Whether you are an individual, a small business, or a big company, you are exposed to today?s dangers such as troublesome tenants, infidelity, corporate espionage, identity theft, investment scams, romance scams, false companies, fake resumes, and other threats. Although you can fish out some of the information online, having a professional do the work for you can mean access to information you may not have access to as well as making sure the information is accurate. This is where hiring a private investigator comes in, and can help you with the following:

Company Background Check

All companies come with a past, and some events of the past may not make one company proud. If the company has a history of fraud or not honoring work or service contracts, then the private investigators at Haywood Hunt can hunt for that information for you.

Employee Background Check

It is not uncommon for some people to lie on their CV or simply print out certificates that mean nothing. If you are a company or corporation that cares for your reputation, you know that these people generally mean bad news. Private investigators can help validate information such as if applicants are indeed who they claim to be or if they have the qualifications they claim to have.

Tenant Screening

If you are a homeowner or a real estate manager who need to check out potential tenants and evaluate their suitability for your property, then you may need to hire a private investigator to find out a person?s legal status, job, and whether he/she has an eviction record.

Fraudulent Insurance Claims

Thousands if not tens of thousands of fake insurance claims are filed daily in Canada to defraud insurance companies and to claim some easy cash. Private investigators can uncover the truth such as exposing someone who claims to have a mobility issue playing basketball, or even proving that someone who is claimed to be dead to be very much alive.

Validation of Records

If you need to assess the validity of any legal document or file, you?ll probably end up encountering roadblock after roadblock, especially if you want to assess the validity of a foreign document. Private investigators can work with international partners to verify documents around the globe.

Dating Background Checks

You can never be sure if the person you are talking to over the internet is really who she or he claims to be. Private investigators can conduct a dating background check to see if someone?s education level, career, name, or marital status is exactly as that someone says. Cheating can also be uncovered too.

Extramarital Affairs Investigations

Private investigators can discreetly follow your spouse or get some information on their daily whereabouts and who they are spending time with. At Haywood Hunt, we offer surveillance services for this very purpose and provide you with photo and/or video evidence.

Divorce and Family Law Investigations

If your partner or spouse is hiding assets from you or lying about critical information, a private investigator can gain access to bank accounts or take surveillance footages for evidence and your peace of mind.

Kids Custody Issue

Private investigators can serve as witnesses in courts or for custody hearings, more so if they were able to uncover some truths that can harm your child. Remember that tough cases can suddenly become an easy one if the right information is presented as evidence.

Secure Overseas Recruitment

Private investigators can go beyond just normal background checks especially when you?re trying to hire from abroad. This can be very crucial if your institution deals with projects and businesses where threat detection is of the utmost importance.

Extremely skilled private investigators will know what information to look for and where to look for it as long as you make sure that you hire professionals with extensive experience and impeccable reputation. At Haywood Hunt, we provide full private investigation services that you can trust. Contact us today!
