- Check photos-

Scammers use photos that do not belong to them. 2 possibilities:

i)  to pretend to be an existing person. But the person talking to you is not the person in the photo. OR

ii) to create a non-existing person. Occupation and country of residence he/she claimed often do not match the actual person in photos.  

AUD 60 for every 12 photos & General analysis and advice - Non-refundable

OR AUD 100 for every 20 photos & General analysis and advice - Non-refundable


- Country / IP address capture (Accurate) -

We will create a blog for you and your online lover.  Once he/she clicks the URL, his/her actual physical location (country/area) and IP address will be revealed.  In infrequent cases, they can have routed their IP address, but it is still the source on through where / whom they are routed. 

If your online lover is just a scammer, he/she would actually be in Africa or Malaysia etc. while he/she claims to be in Australia, the US or somewhere else (most cases).  If the IP is indeed from the country he/she claims to be, you still should not be fully certain he/she is real or fake but the IP remains an important source if you want to trace him/her. 

IP address + date (+time):  is usually useful if you report your case to police or cybercrime squad of your country.

AUD 180  -- if he/she is unwilling to click the URL (then it is quite certain he/she is a scammer), but IP address / real geolocation cannot be captured.   We will still give you a partial refund of AUD 40.   

< Option: If you have built your own website and prefer to use it to capture your online lover's geolocation/IP address, we can also do it for you BEFORE your online lover clicks it.  You must specify when you submit your request to us. >

- Verification of supporting websites, profiles, etc -

Your online lover can have sent you his/her company websites, Linkedin profiles, passport copy, etc for himself or his/her 3rd party support.

Technically, it is very easy to create a beautiful professional looking illegitimate website.  Non-technical people cannot distinguish easily.

We will verify how certain/likely they are real/fake.  We specialize in identifying fake websites, Linkedin profiles etc; 

For other documents such as Passport, banking document, contracts, best is for you to check with authorities;  but you may also send us and we will check if there is anything unusual or find external sources to check them for you.

AUD 48 - for 1 websites / profile / documents;

AUD 86 - for 2 websites / profile / documents  (+ AUD 38 for every 1 additional item)

(Partial refund of 30%available if there is insufficient information to comment on All pieces of websites / profiles / documents after our research.)


- Email's Country Source (IP Address) -

This method has an advantage that no interaction from an online lover is required, as long as he/she had ever sent you an email, even if the email was sent a while ago.

The disadvantage is that some email service provider has hidden this information, and even if not, it is possible to forge. <Criminals do not usually bother to fake it, and not all criminals have such skills.> 

In other words, if email's IP address reveals that he/she was in Africa, Malaysia when he/she claims to be in the US, Canada etc, then you know he/she is surely a scammer; but if email reveals that he/she was in the country he/she claims to be, then you are still not fully certain.

AUD 50 - if his/her IP address is hidden and we cannot find any information at all, we will partial refund you AUD 20.   

- (Advanced) photo examination - 

Different from classical photo identity check, this advanced photo examination is to examine data behind the photos. Contact us and we will explain how it works.  

AUD 30 for 3 photos OR AUD 50 for 5 photos (non-refundable)

Complimentary to check 3 photos for customers requesting "Check photos"
