What is an investigative consumer report?

An investigative consumer report is a report that goes into more detail than a standard background check. Rather than just reviewing and reporting records, an investigative consumer report involves phone calls and interviews to references, prior employers and schools and colleges both to verify the information on your resume as well as to evaluate your candidacy for the job. Like a regular background check, employers need to get your permission before obtaining an investigatory consumer report, and, because the investigative report involves calls to people from your past, it is important that they do so.
