Make sure you know that the person you are dealing with is truly who they say they are.
Are you in a romantic relationship that is starting to get serious? Are you contemplating marriage, selling your home and moving in with someone, traveling to meet a person you met online? Has your son, daughter, mother, or father become involved in a suspect relationship?
When you are involved in online dating, you take a risk that the people you are talking to are being at least as honest as you are. You do not have the benefit of getting to know someone slowly through normal day to day interactions. At a minimum, you should confirm who they are and where they live.
Heartache, emotional distress, and financial devastation may be prevented by being proactive. A background check can answer many of the who, what, when and where questions, thereby confirming your trust and helping you gain peace of mind.
