Believe it or not, the holidays are one of the most popular times to hire a private detective. Private detectives get all kinds of calls and inquiries, just in time for Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Christmas, ranging from personal requests to large corporate investigations. Here are two of the most popular reasons to get some help from private investigators and detectives this time of year.
More Spouses Suspect Infidelity During The Holidays
Whether it’s all of the holiday cheer, the hustle and bustle of the holidays, or the many holiday parties, Christmas is one of the most popular times of year to be unfaithful (topped only by Valentine’s Day). And more Americans hire a private detective to trail boyfriends, girlfriends, partners, or spouses to find out what’s really going on. Is your husband really working extra hours to save up for Christmas presents? Is your wife really not going to her Christmas party, or is she taking someone else? Private investigators can get you concrete answers, so you can make educated decisions about your romantic relationships.
Businesses Need To Do Whatever They Can To Protect Their Customers
Although private detectives are more than capable of tailing potentially cheating spouses or romantic partners and many do, the 45,000+ detectives in the U.S. are capable of much more, too. In fact, investigators can find out nearly anything about any individual, or even groups of people. Large corporations, for example, may hire a private detective after a serious security breach — or after customers’ personal and/or payment information has been stolen. Investigators can help assess systems, find vulnerable areas, and help companies fix them, so it doesn’t happen again. For instance, Target may have used a team of detectives to find out exactly how customers’ credit card information was stolen to fix it for future sales and transactions.
Why are detectives especially busy during Thanksgiving and Christmas? Spouses and partners are more likely to cheat during the holidays, and retailers and other large businesses need to make certain their systems are secure for Christmas shopping and sales.
