Regarding the background and eviction check: Our screening process uses subject selection when returning and matching records to consumers. This matches logic to eliminate false positives. It works by cross checking first, middle, and last name, full address, date of birth, and SSN against the Instant National Search. It also utilizes a unique enrichment feature which identifies previous addresses and aliases/AKAs.
