~ online merchants lure private investigators ~

There are services on the Internet that target private investigators but may reinforce negative impressions of the nature of the work we perform, thereby compromising our legitimate access to personal information. One site, Freelance Security, encourages investigators to grovel by bidding on requests from the public for jobs from the standard domestic surveillances to the more suspect like, “identify the holder of a telephone number not listed in public phone book.” Then the private investigator quotes a fee for providing the service, which is published in an open forum. How denigrating is this?

The company taking fees from investigators for the “opportunity” is somewhere in cyberspace, barely identifiable. Here’s their domain listing:
