I have never had to use or hire one but wonder if anybody else has and why? Did you get the answers that you were looking for? Were you happy with their efforts?

I have never hired a private investigator but my cousin is one. She says she keeps rather busy. Someone is always wanting to know what their spouse is doing with their spare time. She also has alot of cases of divorced parents wanting to find dirt on the other parent to gain custody of a child. Shs never seems to have much free time so there must be a big demand for her skills.

That is very interesting to know. I have always wondered what kind of things investigators do other than see if people are cheating on their spouses. Does she like her job?

She loves it. She said she hardly has any free time though. She has to schedule a vacation time and stick to it when she wants to be with family.

No I haven't tried it. But I am going to soon. I am currently building my filipina website and I am thinking to have a free background check for my filipina visitors on their bfs/fiancee from the USA. I will use the unlimited background check online.

Congratulations and good luck with your website and hope everything goes well for you. That is a good idea to have background checks done on people from the US or anywhere else for that matter.

No, I have not used one. But, listen to this. I had an ex boy friend hire a private investigator to find me...he never did. But after 40 years, we did find eachother on Classmates. Isn't that funny?

That is very funny. Why did he hire a private investigator to find you? Was he trying to get back together with you? That is an amazing story. :-) I found someone that I grew up with on classmates as well and keep in touch with her, though she is married.

I've never hired a private investigator before. But that's only because I've fortunately never had any reason to hire one. Coincidentally though, I'm thinking of becoming one myself. I want to become a cop, but I don't think I'm in good enough shape just yet to be able to become one, so until I feel I'm ready, I want to work as a P.I. Then maybe I'll do P.I. stuff on the side.
