Imagine hiring a felon because you didn’t find his criminal records on BeenVerified. How about buying a stolen car because the vehicle records published on BeenVerified were falsified? Worse yet, as one complainant reported, finding your name attached to a crime you didn’t commit.

BeenVerified was given a grade of “C” by the Better Business Bureau. Customers rated the service 1.04 out of 5 stars. In April 2019, the BBB asked BeenVerified to address complaints about publishing inaccurate information and providing poor customer service.

Using background-checking services can be risky. You could review inaccurate information to evaluate an individual’s history and behavior. If you’re unimpressed with BeenVerified, consider canceling the subscription.
