Online Gaming and MMO Investigations


Online games such as MMOs can be an investigators goldmine. We can usually gain full access to public information and private information within the content of the pages, which may include photos, conversations, messages, others within the network, and more depending on the site and system. Our agents have also been successful in setting up online sting operations and can in most circumstances infiltrate sub-networks in which subjects belong.


Online Gaming Investigation

Online gaming and MMO profiles contain substantial amounts of information, both public and private, about people, including photos, conversations, messages, friends and associates, locations, and more. Investigations can mine for information or set up sting operations through these platforms.

Online games and MMOs (massively multiplayer online games) provide a graphical interface for users to interact with each other in real time as they play the game. Text-based and voice chat are common staples of these games. The most popular form of MMOs are MMORPGs, or MMO Role Playing Games, such as World of Warcraft and Second Life. These games allow for users to create an avatar, or a virtual online representation, of themselves and play through the game world as this virtual rendering of themselves. The majority of the gamers are participating solely to enjoy the game, but some are using them for other reasons, such as stalking and harassment, illicit affairs, and possibly even fraud. Investigations into these gaming platforms are more complex than social networking sites, because the information is not set up to be viewable like a profile page. Instead, our investigators conduct virtual surveillance on characters in the game to gather information in real time. Call ICS today for a free consultation!
