Insurance Fraud Specialists supplies the client with typed reports, including statements, declarations, and still photography attachments (with claimant close-ups for ID purposes) on all cases using Microsoft Word 2011 PDF Format.  Our investigation reports are paperless and e-mailed to the client to save mailing costs and to expedite service.  Clients can also choose from having hard copies mailed directly to them or placed onto a flash drive.  We charge $20 per typed report page excluding the cover and billing pages.  *Note clients with domestic related cases can substitute typed reports for verbal reports thus resulting in savings for the client.  We record the original HD (1920 X 1080) videoed evidence onto SSD (non moving hard drives) on an Atomos Shogun mobile monitor/recorder in a non- compressed format (this prevents lost frames and quality loss during recording).  We use the highest quality recording format, HQ Apple Pro-Res for capturing video evidence.  We also record video on smartphones via digiscoping method using UHD OR 4K (4,096 X 2,160). The video is stored on the phone's memory and can be transferred to the cloud, or streamed directly and or emailed to the client via Vimeo or Youtube. *Note we no longer record or copy our video evidence onto CD's standard DVD's or any type of analog video tapes since they are not capable of recording HD video.  We copy our videoed evidence onto Blu-Ray DVD's (single, double, triple and quad layered) depending on the size of the file-size recorded during the surveillance.  This will allow viewing of recorded evidence in its full HD quality in which the video was originally captured.  We charge $45 per Blu-Ray custom DVD or a custom credit card style USB drive for the client or designee.  *Note the client should have a Blu-Ray DVD player and a HD monitor to review the videoed evidence in its full 1080 quality. 

Equipment can be purchased from Insurance Fraud Specialists depending on the situation that best suits the client for each individual case that may include the elimination of actual physical surveillance as it pertains to the use of GPS devises.

We do not charge for initial consultations or telephonic updates to the client and their council.  Over-night delivery requests for videos will be charged directly to the client's FedEx or UPS accounts.  Domestic related and plaintiff attorney cases will require a retainer paid in advance before the start of a case.  All other invoices are due upon receipt.  We do accept cash, checks, money orders and PayPal accounts that accept all major credit and debit cards however we do not finance or extend any type of credit.

Is your current vendor using the most advanced technology the industry has to offer to assist you in your investigation? Most agencies will say they use state-of-the-art equipment but they actually use outdated technology. So don't be fooled, ask your vendor to give you examples of their equipment and then compare it to the best that's available in the industry.

Below are disguised surveillance vans appearing as ordinary service vans often seen in your neighborhoods. Surveillance vans deploying this technique allows an investigator to get close to a target when activity can only be seen up close and prevents nosy neighbors from becoming suspicious especially in school zones.

Photo A is the smallest tracker unit available on the market today and this agency can deploy it to assist in surveillance. We have been using GPS devices for the past fifteen years and have always kept up with evolving technology so that our clients get the best the industry has to offer. This unit can be used inside or outside a vehicle, carried in a backpack and is waterproof. This tracker has a built-in motion detector that gives the user text messages to any desired smart phone (up to three at any one time) when it is in motion and when it comes to a final stop. It can be monitored live 24/7 on your cellphone (with Internet access for Google mapping) or computer via the Internet. It will also record the duration of stops and starts with physical addresses. The unit can be contacted to get an immediate GPS location sent back to any desired cell phone.

Photo B is a IR (infrared) scope light that mounts on all of our surveillance cameras that are IR sensitive thus allowing video to be taken in complete darkness.
