As narrated above, there are many a Detective Agencies and agents having fancy names and websites but no experience or capabilities to undertake this very risky but challenging and noble profession and they vanish into thin air after taking small amounts from many people. Thus, besides other parameters we advice you to at least find out the background, business standing, affiliated associations and since how long the Agency has been into business.
Secondly, and ironically we must bring to your notice that none of the websites you have already seen give a quote of their professional charges. Moreover, during the course or before giving reports they come out with many hidden charges. Sadly, not satisfied with what they have extracted from you, many cases of blackmailing & extortion have been reported and thus we advice you to be very careful in selecting an Agency. Our charges and explanations shows our transparency and honesty which you will appreciate.
The Charges on executing a case primarily depend on the quality and number of manpower, resources and equipment required to execution of the assignment and most importantly the time required on the assignment. There is generally no thumb rule charges towards an assignment as these vary from case to case, most importantly the charges depend on the geographical, political, religious, expense and risk related factors. Moreover, the longer the period of assignment, the less the charges, the shorter the period of assignment, the higher the charges, i.e. if the charges for Investigation & shadowingshadowingfor 7 days is USD 700 per day, the same will reduce to USD 600 per day if the same is for more than 15 daysand will reduce to USD 500 if it is to be done for more than 30 days. Short Assignments result in under deployment of the agents and thus loses to the Agency and thus if the Assignment is for 5 days it cost USD 700 per day and for 5 days, it cost USD 900 per day and USD 1100 for Assignments of 2 to 3 days USD 1400 for one single day.
