TEMPERANCE, MICHIGAN (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
North Star Integrity is a new company created to protect people from the growing number of scams by someone using a fake online identity or profile.
While the vast majority of internet users recognize that they have not inherited a large sum of money from a long-lost relative overseas, a common email scam, many people today register with online dating sites, or hire contractors to work in their homes after reading credentials and reviews online.
“There are an increasing number of cases every day in which people have fallen victim to someone using false information to perpetuate online fraud and scams,” notes S. Michael Dorr, CEO and Founder, North Star Integrity. “Whether you are looking to establish a personal relationship with a potential date or develop a business relationship with a contractor, it’s far too easy to fall prey to someone with a perfect online profile, who is actually attempting to drain your finances or, worse, yet, someone with a history of violent crime or abuse.”
North Star Integrity seeks to protect individuals from these situations by offering, for the first time, an opportunity for those who sign up as members the ability to provide their own verified, truthful civil and criminal background information. They can exchange it voluntarily with others in personal or professional situations to establish trust and verification. The service is private and secure.
“If you’re hiring a plumber to work on your home, or bringing a significant other into a house where your children reside,” continues Dorr, “you have the right to know their credentials.”
“We believe this is a unique – and necessary - opportunity for people to protect themselves, and their families, and to possibly enhance their businesses,” explains Dorr. “If you are a contractor, you can choose to share your verified background information with potential customers, giving you an advantage among the competition. Those who are establishing personal relationships can choose to share their information to help establish trust early on.”
Members simply provide their personal information and select their membership plan. Their background report is prepared through a state-of-the-art background-screening process that ensures the accuracy of the data, which is validated, confirmed and disclosed only to the member. The member then reviews and verifies the report, and can share that information with other North Star Integrity members, or with anyone they choose.
“North Star Integrity adds an immediate layer of protection for yourself and your loved ones,” concludes Dorr. “We believe it’s a necessity in today’s online environment. We’re excited to help people connect both personally and professionally with others who share their values of trust and honesty.”
