        Dear List

        The FCRA was amended and took effect Oct. 1, 1997.

        Basically it now requires anyone that acts as a consumer reporting agency
        (ie. PI's who collect and disseminate information for pre-employment
        purposes) must make sure that the end user gets written permission from the
        consumer, prior to performing: criminal checks, drivers license checks,
        character , general reputation, personal characteristics, credit, or mode of
        living which is expected to be used in whole or part for the purpose of
        serving as a factor in establishing eligibility for employment, promotion,
        reassignment, or retention as an employee.

        Adverse Action

        Prior to the person intending to take any adverse action they shall provide
        to the consumer to whom the report relates.
        1 a copy of the report
        2 a description in writing of the rights of the consumer under title
        VI, as prescribed by the Federal Trade Commission under section 609(c)(3).

        There are also limits on how far back the information can be obtained.

        There are many unanswered questions as to how this effects....

        1 Surveillance
        2 Background checks on existing employees
        3 Under Cover operations
        3 Shopping services

        and the list goes on and on and on and on ..... Well you get the idea.

        Any one that is concerned should visit the below Webb site!!!!!!!!

            You are all correct. It (FCRA) is a big problem. NALI is going to be
            involved by rapidly joining forces with virtually all the state investigator
            associations to network and promote letter-writing to the appropriate
            legislators. This one sneaked up on us pretty quickly, and we have to be more
            on top of these knee-jerk responses by congress and legislatures. Jack Reed
            has been appointed for his 5th term as Legislative chair. He and I are going
            to work closely so that information can be rapidly disseminated to NALI's
            Regional Directors and Assistant Regional Directors, and on to the various
            states' associations.

            Jack advises that legislators translate one letter into 500 votes. We can't
            afford high-priced lobbyists, but if we could generate as few as 1000 letters
            on an issue, these politicos would definitely sit up and notice. 5000 letters
            would make them squirm, and 10,000 would make them dance.

            It comes right down to how much effort each individual is willing to put
            forth. If the profession simply sits back and bemoans its fate, we're in
            trouble. If we get involved and encourage others to get similarly involved,
            we can impact the problem.

            How to start? Call your Regional Directors. Offer to serve as an Assistant
            Regional Director (the pay is terrible, but the rewards have the potential of
            being immense). Get involved in raising your own awareness, and that of your
            friends and colleagues. Encourage everyone to DO, not just TALK.
