Ok, thank you for your response, I don't like it, but I understand. Seems that more care should be taken by these company's and they should be held accountable in some way when they don't. At this point we have no way of knowing how many other companys use LexisNexis (many I suspect) and how many job opportunites she has missed out on because of their flawed background checks. I don't even know where to start to get them to straighten it out. When I called Lexis to discuss they of course let me know they can't discuss with me due to legal issues and the Privacy Act, now they want to protect her!
