Undercover Investigator

Develop a pretext for hard-to-get information.

Going undercover is an artful way to gather intelligence that can’t be obtained from searching records or conducting a surveillance.

An undercover investigation involves making direct contact with subjects and situations under a pretext, and works well for competitive intelligence investigations, fraud detection or asset searches.

For example, by posing as a customer, I can find out why a business may be losing orders or getting a lot of bad reviews, or what a more successful competitor is doing that they aren't.

Aside from competitive intelligence, undercover pretexts can also be used in fraud investigations and to assist in debt collection efforts.
