Stop Investment Fraud in its Tracks

We all have heard the stories of people losing their home or land due to investment fraud. This occurs worldwide and ICS has years of experience helping professionals with a private investigator in real estate fraud investigations and all other types of fraud.

From cheating honest citizens out of the title to their own land to fake mortgages being taken out on their money, the amount of dishonest and criminal activity that occurs continues to grow each year. Real Estate Professionals will be working with a client who thinks they are set to purchase a new property when sadly they find out they have become a victim of real estate investment fraud.

One of the most common cases of real estate investment fraud is between bitter spouses. You will hear the stories of a horrid divorce and before the couple actually divorces, one of the spouses found a way to take out a mortgage on the property behind the other’s back. These cases keep popping up and ICS is here and available to help these victims.

What can a private investigator for ICS do to help their client? From undercover investigations to continuous background record checks, if you are suspicious of illegal activity or have a client that has already fallen victim, ICS is the company to contact. With their worldwide status and top rated service, the perpetrator can be stopped in their tracks before the situation can worsen.

ICS real estate private investigators are here for you

For the busy Real Estate Professional needing a private investigator, ICS understands your needs and desires in your line of work. From that one employee that just doesn’t sit right with you to residents that have visitors all hours of the night, ICS’s private investigators have over 40 years of experience handling these types of situations and many more.

If you are an owner of numerous properties and do not have the time to conduct a background check, a private investigator can take the hassle out of this for you with their comprehensive and confidential services when pre-screening new tenants. ICS even can check the background of a property before deciding to purchase so you have all the facts and records and can also find out if the other party is lying to you when ICS can provide you proof. Don’t forget, with the profitability of real estate fraud this can be an open door for criminal activity. The Real Estate game is still a business and a large amount of life savings is invested in hopes of retiring off rental properties.

Why play games with unruly tenants or dishonest employees? By the time you find out the “nice tenant” is not so nice, it may be too late. ICS has years of proven experience helping Realtors so why skip one of the most important steps when conducting business.

Many Thousands of People Go Missing Each Year. You Say it Can?t Happen to You? Think Again!

What would happen if you went missing?  Would you need a kidnapping investigation done by a private investigator?  Hopefully situation will never happen to you.

A young woman is on the way to a baby shower for a childhood friend but realizes she is very low on gas and won?t make it. Reluctantly, she pulls into a gas station determined to get in, get out and back on the road ASAP. She uses cash to pay the cashier and hurries back to her car, gets in and starts the engine. Then a knock on her window. A man, dressed in a nice suit and smiling is holding up a $5.00 bill indicating it was hers. She wonders where did he come from then he knocks again, insisting she roll down the window.

What would you do? This was a very clever and insidious ruse that was used on someone who happened to realize in time that the money could not possibly be hers. She indicated "No" to the man who instead of smiling and ?pocketing the money became belligerent and violent, screaming and banging her window! She quickly started the car and drove off glad she had the presence of mine to lock her doors automatically when first re-entering her car. (A lot of cars auto lock only after the car has been put in "Drive" and hit certain speeds leaving the driver and the occupants vulnerable to car jacking or worse! Always lock all your doors automatically when you first get in and make it a habit) Only later did she realize it was a ruse all ?staged? to get her to let down her ?guard? and roll down her window for a possible kidnapping or ransom situation. The place was all but deserted except for her and him and a cashier who was behind a steel cage and out of sight. If the money was not hers why did the man behave that way? And she could swear she never saw where he came from. What might have happened if she had complied? Only Gods knows but law enforcement agencies want to warn everyone about the possibility of a kidnapping and child molesters.  Imagine this happening to a child - much more of a sure lure then candy! Serial killers are thinking up better and more insidious ways to get you (or a child) to ?drop? your defenses in the name of a good deed. The many thousands of missing may have been victim to such ?ruses? designed to work very effectively no matter how wary or alert the person might be. It will only turn into a ransom situation or worse.

Suspicious of a Cheating Spouse; Use a Private Investigator

In today’s society, many people marry with the thought in mind of forever and for always. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and marriages break up due to dishonesty of one or both partners because of a cheating mate.

Adultery has and continues to be a growing epidemic among married couples. If you suspect your spouse is cheating on you, did you know there are private investigators that will conduct surveillance for you? If you have your suspicions, all you need to do is meet with a private investigator from ICS for a free consultation to determine if this would be the correct approach for an unfaithful spouse.

Have you ever thought of using a private investigator to spy on a cheating spouse? Some people even use a cheating decoy. Did you even know that PI’s do offer this service? One cheating wife investigation was found in an airport where the woman greeted her lover, walked hand in hand in public while the private investigator positioned himself around baggage claim and was able to take video of the public displays of affection.

It is quite shocking how people will act when they think no one is watching. Although this was a rude awakening for the client, it also allowed the husband to have proof of his cheating spouse thanks to the private investigation services of ICS.

Realtors and Small Business Go Hand in Hand

Whether you are a Realtor who is established and known in the Real Estate world or just starting your small business, private investigators can help with any sized business. Unfortunately there are always dishonest people that lurk around and as a business owner; you can never be too safe.

Using a private investigator for your own protection is one of the smartest things to do as a business owner. Let’s say you are a woman Broker who just opened her own office and keep seeing the same man “around” all different hours of the day. Since this is a new business for you, you will be spending long hours at your office and many times alone. You may be bringing in Real Estate clients or running out to meet a client and then coming back to an empty office along.

Who do you think you should call to survey the situation and protect you?

Maybe as a real estate professional you never thought of using a private investigation company to protect yourself if a situation like this arises. From the car you drive to your dress, you show a lot about yourself from simple things that an unstable person can look at and think crazy ideas.

Being aware of your surroundings and protect yourself by having a private investigator free consultation. It's the first process of hiring a private investigator which can ease your mind.
