Choosing a Philippines Private Investigator

The Philippines is a high risk nation for fraud and scams of all types, and as a result, Philippines private investigator and background checks companies are in high demand. The task of finding a professional and experienced private detective in the Philippines, unfortunately, is not easy. Most are local Filipinos who lack professional training, equipment and experience. Finding a professional investigator is truly essential.

According to industry observers, consumers are advised to go with a U.S. or Europe based investigation company, instead of a local Philippine investigation agency or investigator. On average, a U.S. or European company provides a higher level of client service, and the organizations are usually more accountable and transparent. Even though a Philippines based company or "investigator" can offer lower prices, it may mean money wasted. Obtaining evidence requires professional experience.

Currently the largest professional Philippines private detective, Philippine PI™ is based in the United States but maintains an equipped team of 10 to 15 full time field investigators in the Philippines. The company has relationships with embassies, the NBI (National Bureau of Investigation), the NSO (National Statistics Office), and Philippine police agences. The company maintains the highest client satisfaction rate in the industry, and offers full service and discreet private investigation and complete background check services. All investigators are professionally trained, natives of the Philippines, and have experience in federal law enforcement and/or military investigation positions.

Be sure to ask the following questions. Does the agency list its company address and phone number on its Contact Us page? If not, don't even consider it. Does the website display professional seals, such as McAfee, the Better Business Bureau or Truste? Does the website use secure connections so your information is secure? (Look for a lock on your browser). Does the agency offer a secure payment method on its own website? Does the site display a clear Privacy Policy? If the answer to any of these questions is no, be safe and smart, and keep shopping for a professional.

All the Best,
