They weren't expecting these gigs!
We all get a little suspicious from time to time, whether we feel like our partner is cheating, our co-worker is faking an injury, or an ex is following you around. It may not be the case, but you are tempted to pay a private investigator to find out the truth. The people who seek out the services of a trusted private eye may not have the most reasonable of suspicions however, and we wanted to highlight a few of those lesser-known stories.
“I’m a private fire investigator. I’ve seen some people do some weird stuff but one of the strangest was the guy who was convinced that the church next door set his house on fire.
He told us about how they came over and prayed on his car that it would break down, then it did. Then they came over and prayed that his house would burn down, and it did.
Turns out the ‘church’ next door is kind of a cult. And by kind of, I mean really a cult. But they didn’t burn the house. The tenant’s crazy ex boyfriend did. Thought I was going to get to interview cult members for awhile though.” (fireinvestigator113)
“Did surveillance on a nurse. She was supposedly so disabled that she couldn’t work. They suspected she was working. Easiest surveillance I ever did. I arrived. She got in her car 10 minutes later. Followed her, with no complication, to a strip club where she went in and began doing her thing.
Club had a posted prohibition on video. So I had to go in and watch her dance so that I could testify that I saw her dancing when it went to court. Over the next few days I followed her to three other strip clubs and did the same.
That month I turned in the sketchiest expense report of my life.
Eventually it went before the WC Board. When the judge asked why she was stripping she just shrugged and said she made twice as much money than when she was nursing.” (VenBede)
Just a Little Blind
“Was hired to follow a woman who claimed she was completely blind (collecting insurance money of course). Spent the day following her around as she DROVE from store to store in a church van.” (trackerjakker)
