Fraud Investigations

Fraud investigations, different here to our Insurance investigations, are generally applied to commercial situations in which some form of deceit has taken place to give an individual or third party an unfair advantage over another, aside from a person reaping the benefits of a false claim, for example.

Fraud, being an act of deception, can be incredibly difficult to prevent, recognize and address for the average person or business owner. Australia is unfortunate enough to bear the title of one of the World’s most economic crime-affected countries, and it’s with those two notions in mind that Precise Investigation has developed a tailor-made, fraud prevention solution for small, medium and large-scale corporations to apply immediately.

Insurance Investigations & Fraud Investigation

Insurance investigations, otherwise known as Factual Investigations, are a set of specialist investigation services, specific to assisting insurance companies, banks, self-insurers and associated organisations to effectively determine the legitimacy of a claim.

Australia’s insurance industry loses in excess of $2.2 billion, every year, to false claims. As a direct result, policy premiums rise to accommodate the loss, which in turn leaves some with no choice other to abandon their insurance policies all together.

By extension, with Australia boasting some of the highest rates of successful false claims in the world, there comes a greater need than ever for professional insurance investigations and the expert investigators behind them.

Debugging / Bug Sweeping / Hidden Camera Detection

Given the turbulent and ever-advancing nature of technology around the world, and the mounting pressure on corporations to continually deliver on or above their customer’s expectations, there comes a greater risk of corporate espionage.
 
When one company holds an invaluable trade secret, sometimes patents, copyrights and other trademarks just aren’t enough to protect them from being stolen. That, added to the fact that over 200,000 bugs are imported into Australia every year, from China alone, is a significant indication that people are trying to listen in on others, regardless of whether the victims believe they hold anything of interest or not.  Having your offices and corporate vehicles swept for bugs on a regular basis is a surefire way to reduce the risks of your company being infiltrated, and your precious development plans, intellectual property and other crucial information being stolen.

Due Diligence, Employee Misconduct & Workplace Theft

Due diligence is a crucial aspect of investment, whether it’s a matter of investing time, trust or resources into a person, a business, a brand-new product or the services that back it.

As such, it’s easy to recognise the significance in obtaining error-free, up-to-date and practical information regarding those investments that can then be applied to better understand the circumstances surrounding them and their prospective value. Thankfully, Precise Investigation’s professional investigators are available to do just that.

Precise Investigation takes great pride in providing some of Australia’s most effective, thorough and accurate due diligence services to businesses around the country, having already assisted more than five hundred companies to successfully identify potential hazards in pending offers and threats to their ongoing success.

Corporate Surveillance & Covert Investigations

Established in 1987 by John Ioannou, a qualified and dually experienced surveillance investigator of thirty years, Precise Investigation has grown to provide businesses across Australia with an impressive range of private investigation solutions – most recently being awarded accreditation as an investigations provider for WorkSafe Victoria.

With that being said, and while the company has indeed branched out, Precise Investigation’s primary focus continues to rest on providing commercial clients across the country with some of the most successful surveillance and factual investigation services available.

Precise Investigation maintains its reputation as a leader in surveillance investigation expertise, experience and application; through detailed briefs, careful planning and access to advanced surveillance technologies, our detectives have proven their effectiveness in the field, time and time again.

Skip Tracing & Locates

In the world of commerce, it’s not uncommon for businesses to lose track of disgruntled employees, non-paying customers, debtors or even ex-staff members that need to be located for confidential reasons.

Most frequently within the corporate sector, Precise Investigation is called upon to assist with headhunting old colleagues; finding the occasional customer who failed to pay their bills on time and even; provide the whereabouts of an ex-business partner who retained critical information about a client’s organisation or business development plans.

Background Checks and Employment Screening

Although most companies have some form of Human Resources division available to assist with recruitment, the associated HR staff lack the insight, experience and skillsets necessary to effectively determine whether incoming applications are legitimate or not.

In many instances, it is blindingly obvious if a person isn’t qualified to perform a particular duty, but with that, there are countless web-based agencies that “assist” people in putting together their résumés – people who can’t speak or write in English suddenly have a professionally designed and written CV that obviously isn’t representative of the person applying.  Furthermore, Australian businesses spend millions every year on perfecting their recruitment processes to reduce the costs associated with finding the ideal staff and yet so few take professional employment screening services into account.

Internet / Forensic Computing Investigations

Computer forensics, or internet and computer investigations as it is otherwise known, involves the analysis of data on given computer systems, mobile devices and networks as a means to locate, extract, compile and interpret information that is generally inaccessible to the public. The information that Precise Investigation uncovers is gathered in line with Australian law, thereby affording our clients the ability to use that information as admissible evidence in a court of law.

There are numerous reasons as to why a commercial client might require a forensic investigator, or team thereof, to analyse their computer equipment and networks, most notably to determine whether sensitive information has been leaked or to prevent malingering employees from causing harm to the company through internal, technological malpractice.

Debt Collections

As one of Australia’s most reputable private investigation firms, Precise Investigation offers clients across all market sectors an unrivalled approach to debt collection, resolution and recovery.

Aside from our thirty years’ experience in the field, and unlike most collection agencies in Australia, Precise Investigation couples each debt collection service with a host of investigative strategies that aim to maximize recovery rates and allow our clients to continue going about their business uninterrupted.

Most collection agencies will require a great deal of information from their clients, including the contact details and addresses of those in debt, as the companies in question are only equipped to handle the collections themselves. Precise Investigation, on the other hand, utilizes every plausible investigation service we can muster to provide our clients with far more than a standard recovery solution.

Online Behaviour Enquiries

Online behaviour enquiries, similar to Internet and Computer Forensic Investigations, are slightly simplified in the fact that they focus entirely on the online activities of a given subject, as opposed to recovering data and determining the likelihood of potentially malicious acts taking place within an office network environment. By extension, an online behaviour enquiry is a detailed search into a person’s online history, taking into account what they’ve been up to on social media, lesser-frequented online forums and idea-sharing platforms as well as providing information on previous website ownership and, in some cases, even identifying online expenditure.

Precise Investigation can perform online behaviour enquiries from any location around the world, albeit we are based firmly in Australia, with the assistance of our dedicated support team. Together, our investigators and support staff work to uncover usage patterns, frequencies and specific sites that a particular subject, or group thereof, visited leading up to the time of the investigation.

Process Serving

Process serving is the action of delivering legal documents to a specific person who is to appear in court, reply to a court summons or otherwise engage in legal council.

Process serving usually involves a great deal more than simply popping a letter into an envelope and having it mailed to the people in question, frequently due to the fact that people receiving the documents don’t want to read them, let alone do as the documents request.

As such, it can be incredibly difficult, time-consuming and expensive for companies, government organisations and legal firms to track down recipients and ensure that they have, in fact, received and read the documents being sent to them.
