UK Private Investigator Agency

One of the most common enquiries received in our UK Private Investigator Agency is related to suspicions of a spouse being unfaithful. These are all suspicions based on many irregularities such as a change of behavior, a partner working late or even as simple as taking out a gym membership… Yes, really!

As A Private Investigator, What We Recommend You DON’T DO…

Drawing up a conclusion or even confronting your partner on the back of suspicions is treading on dangerous grounds. In many cases, clients call our UK Private Investigator Agency after they have confronted their partner and they’re getting no answers. They may have even tried investigating the matter themselves but have drawn a blank. This causes great difficulties as not only have you alerted your partner that your onto them but your partner is also going to be extra cautious from hereon in.

What Any Experienced And Reputable Private Investigator Would Recommend

In the first instance we would advise you to make a log of all the changes that you have seen in your partner. Even as far as the extra overtime at work or having to work over the weekends. In many cases we have unearthed that working over the weekend actually means a romantic get together… and of course that’s not with the partner. Another compelling sign is the extra attention paid on one’s appearance. Of course there is nothing sinister about looking after one’s self, but when it’s only whilst away from home and away from one’s partner… well that’s another story entirely.

How We Recommend You Compose Yourself

No doubt, what you’re experiencing is most probably tearing you apart and has turned your world upside down. You may have been married for over a decade and thought you had the perfectly family with beautiful children. So now, you are faced with these unexpected challenges, how do you react?

Hiring A UK Private Investigator

Hiring A UK Private Investigator

How often are you faced with a situation where you feel hiring a UK Private Investigator is the only option? Not very often… right? So where do you start and how can you make sure that the Private Investigator your thinking of hiring is the right choice for you. Bearing in mind that the private investigator industry in the U.K is not currently regulated, this open the doors for many rogue, fly by night individuals to set up and practice without any skill, experience or qualifications.

Before Hiring a Private Investigator, What should You Look Out For?

In the very first instance, the chances are that you did a quick search on google for a private investigator and felt compelled to call one of the first few listings at the top of the page. Please note that just because someone is listed in the top few positions on google does not mean that they are experienced and reputable. Anyone can pay to be listed in the first few listings and this does certainly not mean that this is the right fit for you. I appreciate that this may be a very emotional time in your life which is why you need help, so the last thing anyone want’s, is that you fall prey to a rogue firm.

First Step to take before hiring a Private Investigator

The very first thing I would recommend that you do, is call the number advertised on the listing during office hours and see if the call is answered. Many private Investigators embark on the journey of becoming a Private Investigator but start of as a part-time venture alongside their day job. Do you really want your case handled by a part-time private investigator? No… I didn’t think so either! If the call is answered, that’s a good sign. Now discuss your situation with the Investigator in great depth and take all the time you need. Don’t be rushed to just quickly summarise the situation. If you feel that you are being rushed and the conversation is diverted to the fee early on in the conversation, that’s generally not a positive sign and you should begin treading on the side of caution. As professional Private Investigators, our job is to help people. How can one expect to help someone or best advise them on their situation if they are not taking the time, to listen to the client?

How Does the Private Investigator Suggest They Can Help You?

Once you have briefed the Private Investigator about your situation, you should now expect a quote…right? Wrong!
You need to establish if this Private investigator has dealt with such a situation in the past and don’t feel afraid to ask about a past case. Of course the Private Investigator can’t reveal any sensitive information, but they should be able to give you an example and of course how they helped the client. Right now, you need to gain confidence in the Private Investigator you’re speaking with before discussing any fees.

Are the fees clearly quoted in a written agreement?

Being quoted a fee over the phone is fine but do not commit and make any payments over the phone or on a website without reading through the written contract. Any reputable UK private investigator will first send you a written contractual agreement clearly stating the official company registration details and address. This agreement must also clearly outline exactly what services you are paying for and what the private investigators obligations are to you. Without this crucial document, do NOT proceed. Over the years I have had many clients hiring our services after being completely disappointed with another firm where they have paid for a service without signing an agreement and of course that makes it extremely difficult to obtain a refund.

Private Investigations In The Workplace

Private Investigation In The Workplace

Private investigators aren’t just for the movies, or extreme cases you hear about in the news; they’re an effective way to check up on happenings within your business if you suspect one or more of your employees might be doing something under the radar.

Hiring a UK private investigator to assess or watch an employee, or even a business partner, will help your worries. Even if nothing sinister is revealed, it will help put your mind at ease nonetheless.

Missing stock uncovered by Private Investigator

Depending on the type of business you run, whether that’s in hospitality, working with food or drink, or a clothing store, missing stock can be a huge financial worry to any business owner. Sometimes, the explanation is perfectly innocent, but other times it can mean someone within the workplace being untrustworthy, and taking advantage of the situation. A private detective will help in investigating one or more particular employees to help you get to the bottom of missing stock. This could involve monitoring CCTV footage, following individuals or installing secret cameras.

Private Investigator Discovers Financial discrepancies

Similar to missing stock, sometimes books don’t add up either. Financial discrepancies can be extremely worrying, especially when staff have access to tills and safes. Private investigators can help gauge the severity of the issue, by investigating particular staff and watching behind the scenes for any suspicious activity. If staff are involved in stealing or moving money from the company, this is, of course, illegal and necessary steps should be taken following the result of the investigation.

Suspicious events unearthed by Private Investigator

It’s a rarity, but sometimes people take advantage of their workplace, even when it’s not them running the business, and try to operate other activities out of here without the boss knowing. This could include running private events at a restaurant and taking all of the profits, or the same with a retail store, after hours. It could also be a case of illegal activity taking place in the workplace, such as drug dealing or money laundering.

In any of these scenarios, a private detective will assess the situation, delving deep into the actions of staff members and come to a conclusion.
