Marilyn Hawes, CEO of Enough Abuse UK and `` MOST INSPIRATIONAL WOMAN OF 2017``

I employed ‘Are They Safe’ to investigate my husband. I had suspicions that he was having an affair so I decided to employ a private investigator. I picked this company as they had fantastic reviews and I had also read excellent articles about them in the press. I am so glad I used Are They Safe, I was given hourly updates and the photos and videos provided to me were excellent quality im still unsure how they managed to do ¬†such a good job without getting noticed!! Unfortunately for me i was right and my husband was in fact having an affair with his co worker. Very upsetting to find out but I am a glad I did. I would really recommend this company. Thank you for getting me the proof I so desperately needed.

Claire King, London

Laura and the Team were exceptional. I instructed Are They Safe to gather some evidence for me in relation to a child custody investigation. I can not thank you all enough. I would not hesitate to use this company again. Highly recommended.

Mr Lewis, Guilford

This agency are exceptional. Not only are the staff totally understanding, kind and caring, I also got the results I needed. I am so impressed with this company. Thank you so much for all your help and kind words.

Ms Forte, Hastings

‚ÄėAre They Safe‚Äô, is thought to be the first of its kind, with its founders offering to undertake comprehensive searches of public records to verify someone‚Äôs identity, marital history, finances, and uncover any criminal convictions.¬†Anyone worried about a prospective or current partner, a potential son or daughter-in-law or a business partner, can pay a fee and be supplied with a report of the kind usually compiled by private detectives at much greater cost.

David Rose, Mail on Sunday

Matters of the heart and emotion are the most challenging and demanding aspects of life.  I turned to Laura and her team to guide me on the reasons I was searching for on the matter of a recent relationship break up and if there was any third party involved causing the breakup.  They were very professional, understanding and provided not only the guidance I needed, they supported me through a difficult dark time.  Cannot say enough about Laura and her team.  Thank you for doing what you do and just being all round amazing.

Mr S Birla, London

I am so glad I used Are They Safe. I met a man on a well known dating site who had told me that he was single however i became suspicious when he never used to answer my calls and would always have to call me back. It turns out that he was married with three children!! I wish i had known about Are They Safe a lot sooner. Without a doubt i would recommend their services and use them again if i felt the need to.

Miss Nolan, Birmingham

From now on I will background check every tenant with this company! Thank you to Are They Safe from saving me from a potentially very problematic tenant.

Mike Owens, London

Brilliant service!! Claire, Emma, Laura and the team are exceptional. I am so happy to have located my father after 30 years. Thanks so much.

Mrs Ashdale, London

Thanks to this company I now have the details of the Individuals who were running a Scam investment company and conned me out of a large sum of money . I cant tell you how grateful I am, having their details now means I am now able to start court proceedings in order to try and get my money back. Thank you for all your hard work.

Ms Lai, Essex

Superb service, caring team, excellent Investigators. I can’t really say any more than that. Thank You!!

Mr McDermont, Kent

Laura is one of the most beautiful, kind yet strong as a bear people I’ve been lucky to meet. She has found the facts and continue to support for months afterward. A true diamond and excellent company if you need help xx thank you Laura and team x

Shelley Breakell, Leicester

Are They Safe offer a very professional service to clients in need of reassurance or protection. They have assisted hundreds of individuals in a positive way with good outcomes.

Harry Fletcher, UK's Leading Criminal Justice Expert

Laura was incredible. I was in a bit of a mess after 7 months of 1000’s of phone calls from a guy who promised to meet me so many times and never showed up but confessed his undying love and future with me. Suffice to say he got in my head and I wasn’t functioning at all. He would pick me and drop me when he wanted to and I knew there was a reason why. He had total control over me. I called Laura and within an hour she had given me the information I needed on this guy and¬†of course, he wasn’t who he said he was; 23 years older actually so no wonder he couldn’t meet me. As much as this is still really raw, she gave me closure that I needed to move on with my life. Not only that, she is warm and kind, easy to talk to and can totally relate to what you are going through. If you are in the slightest doubt about who your partner is, or need to check someone out before you date them, call this company. It could save you so much pain and heartache.

Angela Stott, Surrey

I would always use Are They Safe to verify any individual i met online now especailly after being a victim of catfishing. Thank you for stopping me falling victim yet again. Turned out this person didnt exist and the passport information they had given me was fake and had been doctured to look like a real passport. Thank you to your investigators for finding out the truth for me.

Mrs Dennis, Manchester

Mr Deare, Essex

I am so grateful to Laura and the team. I can not thank this company enough not only for providing me with the truth but for having such big hearts. There are very few companies around today that operate with complete honesty and integrity but Are They Safe are most definitely one of them. Thank You Laura, I am unsure how I would have ever found out the truth if it was not for Are They Safe and yourself.

Mrs N Hassan , London

A friend of mine recommended that i used Are They Safe to background check someone that i had met online. Luckily i did, turns out he¬†is 30 years older than what he said he was. Now i know why he never wanted to meet up!!! I don’t think i would be able to go on another date now without using Are They Safe’s Services first!! Excellent service and highly recommended.

Mrs Abdullah, Dubai

Excellent service cant recommend this company enough. Staff are very friendly,  kind and approachable.

Mr Mason, Cardiff

Exceptional service. I instructed Are They Safe to carry out surveillance for me. I have come to the conclusion that your investigators must be invisible as i do not know how you got some of the photographs and videos that you did without being noticed. Remarkable. Great service and would use again.

Mr Yang , London

Having met someone from London online i wanted to check on her relationship situation as some things that she told me were not adding up. Turns out she was married already. Although not the outcome i was hoping for this company saved me a lot of heartache in the long run. Thank you.

Sarah M, Surrey

I instructed this firm to carry out an asset trace. I was amazed that over £800,000 of hidden assets were uncovered which has without a doubt helped me prove my case in court and hopefully this evidence (which has been submitted to the court) will ensure I get a fair settlement. Well done and honestly i can not explain how grateful i am to all of the team at Are They Safe

Jade M, Bristol

Thank you to Laura and Claire. Brilliant service and one that I would recommend to anyone who is in need of a detective agency.

Mrs T, London
