PROJECT: SOCIAL MEDIA DATING APPS - A WARNING TO THE PUBLIC!

YOU MAY SHARE THIS PUBLIC DOCUMENT
 

SSS feels obliged to address recent incidents reported to the South African Police Service involving individuals who have faced abduction, kidnapping, abuse, and ransom demands after connecting through online platforms like Grindr.


Your safety is of utmost importance, and it is critical to share essential safety measures to help you protect yourself when using these platforms.


Grindr is an online dating application that uses location-based social networking and is designed for gay, bisexual, and transgender people.


It was one of the first geosocial apps for gay men and has since grown to become the world's largest and most popular gay mobile app.


However, such an app can attract predators that target vulnerable individuals. There are also other platforms that focus on specific groups such as widows, widowers, divorcees, and children, which when used, people need to exercise caution.

 

SAFETY MEASURES:


Video Call Recording and Screenshots:

  • Before meeting someone in person, engage in video calls and take screenshots.

  • This can serve as valuable evidence in case of any untoward incidents.


Maintain Detailed Logs:

  • Keep a comprehensive record of names, contact numbers, dates, times, and locations of your interactions.

  • This information may be crucial for authorities if needed.


Be Cautious with Food and Drinks:

  • Exercise caution when offered food or drinks.

  • Keep a clear head and be mindful of your surroundings.


Pepper Spray:

  • Carry pepper spray as a precautionary measure.

  • It can provide a quick and effective means of self-defence if needed.


Inform a Friend:

  • Always let a trusted friend - know your destination and share a copy of the details.

  • Regular check-ins are essential for your safety.


Avoid Travelling Alone and at Night:

  • Whenever possible, avoid travelling alone. o Having company reduces the vulnerability of being targeted.


Uber Safety:

  • If using ride-sharing services like Uber, share the vehicle's registration number and driver details with a friend via messaging apps like WhatsApp.


Public Meeting Places:

  • Choose public locations for initial meetings.

  • Crowded places can deter potential wrongdoers.

Trust Your Instincts:

  • Trust your instincts and consider terminating the meeting if something feels off or uncomfortable during interactions.


Emergency Contacts:

  • Save emergency contact numbers on your phone and have a quick dial option for local authorities.

  • Be prepared to act swiftly if needed

 

Report any suspicious activities or incidents to the local police. By remaining vigilant and taking proactive steps, we can contribute to a safer online dating experience for everyone.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: All potential clients need to be aware that owing to the nature of our work as specialist investigators there are people who have been caught on the wrong side of the law - who are trying to discredit me - Mike Bolhuis and my organisation Specialised Security Services - to get themselves off the hook. This retaliation happens on social media and creates doubt about our integrity and ability. Doubt created on social media platforms is both unwarranted and untrue. We strongly recommend that you make up your minds concerning me and our organisation only after considering all the factual information - to the exclusion of hearsay and assumptions. Furthermore, you are welcome to address your concerns directly with me should you still be unsatisfied with your conclusions. While the internet provides a lot of valuable information, it is also a platform that distributes a lot of false information. The distribution of false information, fake news, slander and hate speech constitutes a crime that can be prosecuted by law. Your own research discretion and discernment are imperative when choosing what and what not to believe.


STANDARD RULES APPLY: Upon appointment, we require a formal mandate with detailed instructions. Please take note that should you not make use of our services – you may not under any circumstance use my name or the name of my organisation as a means to achieve whatever end.
