Why can’t you match criminal records by social security number?
Court records are considered public records which mean they may be accessed by the general public for research or reference. Due to public and political pressure over fears of identity theft, most courts either black out or do not enter social security numbers in their court records. Some courts only show the last four digits of the social security number, not the entire number.
What do I need to provide to BackTrack to do criminal records search?
Since most criminal records are stored by name, a full name with the correct spelling is necessary for the search. Additional identifiers, including other names used, a date of birth and addresses, are also important. It is very important to provide as much information as possible in order to insure proper identification of criminal records.
