WEST PALM BEACH - Jan 7 - MyMatchChecker.com allows clients to run a background check on their next date. The 2-year-old site was relaunched in Apr by Andrew Scott, a former police chief, and Robert Buchholz, a retired police captain. Prices range from $9.95 for a basic background check to $64.95 for an advanced search. Most dating sites do not screen members to make sure they are not felons, sexual predators or married. They contend that state and county databases are often incomplete, so claims of screening can give members a false sense of security. "All of the information that we acquire is in the public domain. There is no invasion of privacy," Buchholz said. Buchholz and Scott plan to expand their business by offering a subscription to the site and partnering with dating websites.
