Background Investigations


Background investigations in San Francisco should be mandatory for employers, landlords, and in the hiring of childcare or household help.  Anyone being considered for a position of extreme trust should have their past checked out by one of our licensed private investigators.  Would you rather know now or when it is too late?
Often times we are called upon to background the past of a potential new romantic partner.  Are you sure they are who they say?  In this day and age of computers and the internet, people can say and be almost anything or anyone they want…
We also perform in  depth background investigations for people or businesses considering a business relationship with an unknown entity.  Are they what they say they are?  Are you sure?  Do they really have the stability and funds they claim?  Let us find out.

At The DeWitt Detective Agency, we often get the case when it is too late. It is only after our client suspects something might be wrong that we get the call to check it out. More often than not, the client’s suspicions are found to be true, and they have already been taken for a financial and emotional ride.Of course, this all could have been avoided by adequately vetting the person or business the first time around.

Here are some of the background check services we offer:

  • Verifying social security number information
