Can you find a forum that entertains foolishness, rejoices in blackmail, has the funds to litigate against Google and finds extortion to be an admirable quality? If you do, please join and do BHW a favor....disassociate yourself.
lmao he is funny..

anyway do you do sorts of deductions like investigator or detective? (no offense)
also, i think that you dont always find the answers to the question?

This is like in the movies when the guy gets into different CIA/ FBI databases to find out information. Definitely a unique choice of career.

Do you have any access to law enforcement agencies databases?

Several that I use/have used are open to and used by law enforcement, but I don't know how their info may differ.

You said you got into this career by accident. Did you know these skills before you got into it? Where did you learn them?

I was hired by an old friend (I worked with in previous years) to repair some PC/networking issues he was having at his office. I wasn't sure what they did exactly, but in my time there, I overheard enough to make me curious. It took me several months to get much out of him, but eventually I paid him a fee ($45,000) to work with him and learn the core services, methods and business model. Additionally, I worked cases for him at 50% of what he charged, so he made an addiitional $20,000 off of my work, but it was a good way to learn. I also believe my core abilities and skillset make me effective and a good match for the work.

I used to this at my old job using Accurint. I was pretty good at it too. Connecting the dots and what not.

Never knew there was a consulting aspect to this field

I have been a member here for a few years now, and I originally joined BHW to network myself among some talented people in hopes of finding some methods to assist me service the various needs my clients have from time to time. I'm sharing this because I have developed my career along the way, and at some point soon I would like to explore some avenues that I know could be successful, but I will need to find the right people to work with to make that happen. What I do is rather different than the average member of a Blackhat marketing site, but I have made some good friends & great revenue thanks to the relationships I have made here, and for that I am very grateful. I began this career almost 6 years ago almost by accident, and over time I have developed an impressive set of skills in marketing & providing something that really has little to no real value because it's a commodity, yet that commodity is priceless when it's of extreme importance to the end client that needs it when the time is right. That commodity is personal information, and it's something that will always be in demand.

Whether it's a private matter, business situation, or anywhere in between, there is an infinite demand in the professional/legal world for quality information when an end client has a need. I now service both corporate & private clients with that information in order for them to solve problems and find answers. Although I am vague on the specifics, this work all centers around various forms of investigation. I am NOT in law enforcement, nor a lawyer, nor anything professionally licensed to perform a specific service....I AM however a source that professionals use when they need answers. In generic terms, I am an information broker.

I have worked cases involving missing people, white collar crime, financial wrong doing, litigation cases, airline disasters, ponzi schemes, abused children, celebrity mishaps and the list goes on. I have had times I spent countless hours banging my head against the wall trying to find what was needed...to times that I earned more money in an hour than some people make in a week. It's not always been pretty, but the best part of all of it is the difference i have made in lives of people that I never even met, but what I did made all the difference to them and their family. That is whatI am most proud of by far.

My work environment is rather casual, I usually work from home on a PC, often in shorts and a T shirt, sometimes even with a beer in hand, but I perform and I deliver so who is to say it doesn't work. I have access to proprietary information that i use to begin each order, and from there it depends on the situation and what is needed to get the job done. I have to consistently think outside the box in order to be successful, but nothing comes easy and I enjoy it, so it's worth it in the end.

I can cold call & develop new clients over the phone into strong & lasting relationships without ever meeting them face to face, which is both good & bad because the biggest problem I have faced over time is being able to service all the work I have coming in. It has pushed me into temporary burnout a few times since i started, but the thought of ever getting a "regular job" and paid by the hour quickly sobers my thoughts and sets me back on course. I have considered from time to time "selling my brain' to the right person who has the skills and desire to pursue this, but I haven't managed to take that step as of yet. Lately I even considered making a UDEMY course on various parts of what i do and how to pursue this work, but I feel I will need to find someone to partner with to make it happen. Perhaps this is partially why i am sharing this now. This career is definitely not for everyone, but it's not rocket science either.

Motivation and initiative open doors of opportunity. I hope this post reads better than it appears at this point, I have no interest in editing or revising it, but i will leave you all with this thought....No matter what your personal situation or circumstance, if you will take the time and invest the effort into something you both enjoy and you believe in, you WILL be successful in whatever you aim to do.

Pick up the phone, ask the question, or do whatever it is necessary to accomplish what you set out to do. Take action on your dreams if you want to see them come true. Cheers

Accurint is a quality database.
The consultation aspect comes with developing clients into relationships.
They trust my judgment and I watch their backs. Mutually beneficial.

I strictly work private and commercial clients, although many cases are involved the legal system.
If you want to explore the field, you should start following some "private investigation" sites.
