Secure Show® Fights 'Crime By Appointment' With New Online I.D. Verification Service

SEATTLE, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Secure Show, a start-up that provides an online I.D. verification service, introduces a new user interface for quicker verifications, addressing the trending issue of "crime by appointment." The Internet age has created a habit of making appointments with new contacts without any concern or preparation. Crime tends to follow the easiest path, so the practice of meeting strangers face-to-face with no idea of who they are, has spawned what the media is now calling "crime by appointment", as seen on Fox News:

Secure Show is the first proactive and preventative solution that verifies the identity of both parties prior to an initial face-to-face meeting. The patent-pending Secure Show process 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.

Retired NYPD detective Patrick Bronson has referred to the practice of meeting someone in person after first meeting online as the "perfect storm." It usually includes anonymity of perfect strangers meeting in "a location that sometimes is decided by the bad guy."  Whether it's to purchase an object from Craigslist, or meet for a first time date, it can be a high-risk scenario. Secure Show provides a service that takes away the mystery by facilitating a respectful exchange of information in a secure environment – I'll submit my identification and a current photo for verification if you do the same, and then yes, let's meet!

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're going to meet is who they say they are, and creating a record of each meeting.

"With over 25 years of real estate experience, I know first-hand the inherent dangers and valid concerns agents have about meeting prospective clients privately," said Lynn Robertson, Founder and CEO of Secure Show. "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, so both 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. To learn more, visit:
