    Asset Search Uncovers Ruse of Properties Transferred to Business

Asset Search Uncovers Ruse of Properties Transferred to Business

A search to locate hidden assets is not always linked to divorce proceedings. International Investigators is often asked to complete an asset investigation to find hidden assets in business situations.

Because of our professional standing and expertise, International Investigators has access to data bases and changes which makes locating hidden assets efficient in both the time and cost involved.

Recently we were contacted by a lending organization and asked to see if we could be successful in finding hidden assets they suspected a borrower owned. The company had secured a judgment against the borrower relating to a foreclosure on a piece of property. The borrower was linked to two companies, both of which had been dissolved. Or, at least they had been dissolved administratively through paperwork.

    Private Investigators Follow the Money to Help Determine if a Lawsuit is Viable

Private Investigators Follow the Money to Help Determine if a Lawsuit is Viable

Do you ever wonder how attorneys decide if they will take a case, especially those cases where the attorney only gets paid if they win the lawsuit?

We get calls from attorneys all the time asking, “Can you check this out? I want to know if there really is a case here.”

We call it a pre-litigation case. It works like this:

An attorney is approached by a potential client with a case.
The attorney’s compensation would be on a contingency basis, meaning he would get a portion of the award.
He contacts us to investigate whether or not the subject of the suit has the means to pay; assets to cover the amount of a court-ordered award.
Depending on the outcome of our investigation, the attorney would either decide [...]

    Combining Hidden Asset Research and Computer Forensics Makes for Informed Divorce Decisions

Combining Hidden Asset Research and Computer Forensics Makes for Informed Divorce Decisions

I don’t usually keep track of celebrity lives, but I read the news about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes getting divorced. Apparently he had no idea – or at least that what the news reported.

After dealing with many divorce situations as a private investigator, I can say that that is not all that uncommon, no matter what everyone thinks.

Often one party has made the decision and plans for quite some time before actually informing their spouse of their intentions. And that is why we find so many times one side is hiding money in divorce and the other side has absolutely no idea. Even if there is a marriage separation, hidden assets is a topic that comes to the surface.

We had one case where [...]

    Hidden Asset Research Reveals One Lead That Unravels the Entire Scheme

Hidden Asset Research Reveals One Lead That Unravels the Entire Scheme

An attorney representing a bank recently contacted International Investigators to conduct some hidden asset research.

He was representing a lending firm. The organization was holding paper on a property that had gone into foreclosure. The lender believed the customer had assets to offset the debt on the property but had hidden them.

What was really interesting was that the customer was letting the property be foreclosed upon, but was not filing bankruptcy.

The case has been pending for quite some time. Two years ago when the problems started, there was a search undertaken to identify and locate hidden assets. However, nothing was found.

But now, two years later, they have asked us to re-investigate to see if we could locate hidden money somewhere. They still suspected there were [...]

    Finding Hidden Assets is Like Asking, “Where’s the Beef?”

Finding Hidden Assets is Like Asking, “Where’s the Beef?”

Every day there is someone coming up with another way they think will be successful in hiding assets from a former spouse, litigants or even their partners.

There is a practice becoming more and more common. We call it a “practice” because no matter how often someone does it, it won’t be perfect and eventually, they always get caught.

The practice is providing a wrong social security number by switching two of the digits when opening an account. The bad guy figures if he gives an inaccurate social security number, no one will find out – even if someone does an asset investigation searching for hidden bank accounts or stock accounts.

But someone WILL find out—it could be an investigator, the attorney or the authorities—and then everyone [...]
