If you’ve noticed a private investigator following you, you might be wondering how to get rid of them. It may sound bizarre, but one of the best ways to stop someone digging through your business is to hire a private investigator yourself. We offer counter surveillance services to help protect businesses and individuals, not only from other PIs but from anyone’s prying eyes. Here’s our guide to stopping unwanted investigations against you.
Contact Law Enforcement
A private investigator isn’t allowed to harass you. Legally, harassment is unwanted behaviour that makes you feel offended, unsafe, or embarrassed. It includes stalking, which is invasive observation. Private Investigators are allowed to follow and record you, so long as they don’t cross the line into stalking.
If a PI makes you feel unsafe by following you or contacting you through social media, you should consider getting in touch with the police. They might not be able to do anything straight away, but they’ll be able to prevent any future stalking activity.
Advantages of Using Private Detectives
None of our detectives have ever been discovered on the job without intending to be. Approaching the investigator yourself isn’t a good idea. While we can vouch for our agents, we can’t guarantee the conduct of investigators working for other companies. Confronting someone you suspect of investigating you could create a hostile, potentially dangerous situation.
