Investigators in Demand due to High Risk for Scams

St. Petersburg and Moscow private investigators have reported a sharp rise in background checks invovling pre-marital checks and dating investigations nationwide. The rise in discreet private investigations, according to one private investigator, has been led by the rise in online dating, marriage agency demand, and match-making websites. In addition, there is an increase in awareness of scams and fraud in Russia by consumers worldwide.

It is now common knowledge that marriage and dating scams in Russia is a major problem. Russia background checks are now being used as a form of insurance for those seeking to avoid fraud and scams. Professional private investigators in the Ukraine and Russia report that those contracting a respectable professional investigator are making a wise decision due to the high risk in the region. Private investigators also warn many clients seek services after the damage is done, and experts recommend getting the background check investigation early in the relationship.

Russia private investigators are now battling fraud and scams throughout the country, and fraud ranging from bridal scams to corporate fraud are at high levels. In a typical pre-marital check or background investigation, investigators can verify key factors which combined can determine if the subject is who he or she claims to be. Key points to verify include address, ID or passport, documentation, employment and education, travel or dating agencies, and other factors depending on the information avialable. Cases should be customized according to the case information available, and consumers should be very selective when choosing a Russia or Ukraine private investigator.

Even if consumers choose not to use a Russia private detective, it is important to understand and recognize the red flags. These indicators can raise the caution flag, but are not always indicative of fraud or scam. Private investigators advise consumers to be skeptical of money requests, emergencies, relationships that seem too good to be true, and subjects who fall in love overnight. Problems with immigration, passport, visas or agencies should be checked. Not having a background check can be costly.

As Russian and Ukrainian women continue to seek romantic relationships outside of Russia via the Internet and agencies, and foreign businesses look for investment opportunities in the region, private investigators will remain in demand.
