Been a private eye for 10 years. The job's not for everyone. If you love odd hours sipping coffee in a dark parking lot waiting for something to happen you should definitely jump at this job immediately. I get hired by spouses, employers, insurance companies, and you name it as well. Oh...and I field a lot of very interesting phone calls that even the most seasoned defense attorneys would raise an eyebrow at.

How much do you charge, and do you work hourly or per-project? Do you charge extra if you dig up what a client was looking for?

Asked by ad over 7 years ago

I usually charge an hourly rate....but I have been known to charge a "flat rate". It usually depends on the case and how confident I feel I can get the client results. I won't say how much I charge, but I will say that it's within the industry standard. Usually, I break it down into 3 categories. Surveillance, bug sweeps and locating people. That's the "Big 3" in my line of work. It really depends on what kind of case you have that determines the hourly rate and/or "flat rate" for the case.

What do you think the biggest difference is between law enforcement and private investigator type work is?

I found a pic on a hookup site of who I believe to be my wife. The image is photoshopped, but I am 99% positive that it's her. She has a tattoo that was edited out with airbrush. I was able to bring out the outline of it. Is there a better way?

Tips for doing a pretext call? I’m the victim of an assault & I’ve been asked by the detective assigned to my case to do a pretext call to try to get the perpetrator to confess, or at least say something incriminating, since I know them personally.
