Are these reliable and worth the money to check someone out? Anyone use them?
I know some employers use them.
[I sure miss the days when you could lean over
the fence and find out from your neighbor if they
were of good character and judgement.]

Not sure I could stand one of those.

Some are actually legitimate private detective agencies w/contacts to aquire requested info.Others are simply"basement" operations which access online Court Public Records,State Licensing files etc for a fee and relay their findings back to you which may net you nothing.If you want an official records check for a potential employee etc,most states make transcript available from them for token fee,same with FBI..."Character" is often nothing more than a credit check.

They may very well be good if you want some gossip and hearsay about your neighbours but I do believe that the true professional can evade then like a Big Snake slithers through the short grass of your very lawn.

Rajah we use the talerban double naught spy service for such gossip reports and they are free.

Just post something using the suspect's name saying he don't listen to Glenn or Rush and don't trust either one uvum and one of our crossdressing friends will email you a personal analysist of the person in question.

Usually that email is followed by an email from our resident holyman to explain the report to you.

Do you have such free services in Delhi??

Oh Mr. Burrhead, that is most humerous. You are now telling us that the most pregnant Talerban Secretary is a spy amongst our midst? Whom are we to trust in the future????

who mentioned    Posted 06-14-2004 at 19:08:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
anything about somebody being pregnant?

Burrhead    Posted 06-14-2004 at 19:41:18       [Reply]  [No Email]
you musta missed the old post. That is the rumor anyway. Thanks for being on yer toes Rajah. The head secretary is expecting, and Clipper has run off.

Reliable sources say that the most submitted names from here for the new little one were YOsama and YOmama. We have a pink and a blue turbin on standby to go either way.

I know Clipper has "run off" as you say, but I did miss the earlier post about the impregnated secretary. But ta heck with the name of the child, my question is "who's da daddy"

Burrhead    Posted 06-14-2004 at 20:29:12       [Reply]  [No Email]
One dem ole wife tales say it's Clipper's. Him and the talerban head secretary.

I did'nt know about it til somebody else mentioned it but it does explain not hearing from Clipper in so long.

Here's ye a link AT&T sent me to get the new bug out. It takes about 10 minits to run and it deletes the spybots and hijackers.

If ye got winders X ye hafta shut down the system restore before ye scan and it does the rest.

It free and gets some my Norton and Adaware missed.

Yes Burrhead, but what happens if someone has "an intense dislike" for someone. Mighten they give a false repote?

Burrhead    Posted 06-14-2004 at 14:45:54       [Reply]  [No Email]

Funny folks,, I know a detective not far away. I knew the facts on the work he did because it was work he did on me. He had an eloborate story on me that he told me. I wondered how this fool could get a job. He had a vivid immagination..I wonder if he himself believed this story he told me.He had me in Galveston sending flowers.I had not been to Galveston in four years.He had me working with a guy I never heard of as a carpenter. I have not hired out as a carpenter anywhere in my life though I have done my own and my dads long ago. I would first ask that any detective be given a polygraph test before he got the job,,The same thing they refused me to take. I have met some guys doing government background checks on a neighbor or two..I told them I bet they get more gossip than truth.I do trust the FBI more than the locals.
