There are times when an objective party is needed to investigate on behalf of an employer, insurance policyholder, or corporate leadership. Personal surveillance requires proper licensure to execute an investigation in a given state. Practiced and discreet skills are a necessity along with an understanding of the law and insurance policy language to identify acts that are a violation of any regulation with which the surveilled person must comply.
Ways We Can Help
Missing Persons, Kidnapping, Abduction, And Runaways
The Strategos International Team conducts all investigations with the foundation of focusing on the best possible outcome for the missing person and the family. Filing a missing person’s report with the local law enforcement agency is essential and should be executed at the earliest possible time. However, the Strategos International team is not required to wait a mandated time period to start researching possible locations and scenarios for the missing person. Our nationwide team will pull information from various law enforcement entities and professional contacts using the details known about the missing person. All information is relevant; age, gender, last known location, personal and social media contacts, business relationships, medical history, and emotional stability are details that will help the investigators narrow their search.
Insurance and Workers' Compensation Fraud
Insurance fraud is incredibly prevalent and is not a victimless crime. As consumers and employers, we are all impacted by fraudulent claims that pay out large settlements to unworthy persons. The only way to combat a false claim is through well documented and confirmed proof of an intentionally false claim. Collecting the necessary documentation may involve monitoring a person to capture them acting in a way that is non-compliant with their medical restrictions, researching an individual’s personal or professional history to demonstrate how they would benefit from defrauding an insurance company.
The intent of the surveillance should be to confirm the fraudulent act’s sole purpose was to collect insurance money. Protect yourself and your business by being pro-active and thoroughly investigating questionable claims.
