Today, everybody has access to people and information like we’ve never seen. Don’t be a victim: let My Texas PI help you stay safe.
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan not only scored a big hit in 1998 with their email romance in the movie “You’ve Got Mail,” but they ushered in the phenomenon beginning in the early 2000s of online dating.
Online dating has soared in popularity, with statistics showing that one out of four straight couples and two out of three gay couples now meet on the Internet. Although a majority of Americans now believe that online dating is a good way to meet people, it carries risks inherent to communicating with strangers.
Before you let a stranger into your domestic life, doesn’t it make sense to check that person’s background? Most people build themselves up on a dating profile and are probably harmless. You’ll find out soon enough if they’ve lied about their age or appearance. But other things, such as financial status and criminal history, are harder to discover and, in most cases, are not going to be disclosed. It’s dangerous and it can be disastrous.
At My Texas PI, we can help you make sure you are not putting yourself and your family at risk by bringing an undesirable person into your midst. Once they are in, they can be hard – and expensive – to get rid of.
Some of our services in this area include checking records, such as criminal background, financial, sex offender registry and more. We offer peace of mind before you open yourself up.
Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal identifying information without your permission. This information may include your name, address, date of birth, Social Security number, driver license number, mother's maiden name or financial information such as your bank account, credit card, or PIN number.
According to the Texas Attorney General’s website, identity theft is one of the nation's fastest-growing, most expensive criminal enterprises. Every year more than 25,000 Texans report being victims of identity theft with thousands more unaware that their information and bank accounts have been targeted. Identity thieves use stolen information to obtain new credit cards; open checking accounts; make long distance or collect calls; or make purchases on a stolen credit card. Think it can't happen to you? Think again.
Identity theft is an expensive and time-consuming ordeal. My Texas PI can help you find ways to avoid being a victim of identity theft, as well as what to do if it happens to you.
