Everybody Loves Moving, Right?

Whether it is your house, your apartment, or your office, we all know that everybody loves moving, right?!? No! Moving is painful, time consuming, and exhausting. That is exactly what we at Owens Investigations have been dealing with during the past few weeks. We had to move our offices. Here in the Dallas area, and much of Texas for that matter, April and May brought a level of rain that we haven’t seen in decades. That was a wonderful thing in terms of helping to mitigate the drought that much of Texas has been dealing with for several years. We also enjoyed some wonderfully mild...

Father’s Day 2015

Father’s Day. It’s an interesting holiday. On the surface, one might be fooled into thinking it’s on par with Mother’s Day. But any of us who have had a mother, been married to a mother, or been a mother know that isn’t true (if you are keeping score, that’s pretty much everyone). Forbes ran a story a couple of years ago comparing spending for moms vs for dads (hint: mom won). Even the way we celebrate moms v dads tends to be different. Maybe the kids bring mom breakfast in bed, or the family goes to brunch or lunch at a nice restaurant. On Father’s Day, dad can be found manning the grill...

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! The idea behind this premise is that if your cell phone is in the same location as the credit card when it is...

Each year, the folks at PInow.com put together a list of the top Private Investigators on Twitter for the past year. They consider investigators from all over the globe, analyzing their content, consistency, nominations,  scores on social media websites like Klout and RetweetRank, and more. At the end of 2013, our first year on social media, we were proud to have broken into the Top 20 on their annual list of Top Investigators on Twitter. This year, for 2014, we made the Top 10! We are very excited to announce that we came in at Number 8 on their list of the Top 100 Investigators on Twitter...

Merry Christmas

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. This Christmas, I get to spend time with people who are so important to me....

Don’t Be a Victim During the Holidays

I love this time of the year. For me, the Christmas season IS “the most wonderful time of the year,” filled with fun, family and happy memories. However, with the holiday season upon us, we also need to remember that this is a high crime time of the year. Fortunately, you can do things to protect yourself; easy precautions that can help greatly reduce your chance of becoming a victim during the holidays. While I have always preached “situational awareness” it has never been as important as it is in today’s society. Go outside to a busy sidewalk and watch people...
