Private investigators put a substantial amount of thought, training, knowledge, predictability, detail and understanding into each and every case. When called upon, investigator professionals take the time to understand your objectives, get a thumbnail overview of each situation, and quickly determine if a desired result is feasible within the confines of your expectations and costs associated. Investigations are conducted under the guidance of counsel to ensure the integrity of the investigation, guaranteeing absolute discretion, confidentiality and compliance with the legal system.

The Framework for Intelligence Gathering – The Three-Pronged Approach

The three-pronged investigator approach aims to uncover as much fact-based information as possible from three key areas of intelligence. By gathering information from all three angles, private investigators are able to overcome the potential pitfalls and/or associated risks of focusing on only one area of investigation. The three distinct investigator areas are:

Online Sources – Online information and open-source databases offer a quick, easy and cost-effective way to gather intelligence. The most common examples include websites and social media platforms. While online sources are cost effective and easy to access, information is reliant on third-party sources and must be vetted to ensure accuracy.

Source-Based Information – This method of investigation aims at getting to the source of information. Common examples include utilizing federal, state and local repositories, computer forensics and internal/corporate documents. The advantage to this area of intelligence is that you are able to gain a more in-depth picture of specific facts, with the drawback that this information is not readily available and risks anonymity.

Human Intelligence – This involves gathering information that cannot be obtained from the previous two sources. This often includes third-party interviews, mobile or physical surveillance, and dumpster diving. While eyewitness accounts can reveal credible intelligence that would otherwise be impossible to uncover, sources may have a hidden agenda and cannot necessarily be trusted.

All three approaches present their own benefits and risks, but when used collaboratively, they provide the ideal opportunity to discover critical information. If you are curious about a corporate, personal or domestic issue,

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
