Multiple Source Online Checks
Prior to any surveillance investigation its best practice to complete a thorough Online Investigation to obtain any easily accessible information through multiple sources. It is more advanced than a simple Google search and can often uncover critical information, which can help in the planning for a surveillance investigation.
Often with a surveillance investigation it can be difficult to determine the most opportunistic time to commence surveillance. When an Online Investigation has been completed it assists in narrowing down the ideal time to commence surveillance. This in turn reduces the cost of surveillance to you and greatly increases the chance of an efficient, successful investigation.
In simple terms, an online investigation is an examination of the Subject to identify what information, if any, exists online with relevance to the investigation. We gather socially, advertise and manage businesses online, therefore its not surprising that most of us have some parts of our lives captured online.
We offer this service to our clients as part of the surveillance process.
A very common example:
A male claimant had an active life insurance claim where he was receiving approximately $6,500 per month to the age of 65. At the time of the claim he was 47. So, for the remainder of the claim period between $1.1m – $1.4m could be paid out. However, a desktop investigation identified that the male subject had been running a business while in receipt of the insurance money.
Despite the male subject’s attempts to hide the registration of the business (it was in another person’s name), desktop enquiries were successful in connecting him to the ownership, management and daily running of the online business. Surveillance may not have ever established he was actively involved in an online business. But an online desktop investigation, along with the strategic deployment of surveillance, achieved the desired result.
