FAQs

1. How does TIN approach a situation in which funds have been stolen from a company?

Initially, TIN recommends a review of all relevant and/or questionable records, transactions, invoices, deposits, receipts, etc. in order to establish that monetary losses have in fact occurred. It is also prudent to conduct a comprehensive background investigation(s) of all suspected employee(s), managers, etc. in order to identify those who have historically demonstrated a propensity to conduct acts of theft, fraud, embezzlement, etc.

With client authorization, TIN may also initiate covert/mobile surveillance, undercover operations, non-financial assets and financial account searches and/or employee/manager interviews for purposes of identifying individuals responsible for and methodologies utilized which contributed to the company losses.

2. How much does a Corporate Investigation cost?
The costs for TIN to conduct a corporate investigation will vary from case to case and is contingent upon the industry, client objectives, monetary losses realized to date and the strategy and scope of the investigation.

A typical corporate fraud, theft and/or embezzlement investigation will range in costs from 5,000.00 to $ 50,000.00.

3. How long does it typically take to complete a Corporate Investigation?

Depending on the extent of the theft, fraud and/or embezzlement which have contributed to company losses, two (2) to four (4) weeks of research, investigation, surveillance, etc. is typically required by TIN to complete a corporate investigation.

Some corporate matters for investigation; however, may require more time (1 – 3 months) in order to properly address all case objectives and bring clarity and resolution to a client’s issue(s).

4. Can TIN identify a current owner(s), officer(s) and/or manager(s) of a particular company?

TIN has the resources and extensive experience in determining who the shareholders, officers/directors and/or key managers are in connection with a questionable entity. The names of owners and shareholders are sometimes not recorded in the business filings or corporate documents.

Although often difficult to obtain, this level of information is critical for a client to have when an issue has developed, or when ownership clarity is needed in order to properly bring an entity into litigation.
