Are you planning on hiring a Private Investigator (P.I.)? Private investigators can be used in a variety of situations to find out information that would otherwise stay hidden. Hiring a private investigator can help put your mind at ease and they can help you in circumstances where you wouldn’t know where to start.

Private investigators can be used to track people using surveillance techniques, gather evidence of your suspected cheating partner, gather evidence of fraud, and can even help in criminal investigations.

If you are in need of such a service by a professional, do consider hiring a PI.

Is it Worth Hiring a Private Investigator?

Tracking a person

There are several reasons why one may need to track another person. You may want to track a loved one to make sure they are safe, or you could be tracking your partner because you suspect them of being unfaithful. Businesses may also want to track their vechicles in case of theft or if they suspect their vechicles are being used outside of the company's fair usage policies.

Whatever the reason for wanting to find a person's location in Singapore a private investigator can help conduct professional surveillance on the person and provide you with a report that is also able to withstand in a court of law. This is especially helpful in cases such as child custody or matrimonial investigations.

Fraud Investigations

Private investigators can help individuals and businesses in cases where fraud may have occurred. A private investigator can review documents, and conduct surveillance to gather any evidence of fraud such as embezzlement, scams, tax fraud, or corruption.

For businesses, a CEO may look to retain a private investigation firm to prevent embezzlement or to conduct background checks on employees to stop the business from hiring someone who has been sued for fraud in the past.

Sweeping for bugs (Anti-Spyware Detection)

Individuals and businesses are often targeted for espionage and private investigators can conduct thorough bug sweeps to keep your information private, and your mind at ease


A competitor or unsavory person may try to get access to your private information to either get a competitive advantage of your company or to use this information to blackmail you at a later date.

You may think that bugs are planted only in movies but it’s more common than you may realize. Quite often bugs are found in hotel rooms and boardrooms up and down the country. By hiring a private investigator to sweep for bugs you have a better chance of keeping your information private.

Missing Person's Case

Finding lost relatives can be a difficult process and without the right level of training, it’s almost impossible. Most people may turn to Facebook to search for distant relatives but after nothing shows up they don’t know where to turn.

Sometimes people don’t want to get in contact with these lost relatives but just want to know that they are safe and doing ok. A private investigator can help you in these circumstances and can help you track down family members or friends that you haven’t seen in years.

Background Checks

As mentioned above in the section mentioning fraud cases, private investigators can help businesses and individuals conduct background checks.

Although most people leave a trail online these days that can be found through a Google search the information that can’t be found this way is often the information a person or company would want to uncover.

For businesses hiring the wrong person who may have criminal convictions, could have been involved in fraud, or could have lied about their qualifications and work history this could have profound effects on the business, both from a reputation point of view and a monetary one.

For individuals who are hiring a person to look after a vulnerable person such as a child or a grandparent, background checks could give you troubling information about that person which could keep your family safe. On the other hand, a background check may not show any flags and can give you peace of mind that your family members are in capable hands.
