When You Barely Know A Person

It is always an exciting thing to meet new friends. New people in our lives have a way of energizing us and giving us energy on knowing fresh things, hearing new ideas, and gaining new perspectives. With the excitement comes the passion to do more and try new adventures. There is basically nothing wrong with this. After all, we are mere social beings who love to be with our kind. Our fellowmen.

But where does the problem really come in with strangers or new acquaintances? The problem lies when we do not think clearly, trust instantly, and find out in the end that we were not supposed to trust the person. This is a fearful experience to many especially if it is our safety which is at stake.

Sometime, we get cheated out of our money or identity. Somehow, we are able to manage through it. But what if it is our own safety at stake? We cannot just take this risk. It is crucial to think of and protect our lives, as well as that of our family.

Doing a background check on the person, whether it is the new neighbor, a new suitor for your daughter, or anyone new whom you might suspect to take a chapter in your life, is of utmost importance. Do not just leave things to fate. Being safe is our responsibility to ourselves and to our families. We should never take that for granted.

Faith Base Investigation

Faith institutions can also be involved in an anomaly - or people can be skeptical depending on their certain basis. We live in a world with countless kinds of faith base denominations or belief hence rooting a lot of misconceptions and disorder.

Faith base investigations are one of the most critical and sensitive cases unless there would  be strong evidence or witnesses to prove accusations or complaint. Many cases are reported that involves them. Abuse of different kinds, occultism, misleading of people may just be some.

When someone you know is engaging in a kind of faith base institution that you are in doubt, background investigation may help you assess or verify your doubts. You can start looking for information about the organizers or people behind the institution and once you have gathered enough and valid evidence, it is then that you may decide to do some necessary legal action.

Candidate Background Check

Candidates in whatever competition are normally screened for a background investigation. This is done as a basis of their qualification for the place in the competition they are running for. Competitions can be entered in by anomalies not known to voters or followers of a certain candidate. Some cases may involve bribery on the judges to win - a common intrigue on almost every competition. And some sabotaging co-candidates. If a candidate has this as a means to win the contest, should that candidate still be voted?

It should not only be the competition organizers and judges that have to do candidate background check. More so especially the voters (if any) who also have the power to put a candidate to win. Should the winner of that competition affect more people greatly - for instance, candidate for a political position, company or organizational position, international beauty contest etc. These positions affect the majority and so must be guarded more critically beyond apparent basis.

Upon screening a candidate, you must have in mind the things that is important, most especially their capabilities once they win.

Spousal Credibility Check

Trust is one of the most important foundation in any relationship. Should there be something that happens that ruins this essential principle, problem starts to crumble the relationship between partners or a group of people.

Mercy (not a real name) had been married for 7 years. Her marriage with her husband was a simple one. She stays as a housewife, taking care of their 5 year old son while her husband worked in an architectural company. Things are going along well between her and her partner. At weekend they spend time as a family to stroll in the mall, go to their in-laws or just stay at home relax and watch DVD. But then she noticed a change on her husband. He suddenly started to come home very late and often irritated. She just thought that it may just be due to his problems at work so she just didn't mind the problem too much. Then the husband started frequently going on an out of town assignment. This already started Mercy to have a suspicion regarding her husband. In the frustration that she felt, she thought of investigating.

She found out that her husband was all along lying to her and was seeing other woman. His out of town trips were also not true and he was just going to his other woman just living on a property near work. She confronted her husband when he arrived home and they had an argument. This went up to the court.

Hidden problems between partners would not be revealed until things like infidelity shook them. On the other hand, being skeptic about sudden changes on a partner helps to figure out the real problems so that it can be patched up - the sooner, the better.

Sexual Harassment Case

Sexual Harassment is an abusive forcing on someone to do a sexual act or a form of taking sexual advantage on someone. This happens on any places such as at work, school, or just at home and there really is no chosen place - the abuser can be anyone.

Claire (not a real name) is a new secretary in a law firm. She has been assigned to work for the office of Mr. John (not a real name) - one of the resident lawyers of the company. There are times that she has to stay late in the office to finish some documents that are needed for the next day's hearing. On and on, this had become Claire's work routine.

One time, in Claire's wonder, Mr. John stayed up longer in the office. He was working all along on his desk but she noticed in one corner of her eye that Mr. John is stealing glances on her once in a while. She notices this quite often but because she was just new at work, she did not give too much thinking about it but just continued on with her work.

After a while, Mr. John asked Claire for a coffee. When she went to get it and afterwards put it to his desk, he suddenly pulled her arms and tried to grab her. Claire then panicked and hurriedly pulled herself off and went outside. She hadn't managed to say a thing because of her fear and had not even asked for help from their office mates outside the room.

The next day, she did not went to work and just thought of the next thing she has to do. Being afraid of Mr. John and the embarrassment that she will go through, she thought of researching his profile or background information. She found out from there that Mr. John really had a history of sexual harassment in the past but because of the influence of his profession, no one dares to file a case against him.

But due to the evidences that Claire had gotten from her research, plus her personal experience of being one of his victims, Claire had braved to bring this out and file for a complaint thinking if there would be no one who'll dare act against the wrongful doing of Mr. John, there might possibly be more who will be victimized by him. In the persistence of Clare's bravery, Mr. John got fired from the law firm and his professional license was also taken away from him.
