Choosing a Philippines Background Check Service

Due to the high risk for fraud and scams in the Philippines, Philippines private detectives and Philippine background checks remain in high demand. Finding a competent and credible private investigator in the Philippines, however, is no easy task. Many are untrained locals who lack professional investigation experience. Finding a real professional truly makes all the difference.

In most cases, clients are best off going with a U.S. or Europe based investigation agency, rather than choosing a local Philippine based investigation company or investigator. With a U.S. or Europe based company, clients often receive higher levels of customer service, and the companies themselves are more accountable and transparent, on average. While a Philippines based investigator may offer lower prices, often it means money down the drain. Uncovering evidence requires expertise.

Now the largest professional Philippines private investigator, Philippine PI™ is based in the United States but maintains a team of over 12 full time field investigators in the Philippines, and the firm has established relationships with various Embassies, the NSO (National Statistics Office), the NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) and Manila and Cebu police agences. The firm maintains one of the highest rates of client satisfaction in the industry, and offers full service and discreet private investigation, background checks, due diligence, surveillance, infidelity and pre-marital checks, missing persons, as well as criminal and corporate fraud investigations. Each of their investigators is professionally trained, with experience in law enforcement or military.

When shopping for a private investigator or Philippines background check company, be sure to ask the following key questions. Does the company list its company address and phone number on its Contact Us page? Does the company and website display professional affiliation seals, such as Truste, McAfee or the Better Business Bureau? Does the company website utilize secure connections (SSL) so that your communication is secure? (You should see a lock on your browser). Does the company offer a secure payment method via its own secure website? Does the site display a Privacy Policy? If the answer to any of these questions is no, keep shopping! After all, you get what you pay for.

Best of luck,
