This was my first time using private investigative services and it was a wonderful experience. Bill listened carefully to my questions and concerns and was genuinely interested in getting the answers I needed. His experience and resources allowed him to fully-exploit the limited information I had and find more in a day than I had found in a year of trying myself. His professionalism and diligence exceeded every expectation; I would certainly use his services again in the future and recommend him highly to friends and family. Thank you, Bill, for all you accomplished. I sincerely appreciate the "above-and-beyond" effort you put into my case!

Michael has helped me immensely. I had "met" someone online and just a few days prior to getting on a plane and flying three hours to meet this individual in person...something just didn't feel right. I felt like I needed to dig a little deeper as well listen to my conscious, which I'm sad to admit that I was ignoring. There were a few red flags but I wanted to remain positive and give this new person the benefit of the doubt. However, more red flags were popping up, stories weren't consistent anymore/making sense, as well a lot of shady personality traits were starting to surface. I was starting to panic internally thinking the worst and not knowing where to turn or what to do. I was feeling bad about cancelling just two days prior to flying out and wondering if it was my nerves or that I was possibly just overthinking things.. I thought to myself that it would probably be a good idea to hire a private investigator just prior to leaving. Michael Cole was the perfect fit, especially with his extensive law enforcement background he has definitely heard/seen it all! Talking with Michael for the first time and briefly explaining everything to him over the phone he was adamant about me cancelling this trip almost immediately. He was very real with me, hard facts - real! He didn’t like anything I was telling him..or about this guy and didn’t hold back on sharing what he really thought about all of it. He is honest, straightforward and supportive all the way through. He was in constant contact with me throughout this process and answered all of my questions — funny enough, even prior to me asking them. Michael helped to confirm that this man is a con artist with a bad reputation who is manipulative and takes advantage of people and situations. He was able to bring to light old lawsuits, fraud charges and violations not only in the U.S. but also in Canada. As well newspaper articles written about him dissecting his character and the type of person he really is. The articles highlight previous scams he’s orchestrated, failures, lies/deceit, and his false promises. (This really could be a new episode of American Greed) Working with Michael was the best decision I could have made in all of this. Deep down I feel like if I had gone on this trip it would have ended in much more than just disappointment.. and something much scarier... I put myself at serious risk… and I would have been his prey. Since cancelling my plans and briefly giving my reason on why I chose to do so in a brief text message. I decided to block the guy since I don’t care for his response and do not want to hear from him in the future. Since then, of course I have opened myself up to receive a crazy amount of “unknown caller ID” phone calls even after blocking his phone number. Michael has been incredible in all of this and is still guiding me on making the next move,… possibly that being of a police report on stalking. Thank you for everything!

I hired Michael to perform an investigation. He started to work immediately, we went through some dead ends, but he persisted and resolved all the issues for which I had hired him. I thought his fees were modest for the amount of time he spent. He was throrough and professional and I recommend him.

Mr. Paul Graf assisted us with a multi-state investigation commencing 2012. He was highly professional, on time and detailed in his work. Our case was complex and required an in-depth understanding of Federal as well as various States' respective criminal, cyberbullying and anti-trafficking laws. He exhibited patience during the entire process. We were so pleased with his work that we asked him to do a second report for us. I highly recommend Mr. Graf for work from a domestic (or overseas) background check to a more in-depth and complex analysis and investigation.

My experience with Ken was extremely positive. I'd never had to use this type of service before, and while my reason for hiring him had the potential to be embarrassing and humiliating for me, Ken treated me with nothing but professionalism and respect throughout the entire process. He was reassuring, trustworthy, and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a Private Investigator who is not only thorough, but thoughtful with your personal case.

About

Magnum Investigations is a premier investigative agency in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, specializing in video surveillance as it pertains to domestic investigations, including cheating investigations and child custody investigations. If you are shopping for a cheap company, then this agency is not for you. There is a high demand for their services; hence, the higher rates. Unlike other companies, Magnum employs the most elite of investigators, and your partner/ex-partner will never even have a clue that they were watching him/her. 22 years of experience with a law enforcement background has proven to be a key to the success of this agency, coupled with the fact that Magnum is one of the only agencies that utilizes a team of investigators as opposed to making the mistake that too many companies do, and that is following someone using only one investigator. Magnum Investigations has a 92% success rate with child custody investigations. This agency does not take on every case, so consider yourself lucky, if they agree to take yours.
