Background Check Fraud in Manila

Why I do Manila searches by myself.
I've been going to Manila and doing court checks for decades and as of now I still haven't seen a Researcher (that sells to pre-employment screening companies) that does real background searches.
For example, the last 2 companies I tested failed miserably. One sent me a fraudulent clearance certificate and the other just failed to get the simplest search done at two courts in the Metro area.
These were NPABS APAC members! But it is not NAPBS' fault. NAPBS is not the police.
Other companies, including USA based researchers and resellers that say they have a footprint in Manila have been unable to get me the easiest type of document after bragging to me how great they are!
Forget about NBI clearance verifications. You can do them for free yourself online, but they only return verifications that are current.
The NBI does not sell clearance certificates to 3rd parties.
I used to get raw data from the NBI but their results only led to more unnecessary searches that usually the NBI applicant would do.
This is not a matter of "vendor selection," a term use loosely by NAPBS members. It is a matter of knowing what they're doing.
