It’s Time to Compare…


     Hello, Colleague.     Our newsletter is an on-going service designed to continue to educate the business community to combat the threats of negligent hiring, workplace violence, and other human resource issues that arise in our business world today. 

     It’s been a crazy few weeks!  That being said, below are some crazy criminal stories.  We hope you take a moment, sit back, and enjoy.  Also, it’s time to do your due diligence to protect your company, your staff, and/or your personal life.  In this e-letter you will find cost comparisons between Argus and its competitors for Social Security Number Verification and National Criminal Searches.  Be sure to know who you’re really hiring; we can help.  Have a great Autumn!



What not to say to a Police Officer:

“Hey, you must've been doing' about 125 mph to keep up with me! Good job!”


Three strikes and you're out!

A man in Fort Collins, Colorado, robbed the same 7-Eleven store twice in one day.  He told the clerk during the second robbery that he'd be back in a few hours to rob it a third time.  Sure enough, he returned a few hours later and was arrested by detectives still in the store investigating the first and second robberies.

R.C. Gaitlin, 21, walked up to two patrol officers who were showing their squad car computer equipment to children in a Detroit neighborhood. When he asked how the system worked, the officers asked him for a piece of identification. Gaitlin gave them his driver's license, they entered it into the computer, and moments later they arrested Gaitlin because information on the screen showed that Gaitlin was wanted for a two-year-old armed robbery in St. Louis, Missouri.



A car in St. Louis hit a bus carrying five passengers, but by the time police arrived on the scene, fourteen pedestrians had boarded the bus and had begun to complain of whiplash injuries and back pain.


A motorist was unknowingly caught in an automated speed trap that measured his speed using radar and photographed his car. He later received, in the mail, a ticket for $40 and a photo of his car.  Instead of payment, he sent the police department a photograph of $40.  Several days later, he received a letter from the police that contained another picture - of handcuffs.
