Should You Hire a Private Investigator to Confirm Boyfriend’s Identity

Confirm Boyfriend's Identity

Finding the right person to share your attention, heart, and goals with can be an exciting adventure. But relationships at any age can also be scary. A relationship’s foundation is built on trust, but far too often that trust is broken or destroyed before it can even solidify. A professional private investigator can help confirm your potential or existing boyfriend’s identity. But why should you consider going to such extreme measures?

Confirm Relationship Status

While there are many types of relationship goals, most new romantic relationships are built on the ideal and expectation (at least on one side) that both participants are single. But chaos and potential problems can arise when that plan is later shattered. The sooner you discover the truth, the better. But some people will go completely out of their way to lead you on and keep you from knowing anything other than what they claim.

It’s often easier to discover the betrayal quickly when the relationship is built locally. But those hidden secrets can be far more difficult to uncover when the relationship begins online. According to Statista, there are currently over 50 million Americans who are dating or attempting to make romantic connections online. And based on previous research, approximately 30% of Tinder users alone are actually married. If that’s okay with you, so be it. But if not, it might be time to confirm your boyfriend’s identity.

Verify Criminal Records

Everyone makes mistakes, and one or even a few big ones that resulted in legal correction or accountability can be understood and even forgiven (if forgiveness is required or appropriate). Most of the time, those are usually disclosed naturally as a relationship progresses. In fact, if the relationship is exclusive or potentially serious, the big concerns are often disclosed relatively quickly to avoid discomfort and heartache later. At least that’s what’s done in mature relationships. Asking tough questions doesn’t always get the truth. If you’ve been a victim of abuse in the past or have kids, you may want to verify those concerns yourself. A professional private investigator can easily verify your boyfriend’s criminal history so you can breathe easier.

Protect Yourself and Your Assets

Most people are somewhat concerned or at least aware of identity theft issues. But only approximately 10% of Americans have actually experienced true ID theft. That still leads to a lot of stolen funds and assets, and romance scams can hit you where it hurts even worse. According to the FTC, romance scams have risen almost 80% from 2020 to 2021, resulting in financial losses totaling a record high of almost $550 million. Confirming your boyfriend’s identity early on might not keep him from stealing from you. But that knowledge could definitely expedite reversing any potential damage.

Avoid Being Catfished

Catfishing is the act of creating and using fake online profiles to lure prospective romantic partners into relationships. With over 80% of Americans now being active social media users, catfishing is everywhere. Sometimes catfishing is done for nefarious reasons such as to gain financial or other personal information. But other times, the pretender is lonely, bored, insecure, or just trying to stir up some trouble. Fortunately, there are effective ways to catch a catfish, and a professional private investigator can help. Give us a call when you’re ready to confirm your boyfriend’s identity.
