Typically, investigators have only one single opportunity to conduct a proper and effective witness or suspect interview. If this event becomes a missed opportunity, valuable information may be lost forever and otherwise successful cases may go awry.
One of the most critical stages of many investigations, both in the private and police sector, is the subject’s interview and interrogation. Many cases are won or lost on the basis of this critical stage of an investigation.
Most fraud investigations begin with a meeting between the investigator and the client. The person launching the investigation explains to their investigators why they suspect fraud has taken place and hand over any evidence they have to the investigator. A good fraud investigator will use this initial information to find more evidence and more facts. A fraud investigator may use surveillance, asset searches, background checks, employee investigations, business investigations, and other types of methods to get to the bottom of a case.
Private investigations can identify and effectively mitigate or manage, at an early stage, any developments that may threaten the resilience and continued survival of a corporation.
Usually done to protect the business’ interests. This is the type of case MS Recoveries & Investigations specialize in.
Employees may be monitored to ensure policies are being followed, conduct is ethical, and the use of company property is legal. Surveillance investigators may also investigate issues with recurrent theft, property vandalism, and worker’s compensation cases. Corporate surveillance may also involve tracking the usage of computers and monitoring security areas.
Employee Background Check
A background check looks further into a person’s professional and personal history. A background check investigator will conduct interviews and find documents that will give you a greater understanding of the person you are looking into.
There is no standard or routine background check. The investigation should be tailored to your areas of concern, reasons for finding out more, and your overall needs. Whether you’re hiring a new employee, looking for a nanny, or are about to make a new investment, it’s a good idea to get a better understanding of who or what you will be involved with.
