So often in life it all comes down to protecting yourself, your loved ones, and your assets. We specialize in investigating a wide range of matters related to people and money. We excel at investigating religious cults and their leaders; Reg D and Reg A offerings; new romantic partners; and self-proclaimed experts. We investigate people and groups that claim to offer spiritual enlightenment but are after your money. We look into matters of the heart: Is your new love interest really who they say they are? We check out people who claim to be experts and sell miracle cures; investment opportunities; and get rich quick schemes.
Our goal is to find out who these people are in real life, who their hidden partners may be, and what companies they may or may not own. Scammers and predators invariably have hidden pasts and secrets to hide. We seek to find as much as possible by using a wide range of techniques.
We have proven skills in developing sophisticated information source search strategies to identify patterns, networks, and relationships across financial, criminal, public record, archives, and other information sources, some of which are obscure or offshore.
We prefer to work under the direct supervision and instruction of attorneys retained by our clients. This allows our clients to retain attorney-client privilege in their legal matters. The attorney handling your case will want to manage a private investigation in real time. We are very skilled at finding and collecting evidence in obscure places; fine print; interviewing witnesses; and field surveillance. We ask our clients many questions because they often have vital information and documents they may not realize the importance of due to the circumstances or stresses they are experiencing. We help to create the necessary distance and perspective any investigation requires.
Never make an investment or enter into an important business or personal relationship without first verifying the company, people, or the person. Our clients pay us to be objective, cerebral, skeptical, and fact-finding on their behalf. We seek to discover the truth and the facts for our clients.

Our ongoing, and very public, research and investigation project into the Church of Scientology is called The Scientology Money Project. Our blog demonstrates the high standards of our work and capabilities in openly investigating what we deem to be a >$3 billion corrupt organization.
Jeffrey Augustine's investigational work into Scientology has been cited in Forbes, Fortune, Money, The Tampa Bay Times, and many other publications. He appeared on Leah Remini's double-Emmy award winning program Scientology and the Aftermath.
Augustine's coverage of the $1.8 billion Ponzi scheme conducted by the GPB Capital Holdings of New York City attracted a great deal of attention. The scheme bilked 17,000 investors, many of whom were older people who were taken in by promises of high rates of return. Most notably, Augustine uncovered GPB Capital's ties to the Izmailovskaya gang, a Russian organized crime family.
David Gentile, the owner of the GPB Capital Holdings was criminally indicted along with his associates Jeffry Schneider and Jeff Lash. . The US Federal criminal trial is expected to begin in mid-2023.
