SEATTLE, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Secure Show, a quick and easy-to-use online I.D. verification service, launched in beta today in answer to the critical need for safer face-to-face meetings for real estate professionals, online buyers and sellers, and online friendships. It's the first proactive and preventative solution that verifies the identity of both parties prior to an initial face-to-face meeting. An industry-first, Secure Show fundamentally changes the way in which online business and personal relationships connect in person, and serves as a thorough first step before initiating face-to-face meetings.
The patent-pending Secure Show process launches with a primary focus on improving what is becoming a disheartening statistic — "Crimes by Appointment." (Reference: Fox News.)http://video.foxnews.com/v/1529294592001/thieves-target-victims-in-crimes-by-appointment/ That term has come to describe any appointment set virtually with the premeditated intention to commit a crime once both parties meet in person. Communities across the United States have experienced a visible rise in "Crimes by Appointment" targeting real estate professionals, online buyers and sellers using classified services like Craigslist, and dating crimes that began as online friendships.
Lynn Robertson, Founder and CEO of Secure Show, has been a leader in the real estate industry since 1987. Robertson created Secure Show after a life-changing realization that she had been denying her fear and compromising her safety every time she met an unknown online client in person for the first time. It was that awareness that became the catalyst for creating a service that empowers real estate professionals, and others, to determine if the person they've met virtually is who they say they are before meeting in person.
"With over 25 years of real estate experience, I know first-hand the inherent dangers about meeting prospective clients privately," said Robertson. "This is a solution I hope will provide peace of mind to thousands of people in either their professional or personal lives. Increasing the safety and security of all people is what Secure Show is all about."
Knowing that background checks don't always catch criminal records and because they happen without the second person's consent; they are not a deterrent to crime. Secure Show involves both individuals wanting to meet and begins with a trusting assumption; sharing an I.D. verification and photograph so the parties can meet in confidence. Secure Show was created to encourage self-responsibility and accountability, while experiencing the benefits of getting out into the world and meeting each other in person.
