3 Good reasons to hire a private investigator to conduct a due diligence investigation on your behalf

Before any deal involving purchasing a new business or investing in another business can be signed, sealed and delivered, there’s a lot to be processed in terms of legalities and the backgrounds of these investments, most of which you aren’t able to do as the average person.

It takes a highly trained private investigator to ferret out any form of due diligence investigation that’ll make sure that by the time you do sign the deal, you’ll be doing it based on a solidly informed basis, to protect your future and investments.

By hiring a private investigator to tackle these issues for you, you will have the true facts about whether the business financials are legitimate and fully up to date.

It’s also about ensuring compliance practices, in terms of having the facts about whether the right processes and procedures have been observed in the company you’re considering buying or investing in, because once the deed is done, it’ll be you that ends up on the raw end of the deal.

3 Good reasons to hire a private investigator to conduct a due diligence investigation on your behalf:

Empower & protect yourself with the right information!

There’s never been any doubt about the fact that information is power, whether used for nefarious reasons or legitimate reasons, which is why it makes absolute sense to hire a professional private investigator to do a complete due diligence investigation into a business you may be interested in buying or investing in, or, in terms of bringing in a new business partner.

Once you have all the facts as presented by the PI at the conclusion of the investigation, you’ll definitely be in the position to make decisions that’ll benefit your business, in the short and long term!

Find out about more than mere financial discrepancies!

A due diligence investigation carried out on your behalf wont only bring to the forefront any financial discrepancies in the business you’re interested in buying, investing in or inviting in a new partner.

The last thing you want is to find out that the person at the head of the business or the possible new partner is lying about qualifications, hiding drug or alcohol abuse, a reputation for damaging sexual harassment or a past that includes having been sued by previous business partners!

You also have every right to know about any other corporate affiliations the business owner or potential investor/partner may have, especially if it clashes with what your business and reputation is about.

Protect the safety of marketing plans & customer & supplier databases

Cyber threats abound, as we know due to the fact that there are crime syndicates making a fortune in getting employees to sell them confidential information about your business. Whether its marketing plans, customer information or new product development, never mind about information about your preferred suppliers, you do need sophisticated security measures in place to protect what you’ve worked so hard to build up over the years.

A highly skilled and analytical private investigator will be able to work with you to tackle areas that may need further security measures, checks and balances in place, in order to protect your information. Your customer accounts and even the agreements you have in place with them is pure gold in the market place of crime syndicates!

Trust King Investigators to be your partners in protecting your interests through professional due diligence investigations!

The benefits of adding professional pre-employment polygraph testing to your HR practices

It’s become common practice for most companies, small, medium and large, to use pre-employment polygraph testing as a general rule in their HR practices, when planning to hire new personnel.

Unfortunately CV’s lie, and crime syndicates stand by to help the person applying for a position to act as legitimate ‘references’, and, while no amount of testing initially can be a guarantee that someone who really is honest won’t fall by the wayside at a later stage, it is certainly going to make your recruitment drive one based on in-depth background checks.

Only a professional private investigator is registered and able to carry out pre-employment polygraph testing and to delve deep into the backgrounds of potential employees.

Set the expectation of a pre-employment polygraph test in place at the outset of a recruitment drive

If someone applying for a position in your company knows from the start that they will be expected to undergo a pre-employment polygraph test, they can decide for themselves whether or not to continue with the application.

No one can be forced to take a pre-employment polygraph test, however, if an applicant refuses, you are then under no obligation to take an interview any further.

A professional private investigator, highly trained to carry out polygraph tests knows his field well and will put the most nervous of candidates at ease in a pre-polygraph test chat.  None of us like the idea, and none of us are angels, however, at the hands of a professional, any potential employee will feel completely at ease by the time the test actually starts, and they will know exactly how it works.

Establishing a precedent for using polygraph tests to limit crime in the workplace

In certain industries, like those in which research and development is a major part of the business, such as the pharmaceutical industry, technology industries or any industry that regularly works on bringing out new products and technologies, it may be worth establishing a precedent for using polygraph tests should an occasion arise that calls for it.

Yet again, you cannot force any employee to take a polygraph test, however, if you conduct seminars via professionals who can explain how these tests work, it will set honest employees at ease if you start integrating polygraph tests at random times purely for company security, or, of course, should there be suspicion of employee crime.

Join the upward trend in pre-employment polygraph testing by hiring King Investigators as your go-to team of professionals!

We know how different every company is, and that most positions being filled by a new employee would have a different level of confidentiality, however, there can be no doubt that instituting pre-employment screening goes a long way towards protecting the most sensitive areas in your business right from the get-go!

Contact King Investigators to find out just how much value these professional, highly trained private investigators in South Africa can assist to keep the confidentiality of your business intact, protect your reputation and your assets as effectively as it is possible to do proactively.

Taking a proactive approach towards protecting your business with the assistance of a Private Investigator in SA!

Having a private investigations company on retainer can benefit your company on many levels, assisting to protect the company’s reputation and brand from reckless and illegal action from either insiders or outsiders.

Company theft statistics are constantly rising, especially in this digital age, forcing businesses to ensure they have the correct safety precautions in place. If you’re considering hiring a private investigator to protect your business, here are a few ways in which they can assist;

Putting proactive employee crime prevention strategies in place

It’s an old adage, but still very true; prevention is ultimately better than a cure! This is where a private investigator can join your business as an employee, undercover, to pinpoint areas where fraud, misappropriation of assets, company time theft or product theft can be tightened up.

It’s about streamlining these areas in order to set rules and regulations in place that will make it hard for any employee to steal from your business, and to clamp down on losses you’ve been experiencing.

The necessity for real evidence of wrongdoing before disciplinary action, dismissal or criminal charges can be taken

Should an employee be suspected of any crime in the workplace you will need concrete evidence of the crime before you do anything. Irrespective of whether its product theft, mismanagement of company assets, kickbacks, fraud or non-existent overtime that’s being paid, evidence will be essential, depending of course on the course of action you wish to pursue.

Hiring a private investigator to come in to carry out undercover surveillance to obtain evidence of employee crime, or administering professional employee polygraph tests, is going to save you infinitely more money than you are more than likely losing already.

He can also assist with ensuring that your security systems and technology involved in surveillance systems is set up in the best way possible to avoid the possibility of tampering, and, they can also advise you on any dead zones that could be problematic and help you to get these covered with surveillance too.

Start from the ground up by hiring a private investigator to work with your HR department for pre-employment screening & in-depth background checks

The bigger your business, the busier your HR department will be, which means that in terms of recruiting new employees, a few suspect people may slip through based on a cursory background check.

Hiring a private investigator to carry out an in-depth background check on potential new employees will go a long way to sifting the chaff from the wheat.

Unfortunately there are syndicates that are so well set up that they will act as supposed references listed on a CV that is made up of lies, and, it’s easy to be fooled by those who seem to be who they say they are, especially in a busy HR department!

In general, companies that have fired employees for criminal behaviour, whatever it may be, will give a reference, and, even though it certainly won’t be a glowing reference, no mention will be made of what the employee has done, which means you won’t have the truth either!

Hire King Investigators in South Africa to protect your business from employee theft/fraud or other blue collar crimes!

With a sterling reputation with legal firms, small to medium businesses, major corporations, insurance companies and workman compensation, you can be absolutely sure that King Investigators in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town will be the best partners you can hire as a proactive protection for your business and legal interests!

Important points to know when planning to hire a private investigator

If you’ve been brought to the point at which you may well need to consider hiring a private investigator in South Africa, you’ll need to know a few things about finding the right guy for the job, to make sure you aren’t misled or set up with useless evidence.

Finding a reputable, registered private investigations company can seem somewhat overwhelming, which is why we’ve set out these few points that you can use on your search for the right PI for your investigation:

Check to make sure he’s licensed as a PI & that his firm is registered with the PSiRA

No PI is allowed to legally operate in South Africa if he is not registered with the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority (PSIRA), which is the governing body of the security industry and holds PI’s accountable for their practices, to the extent that they could face prison for non-compliance.

This is also your assurance that the PI you hire is above board and will make sure that your evidence is legally obtained and irrefutable. Ask for proof of his license to act as a private investigator too, this is very important or you could end up on the wrong side of the law yourself.

Be your own PI when doing a background check on a private investigator!

It’ll be well worth your while to find out as much as possible about any private investigator you are considering hiring. Ask him about how long he’s been an investigator and the scope of his investigative services, and, very importantly, ask for references from clients that have hired the private investigator for a case similar to yours.

If a PI only handles fraud cases, he’s not going to be much help to you if you are dealing with a cheating spouse, which is why it’s good to know his full range of investigative services from the get-go.

Talk about possible costs of an investigation at your first meeting

If there’s one thing you can be absolutely certain of, it’ll be that if you are meeting with an investigator that ducks and dives questions about possible costs that could be incurred during your investigation, you’re at the wrong place!

With a team like that at King Investigators, with Jacques Botha at the helm, you will have absolute transparency about your budget concerns. He and his team have been in the industry for well over 10 years now and are more than willing to discuss openly how you can get results based on your budget.

This is one professional team you can rely on not to pad an expense account with non-existent expenses!

The downside to hiring a non-professional, unlicensed private investigator

The short answer to this? You could be left holding evidence that has been manufactured or obtained illegally, which will get you into hot water in a court, and, you’ll definitely be out of pocket with nowhere to turn to redress the dishonesty and loss!

Contact King Investigators in Johannesburg, Pretoria & Cape Town for the real deal!

If you’re looking to hire a full-service private investigations company in South Africa that ticks all the right boxes, King Investigators is going to be your safest route to an investigation carried out with integrity, honesty and without wasting your time or money!

7 lesser-known facts about what it’s like to be a private investigator

The image we’ve been fed in the movies about shady PI’s is just what it is, an image, and, in most instances, a false one. The majority of private investigators are highly trained professionals who more often than not come from a law enforcement background, which means they know right from wrong in terms of gathering evidence legally.

In general, these professionals are hired to investigate anything from hidden assets to locating missing people or finding proof of infidelity, among other investigative services.

Let’s look at what it really means to be a private investigator for hire, and to clear up any myths and misconceptions about the professionals who deserve better for their hard-earned abilities.

Your PI will tap phones or hack into computers

Not so at all! If you’ve hired the team from King Investigators you’ll find that the fact that they’re all licensed, experienced professionals, means that they do have more leeway in terms of accessing certain records for personal and corporate investigations, however, there are limitations to what they can and can’t do legally in some of these investigations.

Only if the owner of a mobile phone, bank account or email account gives permission can the investigator dig into information that may lead to the discovery of wrongdoing, such as in the case of a spouse suspected of cheating.

A PI can assist if you’re being phished online

For many people involved in romances that start online, private investigators have become a great help in checking into whether the person a client is chatting to is who and what they say they are. This is especially necessary when someone starts suspecting that they’re being scammed by the person they’re chatting to online.

The bottom line though, in avoiding the need for a PI in a situation like this is simply to quit talking to people you don’t know online, however, many still get scammed into parting with a lot of money and more, out of sheer innocence.

Private investigators can break the law

This is a fallacy and misconception that certainly doesn’t suit professionals such as the team at King Investigators! This is a team of professionals who are highly trained to use all the skills and tools of their trade to access information the average person is unable to do, but, they do it by sticking to the code of conduct enforced by the PSiRA in South Africa, which is the governing body that keeps a watchful eye over the conduct of the security industry.

Private investigators are able to carry out in-depth background checks on anyone

The fact is that even hiring a housekeeper or new employee has become a risky business in a climate in which crime rates are soaring. This is when the team from King Investigators come in handy, with their ability to carry out an in-depth background check into anyone new, whether on the romantic front, domestic front or in terms of hiring a new employee.

A lot of people simply aren’t what they say they are or what their CV’s say they are, and, if you want to be protected from the start, an in-depth background check is the most proactive way for you to know what you’re getting into!

Private investigators are experts at undercover surveillance

It’s essential that if your hire a private investigator to carry out undercover surveillance, that you make sure they have on the ground experience in this specialised field.

They have to be able to think quickly and adapt to changing circumstances out in the field, making sure that they blend into the background and in doing so, are not picked up by the subject under investigation.

Book learning won’t help with undercover surveillance; only being out in the field for many years will ensure that you as client will be protected for the duration of the investigation.

No nine to five hours for the private investigator!

In most cases, a private investigator may need to work around the clock to gather information and evidence then have the skill to analyse everything that has been brought to light, in order to provide the client with a comprehensive report and trustworthy evidence at the conclusion of a case.

It’s not a thrill a minute as we have been led to believe, a private investigator often has to spend days analysing reams of data to get to the bottom line in order to provide the information required by a client, which is anything but thrilling!

Hire the best private investigators in South Africa by contacting King Investigators in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town, to discuss the way forward in terms of any investigation you need carried out, whether on a business or personal basis!




Here’s what you need to know about polygraph tests & voice stress analysis services

While it’s true that no one can be forced to take a polygraph test, the fact is that the mere refusal to take the test is going to cast suspicion on someone who is already suspected of a crime, whether for a criminal or civil case.

What is a polygraph test?

If you are facing a polygraph test, you will find that a baseline will be established with the professional carrying out the test, which will also assist to set you at ease about the test. The equipment that is used is able to measure changes in your blood pressure, your pulse rate and your level of perspiration, which will all register differently to different questions.

Be assured that even the most innocent of people are uncomfortable with having to take a polygraph test, however, these tests are accurate enough to prove that you are innocent, or not!

What are voice stress analysis services?

A voice stress analysis test is used to measure changes in vocal chords in response to questions, which can even be carried out via telephone. This test cannot be relied on to be 100% accurate, however, it can help a private investigator to go in the right direction to prove innocence or guilt in any particular situation.

During testing, the way in which your voice changes as you answer questions is measured through using computer software, which will then generate a live report; however, these tests can only be carried out by professionals.

Combining voice stress analysis tests with polygraph testing

These two tests can be used together to get a clearer result overall in terms of whether the subject is telling the truth or not. Although a subject is hooked up to the polygraph machine, a voice stress analysis test can still be carried out without affecting the polygraph test.

The technology behind both these tests, whether polygraph tests or voice stress analysis tests, has come a long way as technology is continuously changing, reaching better and better levels of reliability than ever before.

If you’re going to need someone to assist you with polygraph testing in South Africa, chose a reputable investigative company such as King Investigators to carry out these tests professionally.

This equipment and the tests they are designed for are not toys, and, in the wrong hands, could lead to results that are false, which no one can afford, especially if there is to be any court case in a criminal investigation, or the dismissal of an employee on grounds of theft.

5 Top tips for hiring a Private Investigator in South Africa

Having to face the possibility that you are living with a cheater is never easy, on any level, and, if you’re someone who isn’t willing to deal with the suspicion and all that comes with the feeling that your spouse or partner may be cheating on you, then it’s time to consider taking your suspicions to a professional private investigator.

The suspicions are painful enough to deal with, however, if you’d rather face the truth, no matter how much it hurts, then you need to know how to find a private investigator with the integrity to tackle your case with honesty and compassion.

A licensed, registered private investigator needs to be able to take on a variety of cases, since certain investigations will include undercover surveillance and the need to have the analytical skill to follow paper trails as well to bring everything that’s hidden into the light.

PI’s are hired by private individuals for personal matters or by businesses to assist in identifying employees involved in theft of company property, money or time.

It’s essential that you make absolutely sure that you work with a registered professional; this is easy to do by checking out their credentials with the PSiRA, the governing body of the security industry.

Reasons for hiring a private investigator

People hire private investigators for many varied reasons, some of which include but are not limited to:

  • Investigating crimes and assisting attorneys or the police with interviewing witnesses
  • Tracing missing people
  • Carrying out business intelligence investigations
  • Performing in-depth background checks on potential new partners or investments
  • Carrying out lie detector tests for possible new employees and for employee theft
  • Expose hidden assets in divorce cases
  • Provide proof of danger to children in custody cases

Here are a few tips that will assist you in hiring the right private investigator in South Africa

Do your homework on whether the PI is licensed or not

A licensed private investigator must be able to provide proof of his license to act in his capacity as an investigator. Check into his background and training, as well as whether he operates in integrity and honesty.

Find out what kind of support team the PI has

If you work with someone like Jacques Botha, owner of King Investigators, you’ll find that not only does he have a large team at his disposal in South Africa, which is essential to successful investigations. He has also, over many years, developed strong ties with international investigators, especially when they need someone they can trust to carry on an investigation for them in South Africa.

Make sure he is transparent about possible costs of an investigation

If there’s one thing you can count on with an investigative company like King Investigators, it’s that you’ll have absolute transparency about the costs that may be incurred in taking on your case. This is a team that works within the budget of the client, and one that has built a superb reputation for delivering excellent results without having to pad expense accounts without good reason!

If the PI is willing to bend the rules, move along swiftly

If you’ve been talking to a private investigator that intimates that he’ll bend a rule or two to get the results you want, which won’t be legal, then it’s best for you to move along swiftly.

If you take illegally gathered evidence into court it’ll be thrown out, and, you could end up in hot water for presenting evidence gathered illegally, which leaves you out of pocket and in trouble, which is the last thing you need when you hire a private investigator.

Can the PI guarantee you satisfaction at the conclusion of the investigation?

King Investigators will guarantee your full satisfaction with the results they return to you with at the end of an investigation, and, they’ll do it in the most cost effective way possible.

This team leaves no stone unturned in their pursuit of the truth, and, based on their own integrity, you can be absolutely sure that your information will remain secure and confidential.

How to prepare for a polygraph test

Facing a polygraph test is much easier when you are sufficiently prepared for it and have an understanding of the process, which will be made clear by a polygraph specialist, who will make you feel more comfortable about the test.

Here are a few helpful tips to assist you in preparing for a polygraph test

Ask your own questions about the process involved in the test

In the initial interview with the polygraph specialist, you’ll be able to ask your own questions about the test, so that you can understand how the equipment works, and exactly what it measures once you’re hooked up to it.

You’ll be asked a few questions to get a baseline, a few of which may be ones you are requested to lie about in order to measure physiological changes such as your blood pressure, perspiration and heart rate.

Enquire about which test form will be used

When you are given questions for the test, ask about which polygraph test form will be used, as there are different tests, such as the Control Quest Test, is the most common form used, or the Directed Lie Test and Guilty Knowledge Test form which are also sometimes used.

Here are the basics of what the different tests mean

A Control Quality Test has control questions mixed into the questions. These are yes/no questions.

A Direct Lie Test requires you to directly lie when answering these questions, which is also a way of determining a baseline for the real test.

A Guilty Knowledge Test includes multiple choice questions on a variety of facts which only you and the examiner know about.

Request to see the questions to be asked

You have every right to refuse to take a polygraph test, which may not bode well for you, depending on the circumstances, and, you would have to give written consent to accede to taking the test.

If you have given written consent, you will have the advantage of being able to go through the questions to be asked in the test, which allows you to gain a clearer understanding of the kind of questions you’ll be answering.

Be sure to disclose pre-existing medical conditions that may affect the test results

It’s important that you disclose any pre-existing medical conditions such as high blood pressure and what medication you’re on to control it, to the examiner. This will then be taken into account in terms of the outcome of the test.

Today, it’s becoming the norm for businesses to include pre-employment polygraph tests to ensure that you are who you say you are, that you do have the qualifications you say you have and that your references are genuine.

It is absolutely normal for you to feel somewhat overwhelmed and nervous about taking a polygraph test even though you know you are being 100% honest, just remember that you’ll be in the good hands of seasoned, highly trained professionals who know well how to read more than just what a polygraph test can show!

If you’re looking for a polygraph testing professional to assist you in getting to the truth, contact King Investigators in South Africa to be absolutely sure that you’ll be dealing with licensed private investigators able to tackle a full range of investigative services, as pure professionals!
