We live at an exceptionally fast pace in the 21st century, one that’s dominated by the growth of technology and social media platforms, and, in this age, this technology can easily be used to fool others, which is why it’s become more important today to do in-depth background checks on people, whether you are comfortable with it or not.
None of us really wants to have to dig up any details about a new love interest, however, the risks are just too great to take a chance on your innocent ‘gut’ feeling that says everything’s okay.
Anyone contemplating a new romantic relationship is vulnerable, susceptible to the dictates of the heart, which is why we should be more careful, so that we know what we’re getting into before any hearts are broken.
The seemingly perfect love interest could quite possibly turn out to be someone with a history of abusive behaviour, an alcoholic or drug addict. There are other issues that could cause untold pain by the time you’re in too deep!
This is when you may want to face reality and talk to a registered, professional and trusted private investigator in South Africa.
The team of private investigators at King Investigators have seen it all, and as a result, are really sensitive to the difficulties of investigating someone new in your life.
On the business front, wouldn’t you want to be absolutely certain that you have all the right information on hand before you consider taking on a new business partner? Having this solid, in-depth background information up-front could save you from being hit hard, either in terms of financial fraud or the selling of company trade secrets?
If you’re planning to merge with another company, or, if you’re starting a new business with a few different investors, it’ll be just as important have as much real information as possible about all the players, before you sign on the dotted line.
Owner of King Investigators, Jacques Botha, points out that ‘If someone you’re taking on as a new business partner is already hiding assets and wealth from you before the ink is dry on paper, how much will you be able to trust them in your own venture?’
You might end up kissing your money and/or reputation goodbye, and, in the current downgraded economic climate, no one can afford mistakes like this.
On a more personal level, some divorce proceedings become a battleground, with parties hiding wealth and other assets they have no desire to part with in the divorce!
In all these cases, only a registered private investigator can gather the in-depth facts about these issues. They do so using tools and techniques that are not available to the general public, or to anyone who is not a licensed investigator.
In-depth employee background checks and comprehensive employment reports have also become a necessity in this day and age of technologically enhanced fraud. What it says on the CV isn’t necessarily the truth unfortunately.
Not every company dismisses an employee gives the reason for the dismissal or bothers to press charges in serious offences. This means you could end up with an employee who looks good at face value, but dig a little deeper, and you may be in for more than your fair share of trouble!
In the final analysis, along with considering that there are many other situations that require a deep background investigation, investing in a background check, whether for personal or business reasons, will be a priceless asset if it means that you’re protected on all fronts.
Contact Jacques Botha and his team of private investigators at King Investigators in Gauteng to set your mind at ease with professional, in-depth background checks that’ll save money and time for your business, and avoid a lot of heartache on a personal level.
