Internet Dating Investigations
Meeting a potential love interest online is a very sensitive situation but concern for safety is completely justified and in fact, admirable. Your concern is our concern; all background investigations are private and remain confidential because their only purpose is to help you, our client, understand this person better. According to Online Dating Magazine, 17% of couples who have married in the past three years met through an online dating service. In addition, one out of every five singles in the United States has dated someone they met online.
Why do I need a private investigator?
There are many dangerous situations that can occur and have occurred as a result of online dating. People show up with a different identity or intention than what was stated on their profile. It is very easy to provide false information via the internet; you can be almost whoever you want to be when using an online site. The majority of people lie in their online dating profiles. While some of these lies are seemingly harmless, others may be concealing a dangerous truth. Criminals and predators now actively join social networking and online dating sites to set up fake profiles.
Know Who You are Meeting.
The concept of online dating is appealing to so many people because it gives us access to potential interests we would otherwise have never known the existence of. And wonderful, compatible people meet each other all the time. However, the temptation to create an identity that is void of one’s weaknesses is so strong and many online dating profiles are filled with small adjustments to increase matches, however for some, those adjustments cover up criminal histories of felony charges.
Even when someone is not necessarily dangerous, their lies can lead the subject into an awkward or uncomfortable situation. For example someone who posts pictures from ten years ago. Or someone who omits a drug or gambling habit. While this is not reason enough to do away with online dating altogether, it should cause one to want more information before allowing themselves to be put in a potentially dangerous or harmful situation.
Since Colorado law states that private investigations are to be kept confidential, the individual being researched will not find out about the investigation unless you tell them. At Elite Professional Investigations we have the tools and means to give you confidence in the individual you are seeking to meet.
