Why do I need an asset search?

Are you going through a divorce and suspecting that your spouse is hiding or omitting assets from you? Are you an executor or personal representative of an estate who is trying to figure out what assets the deceased owned or what bills are outstanding? Are you contemplating filing a personal injury lawsuit against someone but are worried about your legal costs and your ability to collect on your judgment if you prevail? Are you responsible for conducting a due diligence review on a business entity or new hire?

What is a “No hit” search result and do I have to pay the full price for a “No hit” result?

A “No-hit” result is when no information could be obtained on a particular subject. This usually occurs if the subject is very young or if an alias is being used. A “No-hit” search result does not mean that no assets were located, as many individuals may have limited assets.

In the event that there is a “No-hit”, you will not be charged and a refund will issued.

Can I get bank account information on the subject?

No.

Under the Financial Services Modernization Act, except for some extreme limited exceptions, it is no longer permissible for anyone to conduct bank account search through false pretense, or other fraudulent acts.

For more information on the legality of bank account search, please see Bank Account Searches, are they permissible or not?

How come other companies claim that they are able to do bank account search?

It is not uncommon to see ads for bank account searches by asset search companies but be aware. Any of those asset search companies who claim to be capable of conducting a bank account search is doing so by the use of false pretense. Not only is it an invasion of privacy, and considered to be an unfair and deceptive business practice to conduct a bank account search, it is also a federal crime under the Financial Services Modernization Act. If you order bank account search with the knowledge that false pretense will be used, you may be vicariously liable as well.

Yes. Our reports are intended for legitimate business purposes only and are furnished in strict confidence for the exclusive use of our clients.
