The human mind loves to form preconceived notions about anything it comes across. Almost everything you search on Google nowadays has myths attached to them. Popular beliefs related to things, professions, and processes that are not always true, get considerable limelight when people start learning about them – yes, even private investigators are usually subjected to these misunderstandings. We list down a few for you.

Myth: Private investigators can access ALL the information not available to the public.

Private investigators usually have connections with the officials in the law enforcements which help them obtain information from national databases that are not generally available to the masses. This helps them collect proof, and data that may prove useful to your cause. However, they cannot access or analyze confidential data and documents from organizations such as the FBI, CIA, and other secret intelligence forces.

Myth: All private investigators drive fancy cars

All spies and detectives in movies drive uber chic cars, but then not all investigators and spies are James Bond and, well, this is not a movie! Most private investigators have an ordinary lifestyle that is miles away from the glitz and glamour portrayed in the movies. Also, since fancy cars attract attention, it could possibly be a hurdle in the private investigator’s job. It makes them more noticeable.

Myth: Private investigators can gain access to private bank accounts.

A private investigator cannot access protected bank accounts. They need to have written consents of the account holders to get the information related to the bank accounts in question.

Myth: Private investigators take a long time to compile detailed background reports

Private investigators are experts in gathering valuable information that otherwise may take you months to find out. It’s what they do! Given that they have all the connections in the right places to get their work done is an added benefit. What sets them apart is that they not only get the job done right; they also get it done fast. Private investigators are usually quick and apt in yielding results.

Myth: Private investigators ALWAYS listen to private communication on telephones.

Yes we’ve seen it all happening in the movies all the time, and it does happen in real life, too. However, in some states, private investigators are prohibited by law to listen to private telephone conversations, or bug telephones of the intended person. You don’t need to worry though, because they always figure out alternate ways of getting the desired information.

Regardless of the misconceptions that people have about them, private investigation companies are gaining widespread popularity for their investigative solutions.
