The article in BBC News published on 24th February 2015: (, thoroughly describes a murder case that began over an online dating website. Darren Jeffrey, 47, began dating a 45 year old mother of two after meeting over an online dating website. After a few months of cyber chat, the two began dating and often met in cafés. Despite a strong connection, Darren was declared as an oddly possessive and jealous individual by all of Karen's family and friends. As a result of some unknown jealous trigger, Darren battered the victim Karen to death one night. After struggling to somehow cover the crime that had been committed, the criminal called the police. It was a year later that Darren confessed to the murder. Darren has now been sentenced to a minimum of seventeen and a half years of jail.

In response to the article published in BBC News, detectives at Private Detectives Stoke ( share the precautionary tips that can minimize chances of identity fraud. Online dating websites can easily provide individuals with a platform on which changing one's identity is not a hard task. When coming into contact with any individual that appears to look suspicious or mistrustful, the detectives run a thorough background check. This is not solely based on criminal and documented records the agency keeps. It is a detailed report of the individuals. Through the research that is done, the investigators can comprehend the nature of the person. Private detectives at Stoke repeatedly stress on the precaution that should be taken when letting individuals one has known only over a period of a few weeks or months, into one's house. Before any private information is shared amongst individuals, it is important to know certain details. These details only offer protection that Karen Catherall did not have. In times of careless and impulsive behavior, the circumstances can be lethal. Private detectives at Stoke help in preventing such circumstances.

The Chief Investigator at Private Detectives Stoke, Tommy Irwin, speaks up about the caution that is absolutely imperative when meeting random strangers over superficial websites. Investigator Irwin says "It is possible for any individual to fake a name and personality through an online forum of communication. This is where several things go haywire. You cannot decipher what the individual on the other end is like until you meet them. Before you take the risk of letting the other person into your life it is better to take precautionary steps. Otherwise a simple case of infatuation can turn into a deathly relationship."
