Opperman Investigations adds asset searches to their large and established line of online investigation services.
Denver, Colorado - December 21, 2009 – Opperman Investigations, an online investigation company specializing in identifying extramarital activity on the internet, has added asset searches to their investigative tool chest. Opperman’s asset investigations, available through their website at www.emailrevealer.com, provide creditors and individuals going through a divorce an effective legal channel to locate unclaimed or hidden assets to satisfy back debts, to aid with divorce litigation, and to help with collection on child support payments.
Prior to 1999, asset searches were significantly easier than they are today. While legislation passed that year was hailed as a step in the right direction for consumer protection, Ed Opperman, the owner of EmailRevealer.com, shares how these changes affected the private investigation field - “Consumer complaints about privacy triggered lawmakers to enact new legislation. After these changes to privacy laws, many investigators were no longer able to conduct asset searches in strict compliance with the Drivers Protection Privacy Act (DPPA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). This is mainly due to a reliance on pretexting to obtain financial information. They [investigators] would call the financial institutions and impersonate the actual account holder to obtain the financial information.”
Pretexting, which was a popular tool for investigators trying to locate account types, account numbers, and balances on behalf of their clients, was suddenly off the table. While this did curb the effectiveness of asset searches, specifically those relating to financial accounts held by the individual being investigated, Mr. Opperman’s investigative services have apparently discovered a way to locate financial information about account holders using GLBA-compliant methods. Opperman continues, “[we have] developed legal methods to obtain banking information including the banks where accounts are held. This information in conjunction with subpoena power can locate exact account numbers and balances.”
Opperman’s asset investigation services purportedly can find assets including vehicles, real estate, property, bank accounts, and investment accounts.
