Kroll, USIS, OPM investigators charged with falsifying background checks

Washington Post reported that employees for Office of Personnel Management as well as subcontractors Kroll and USIS, which handle the background inquiries for more than 100 federal agencies, lied about interviews they never conducted and submitted false statements.
In the race to the low price swamp, it has long been suspected that some firms offer background checks at prices they cannot afford without cutting corners ( "national criminal check"' for $4.95 anyone?). A shabby product is the logical result.
