Background Investigations

"The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is."
- Winston Churchill

Background Investigations

Whether you are hiring new employees or entering into a business transaction, you can be sure our background investigations will assist you in making the right decisions. The sad fact is that nowadays, you just can't be too careful who you plan on dealing with in your business or personal life. In the not too distant past, background investigations were something of a luxury, now they are quickly becoming a necessity. Every minute of every day, money is stolen and companies and individuals are defrauded of their fortunes and reputations.

We can accomplish a profile through all available resources within the budget established by our clients.

Case Studies

The client was considering going into business with an individual from another state. They would essentially be merging their businesses. He was concerned about his potential new partner though and wanted us to check him out. What we found made him reconsider the merger: two bankruptcies in the last 10 years, his house forclosed in the last year, half a dozen lawsuits & judgments, and the kicker: the person was on probation for theft.
