The number one client to avoid as a private investigator is the creepy client and a huge red flag that a potential client is bad news is a man who ask you to follow a woman home after she gets off work!
This is because he’s usually trying to find her home address after all his other attempts have failed.
She may actually be avoiding or even hiding from him! This could be a weirdo stalker or an ex-boyfriend creep.
Surveillance is a great tool, but on a skip trace, surveillance should probably be the last resort.
Finding the Place of Employment (POE) on a skip can be difficult, but if you’re a professional investigator or process server and know of a past employer on your subject, your job may be half done because of the wealth of information that is available through OSINT and public records.
Where to Learn More…
Learn more with my Public Records Mini-Course. Previously only open by invitation to Licensed Private Investigators, I’ve now opened it to the public because I believe public records are the people’s records!
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.
