Fortis IEP - Background InvestigationsIn today’s world we depend a lot on relationships. Whether business or personal, people aren’t always what they seem to be and that insincerity can cost you monetarily and emotionally.

Do not rely on the computerized “instant background checks” advertised on the internet. They are nothing more than programs searching through free public records and often include outdated and inaccurate information.

Dishonest people will stop at nothing to hide their treachery and corruptions, things that a computer can’t really tell you. You need accurate and specific information that will enable you to make the best decision possible.

FORTIS’ professional background investigations can provide your business with the insight to choose the best candidate to improve productivity and reduce losses giving you a competitive advantage. If you’re concerned about a future personal relationship, a confidential background check can provide peace of mind to move forward.


Fortis IEP - Infidelity InvestigationsKnowing that your loved one is not committed to your relationship can be devastating, but it doesn’t compare to the daily agony of suspicion. Going through their pockets and the trash looking for evidence, asking questions that probe into their activities for the day, catching a glimpse of e-mails or instant messages, straining to overhear phone conversations to gather information. It can consume you and is not good for your mental or physical health.

Infidelity, adultery, cheating, being unfaithful, having an affair, or whatever you care to call it, is likely to be one of the most painful and devastating things that can happen to you.

Unfortunately, if a person seriously suspects that their spouse is being unfaithful, more often than not, their suspicions are correct. For your peace of mind, you need to either confirm or disprove your suspicions and a professional and discreet private investigation is often the only way.

Investigators at FORTIS have experience conducting surveillance in terrorism, espionage and theft activity and will apply those skills and experience to your discreet investigation. Let FORTIS help you find the truth.

Fortis IEP - Caretaker InvestigationsEveryday the news is filled with reports of abuse, neglect, or exploitation involving an adult caregiver or child caregiver. All too often these types of crimes are not detected until the physical, emotional or psychological abuse is apparent. The elderly, child, or disabled individual lacks the ability to converse or convey what is happening and may be in fear for their life.

When an investigation is conducted, the results are often shocking! With a thorough investigation and the use of a technology, FORTIS can confirm the elderly patient or child is being properly cared for or document that abuse, neglect, or exploitation is occurring and present the findings to law enforcement and adult protective services.

  • Abuse is the intentional infliction of physical or mental harm by a caregiver and includes physical, emotional/psychological and sexual abuse.
  • Neglect is the failure by others to provide protection or necessities of life such as food, clothing or shelter.
  • Exploitation is the improper use of the money or resources of one person for the benefit of another.

If you are considering employing a caregiver for an elderly parent or child, we recommend contacting us to conduct a background investigation that includes record checks as well as interviews with colleagues, neighbors, and developed sources in order to get a well-rounded picture of the caregiver and prevent permanent emotional or physical damage to your loved one.


Fortis IEP - Insider Threat InvestigationsInsider threats are a more common issue than most people realize. The threat caused by an unscrupulous employee within your own company is often harder to detect and can cause extensive damage to your company in monetary losses as well as reputation. Because these employees know how your business operates, all to often, the damage is done before you are even aware that there is a problem.

Insider threats include the following;

  • Employee may be stealing product or funds for personal gain.
  • Employee may be stealing corporate information for a competitor.

That insider threat employee would be someone who has the motivation or need to commit the act, has rationalized that that it is okay to commit the act, and has the opportunity to commit the act. Their reasons can vary from needing money for drugs or gambling to wanting revenge for being wronged or punished by management. Some simply find it a thrilling experience.

If you suspect that an employee is threatening the security of your company, let FORTIS investigate that employee and provide you with the information you need to put your concerns to rest or to take steps to neutralize the threat.

Fortis IEP - Overseas InvestigationMany private investigators advertise that they can conduct investigations in a foreign country. Their claims are correct since anyone can travel overseas and ask questions, but how effective will they be? Fish out of water??

FORTIS investigators have lived in foreign countries throughout South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and East Asia where they have conducted investigations.

Overseas investigations are expensive. Don’t invest your money in a company with little or no experience overseas. FORTIS investigators have the contacts and know where to look for the answers you are seeking.
