The “Deep Web Search” and “Google Search” cheat sheets have been updated to reflect new information and capabilities in conducting your own research on people, places, companies, and other matter-related information. The links to the newly updated sheets are located below.
Using “open source information (OSI)”, sometimes referred to as “Publicly Sourced Information”, one can research a variety of information related to a case: Retained or opposing experts, litigants, other witnesses, company information, etc.
Effective use of this type of research can uncover bank accounts, holdings, affiliations, activities, locations, social network accounts and a host of other information that would otherwise remain unknown.
In mid-2010 Vidoc Razor published free cheat sheets, as well as a blog post on how to use the sheets to research people involved in a matter: Expert witnesses, places, companies, etc. It is worth it to re-read that post to refresh your memory on how to use the sheets.
The original post can be found here: https://inforensics.vidocrazor.com/2010/11/02/qualifyanexpert/
Since then, the sheets have been very popular, and I have updated the sheets on a yearly basis.
Where Do I Start?
Start with the “Google Cheatsheet” PDF document that I have linked to this post. For life beyond Google you can look at the “Deep Web Cheatsheet” that is attached.
