Didn't know how to title this thread. I had a lady show up at my door and ask me about a neighbor. Said she was a background check person with some government agency, flashed some badge and asked questions about the guy that lives next to me. I don't know the guy, see him walking his dog and that's about it and after telling her this she started asking stuff like, "any unusual activity.....drugs, terrorist behavior, etc". What in the hell is "terrorist behavior" anyway? Odds are if I could spot something terroristic about the guy, you people would probably already know......hopefully. Anyone else had this happen? I didn't know background checks went this in depth. Knocking on the doors of neighbors and stuff? Is this pretty standard if you are applying for a position within the government? Furthermore, should I tell this guy about it? I mean, if he's shooting for a job he might like to know but what if he's a suspected nut job? I probably won't tell him because I don't know the guy at all as I've only lived in my current place for like 6 months but part of me wants to let him know.
