The first Senior Engineer at Facebook has launched a background check service on, you guessed it, Facebook.

TrueScoop, an Arbor Venture’s product, today announced the release of a new Facebook application which searches through over 20 million records and a million photos for personal and criminal history of anyone, completely free of charge…. This service, which can normally cost upwards to $40 per search, is done completely free and confidentially.

How can a company give away a $40 background check for free? I’m having trouble getting the app to work, will post screenshots once it figures out who I am.
