Pay for success only

  • Tell us what it’s worth to you

Like any other professional (e.g. lawyers etc.), private investigators will charge for any time spent on a case, regardless of the result. It has to be this way since we can’t guarantee the outcome of any case.

However, in some limited cases we’ll know pretty quickly whether we can solve it or not. In which case we’ll only charge you when we have the result (you set up a reward and we’ll claim it if successful).

More info on pay-for-success investigations.
