03/26/2006: "Private Investigator Blog - March 26th Update"
This week I've been working on a new website dedicated to martial arts, hopefully I'll have it up and running by the end of the month and I'll post a link to it on this blog.
ONLINE SCAM WEBSITE WARNINGS
I've had a few emails this week about several USA / UK websites offering customers the ability to "be their own private eye" and search all these secret databases for a one time only payment of $40.
These websites, as my clients soon found out, just offer links to very basic public records websites that you have to pay to access. One guy emailed me saying he'd spent $80 (£40) trying to use these sites to "Do It Himself" but found that they were impossible to use.
As with most of these online websites, if you come directly to me first you're going to save money. I have quicker, cheaper access to all these databases, know how to efficiently use them, have access to specialised databases not available to the public and I will make 3-10 searches of each database to investigate. These scam companies will charge you £30 just for one search! And that database is probobly not that useful to your search!!!!
Well, you've been warned.
ON A LIGHTER NOTE
I saw this joke, I think it sounds like some of the people who email me
A kid was lost, so he found a police officer and told him, "I've lost my dad!"
The police officer asked, "What's he like?"
The kid replied, "Beer and women!"
