Dating Fraud

Online dating has exploded in recent years, going from a fringe phenomenon to a popular and almost mainstream way to meet partners. Thousands of dating sites now exist online, and many people now use these sites as a welcome alternative to meeting someone in a bar or club.

This online dating phenomenon has literally taken the world by storm and has changed many people’s lives for the better, allowing them to meet like for like individuals who are after the same thing. However, most positive things come with a negative, and online dating is no different.

As this sector continues to grow and infiltrate more and more people’s lives, so does dating fraud. Unfortunately, a lot of the time it goes undetected. However, we believe our vast experience and trail blazing knowledge concerning fraud and the internet has put us at the front of the pack when it comes to dealing with online dating fraud.

How can we help with online dating fraud?

lobal are consistently being hired to investigate online dating horror story after horror story. Through these investigations, we have built up a great deal of experience and are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the examination of romance in the age of online dating. This means we can be trusted to reveal the shocking reality of the person behind the keyboard and will always uncover worrying discrepancies if they exist.

There are always going to be people who lie. Fact. Unfortunately, with the advent of online dating, it is even easier to lie because the chances of the lie being discovered are a great deal less than in the ‘real world’. We are sad to say that we are continually discovering new lies in each investigation we take on, from the lies that come from the ‘restless married’ to those that come from men pretending to be women and vice versa.

Our investigations enable us to uncover all the relatively innocent tricksters as well as the more serious imposters, all of whom are masquerading in some way, shape or form under what they believe is the anonymous security of the internet.

We take our job very seriously and our in-depth research methods enable us to truly examine just who is sitting behind the keyboard, whether this involves confirming or denying identities or giving someone peace of mind that the person they have been dating online is truly who they say they are. Unfortunately, our job also includes delivering upsetting news to clients.

With the use of high-tech psychological profiling, background investigations and undercover presence on the ground of the specific country, we are able, in most cases, to identify the fraudsters, as well as confirm genuine individuals. For instance, in recent months, we have dealt with, and solved, online dating fraud enquiries from countries such as Senegal, Nigeria, Ukraine, Russia and the Philippines to Turkey, Iceland, Ireland, America, and Canada.

We are extremely flexible, efficient and speedy in this line of work and, as such, truly believe we are the leading agency in the UK for this line of enquiry.
