Anonymous Internet Reviews

By |2019-01-25T06:18:37-07:00June 3rd, 2013|

Authored by Robert Mann of Worldwide Intelligence Network. Over the past few years we’ve been asked by numerous business owners if we could identify and investigate people who posted scathing anonymous internet reviews about their establishments.  The owners wanted to reach out to those reviewers to obtain more information and to make good on any poor experience that customer had. In today’s highly sophisticated age, it is nearly impossible to identify an anonymous email addresses especially those that pay to email through anonymous email websites. Those websites specialize in protecting the true identity of the person sending the email and only by filing a law suit and serving [...]

It seems incomprehensible at times when his firm receives requests from both men and women asking if we can locate and identify someone they met online. They are referring to people they met on online dating sites and they truly believe they are in love with that person even though they never met that individual in person. As it turns out. one of our female  clients was conned into sending her alleged lover a large amount of money and [...]

Executive Protection Agents & Body Guards

By |2019-01-25T06:18:37-07:00April 4th, 2013|

One of the most fulfilling and utterly devoted occupations in the world is that of a Bodyguard also known as an Personal Protection Specialist. A professional Body Guard’s job is to assume the  awesome responsibility of protecting someone’s life. A Personal Protection Specialist makes certain that all possible contingencies are investigated in advance so their client’s passage is safe and secure from possible threats. Many lay persons believe that a tall heavyset foreboding appearing man is enough to scare off a possible perpetrator, Unfortunately, that’s not realistic in the world we live in. A bullet brings down Mr. Big as does a explosive bomb vest and a thrown dagger. What [...]

How Do Workers’ Compensation Fraudulent Claims Affect You?

By |2019-01-25T06:18:38-07:00March 21st, 2013|

Billions of dollars in premiums are collected by insurance companies that provide Workers’ Compensation Insurance coverage to businesses and municipalities of all sizes. Premiums are predicated upon the risk within a specific category of work being performed.  As an example, a clerk would not be considered a high risk while a construction worker who works on high rise buildings would be a high risk.  In other words the more likely to be injured on the job the higher the premium.  However, that is not the problem within the Workers’ Compensation Insurance industry. The problem lies with fraud. The Beginning of Workers’ [...]

By |2019-01-25T06:18:38-07:00February 19th, 2013|

Worldwide Intelligence Network aka Robert Mann wincor, has been in business for 23 years. I have enjoyed a fabulous career as a Private Investigator and Personal Protection Specialist.  Sometimes I’m asked “what is it about your profession that you enjoy.” The answer is simple, although we contend with a significant amount of sadness and tragedy, fixing someone’s problem satisfactorily is very rewarding. Each and every case is a challenge and each and every case brings with it a new learning experience. What did we know about Counterfeiting in China or Internet Identity Theft, or Infidelity and Criminal Defense prior to becoming a Private Investigator, the answer; little [...]

The Runaway Child

By |2019-01-25T06:18:38-07:00January 7th, 2012|

Nothing pains us more than to receive a call from a frantic parent saying their child ran away. Such was the case with a young boy eleven years old in Northern California. The parents knew their son made friends and liked to hang around with a male adult who lived close to their home. How the boy met the man was unclear when we commenced the investigation but the parents were absolutely convinced the man was harboring their son. Some of you may not know that law enforcement has no legal right to inspect a home of a person who might allow [...]
