Penny Background Checks - Consumer Beware

It is becoming more and more common for the general public to "buy" into the idea that you can, "Be Your Own Online Investigator" and guess what, the public is "buying in" in large quantities. These companies offer "instant comprehensive background checks" for pennies (ok maybe a $ dollar or two). Many of these companies (that I won't name here) have capitalized on selling you old, inaccurate information online and marketed "background checks" and claim to have information on a particular phone number or email address when they really do not have valid current owner information.

It has been researched and documented by my colleagues and peers that many of these companies are foreign based and have a P.O. box listed for an address with contact numbers so old that you can not reach a live person. Sometime this old contact number that is as inaccurate as the outdated information you just purchased. As a licensed private investigator I am always trying to keep up on who has the most up to date and accurate or reliable information. I can tell you without reservation I do not use any of these irreputable companies.

The next time you are in need of reliable information on an individual or company and "before" you type in your credit card numbers and press enter feel free to send me a message either via email through Right Path Investigations at  If you are in serious need of Investigative Services you can always send a request for a " No Obligation Confidential Client Interview" by visiting us here:  I had to post this info: Just know I am trying to save you some future heart ache &($$$) .

In summary, you  probably have heard your mother or father at one point in your life say, "You get what you pay for." This rings true not only here but in many situations in life and it is good advice to heed. Call me or message me and I will be happy to tell you which of these companies to steer clear from over our confidential client interview. My best advice going forward is to for you to use Google for your internet research. If you still can't find the information you are looking for  and still need to know, ask yourself this...
