Angelina works in a busy office all day and spends much of her time chained to her PC so when she found herself single again she turned to the Internet to fill the hole that she now felt in her life. It didn’t take long for her to find a new boyfriend but she wishes now that she had checked to see if he had arrest warrants before they got serious together.
It can be safe to find dates on the Internet but you must be careful
Do you have the time to go clubbing, hang around in bars and join loads of activities just in case you’ll find Mr Right? No not many people do today. Life is such a busy place and you have to find faster ways of doing things. The Internet provides quick and efficient ways of doing so many things and dating is one of them. Everyone is doing it and even I managed to find a soulmate this way.
So after a few short evenings of searching online Angelina met George. They got on really well and after they had spent a few weeks chatting to each other in email and messenger they decided to meet in real life. Angelina had purposely searched for someone local to make this stage easier. It’s no good finding a soulmate if they are too far away to visit now is it?
Their first date
Angelina and George followed all the rules of safe dating for the first few times that they met. They met in a public place in broad daylight and always made sure that someone knew where they were going. Angelina is very sensible and knows the importance of staying safe.
George swept Angelina off her feet every time they met and she fell madly in love with him. She was so happy a few months later when he asked her to marry her so they set an early date for the wedding.
A simple background check could avoid embarrassment at the wedding
A few short months later Angelina looked stunning in her wedding dress. She glowed with excitement and thought that this was going to be the happiest day of her life.
Angelina had never been more wrong about anything. You see George never turned up at the wedding and all the excitement and happiness that Angelina had felt turned to hate and bitterness, not to mention the embarrassment of being stood up at your wedding with a hundred or more guests. Oh yes and the huge expense of the wedding itself.
George had active arrest warrants and had been apprehended by the police
George had climbed into the wedding car that day but he never got to the wedding because the cops had stopped and arrested him. Angelina had no idea that he had several arrest warrants out on him, one was for skipping bail on a sex offender charge!
How could Angelina have found out if he had arrest warrants
Angelina could have avoided this embarrassing conclusion to the relationship if only she had done a simple online background check on George when they first met. It’s so easy to do and it could have turned up all the arrest warrants, criminal records and marriage records on George. Yes he might have been married, you never know do you?
This is a story that I made up to illustrate a very real problem that affects thousands of people every day. How do you know that new friends and other people that you come in contact with are actually who they say they are and that they aren’t hiding something from you.
Find out if he has arrest warrants now before you get serious
Angelena had a narrow escape. Have fun when you date but don’t you get caught out like she did.
