    "I found this to be a perfect solution to the problem. The homepage was very well laid out and easy to navigate and see all relevant information. The tabs on the top featured drop down menus to make navigating and finding excatly what i wanted even easier. I really liked the option on the homepage that lets me select what sort of business i have. (i am small, i am mid-size, etc.) Combine this with pricing plans up front, FAQs and all sorts of other information, i found this site to be perfect for my needs of running a background check. "

    "If a person is looking for a good resource for online background checks, Accurate Background may or may not be the best choice. For companies looking into the background of potential employees, it is the perfect solution. However, if a regular citizen is looking for background information about someone for personal reasons, it doesn't necessarily seem like a well-matched resource. "

    "Very easy resource for conducting background checks. I wish there was a little more specific info available from the get-go, I had to make a phone call to get pricing and they tried to up-sell me. There are a lot of tabs on the site, so it looks like there would be a lot of info available but there isn't until you call them."
