There are many myths that exist about private investigators. You may have pre-conceived assumptions that private detectives drive around in a red ferrari spying on dangerous criminals. In the odd case, this might be true. In general, however, it isn’t. Here are 7 things you may have not known about private investigators:

  1. They protect small businesses – Owning a small business is a major responsibility. It can be a large stress on the owner. Leveraging a private investigator, small business owners are able to vet potential employees to ensure they get thorough background checks on individuals. In modern times, small business owners value having contributing employees who positively impact their bottom line. When hiring, private detectives can ease the risk and stress by getting their due diligence done properly.
  2. Vetting Babysitters – Leaving your kids and family in the right hands is very important and can be stressful to parents. It’s difficult to know what goes on when you leave your precious child in the hands of another human being. By hiring a firm like Investigation Hotline, you can ensure your nannies and babysitters are taking care of your child properly. You gain the peace of mind knowing that your family is safe and getting the best care possible.
  3. Online Dating – Whether or not you’ve tried it, online dating is a new fad that is here to stay. However, online dating can also be dangerous and should be approached with caution. Even if you are careful, you may be putting your personal safety at risk by meeting another stranger. Private detectives can give you the peace of mind that the person you are dating is who they say they are, and not a known criminal, for example.
  4. Custody Battles and Divorces – When it comes to custody arrangements and divorces, your child’s safety should be your utmost concern. Using a private investigator can ensure that your former husband/wife is abiding by the court ordered custody agreement. If need be, private detectives can provide legal proof in the form of pictures and video that is admissible in court.
  5. Issues of Domestic Violence – Whether or not you’re aware, domestic violence is a serious and prevalent issue. It affects millions of people in North America each year. By hiring a PI, you can make sure that a loved one is safe at times of fear and worry about another individual’s safety. Alternatively, Investigation Hotline can also help victims of domestic violence and identify when people may be at risk of such abuse.
  6. Reverse Call Services – Do you ever get random calls from the same number that you don’t recognize? You may try to search the internet for such a phone number, but your searches yield you no results. Who is calling you and what do they want? Private Investigators have the ability to identify names attached to phone numbers to solve your mystery.
  7. Investigation of Investments – If you’re an investor, dumping money into a project or company can be extremely risky and potentially hazardous. You want to know everything that you can before making an informed business decision. If you don’t, you risk being scammed out of your hard earned cash. Private investigators can help you research companies thoroughly so that you can have peace of mind that your money is being used in the best way possible.

A serious error in judgment on my behalf has put me at risk of ID theft. During a phone call I supplied personal info to someone who I believed was with Revenue Canada. Immediately after I realized I had fallen for the CRA scam. Shame on me!  Since the incident I've been frantically taking steps to fend off the dire repercussions that such a mistake can have. This has included: Filing a police report, Filing a report with the Canada Anti Fraud center, Adding flags to my bank accounts, Putting up Fraud alerts on the 2 main credit bureau's. I've even purchased some Identity theft tracker software to monitor my info. I contacted Investigation hotline to see if there was any additional measures I could take. The agent applauded me on the steps I had already taken. They also had knowledge about the CRA phone scam itself that helped settle my nerves somewhat. With all the fear and anxiety I've been enduring for the last while it was assuring to speak with someone familiar with the actual risk potential.

I called investigation hotline after I provided somebody a home renovation and they refused to pay, I tried to bring them to court- hired a lawyer and found out I was given false information on the contract. After speaking with Mitch and explaining my situation I felt that he sincerely cared about my case and was quick to find out the information I needed. Within a couple of days, he had all the information I needed. I could not thank Mitch enough. I would highly recommend investigation hotline to anybody as I feel they are experts in the field and act fast and work efficiently. I felt that Mitch had a deep understanding of what I was going through and was empathic and understanding. I could not thank him enough and will be using this service again if needed. Kaitie S

Apr 02, 2018 I needed an investigator on Sunday Easter Week End. No one cared about the situation except this Company. The investigator was dispatched to the location without minutes. did not care about the Money to be prepaid or secured. The investigator took it personal. He felt of my situation and Specially when it came to my kids issues. My Ex-wife was cheating in a hotel north east of Toronto. He Located her within 1/2 Hour. This a true story; I never thought Investigator cared about the situation but the money.. This company did not care about the money, they finished the job, send me the invoice and i Paid him more than what he asked for. Sometimes money does not mean any thing to some one wants to get a load off his back and find the truth about his wife,,,, FOR SURE THIS COMPANY TOOK A HUGE LOAD OFF MY BACK. THANK YOU SO MUCH JOE MICHIGAN

I'm really grateful to Mitchell and his team and I do not know what to add yet, thank you, thank you and guys are the best.
