The Protective Group reflects on an article published on ARLnow, which discusses the use of a private investigator to perform online dating background checks before people meet in real life.

On August 3, leading security company, The Protective Group, remarks on an article published by ARLnow on July 26 titled “Private Detectives Offer Online Dating Background Checks” regarding the use of a private investigator to perform a background check on people you meet online before seeing them in real life.

According to an article published on ARLnow, a growing trend is among us in the private security business. More and more people are beginning to hire a private investigator to perform a background check on someone they met online to help inform their decision to meet them in person.

The problem with online dating is that, behind the computer, you can be anyone. The article chronicles one person’s mishap with her online dating experience. The unnamed online dater had met a man online and planned on meeting him in real life. Upon arriving at the man’s house she was greeted by a middle-aged woman to learn that the “man” she had met online turned out to be a 13-year-old boy.

John Monderine, CEO of The Protective Group says, “In online dating, you can never be 100 percent sure who you are talking to until you meet them in person. I think that by hiring a private investigator, a person can put all of their suspicions to rest after meeting a person online.”

In the article, private investigator Brian O’Shea reveals that many people call him to investigate someone they’ve met online. He says that he’s received all sorts of calls “from people having just met to people doing one last double-check before getting married to someone they met online.”

Monderine says that hiring a private investigator may someday become the norm for online daters. “With the growing popularity of these background checks, I think its only a matter of time before people everywhere are given opportunities to check out a person before they meet them in person.”
