At Maley Investigations, we have discussed the fact that a Private Investigator is not what you see portrayed on television. We are not sneaky and depraved people that television shows lurking around pictures of people in compromising situations. A good private investigator (as we discussed in the article “What to Look for in a Private Investigator”) should be ethical and work with and within the law. It is a sad truth, but there are a few bad seeds that will do anything , legal or illegal to please a client.
Hiring a Private Investigator should be an intimate process – not a stressful one. Often times, cases require the knowledge of sensitive, private, and secret information involving you, your family, and your friends.
Many states only require a person to pass an examination to title themselves a ‘Licensed Private Investigator.’ We all know, however, that a certificate on the wall does not warrant a person to be an experienced investigator.
In today’s high-tech world, information is everywhere...including information on how to hack into your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Worrying about the safety of your information has become increasingly common, especially when the news constantly reports malicious attacks on your online accounts from Twitter to Gmail to LinkedIn.
With the divorce rate in America constantly being reported between 30 to 60 percent, chances are that the majority of the people one meets on the dating scene is a divorcee. Does ‘divorced’ matter? Does it matter if he/she has been divorce three or four times?
There are many occasions in which a client asks our investigators to do something that is illegal and/or unethical. This is probably because of the misconception of exactly what a private investigator can legally do. Television portrays private investigator as super sleuths that can obtain any information that you could ever want or need, but this just is not true. A private investigator does have the ability to obtain records and information that normal civilians cannot, but there are occasions where it is not possible.
There are few aspects of this job that truly disgust me, but this was most definitely one of the worst. While on an interview, an elderly man told me a story about his grandson - or at least he thought it was his grandson.
