Custard’s Online Investigative Services Division was created to provide our offices and clients with the tools to detect and counter fraud. While we are not private investigators, we do some of the work which has historically been done by PI’s. The services of the division are intended to help fill the holes in your investigation through our expertise in locating people, determining asset information, business affiliations, driving records and criminal records, starting with as little as a name and an old address.
The Division is always renewing itself, as new data and data sources become available for our use. Our strength is in our ability to interpret this data along with the knowledge of additional sources available to validate or negate anything that may appear out of kilter or suspicious.
The Basic Search
Online Investigative Services will conduct a basic search which includes the following information. In the event no results are revealed from the basic search the client will not incur a charge.
- Skip trace
- Asset checks
- License plate & VIN search
- Fictitious name search
- SSN and DOB verification
- Criminal and civil court searches
- DMV operator and vehicle history
- Liens and judgments
- Address history
- Phone numbers
Most often this basic search reveals the necessary information to complete the investigation and nothing further needs to be done.
More Extensive Search
A more extensive search can be performed upon the request of the client if the basic search does not uncover all of the information necessary to satisfy the requirements of the claims investigation. This search includes the following information.
- Arrest Records
- Title history
- Birth/Death certificates
- Autopsy reports
- Civil and criminal filings
- Vehicle ownership information
- Prior accidents for vehicle (including tractor trailer units)
- Carfax reports
- Dun and Bradstreet reports including business credit
Our objective is to “fill in the gaps” by providing our customer with the valuable information necessary to complete a successful claims investigation. It is our goal to offer our customer the most efficient and cost effective solution to their investigation while providing consistent superior customer service.
