Blackmail and Sensitive Personal Investigations
Several years ago, Global Security Group, Inc. (GSG) was brought in to assist another investigative firm and a prominent attorney to thwart a blackmail scheme that had targeted one of the nation’s most prominent businessman. The blackmailer was in possession of damaging materials of a personal nature and had threatened to post the materials on the internet unless the victim made a multi-million dollar payment. The blackmailer was also very clever and knew that the victim had the resources available to hire investigators and lawyers. After the first demand for payment was made the blackmailer refused to speak on the phone. A meeting was arranged that was to be recorded and filmed. In a scene reminiscent from many movies, the blackmailer walked up to the victim and gave an alternate meeting location across town and directed that they meet there in ten minutes time or the materials would go public. Surveillance was able to re-group and obtain the evidence necessary to support criminal charges against the blackmailer. The material was recovered and the client’s reputation saved. And while GSG cannot always guarantee a successful outcome, we can guarantee our agents will perform in a similarly professional manner demonstrating the utmost discretion.
