The PPIAC has been made aware of a PI Scam being perpetrated by unknown individuals using a PPIAC Members identity. The scammers contact individuals who, have utilized online dating services, under pretext that they are a Private Investigator working for the PPIAC, stating they have been talking to the caller’s daughter. They then extort monies from the victim under the guise of closing the daughters cell phone account. This is NOT actually an investigator associated with PPIAC, but an imposter using the identity of a PPIAC member.
PPIAC has full confidence in the investigators in our association as each investigator is individually vetted prior to becoming a member and lives by a code of ethics, which can be found on this web site.
If you have been victimized by a similar situation, please contact President@ppiac.org with details.
