Frequently Asked Questions Investigations

Is it true that the investigation will include a credit report about me?

Yes. A search of the records of commercial credit reporting agencies is an integral part of almost all background investigations. The credit check done by the National Background Investigations Bureau is considered a "soft check" and does not affect your credit.
