For $24.95, people will be able to do an instant check of public records that pertain to them, including criminal records in every state. More in-depth screening services will be available such as education and past employment and will cost more and take more time to process. James Lee, ChoicePoint's chief marketing officer, said the check, like getting a credit report, will enable people to know what information exists about them before an em- ON THE WEB ployer does ChoicePoint: a www.choicepoint.com they HotJobs: won't www.hotjobs.com have to do the legwork. "It's the convenience factor, especially with a society as mobile as ours," Lee said. Only people looking for background information about themselves will be allowed to take part.

ChoicePoint says it will not give any of the information to a third party. ChoicePoint says an intricate identity verification system will keep the system secure. Job seekers will be asked a series of questions that only they would know the answers to, such as past addresses, the amount of a mortgage payment on a prior home, the name of their gas provider and their telephone number at a prior address. Job seekers also will have to provide their name, Social Security number and date of birth. If a certain number of questions are missed, the person would have to call ChoicePoint to verify their identity before being allowed to get the background information, Lee said.

He declined to say how many questions a person would have to miss. The information is culled from courthouse records, credit reports, telephone directories, school records and from verifying information with employers, which ChoicePoint employees will do.
