How Echosec Helps Uncover Fraud

Agencies, such as Echosec, are changing the way we see the online world. Echosec is a popular, up and coming application that allows the user to search via a map system in actual time all over the world. It is widely used among members of the government, police, military and tech savvy private investigators. The free Echosec service enables you to explore public posts from well-known networking sites such as Twitter, Flickr, Instagram and Foursquare through the map system and is available to the general public.

On Echosec, anyone can highlight a certain area on the map. Then, it will instantly tell them where there have been foursquare check-ins, Instagram photos taken, tweets on Twitter, photos uploaded to Flickr and even where ships and boats are. As more and more children and teenagers are exposed to and proficiently using these websites, the chances that someone can find their location greatly increases. More often than not, children are not fully aware of exactly what they are putting online, in regards to photos and personal information.

Once a child (or anyone for that matter) shares a photo on Instagram of what they ate for breakfast, it will be placed on the map on Echosec allowing you to zoom right in to find the exact house the photo was taken in. This amazing feature serves the Triton Group desktop investigations team rather well.

Let's say that a man is wanted for workers’ compensation insurance fraud. Naturally, this man does not want to get in trouble or possibly face jail time for his crime. He would be evading the law (and any investigators) in every way he could. However, his child may not be so quiet in the online community. This child just posted a photograph on Instagram to share with her friends. Now is when Echosec is able to help private investigators in finding the wanted man. The child's photo just popped up on Echosec, stating their exact location. Private investigators will be able to confirm that location through their discreet and watchful eyes. They may even have the opportunity to snap their own photos to prove that this man is undoubtedly involved in insurance fraud. Thank you, Echosec.

For another illustration on how Echosec works for private investigators, let's follow this story. A woman is on workers’ compensation for an injury she sustained on the job. This injury prevents her from walking without the use of assistance, such as a cane. As she goes about her life, trying to maintain her injury, she makes one big mistake. She checks into a national park through Foursquare. Her purpose in doing this was to inform her friends that she was going hiking. She worsens her situation by posting a photo on Instagram of her standing proudly on top of a mountain she just climbed.

This woman just made the task of proving her guilty of fraud rather easy. Private investigators now just have to report to the respected companies in order to close up this case. Again, thank you, Echosec.
