Dear Mr. *****,
Thank you for notifying us of your customer service experience with American DataBank. I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations. American Databank makes every effort to ensure our customers receive their completed background checks in a timely manner. Unfortunately, the timing of these reports is at the mercy of the State and County courts. That being said, we do everything in our power to manage expectations along the way, for both the school and the student, whenever possible.
Here is what your account shows took place:
Background check order placed within American DataBank’s system. Unfortunately, it was submitted past the daily deadline for Illinois state processing so it could not be submitted until the following day.
Background check submitted to the state of Illinois. Background checks submitted to the state of Illinois have a turnaround time ranging from instantaneous to 30 days.
Illinois responded with a tracking number and notified American Databank that the turnaround time on this order would be approximately 30 days.
You called in and requested the status of your background check. At that time, our staff member explained the 30 day pending status from the state of Illinois and that we are at the mercy of their timeline.
You called back and spoke with another representative. Your order was still in pending status with the state of Illinois at that point. This and the 30 day turnaround time beginning on 3/12 was explained. Unhappy with this explanation, you asked to escalate the conversation to our Operations Manager who explained that we were unable to expedite the criminal search for you as we are at the mercy of the courts. The state of Illinois does not allow inquiries until they are out of the 30 day turnaround time, but she offered to contact the state of Illinois on your behalf at that time if you so desired. She also offered to call St Louis Community College to explain the pending status.
We contacted the school administrator that will review your application and he was made aware of the status of your order. The school administrator stated that he completely understood and accepted this information.
Your background check was completed. The results were delivered to your school on this date and were immediately made available for download via your online account.
You called in at which point our staff member confirmed your background check report was completed and manually forwarded a copy of the report to you.
You mentioned in your complaint that, in addition to phone calls, American Databank provided "unprofessional responses" to your email requests. We were unable to find any record of email correspondences with you, however, every attempt was made to manage expectations when you called in.
We are sorry you did not receive the answers you were looking for, but I hope this clarifies our responses to your inquiries. If you have additional questions, we'd be happy to help so please don't hesitate to call.

The conversations between myself and American data bank were less than informative with no exact time to completion. Most replies from staff where maybe likely were not sure. I stand by my claims. The background check was completed ,after several calls leading to stress with uncertainty of who how and when my background check would be completed in a time sensitive matter. I would not use there service again , also I felt because the matter did not effect them directly they were less than concerened.
