I was wondering if any of you had requested the information necessary to conduct a background check early in the relationship. I was advised to be very cautious and to do that with anyone I met over the internet. I contacted a professional firm to do the investigation and they had good articles on their website about pre-relationship background checks. One of their articles said seniors are particularily vulnerable. The person I was talking too was offended that I did not just automatically trust him, but I believe a relationship is too important to leave details like that to chance.
I have added in my profile that any serious relationship seekers will be asked for information for a background check. I am also offering to supply the information someone else would need to do a background check on me.
I would be interested in your comments.
