About the Company

Backstory Screening Services was started when Sterling, an owner of rental properties, found he was unable to obtain solid background information on potential tenants. After an exhaustive search, Sterling affiliated with Background Screeners of America, a database provider. The company was founded in 2011 to assist employers and landlords by offering credit reports, criminal background checks, education and licensing verification, driver license reports and eviction records.
