Realistic Scenarios That Show Why My Online Course Saves Your Career And Personal Finances...

The cases below illustrate how you can be exposed to liability when your social media evidence is shared with third parties.

In my online course, you learn expert skills to have peace of mind knowing that if your evidence is turned over to third parties or you make public statements, your insulated from liability.

For instance, in the missing toddler's case below, the investigator would have learned what public statements could trigger defamation cases, and stayed far away from making those comments, especially to the news media. Although the case was dismissed, the investigator lost time, money, and may have scared off potential clients who don't want to hire an investigator involved in controversial lawsuits.
