I am being asked to take a background check and provide not only my name, but name, address, dob, SS#, AND authorize a ton of things before it would continue. I looked Checkr up and they are NOT accredited by the BBB, and have over 180 complaints: https://www.bbb.org/us/ca/san-francisco/profile/employment-background-check/checkr-inc-1116-539357/c.... I am happy to submit a background check (again) from a reputable provider, but am not comfortable giving out all of my information and authorization to a company with that poor of a rating... Please advise.
