Has anyone else received an email from Thumbtack asking for you to update your background check info with a company called Checkr Background Service?

I believe it to be fake

@ScottTheDogGuy Checkr is the company that we go through to process pros background checks on Thumbtack. This article here has more information on that! If you want to send me a private message with a screenshot of the email you recieved, I'd be happy to give you more clarification.

@ScottTheDogGuy that's definitely legit! Follow the link to get your background check started and let me know if you have any further questions.

I do have another question. Why do I have to do my background check all over again? I don't like giving out my SS# online and it was hard enough doing it the first time! I don't understand why I have to pass this again if I've already done this once before?

I received this request from Checkr too - and i'm a bit concerned and also I have done this years ago when I first started with Thumbtack - why do I have to do it again? I'm still the same person. If we've moved or have different emails or phone numbers - yes I can see that would need updating. Why can't it be done without or SS #? Don't you have it already from when we first signed up? Please let me know thanks.
