               Withdrawal of Registration Statement on Form 8-A
               File No. 001-31666
               Filed April 11, 2003

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

         First Advantage Corporation ("First Advantage") hereby requests the
withdrawal of the above referenced registration statement, which was erroneously
filed under section 12(b) rather than section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). First Advantage filed a corrected
registration statement under section 12(g) of the Exchange Act on May 12, 2003
(file number 000-50285).

         Please feel free to contact our counsel, Neil W. Rust of White & Case
LLP at (213) 620-7748 if you have any questions concerning this request.
