Are YOU Prepared For All Eventualities?????

Posted by Christine Burke on Tuesday, September 12, 2017, In : Background Checks 


We all love this saying but it sometimes seems hard to implement when we are dealing with someone we love, or parting with money. 

We (my family and I) are coming out of the most recent Hurricane Irma and it can be a very frustrating time. I remember going through Hurricane Andrew and the waiting seemed to be unbearable, along with all of the clean up after. Now, we are VERY thankful that the hurricane treated South Florida better than expected.

And, like with background checks, gut feelings, d...

Marketing Your Private Investigator or Process Server Business

Posted by Christine Burke on Thursday, February 16, 2017, In : Private Investigator and Process Server Marketing 


These are the stats from one of my sales channels for January 2017. You can see (hopefully) that 20% of total sales came from a mobile device and new buyers make up 93% of total shoppers.

What does this mean for you? If you do not have a website or your website is not mobile optimized, you might be missing out on 20% of your customers. Too, did you know that Google has been rumored to down rank sites that are not mobile optimized?

And, how would you like to get 93% more new clients each month? ...

GPS Locator and Tracking For Your Child or Aging Parent

Posted by Christine Burke on Wednesday, September 30, 2015, In : child custody investigations 



Are you having child custody concerns? Do you want to feel more confident when your child is with the ex, at school, or other function?

I was recently brainstorming with a client during a custody investigation. We were finding that the other custodial parent was not adhering to the Judgment and Agreement.

Usually we recommend a locator program on a cell phone but this was proving difficult due to the child's age. Through research, my client was able to locate this neat Care F GPS and Emergency ...

What's the Cost? Pay now or pay later.

Posted by Christine Burke on Sunday, August 16, 2015, In : private investigation 


As I'm sure with many professions, I get asked the question, "What does it cost to do a background check?" or "How much do you charge for this?" 

A recent posting in our investigator forum was talking about a new service whereby investigators would work at a set rate, which is at least 2/3rd's lower than my rate. And, from the comments on the post, I gather it was well below what those investigators were charging too.

If you were going in to have a serious surgery or procedure done, let's say b...

Moving Forward - Debtor Locates

Posted by Christine Burke on Thursday, June 25, 2015, In : Missing Persons and Locates 


One of the frequent calls I get is for assistance in locating people and debtors. As an investigator, we have access to a wealth of databases, including driver's license and registration information.

I just received this information regarding the most popular moving months from TransUnion:



They advise that from their analysis, there is a "seasonality" for moving which extends from July through December with August scoring the highest for moves. This may coincide with the end of summer and start...

What Happens If It Isn't Served In Time?

Posted by Christine Burke on Thursday, May 28, 2015, In : Process Serving 


Well, it could be a BIT more than a parking ticket.....you could lose important evidence in your case, or if worse comes to worst, have your case dismissed!

Just yesterday, I had conversations with an attorney and one a business owner. Both were complaining about other process serving firms who were late with serving documents and delivering critical case documents. It's unfortunate that I hear this foo often lately....well, not unfortunate for me because I now have two NEW clients.

Use of Force Investigations

Posted by Christine Burke on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, In : criminal defense investigations 


Recently we have seen incidents of complaints against the police for improper use of force and negligence in death investigations. These cases are instigating public demonstrations and investigations into officer behavior and departmental policies.

Aside from making the national news, use of force should be examined in each case when someone has been arrested and may or may not have been charged with an assault on an officer. Many departments have implemented and utilize a Use of Force policy....

No Foolin'! We found the pot of gold :)

Posted by Christine Burke on Friday, April 3, 2015, In : judgment recovery asset investigations 

This past April 1 was no fool's day for us as the surprise was on the debtor!

Through use of our asset location services, we were able to locate not one, but two accounts for the debtor. We actually found the pot of gold with a savings account holding a cool $10,000. Garnishment anyone?

If you have a judgment and don't know what to do, quit fooling around and call us 480-588-0511.

What Was Your Last Meal Like? Maybe They Need A Mystery Shopping Investigation!

Posted by Christine Burke on Friday, February 13, 2015, In : Mystery Shopping Investigations 


Do you have a favorite restaurant here in town? You know the place, where it's usually great and then one day you get awful service? Or maybe it's a change of management?

I know just the thing! Yesterday I had one of the worst meal experiences in a local Tempe restaurant which is part of a small local chain. I love going to this restaurant, just not the Tempe location.

The best part of knowing a chain restaurant is supposed to be consistent service at all locations and knowing that your favorit...

Is My Neighborhood Safe? Checking The Calls For Service Report

Posted by Christine Burke on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, In : Background Checks 


A few months ago a client was talking about moving and wanted my input on "safe areas of town". I advised him to visit the neighborhoods he was interested in at various days and times so he would get a feel of the neighborhood - as in the daytime many folks are at work - and kids are at school - all looks peaceful and quiet. I also recommended that he check any particular address, for a home he was seriously interested in buying, with the local police department.

Yesterday, I heard an ad on th...

Can You Help Me With My Insurance Claim?

Posted by Christine Burke on Monday, February 2, 2015, In : Insurance Investigations 



Yes, we can! Don't just take "no" for an answer!

In trying to have an insurance claim paid, it can be a big fight depending on what company you are dealing with, what claims representative you get, the circumstances involved and how much money is on the line.

Take it from me, who just recently had to fight her own battle. And, I used to work for an insurance company - I knew what they were telling me was not right and I continued to move forward until my claim was taken care of properly.

Locating People To Serve Papers

Posted by Christine Burke on Friday, January 23, 2015, In : Missing Persons and Locates 


Frequently we get calls such as, "I need to serve someone but I don't know where they are" or "I need to serve someone but I don't know their exact name". Don't give up on what you need to do, get help from an experienced investigator so you can find the person.

We recently assisted two clients who needed to locate someone to serve papers. In one case, it was an estranged spouse and they were unsure where the party was located. We were able to conduct a database search (which can be quick an i...
