We recently got a call for a request for lie detection testing due to a spy on cell case. According to Luann, her husband of 20 years had been unfaithful for years. She was certain he had installed some type of cell spyware on her phone so that he could determine where she was, allowing him the opportunity to meet up with his lover. She also inquired into a cheating spouse investigator watching where he goes and with whom he spends his free time with. She even accused him of stashing away money so he could spend it on his girlfriend and wanted a financial investigation completed. She also accused him of employee embezzlement. Her frustration level was high and she demanded immediate results [...]
Marsha called us one morning stating she needed to hire a private investigator. Ralph, her ex-husband and irresponsible father of her four children, owed over $30,000 in back child support. The court awarded her $75.00 per week support for each of her four children but that was 11 years ago. Just about the same time Ralph disappeared. Marsha worked two jobs but she did have the help of her family for emotional support.
Every year Marsha contacted her County Prosecutor’s office to see if they had located Ralph. She was always told they “were still looking”. They supposedly were coordinating with the Internal Revenue Service in case he had a tax return that could be garnished, but to no avail. They had posted on several States’ [...]
“SHRINKAGE” is the Industry Term to Describe Theft or the Mysterious Disappearance of Assets from a Company is the industry term to describe theft or the mysterious disappearance of assets from a company.
Based on the average of various knowledgeable authorities, 4.2% of the gross revenue of a company is stolen by employees. For example, if a companies’ annual gross revenue is one million dollars then employees are stealing $42,000. Or, if an American made automobile costs $20,000 to manufacture than 840 bucks is added to the price to cover employee theft. Theft by employees takes many forms: embezzlement by employee, outright stealing of inventory, raw materials, scrap, time-card cheating, phony disability claims or worker’s compensation claims, phony FMLA excuses, embezzlement of cash or receivables, [...]
Sexual Harassment Is Sometimes Hard To Prove. There are always three sides to every story. His……Hers…..and the Truth, but when Laquita came in our office and sobbingly explained that no one at her workplace believed she was being sexually harassed by a supervisor at her workplace, we did. She was very convincing. A large man, twenty years her senior and a supervisor in another department always seemed to know when she was alone and would take that opportunity to grope her. When she told him she was in a committed relationship with children, he left her alone for a while. She confided the incidents with her direct supervisor who brushed it off saying he was a very upstanding religious man with a fine family. He didn’t stay [...]
They depend on us, experienced private investigators, for the answers. We are seekers of the truth, and that’s what the Judges and Juries want to know in order to make informed decisions. Attorneys are only as good as the information they have to work with. Sometimes their clients and the witnesses involved, have trouble providing exact accounts of pertinent circumstances involving the incident at hand. Our databases and information sources are usually more sophisticated than the ones available to most law firm’s investigators and paralegals. In most cases, the information is obtained quickly.
Our investigators are equipped with high-tech video and audio recording equipment that can memorialize statements and activities for evidence. We have specialists on staff that are experts in the field of computer [...]
Mrs. Merrick’s attorney had a problem. She needed to find two missing heirs but had little to go on; only names with no other identifying information. Mrs. Merrick set up a living trust twenty years before her death, but never updated it, making this heir search more difficult. She left her large estate to Mary Danielson and Mitchell Roberts or their heirs. That was it; no additional information as to her relationship with Mary and Mitchell, or their ages or location. The attorney’s firm was the trustee because Mrs. Merrick’s father had dealings with the firm in years past, but no one at the firm knew anything about her other than the fact that she was a widow and had no children.

It all started with a lie detection test at International Investigators. It was a she said, he said situation with both parties confident their beliefs of the situation would clear the air and settle the turmoil between them. What it turned out to be was something much deeper and emotional than either expected and the direction of their relationship took a dramatic turn towards a journey neither he nor she imagined.
First, let me explain that a detection of deception test is quite different than what is viewed on television programs. Nobody is asked any questions during the test that have not been thoroughly discussed prior to the test, so in reality, anyone taking the test knows upfront what they are going to be asked. [...]
