Were You Harmed By False Information or Errors In Your Criminal 411 Report?
Whether you get hired or promoted often depends on the information learned from an employment background check. A background check can come in many shapes and sizes. It may be as simple as verifying your social security number. Or it may include a detailed report of your credit and criminal history, or even information gathered from interviews of your friends and neighbors about your character and reputation.
Whatever the scope of the background check, the FCRA sets strict standards for how employers and background check companies get consent for and conduct background checks, and what they can do with the information they find.
If a background check company like Criminal 411 fails to meet those standards, the FCRA gives you rights.

Actual Complaints Against Criminal 411
Hardworking people just like you who lost job opportunities due to an inaccurate or unfair Criminal 411 employment background check report have already sued the company for FCRA violations. Justia lists at least 1 federal civil lawsuits against Criminal 411 alleging violations of the FCRA due to an improper employment screening report.
On May 13, 2013, a consumer sued Criminal 411 in the federal district court for the District of Arizona for violating the FCRA in connection with an employment background check and that he lost employment opportunities and suffered emotional distress, reputational harm and other damages.
The complainant alleged that he applied for but was denied employment with the City of Mesa directly and through a staffing agency based on an inaccurate employment background check report from Criminal 411. Criminal 411 prepared the background check but failed to use reasonable procedures to ensure the maximum accuracy possible of the report as the FCRA requires, failed to provide the complainant with legally-required notices and denied the complainant any meaningful ability to dispute the inaccurate information. According to the complainant, Criminal 411falsely listed a felony conviction (resisting arrest with violence) on the complainant’s report when, in fact, the complainant had never been convicted of a felony, but only of a misdemeanor.
