Here is episode #10 of the Private Investigator podcast with no name answering the question of whether or not you can be cheated as a private investigator.
Cheated in Money
Okay, I guess technicality speaking, you can be cheated in terms of money if you’re a P.I.
It happens… just like everything in life.
But… you can work on reducing the odds and still serve your clients well.
Cheated in Life
Even if you are cheated in terms of money, I believe you cannot be cheated in life.
If you do your job well you are building virtues of persistence, justice, prudence and temperance in yourself. You are becoming a better person and that is more important than most people realize.
Strictly thinking in terms of money (and that is not even close to the most important scorecard)), but thinking strictly in terms of money, if you become a better person, you become the type of person who can serve others better and (if you want) you can turn that service into money earned fairly while improving others’ lives and your own!
So… No, I don’t think you can be cheated as a private investigator.

Public Urination isn’t really all that big of a deal, however in the security and investigative field a professional like you needs to understand what it means when you find this minor criminal charge on a background check or witness it on or near the property you are tasked with guarding.
For Private Investigators
On a background check (and usually that means a pre-employement screening background check), public urination may show as the charge of public indecency.
As a P.I. you need to understand the difference between a “true” public urination offense and a public indecency offense that is sexually oriented like lewd conduct!
For Security Guards
As a security professional, you need to understand that most public urination is proceeded by public drunkenness. That means the person has been drinking too much and now is making another bad decision.
So… you need to be alert to the increased possibility this person may make another bad decision that’s serious enough for you get involved. (Most of times that “involvement” is going to be making a call to report to your supervisor then follow you other post orders.)
And don’t forget, true public indecency and lewd conduct is a crime that we know tends to escalate to far more serious sexually oriented crimes in the future.
Stay smart and stay safe!

Okay, I don’t want to scare you because process serving is not really too dangerous, but you can increase your safety by being smart about it when you serve dangerous or unstable people civil litigation papers like subpoenas, summonses and restraining orders by getting some police assistance.
This week’s video is a clip directly from The Investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Process Serving and it teaches just one way to handle dangerous people when serving process.
The process serving trick is to call for a “police stand-by”.
You do this by calling the non-emergency phone number for the police (NOT 911), and ask for officers to stand-by while you serve the court papers.
Do not over-use or abuse this trick. Never lie about the danger you think there is or about the person you are serving. But, do use this legitimate service as needed to maintain your safety, the safety of the person you’re serving and the safety of all those near-by.
I’ve got a ton more to teach you about serving process and making money as a process server and I mean, you need to learn these things somewhere. I would love it if you got my training on surveillance or process serving, but if nothing else let me suggest you get my free special report If You Want To Be a Private Investigator Give Up… Unless You Do These Three Things.
