Errors on background checks are unfortunately common. However, the laws under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) were put into place to protect consumers from false reporting. It the responsibility of background check companies to ensure the information they provide is accurate and up-to-date.
One of the most common background check issues is inaccurate criminal history. This happens most often with instant criminal history checks. Because these are instant checks it is easier to get a mixed file, especially if you have a common name. This is when information belonging to another individual shows up on your background check.
Background check errors can prevent employment and housing, and in some cases ruin your reputation. For example, if you have never committed a crime and you suddenly have a criminal history on your background check or the background check inaccurately says you are a sex offender, this can be incredibly damaging.
