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 multi-million dollar blackmail attempt 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 acquiesced to the blackmailer's demand for millions in cash. The blackmailer was clever enough to know that the victim had the resources available to hire investigators and lawyers and 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 of 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. While GSG cannot guarantee the same, successful outcome that was achieved in that case, we can guarantee our agents will perform in a similarly professional manner demonstrating the utmost discretion.
