Shopping for bad guys using Harmari and RAPID

These series of screenshots will demonstrate how easy it is to shop for bad guys on the Harmari Search for Craigslist, and also to make connections with other data sources such as the Regional Automated Property Information Database (RAPID) developed by Business Watch International.  RAPID tracks pawn shop, second-hand dealer, and scrap metal data for law enforcement.

When “shopping” for bad guys, follow these easy steps:

  1. keyword search for something interesting, e.g. “gift card”, “store credit” or anything else suspicious
  2. (optional) refine by brand name in the title
  3. sort results by phone number, and look for frequent repeat posts under the same phone number
  4. stretch out the page to the maximum of 100 results per page
  5. once you found a phone number of interest, drill down by clicking “Other Ads”
