like thoseon tv

In real life a private investigator is nothing like their TV counterparts. For the most part they are average looking people, who are dedicated to performing their jobs within the confines of law. In fact, they need to be more law abiding than the average citizen because they are more likely to be sued prosecuted if they break the law or put someone at risk.

A private detective's work life is anything but glamorous. While it can be interesting and helping people who need their help is rewarding it is often boring work since most detectives jobs require them to read through and endless number of documents, write reports on each and every case they work on and spend countless hours sitting in a car in all sorts of weather as well as spending time testifying in court, and talking with all sorts of different people from all walks of life.

business fraud cases
If you run a business and suspect one of your employees of business fraud a private detective will conduct surveillance and document such actives as secret meetings with competitors, passing plans to the competition and other evidence so the business owner can take the employee to court or be reassured that no business fraud is taking place.
This increases the risk of you dating someone who may have a criminal record and may even be dangerous. Sometimes after a few dates people begin seeing behaviors that make them uncomfortable so they may want to have a background check run to see if it is safe to stop seeing that person, or if they may need help to get out of the situation.

Insurance Fraud or Worker's Comp Fraud

Many people claim to be seriously injured in car accident, slip and fall or a work accident and sue the insurance companies of the other driver, business or home owner or

workplace insurance for huge money settlements due to their claimed disability. A
private investigator works for the insurance company investigating the “injured” who is
too injured to work, but, yet goes surfacing, or spends hours playing basketball with
friends or engaging in other physical activities that prove their injury was non-existent or
less severe than they claim.
