Victims of Human Trafficking

At AmeriWide, we are committed to working with victims of human trafficking and complies with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) rule to assist those who are victims of human trafficking.

If you are a victim of human trafficking you can request that specific adverse items not be reported as part of your background check.  The steps of the process are outlined below:

Provide Proof of your Identity by one of the two methods listed below.

  • Provide your full name  (First, Middle, Last) along with any previously used names/aliases, Your Social Security Number and/or your date of birth


  • Provide Copies of government issued identification documents, utility bills, and/or other methods of your identity, you may be asked questions to which you may be expected to know the answer to confirm your identity.

Provide an acceptable Victim Determination statement, which is a document that contains a determination of human trafficking, made by either:

  • A Federal, State, or Tribal governmental entity.
  • A non-governmental member of a human trafficking task force, including victim service providers affiliated with these entities and authorized by a Federal, State or Tribal government entity.
  • A self-attestation by a consumer who identifies as a victim of human trafficking that is signed or certified by a Federal, State or Tribal government entity, court of competent jurisdiction, or an authorized representative of these entities.

Provide the specific items of information in your background check (consumer report) that you believe should not be furnished by a consumer reporting agency because the items are a result of human trafficking.
