What is KarmaScore?
KarmaScreen’s proprietary technology helps predict how safe and reliable your client is, by taking their information and analyzing it. You can use each client’s KarmaScore to decide whether you want to accept their screening or booking requests.
KarmaScores are calculated from many different pieces of information. Each client’s KarmaScore considers both positive and negative information from their screening information. A no-show (not showing up for an appointment) will lower their KarmaScore, but passing reference checks will raise their KarmaScore.
How is KarmaScore calculated?
To calculate their KarmaScore, we automatically scan information from various public and private people-search and blacklists, such as State and Federal Sex Offender Registries (US-only), domain name WHOIS, reverse phone number, social media profile, and email look-ups. In addition to scanning public and private databases, we also verify their company, work email address, work profile, reference checks with companions they’ve met in the past, and more.
Our proprietary algorithm analyzes all that information and assigns a KarmaScore. KarmaScores are between 0 and 100, with 0 being the highest risk, and 100 being the lowest risk. For example, a client you have white listed is automatically 100, because you have seen and vouched for them yourself.
KarmaScores can change over time as we receive different information. For example, a client can receive a KarmaScore of 60 when they first enter their information. When they verify their email address, theur KarmaScore goes up to 70. A few hours later, one of their references reject them, and their KarmaScore goes down to 55.
How to use KarmaScore
You need to use your gut instinct to judge whether your potential date is safe, or not. Each client’s KarmaScore is just a predictor of their behavior. Do not rely solely on KarmaScore for your safety.
