Additional Fees:

 

Third Party Verifications or Court Runner Searches

Voyint conducts collection through public records, open source, and direct contact as its primary method for verifications and searches. However, there are circumstances where we rely on third-party or government databases for information that is not readily available through our primary methods. Often times, these third-party services incur additional fees or surcharges. In these situations, the fees or surcharges for these searches will be passed through at-cost. A 10% processing fee will also be assessed.

 

Services that this could include are:

  • Court Runner services are deployed when online database searches or public record searches do not yield results. Many State and Local jurisdictions do not offer online database records searches and therefore Court Runner services are requested to conduct those searches in-person. For example, Fairfax County court runners can range from $6-$20 (depending on how many years we go back). Also name variations or aliases can require multiple searches. Costs typically range from $5-$50 per search.

 

  • Some Statewide criminal and civil searches have surcharges required by the state. For example, a statewide criminal search in New York costs $98. That’s standard for any service provider. Costs typically range from $5-$100 per search

 

  • Some Education and Universities utilize a third-party verification system called National Student Clearing House (NSCH) for education verification services. The fee for these services can range from $10-$30.

 

  • Some Employers utilize a third-party verification system called The Work Number (TWN) for employment verifications. The fee for these services can range between $50-$100.

 

Additional Services:

 

Database Criminal Check – Interns / Generalists / New Entry

A background check through online U.S. public records to identify any criminal activity. Our team will confirm identity of an individual, review addresses history, and search online criminal databases for the last 7 years. This service is a basic criminal search through online databases for individuals that require a minimum background check and do not offer a serious risk that would warrant a Tier I, II, or III background check. The cost is $100 per individual search.

 

Specialty Checks or Verifications

Voyint offers additional services that might be required for specific industry compliance. Listed below are a sample of common add-on checks. Each service can be added for $20 each.

  • Motor Vehicle Searches

  • Professional Reference check (1)

  • Personal Reference check (1)

  • Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) check

  • Office of Inspector General (OIG) exclusion check

 

Credit History Checks

This service is typically reserved for background checks where the subject’s financial history is a factor in the business relationship. This may include, key employee hires, law enforcement, managerial positions, signatory authority, positions with access to personal or confidential information, or renter relationships. The cost is $65 per individual search.

 

International Criminal Search

Voyint can provide a search for international criminal findings for 225+ countries, requested through national or local authorized agents that have access to official court records in-country to identify any instances of criminal conviction reported. This service may have an extended turnaround time. Prices vary by jurisdiction, typically ranging from $50 - $150.

 

Expedited Service

For an urgent request that requires a faster turnaround times, Voyint can prioritize these requests. We cannot guarantee that these services will always be available, but we will do our best to facilitate. Due to the quick turnaround time (approximately 1-3 business days), some court searches and verifications may be reported as unverified. If available, expedited third-party verification services will be utilized. The cost is $200 per request.

Fees and Billing Arrangements:

 

Voyint will only invoice the Customer for work completed and submitted through the Voyint portal. Invoices will be sent to the Customer on a weekly basis for all work completed during that period. Invoice(s) will be sent to Customer’s attention via email, unless Customer instructs otherwise. Any surcharges that apply to a service will be communicated before that specific service is conducted.

 

Service Assumptions:

 

The following assumptions are used to determine the cost of services:

 

  • Voyint consolidates all information found into a summary report for the customer; the report highlights relevant information that should be considered.

  • Any additional surcharges related to services will be charged at-cost. A 10% processing fee will be added for each charge. This includes, but is not limited to, fees by educational institutions, employers, and third party vendors that are utilized for verification services.

  • For domestic (U.S.) services - Given that governmental bodies in some jurisdictions do not aggregate criminal/civil record data or do not offer statewide criminal/civil record searches, information from specific counties in certain states may be limited. Court runner services are available upon request and would incur an additional charge.

  • The addition of any international services may extend the traditional return time of standard proposed packages.
