In a world fraught with deception, misinformation, and cheating, you may need a professional, skilled and experienced private investigator who can ethically obtain requisite information for you. Know Your Objective • It is imperative to know how to describe what kind of investigation you are seeking.

Beware Of Inexperienced Infidelity Surveillance Investigators

2021-11-29T04:29:33-08:00October 11th, 2013|

When it comes to Infidelity Surveillance Investigators you should know who to select. Here are 2 things you have to look out for in a good investigator: 1.  They know how not to be discovered by the person they’re tailing. You don’t want your partner, who you suspect to be cheating, to discover that they are being followed. It jeopardizes your chances of finding out the truth and can create more tension in your already strained relationship. However, in order to increase their bottom line, many Private Investigative companies hire newcomers/wannabes willing to work for low wages with little to no field experience. Lack of [...]

Authored by Robert Mann of Worldwide Intelligence Network. Over the past few years we’ve been asked by numerous business owners if we could identify and investigate people who posted scathing anonymous internet reviews about their establishments.  The owners wanted to reach out to those reviewers to obtain more information and to make good on any poor experience that customer had. In today’s highly sophisticated age, it is nearly impossible to identify an anonymous email addresses especially those that pay to email through anonymous email websites. Those websites specialize in protecting the true identity of the person sending the email and only by filing a law suit and serving [...]

One of the most fulfilling and utterly devoted occupations in the world is that of a Bodyguard also known as an Personal Protection Specialist. A professional Body Guard’s job is to assume the  awesome responsibility of protecting someone’s life. A Personal Protection Specialist makes certain that all possible contingencies are investigated in advance so their client’s passage is safe and secure from possible threats. Many lay persons believe that a tall heavyset foreboding appearing man is enough to scare off a possible perpetrator, Unfortunately, that’s not realistic in the world we live in.

How Do Workers’ Compensation Fraudulent Claims Affect You?

2020-03-30T06:02:18-07:00March 21st, 2013|

Billions of dollars in premiums are collected by insurance companies that provide Workers’ Compensation Insurance coverage to businesses and municipalities of all sizes. Premiums are predicated upon the risk within a specific category of work being performed.  As an example, a clerk would not be considered a high risk while a construction worker who works on high rise buildings would be a high risk.  In other words the more likely to be injured on the job the higher the premium.  However, that is not the problem within the Workers’ Compensation Insurance industry. The problem lies with fraud. The Beginning of Workers’ [...]

Each and every case is a challenge and each and every case brings with it a new learning experience. What did we know about Counterfeiting in China or Internet Identity Theft, or Infidelity and Criminal Defense prior to becoming a Private Investigator, the answer; little [...]

A victim of a crime called us very disturbed about the failure of law enforcement to act upon his US Post Office mail box being broken into and as a result his mail was stolen that contained newly issued credit cards.
