The Screening Process
Q: What happens after I place an order with StarPoint for a Employment Background Check?
A: The StarPoint order process is very easy, and you get results in seconds through our secure online ordering system. All accounts have 24/7 access to reports ordered in the previous 180 days.
Q: How quickly can I get my reports after I place an order?
A: All reports are available immediately excluding Employment verifications which take no more than 3 days to complete.
Q: When I make a payment with my credit card, I'm asked for the Security Code. What is that?
A: On a MasterCard or Visa, the 3-digit Security Code shows on the back of the card, usually at the end (or near) the signature line. On an American Express card, it is a 4-digit number on the front of the card (separate from the card number itself). In compliance with PCI Security Standards we never store your CVV2 code.
Credit Report Specifics
Q: What is the FCRA?
A: FCRA is the Fair Credit Reporting Act. It is Federal law regulating the collection, use, and distribution of consumer credit information. FCRA was enacted in 1970, and substantially amended in the late 1990s and in 2003, and forms the basis for all consumer credit rights. The law is intended to ensure privacy and accuracy of credit reports. FCRA regulates activities by consumer reporting agencies, by any person or company providing information to those consumer reporting agencies, and by any person or company using the information for credit, employment, or insurance purposes. FCRA also provides consumers the right to periodically review and have errors corrected in their credit records. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 allows consumers to have easier access to view their reports and dispute incorrect items.
Q: How do I get my own credit report?
A: You can get a copy of your own credit report, free of charge, by visiting www.annualcreditreport.com or calling 1.877.322.8228.
