Private Investigation: Solving Online Dating Frauds
The internet has gone about to make our lives so much easier, so convenient. So much so, that we’ve taken dating online as well. Behind that computer device, it’s all comfortable and relaxing. But is it really safe?
Millions of Americans visit online dating sites and public forums in the hope to find the right soul-mate. Little are we aware that the internet is the breeding ground for con artists who are waiting to feed on the innocence of people, in search for easy bucks. According the FBI report, their target is usually women over the age of 40, who are divorced, widowed, and/or disabled. However, this is no hard and fast rule. In truth, their potential victims are pretty much every age group and demographic.
Are you allowing yourself to be courted by a catfish? It’s time you take a stand, and find out if the person you’re speaking to every hour of the day is really someone who cares deeply for you. Hire online private investigator services to uncover the truth. Here’s how they will help you:
Get A Comprehensive Background Check
He or she says they’re from Miami? Divorced? Single? Employed? There is absolutely no way you would be able to gauge the truth in what they say. Can you really place that much faith into the words of a man or woman you’ve met online, and have never personally? In some cases, individuals may feel that they’re being paranoid when making this move. But it’s better to be safe than sorry. Running a thorough background check will ensure if everything they’ve said was in fact true.
Helps Save You from Being Victim of a Major Scam
There is only one reason these individuals trolling the internet are looking for. Their purpose isn’t just fun – in fact, the ulterior motive is money. Over time, they aim to forge closer bonds with you, becoming your confidant, professing instant feelings of love and affection. Next, they make plans to visit you; but due to some ‘unfortunate and tragic’ event, they always fail to show up. And finally, for the final act, they will request you for money (some medical, financial emergencies), and once you wire the money, you may never hear from them again.
Saves You the Heartache
Other than the loss of money from the scam, it is often the loss that is more painful. You don’t have to put yourself through the distress of being part of a vicious and heartless game of unfeeling and faceless individuals.
