FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much does a private detective cost?2022-08-17T23:47:33+00:00

Rates may vary from one case to another. Costs will depend mostly on the complexity of the case, the level of expertise and sophistication of tools used; but also it will depend on the number of hours that will be devoted, the distances that will be travelled, and the expenses that might be encountered in the process.

Generally speaking, private investigator costs across the globe can range between $55 and $375 dollars an hour (either in CAD, USD, EUR or GBP). Different services cost differently, and also vary from country to country, province to province and state to state, and even city to city. Moreover, costs also vary between agencies, and while one agency may charge $55/h, another agency in the same city may charge $125/h for the same service.

At MADPI GLOBAL, our rates are fair, competitive, and correspond to the capabilities of our investigators and resources. We recommend contacting us with details of your case, and we’ll estimate it for you free of charge.

How long does an investigation case usually take to resolve?2022-08-06T20:55:09+00:00

Depending on the complexity of the case, it could be as quick as a few hours or as long as a few months. But generally speaking, we start cases as soon as we possibly can and strive to complete each case within estimated time frame, efficiently and diligently.

Nevertheless, at MADPI GLOBAL, we are never too hasty to compromise the quality of the results but are never too slow to get it in time for our client’s specific arrangements.

What educational backgrounds do the detectives working on my case have?2022-08-17T23:40:31+00:00

Team members at MADPI GLOBAL come from various backgrounds. We employ ex-law enforcement and intelligence officers from various federal, provincial and municipal departments across the country.

Can private detectives guarantee results?2022-08-17T23:38:45+00:00

Yes, under certain conditions and depending on a case. For example, we cannot guarantee that certain information will be present in a certain database or that on a certain date and time the subject of our investigation will come out of the house.

However, we can guarantee that if we obtain information from a database, we will make sure it’s reliable and current; or if the subject eventually comes out of the house, we will make sure to obtain video evidence and will comprehensively describe it in our report.

Investigation is like fishing, it requires patience and being at the right place at the right time with the right set of tools. That is why at MADPI GLOBAL we come well equipped and prepared, and whether we guarantee anything or not, we do our utmost best to deliver the greatest results to our clients.

Many firms offer surveillance (shadowing, following, etc.), why should we choose you to work on our case?2022-08-17T23:32:46+00:00

Surveillance is an art. To excel at surveillance, having basic skills and years of experience isn’t enough. Even with the full command of the will, the discipline, the attentiveness, the patience, the nimbleness, true art of surveillance is the privilege of a few. Transcending all the little intricacies, having that individual delicate capacity, that six sense, is what elevates those skills and experience to the next level of excellence.

At MADPI GLOBAL we own the above-mentioned faculties and surpass the thresholds of potential. In other words, we have what it takes, and then some. We excel at mobile, foot, and static surveillance, as well as counter surveillance measures. We are equipped to handle almost any off-road environment, harsh weather conditions, recreational activities, and more. When necessary, we can also provide remote, aerial, nautical / underwater, snowmobile, and motorcycle surveillance. We can design and integrate bespoke video / audio / GPS systems to acquire date and time stamped evidence.

Contact MADPI GLOBAL to discuss your surveillance needs free of charge; we’ll analyse your situation and provide you with a comprehensive confidential quote.

What is a due diligence search and how can it help my company?2022-08-17T23:31:57+00:00

In a nutshell, a due diligence search is an investigation of a business or a person before signing a contract or entering a certain business relationship during mergers and acquisitions, supply chain continuity and integrity, to comply with sanctions, anti-money laundering (AML), anti-bribery, and corruption (ABC) laws. The purpose behind a due diligence search is to gain invaluable intelligence in order make better informed decisions, secure assets and interests, and prevent or minimize risks.

Enhanced due diligence search is the next level up, where a company or a person pose a greater-than-normal risk and helps the client gain a more in-depth understanding with whom they will be dealing. Besides the above mentioned traditional financial checks, this search will also include customers, third-party suppliers, and business partners verifying third-party risks across PESTLE (political, economic, sociocultural, technological, legal and environmental) categories in order to elevate client’s confidence and better protect their interests.

We typically access various databases, both government and private, conduct in-depth open-source intelligence (OSINT) gathering, use covert tactics, and engage other investigative means to assist this type of investigation. We obtain corporate record data (details of company ownership, directorships, and shareholdings); legal and financial profiles, court records, regulatory and licensing checks, solvency and credit profiles; cyber profile analysis, multilingual online media and social media research; reputation analysis based on intelligence collection; background checks on principals, including residence and property ownership checks, employment and educational verification, lobbying activities, politically exposed persons, organized crime affiliations, assessment of net worth, and more; screen vendors, suppliers, customers, and other third parties; ethics and corporate social responsibility checks; local market reputation through review of media sources; financial crime investigations (embezzlement, fraud, money laundering or other fiscal irregularities); confirm physical presence of registered offices, branches and subsidiaries.

Contact MADPI GLOBAL for a comprehensive confidential consultation to discuss your case.

What is an asset search and who can benefit from it?2022-08-06T22:11:41+00:00

An asset search can provide information about hidden or undisclosed bank accounts, real estate investments, movable property such as vehicles and boats, both inside the country and offshore.

MADPI GLOBAL can search assets in Canada and in almost any country around the world. We can search individual bank accounts, corporate bank accounts, private bank accounts, mortgages, investments, brokerage firms, trusts, etc. We go through government, open-source, and private databases, banks, registries and utilize the latest methods and industry tools.

Any individual, any law firm, and any corporate entity can benefit from a well conducted asset search. Whether it’s an upcoming business transaction, due diligence investigation, defaulted client, litigation process, or matrimonial situation, we will go deep to uncover what is hidden or what is owned by a corporation or a private person.

How a private detective agency can help in a case of High-Risk Employee Termination?2022-08-10T23:53:21+00:00

Firing an employee that exhibited violent, harassing or intimidating behaviour in the workplace is never an easy undertaking. If handled without care, things can escalate quickly, and the employee may potentially become more violent or aggressive causing damage to other employees or property, which may in turn result in injuries, increased liability, and lengthy court proceedings.

MADPI GLOBAL can ensure that termination will be handled with highest regard for everyone’s safety, and will minimize any harm to persons, or damage to your reputation and property. We employ various methods and procedures to de-escalate and mitigate any dire circumstances. We use psychological and human kinetic techniques, provide experienced plain-clothes security during the session, escort the employee courteously and efficiently out of the building, and also provide post-termination risk mitigation assistance (which varies from case to case).

For more information, contact us in advance of the scheduled high-risk termination, and we’ll discuss it in more detail with you in full confidence and without any obligations.
