Don’t Be A Victim: Avoid These Scams

As a Private Investigator, I see situations involving scams all the time. Hearing others' stories can help the next person learn how to avoid these popular scams. Over the past few months, I have received several calls from potential clients stating they have fallen for a scam. I often hear from women that have signed up on different dating sites to find love and/or companionship. Some of the victims are scammed on "Sugar Daddy" dating websites, which are created to help these women find a companion, while also making money.

The Difference Between a Detective and an Investigator

If you've worked with a private investigator before, you're probably pretty knowledgeable on the role and limits of a PI. For those who have never worked with a private investigator, it's important to know the difference between a detective and an investigator. Often, private investigators have previous experience in law enforcement, but that doesn't mean they can do all of the same things. PI's largely focus on personal, legal, financial, and other related matters. While they are sometimes employed by law enforcement, that doesn't mean that they are law enforcement.

Criminal Defense Attorney Amy Hayes

​We have teamed up with Amy Hayes a criminal defense attorney in Douglasville, GA. She is easy to work with and we make a great team. We have recently worked a sexual assault case. I like the way we can shoot ideas off one another on the case and discuss what needs to be done next. She is a go getter.
