Using Computers to Revolutionize
Your Work and
Maximize Your Profits

 by Bud Jillett

Whether you’re a veteran or aspiring private investigator, a successful career is no longer possible by relying solely on traditional investigative practices. Skillful use of desktop computers, specialized software and the Internet are the keys to success in the PI trade today. Private Investigation in the Computer Age introduces you to the latest computer tools and resources that will enable you to work more quickly and efficiently. The author seamlessly weaves “old school” and Computer Age tactics to help you handle everything from bread-and-butter missing persons and surveillance cases, to fast-changing fields like heir finding, to the entirely new area of computer monitoring and surveillance. Just some of the things you will learn from this book include how to:

squeeze clues from e-mail headers to help find a runaway child or identify a cyberstalker
recover deleted data in order to find incriminating evidence on a subject’s hard drive
unravel complicated money trails without ever leaving your desk
monitor everything a suspect types into his computer, even as he’s entering it
prepare impressive, airtight reports for clients and courtroom testimony

A computer-illiterate PI is a dinosaur. Before the pavement-pounding old-timer steps off the curb outside his office, his computer-savvy competitors will have already received via the Internet the same public data he’s off to fetch. So get this book, get with the program, and get those cases – and profits – now..
