search assistance, and although there was a long delay in getting back to us, the customer service representative who responded was very friendly and helpful.
Verispy offers search assistance to help ensure you choose the right person when you buy a background check report. The service doesn’t do as well with accuracy as the best background check services, though, so it’s hard to know if you’re getting the full and complete story on someone.
