Can you “look” into Bank Accounts?

We are asked this a lot. The simple answer is, yes, under certain conditions. However, Private Investigators cannot “look” into bank accounts within Canada, simply because they feel like it, and this would be considered sourcing.

Can you record conversations?

Yes, under certain conditions. Otherwise this falls under Eavesdropping. An old law, but nonetheless, a law. In fact no one can just do this as they see fit. In this day and age, with all the recordings taking place. Everyone who records video is breaking the law while capturing conversations. Be cautious! There are specific conditions to allow this.

Can you "look" into someone's social media?

Yes, everything put on the world wide web is considered public domain, under certain conditions. Copyright material is different in the sense, it is on the web, although you cannot copy and use it.

 

If it is on the web it is considered blatantly put into public domain. If a licenced PI wants the information, that is in public domain, we can get it.

 

However, we cannot “hack”. We do not “hack” social media accounts. If you ask us this we can no longer have a conversation, that is just the reality.
