Does my live-in girlfriend have to submit to a background check if my car is stolen?

My car was stolen and my insurance agent told her she needed to submit to a background check so that they could see if she had any prior record of car theft/fraud, etc...

We are not married and have no joint accounts or legal anything together. Is this legal? Is this ethical? We live in Minnesota.


Ethical? We don't see what it would be unethical. If she has nothing on her record, why worry about it?

Give the insurance company what they need to pay the claim.

She is a member of your household (married or not), and they can inquire as to those issues.

Good Luck
