A Factual or Circumstance investigation refers to the process of gathering information about the facts of a particular case, issue, or cause. Within Insurance investigations this type of work will include obtaining access to potentially relevant documents and/or interviewing and obtaining statement witnesses.

When a matter is referred to ABi a Factual or Circumstance investigation is to determine the facts surrounding a particular incident, injury or occurrence

Factual or Circumstance investigations (in particular Insurance or Workplace matters) are often arranged to:

  • assist in the determination or decision
  • examine negligence potential – Who was at fault.

Surveillance Investigation refers to the monitoring of subjects (people, place or vehicles) activities via physical observation and close watch. Surveillance is conducted in a covert manner in which the subjects are unaware they are being watched. The activities are documented with detailed reports, video, and pictures and is provided to our clients at the conclusion of the investigation.

Skip Tracing is the identification and location of individuals and/or witnesses that cannot be located. Skip tracing is performed in multiple stages and really depends on how much information is provided at the commencement of the referral:

ABi will commence to verifying the information/correspondence provided by the client to understand who the subject is. We will then commence to gather as much information as possible about the subject. The information is then analysed and verified. 

Records that are collected are very similar to our Desktop investigation which may include,

While some of these records may be publicly available, some cannot be accessed without an appropriate search warrant, which is generally only available to law enforcement or licensed private investigators, such as ABi.

Our pre-employment screening is designed to help management select the most suitable candidates, identify dishonest or unsuitable candidates, help create an honest company culture and support good corporate governance. Pre-Employment Screening can reduce risks of fraud, dishonesty and poor performance; not only through proactive candidate selection but also by acting as a deterrent to unsuitable applicants from applying.

Our pre-employment screening technique involve conducting background checks, research and interviews to confirm or refute the background of a prospective employee for a range of attributes including their education attainment, prior working experience, civil litigation history, other business interests and bankruptcy. Such checks are more thorough and detailed for senior level or sensitive positions. 

Background checking is a service we provide when our clients wish to confirm or refute information that an individual or company has said, written or provided to them. Often a client is dubious whether to believe the provided information but doesn’t have the ability or capacity to check for themselves.

Such background checks often entail the sourcing of information from third parties or else difficult to locate documents or records. The background searches generally relate to company or business registrations, property ownership [past and present], bankruptcy searches, confirmation of address, marriage situation and media searches. We conduct these background searches on a national basis and in some cases throughout the world (Asia, Europe, Americas etc).
