Known as the number one cheating spouse detectives in South Africa, the team at King Investigators have a well-earned reputation for leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of the truth for their clients.

The quality of evidence presented by this team is of such a high standard that it cannot be called into question by any court, whether in a divorce case or a custody battle.

Polygraph Testing

Because of labour laws that make it difficult to fire an employee outright, bringing in the professionals from King Investigators to carry out a polygraph test would be a good place to start.

Through the use of polygraph testing and voice stress analysis testing, it becomes a far simpler matter to find out who is telling the truth and who is lying, and these are results that can then be used to institute either disciplinary action or lay a criminal charge.

Pre-employment Polygraph Testing

Because polygraph testing has proven to be up to 98% accurate, this is an excellent way of sorting the wheat from the chaff when you go through the process of hiring new staff.

In-depth background investigations

We live in an age of misrepresentation, which is extremely prevalent in our culture today, where status and the symbols that go with it are considered to be infinitely more important than being ‘real’ and transparent.

It’s become de rigueur for people to hire a private investigator with the training and experience to carry out in-depth background investigations, in an effort to protect you from possible loss, whether personal or on a business level.

Education, experience and other issues relating to the background of someone you may consider hiring, or dating, can be manufactured with ease in our high speed world of technology, making it well worth your while to get professionals in to make sure you’re dealing with who you think you’re dealing with!

Silent surveillance at its best with GPS tracking from King Investigators

What we hold today in the palm of our hands in the form of mobile phones and other mobile devices such as laptops draped over our shoulders, was just an idea taking shape in the mind of Alexander Graham Bell, until he made the first recorded phone late in the 1800’s.

The giant strides made in technology across more than a century already, has now given birth to the linking of satellites for many reasons, one among them being GPS tracking devices, which serve to track and to give directions.

GPS tracking devices have become an essential tool for companies that manage fleets of trucks and other vehicles, allowing them to keep track of any possible misuse of these company vehicles, no matter where they go.

Used in conjunction with undercover surveillance, GPS tracking devices have become an integral tool for private investigators, allowing them to provide valuable evidence should there be any wrongdoing uncovered.

These tracking devices are also of great assistance when trucks are hijacked, allowing the company security services to pinpoint exactly where the truck has been after the hijacking.

With over 10 years in the industry, the expert, licensed private investigators from King Investigators in South Africa assist companies with the supply and installation of GPS tracking devices, or, should the company wish to buy the trackers themselves, the team will simply fit them professionally for the client.

GPS trackers have certainly come into their own in terms of investigations into infidelity, false insurance claims and other criminal activities, including cleaning up as much as is possible of drug pushers and pimps!

You can be absolutely certain that this team of consummate experts, wastes no time in getting onto your case immediately!

Because of the nature of their profession, the team at King Investigators has to have the ability to be able to fit in anywhere, from Constantia to the Cape Flats, especially because they are often called to go into less than savoury surroundings, and being exposed to the seamier side of life.

This is a team of investigators with a proven track record for delivering results without wasting valuable time, or your money, for that matter. The quality of evidence produced by King Investigators at the conclusion of an investigation is of such a high standard that it will be irrefutable in a court case.

Keep an eye out for these pitfalls when you hire a private investigator in South Africa!

Going to the effort of finding the right private investigator to handle your investigation, and making sure you’ll be dealing with bona fide professionals isn’t something you do every other day, so, we hope this information will make it easier for you to sort the good from the bad before you sign on the dotted line!

Don’t get tripped up by these pitfalls when you hire a private investigator in South Africa:

Don’t let the word ‘cheap’ reel you into making a bad decision!

Whatever you do, don’t base your decision to hire a private investigator by prices that sound too good to be true, because they normally are too good to be true!

If you’re going to add King Investigations to your short list, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that this is a team of professionals that are open and transparent when it comes to offering you competitively priced investigations.

If you speak to a PI that’s cagey and hazy about costs and other details, move along swiftly, because all they’ll leave you with is an empty wallet and evidence that is of no value at all!

Don’t be shy to ask for recommendations from previous clients!

You have every right to ask for recommendations from previous clients. This will help you gauge the level of service excellence, honesty, integrity and reliability, especially when it comes to dealing with the expert professionals from an investigative company in South Africa like King Investigators!

In any event, it’ll also give you to the peace of mind you’ll need to trust that this is a team of seasoned investigators that have remained fully committed to an unwavering standard of excellence for over ten years now.

Do not hire underhanded, unlicensed private investigators!

There is a very good reason that your search for the right PI should start with the PSiRA, just to make sure your investigator and his company is registered with this governing body that oversees the security industry!

Evidence that gets thrown out of court!

On the date of your court case, whether civil or criminal, divorce or child custody cases, the last thing you need at an intensely painful experience is to have all the evidence you’ve paid for being thrown out of court!

This will put you in a bad light and, if anything, it will help the other party to have your evidence ripped to shreds. Remember, your spouse will have his or her own lawyer just waiting to pounce on anything that cannot be backed up by proof!

The absolute no-no’s include the illegal tapping of phones or wearing a wire when interacting with the potential suspect as an example; this is highly illegal evidence, tainted by the methods used to produce it.

Be a winner by making sure you have King Investigators in your corner!

After over ten years in the industry, the team at King Investigators will introduce you to the very best reflection of what an open and professional can do to tackle any investigation you may be contemplating!

Give Jacques a call for a highly confidential chat about why you need the skill and experience this team offers, the call or online chat is free of charge and, by the time you’ve put the phone down, you’ll already have peace of mind that’ll help you to be able to begin early planning around the case you want investigated!

Mobile devices, cameras, lie detector tests & more all play an integral role in successful private investigations!

Professional private investigators have come a long way since the days of Sherlock Holmes, and, with professional investigators such as those at King Investigators in South Africa, an eye for detail, forensic science and an exceptional ability to communicate across many walks of life, has turned this team into the best we have!

As expertly trained investigators, backed up by many years out in the field across many different types of investigations, the team at King Investigators has a permanent finger on the pulse of the latest in state of the art technology, an essential requirement for investigators in 2021 and onwards.

This equips the team to tackle investigations that range from getting the goods on cheaters, corporate espionage and fraud, right across to divorce and custody cases, all of which uses a mixture of skills to ensure that the quality of evidence will be of exceptional value and quality.

Here are a few of the basic skills and tools used by this team across the board:

Mobile phones

Since everyone who’s anyone owns a mobile phone, it’s easy for a PI to surreptitiously capture images and videos with his own phone, without anyone thinking anything of it! In an age where selfies and group photos are a regular part of daily living, a great PI knows exactly how to melt into the background, without drawing attention to himself in any way.

Digital cameras

Digital cameras come in all sizes and shapes today, and a savvy investigator will be armed with exactly what he needs to capture high definition, time-stamped photos and videos of the subject under investigation.

Mobile phones

Although somewhat of a grey area in terms of legality, if a client is able to secure a mobile phone to be mined for calls made and received, text messages and photos. Since nothing is ever really deleted forever off a mobile device, there is a treasure trove of information to be gathered simply by gaining access to someone’s mobile phone!

Lie detector tests/voice stress analysis tests

It’s important to note that only a trained professional investigator is able to administer either a lie detector test or voice stress analysis test. The polygraph machine works at uncovering the truth due to the physiological changes taking place in the person taking the test.

It should be noted here that even if you’re innocent, there’s no way any of us like the idea of being subjected to a polygraph test, which is why a baseline is established by the investigator administering the test, before you get to the nitty gritty!

GPS trackers

These are the ultimate gadgets to use in protecting a fleet of vehicles, or your personal vehicle!

Permission to fit a GPS tracking device to any vehicle requires the permission of the owner of the vehicle, especially if it is privately owned. If the investigation concerns infidelity and the partner suspected of cheating is using a vehicle in the name of their spouse, a GPS tracker can be attached to the vehicle legally.

Fleet managers have save a fortune by installing GPS trackers to keep track of the routes their vehicles travel, and, they also come in extremely handy should a truck be hijacked and stolen. King Investigators will install the GPS tracker on your behalf, whether you have bought it from them or independently.

This team will hand you high quality evidence that’ll protect you, whether in your personal capacity or as a business owner, so, give Jacques Botha and his team a call to get going on cleaning house and business!

Partner with King Investigators in SA to protect your business on all fronts!

Not to belabour a point but, as we watched our world turn upside down virtually overnight with the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, our already crippled economy simply crashed, like never before.

If your business has survived having to close down for months and is beginning to grow again, the best investment you can make in keeping it on an upward trajectory is to take a proactive stance towards ensuring that you aren’t being bled dry by employee theft and the likes.

In this sense, being proactive means hiring your own go-to team of private investigators with the necessary skills to tackle everything that can go wrong in your business, whether from within or without.

Today, many businesses have formed long term relationships by hiring a trusted go-to team of private investigators, which is exactly what the team at King Investigators is all about, bringing experience and skills to the table in order to cover you for any eventuality that could cause your business any loss.

With the high-speed growth of technology and the internet, dishonest people and crime syndicates have the perfect opportunity to manufacture any background information they choose to, and then to send in a potential employee to do the dirty work for them, based on the strength of fake CV’s and references.

White collar crime history has also shown that even the most trusted employees that have been with a company for many years, is now also ripe for exploitation by syndicates.

The other side of this coin is that you, as a business owner, now have equally sophisticated technology to combat theft of products, confidential company information, as well as being able to put measures in place to make it tougher for those in accounting positions to defraud or siphon off your hard-earned profits.

As a full-service investigative company in South Africa, King Investigators carry out investigations that involve everything to do with business intelligence, whether it’s to find the perpetrator of fraud and embezzlement, or to investigate employee theft of products and illegal use of company vehicles.

Should it be necessary to get to the truth, the licensed investigators from King Investigators will go undercover at your company in order to root out any criminal behaviour that is causing you financial loss.

No one will be any the wiser if one of these PI’s are ostensibly hired to work for your company. Owner of King Investigators, Jacques Botha and his team, have been in the industry for well over ten years and, if anyone can melt into the background, these are the professionals you can rely on 100%.

Desperation has given crime syndicates many more people to supplement their income by any means necessary, whether through theft of products, supplier kickbacks, sensitive company secrets and even customer data bases, which in turn then get sold to your competition.

If your company runs a fleet of vehicles and you need to keep an eye on how and where your transport is being used, the team from King Investigators will install sophisticated GPS tracking devices, which will assist you with keeping your finger on the pulse of your business!

Should you decide to get proactive about protecting your business, contact Jacques at King Investigators in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Pretoria, he will share his recommendations with you once he knows what the objective is for you in terms of hiring a private investigator!

Don’t let anyone new into your life or business, without investing in an in-depth background check!

There’s nothing wrong with hiring a PI to carry out an in-depth background check on someone, whether it’s a new romantic interest, a new business partner or investment, in fact, if you are serious about protecting yourself from getting hurt or experiencing loss in your business, then it’s a good decision to make.

Unfortunately our sixth sense doesn’t always give us the right information, especially when everything seems perfectly right on the surface, but that’s when it’s worth taking the step to check into someone’s background thoroughly.

We all want to believe the best in people, we all want to be able to trust easily, however, though dishonesty has been around since the beginning of time, things seem to have escalated alarmingly in the wrong direction with the advent of technology at our fingertips.

If people in high places can lie about qualifications, a potential employee can give you less than the unvarnished truth and, even if you’re considering adding a new board member or partner to your business, you need to take a proactive approach towards protecting yourself and your business.

CV’s can be manufactured and backed up by what seem to be reliable references to contact, or, if you’re hiring someone to take over a position of trust in your business, without reliable, truthful background checks you could well be letting in someone that will do damage to your company.

On the romance front, we all know how easily we can be fooled by someone that appears to be absolutely perfect, only to discover when it’s too late, that you’ve allowed a fraudster, abuser or drug addict, among others, into your life.

The elite team of private investigators at King Investigators in South Africa know exactly where to dig to find the truth, and, with the evidence they present you with, you’ll be able to decide about your next move. It’s empowering yourself to do this, and it’s worth it in the long run!

As licensed private investigators, the team at King Investigators have access to sources that are not available to the general public, in order to provide you with accurate and honest reports, without wasting your time or money!

On a business level, it’s essential that you recognise and then protect your business from crimes such as industrial espionage or sensitive company secrets that could cause devastation if they’re handed to your competition.

As a full-service investigative company with well over ten years in the industry, King Investigators will take on all manner of business investigations, which include misappropriation of corporate assets, embezzlement, fraud, theft of trade secrets and other sensitive company information.

Is there a code of conduct that governs the codes & ethics of PI’s in South Africa?

The answer is a very definite yes! And, if you hire a private investigator that isn’t registered with the PSiRA, which is the governing body for the security industry, you’ll definitely be in the wrong place!

The laws that govern the police services are very strict, in addition to which they are severely undermanned and overwhelmed by too many cases to be able to operate the way they, as professionals, would like to.

This is where things are a little more lenient for private investigators, which, although they are also constrained by a strict code of ethics and legalities, are able to take more time to explore avenues that are open to them without having to get court orders etc.

The police services and private investigators work well together, in that when the police have reached the end of the line in their investigation, they’re able to rely on private investigators to gather evidence legally, which then allow the police to finally charge someone with a crime.

As a large investigative company in South Africa, the team at King Investigators are able to focus entirely on each case as it arrives across their desk, giving them the precious time that is a luxury for an overwhelmed police service.

This team of professionals not only assist with tracing missing people, they also cross the lines between criminal and civil investigations on behalf of private individuals, businesses and attorneys.

A top company such as King Investigators has a good working knowledge of the law, in order to present evidence that is delivered with honesty and integrity, ensuring that your case will be airtight.

A private investigator is not above the law, and he may not:

Carry out an arrest!

Their gathering of evidence is as far as it goes, and, they may not make an arrest as this falls under the jurisdiction of the police services, which will then take the evidence and finally have an opportunity to close a case.

Access private financial records

The only possible, legal way that a private investigator may gain access to financial records, especially in a divorce case where assets are being hidden by one or the other spouse, is to have permission from the individual the account belongs to!

Overstepping this line is courting danger due to the fact that this is an area that falls under the privacy act.

Tap a phone

Unless your private investigator has the express permission from the person under investigation to access their mobile phone, emails or text messages. If you hire an investigator that promises you these things, you will find yourself on the wrong side of the law when the evidence is thrown out of court.

Access financial records

If a private investigator gets permission from a court to access the financial records and bank accounts, the evidence will be considered legal, however, doing so without the permission of either the court or a co-signee on the financial records, will render any evidence found null and void in court.

Conduct undercover surveillance anywhere, without limitations

A private investigator can only carry out undercover surveillance in public places such as shopping malls, parks, night clubs and bars, casinos and restaurants. Anywhere private is viewed as strictly off-limits, which means your PI can’t invade privacy, misrepresent himself or trespass.

For instance, if he is gathering evidence of cheating, by law he cannot enter the property where the subject under investigation may be in order to get the lurid photos and videos that are often portrayed in movies!
