“O what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!”
-Sir Walter Scott
Trust: a lifetime to build, seconds to lose. Whom should you trust? Sometimes, the only way to find out is to dig below the surface, strip away appearances and reveal reality. That’s what we’ve been doing here at American Eagle Investigations since 1968 – and we’re very, very good at it.
If this is your first time hiring a private investigation agency, let us put your mind at ease and answer a few common questions for you.
We like to think the best of people. It would be nice to believe that friends, family, loved ones and co-workers all had our best interests at heart. Imagine a world where dishonesty, fraud, infidelity, crime, and corruption didn’t exist.
In reality, there are times when you may face unpleasant situations. For instance, a test of trust; you notice suspicious behavior at home, work, in a neighborhood. People go missing.
You may experience feelings of fear and anxiety as a result. It can feel like you’ve lost control over your environment. Loss, betrayal and uncertainty can do that to a person.
Situations like this call for expert advice and the help of experienced professionals. Moreover, this is where a nearby private investigation service can help. The right investigator can provide evidence; do background checks; find criminal records; allay your doubts and help you regain control over your life.
