Dallas, Texas - "If the thief who steals your identity commits another crime, you
become his or her living alias, and you can have a very tough time getting a job",
says Dr. John Allan, President of The Integrity Center.
The ongoing terrorist threat is causing companies and universities to deepen their
background checking. Knowing this, Americans are worrying about two important
questions: (1) Is someone else using my identity ?, and (2) What will employers
or universities discover when they check my background ?
The Integrity Center is seeing an increasing number of individuals who want to
get a current copy of their various personal records to review. People want to
see what various sources have on file about them. That means getting the same
freshly retrieved records that employers, universities, and officials use - not
stale data from online databases. However, most people don't know how to obtain
their current records.
The Integrity Center, a freshly retrieved records firm, has now made the required
request forms available FREE on their website for anyone to obtain. To print the
forms, a person just needs to go to
CheckMyself . A person
can always make a trip to each source and obtain their records. If a person wants
an organization like The Integrity Center to confidentially retrieve their reports
for them, there is no required package of reports to buy, or a minimum charge. An
individual can just request the items of their choice, for example, their Driver's
License History, their Personal Credit History, or their Criminal Conviction
History. The prices for the freshly retrieved copies of each item are listed.

records, and they want to know what organizations will see", says Dr. John Allan,
President of The Integrity Center.
