Beware of Imposters, Fakes and Frauds

Here’s an important question most people in the market for a new mate might want to ask themselves. Is this person really who they say they are? Too often today the answer to that question is either “no”. That often charming person who is lavishing you with gifts or who reportedly has his wealth momentarily tied up can be an imposter bent on fleecing you. The problem is that if they are not, it could be a very expensive lesson trying to extricate you from that person’s life. History is filled with great imposters, almost all of them surrounding money and finances. Bernie Madoff, Frank Abagnale, David Hampton and Christian Gerhartsreiter (Clark Rockefeller) are just to name a few. Prudence tells us that it is better to spend a little extra time and resources up front and get to know the person you are dealing with. Low cost background checks can yield information that can alert you to problem areas. Have they lived where they said, do they have multiple dates of births or have they been married previously? It’s best to know up front. Don’t be fooled, check them out now. In the end it will be worth it.
