    Before getting into business, you often need to know more about who you are going to be working with. An asset search can give you an accurate picture of an individuals real success, whatever the appearance may be.

When NIS performs assets searches, where does the information come from?

NIS uses legal open sources and public records to uncover asset information. We will provide you with a comprehensive written report which includes the sources of the information.

We cannot perform credit reports, although they are not usually relevant anyway

Federal privacy laws and the Fair Credit Reporting Act prohibit the release of credit reports under many circumstances and they do not specify assets under most situations. Private investigators also do not have the legal authority to access bank or investment account information, although there are many private investigators who claim that they have the ability to obtain financial information to include bank records, account information and other account details. The most effective way to get bank records or account information is with the customer’s consent.
