BureauReport – REPORT DEBTORS TO CREDIT REPORTING AGENCIES
                                           Tired of the debtor enjoying a pristine credit score when he
                                           owes you (or your client) perhaps a substantial amount of
                                           money? Derogatory credit information often results in a
                                           significant drop in credit scores, and if the debtor is seeking a
                                           loan or financing, it may put pressure on them to settle the
                                           outstanding obligation. We report the delinquent obligation to
                                           two of the major U.S. consumer credit networks, which will
                                           start to appear on the subject’s credit reports after a required
                                           thirty day delay.


BureauReport (individual subjects only)                        $125 per reported obligation
Turnaround time                                                3-4 business days (30 day delay to appear on reports)

                                                          Our most complete and comprehensive
                                                               asset search investigation

                                                    Includes our comprehensive Level 3A search, plus
                                                        on-site surveillance and field inquiries by a
                                                                 professional investigator

PERMISSIBLE PURPOSE REQUIRED TO CONDUCT SEARCH (see later in catalog)
Our new Level 4A search is designed for those large dollar judgment and debt-collection cases,
where you need as much information as possible on the debtor or search subject.

This search can be ordered on either an individual subject or a business entity. The search starts
off with the included appropriate Level 3A search – both the individual Level 3A and business
Level 3A searches are described later in this catalog.

The search results are analyzed by our senior investigators, and any additional inquiries
suggested by the Level 3A search are conducted by our experienced investigators and
researchers.

Then, we will make arrangements for, and coordinate with, a professional investigator in the
subject’s locale to visit the area of the individual’s residence, or business location if the search is
being conducted on a business entity, and conduct surveillance and field inquiries to develop as
much information as possible with regard to the debtor.

          Results of these field inquiries will obviously vary from case-to-case, but might
          Include information such as:
               Photographs of subject’s residence, or business location
               Photographs and/or descriptions of material assets in the vicinity of the residence
                  or business (expensive cars, trucks, machinery or equipment, etc.
               Information of condition of property, neighboring entities, nearby banks and
                  financial institutions, etc.
               Up to 6 hours of surveillance, which might include following subject to their place
                  of employment, following delivery vehicles of a business to identify clients,
                  identifying employees or key personnel, following subject or company personnel
                  to banks and financial institutions, etc.

This search is not for routine collection matters – instead, it is designed to provide you with
detailed information to solve those difficult-to-collect, high dollar judgment and debt recovery
cases.

    Field inquiries and surveillance will be conducted by licensed private investigators in those jurisdictions which provide for
  state licensing of investigators. In those jurisdictions that do not provide such state licensing, we will utilize the services of an
                               established firm providing investigative services in the subject’s locale.

        with brokerage firms, or, the Stock Ownership search, which attempts to identify stocks

CRIMINAL HISTORY SEARCH
                               Although an on-site search of court records is always best, this
                               inexpensive database search may be useful in identifying criminal
                               felony and misdemeanor convictions. Please note that some
                               jurisdictions may not report arrests that did not result in a conviction,
                               and some databases may redact arrests/convictions that antedate the
                               date of the search by more than seven years.




Criminal history search (state courts)             $75 per state
Criminal history search (federal courts)           $95 per state

        PERMISSIBLE PURPOSE REQUIREMENTS
In accordance with various state financial privacy laws, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair
Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, almost all of the asset searches
described in this catalog require a PERMISSIBLE PURPOSE before we can accept your request
to conduct the search in question. Sorry, NO exceptions can be made to this requirement.

Generally, a permissible purpose is deemed to exist when an asset search is requested for the
following purpose(s):

       To assist in the collection of a judgment, debt, unpaid child-support, or other financial
        obligation for which the search subject is responsible
       If a court order has been issued authorizing a search of the subject’s assets
       In conjunction with a credit transaction involving the search subject, which may include
        the extension of credit, the review of an existing account, or to determine if the subject
        continues to meet the terms, obligations or requirements of the credit account
       In a business relationship between the parties, to assess the ability of the search
        subject to satisfy the financial requirements and obligations of an existing or proposed
        business relationship, including the ability of the search subject to satisfy any claims for
        loss, injury or damages that may result from the search subject’s failure to properly
        and/or adequately discharge the duties and obligations of the said business relationship
       For use in assessing a business transaction, such as an offer to settle a claim for
        injuries, damages, costs or other expenses arising from a tort. In general, the search
        subject must derive a potential benefit from the transaction. As such, in tort settlement
        cases, it is generally required that (a) a settlement offer has been made by the search
        subject, or a party representing the interests of the search subject (such as their insurer),
        (b) that the claim(s) for damages, injuries, losses, etc., exceed the proposed settlement
        amount, and (c) if the proposed settlement were to be accepted, a benefit will inure to the
        search subject in that they would be released from liability for claims over and above the
        proposed settlement amount. (Note: It is not necessary that the settlement offer be
        accepted before conducting the search. The purpose of the investigation is to assist in
        determining the economic viability of the settlement offer made by the search subject)
       If the subject has consented to a search of their assets. In most cases, we require
        proof of identity in the form of satisfactory government-issued photo identification



In some cases, we may require that the client provide documentation to substantiate their
permissible purpose. Accordingly, it may be necessary for the client to provide us with copies of
judgments, contracts, unpaid invoices, credit applications, court orders, etc.

Furthermore, we may require that the client provide a written certification of their permissible
purpose. If requested, the necessary certification form can be found at our web site at
http://www,CheckmateReports.com/permissible.pdf. If necessary, this document should be
completed and returned to us by fax at 800/203-5550.

If you should have any questions with regard to these permissible purpose requirements, or if you
would like to discuss your particular case with one of our senior investigators, please contact our
office at 800/675-6636.
