Many need to obtain a criminal background check for employment, school, or housing purposes. However, it is very difficult to distinguish which background checks providers are legit and which ones are a scam.
If you are concerned a website is a scam, it is likely best to obtain a certified background check from the clerk of court at the courthouse in your county. For a single county, the fee is $25.
If you need a North Carolina statewide background check, you can contact the State Bureau of Investigation.
A background check will show any non-expunged cases.
