There are several places online that offer services that lookup people by their Social Security Number, or SSN, and provide background information, personal records and even contact information, such as People Finders, Intelius, People Records and USA Trace. The services run a trace on the person by using their SSN and each report back various information including criminal reports, credit reporting data, marriages, past employment and contact information.
