Online Dating Investigations
Why Online Dating Investigations are vital.
With online dating so popular, you would imagine it would be easy to meet a significant other nowadays, right? Wrong. There are 40 million Americans using online dating websites. That is a lot of profiles to sift through. If you happen to find a potential match, it is understandable to be excited. You must also be smart though. Before your heart gets too invested in someone, look into Online Dating Investigations.
A whopping 53% of people lie on their online dating profile. Being dishonest about age, appearance, and income is one thing, but 10 percent of all new profiles are actually fake. Yes, completely phony, yet carefully created to accomplish a mission of fraud. This is a massive amount of deceit occurring. It is only wise to look into online dating investigations to ensure the person you meet is sincere and, for that matter, “real”.
Internet dating scams are a legitimate threat to all participants. The FBI issued a warning to users (please see link below) last year. The best line of defense is to conduct online dating investigations to avoid any fraud or possible criminal activity. Criminals know online dating sites are an ideal way to take advantage of (possibly vulnerable) users. Our suggestion is to look into online dating investigations PRIOR to any emotional attachment. These scammers are professionals at forming bonds or connections, sometimes emailing and chatting for weeks or months prior to asking for anything in return. By this time, it may be too late to think clearly, to realize you should be performing online dating investigations on him/her.
Online dating investigations help to reveal a person’s true identity. Only when you know this can you really begin a relationship. In the meantime, here is some information you should know about the most common scams:
The Basic Scam: after establishing a “trusting relationship”, you are asked to send money to help your new interest. More hardships arise and you are asked to send more.
The Money Laundering Scam: Like in many scams, your new interest will be out of town (this is a red flag, by the way), and you will be asked to either cash checks for him/her or to forward a package in their absence. Your act of kindness actually made you an unknowing participant of criminal activity by sending stolen merchandise or cashing phony checks.
Extortion and/or Scandal Scams: After an online relationship has grown close, the scammer will casually direct the conversations to a more intimate level. In some cases, photos are exchanged; in other cases, conversations are recorded. The material is then posted on public sites and, to have it removed, you must pay.
Perhaps you are already in an established relationship; it could relatively new, long-term, or even a “long lost love” you are hoping to find, but something about the relationship leaves you feeling unsettled. If it is becoming an issue that you need resolved, it would be beneficial to speak with an impartial yet knowledgeable expert.
As private investigators, our job is to uncover the truth. We know when surveillance is the best route and we have state of the art equipment to do it properly. We also have the ability to conduct comprehensive background checks if you have concerns over someone’s honesty or past history. If you are worried your partner is being unfaithful via social media, we have investigations geared directly towards these platforms. If you are hoping to reconnect with “the one that got away”, we are able to locate him/her. Whatever questions you have about your relationship status, we can get you answers.
Once we obtain the information you need, we can offer sound judgment on your next step. If we locate your long lost love, we can let you know if he is now living with someone else or appears to be single. If we do surveillance on a suspicious partner and discover that she is cheating, we can obtain video evidence that will hold up in court. If your new boyfriend suspiciously never invites you to his place, we can inform you of who else lives at his residence. Whatever your relationship situation, if you need help getting answers, there is no question that giving us a call will only help you.
