I actually have experience in implementing both Lexis Nexis and ADP. Lexis Nexis is more flexible, but, both have great APIs.

In my past life, I have built the fraud detection and recovery systems for JP Morgan Chase. Let me know if you need any help or need to discuss anything. Regards, Gaurav Garg

I've used backgroundchecks.com in a past product. Was fine for what we were looking for and relatively cost effective.

@Steve Banfield, did you use the API from backgroundchecks.com? How was the documentation in terms of the different end points, parameters, error conditions, etc?

In other words, can I write tests based on documentation or will I have to feel things out through trial and error?
