The essential guide to IT transformation

Former federal agents and police officers in the US are prepared to stalk women and tap phones so that wealthy bachelors can get a date.

A US Web site - Coincidencedesign.com - claims its team of crack private investigators can carry out discreet surveillance on a potential partner before setting up a "coincidental" meeting with a suitor.

The combination of in-depth background information about an individual's likes and dislikes, coupled with a chance meeting has, according to those behind the site, the potential for a fruitful encounter.

The service costs an eye-watering $78,000 (£54,000) although the cash doesn't guarantee marriage or a long-term relationship.

However, it does buy the kind of covert surveillance that is practised by the secret service.

The shadowy people behind the site are adamant that security is key to their activities. Nor do they claim that their operation is illegal in any way.

According to the site's Q&A: "Since our job is getting at other people's data, we are all the more aware of the need to protect our information. Customer data, along with investigative reports, personnel records and other sensitive data, is stored on hard disks which are hard-wired to physically self-destruct when tampered with."

If this sounds more like Mission Impossible than missionary position impossible then you might be onto something.

The reaction of many people who've come across the site so far has either been one of incredulity and horror at such a surreptitious service, or one of amusement and admiration for such a beautifully crafted hoax.

Unfortunately, those behind Coincidence Design refuse to talk to journalists for reasons of "security".

However, one clue to the authenticity of this unique matchmaking service might be found via the link "Webwork Credits" that appears on the site. This takes you to Saberworks.com which describes itself as "developers of cutting edge concepts".

As well as Coincidence Design, there's also a link to The Sensation Zone, whose mission is to ease "sexual frustration" in the world by creating a series of sex hotels for consenting adults.

Curiously, all sexual activity is carried out in the pitch dark to ensure the anonymity of those engaged in this intimate stress-busting workout.

"The Sensation Zone could be considered as the hi-tech dotcom culmination of the free love movement of the Sixties," the site explains.

Unfortunately, to find out where your nearest "Sensation Zone" is located you'll need to complete a mathematical puzzle. This is not a test of your numeracy skills so much as an indication that you're serious about the Sensation Zone.

However, expect to be disappointed. Clear this final hurdle and you'll discover that there are no Sensation Zones up and running yet but that the venture is seeking investors who could earn huge profits if they're willing to take a risk. Who knows, maybe enough to recruit the services of a CIA-trained private investigator who'll stalk potential wives for you - and all in the name of true love. ®
