  • The investigator who investigates your case must be registered with the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority as a Private Investigator performing the functions of a private investigator, otherwise he is not permitted by the law to give evidence in any court of law or even supply any written report as this is in contravention of the act. This legislation also makes it an offense to employ an unregistered person working as a Private Detective, meaning that the client can also be prosecuted. The company rendering investigation service must also be registered with the PSIRA as per statutory law.
  • There is a lot of "fake" Pi's who is not registered and who's only motive it is to solicit money from the public fraudulently and we receive complaints on a daily basis from the public. If you have been defrauded you may contact us as we will assist you with your complaint in order for PSIRA to investigate the case.
  • Never pay money upfront into any account for investigation services to be rendered as you will most likely be scammed by an online fraudster and if you are asked for upfront payment ask for the companies profile that must contain their PSIRA company registration document and the bank account should belong to a company and not a individual. Also ask for business references and the registered address of the company that can be verified.
