Private Investigator reveals neat trick to catch a liar.

I see a lot of “experts” teaching this one thing and it’s dead wrong.

They teach that there are certin phrases or certin body language that tells when a person is lieing.

The problem is, some poeple say and do these things even when they’re telling the truth. Maybe the subject frequently touches his face even when telling the truth or says something like, “To tell you the truth…” and he’s not lieing.

So here’s the big tip… Calibrate your subject.

Ask questions you know the answer to and note how the subject speaks and acts when telling the truth. Then compare that to the answers he gives when you ask him questions you’re trying to determine the truth of.

Just sayin’.

This Process Server pretext trick will help you to lie even when you’re super nervous!

We, as the good guys, sometimes need to present ourselves are someone we are not when serving court papers. When we do this it’s called pretexting.

What is pretexting? Simply this… posing as someone we are not to get information or serve process papers.

Of course, it’s easy to be nervous when we do this. First and foremost, we (the “good guys”) tend to be honest so misrepresenting ourselves may not be very natural or uncomfortable to us.

Secondly, we don’t want to mess up! The downside to failing during a pretext is not small. At the very least we have tipped the subject and they will be WAY more prepared to defeat our (or other investigators!) future efforts.

In other words, getting caught using a pretext can cost you the whole case! No wonder it’s easy to be nervous when pulling a pretext.

So how can you still pretext when your nervous? Simple… roll your nervousness into the pretext. This week’s video gives an excellent example and shows you how.

Because pretexting is an important part of process serving (and a lot Private Detective work in general), I have a whole section dedicated to pretexting on the Private Investigator course The Investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Process Serving.

It pays to be courteous when serving process.

This week’s video gives a real life case study taken directly from the process server video training course The Investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Process Serving.

This is a tiny clip from the complete course which is over two hours long and is presented on two DVDs.

When you get this course you own it. There is nothing else to pay. No continuning “tuition fees’” like some places. You buy it once and own it forever!

Learn at your own pace, in the privacy of your own home and review it whenever you want!

Background Check and Skip Trace Skills overlap for Private Investigators.

When you’re skip tracing, you are developing a lot of information while trying to find the person who skipped. You’re looking at a variety of sources of information. When you do background checks you have the same type of thing going on although your objective is different.

With background checks, you may have a client who wants to know things about criminal history. Or they might want to verify a previous address. Those types of things are very specific background information, but with skip tracing you’re trying to actually find the person.

With a skip trace you may discover information about their criminal background. You may discover a little bit about their address history but that’s not the primary objective. Most of the time, the primary objective is to find an address where the person is staying.

You need to be able to find the same information for skip tracing and background checks. The difference is, with a skip trace, once you find the skip, you stop digging into his background.

Examples of information that can help you with both a background check and a skip trace are an addresses history and criminal records.

If you’re looking for a person, I can tell you that some of the things you’ll find in a criminal history are going to be pure gold for you. I’m not just talking about database searches. As wonderful as those are and as much as they can stream-line the process for you, they are not the end!

Just to know that a person got busted two years ago for picking a fight, aggravated assault, indecent exposure or whatever it might be, may not help you.

Even if the database gives you the address that the subject listed at the time of arrest, that may not be enough.

When you pull the actual criminal complaint, pull the arrest record and look at the mug shot, this type of information is very valuable and will give all sorts of clues.

When you’re looking for this person, who made bail for them two years ago?

If you got a buddy who’s good enough to make a bail for you at two o’clock in the morning because you smacked somebody in the head, that person probably knows where you are right now. As an investigator, I’m really interested in talking to anybody who might know where you are.

As you can see, background check and skip tracing skills really overlap.
