Over the years, we have seen many “cheap people tracing” companies appear in the industry. These are often digital marketing companies or other types of start-up businesses who are trying to cash in on the private investigator industry. However, be warned, a ‘people tracing” company may well simply be accessing information that is publically available and charging you for the privilege. Some even claim to be “Private Investigators” but have simply copied a list of services from reputable detective’ websites and merely conduct online searches, charging you once again for something you could have done yourself. They may offer discounts or special offers to lure you in. Generally, a discounted fee means a reduced service – we have all heard the phrase, “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.”
UK Private Investigators are specialists, who have, over many years, worked on gaining the knowledge and skills required to service our clients’ needs. When it comes to finding people, a reputable detective agency can and will go above and beyond the needs of the client and will have a vast range of discreet and mostly non-public sources available to them, ensuring, not only that the clients’ needs are met but that they are exceeded in every way. We have not and never will offer our services at a discounted rate as we believe our fees are already extremely affordable and our people tracing service offers value for money.
Sadly, with the appearance on online tracing companies, it’s a case of “buyer beware,” and the old adage of “If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys” is all too often sadly true.
A reputable and effective Private Investigator will charge a fair fee for a high quality service.
If you need an agency to find someone quickly and accurately, you may be better to avoid one of the many so-called tracing companies claiming to be Private Investigators and instead, hire an established Private Investigation company, with a provable history in the industry.
