Background Investigation – Background Check

Not all lemons are the same

Not all lemons are the same – Do a proper background check.

When we at AR INTELL are requested to do a background check into somebody, then typically these 4 type of questions come to mind:

  • What to look for in a professional background investigation by a Private Investigator?
  • When do you need to conduct a background investigation for an employee?
  • When is a background investigation related to a criminal case?
  • Is it better to do your own background investigation or hire a third party for a background check?

The answer to these questions depends on the person requesting the investigation and on what type of investigation…

So what does a background check consist of searching for information that :

  • reduces the chances of hiring the wrong person for a certain job in a company or organization.
  • points to indications, history of potential dishonest immoral or dangerous behavior or attitude.

Asset Tracing – Investigation – Legal Process

asset tracing

The AR INTELL asset tracing is the process by our investigators whereby we focus on following the money trail.  Our Investigators trace assets by:

  • conducting financial investigations
  • inventory of the person’s assets
  • detailed examination of income related to criminal activity
  • follow the money trail
  • point to red flags in private and in public corruption cases.
  • provide valuable evidence to prove a specific crime
  • talk to informants and undercover officers
  • identify trial witnesses – verify the witness testimony
  • find leads and new targets for the investigation leading to additional targets
  • identify the assets connected to the crime (asset forfeiture)
  • in depth financial investigation

AR INTELL will conduct the legal process of Asset tracing (asset tracking) to locate valuable assets owned by individual or company. Especially when there is a complaint that these assets have been misappropriated. Many times fraud or theft was reported whereby somebody lost their property.  Fraudulent scams, money embezzlement or simply theft of property are the main reasons to start an asset tracing investigation. If the asset tracking is done properly; then it will allow you recover the lost assets or take legal action.
