Top tips for hiring the best private investigator to tackle your case

If what you’re looking for in terms of evidence of any wrongdoing is of an irrefutable quality, whether proof that a spouse is cheating or your numbers fundi is cooking the books, then there are a few top tips that go a long way to ensuring you hire the best private investigator in South Africa.

Knowing what to ask the private investigator when you first contact him will go a long way to ensuring you do hire the best, and don’t end up with evidence that’s tainted and of no value.

Set aside any preconceptions you may have about private investigators and keep these questions in mind as your top tips for hiring the best private investigator to tackle your case.

Does he have the experience needed to suit your particular case?

This is very important. You need to know that he has the experience and knowledge to handle your particular case. For instance, an investigator who only carries out investigations into fraud won’t do you any good if what you need is a good cheating spouse detective you can trust.

How long has he been in the industry?

If the private investigator you’re chatting to has been in the field for many years already, you’re looking at a good indication of the level of experience a private investigator has right off the bat.

Does he cover a broad range of investigations?

It’s a good idea to hire a private investigator who can offer a full range of services, so that he isn’t restricted in what he can do to deliver the results you want. For instance, you may be hiring him to find proof of infidelity, but also to find assets that may are being hidden in the run up to a divorce case.

This calls for undercover experience, as well as the ability to analyse and collate reams of sensitive data, to provide every aspect of evidence required by your lawyer.

Is he upfront about costs?

If, from the outset, the investigator is open with you about costs up front, you can begin to relax. If you’re really lucky, you’ll deal with someone who knows exactly how to deliver excellent results without fleecing you or padding a non-existent expense account.

The best will always make sure that the investigation doesn’t trail on endlessly in order to milk you of your last dime, so if he doesn’t really want to talk costs, move along!

Do remember though, that there could well be additional costs along the way, but if he’s a guy with integrity, he’ll let you know what they might be.

Can he offer references?

Yes, you can ask a private investigator for references. He will know exactly how to do so without compromising any client, and what they have to say will go a long way to making you feel more at ease in talking to him.

Can he guarantee a result?

It’s possible that you hire a private investigator to prove whether or not your spouse is cheating, only to find out that it’s not the case, however, the one thing the private investigator you hire should be able to guarantee, is that you will be completely satisfied with the conclusion of the case.

Is your information safe with him?

Vital! You need to find out what you can expect in terms of confidentiality and the safety of your personal information. A really good private investigator will make sure that any information on clients and cases is kept securely off-site of his office, so that not even a random break-in will compromise your privacy.

Partner with King Investigators to protect your business

There are many reasons that a business may need the services of a private investigator, reasons that range from petty theft to major misappropriation of funds, and this is where King Investigators in Johannesburg and Pretoria come into the picture.

Owner Jacques Botha and his top team of private investigators have been in the industry for over ten years, combining extensive skill set and experience to deliver the highest level of professionalism for clients such as law firms, corporations and insurance companies on a business level.

The theft of sensitive information has become a lot easier to get away with in a technological landscape that is constantly changing, which, while making life easier for businesses, also offers criminals better tools with which to defraud and steal from companies.

In order to be able to carry out a broad range of investigations within the business sector, King Investigators not only uses the state of the art technology to track down criminals, they also offer the vital exploratory and analytical skills necessary to bridge the gap between criminal and civil cases.

Many of the business investigations easily call for a combination of investigative services, such as using undercover surveillance and data tracking to pull all the threads of an investigation together, without alerting the suspected offender.

Even if employee theft is involved and you call the police, you’ll still have to have evidence of the theft before the police can do anything, which is when most corporations call in a private investigator.

With the investigator on the case, all evidence is gathered legally and all the facts expertly presented, so that the business owner is then able to take further steps, whether for a court case or dismissal.

Bottom line – no evidence, no case!

Instituting background checks into potential employees is an excellent first step towards protecting your business, and this is an area in which King Investigators steps in to make sure that the information given to you by the candidate is in fact true.

A background check should also be first on the agenda when you consider taking on a business partner, or for instance, if you’re planning on buying another company.

Better that you know what you’re letting yourself in for before there’s any need to call the team in to investigate an actual crime.

In the day to day running of a corporation it’s not that easy to catch those guilty of misappropriation of funds, assets or products, and it’s even more difficult to get to the bottom of crimes such as internal and external embezzlement, or the theft of trade secrets, without the appropriate experience.

It is at times like this that the experience King Investigators brings to the table is of high value to company owners and executives, and they know exactly where to start investigating.

If your company is experiencing losses for which there is no easy explanation, or you need assistance with any of the above, please contact Jacques for a confidential chat about how to get to the truth in the matter, the right way.
