"I called on Monday and he called me back Tuesday morning. I explained the situation to him and he was very understanding and sympathetic," but in addition he explained the situation from an objective and professional viewpoint. He was informative and helped me work through the issues we were facing. While I did not utilize his services, I definitely would reach to him again if the situation warranted his expertise. I appreciated his time and demeanor.

" us astray in our for our beloved dog, . I recommend NOT hiring his services. Three days after" my sweet dog went missing—Friday, May 4th--I hired to help with a and Rescue on Monday, May 7th. I was beside myself with worry about my dog and was willing to try anything. I believe Mr. preyed on my vulnerability. He me down a trail near my house with his two and rescue dogs following my dog's scent. He claimed their ears were alert--meaning that she was alive and not in bad health. They followed her scent to railroad tracks and told us, from his experience as a police officer in Portland (which is where this took place), my dog was probably being by a homeless person--and that the tracks downtown. We spent so much time searching downtown, handing flyers to homeless people, showing up at dinner times at missions. I found out where all the camp outs were. So much $, time and hope. It took us two more weeks of searching to find evidence that had been hit by a train THE MORNING AFTER SHE WENT MISSING and euthanized at a local vet's office. ' report indicated that had traveled West on the Columbia Blvd. pedestrian trial and was walking with a homeless person In fact, she had headed East along the railroad tracks and was deceased at the time of his . IS A FRAUD.

Some of the new credit cards have RFID readable chips embeddded in the card that can be read by someone passing a reader within a few inches of your card - say while you are standing in line. Tinfoil may or may not work, depending on the frerquency used for the card. Best bet is to buy sliop covers specifically designed to block RFID reading - Amazon has a set of 10 for (as I remember) about $20 or so. If you travel, you might also think about a passport slip case, because the new passport have RFID biometric and ID data embedded in them - takes a different size and type of cover, because frequency is different.

Private Investigating reviews in Portland



It was not only a waste of time and money, it us in a phony direction risking the life of our pet. She is a small dog and it is still frightening to me to think of her on her own in the city and on busy city streets for 11 days. When she was eventually found, she was extremely fragile and so frightened she had to be trapped. ...More
The outcome was positive in that we were able to get her back safely, but absolutely not with any assistance from . I understand that this type of service is risky and there are no guarantees that he would be successful. But my complaint is that I do not believe he ever was following her scent and that his story of traveling with the homeless was story concocted to appease us and to justify the expense. And he was so adamant that he was corrrect, it closed all other possibilities in our minds.
She could easily have perished in the several days of the wasted by Rescue sending us off in the wrong direction and discouraging our continued in the area of her last sighting. Had it not been for his absolute insistence that his was correct and all other possibilities were wrong, then we might have expanded in both directions. But we believed him and even in the end when we did abandon his homeless theory, it was an extremely difficult thing to do for fear that we were making a mistake and she would be lost to us forever.
Losing a pet is so emotional and we were all grasping at anything we could to locate her. Taking advantage of people when they are so vulnerable is shameful.
