An overseas financier was brokering a deal in which substantial seed money was required upfront by one of the parties.  Comprehensive due diligence checks on the party revealed that fraudsters had ‘sock puppetted’ the identity of a high-profile UK businessman, setting up fake web pages and contact details using genuine UK business and personal details.

A foreign businessman had rented out his high value apartment in central London and became suspicious when his estate agent was being evasive.  Investigations revealed the current tenants not to be those purported in the lease.  Operative and electronic surveillance also proved that the flat was being used for immoral earnings and working in partnership with lawyers, the lease was revoked and possession reinstated.

A logistics firm was being sued for £200,000 for wrongful dismissal by a foreign driver. Our field and digital investigations discovered false documentation and information had been used to give the impression of UK residence and Right to Work in the UK and the case was quashed.
