Bug sweeping is a Technical Surveillance Countermeasure (TSCM), otherwise known as debugging, it is a survey completed by an experienced private investigator to locate any electronic spying devices that may be present.

There are easy methods of checking for potential bugs in your house. An example would be setting a radio to listen to all low frequencies - if any noise is picked up, it is a good idea to hire a bug sweeper.

We will quote each of our customers individually, as we don't think a flat rate is appropriate for such a process - this is because the rate we would charge to bug sweep a large property may not be an affordable price to bug sweep a smaller location such as a house.

Our private investigators have connections built up all around the country which allows us to gather information nationwide fairly easily. Other methods are often used such as background checks.

Legally we can not force anybody to talk in order to help our surveillance, however, over the years we have gained a number of connections throughout the country which allows us to obtain information on a person's actions and movements without being identified as carrying out any form of surveillance.

We are very discrete with our surveillance, none of our surveillance methods will be able to lead back to you. We have built a network of databases and connections which allow us to obtain information very fast and always discreetly. 

We understand how challenging it can be to get the evidence required to prove when your partner has been cheating on you. Usually, our gut feelings are correct, so trust in a professional agency to get the evidence you need to catch a cheater.

It depends on the individual circumstances for your case; some cases are much simpler to solve than others, so we recommend speaking to an agent today to discuss your own case.

We can work with a wide range of sources to get the evidence and answers you need.  Text messages, emails or cell phone call logs are all useful sources when trying to find out is your partner is cheating. Sometimes it is the simpler details like changes to phone calls which make you suspect something is going on!

Any active GPS tracker can be traced in real-time which will give your exact location at all times. There are many GPS trackers used in this day and age, from cars to mobile phones - there is a good chance that anyone can be located via GPS.

GPS tracking is a massive part of private investigative work. GPS tracking is safe, efficient, cost-effective and helps us to stay discrete. The information gathered from a GPS tracker can be the concrete evidence that we need for you to prove someone is where you say there are.

Generally, all GPs tracking devices will work in any location which has a strong enough signal/internet connection. These variables can affect the location accuracy - when a GPS tracker is working correctly they are usually accurate to within a three-meter radius.

There are a number of different tracking devices that we offer at UK PI. We offer personal trackers, asset trackers, cell-based GPS trackers, and satellite-based tracking devices.

We offer a wide variety of tracking devices which all come with their pros and cons depending on their intended use. A small device is a good idea if you need to track something which can be an obvious tracker, such as a car or backpack. For more discrete tracking devices, we offer incognito devices such as a GPS belt.

You can access the location of a GPS device through many apps which will often give a real-time location update. If you don't want to see the information live, you can check the locations which the GPs tracker has recently been to and from.

Due diligence is an investigation, audit, or review performed to confirm the facts of a matter under consideration. In the private investigator world, due diligence requires an examination of personal records.

Due diligence is generally conducted after the buyer and seller have agreed in principle to a deal, but before a binding contract is signed. Conducting due diligence is the best way for you to assess the value of a business and the risks associated with buying it.

Due diligence is the investigation or exercise of care that a reasonable business or person is expected to take before entering into any agreement or contract with another party, or an act with a certain standard of care. It can be a legal obligation, but the term will more commonly apply to voluntary investigations.

While the misconception with arranged marriages is that they will fail, the majority of arranged marriages are successful. The global divorce rate for arranged marriages ios 6 percent — a significantly low number compared to all marriages in general.

We are able to see previous marriages in our background check as every marriage must be consolidated by someone with a marriage license. The same applies for a divorce, allowing us to check somebody's marital status as well as previous marriages.

Services like our pre-marital background check allow you to learn everything about your future partner's married life. These checks are generally only done for arranged marriages which allows for any hidden information about your partner to be undercovered at the start of the relationship - however, we do offer background checks for standard marriages as well.

there are often people with online dating site accounts which are not who they say they are. You can lookout for signs of this such as; poor grammar, lack of photos, or the inability to be in front of a camera. Our thorough backcheck will assure that the person you are talking to is who they say they are and not trying to scam you for money.

The immediate red flags for finding a scammer on a dating site are things such as not showing their face often or asking you to give them money in the form of plane tickets or gift vouchers.

Only accept friend requests from profiles that are verified to ensure that the person you are speaking to is who they say they are. Never give any form of money before seeing the person face-to-face, as you never know how far people will go to get money for nothing.

If we conduct background screening, we will be able to access public records such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, divorce documents, and some criminal records. If we use a consumer reporting agency, background screening may be more thorough.

A criminal history check may reveal prior criminal activity, which could raise a red flag if not previously known. If you are unsure about your partner's history such as a criminal record, it is advised to do a background check to get the full details.

Background checks uncover a lot, and a less than stellar history might make you anxious. Another concern may be an inaccurate background check, especially if this has been an issue in the past, our background check results are accurate and discrete. 

Joint leases or a letter from your landlord stating that you live at the address, joint utility bills, individual utility bills and letters addressed to you both at the same address are all valid proof of cohabitation. 

You do not count as living together unless you are living together in the same home as a couple. People are often told that if their partner stays over 2 or 3 nights a week that it counts as living together.

Although there is no legal definition of living together, it generally means to live together as a couple without being married - couples who live together are sometimes called common-law partners.

Net worth is the value of all assets, minus the total of all liabilities. Net worth is what is owned minus what is owed, however, you can find net worth of the public and private companies as well to get a full idea of someone's assets.

A better way to access someone's financial record than online is to look at their in-person records. We have access to many databases and records which allow us to gather information on a person.

The correct way to search for secret bank accounts is to do a nationwide search. That way, whether your spouse is hiding money in Florida or Alaska, you'll find out all about it. In most cases, your investigator will even be able to tell you what the exact balance in the account is!

You can sometimes have good luck finding a name and address for a phone number by typing it into a search engine such as Google or Bing. We use other methods such as public records that we've had experience looking and sorting through, we are much more likely to find the address from public records than you are through a google search.

To get real-time results, IMEI & GPS call trackers can be used to track the location of a phone call. Tracking mobile phones is always possible, even when the phone is not connected to the internet - you can know the GPS coordinates of a phone number within seconds.

An address lookup is a method of finding out where somebody lives by using other resources and factors. There are a few methods that can be used to find a person's address - a lookup can show the registered address. Tracking frequent GPS locations can also give you enough information to discover a home address.

You can make a court claim for your money if you are unable to claim your money back. One we have identified the person owing you money - you can make a claim online if the money owed is less than £100,000 and owed by no more than 2 people or 2 organisations.

  • You lied on your resume. ...
  • Your credit history is poor. ...
  • Your driving record revealed issues. ...
  • A previous employer gave you a bad review

Inspections of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) The Council has a proactive inspection programme of HMOs. If conditions in the properties inspected are not up to standard, the landlord or owner is required to improve them.

If your property is let to five or more tenants from more than one household, some or all of the tenants share toilet, bathroom or kitchen facilities and at least one tenant pays rent, then your property will be considered as a large HMO and will need a licence.

A property is likely to be an HMO if its tenants are three or more people living in more than one household, and the tenants share a toilet, bathroom, or kitchen facilities. For the purposes of HMOs, a household is considered to be a single person, or members of the same family living in the same property.

A critical step in an insurance claim is the investigation undertaken to gather information about the claim. Insurers generally have obligations and rights to conduct a prompt.

An insurance adjuster works for the insurance company. After the adjuster submits a report on your claim, your insurance company may issue a settlement, which is the money they agree to give you to fix or replace your damaged property, for example, fix a hole in your roof, repair your car, or replace your belongings.

Never offer to give a personal statement, avoid speaking to the adjuster unless necessary, and consider having a friend or, better yet, your lawyer or public adjuster assist when speaking with the adjuster.

If you want to know if a Private Investigator can investigate you without your knowledge, then yes we are more often than not undetected. We are trying to find out something that you may want to hide/get rid of and they want to get evidence of what you are doing before you can do it.

The employer should try to contact the absent employee as soon as possible, including using any emergency contact they have. If contact cannot be made, the employer should discuss the absence with the employee when they come back to work.

An excused absence from work is typically one that an employee schedules in advance with permission from his or her employer. For example, jury duty, surgery, appointments, funerals, military service, or vacation are considered excused absences because they cannot be scheduled during work hours.

The terminology used for a Person who serves Court Orders and Legal Documents is called a "Process Server". If you're in need to serve a Court Order or Legal Document in the UK then you'll likely need to instruct a Process Server to do this.

You'll be pleased to hear that in 2020 the average cost of a fixed fee process server in the UK is currently between £100 and £200.

Process servers are not allowed to break-in and/or enter private property without permission in order to serve papers to a person. Again, they are required to follow all state and federal laws, even if they're serving papers as part of a law enforcement job.

There are data recovery apps which can be used to easily recover old images/text messages. They can be more easily restored on android devices as they allow you more access to the system and therefore gives a better chance to scan the lost messages.

All of the providers retained records of the date and time of the text message and the parties to the message for time periods ranging from sixty days to seven years. However, the majority of cellular service providers do not save the content of text messages at all.

But even if your deleted text messages are off your carrier's server, they may not be gone forever. ... Eventually, of course, the deleted messages will disappear as memory is filled with new messages, photos, or videos.

Whilst a basic internet search can sometimes provide limited information about a person, our searches go far deeper and use the latest tools and systems to locate the full current address of a person. It is far more information than you may find on the electoral roll, for example!

After the initial consultation, which can take place via email, face to face or telephone, we will ask you to complete a short form.

The problem with many apparently “free” background checks is that they rely on simply gathering information from the public records – they are essentially just searching the internet for that person and any information which appears.  You will not generate any meaningful information from these companies which you cannot get yourself.

Most employers will run some form of background check on their new staff – this could be pre interview or afterwards before they offer a job.  Depending on the type of employment, they may be more rigorous than others, so it important that you declare any trace of criminal convictions, court cases or bankruptcies on your application!

Unfortunately using many of the supposedly 'free' find a person tools available online will lead to very little results and a huge amount of time wasted. Many of the free tools do in-fact hide information behind a pay wall, purposefully providing small snippets of a persons' information but then asking for a fee to unlock the information fully. Furthermore, the quality of this information can be poor and instead of a person checking this data, like we do here at UK Private Investigators, on the free tools online you're simply searching, most of the time, an out of date database.  

The price of one of our trace a person services starts from as little as £25.00 for bulk requests. Individual requests will be priced on a bespoke basis and our prices start from as little as £120.00. Please ensure you are aware of the fee prior to instructing as trace instructions cannot be cancelled.

Due diligence is the process of conducting due diligence on a prospective investment. This entails reviewing information about the company and its operations to ensure that the investment is sound.

Due diligence is important to ensure that an investment is worthwhile and will be profitable.

The four steps of due diligence are researching the company, reviewing the company's financial statements and management reports, contacting the company to ask questions, and meeting with the company's representatives.

Potential risks and benefits of conducting corporate investigations include the possibility of revealing confidential information, uncovering wrongdoing, and enhancing company reputation. Information sources for these facts and figures would likely include company literature, online resources, and interviews with experts.

Businesses may be involved in investigations that fall into one or more of the following categories: internal investigations, financial investigations, product investigations, and compliance investigations. Internal investigations typically pertain to misconduct by employees within the company, while financial investigations typically focus on possible financial misconduct. Product investigations typically involve suspected violations of intellectual property rights, while compliance investigations are designed to ensure that the business is in compliance with specific legal requirements.

Corporate investigations typically unfold through the following steps: 1) The company receives a report of wrongdoing from an employee or shareholder 2) The company conducts its own internal investigation to determine if there is wrongdoing 3) If wrongdoing is found, the company hires an investigator to look into the matter further 4) If wrongdoing is determined, legal action may be taken

The National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) urges businesses to cooperate with investigations and to avoid making any false statements. The NFIB also suggests that businesses keep complete records of all contacts with investigators, including the date, time, nature of the inquiry, and what was discussed.

When you discover your spouse is cheating, the most important thing to do is to be proactive. This means tracking their phone activities, social media posts, email and text messages, etc. This way, you can be sure that you have a clear picture of what happened. The next step is to try to talk with your spouse about the cheating. This can be difficult, but it's important that both of you are on the same page about what happened. Do not get into a fight or accusatory mode; this will only make the situation worse. Instead, try to remain calm and rational during the conversation.

Depending on the situation, you may want to do one of the following: 1. Confront your spouse about the cheating: If confrontation results in a fight and both of you end up angry, then moving on may be the best option for both of you. The fact is, you both deserve to be happy and if this means that you have to go your separate ways, then so be it. 2. Try rebuilding your relationship from scratch: This is a tough decision, but often times the best way to heal the wounds of a cheating relationship is to start from scratch. This may mean setting boundaries, communicating more honestly, and committing yourself to rebuilding trust. It can be a long and arduous process, but it may be worth it in the end. 3. Just move on: If confrontation doesn't happen or goes poorly, then sometimes just moving on is the best thing to do. You may grieve and feel heartbroken over the cheating, but ultimately it's up to you whether or not you want to continue trying to rebuild your relationship.

There's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question as cheating can vary from relationship to relationship. However, if you're feeling like there's something off about your relationship and you don't know what it is, then professional help may be a good investment.

Some signs that your spouse may be cheating may include changes in behavior, anger and jealousy out of the blue, being secretive, and not sharing important information with you. If you notice any of these behaviors in your relationship, it may be worth speaking to a professional to get started on the path to resolving the situation.

If you are concerned that your spouse might be cheating on you, there are some key signs to look out for. - If your partner is spending more time with someone else, or if they are being secretive about their whereabouts, it may be a sign that they are cheating. - Changes in your partner's behaviour or attitude could also be a sign of cheating. For example, if they start becoming distant or argumentative suddenly, this could be a sign that something is wrong. If you catch them in the act, the best thing to do is talk to a professional. They can help you navigate the situation and find the best way to deal with it.

There are three main types of investment fraud: market manipulation, insider trading, and Ponzi schemes. Market manipulation happens when an individual or organization tries to manipulate the price of a security by artificial means like buying and selling large volumes. Insider trading refers to traders who make illegal profits by sharing information that they know ahead of time about a company's future earnings. And Ponzi schemes happen when someone takes in money from new investors with promises of high returns but then does not actually invest the money into any legitimate business venture.

Some red flags that may indicate that someone is committing investment fraud are if the person offering the investment has little experience or knowledge about financial markets and investments. This may be because they're not actually invested in the project, or they're just trying to take advantage of you. Be wary if anyone is pressuring you to commit right away - this could also be an indicator of fraud. Also, be careful about promises made by scammers. Some scammers will claim that their investment will double, triple or even quintuple in value within a short period of time. However, this is almost always impossible to happen and can lead to serious financial losses.

When it comes to making an investment decision, it's important to be very cautious. Don't overthink things or blindly trust anyone. Do your own research and read reviews of different financial products before investing. Make sure to keep all relevant documents, emails, and contracts related to the investment for later use if needed. And lastly, always contact the company you are thinking of investing in for more information - do not rely on testimonials alone.

Technology can be a great tool in helping to identify potential scam artists or fraudulent investments. By using online tools such as social media, review websites and databases, or other software programs, you can quickly and easily identify red flags that may indicate potential fraud.
