Has anyone ever used a service such as the one offered by fingerscan.ca?

I'm in Korea, need to get a CRC done quickly, and this seems to be the only way as they claim to be able to take your paper fingerprints, digitize them, and submit them to the RCMP. This should effectively cut down the waiting time for RCMP checks by months!

I spoke with the Canadian consulate here in Seoul on the phone today and the consular services employee told me that they knew of someone who had successfully used this service and gotten their RCMP check done very quickly.

I have been able to find one person say in these forums that he/she had used their service (while in Toronto) and that it worked well.

BUT, why aren't there more people talking about and or using this service if it's legit??

Can you give me the contact info of this service, please.

I thought the RCMP's website states they won't accept out of country fingerprints, but maybe they company is in Canada and submits them?!

the website is:
http://www.fingerscan.ca/

World­wide Foren­sic Ser­vices Inc.
Canada Life Cen­tre
55 Town Cen­tre Court Street, Suite 642 (sixth floor)
Scar­bor­ough (Toronto), ON M1P 4X4 Canada
Phone: (416) 915‑7139
FAX: (416) 546‑7773

You're right, the RCMP explicitly states that it cannot accept electronic fingerprints from outside the country, however, this company is located in Canada. I have sent an email to the RCMP office to see if this is indeed a legitimate alternative to speed things up. I'm also going to call the company myself right now to see what they have to say.

I still find it hard to believe that hardly anyone here in Korea seems to have heard of and or used this service which makes me think it could be a hoax. However, there are a couple of threads where ppl say they have used it and the consulate here in Seoul did unofficially recommend it gave me their contact information.

Spoke with them on the phone, and I remain optimistically skeptical.

Here is their supposed accreditation: http://www.fingerscan.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/RCMP-1.pdf

again, hard to believe that no one has really heard of this service...

After waiting a week for a response the RCMP has finally confirmed that the above company has been certified and is legit! No more waiting for 2-3 months for crcs now if u dont want to and or need expedited service!
