Ron Maynard is an excellent private investigator. He arrived promptly for our appointment and he carefully listened to what I wanted him to do for me. That job was to make contact with my ex-wife and clarify a document that she had sent to me which made no sense. I had a list of questions to guide him. And he did a marvelous job of getting the information I wanted. I could not have expected anyone to do what he was able to do. His attitude and mannerisms were perfect for the job he had to do and I have complimented him profusely because he did such a great job. If I ever need a PI again, I would hire him.Apr 12, 2016VerifiedGotcha Covered Investigation & Recovery's reply
Thank you Wayne
I hired Mr. Maynard on 8/27/2017...I sent him a cashiers check for $3000.00 dated 8/30/2017...then before he even began investigation I cancelled our contract and asked him to refund me my $3,000.00 retainer....I cancelled our contract on 9/3/2017...I did not receive any refund by September 10th, 2017...I emailed him and asked what was the hold up...He said that he had been in the hospital and that he would mail my check out in one to two days...I received a check for $2,000.00 ...He wrote a brief letter with this check that said..."Sorry about the last $1000.00 ...Had unexpected hospital cost...will get it to you soon....I received the $2,000.00 check in the mail on September 12, 2017....I immediately e-mailed him a response...bringing to his attention that this retainer fee was not for personal use but was a business retainer...Since I cancelled his services before any investigative word had begun I would expect my retainer refund in full...It is now September 23, 2017 and I have not received the remaining retainer fee of $1,000.00....!!! Nor have I received any response from Mr. Maynard....Please do not use this Private Investigator....!! I will now have to go thru hoops and ladders to get my $1,000.00 ....!! I have yet to contact the state of Colorado to see if his Private Investigator license is valid...This has caused me undo stress during a very difficult time !! Rebecca S.

This matter went to court and the Judge ruled in my favor and awarded the payment for the work done to Mr. Maynard.
I am including photos of him my experience with a misdemeanor and it shows The $3000 check I sent him his retainer for his own private investigation business and he did no business for me I canceled our contract I did this all through email he sent me a refund check for $2000 and said that he needed the other money for his own personal hospital hospital bills I sent him an email saying that this was unprofessional and retainer was supposed to be used for nothing but investigative services not his own personaluse I did not receive a response from him nor have I received the additional $1000 still owed to me I am including him photo copies of all correspondence with gotcha covered in Mr. Ron Maynard I also contacted Dora which is The department of regulatory agencies in Colorado and cannot find any reference to his license as if he doesn't have one I will be contacting them on Monday via phoneSep 25, 2017Verified
If you want an investigator the really cares, this is the guy for you. He put his heart into his work and I am happy this is who we chose. We have a delicate situation and he dove into it with compassion and urgency. I would use him again and HIGHLY recommend him to othersAug 13, 2016VerifiedGotcha Covered Investigation & Recovery's reply
Thank you Sara.
Ron investigated a delicate situation concerning our daughter-in-law. He was kind and professional. He was extremely thorough. I would give him my highest recommendation. Even though our situation remains unresolved, I am sure that his detailed report will be a great help to our lawyer in the future M.KMay 11, 2016VerifiedGotcha Covered Investigation & Recovery's reply
