Use a professional Background Check to Find Out if They're Cheating...

The online dating world has made it possible for adults to lead double (or triple, or quadruple...) lives. While unhappy on the home front, they go online to seek fantasy relationships and liaisons without ever telling their internet partner(s) the truth - "I'm Married!" Or, as in a recent case, they search out old flames to rekindle relationships without copping to the fact that they're married.

A complete background check is a simple way to figure out whether or not your online partner, or a rekindled romance from the past, is as available as he or she would like you to believe. It can also illuminate serious issues, such as a criminal record, that the individual might not be entirely honest about.

Got an Email From Your High School Sweetheart? Get a Background Check

Okay, so of course, there are honest people out there and we never want to use "fear factor" tactics, but we also know you can never be to careful when it comes to your personal and emotional safety. When you work as a Los Angeles Private Investigator, you learn that dishonest people are a dime a dozen. That was the case a while back when we got a call from someone who had been contacted online by an old high school sweetheart - "The one that got away", so to speak.

This client enjoyed their rekindled romance via phone and internet, and the two of them even got together for a couple of romantic weekends. The problem? He felt like something wasn't quite right, but couldn't put his finger on it. He called us after reading one of our blogs and asked what could be done. We answered, "Background Check!"

Background Checks Are One of the Best Tools in a Private Investigator's Toolbox

Sure enough. When we ran a background check on his old high school sweetheart, we saw there was a house, other records and accounts that showed both her name and her spouse's on record. This was enough to let our client know that his old flame was being unfaithful to her husband, as well as dishonest with him. It was a hard lesson to learn but he was incredibly grateful.

Paying for a professional background check saved him thousands of dollars on dating, future vacations and gifts - not to mention wasted time and heartbreak.

Use a Background Check Before Starting a Relationship

Unfortunately, the digital and cell phone era has made it easier than ever for people to be dishonest. They are able to cheat, start multiple relationships, and/or intentionally manipulate others for personal and financial gain. Before you take the next step with your online significant other, or a newly rekindled flame, do yourself a favor by doing a little research first.

Hopefully, the information you uncover will put your mind at ease. However, even the worst case scenario is still a positive outcome for you because it means you are in control of the situation and can protect both your heart and your pocketbook.

Background checks are especially important if you have children who will be in close contact with your potential new mate. As with everything in life, "Safety First!"
