Because it reveals residential history for further criminal background checks, the ID Trace Pro II search is often the first search performed and an essential element of many background checks. Stay a step ahead of your candidates by uncovering undisclosed locations for additional county criminal searches.

The ID Trace Pro II search includes any names and addresses related to an individual’s Social Security number (SSN). Reported address information is returned from databases maintained by the United States Postal Service (USPS), direct marketing and non-banking services. In addition, this trace search ensures that a SSN is within a valid range and identifies the state and year of issuance.

Information reported includes:

  • Name(s)
  • Aliases
  • Current and previous addresses

Ideal for:

  • Identifying a complete list of AKAs, maiden names, nicknames and spelling variations
  • Candidates with a limited credit history, such as minors and aliens
  • Collection agencies

Built-in fraud alerts

The ID Trace Pro II search includes a Hawk Alert “red flag” warning system. This alerts you to inconsistent information or fraudulent activities on file with TransUnion credit bureau.

Q. How many names and addresses do you report from the ID Trace Pro II search?

A. This search has the widest scope for Social Security number based searches and all matches are reported to you. Unlimited matches can be returned, which may include common names (i.e. Tom Johnson).

Q. Why is an on-site inspection required for this search?

A. Since the information is obtained from a credit bureau, we are required to confirm that your business physically exists before giving a TransUnion report to you. With the risk of identity theft and web-based fraud on the rise, this requirement is for the protection of sensitive consumer information.

Q. Does the ID Trace Pro II search validate Social Security Numbers?

A. Yes and no.
