How Unlicensed Private Investigators Get Caught.

Someone may try to work cases and charge clients by working as an unlicensed private investigator, but I’m going to reveal to you the top three most likely ways they’re going to get caught and busted by the state!

1. Caught by the state.

The first way is the state agency in charge of licensing will suspect someone is operating without a license and they’ll start an investigation themselves and pursue that person as an unlicensed investigator.

This may surprise you, but in my humble opinion, that’s the least likely way an unlicensed private investigator’s going to get caught!

My experience from working for years as a Licensed Private Investigator (and my very jaded opinion), is that the state agency in charge of issuing licenses is not out look for unlicensed investigators in order to protect the public.

Where I’ve seen my state licensing agency doing their most work is looking at existing agencies and seeing if they’re doing something wrong, specifically with paperwork.

I can tell you horror stories about agencies that have been fined. And the fines and penalties grow exponentially.

Case Study:

I know one guy who ran an agency. He did P.I. work and offered security services as well.

If I remember correctly, it was the date of hire for all of his private security personnel that was the problem. He had three hundred employees and the the date of hire on the forms was recorded as “day, month and year” and it was supposed to be in a “year, month and day” format. Innocent mistake.

Well, the state licensing agency looked at that and said, “My goodness, you have three hundred violations. That’s a hundred violations at ten dollars per violation plus it accrues every three days you’re not in compliance.”

He had three hundred security professionals that he immediately got finned for. The state went back and said, “You recorded this wrong for a year and a half. That’s 300 violations every 3 days!

It was hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and penalties levied against him for having the date in the wrong order!

Not the wrong date, but the date in the wrong order!

That seems to me very disingenuous. There was no interest in the public’s well-being. This was a good guy and a good agency. He trained his people. It was purely a money grab by the state.

Fortunately, he was able to settle this for a much smaller fine and penalty. But still, that was not the state looking out for the citizens. That was not the state looking for unlicensed investigators or unlicensed security providers.

2. Clients report the unlicensed investigator.

The second way unlicensed investigators are discovered is because their clients are unhappy with the results they get and start to squawk and look for a way out of paying.

Again, I’ve been in this business for years and I don’t really see that happening too much but I think it’s much more likely that this is going to happen than the state discovering you and busting you.

Think about it…

If you’re operating without a license, now you’ve got a problem. Every potential client you’ve worked for unlicensed can easily say, “Gee-golly. I wonder if the state would be interested in this. Maybe you could cut me a discount on the price”. Then you either work for free or you’re getting busted!

3. Licensed Private Investigators turn you in!

The third and absolutely most likely way you’re going to get called out as an unlicensed private investigator is that the other detectives in your area are going to notice you and notify the state.

Look, no legitimate person out there is going to claim that this is an easy way to make money. It may be kind of fun. It may be what your aptitude is in. You may be, as I’ve talked about before, a natural born investigator. You’ve got it in your blood. You’ve got to do it! I totally relate!

That was me, one hundred percent. But don’t let anybody fool you saying this is an easy way to make money.

You’ve got to build up your clients. Yes, you can get to a point where you’re comfortable, but this is not something where in thirty days or six months you’re going to be making a good living!

What that means is, if other investigators see that you’re operating or soliciting clients, they will see you as taking money out of their pockets! And, believe me, they’re paying attention!

Licensed investigators are on the web. They’re looking. They’ve got alerts and updates coming to them automatically for certain key words.

In the old days, every year, you plopped open the new phone book, ran your finger down the column and said, “Who’s this new guy?”

Here, we are well into the 21st century, and you don’t have to wait a year for the phone book to come out to look for the new guy. The unlicensed investigator pops up automatically.

The Catch-22

Think about the catch-22 for the person who’s trying to work unlicensed. He needs to get the word out that he’s there and available for the work but he’s got to stay under the radar of all the other investigators. Other P.I.’s will notice him and they will report him to the state licensing agency.


What does this mean for you? Number one, don’t work without a license. It’s just not worth it.

If you’re busted for offering investigative services without a license, that may disqualify you from ever getting your license in your state!

If you’re really dying for the experience, then put in the applications and work for licensed detective agencies. Or go work in retail in loss prevention working your way into an investigative position. Also, every major bank and all major companies have an investigative division. They may not call it that, but check it out.

Try to get into a job like those to build your experience and then enter this industry legitimately.

Look, it really comes down to what I share with you every single week. Do the right thing, even if it’s the hard thing.

3 Marketing Advantages for Your Private Investigator Business.

You can make more money as a private investigator when you have a marketing plan and this week I’m sharing with you three almost unfair advantages you can have when marketing your private investigator business or process serving business.

The Fundamental Principle

Offer something your clients want and are willing to pay for.

Even before I give you the list of 3 advantages, you have to offer your clients something they want and are willing to pay for.

You may be tempted to offer something unique, fun or clever for getting clients, only to find out that it’s not anything they’re even vaguely interested!

It’s pointless to differentiate yourself if the client doesn’t have any particular interest in that difference.

I’m not talking about “branding” here. Sure, you may have a unique company look, the way your website is built or your social media. And there’s nothing wrong with having a brand “look”, but here I’m saying people have to know, like and trust you. You can differentiate yourself that way.

1. Offer something your competition hasn’t thought to offer.

The first unfair advantage is offering your potential clients something your competition hasn’t yet thought to offer them.

A good example here is to say things like…

“With my services you get a free written report.”
“There’s no extra charge for video.”
“You can get a follow up summary within twenty-four hours via phone.”
“We’ll communicate with you via text message.”

These are things any private investigator can do, but maybe hasn’t thought to offer.

These are things your competition may do (a lot of detective agencies do), but they aren’t telling their potential clients about it!

Heck, In some places (including my state) you’re required to give a written report if the client wants it so why not offer it in your sales material? If you’re competition’s not pointing that out, this can give you an unfair advantage when a potential client is shopping around.

The other agency lists all the things they do, (EG. surveillance, background checks, skip tracing), but it’s just a list of services.

When they come to you, they find, yes, you offer the exact same services, but you include a free written report. There’s no extra costs for the video. You can give them text message updates. Those are the types of things your competition hasn’t thought to offer.

Of course, the weak part of this competitive advantage is that your competition can quickly figure this out and offer it as well. It’s not something that’s going to keep you ahead in the long term, but it is an unfair advantage you can have right now.

2. Offer something your competition is unwilling to offer.

The second unfair advantage you’re going to have over your competition is to offer something they’re not willing to offer.

One example of this is you might offer to trace license plates when your competition is not willing to do that.

As a professional, you understand there’s all sorts of restrictions on this. You can’t just do this for anyone at anytime for any reason at all, but there are plenty of exceptions and exemptions. (Hint: look-up “permissible purposes”.)

Your competition may be reluctant to trace license plates and you’re offering to do it. When the client calls you, pre-screen them and see if they have a legitimate reason (permissible purpose). If it falls under one of your states exemptions where you can do this for them then you’re offering a service that the other guy is not willing to offer.

Another example might be process serving.

For example, if you’re willing to go out and take court papers to people when the time comes, maybe your competition’s not willing to do process serving. Suddenly, you’ve got your foot in the door with a new law firm client!

It’s not that other investigators can’t offer that service, but they’re unwilling to.

Or maybe it’s that you’ll do in-person interviews or accident investigations when the other companies aren’t willing to do that. This is your second unfair advantage! Offer a service they’re not willing to offer.

The downside to this advantage is, of course, they can decide, they are willing to offer that service.

In the real world…

When I started out, got my license and opened my detective agency, for the first three months, I didn’t take any domestic cases. I was unwilling to mess around with these infidelities.

For three months, I passed those leads and cases on to other investigators. However, pretty quickly, I discovered, I needed those cases to bring in money and keep the doors open! This was especially true because initially I didn’t have a lot of other work.

I didn’t offer process serving back then, so I didn’t really have the repeat business you get from law firms.

So I needed to change what I was not willing to offer and offer it. Immediately I started taking those cases from my fellow investigators in the area!

It was a very quick and easy thing for me to do once I decided I was going to offer it.

When you offer something the other guy is not willing to offer, be prepared. Eventually, they can come around and say, “You know what? I am going to offer process serving. I am going to offer this other service.” Then you’ve lost that competitive advantage. In the meantime, you’re one step ahead of them.

3. Offer a something the competition is unable to offer.

The third and final unfair advantage I want to share with you is to offer something your competition cannot offer!

This is a very clever thing to do and virtually impossible for them to copy!

Look at yourself and find what you have that’s different or separates you from the competition?

I’m not talking about your unique selling proposition. I have a whole other video on that.

What I’m talking about here is a little different. Here I’m talking about an unfair advantage that the competition cannot offer.

For example…

Maybe you come out of law enforcement. Maybe specifically, you’re a former federal agent. You did that for twenty or thirty years. You’re retired and opened your own detective agency.

That is not something that the competition can offer! It’s not something they can replicate easily.

You and I know that just because you were a federal agent for twenty or thirty years doesn’t necessarily make you a good private investigator, but when you’re putting together your marketing package and the reasons why someone should hire you, you may want to look at that and emphasize it.

Many people are impressed with that. You’re going to want to talk about the pros that you bring to their case that the competition simply can’t.

That might include working closely with the federal prosecutor’s office. It might deal with working with inter-state or inter-federal agencies and having a network that other investigators supposedly don’t have. See how you can use that as an unfair advantage?

Okay, maybe you weren’t a federal agent.

Maybe you were a street cop for twenty or thirty years. Heck, five years, six years, two years, it doesn’t matter!

You can emphasize your former law enforcement experience and have that unfair advantage over other people in the industry.

Does being a street cop make you a good private investigator? No. Are the skill sets even the same? Pretty much, no. There are some similarities. But, when you’re marketing your services and you can say, “Look, I’ve been all over this town. I’ve been in parts you wouldn’t dare go into in broad daylight. I’ve been there at midnight. I can go places and get the answers you need.” Talk about your ability to go out into the community and get information. Talk about your local networks and the local connections that you’ve built up over the years. That can be powerful!

This is an unfair advantage that the next guy can’t easily duplicate. Maybe they can’t at all!

What if you were never a cop?

If you come out of the private sector, maybe working retail loss prevention, as I did, emphasize your private sector experience.

You can do things because you have access, networks, and experience that don’t require restricted law enforcement tools.

You may say things like… Look. law enforcement may be really good at running someone through LEEDS or may be really good at running license plates while sitting in a cruiser. They may be awesome at traffic stops, but that’s probably not be what the client needs!

If you’re coming out of the private sector, emphasize to your clients that if they’re looking at someone who might be former law enforcement, a lot of their tools are no longer valid for them. A lot of what police officers cut their teeth on and learned on, they don’t have access to anymore! But you, having come out of the private sector, working in say loss prevention or organized retail crime, you’ve been in the private sector way longer than that guy. You understand how to use private sector resources. You’ve built up the connections and networks that allow you to succeed.

See how you’re taking whatever is unique to you and difficult to replicate and turning it to an advantage!

You can from these examples, one investigative background is necessarily a better than another! Just because you’ve got your license doesn’t make you good. Just because you’re an ex-law enforcement doesn’t make you good. Just because you’ve been a private investigator for twenty years in the private sector doesn’t make you good. There are all sorts of investigators out there that are good at their little niche, maybe, but they can’t stretch out far beyond that.

The key thing is for the client to hire the best investigator for their particular case! (Don’t take a case you can’t do!)

As you can see, no matter where you are in investigative experience or where your agency is, look at what you’ve got going for you that’s difficult for the competition to replicate and that can be an unfair advantage that can last you a long, long time!

Private Investigator Case Management Software DIY guide.

Don’t buy private investigator case management software when first starting your detective agency because you really need to get clients, work cases and collect your money before getting the P.I. software and equipment you think you’ll need.

Of course case management software does more than just help you find cases you’ve worked on, but initially (just starting out!), you probably don’t need a complex and expensive system.

Many private investigators just starting out setting up their detective agency tend to overbuy stuff (EG. cameras, tracking devices, other “toys”, and the shiny things). We think, “Oh, if I had that – that would make me successful.”

It’s all about you and your skills!

My emphasis is for you is to work on yourself.

Build your skills. Build up yourself and then, when you add the tools, it amplifies your abilities. It amplifies what you can do.

Look, you can go out and buy the most expensive snazzy remote-control surveillance camera, put it on a tripod, get the perfect surveillance vehicle, tint the windows just right so you can set the camera up in the back. You can sit in a comfortable seat and watch what’s going on and control the camera with a remote-control and all that. No. No! The first thing you need to do is get a client.

Private Investigator Gear

It may sound funny to hear me say this, but buying the stuff is easy. You can buy stuff. People will sell you stuff. They’ll fall over themselves to sell you stuff!

You need to work on getting a client and, until you have a few clients, you may not even need a bunch of stuff. You can rent (or borrow!) a lot of equipment. But, specifically, today, I want to talk about case management software.

Private Investigator Case Management Software

Make no mistake about it, you don’t want to get a year, eighteen months, or two years into growing your detective agency and realize you’ve got a stack of file folders with all these cases that you’ve worked and you can’t remember who you’ve worked for, when it was, or what type of case it was.

That’s a problem, for sure, but if you have that problem, that’s a pretty darn good problem to have!

It means you’ve worked enough cases to develop a little bit of history and hopefully you’ve been turning a profit doing it!

The idea of case management software is that it can help you keep track of the cases you’re working on and find past cases quickly when you need to find them. This comes up when you have to testify 18 months after you worked the case or when you hear a name in one case and can’t help but to wonder why it sounds so familiar. Did it come up in another case you worked?

Once you’ve got a bunch of cases under your belt, you can easily go into your case management software and look at cases you’ve worked, who you’ve worked for and when it was.

What’s the best private investigator case management software when starting out?

Let me suggest to you, starting out, you don’t need to buy some fancy case management software.

Probably, to be honest with you, business is going to be kinda’ slow and you’re going to get into it six months, a year (or more!) before you need this software.

Then, when you do decide to get it, you’re going to have a much better idea of what features are important to you. If you’ve started with on software package and decide to switch to another, you’re going to find it’s ridiculously difficult to switch over.

Here’s what to do first.

Look, initially here’s what you need to do. You need to get clients.

Once you start working, how do you keep track of your cases? Use the software that’s already on your computer!

I’m talking about word processing or spreadsheets. You don’t even have to buy those programs!

There are “open source” solutions, good open source solutions. I’m not talking about pirating software, stealing, bootlegging or illegal downloads. I am very opposed that. But, there’s legitimate, open software for word processing, spreadsheets and all sorts of things. That can be your case management software when you’re trying to figure out how to start a private investigator business!

In fact, this open source (and free!) software will probably take you quite a ways before you need to buy a solution.

Here’s exactly how to do it.

Initially, your case management software may look like just a word processing document, whatever your particular program calls that. But a document.

How you title it and how you save it in your computer is the real trick! Get a system and use it consistently. You will find so much value to this.

Let me suggest a file name that looks a little like this…

Maybe you’re going to start with the date.

I like that idea because if you used the format of year, month and day, that format will come up in your computer in chronological order! It’s very easy scroll down by date and find something.

Plus, you can always “keyword search” you files for a specific date of set of dates.

For example, if you want to see all your cases from December 2018, keyword “201812” . Up will pop a list of all the cases you worked in December of 2018.

Next, you might want to use the name of your client.

I like last name, first name format.

Here’s a trickier part. The next thing might be the type of case that you worked. Maybe you use this, maybe not. It depends on how you think you’re going to be searching your cases in the future and how you want look at the types of cases you’re taking.

You might put the letters BG in for background check. SURV for surveillances. PS for process serving. ST for skip trace. Use a code/system that makes sense to you, but always use the system you decided on. Don’t make exceptions because you’ll inevitably forget!

Of course, some of your cases involve multiple types of investigations, but basically, you want to pick your system and stick with it. Maybe it’s simply: “What did the client hire me to do?” Surveillance. Infidelity case. Process serving. Etcetera.

The subject of your investigation.

Don’t miss this… I like to have the name of the subject of the investigation on the file as well.

You might say, “Did I have a subject with that name before? That name really rings a bell.”

Simply do a keyword search for the subject’s name, and boom, up pops the file with that person.

If you only know a first name or last name, your keyword search will quickly give you a list of possible matches! And it’s a lot quicker to go through that list looking of a match than to go through all of your case files!


Pick a system. Use it initially. I think you’re going to find you can go quite a ways into your investigative business before you need to really invest in some true investigative software.

What I’ve covered here today is not by any means exhaustive. It’s just a starting point and an idea. Specifically, I want you to save that little bit of money starting out. Don’t buy something that you don’t need just yet. Buying something you think you might need in the future is a little bit dicey. You can drive yourself crazy trying to do that. Also, you can drive yourself bankrupt buying things that never end up giving you any return on your investment.

Don’t Forget…

With any method you use, think in terms of two particular things.

1. Back-up your files!

We know all hard drives die eventually. That’s just the way it is.

2. Consider encrypting your files.

You never know when you may need to keep them safe and secure from prying eyes.

Your Feedback

If you have ideas or experience with case management outside of using a particular kind of software, please drop it in the comments. We can all learn from each other.

The Real Big Picture

Here’s the view from 10,000 feet… all the shiny bells and whistles are not going to make you a better investigator. It’s what you have in your head!

It’s your skills and abilities, and developing you that’s really going to pay off!

Really, concentrate on improving yourself. Work on getting the clients. Grow and build your business from there, buying things as you need them.

Citizen’s Arrest Fail Case Study 01. Retired police officer arrested.

February 9, 2019 a retired police officer tried to assist citizens who were making an apprehension for theft.

The employees of a national chain hardware store tried to stop a man for theft. The suspect fled on foot and into a car.

Apparently the retired cop told the suspect to stop, but he didn’t. As the suspect drove off, the retired cop fired twice at the car. One of the shots grazed the suspect’s neck.

The wounded suspect was able to drive himself to a local medical clinic. His injuries were not considered to be life-threatening.

Later, the police determined the shooting was not justified.

They arrested the retired police officer for assault with a deadly weapon.

The theft suspect went to the hospital and is expected to be released. It appears he will cited for misdemeanor theft.

Larry Kaye, Author of the book How To Make a Citizen’s Arrest commented, “You gotta’ be kidding me! Who does that!?!”

Larry’s View:

Look, if a retired law enforcement officer can get it so wrong, you really got to think twice about how you would react during a crime in progress.

If you think you might want to get involved, do your homework ahead of time. Does it surprise you that I suggest you should read my book?

If you can’t bring yourself to put that much “work” into learning about a citizen’s arrest, at least read my blog post on it!

You know what? On second thought, if you won’t take the personal initiative to read one single book on the subject, then don’t even try it. You’re gonna’ get it wrong anyways.

Don’t get banned for life skip tracing Unclaimed Funds.

Today, I want to share with you the legal pitfall that can get you banned for life from getting your Private Investigator’s License if you’re trying to make money by skip tracing from what you learned in a “Find Unclaimed Funds” training course.

Skip tracing is a skill you may already have and you may be quite good at it already. And finding unclaimed funds for people and reuniting them with their money requires skip tracing skills.

How Unclaimed Funds Work

Companies such as a credit card company, retirement savings plan or maybe a bank, have an account that’s been inactive for too long, and they’re trying to get in-touch with the person who has the funds in that account. It can be a modest amount of money, say $37 or it could be $3,700 dollars (or more)!

The company tries, but they can’t locate the rightful owner to issue the refund.

When they can’t reunite people with their funds, they turn the money over to the state unclaimed funds division. The actual state office that holds the funds may go by a different name in your state. A lot of times it’s run through the Secretary of State’s office or Department of Commerce.

What citizens can do, is go online and search by name and see if they have any unclaimed funds due to them.

This has become super easy over the years, especially with the advent of the internet. No longer do you have to mail off a letter and request the information or go down to the office and have it checked for you. You can see right online if there’s unclaimed funds for you. Just type in your name.

These “Find Unclaimed Funds” courses teach you to go online and find unclaimed funds and help the rightful owner claim the funds while you collect a percentage of the claimed money as a “finder’s fee”.

Of course you’re looking for the larger unclaimed funds, right? The $3,100 or $5,000, or $10,000 unclaimed funds and those are harder and harder to find because more and more people are doing this themselves online!

But, the courses suggest you find these unclaimed funds, look at who they’re due to, and then skip trace that person.

Find that person and send them a letter – a proposal – explaining that you know where there are some unclaimed funds for them, and that (for a percentage) you will help them find and claim the money.

Many times, this can be legal and helpful. There are people who just say, “Yes. Do the paperwork for me. Help me out with this. I don’t want to mess with it.”

Here’s the problem.

Because it’s so easy for people to do this for themselves, most of the larger unclaimed funds have been claimed! That means, in order for it to be profitable for you, you have to collect a decent amount of money (a larger percentage of the smaller funds) in order to make enough money that it’s worthwhile for you to do this!

What percentage of those smaller unclaimed funds do you need to collect to make it worthwhile to do all the work of skip tracing this person and reuniting them with the funds? That can vary.

If it’s a $10,000 fund, maybe a 10% finder’s fee (one thousand dollars) could be quite worth it!

The problem is a lot of these unclaimed funds are much, much smaller. Maybe $280, something like that. If you’re reuniting someone with a $280 unclaimed fund and only getting ten percent, you’re only getting $28! That’s probably not worth your time.

And if you use any paid mechanisms like an online database that you pay for or even if you run down to the courthouse to pull some papers, with parking cost and your time, it’s probably not worth it to do for twenty-eight dollars.

So, you sit and say to yourself (as is wise to do), “What makes this business worthwhile to me?”

You might say, “Well, 30% seems fair. Now it’s worth me doing the work.”

I have no problem with that. Charge what you’re worth! Charge enough money to turn a profit! However, here’s the trouble…

What nobody tells you.

The thing that the courses aren’t telling any of their “students” is… Some states cap the percentage at which you can collect a portion of a finder’s fee.

Real world example: One state caps your fee at ten percent, which does seem reasonable to me, but it may really affect your ability to turn a profit!

Here’s the price you really pay.

If you don’t understand the cap that your state places on finder’s fee for unclaimed funds, that can really bite you. Now, you’re committing a crime if you’re charging more than the percent they allow!

If you’re trying to get your private investigators license, this can be really, really problematic because some states, for real, for sure, I guarantee you, have a provision in the requirements to be private investigator that you never have a previous infraction for committing unlicensed investigative services.

I’m going to say that again… You cannot, in some places, get a PI license if you have an infraction or conviction for doing unlicensed investigative work.

If you’re doing unclaimed funds work and think you’re doing everything legitimately and ethically, but haven’t done the deep research to learn your trade well, then you might find yourself coming afoul of this percentage rule that the state has established and then you’ve got an infraction that can get you banned from getting your private investigator’s license.

You see, you’re using investigative tools and techniques and providing investigative services and that can get you banned from getting your license for life because the places that I know that have that “no infraction” qualification have not placed a time limit on it. That means it could have been 30 years ago and they can still hold it against you! (That’s some pretty expensive “free” online training!)

The Solution

How do you avoid this? A big part of the solution is to vet the information you’re learning for free. Make sure it’s trustworthy.

Ask yourself who’s the instructor? Is it’s coming from an experienced expert, preferably from somebody who’s done this before?

And if it’s paid training ask yourself if “they” offer a rock-solid guarantee? (Usually “they” are people hiding behind a generic P.I. “school” name.)

If you do decide to take the next step and get paid training on something, whatever course it might be, make sure that the course is providing you with good solid, complete information. One little “tattle-tell” that’ll let you know if it’s worth it or not: do they have a money back guarantee? More importantly, how is it structured?

There are a lot of online courses that’ll give you a six-day money back guarantee. That doesn’t help you a whole lot if they’re trickling out the information to you!

Maybe it’s a ten or twelve-week course. The first two lessons are going to be really, really basic like “The duties of a Private Investigator” or “The history of private investigations”.

That doesn’t hardly help you at all! And you have to make a decision on whether or not to request a refund that early in the course?!?!

You’re looking at the lessons you know are coming up like “Sources and methods for skip tracing” and “Advanced mobile surveillance techniques” ( those are the things you’re interested in and maybe need to know a little more specifically) and the course creator (whoever it is!) is asking you to request your refund now or tough luck! Those first-week lessons don’t tell you anything! Then, boom, you’re on the hook because the course has a really weak guarantee. I hate that.

When you’re trying to learn something, sure, use the free resources online. But, use them with a grain of salt. Evaluate them!

When you decide that you do need to get paid training, ask yourself some of these questions, like is there a solid guarantee? Make sure that you’re getting exactly what you want and you’re not going to get stiffed.

This would be the perfect solution.

I’m going to give you a little piece of advice here that I give every week and if course creators would follow this advice, you wouldn’t have anything to worry about.

I encourage you to follow it at all times yourself in business but also with your family, and in any aspect of your life… Do the right thing, even if it’s the hard thing.
