Private Detective

Private Detective


10 Years Experience

Anaheim, CA

Male, 40

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.

So what's your hourly rate, and is it roughly in line with other PIs?

Asked by ad almost 9 years ago

My hourly rate is within the industry rate. The hourly and/or flat rate tends to depend on the type of case, ie: bug sweep, surveillance, subpoena service. In my experience, the average rate is between $50 to $125 per hour. If the PI offers services in an area where there are not many PIs, they may charge more. Lie detector rate is a bit different, usually $350 per person w/ an average of 8 to 12 lie detector questions asked.

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?

Have you ever had a "eureka" moment where you make some connection or crack a case in the middle of the night or doing something unrelated??

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.
