Why we need to perform asset tracing?

The most common fraud we come across is the investment fraud. Usually we see a manager that spends a lot of money, money they obviously don't have. This is something that a good private investigator will be able to spot immediately and take actions. The private detective will create a course of action and make plan how to catch the manager in the act by tracing assets. In most cases, a due diligence investigation will also be carried out in order to obtain all relevant information.

The location of assets can also cover the activities of some of the company's employees. These employees are usually engaged in suspicious activities and are most likely spending funds that do not belong to them. To get to the bottom of this problem, the company needs to perform internal corporate investigation and identify the scammer.

Apart from business cases, an asset trace can also be done at the request of individuals going through a nasty divorce. In many cases the wife is not aware of the property that the husband has so she needs the help of a private investigator to get the half that belongs to her.

These are just a few examples when asset tracing is carried out and in which cases people are advised to ask for professional help.
