Come on, man
Were you actually expecting a list of names here?
I’m not about to start mud-slinging.
But I will show you how to let the facts speak for themselves and how you can do a FREE background check on anyone you like in Ecuador.
Especially helpful before you do a bigger business deal with someone from or in Ecuador.
Within seconds you can freely see their entire criminal record (if they have one), specifically what they have been convicted of and even some legal matters they were involved in yet not necessarily convicted (as Ecuador isnt necessarily an ‘innocent-until-proven-guilty’ country). You can even see things like if they’ve gotten seriously behind on child support payments or if they’ve been involved in any kind of fraud in the past.
In fact, it’s commonplace for businesses in Ecuador to check someone out in this manner before hiring them.
All you need to do the background check is their “cedula” number (thats the official, mandatory ID card in Ecuador).
Then go to the site http://www.ministeriointerior.gob.ec/certificado-de-antecedentes-penales/
Once on the site under “datos del solicitante” you’ll need to put your information.
Then under “datos de la persona a consultar” you’ll need to input the full names and cedula number of the person youd like to check out and click CONSULTAR. Thats it, on the next screen their criminal history will appear or a message will state they have no criminal history!
Now, no one can hide from you.
Especially helpful in real estate purchases where before the deal goes through the seller and buyer have to exhange copies of their IDs to write up the new deed (escritura).
