Peter Torley, owner and lead detective at PDL said, Unfortunately, scams and scammers continue to thrive worldwide, as they adapt to use modern technologies, and a post-pandemic world to their ill-intentioned advantage. Thus we must adapt to combat their methods to protect our finances, businesses, and livelihoods”

He continued, We advise everyone to conduct due diligence into any personal or business arrangement an artful scammer might attempt to exploit. Furthermore, we offer a background checking service that aims to equip our valued clients with peace of mind, and the intelligence needed to make key decisions.”

He added, We have repeatedly been approached by clients who have lost hundreds of thousands to millions of pounds on deals and supposed opportunities that an initial background check would have advised against. As such we have experienced first hand that the importance of background checks must not be understated.”
