Human Trafficking

Are you a victim?

If you have been subjected to trafficking and are seeking to block adverse information on your background check report linked to this experience, you can provide “trafficking documentation” when submitting your request to a consumer reporting agency. For victims interested in moving forward with this process, please consider the following:

 

  • Victim Determination Information 

    • Victim determination is generally defined as documentation of a determination that a consumer is a victim of trafficking, made by either:

      • A statement from a Federal, State, or Tribal government entity 

      • A court of competent jurisdiction, which includes certain documents filed in court

      • A  non-governmental organization or human trafficking task force, including victim service providers affiliated with these entities, authorized by a Federal, State, or Tribal government entity

      • A self-attestation by a consumer who identifies as a victim of trafficking that is signed or certified by a Federal, State, or Tribal government entity, court of competent jurisdiction, or an authorized representative of these entities

         

  • Identified adverse items of information

    • Documents that identify items of adverse information should not be furnished by this consumer reporting agency because the items resulted from a severe form of trafficking in persons or sex trafficking. An “adverse item of information” could include records containing derogatory information, such as payment delinquencies or defaults, records of coerced debt, records of criminal arrests and convictions, and records of evictions or non-payment of rent

 

  • Appropriate Proof of Identity 

    • Required to provide the following information: 

      • First Middle Last Name 

      • Any other previously used names and/or aliases 

      • Current and/or recent full address 

      • Social Security Number

      • Date of Birth 

    • Additional Proof of Identity If Needed – Copies of government-issued identification documents, utility bills, and/or other methods of authentication of a person’s identity

 

  • Written submission can be mailed to the following address 

    • C4 Operations Background Check Services 

    • 1201 Edgewood Rd SW Cedar Rapids IA 52404
