Just recently we had a little bit
of trouble with one of our associates regarding information that was stored in an archive and somewhat private. To this date, we have never had anything related to this issue. In fact, I don’t think we’ve ever been prevented from seeking information for somebody. Had I thought that this would happen, I wouldn’t assume it happened like this. It’s been years since we’ve had any complications when obtaining a public record, I’m beyond baffled that we’d encounter something as difficult as this.
Several weeks ago, we sent out one of our private investigators to Liverpool to further obtain information on a lead we had dug up for a case which was recently opened by a good friend of mine. It wasn’t the first time he had opened up a case with us, as we had done some digging into his wives past, as she wanted to know more information about her great Grandmother. Seeing the accurate information we had provided his wife, he decided that it’d be a great investment to further investigate his family ties as well. Believe it or not, a large majority of the business that we obtain is purely from referrals and word of mouth. Although we do gain a lot of customers from the web, we definitely thrive off of the referrals we obtain.
As our private investigator began digging deeper into this case, he began to realize how absolutely difficult it would be to obtain information purely from his own unique investigation tactics. The only other way he could obtain any more information is if he were to contact governmental public record facilities, which tends to be our last resort option when we’re in a crunch to find more information. However, this seemed as if it would be the best tactic to use, whether or not they’d have enough viable information to provide or not. In rare cases, a lot of files are empty or relatively unrecognizable, which is why we don’t normally go down this route of investigation.
However our private investigator did. What he did not know, however, is that whatever information he was attempting to dig up was so classified that even somebody with respectable credentials probably wouldn’t have a chance to obtain these files. They were not only restricted to civilians and police, but they were also restricted to those in higher level positions. Even the person whom had been serving our private investigator at this specific archive location was stunned that these were so heavily restricted. In all the years she had claimed to work at this establishment, she had never come across a file being so heavily restricted before. Which can seriously beg the question of “why”. More so, the real question lied in the hands of the client himself.
Who in the world was he related to?
In all the years that we’ve been in this practice and all the years we’ve gone through case files.Never have we personally come across this instance. In fact, I don’t think we’ll ever come across it again, as this was a very rare but somewhat interesting experience.
Who knows? Maybe we might, but I don’t think it’ll be anytime soon.
