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.

Top 5 Reasons To Hire A Private Investigator In Singapore

Private investigators can be used to trace people, catch a cheating partner, gather evidence of fraud, and can even help in criminal investigations.

In this article, we will take a look at 5 reasons you may turn to a private investigator. If you want to see how much a private investigator costs read this article.

Tracking a person

Tracking a person

You may want to track a person to make sure they are safe, or you could be tracking a partner to make sure they are being faithful. Businesses may also want to track their vehicles in case of theft or if they suspect their vehicles are being used outside of the company's fair usage policies.

Whatever the reason for wanting to track a person a private detective can help set it up for you without the other person knowing. These trackers can be set up for long-term usage and updates can be provided in real-time through Apple and Google Maps.

GPS tracking is very useful in cases where you may suspect a cheating partner as it’s very easy to prove the person was not where they say they were at a given time. The trackers are very powerful and can usually pinpoint a person's location within a few feet.

Fraud 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 see if any type of fraud is occurring such as auto insurance, healthcare fraud, and homeowners fraud.

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

Sweeping for bugs

Individuals and businesses are often targeted for espionage and private investigators can conduct thorough bug sweeps to keep your information private.

A competitor or unsavory person may try to get access to your private information to either get a competitive advantage over 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 Investigation

Missing Person's Investigation

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.

Process Serving

Process Serving

If you have a law firm and need documents delivered to a defendant usually a private detective is used to serve these documents, this is known as a process server.

The main job of a process server is to let someone know they are in the process of a legal case. Tracking these people down can sometimes be difficult and can take up time, however, with the right tools a private investigator can track and serve documents in a prompt and professional manner.

Process serving can differ from company to company but it’s worth noting that you should hire a private investigation firm that has the legal knowledge and understands the procedure chain.

Background Checks

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 a piece of mind that your family members are in capable hands.
