is there any way to tell if someone (and who) ran a background

This answer was rated:

is there any way to tell if someone (and who) ran a background check on you? I get spam messages from time to time saying that "someone may have run a background check on you on such-and-such day"
No, there is not really a way to see if a generic background check was run on you. If they ran a credit report on you (usually this would need to be a business), it would show on your credit report.

Most likely, they were just trying to direct you to use their services and this is a regular ploy by spam marketers. They buy a list of email addresses and send out the same generic message, such as the one about someone possibly running a check on you, as a ploy to get you to sign up and pay for their services.

All the best. If you need followup, just click on REPLY TO EXPERT. Have a wonderful rest of the week.
