What does it mean to be a VERIFIED member on OpportunityZone.com?

OpportunityZone.com verifies government officials before placing them on this website. Not all applicants pass the verification process, and we are not paid by members in any way for verified badges. The entire verification process is performed by OpportunityZone.com staff members based in Irvine, California.

We perform a general background check on the member by using BeenVerified.com’s online background check tool. Refer to the disclaimer on BeenVerified.com for details since BeenVerified.com is not a comprehensive database and can miss certain records.

If we encounter any serious criminal violations on BeenVerified.com, this disqualifies the applicant from obtaining the verified badge from OpportunityZone.com. For elected officials, appointed staff or hired employees of an agency, a staff member on our team uses best efforts to verify the government official’s identity.

The verified badge does not mean or represent that the government official has experience or specializes in opportunity zones. Please consult the state bar, state board of accountancy or other government-based sites for more information on a particular government official. Also, use your own diligence to vet any professionals on our website, we don’t make any representations of the qualifications of the professionals listed.
