Does anybody know the entity that is now keeping tabs on US Merchant Marines. It used to be Marine Index Bureau. Then they shifted the blame to Pretiem services who then sold out to Hirecheck who now redirects you to First Advantage. When MIB was running the show you could call up and request a copy of your “confidential” file by faxing in a copy of your ID and typing out an official request and then signing at the bottom.
Now you get sent on a wild goose chase with 4 different companies all passing the buck to the next. When you go to their websites they only have a log in for employers that are willing to pay for their services.
The last time I requested my MIB Hirecheck said they had no file on me. But then when I went to get another job Higman Marine had a copy of my MIB. They had some damaging information that I was not allowed to view or dispute.
When MIB was running the show you could request an investigation of anything you believed to be untrue or unfair. And you could also add up to a 100 word statement of you own to dispute any bogus crap in your file.
I don’t think it is by accident that I am getting sent on a wild goose chase. And if an employer can gain access to priveledged info by me signing off on a consumer report release then shouldn’t I be able to view this file or at least be given the reporting agency’s information so I may contact them for a copy of said report?
That is after all the law under the fair credit reporting act. And freedom of information act.
But it seems that the coonass mafia has again found loophole to keep you from accessing their blacklist by sending you on a wild goose chase.
Internet searches only lead to dead web pages or login pages a potential employee is not allowed to access. And when you do chase down the culprit they tell you they do not have a file on you. This may be true but some division there of that you can not seem to access or contact obvioulsy does. “I am sorry, Sir. I am not sure what you are referring to.” By God some one knows what the hell I am refering to because they know more about me than I know about myself before I even sit down in the frickin hot seat.
