FBI Criminal Background Checks

After one of the company's shareholders discovered that he had lied on his resume, Scott Thompson was fired from his job as CEO of Yahoo, Inc. According to numerous reports, on his resume, Thompson claimed to hold degrees in accounting and computer science; recently it was revealed that he only holds a degree in accounting. The computer science degree was fabricated. For the foreseeable future, both Yahoo and Mr. Thompson will be involved in a very costly legal battle over his termination, severance compensation and stock options.

This whole scenario could have been prevented had Mr. Thompson been honest from the start or if the folks at Yahoo had taken the time to do even the most rudimentary FBI criminal background checks. The verification of degree(s) earned is one of the most inexpensive yet important components of a pre-hire investigation. DataCheck is the industry leader in terms of conducting pre-employment screenings, social security number verification, sex offender status and criminal histories. An investment in such pre-employment screening, especially when a company is considering hiring a top level person for a publicly traded company, will pay huge dividends in the future. DataCheck can conduct an Education History Report, which will provide employers with verification of high school diplomas, G.E.D. Certificates, College and University attendance, degrees and trade school certification, including grade point averages and class ranking. This type of report would have been very helpful to the board of directors at Yahoo.

Another service offered by DataCheck is that of reference checking. Checking the references of candidates can be time consuming and unless the person doing the checking is experienced in such matters, an inexperienced verifier will miss obvious red flags. Companies like DataCheck will check the references ofall job applicants.

More Information About Background Screening



" Do not hesitate to work with DataCheck. It is a wonderful company that delivers better and faster results than our previous provider, a very large, well known background screening company, who we left after many years! JFSA began working with DataCheck about a year ago and we never looked back. The website to place orders is very user friendly and the results arrive within 24 hours in most cases. In addition, DataCheck has excellent customer service and personal touch. They are always available to answer questions as needed. We are located on the east coast and DataCheck is on the west coast, and I was somewhat concerned in the beginning about being in a different time zone, but the time difference has never presented a problem to us. DataCheck met and exceeded all our expectations!"
