Angie's list does back ground checks on us.

Why is Angie’s List requiring a criminal background check? 

 Because it just makes sense: • For 18 years, Angie’s List has been a trusted source for information on
local home and healthcare services. • Our members expect the best from the highly rated
service providers on Angie’s List and demand increasingly more information,
including criminal background checks, on the service providers with whom they do
business. • Service providers have long requested more ways to differentiate
themselves from their competitors. By showing that you passed a criminal background check, you will enter into a
more exclusive group from which members can choose. Who is running the background check? The background
check currently is performed by American Business Services (ABS), a third-party screening company.
Upon processing the check, ABS will provide Angie’s List with a simple “pass” or “fail” designation.
Angie’s List and its members will never see any content from background check results.
American Business Services  How does an individual fail the background check?
A failed background check is one that finds one or more of the following:
• Any violent or theft conviction at a felony level in the last 7 years
• Any sexual felony conviction or on a sexual offender registry at any time (no time limit)
• Any pending felony charges involving any of the two types above Remember, ABS will provide Angie’s List with only a pass or fail designation. Any individual that fails a background check will be notified by email from a representative at Angie’s List. Who is required to complete a background check? Angie’s List will require a background check on the owner, relevant manager or principal of the business organization appearing on Angie’s List. Service providers will not be eligible to advertise, promote ecommerce deals, or become eligible for the 2013 Super Service Award unless they authorize and pass a background check. Remember, Angie’s List will not receive this specific information, as the results only communicate a pass or fail status of the individual. Any individual that fails a background check will be notified by email from a representative at Angie’s List. Angie’s List requires an updated background check annually. __________________________________________________________________________________
