Visa Wants to Track Your Smartphone

So does the headline creep you out? Before you get too worried you should know the whole story. Visa wants to track your smartphone so that when your Visa labeled credit or debit card is used, they can more accurately determine if you are actually using it, or if you are a victim of fraud. Sound any better now? Banks and credit card issuers how a lot of time, money and technology invested in trying to prevent credit card fraud. This type of fraud cost banks $11 billion each year!

What Do Private Investigators Really Do?

One of the questions I get asked a lot from people who are not familiar with my business is about exactly what do we do.

Regardless of the situation, if we can help people we feel like we have done good work.   During 2014 we reloaded our offices from Dallas to Las Colinas in Irving.

Merry Christmas

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” As a child, when I heard Andy Williams singing the first line of that wonderful song on my parents’ stereo, I knew the Holiday Season was starting, and that meant weeks or fun, decorations, and anticipation. Time spent at my grandparents’ house, seeing extended family… I truly loved every minute of it. Merry Christmas wasn’t a toss away phrase; it was a heartfelt expression of both what I felt and what I wished for others to have.
