Due to Australian privacy laws, surveillance is quite often the only way to gain answers in investigations. We have specialists in mobile, foot and static surveillance. All operatives have access to the latest in cameras and other technologies necessary for the best result – but more importantly, the experience and training to get the job done. Remember, a picture says a thousand words……..
Fraud is rampant across the world. Fraud is diverse and can take place at any level of society or any level of an organisation. Typically, investigations are related to internal and external fraud. Internal fraud primarily deals with employee related fraud, whereas external fraud presents itself via channels outside of the business. The apparent link between the two seems to be the existence of circumstances which makes fraud attractive to a particular organisation or circumstance. If you are a victim of fraud, or wish to prevent fraud from happening in the first place, Corporate Investigations can help.
Insurance & Workers Compensation Investigations
All types of surveillance and factual investigations including scrutiny into false claims, Compulsory Third Party investigations, motor accident, arson and liability based inquiries. This is by far the largest area of investigation in Australia.
Often we find that an insurer may not be meeting your expectations in following up on a suspected false claim and the claimant isn’t being investigated because they don’t fit the criteria of the insurer. However, you as the employer know much more about the claimant than the insurer. Contact Corporate Investigations at to discuss your situation and we can formulate a plan into gaining sufficient evidence to get the claimant back to work or out of the company altogether.
