"The security guard who came to site was a very sweet and kind older gentleman. He was armed but did not have to use his weapon. He was very good at survelling the" situation, performed regular checks on all 4 entrances of our 2 buildings and kept an ear to the ground to advise me of what was being said by the tenants. My only issue was that one of his duties was to get a sign in sheet going, insist on photo ID form each person entering the property and take a photo of each piece of identification with his phone which he could then email me later. The reason for this is that one of our tenant had a criminal record and was using an
. I needed to see what name he was using on his identification. It was one of the main reasons for hiring the security guard. The guard was extremely flexible with his hours, agreeing to stay fr whatever we needed, and very considerate. I was just upset about not having this key photographic evidence that I really needed not being available to me.

"I called the number, left a message with the assistant.
returned my call promptly and offered to write down the information I had on my" brother-in-law, or she said I could send it by e-mail. I e-mailed his name, date of birth, son's name, and a 20 year old address.
acknowledged the e-mail and said she would start on the job that day. By the end of the day, she e-mailed me a 26 page report that included a good address and phone number for my brother-in-law. I called him the next day. Great work! Timely!

Hiring a private investigator

Yes just like on TV, you can hire your own private investigator to spy on an unfaithful spouse or catch an embezzling employee. Here's how to hire a private detective.

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 Portsmouth


Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
was absolutely amazing. I requested their assistance on a Saturday morning, expecting to get a call or email back on the next business day.
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
called me Saturday morning to start the work. Emails continued throughout the weekend as we fine-tuned the
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
criteria and information available. By noon Monday, they had found my missing person and emailed me a detailed report. In addition to the success of the
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
, though, I want to add that
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
was a real professional. He was supportive and empathetic while being creative and diligent in the
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
. I cannot say enough good things about
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
- Jason D J.

The Good:
1. Listened with empathy and a patient ear at a time of need.
2. Appeared to be competent, though he did not deliver on most of the claims made during the initial meeting.
3. Partially refunded the retainer - although the refund should have been much more.

The Bad:
1. Claimed that he could hack into the subject's computer and also her Amazon account - did none of that, in spite of being requested to.
2. Seemed to be more interested in getting the retainer and then billing on own investigation, as opposed to clear direction provided by me.

Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
listened with empathy at a time when I was at a loss of options to find a family member. However, come time to deliver after the first 6 hours of investigation, I found his strategy and investigation to be headed down a wrong direction. So I clearly gave him a priority list to follow, containing items which he had initially said he could do.
The next day he called and told me that he had billed additional hours of the retainer, but hadn't delivered on any of the directives given earlier.
I did manage to locate my family member by myself through some very basic follow ups on leads - which you would imagine a professional would have done within the 1st hour of investigation.
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
would likely be good in a monitoring situation or for running basic traces. I'm all for paying an organization for their time spent, but given the final outcome, I felt that I was grossly overcharged.
The exaggerated claims and the huge amount charged for an investigation that yielded no results, however, soured the engagement for me.
- Rajat S.

It went very well. Initially I called the company and spoke with a person named
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
. He was very patient in listening to my issues and concerns. He recommended that I email
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
C (the founder of the company). They quickly handled my case and with in a few hours I received a 50 page report. In this situation they worked very hard and did everything that they could to assist me me.
- Mary M.

Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
were very prompt with their communication. The information given was what I requested. I found this investigative service very helpful and very professional. I would definitely use again in the future.
- Jennifer F.

It went just as they advised; set up a face to face meeting, provided detailed requirements, and executed a plan to quickly get me results. Very professional staff and easy to work with. Affordable & professional.
- Sheryl B.

In summary, I will be forever grateful to
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
because he recognized the investigative services that I needed him to perform - rather than merely complying with providing the services that I requested of him.
I initially spoke with
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
about locating a person. A few months ago, I received a notice on the letterhead of a valid insurance company indicating that a family member (who had passed 9 years ago) had an outstanding insurance policy, of which no one in my family had been aware. The surprising part was that I did not recognize the name of the named beneficiary. I called the number on the form to obtain clarification but was left with more answers - and the instructions to complete the paperwork and mail in the forms. Because I didn't recognize the beneficiary's name as that of a family member, or even that of a family friend, I was obligated to at least ensure that this named beneficiary was deceased so that the policy proceeds could flow to the estate. I spoke with 3 PIs and 2 had no problem extending their services to locate the named beneficiary on the fake policy.
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
, however, didn't stop there. He confirmed that he could locate the person using specified
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
tools BUT he advised me that something didn't smell right regarding both the policy and the procedures utilized by the company. I sent him the documents that I had received and
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
's instincts were correct: The forms and correspondence materials could be easily downloaded from the insurance company's website but the phone number located on the paperwork did not match those of the insurance company. I'm a busy person (as evidenced by the fact that it took me months to address the multiple mailings that I had received) so
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
saved me both time and energy by exposing the fake policy. I'm further relieved because the family member named as the policy holder was VERY organized so this mysterious policy never made sense to me. Should I require future investigative services that do not require physical proximity,
Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
will be the first person that i contact.

Portsmouth Private Investigators Provider Name Locked
is the best! They operated with utmost integrity and have delivered the results I wanted from them. They were very thorough in their investigations. It was not easy to do an extensive background check on 3 individuals but they were able to come through. Communication was prompt and regular. They are a pro. Without hesitation I would recommend them.
