IF “you knew then, what you know now”…would you have done things differently? 

It’s funny how you think you know someone; and when you least expect it, they throw you a curve ball!   They looked good on paper, had a firm handshake and a great smile and everyone agreed they were such nice people.  Now the deal has gone south and you're reminded of that old adage, “Don’t judge a book by its cover!” 

And now you’re asking yourself, “what did I miss and how do I avoid this in the future?

What you need to know depends on what you are trying to do:

  • Evaluate a prospective borrower/strategic partner/supplier/vendor/customer? 
  • Update your knowledge of an existing/acquired customer?
  • Identify assets & liabilities for recovery of debt or Execution on a Judgment?

What matters most?

  • Turnaround time
  • Costs
  • Convenience
  • Accuracy
  • Completeness

Think about this:

Consider the Source.  

  • Where did you get your information?  (Self-reported, database or direct investigation)
  • How current and complete was the information provided?  (Database services report what is uploaded to their system or culled-from the internet, but it doesn’t report what isn’t uploaded and many offices are not set up to do so.)
  • Has the information been verified?  (Unless you hired someone to investigate the information for you, you are opting to take it “as-is”.)

If you want the FACTS, hire a licensed investigator. Big Data and database is only as good as the information loaded into the system. 

Data Entry errors, limited update schedules, limited sources plus no verification = incomplete/incorrect data.
