Sometime in the mid-eighties while working for an investigative agency, I discovered I had a unique ability to pretext and social engineer; which is lying to extract private information. Eventually, I left my job and opened a skip tracing (finding people) service in some anonymous office in mid-town Manhattan. I spent my days pulling phone records, bank records, travel records, and any other document or file a client needed. My philosophy was, if you can afford it, I can obtain it.
The tools of social engineering made me a deadly skip tracer (finds people). Investigators, lawyers, insurance companies, tabloids, and others hired me to locate people worldwide. Again my philosophy was if you can afford it, I can find them.
Somewhere in early 2000, I wrote an article, How to Disappear for an offshore website and it blew up. The next thing you know, I am the Dear Abby of disappearing. People from all parts of the world began contacting me about their privacy issues and need to vanish. I then authored a book, How to Disappear; which was published and became a New York Times Bestseller.
Somewhere along my road, I found myself in the romance scam and blackmail business. The romance scam involves identifying if a person is dating an online fraud or helping to recover stolen funds. The blackmail work is about getting the victim out of their precarious situation and creating disinformation to combat photo or video exposure.
Oddly, these professions all involve the use of deception. One could say is I use the negative, to battle the negative to obtain a positive outcome. If I can be of help, do not hesitate to ask.
