Will someone know that I am performing an online investigation about him?

No. The online investigations are completely confidential. The only way someone might suspect that you are performing an investigation is if she or he went into your Web browser and checked to see which Web sites you have visited. For this reason, we always recommend cleaning your browser history after each investigation.

On the contrary, if you were to perform an old-fashion investigation with a private investigator, you would run the risk of being caught if the investigator provided you with evidence that you then would have to hide, or if the investigator let his face be seen by the person that you are investigation, leading to suspicion.

How do I know what kind of information I can expect to get?

The information that will be uncovered varies by site. Some sites offer more categories than others. That’s why we always recommend reading through our site reviews so that you can choose the site that provides the kind of results that you’re looking for.
In terms of the information that is returned, you will only get information based on the background of the person that you are investigating. For example, if your mark has a criminal history, then you will get information about that criminal history. However, if there is no criminal history, then your results will, of course, be free of that criminal history.

How quickly can I get these results?

The speed of return depends on the site that you choose. Most sites have an option to deliver the results to your email within 24 hours after the search is performed. Other sites will deliver results almost immediately on your screen. Some sites also offer a rush-fee for a faster return. If speed is an issue for you, then you will want to make sure that you select a service that provides fast returns after a search.
