Indonesia is a country with a high degree of fraud and corruption, ranked 59th out of 160 on the NationMaster Government Corruption list, so it is important to understand a person or companies background before getting too involved on a personal or business level.

Indonesia Private Investigators have seen sharp increases in business from foreign customers. Investigations often focus on brides, girlfriends, and internet dating relationships, as well as foreign business partners and investors. With the high degree of fraud in Indonesia, getting a background check or due diligence investigation is an important security decision. Proceeding in a personal or business relationship without one can be very costly.

Despite the fraud, there are opportunities in Indonesia, both for personal and business relationships. Beautiful brides and profitable business ventures do exist, but hiring a Indonesia private investigator to do a professional background check is an effective way to protect yourself.

When considering hiring a Indonesia detective, it is a good idea to check their location. Many are based in the United States or Europe, not in Indonesia or even Southeast Asia, so the first step is to make sure it's possible to speak with someone that is actually in Indonesia!

While these foreign private investigators may provide excellent service in their home countries, there is a major disadvantage to doing "long-distance" or "internet" investigations in Indonesia. These companies must normally subcontract their services, furthermore without local agents or staff, it is difficult to control the quality and timeliness of their work. In addition, Viet culture, customs, and laws are very different from other countries, and of course the service costs outside Indonesia are also much higher.

Don't be misled by big companies, fancy names, or flashy websites, make sure you can speak to someone that is actually located in Indonesia and can give you customer references and samples of their work before you start.

Indonesia Private Investigators offer discreet private investigative and detective services at affordable local rates. Our team of highly experienced and trained local and expat agents cover all of Indonesia and work with local police, embassies, as well as other government agencies.
