In today’s world, background checks have become an essential part of various processes, such as employment, rental agreements, and credit applications. Unfortunately, errors in these background checks can have severe consequences on individuals’ lives. 

As such, we need to discuss NNA background check errors and how our team at Fair Credit can help you fight back against these errors. We’ll walk you through the ins and outs of NNA background checks and what you can do to protect yourself.

Understanding NNA Background Checks

Before we dive into the errors that can occur in an NNA background check, let’s first understand what NNA is and how it operates. The National Notary Association (NNA) is an organization that provides resources, support, and training for notaries across the United States. 

One of the services they offer is background checks, which are often required for notaries to work in specific industries or with certain clients.

NNA background checks generally include information such as criminal records, employment history, and credit reports. These checks are meant to ensure that notaries are trustworthy and reliable, but they can also impact other aspects of your life if errors are present.

What Are Some Common Errors in NNA Background Checks?

Understanding the potential errors in NNA background checks is crucial in order to take appropriate action if inaccuracies are discovered. Let’s take a closer look at some common errors and the impact they can have on your life.

Incorrect Personal Information

Mistakes in personal information are widespread in background checks. These inaccuracies can include:

  • Name misspellings or incorrect name variations
  • Incorrect Social Security numbers
  • Wrong birthdates
  • Inaccurate addresses or previous residences
  • Mismatched or incorrect phone numbers

While these errors may seem minor, they can lead to more significant issues, such as mistaken identity or the merging of your records with someone else’s. This can ultimately affect your employment prospects, loan applications, or housing opportunities.

Outdated or Expunged Criminal Records

Criminal records that should have been removed, updated, or sealed can still appear in your NNA background check. Common issues include:

  • Expunged or sealed records still being reported
  • Charges that were dismissed or resulted in a not-guilty verdict
  • Incorrect or outdated information on convictions, such as incorrect charges or sentences
  • Juvenile records that should have been sealed

These errors can damage your reputation and limit your opportunities, as potential employers, landlords, or lenders may view you as a risk based on inaccurate information.

Employment and Education History Inaccuracies

Mistakes in your employment or education history can also occur in NNA background checks, leading to potential misunderstandings about your qualifications or experience. These errors can include:

  • Incorrect job titles or descriptions
  • Inaccurate employment dates or gaps in employment
  • Listing jobs you never held or omitting jobs you did hold
  • Falsely claiming you were terminated or left a job under unfavorable circumstances
  • Incomplete or incorrect education records, such as degrees, certifications, or institutions attended

These inaccuracies can lead to missed job opportunities or difficulties in obtaining promotions, as employers may question your reliability or qualifications based on the erroneous information.

Being aware of these common errors in NNA background checks allows you to take a proactive approach in reviewing your records and taking action to correct any inaccuracies. This will help you protect your reputation and ensure that you’re fairly represented in any situation where a background check is required.
