Embezzlement...It Can Happen to You

This was going to be a momentous year for business owner Billy Thompson. Bill had set up his own business and worked hard to establish and develop it into an effective operation. Bill provided his customers with a much needed service, and he had developed a list of customers that provided his business with a sound base of operations. Now he was set to grow his business, and he had only one problem. He could not be out in the world growing his business when he needed to run the day to day operations such as answering calls, coordinating customer requests and managing the accounts payable.

Spring Is the Time to Analyze


Spring has arrived. This is a season of rebirth for business as well as the earth. This is a time to analyze your path, assess what we you are doing to make certain you are on the correct course, and make any necessary course corrections. This is as true for Cadfael as it is for all.


Cadfael Investigative Group:


Many people who decide to become private investigators have served in a branch of the military or worked as police officers. Others have experience in crime scene investigation or surveillance. Some have worked for three or more years for an established private investigator. While this experience is helpful, it does not compare to the thirty years of experience and training our investigators spent mastering the art of investigation. All Cadfael investigators:

  • Have decades of experience in the practice of the art of investigation
  • Can plan and coordinate investigations
  • Are well versed in investigative and surveillance techniques
  • Know the laws and ethics pertaining to investigative practice
  • Are experienced in the practice of interviews and interrogations
  • Know the procedures of handling evidence
  • Have access to law enforcement agencies and the courts

This is our investigative base.

Fraud Tip

"When you find a problem the first one to call is an experienced private investigator.  He or she can document needed evidence and identify witnesses before the evidence is contaminated or witness memories fade and video recordings are taped over.  A good investigator will help you select an effective attorney that can help you extricate yourself from the challenges you are facing."



If you suspect fraud or are troubled by an offer, call us with the information. We can help you identify if it is a fraud. Remember, if something appears too good to be true, it usually is.
