Just when you thought the bar couldn’t get lower: Con artists have been using social media platforms to extort relatives of missing persons.
I wanted to focus on two testimonials that we recently received from people that called us to assist in helping them finding their birth father.
These are some uncharted and anxiety-driven times, to say the least.
Over the past 10 days, there’s been a spike in the number of people calling our office, asking us to locate their relatives. The level of interest is similar to that of the Christmas season. People seem concerned and worried about relatives that they haven’t seen for some time – be it for a few months or many decades.
Thomas G. Martin appeared on the Reconnection Club’s Podcast to discuss how to find an adult child that you’ve lost touch with. The interview was released on March 9, 2020.
About two weeks ago, we got a call from Sarah, who wanted us to locate her paternal grandfather.
Sarah was kind and thoughtful to write a review of our efforts, and include a photograph of her and her grandfather.
From November through Christmas, we get about 40-50 calls per week – inquiring about locating all sorts of individuals. They range from disconnected family members, high school sweethearts, military friends, college buddies, former co-workers and neighbors.
We find about 98.4% of the people we look for.
Before you spend your hard-earned money on hiring a private investigator to find someone, you may want to visit the following two sites, both of which are free.
Is there someone in your life that you miss dearly or you have just become disconnected from?
Would you be willing to spend $69 for our staff to access one of the world’s largest databases of information to help locate that person?
$69 is the same price from the television ads that we ran in 1997. Today, the regular price of this service is $495.
Through December 31, 2018, we will honor the $69 price when you contact us via the martinpi.com website and mention this offer.
Do you ever wonder what happened to that guy you dated back in high school and college that you just knew was “the one” before your careers took you in different directions? Do you have a lost love that you think about every day, just wondering what ever happened to them, what they are doing…
During the 2015 holidays, I was asked to locate a young man named Michael and try to get him help for his addiction problems. I initially turned down the case, but the boy’s grandfather persuaded me otherwise. His plea was enhanced by showing me a photo of the 16-year old in a football uniform. The football uniform was from the same high school my son graduated. It seemed like it was meant to be.
In September 2016, I received a call from Michael on my cell phone. He was doing well and had been sober for nine months. He wanted to go to lunch when he returned from another state where he was in rehab. I reminded him it was his turn to buy since I had treated him at McDonald’s the day he was found. He laughed but politely agreed.
