    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 [...]

Marriage Infidelity Claim Leads to Unexpected GPS Tracking

Some of the cases we get at International Investigators can be pretty interesting – especially when it comes to suspected marital infidelity cases. Take for example, the case of the jealous, controlling husband who believed his wife was having an affair.

Bob* and Meredith* had only been married for a year. While they were dating, Bob had been very sweet and attentive toward Meredith. But after their marriage, Bob was becoming more overbearing. He not only controlled all of their finances with an iron fist, but whenever Meredith came home late from work, he would question where she had been and who she had been with.

When Meredith told her parents that Bob had accused her of having an extramarital affair with liaisons at a local [...]

    GPS Enabled Shoes Not a Tool in Missing Person Investigations

GPS Enabled Shoes Not a Tool in Missing Person Investigations

The telephone rings in the International Investigators’ office and the caller asks us if we can find a person. We have a well-deserved superior reputation for finding people because we have developed specific strategies in how to locate people using access to proprietary data bases along with the investigative tactics.

It would be easier for everyone if all shoes worn contained GPS equipment. You do know that there are GPS shoes available now, right? Primarily marketed for people with dementia or Alzheimer’s, GPS shoes are satellite monitored with real-time tracking. Patients walking out of facilities or a front door without being noticed could be a thing of the past.

The GPS-equipped shoes are also for those people of all ages with a memory impairment; autistic teens [...]

    If You Think You Need to Talk to a Private Investigator, You Probably Should

If You Think You Need to Talk to a Private Investigator, You Probably Should

Years of experience has taught a few things to the professionals at International Investigators. And one of the top rules of thumb we encourage you to follow? Well, we suggest that if you're thinking that you should speak to a private investigator, chances are good that you should do exactly that.

In our business, we've often seen that when a person has a hunch, it's for a good reason. Even if you can't quite verbalize what you think is out of place or wrong or not honest, always listen to your intuition. In the opinion of International Investigators, that sixth sense or intuition or whatever you choose to call it … well, it's rarely wrong. Around our office, we have lots of respect for intuition.

    Cell Phone Legal Compliance Dictates Protocol at International Investigators

Cell Phone Legal Compliance Dictates Protocol at International Investigators

A recent article in Slate caught my eye. Writer Ryan Gallagher brought to light a gray area regarding private investigators and the use of GPS tracking equipment.

He talks about a January ruling by the Supreme Court, saying it “held that law enforcement use of GPS trackers to monitor movements constitutes a ‘search.’”

It brought to light the importance of working with a professional private investigator. Because International Investigators works with attorneys and clients around the nation and globe, we are very diligent about staying on top of the laws and regulations regarding investigative techniques – and act accordingly.

This doesn’t only apply to GPS tracking devices, it applies to other areas such as cellular forensics. There are very specific processes and protocols for acquiring devices for [...]

    Spy Detective Uncovers Covert Tracking and Listening Devices

Spy Detective Uncovers Covert Tracking and Listening Devices

What’s smaller than a deck of cards and able to reveal everywhere you drive?

A GPS system.

And we’re not talking the GPS system that came with your vehicle. Here at International Investigators, we are looking for the GPS systems that have been installed on your vehicle without your knowing about it.

Some people think that if another GPS tracking device was put in their car, it would interfere with the GPS system they use to get around town. Not so. Both devices are receivers and neither would interfere with the other one.

As spy detectives, we usually get a call from an attorney who has a client that believes someone is tracking him. We can complete Technical Surveillance Countermeasures, or what is called a TSCM sweep, to [...]
