There is Light in the Darkness of a Marriage, You Just Have to Open Your Eyes

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 [...]

Anyone Can Be Sexually Harassed, Proving It Is What Matters

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 [...]

A Name is a Name until it has Criminal or Civil Ligations linked to it

Conducting a background investigation upon someone may seem fairly simple these days because so much information is now online and so many courts allow access to their records.  Many times you have to have some type of subscription to access more detailed information.  There are many sites online that allow you to run a name, hopefully the name you put through their system isn’t common, but if it is, you could be getting information on multiple individuals who share that name, even though they may have different dates of birth.

International Investigators conduct background checks and perform due diligence research for the private sector and for many businesses and corporations.  Many times a company will take the word of a prospective employee: they have never [...]

When Creepy Stalker Notes Turn Out to be Something Else

Marti found the first anonymous note lying on top of paperwork on her desk when she came back from lunch break. It was hand printed on common lined paper that was folded in half. The printing was bold and slanted slightly to the left. To Marti, it looked like a man’s writing. The note said, “I’m watching you.” At the time, Marti dismissed it as a joke by a bored co-worker and threw it away.

A few days later, Marti found the second anonymous note on her car windshield when she was leaving work for the day. This note looked just like the first one but this time it said, “Pretty in pink.” She was wearing a pink blouse that day. Marti was upset and [...]

It Just Seemed Too Good: How An Employee Gained Unauthorized Access to HIPPA Records and Lost Her Job

Do the best you can, be kind and courtesy, have good work product and treat clients, patients and co-workers with respect, work well with others and be on top of your game.  All these applied to our Client, Amanda’s Office Manager Sharon, she was a team player from the outside and yet, things just seemed too good.   That saying:  If it’s not broken, don’t fix it!  So Amanda disregarded signs of change.  She didn’t notice Sharon was beginning to be a few minutes late getting to work, the phone rang a couple more times than necessary, the once chipper and eager girl she hired was more lax and a bit distant, but her work was good, so “don’t fix it” applied until one day [...]

Knowing the Unknown is a Valuable Tool

It isn’t easy to learn the truth and sometimes the truth isn’t easy on us either.  International Investigators, clears the path of misconceptions, intuitions and gossip and focuses on facts.

Sometimes the facts do not change the situation, and then there are times the facts create clarity and we see through all the haze and come out of the situation we are currently in better prepared to fight or to just let go.  We all want to know the truth; we want to know the facts so we can move on.

There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t receive calls, an emails or a walk ins from someone lost in their life.  They cannot, by themselves, muddle through their situation without assistance from [...]

Just an Average Joe

Patty was in her 70’s, divorced for over 15 years and had been married for 35 when she contacted International Investigators. Her personality made us smile and realize life doesn’t end because you are in your golden years, sometimes it can be the beginning.

Patty met George through a mutual friend who thought it might be nice if they could have dinner together, maybe a movie or two or just someone to have a conversation with. That’s how it all started she told us. He was handsome, in his early 70’s, had lost his wife so long ago he couldn’t remember the year, but knew he could never find anyone that could hold a candle to her or her memory. Patty was intrigued with his [...]

Drown the Pool Contractor

A middle aged couple came into our office with a very peculiar request.  They had contracted a pool company to install a fiberglass pool in their backyard.  It had been a dream of theirs to have their kids and grandkids could come over and enjoy day long activities with them.

It was in early November they had contracted to have the pool installed.  They told us the contractor at that time was very nice, was very active and communicative to them.  Our Client said his wife had talked to the contractor and told him of their water problems in the basement, to which he replied he could help with that, they would install the pool and have a retaining wall towards the back of it [...]

Hi-Level Background Checks & Finding the Right Person

Applying for a Hi-Level Position, such as a CEO, CFO or President of a large company can be just the beginning. Before any Corporation can make a decision in hiring such an individual they will hire a private investigator with International Investigators, to have a Hi-Level Background Check conducted any perspective candidates. Private Investigators are being utilized in this capacity due to their ability to access information many businesses would not have access to and here at International Investigators we have the ability to access some of the most sophisticated databases not available to the public and many small and inexperience investigative companies.

In one such hiring, we conducted three simultaneous background checks upon three very impressive men with an equally impressive Curriculum Vitae’s. The [...]

Hoosier Daddy – Finding a Missing Biological Father

It happens every year around Valentine’s Day. We get a couple of calls with specific requests from a spouse in finding birth parents. And that is exactly what happened with Lorraine. Her husband wanted to know how to find a birth father. His mother was involved in a short relationship and he was the result of it. To find a biological father is a lot easier due to the surname and men rarely change their last name. All the information she had was his first name and a possible last name. She never told him their relationship produced a child. She was from a very well-to-do family and her parents hid the fact that she was pregnant from their friends and convinced her to [...]
