NCISS–Investigators Respond To Pretext Indictment

Posted by Bill on December 8, 2007

The National Council of Investigation & Security Services (NCISS), a national organization representing the investigation industry, a very good group too, responded in a press release to the recent pretexting indictment of private investigators:

The National Council of Investigation and Security Services condemns the theft of private, protected personal information from government agencies.  An indictment was recently brought against a number of individuals who are alleged to have obtained records from the Social Security Administration and Internal Revenue Service without consent.  If the allegations are true, then strict enforcement is certainly appropriate.

The alleged actions of this small group of people are not representative of the many licensed private investigators who work every day to fight fraud, locate witnesses and support the US system of justice.

Licensed private investigators conduct lawful inquiries for attorneys, insurance companies and other legitimate clients using traditional investigative tools.  It is never acceptable for anyone to impersonate an actual individual to obtain that individual’s confidential information.

See Press Release

If you are in the investigation or security industry, join NCISS.  They represent your interests in Washington, DC.

I agree,

 Bill Lowrance

President PIAVA
