People searches do not only have to be about trying to find someone who is missing or thought to have come to harm’s way. People searches can be exciting and romantic affairs, as they can be cause for happy family reunions.
Whether you want to find a lost person or to find a person that you have lost contact with, going through a professional people search agency is a viable choice. If you Google “people searches” on the Internet, you’ll find many a site, telling you how you can trace a person from a phone number or from an email address, or how to glean information on a person without having to go the professional search route. I’d say, great go for it, because in terms of cost, you definitely will be saving, but I’m actually not convinced. I adhere to perhaps a more traditional school of thought, where you get what you pay for.
When I buy something, I actually prefer to foot a pricey bill if need be, and the logic is simply that I don’t want to be paying for the product or service again two months down the road. And when I hire someone to do a professional service for me, I want to trust that they will not take shortcuts simply because they know they are dealing with someone who does not know their area of expertise like they do.
I could search for a long-lost love myself, using a medley of suggestions from a variety of online sources, but then in all likelihood, I’d spend hours and hours researching online, and, in all likelihood, I might not end up much further ahead. The trick is to ask the professional service provider to estimate the total cost and success rates, and to explain what % of the search options out there, and available to me, that I would be using. Then at least, I know what I’m paying for.
