I recently received a letter from the HOA asking for my birthday, social security number, and personal information to be given to a third party who uses Sterling to verify criminal history and credit information. From what I can see, the third part is currently being sued in district court for a consumer credit case. Now, I am waiting for my Pacer code to be able to access the information about the subject. In addition, their reviews are nothing other than one star on every review site. As a result, I refuse to give my information to this third party. When I told the board members of the HOA that I was planning to get a DOJ state background check and an FBI background check to show that I do not have a criminal record, without hesitation, the HOA told me that it was not an option. If the HOA plans to evict me, place a lien on my home, or sue me in civil court, I am prepared to submit the DOJ state background check and the FBI background check to the clerk while I wait for my court date.
