Catfish Investigator

It's not just infidelity investigations we can carry out. We can also investigate online dates and ensure it is not a scammer or fraud.

A private investigator is someone who has your best interests at heart. Unfortunately, there will be people out there who use online dating websites and various social media platforms to perform online dating scams and trick people by online fraud. 

The danger with online dating lies in the fact that you are not only risking getting heartbroken, but you may also be risking losing plenty of money in the bargain with the person online.

It is not always so easy to spot a suspected catfish on the surface or on social media.

The term 'catfish' has been spawned by a popular documentary and TV series which focuses on investigating people who scam others through deceptive behavior and fake profiles used to gather personal information or form a false relationship. 

Inspired by the catfishing phenomenon, we have been undertaking private dating investigations for private clients for several years now.

If your potential date seems to be withholding information, or if they are constantly changing dates to meet up with you, you may be dealing with a scammer. 

If this is the case, you are going to need the confidence to take further action and gather more information across sites, via investigation. 

Whether this means cutting off all contact or even getting the police involved, you are going to need solid evidence to back you up.  Let us be your closest allies in the fight against catfishing and all other forms of online victim fraud.

Dating Site Fraud

Our nearby dating fraud team will be able to help you run background checks on the people you believe you are in contact with.

Catfishing is a phenomenon that happens hundreds of times a day globally, a quick Google search shows how popular the term 'catfish' really is. 


While people may seem genuine at first and may even be willing to meet with you, if you feel someone may not be genuine, it is time to listen to your gut.

What's more, it is always a good idea to approach a private investigator if you feel issues are lurking in that person's history. 

We don't necessarily mean criminal or financial checks; however, they can become part of a wider investigation.

Suspected fake accounts have penetrated the dating scene online, using deceptive behaviour to form fake relationships, sometimes even going as far as identity theft.

Private investigation can help you check the individual you are dealing with is a real person and not too good to be true.

It's important to protect yourself, your friend or a family member from a person that may be using online gaming chat rooms or other social media accounts for nefarious purposes.

Dating Site Scams

Dating scams and romance scams are all too common.

Many local people throughout our surrounding areas find themselves tricked and scammed into dates and relationships with people who genuinely don’t exist, or who aren’t who they say they are. 

Common tricks may be easier to spot thanks to the popular MTV show; however, you may still need an experienced investigator by your side if you want to get to the bottom of who a person really is. 

You can hide behind an online profile, however, eventually, things have to come to a head. 

If you are worried about being catfished, always look for the following behaviour:

  • Very few photos or pictures online and refuses to send pictures
  • The person claims they don't have a webcam so cannot show their face
  • Very little social media presence
  • Phone number changes across sites
  • Conversations are focused on money or wealth
  • Dates may not be willing to meet up or keep cancelling at the last minute
  • Profile information and photos are limited or appear to have been lifted from elsewhere.
