What is a Background Search

Private information about you is out there.

Every day, private, sensitive information about you is bought, sold and stored on numerous private and public servers across the country.

Once information is out there, it’s out there.

Many people are curious about their own private data in the public sphere, or past actions that might come back to haunt them.

Performing a background check on yourself is one way to prepare and get ahead of any potential future problems.

How to have a thorough Backcheck on Yourself

Online background checks? Low-quality.

There are a number of paid web sites that offer online background checks.  These are nearly always low-quality reports created from only pieces of information – with no quality assurance or professional review.

Martin Investigative Services uses more, current data sources.  We can discover assets and accounts, worldwide. And your results are personally reviewed by private investigators who are former DEA, FBI, IRS, and Secret Service agents.

Better, more comprehensive results.

Martin Investigative Services has compiled the largest database of public information in the United States, and can use it to maximize the value of your actions, make personal decisions, or reduce business risk.

Former Federal agents review & deliver the results.

Our private investigators are Former DEA, FBI, IRS, and Secret Service agents. An investigator will personally review the results of your background checks and go over them with you.

Free & confidential consultations.

It is always free to get a consultation at Martin Investigative Services.

Let us know what you need, and we’ll get started.

Case Study: Background Checks

Mission Viejo Background Check

A private party met with us in our Mission Viejo office, and wanted to investigate a candidate running for political office.


Our private investigators ran a thorough background check and performed surveillance.

We discovered that the subject was not living in the district in which he was running, and that he was having an affair.

As a result, this person dropped out of the race.

The private investigators at Martin Investigative Services provide background checks and surveillance services for a number of reasons. We are experts at producing results. Contact us for a free, confidential consultation.
