bankruptcy report


As you can see the person I did a search on has filed for bankruptcy. The bankruptcy report lists the person’s name, when they filed for bankruptcy and what type of bankruptcy it was. Some other records and reports that we have (depending on the state) will list the docket number, the amount the person filed bankruptcy on, judgment date, the address of the person and some other details. But here we have a bankruptcy report on file for this person that shows they did file for bankruptcy in 2011. This was a very easy search and took me less than 2 minutes to check. Once again, accessing public record databases online proves to be one of the fastest and easiest ways to get information about someone. Don’t forget once you’re in the member’s area you can conduct unlimited searches. You can find people’s phone number, run a criminal history check on people, find emails, see if someone went to jail and more.
