Private Investigations

It Felt Right until it Didn’t

When our Client engaged our services, he gave us some background on his son. Both he and his wife were very proud of their son’s choice of friends and extracurricular activities. Some might say he had a good head on his shoulders.

After graduating from college, he enrolled in a trade school. Just a few months after classes started, he brought home a date for a family dinner. His date appeared to be friendly, but something about her didn’t sit well with either of his parents.

Later in the month during a father/son outing, his son made an odd remark about his new girlfriend, she had a car, but didn’t drive, she talked about her friends, but he had yet to meet the man she always [...]

To Text or Not to Text

I have heard Client’s say they don’t answer calls from private numbers, they don’t answer calls from numbers unknown to them and they basically just do not answer their phone.  When asked why they have their phone they reply, to text, tweet, post and check Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Google search, listen to music, podcasts, and whatever else they do with their phone besides actually making and receiving phone calls.  Communication comes in many forms and for anyone younger than 40, audio (actually talking) is the least type of communication used.

I think to myself, well then voicemail should soon be obsolete and maybe we don’t need our ears or our mouths, but then how can girls take photos of themselves with puckered lips?  Now for [...]

D.I.V.O.R.C.E

Divorces can be nasty; Divorce Attorneys can be nastier and with good cause. In some cases, the respondent in a divorce proceeding didn’t even see a problem in the marriage, they thought they were happily married and were taken by surprise when they received the legal documents. Then there are situations when the divorce was long overdue but the thought of the fight was just too much to handle. Infidelity divorces are painful and are usually denied by the partner involved in a relationship outside of the boundaries of marriage. When there isn’t actual proof, just an intuition and you need to know the truth to decide to either end the marriage or forgive. And in some divorces, one partner is far savvier than [...]

Rectifying a Huge Back Child Support Issue

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’ [...]

A Private Investigative Company like International Investigators, All In Investigations, Inc. works with an Attorney to obtain the best results for their Clients.  With over 1.2 million attorneys in the US and 80,000 taking the bar exam every year, the need for assistance in providing the court with accurate information is extremely high.  We have many attorneys requesting our services on behalf of their Clients.  An attorney must have the facts and many times, hiring an Investigative Company is the most effective approach to obtain pertinent information to present to the court.

Haunted – Why a GP Hired Us to Recon Her Own Office

Cassie owned and operated a successful general practice in a nearby town. Her office staff was small with only a handful of long-term employees operating out of a former residential house in the historic part of town. Cassie’s practice had been at this location for 12 years and there had never been any out-of-the-ordinary activities, unless you count the patients’ occasional unusual medical conditions.

However, a few months ago, Cassie’s receptionist and another staff member starting making jokes about the office being haunted. They would complain that when they set objects down, such as a stapler or even personal objects like lip gloss, the item would be gone when they went back to use it later. The missing object would show back up again in [...]

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 [...]

No One is Ever Going to Hear My Conversations, Or are They?

Social Media: There are so many ways to communicate with social media, but if you break it down, your communication is either by word of mouth or the written word (picture). When you verbally communicate, your message is delivered and heard, then responded to or ignored, but you know right then whether your point was taken or rejected.

In the written form, usually by e-mail, text, or some form of social media, it is derived from a device, a cell phone, a tablet, a laptop or a tower computer. Your personal information is stored in these devices, and sometimes the cloud…and no matter what you write, text, post somebody somewhere that you don’t even know may have access it. That’s the chance we take when [...]

    They Thought They Permanently Deleted Files From Their Computer

They Thought They Permanently Deleted Files From Their Computer

Before writing this blog, I did some research on what computer users perceive when they delete a file from their computer.

Instructions on how to delete.

When you delete a file, it's usually moved to the Recycle Bin so that you can restore the file later if necessary. For information about recovering a file, see Recover files from the Recycle Bin.

To permanently remove files from your computer and reclaim any hard disk space they were using, you need to delete the files from the Recycle Bin. You can delete individual files from the Recycle Bin or empty the entire Recycle Bin at once.

Open the Recycle Bin by double-clicking the Recycle Binon the desktop.
Do one of the following:

To permanently delete one file, click it, press Delete, and then click Yes.

    Don’t Do Nothing, Act Upon your Beliefs, you Could be Saving someone’s Life

Don’t Do Nothing, Act Upon your Beliefs, you Could be Saving someone’s Life

John knew he needed help. He had given his son, Thomas every opportunity to turn his life around and yet his son continued on the same downward spiral and then blamed his father for his many failures.  They say a parent is responsible for their children’s actions and that good parenting produces good children. That is no always the case. We tell our Clients that children learn by example, but some kids just never apply themselves and nothing a parent can do to encourage them to be more successful or responsible makes a difference. And this is exactly how our case began with John.

Thomas had some shady friends, although he had been childhood friends with them, he chose to maintain the friendship when he [...]
