It is necessary to constantly innovate and take out new services because criminals innovate and those of us on the side of good must do the same.
That is why in LY Detectives we have addressed the new challenges in investment by creating this service.
Lately, the crimes against patrimony are occupying many headlines and we take part in many hours of investigation at the request of authorities.
We are asked to investigate the scam to which they are or have been submitted.
The truth is that as time passes one thinks that these types of scams should be known and that people would not incur them, many people fall victims in the following:
- Purchase and sale of vehicles online.
- Investments without knowing the manager and everything online.
- Rental of apartments and real estate.
In short, scams, even the most elementary and oldest, known and improved, remain an important part of the crime and its modus operandi from outside Kenya.
However, when it comes to heritage, you have to make sure that what is behind a website, an email address, a mobile, or any other form of contact with the manager, is authentic, real, reliable and legal.
Our goal has been to design a service that allows the client to have a clear and reliable image, limit the risk and know who is behind an economic transaction in order to protect their assets, their expectations, their illusions.
The purpose of this service is to offer the client (investor) a faithful image of the company, business, individual, etc. with which you want to establish a commercial-economic relationship and put a part of your assets/capital in the hands of third parties for its management and profitability.
Therefore, before investing in certain funds that offer a tremendous guarantee and profitability, that have a really attractive website and that have comments from really impressive clients, it is convenient to conduct due diligence, analyze, request information, contrast data and issue a report that allows the client (investor) know and make decisions based on facts, on data, and not only on appearances or possible false news and comments that appear on the web.
Protection in the purchase and sale of vehicles
People see “bargains”, believe what they see, high-end vehicles at good prices, with ease of bringing them to Kenya immediately and for a reasonable amount of money.
They fall into the trap (scam), they pay a small amount as a reservation, and they are asked for a larger amount for the purchase and documentation in their vehicle name. Later documentation is sent that is not real and that the vehicle is already in transit to Kenya.
But there is no car, no company, no procedure, no associated sales channel, or place where you can see the car, and even, there are photos of workshops, which without knowing their owners, are being part of this credibility image that The scammers want to give the buyer.
For this, we have also established an investigation procedure based on what our experience in these matters is; leading us to these “cartels” organized in the purchase and sale of vehicles.
We offer the client the possibility of contracting the investigation before disbursing any amount of important money to buy a vehicle that does not exist.
Protection in the rental of real estate
And in the part corresponding to real estate scams, there are also criminal organizations that put photos of real estate that are not theirs.
They adore and treat them conveniently with an edited image or they simply offer at low prices a property that does not exist.
The image counts a lot, it is retouched and does not correspond to reality, either because of the views, or because of the appearance, or because of the furniture or because of the neighbourhood. In itself, everything is part of the economic scam.
The rental of real estate is regulated, there are laws in this regard, and beyond that, we must know who is rented, what is rented and who is paid and where it is paid.
Always remember that LY Detectives “cares for you”.
