Insurance Fraud Investigations Reveal Blatant Untruths

When it comes to insurance fraud, the bad guys can be quite brazen. Take, for instance, a North Carolina couple who were arrested for insurance fraud and obtaining property by false pretense.

It is alleged that Mister filed a claim after an automobile accident with information about lost wages due to the accident. The couple is accused of inflating the amount of wages that were lost and, on top of that, the company he worked for did not even exist.

They went to a great deal of trouble to document wages and the company in order to file the claim.

Here at International Investigators we are never surprised or taken aback by the extremes that some people will go to in insurance fraud cases. We have uncovered [...]

    Down to the Wire Fugitive Recovery Agents Look to International Investigators

Down to the Wire Fugitive Recovery Agents Look to International Investigators

At International Investigators, no two days are ever the same.

We work to solve employee embezzlement
We do our best to find missing people.
We undertake investigations for medical malpractice lawsuits and personal liability cases.
And we also work with fugitive recovery agents, or bail

Time is of the essence in many investigations, but always in fugitive recovery cases. If their client skips bail, then the bondsman loses all of that bail money unless the fugitive can be located and returned for court.

Obviously, bail recovery agents are always anxious for our help. They come to us as their last resort, so time is always in short supply.

We use an assortment of investigative tools to fit each individual case. But for bondsmen, investigation often requires a mix of digital forensics, [...]

What DO Private Investigators DO?

It’s not unusual for furious people to call or visit International Investigators. They aren’t furious with us, but with a situation and that is the reason they are contacting us. And sometimes with that fury comes an intent that we cannot service.

For instance, one man recently came in with a situation that had him in a blind rage. He was red in the face and yelling. He knew an employee was stealing from his supply house and he wanted this employee stopped. He wanted us to, “threaten him with his job and intimidate him into confessing publicly.”

We let him have his say and then we told him we would not, could not do as he requested. He stopped and told us he thought that [...]

    Caustic Employees May Be as Harmful as Theft in the Workplace

Caustic Employees May Be as Harmful as Theft in the Workplace

Ed and Georgia were extremely conservative business owners. Last year, they realized a long time dream. They expanded the square footage of their business, took on a couple of new projects and hired four new employees.

But for some unknown reason, employee morale noticeably began to dwindle. Employees more frequently called in sick. Some actually left the company without providing clear reasons for why they were suddenly unhappy.

On their own, Ed and Georgia tried to interview workers about the shift in attitude. But they were unsuccessful in getting to the root of the problem.

Then in the community, Georgia heard a couple of negative rumors about their business. By that point, Ed and Georgia were more than concerned about the problem. They were panicked. Their employees [...]

When Your Quest is Truth; Hire a Private Investigator

Law officers and ambulance drivers, emergency room doctors and defense attorneys often boast that they see the weirdest of the weird. But sometimes the weird stories can be added to the discussion by adjustors for insurance companies.

One particular story involves an adjustor in Colorado and her claimant, who insisted that her vehicle had dropped into a vertical mine shift. Knowing that the police department had no time to search endless acres of rocky terrain in the area of Baily, Colorado, the adjustor called on a private investigator. She asked the private investigator to do everything they could to locate the missing vehicle and solve the fishy-sounding story. After many long hours and long days of searching the rough terrain in off-road vehicles, the investigators [...]

    Product Liability Cases Could Hinge on Investigative Services

Product Liability Cases Could Hinge on Investigative Services

Why would your attorney need an investigator for a personal injury lawsuit or a product liability case?

Besides helping your attorney compile evidence, documentation and coordinate expert witness research, analysis and testimony, there are two other important roles International Investigators can take on in product liability lawsuits:

Locate and identify additional potential claimants
Research consumer complaints

It is not unusual for a personal injury lawsuit to evolve into a product liability lawsuit as well. And, if you or someone you care about has experienced a loss or have a claim against the manufacturers of a product, chances are you are not alone.

Finding others who have a potential claim is part of a product liability investigation. In fact, product liability investigations may be the only way to uncover others [...]
