14 Things A Private Investigator Can Do

Author : Michael Date : 01/07/2019 Category : Private Investigation Comment : 0

1.       Follow someone

Follow you through car

A private investigator can set up surveillance measures to watch a suspects every public move. This can be used to spy on a cheating spouse or partner, spy on a suspicious business, get evidence of a fraud or a crime, all of this is possible and much more. If you need to find proof of someone’s wrong doing to support your claims, a private investigator can provide actual hard evidence through surveillance and other tactics. A private investigator can perform a stakeout and get video and audio recordings to support your evidence.


2.       Locate a person

A private investigator excels at locating someone for whatever reason. Some common reasons may be finding someone who is missing, a long lost sibling, finding birth parents, lost love, and many other reasons but whatever the reason private investigators have many methods to track someone down.

3.       Background Check

Private Investigators perform background checks for various reasons such as for employment, dating, military, criminal checks, and more. These checks can go as in-depth that you need the background check to go.

4.       Get information on a business

5.       Process Serving

Court House

Yes some PI’s are capable of serving a suspect any personal legal document, delivery of summons, subpoenas, and other legal documents. Do you have someone you need to sue but can’t seem to get to them? A private investigator can track down and serve the suspect in a stealthy fashion.


6.       GPS track a car

This is tricky and can only be achieved legally through certain requirements. First and foremost the vehicle must be registered in your name or we must have consent to from the person being tracked. So, for example, a girlfriend wants to track a car she gifted her ex-boyfriend. A GPS tracker can be placed only if the title of the car is in her name or consent to track is given by her.

10.   Find Sensitive info

Certain sensitive information and records can be obtained by a private investigator. This may include assets, fillings, financial records, arrest records, birth records, legal records, and much more.


11.   Help avoid Online Dating fails
