In this step-by-step training video, Private Investigator Larry Kaye shows you how to do exactly what some so-called OSINT experts claim cannot be done – access public records about minors. This video follows a police use of force case involving three young guys in a stolen automobile.
This week’s private investigator training video is OSINT training on how to look-up license plate location history information without using a restricted access or law enforcement database, but simply open sources and methods taught by semi-retired P.I. Larry Kaye.
Let me explain how waiving your no-hit fee as a Private Investigator (for instance, when conducting a “Faux License Plate Trace”) can help your business relationships and result in more money for you in the long run.
Even if you “give up” your no-hit fee, they’re still helpful to keep away cheapskate clients!
Check out this week’s private investigator training video for the details.
Always keep your work legal and ethical.
I never deceive my clients into thinking I am running the license plate through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
I clearly tell them, “I can’t run the plate through the BMV for you, but I can see if other sources and methods find anyone associated with this plate. If that’s helpful to you, my fee is…”
This week I pull real life examples of catfishing straight from my case files as a private investigator and share with you six catfishing phrases to instantly spot a scammer!
What is catfishing?
Catfishing is someone online posing as a person they are not and hoping to lure a victim into a “relationship” then using that connection to scam the victim out of money. Both Men and Women can be catfishers.
Here are the 6 phrases catfishers uses:
1. “I would leave my abusive husband in a second, but I can’t afford the divorce.”
2. “Thank you for sending the money to leave him, but he found it and took it from me.”
3. “I want to come visit you, but I can’t afford it.”
4. “I would come visit you, but all my money is tied up in a business investment.”
5. “I have a chance to make a ton of money, but I need $10,000 to re-carpet the hotel I’m flipping.”
6. “Thank you for the money, but the contractor ran off with it and now the client is threatening to put me in jail if I don’t finish the job!”
If you hear any one of these phrases from someone online, they are trying to scam you. It’s a rip-off.
