Is there a GPS Tracker on your Vehicle???

It's more common than you might think! There are many reasons why someone might place a GPS Tracking device on your vehicle. Divorces, Business Disputes, a Repo tool for Used Car Dealers and Stalkers! 

If you suspect that a GPS Tracking Device has been placed on your vehicle, we can assist you in Detecting, Locating and Removing the device. Detecting a GPS device is not easy because nearly all trackers go into standby mode once the object it is attached to stops moving. These GPS tracking units do this to conserve battery life.

Predators of the Mentally Ill

We recently handled a case for a client whose sister is a Paranoid Schizophrenic and suffers from Bi-Polar disease as well. She has battled this for nearly her entire adult life. There were periods of relative calm, but for the most part, her life has been extremely difficult.

Add to this the fact that her family is financially well off. When her father passed away, he left her a considerable sum of money and property. Her home was gifted to her. Several years later, when her mother passed away, another large sum of money became available.

What Is Marital Waste?

Many of our clients come to us for assistance during divorce proceedings. Although Florida is a “no-Fault” state with regard to adultery most of the time, one common by-product of infidelity is Marital Waste.
 
Marital Waste is defined in Florida Statutes as:“The intentional dissipation, waste, depletion, or destruction of marital assets after the filing of the petition or within 2 years prior to the filing of the petition.”
 
For the sake of clarity, “petition” referenced above refers to a filing of a Dissolution of Marriage Petition.

A Parent's Worst Fear...KIDNAPPED!

All parents go through it at some point. Innocently shopping with their child and suddenly they turn around and the child is gone. Your pulse quickens. You get that feeling in the pit of your stomach. You frantically race along the aisles searching desperately. Then you spot your child in the toy section…or on the candy aisle. You run to them…hug them…scold them.
Now imagine that feeling prolonged over a week long period. Then for two weeks. 

That is what a recent client went through. A father, we will call him John, came to us recently asking for help locating his 6 month old son.

A Recent Case

The interesting thing about being a Private Investigator is the fact that each day is different. There is rarely anything "routine" about our work.

Recently, we were contacted by a client out of state. She had not spoken to her brother in a couple of months and was unable to reach him via phone or email. She had called the local police department and they had gone by the brother's residence to do a well-being check, but did not get a response at the door.

Now, according to our client, it is not unusual for her brother to "disappear" from time to time.

Cloak and Dagger Games that some Clients Play

Yesterday, I received a call from a potential client. We will call him "John". When we spoke, "John" refused to provide his last name. He spoke in generalities and getting any information out of him was like pulling teeth. I was trying to determine exactly what his needs were to see if I could assist him or not, but he made the process quite a bit more difficult than it had to be. The conversation went like this:
 
John: "I might need the services of an investigator.

A little of this and a little of that!

Well, we are now fully into 2014 and we are busy here at Rick Raymond Investigations. Our caseload has been unusually high for the last few months. I am always humbled by our clients and the trust and confidence they place in this firm. A big THANK YOU to all of the law firms, companies and private clients that allow us the honor of assisting them with life's little problems.

We are finally settled into the new office. We just had to move as we outgrew our old office and needed the extra space.

Sometimes Life Just Punches you in the Stomach!

Let’s face it…if you need the services of a Private Investigator, you probably are having a rough go of things. People don’t call the P.I. when all is well. As a professional Private Investigator, I totally understand that when my phone rings, chances are good; I am going to hear a sad tale of possible infidelity, or that someone stole your grandma’s priceless earrings or that your teen daughter has runaway. It’s just the nature of our business. With that in mind, what Private Investigators really do is solve problems.

Can a Private Investigator Guarantee Results?

Recently, a client called and requested surveillance for a spousal infidelity matter in Daytona Beach. While speaking with the individual, he stated that he had spoken to another private investigator that had “guaranteed” results. Basically, the other investigator advised the client that they would “nail her cheating”. I told the client he should be wary of any investigator that “promises results”.
 
When a client hires us to look into any matter, we expend time and resources trying to get to the bottom of the situation.
