Is it possible to get an official criminal record check without the person's consent or knowledge? Police say that person has to come in themselves in person to get a check done. Someone I know invested in a deal. I believe that his partner has been convicted multiple times of fraud, (and this deal is another fraud). Ideally I would like to get a printout of his convictions, even if I have to pay a fee. I could then warn my acquaintance and have something tangible that backs up what I am telling him. A google search of the other partners name did not bring up any news stories about him.
