The decision to hire a Private Investigator is never an easy one. Most times personal and confidential information may have to be disclosed. The financial investment that such a decision entails is usually unexpected and one that the majority of potential clients are unprepared for. Very few companies maintain an emergency Private Investigator fund for a just in case scenario.

What can a Private Investigator do to help my business? Here are some of the ways:

Pre-employment Screening

Many companies these days require background check on potential employees. During this process, an applicant’s background is investigated to verify the accuracy of his claims and to look into any possible criminal history or red flags.

Prospective Business Partner

Close partners are often a necessity, especially in many high growth markets. The right partner can help breed success but just as easily, the wrong partner can deliver failure. A background check on a prospective business partner can help you in understanding their management style, political connections and providing an auditable trail that is a necessary tool for conducting business today.


Any shrewd investor would never invest money or time in a new company or other financial deal without completing the proper amount of research. A company may appear to be perfectly legitimate, with nice offices and a readily available list of previous client referrals, but may very well be a sophisticated scam. A Private Investigator can check public records for bankruptcies, tax liens, licensing compliance, and any other judgments or defaults.

Security Consultations

A business may need to secure their premises, assets and information. In some cases an overnight security guard or an alarm system may be all that is required. Another companies needs may be more involved, requiring sophisticated electronic surveillance, a loss-prevention staff and strict computer security. An experienced Private Investigator can recommend security services and techniques to help prevent theft or to provide for employee safety.

Workers’ Compensation Claims

It is estimated by insurance companies that twenty percent of all Workers Compensation claims are fraudulent. Considering that one solitary fraudulent claim can cost a business tens of thousands of dollars, it is a serious issue.

A Private Investigator can delve into employee claims to verify if they are legitimate. Sometimes by simply observing the claimant in their every day activities it is possible to obtain evidence that a fraudulent claim has been submitted.

By vigorously pursuing fraudulent claims a company is making a statement by warning other employees that the company pursues every claim.

Policy and Procedures Examination

Businesses enact policies and procedures to ensure that duties and services are performed in a consistent manner. If some of these policies and procedures are flawed, the business itself can suffer. A Private Investigator can review, test, challenge, scrutinize and correct deficiencies for any business.

If your business already has established Policies and Procedures, a Private Investigator can help you determine if they are properly meeting your needs.

So you see, hiring a Private Investigator for any or all of the reasons listed above in this article can benefit your business financially as well as protecting your assets allowing you to conduct your daily business with sound piece of mind.

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
