Again, my mission owning and operating Jae Investigations LLC. is to help keep people safe out there.  On line dating can be scary and intimidating.  If you read my first blog, I hope you understand my mission about keeping you safe.  As I mentioned previously, if your gut is telling you something listen, gut feelings are called intuition for a reason :-).  My gut hasn't been wrong yet.....Ok maybe my gut needs some fine tuning, but I have never been wrong regarding staying safe.  Finding "the right one" my gut stinks LOL! 

Anyway, if you gut is telling you something call me and we can figure out if there is something out there concerning.  Of course, there may be a time I can't find everything, but at least you will know you tried.  Trust me, I am pretty good at finding "dirt" out on people.  Please read the statistics below and give me a call...269-719-0233 text is OK too.  Email is OK too, jaeinvestigations@gmail.com

Introduction

Here is my story of why I have found importance in knowing who you are talking to on line.  This is also the primary reason I have chosen to focus my business on keeping women/men safe in the dating world.  Hopefully this blog will help you understand the importance of completing a background check on who you may/may not be dating. My long term boyfriend and I broke up in June 2019.  The break up was difficult and left me heartbroken, I loved my ex boyfriend beyond measure.  As a coping mechanism for the break up, I dove right into the dating world, well lets use the dating world loosely.  By dating world I mean creating profiles on internet/phone apps.  The attention from men kept my mind from pining for my ex boyfriend, my heart remained with him, but I knew the importance of moving on. I started talking with one person we shall call "Matt", not real name.  Matt was not really my type, but I didn't want to be narrow minded so I continued talking with Matt.  Inevi

Networking

By nature I am socially awkward, I would prefer to be in my house with my dog blogging (ha!).  Starting a business and living life in todays world, I have to come out of "my cave" so to speak. The other day I thought how can I get Jae Investigations name out there?  One thought I had was contacting local news stations, perhaps a station would like to develop a piece on the importance of staying safe in todays dating world.  Thankfully, Fox News 17 responded to my inquiry.  We had an interview scheduled for yesterday, however had to reschedule for 2/13.  I am thankful for this opportunity, thank you Fox17! Another piece of networking is meeting people, again socially awkward, I put my "big girl pants on" and went to an event.  At this networking event I was able to hand my card to several people, which is important to build business.  My hope is to garner some business from attending these events, if I don't gain business I can say I tried.  Jae Investiga

Avoid Scammers

Often we hear of people who talk with others on line and are scammed.  These are scary and real scenarios in the dating world.  The days of "courting" may be over *sigh*.  Here are 2 examples of questions to ask to help identify if someone you are talking with may be running a scam.  Although scams are highlighted more in the news, there are married people on these sites too.  This blog will focus on scams, the cheaters can be another day. Now, I am not saying all of these scenarios are scams, rather things to investigate. Perhaps the person you talking with is living on an oil rig in the middle of the ocean, working to get to America on a Visa or a medical professional working internationally.  This could be a reality, a lot of people do this.  Below are two examples of questions you may want to ask your potential date. What high school did you attend?  Why ask this, see below Gives you ability to find person on the internet and "humanize" them. In the
