Due Diligence

Hop, Skip and Jump to Conclusions

Listen, listen carefully and you will learn more than you really need to know when a Client is telling their story. You will learn their truth, which could be a one-sided coin.  From their words, you mentally begin to create a path for your investigation direction and build a foundation for your case.  But not this time!

There are such things as Clients who just need to talk.  They need to know their words are being heard.  They want what is best for them and many times only them, forgetting that the truth of the situation is different from their own.  Take for instance a Client who was adamant that her husband was cheating on her.  She provided stories, events, persons, situations, locations, anything that [...]

When You Are Wrongly Accused?

My Client, George, who has had a life partner (Mary) for over 20 years, was falsely accused of the mistreatment of her. And the accuser, a relative of Mary’s, appeared to be somewhat believable. Was it out of jealousy, monetary reasons or just their belief that their mother was being cared for by my Client, a man whose commitment to Mary did not include a “License”. The accuser had actually made several statements she held a license in healthcare and knew what was best for her mother. My Client was adamant he provided the best care possible, but the accusations made against him were compounding, allegations of improper feeding, over medicating and unsanitary conditions and he had come to the conclusion he could not [...]

Scam or Reality?

A man walked into my office and sat down at my desk to share his love story.  He had met a wonderful woman online from another country.  They had been communicating for over a year and he was contemplating traveling over 4,000 miles to meet her in person.  He wasn’t a rich man, he didn’t own a house, apartment living was good enough for him and his cat, he didn’t drive a fancy car or wear expensive clothes, but yet, to her he offered more than she could ever obtain on her own.  She wrote beautiful emails, quirky texts, and they had an account set up that allowed them to talk on the phone for pennies a minute and they talked every day at [...]

Bugged and Confused

Your words are repeated, your private communications are known, your strategy is exposed, your business has suffered and you just cannot say for sure how this was done.  It can happen and has happened to many private individuals and businesses.

There is information that needs to be shared between business partners, attorney and clients that need to remain in strictest confidence and yet, somehow somebody or a competitor knows exactly what is going on.

We first want to say “mole”, but we know the individuals involved would also experience a loss if the information was shared to the outside world, so how is the information being shared?

Cellular devices are common practice.  We use them for various types of communication.  Telephonically, emails, texts and we use them [...]

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 [...]

Hiring an Investigative Company will Ease your Mind

Being a mom isn’t easy, being a working mom that is out of the house five days a week while someone else is taking care of your child is even more difficult.  Choosing between family and career has been a long debate for many couples who embark on career/family and childcare.

We got a call one day from a frantic woman who explained she was an attorney in a large law firm and had just gotten out of a meeting where she learned from a co-worker’s nanny that she observed Katie’s little girl and her babysitter at the museum and the babysitter was on a bench texting on her phone and Katie’s daughter was running around and had been out of sight of the babysitter [...]

    What’s the Best Thing You Can Do When it Comes to Partnerships?

What’s the Best Thing You Can Do When it Comes to Partnerships?

One thing we have come to realize at International Investigators is that our business is emotional. Not that we are emotional, but that emotions run high with our clients.

It’s obvious that finding a missing person or pursuing evidence to exonerate someone wrongfully convicted or charged with a crime would be emotional. You might not think that many business investigations are quite emotionally-charged as well, but they can be.

One case, for example, brought tears to the eyes of a big, burly business man. It was a form of business espionage, but not the kind that would come to mind.
When Business Gets Personal
His reputation in the marketplace was he was a personable and fair business man. He was good at the computer services he offered and [...]

    Investigation Teaches a Business Lesson to an Unsuspecting Teen

Investigation Teaches a Business Lesson to an Unsuspecting Teen

Parenting is a tough job, especially when you want to protect your child and she is a very headstrong teen who thinks she understands everything about the way the world works. At least that was the comment from a worried parent who called International Investigators.

Katy* got her first job at the local ice cream shop and she was so excited. She had visions of money and freedom and a chance to get her own car. Her mom, Sandra* was equally as happy. She felt this was a good step for her 16-year-old daughter to learn the value of working for your money and the responsibility of a job.

However, shortly after she started, Sandra was getting “weird” feelings about the job. When she talked with [...]
