Scamming is a huge business. In 2019, reported scams cost Australians over a massive $630 million. Online scammers, sometimes referred to as a catfish, are people pretending to be someone they are not using a fake identity or profile. Internet fraud and cat-fishing is perpetrated by heartless people without a conscience, which can have devastating real life effects.
If you suspect a scammer has you in their sights, or if you’ve even handed money to someone and you’re not sure if they’re legitimate, contact us or the Police as soon as possible.
Our online investigation can uncover the details of online profiles, e-mail addresses and phone numbers to determine if someone is a scammer or attempting online fraud. This process allows us to verify the true identity of someone on a dating site or social media to discover if they’re being upfront, so you don’t fall in love with a fake identity and run the risk of being relieved of your life savings, along with a broken heart.
Using our expertise in cyber investigations, we can cross check any person’s online identity with real life information to establish if they are who they claim to be, despite how convincing they are. We can also help to track down the location of scammers, con-men, or anyone who has or is attempting to defraud or deceive someone online.
I think someone is trying to scam me. I need help.
