  • The popular Internet research manual, The Cybersleuth's Guide to the Internet: Conducting Effective Investigative and Background Research on the Web has been updated to a new 14th edition. The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet features extensive reviews of the best investigative and background research resources available for free (or at low cost) on the Internet.  Unlike others...


  • After many years of hiding the search page where you could search Facebook for a user by name without being logged into an account, Facebook has finally killed the feature off. For many years, searchers could use the search form at https://www.facebook.com/srch.php to perform a name search through the Facebook user database – even if the searcher wasn’t logged into their own...


  • In an earlier post, we reported that TLOxp announced a forthcoming “Relationship Report,” which allows subscribers to simultaneously run one report comparing the assets (typically this refers only to real property and vehicles—not bank accounts or stocks) and showing other connections between two subjects. Pricing had not been announced at that time. Now that we have tried out the Relationship...


  • We recently wrote about changes to the access and pricing structure for the pay investigative research database TLOxp, in the post “TLOxp Raises Prices, Requires Site Visit for All Subscribers.” At that time we wondered if the newly required site visit that we were about to undergo would entitle us to access full Social Security Numbers and Dates of Birth. We have subsequently undergone the...


  • November 8, 2015 by Carole Levitt JD MLS & Mark Rosch     For investigative research database searching, we have been recommending TLOxp to lawyers for many years because it was inexpensive and did not require a monthly or annual subscriber fee.

  • Today, TLOxp announced a forthcoming “Relationship Report,” which will allow subscribers to run one report automatically comparing the assets (typically this refers only to real property and vehicles—not bank accounts or stocks) of two subjects, as well as showing other connections. "This additional investigative tool will save you valuable time by running one report connecting both...


  • You knew it was coming…TransUnion | TLOxp has announced that they are raising the prices of searches conducted in their investigative research database, effective January 1, 2015. While still relatively inexpensive, these new charges represent a doubling of existing rates. In an e-mail to customers, TransUnion | TLOxp said: Your new rates for these items beginning on January 1, 2015, will be...


  • Instagram is a social networking site focused on sharing images and video. Users can also record and share fifteen second videos. Because Instagram started out as a mobile app, the Web site actually feels a bit like an afterthought–with not very much functionality.          (function() { var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/...


  • Bing has launched a new search function that allows users to easily retrieve content from Twitter using either the hash symbol ("#") or the "@" sign as part of your search.
