There are numerous reasons that a Private Person or Business Owner needs to do a business background Investigation. Examples would be you are looking to purchase a business from the owner and need an Investigator to conduct a Due Diligence and determine the value and assets or liabilities. Unfortunately business will inflate their worth and income when trying to sell. Or you maybe making a large purchase from a business you are unable to inspect the item in person or need to see what kind of history a business has. False reviews on line can be used to fool unsuspecting consumers. And far worse many businesses are online fronts and do not exist at all but have very convincing websites and phone centers to perpetuate their fraud. The Internet has created so many new ways to establish fake business fronts that it takes an Investigator to find the cracks in the front and find the parties involved in the scams. Santa Barbara Surveillance Company has cracked a number of high profile business fraud operators. These con artists love to use well know city locations for fraud, like Santa Barbara, Beverly Hills, La Jolla, Wilshire Blvd. in LA, Palm Beach Florida. They use affluent sounding locations but that doesn't mean that it is a legitimate business.
