NYPD Undercover, My ass!!!

NYC SUV and Cycles

By now you all have knowledge of this incident. But, as a former MOS of the NYPD, both Investigator and Undercover, I must express my opinion on this so called "cop."
Number one thing I see here is that this undercover was NOT on duty. So he chose to ride with these thugs, he wasn't assigned this duty. He associates with these guys???? Based on past protests and "rides," they have a bad rep. He is a 10 year veteran of the NYPD, so I guarantee he was aware of this...and he was from the Intel Division..even more of a reason to know of this group's activities in the past.
Secondly, undercover or not, when you see this happening to a person, as a cop, you automatically help them. You say "screw this" and you do everything in your power to stop the assault. He did not. He chose to participate. He didn't even call 911. He actively participated, as can be seen in video footage.
He should be ashamed. He should not be a cop. End rant. Thanks for listening.

Countertfiet Goods

Private investigator on Long Island recently began a partnership involved fighting counterfeit products. This large scale and illegal business generates millions of dollars in losses to companies each year. These costs are passed on to the consumer. 
These products, including watches, handbags, wallets, sports shirts, clothing foods, toothpaste and cigarettes (to name a few) are produced in several places, but particularly in China without any oversight. Don't fall victim to the cheap prices. Oh and btw, the copies are crap anyway.

Dash Cameras

Because insurance fraud is so rampent in Russia as well as a few other places, many..I mean MANY people install dash cams in their cars so they can avoid the fake auto accident scams that are ubiquitous in Russia.
Watch this video and see some amazing things. Though not fraud related, it is still riveting to see.
Private Investigator, Long Island Investigations, Inc., does use dash cameras on two vehicles. They are simply priceless for investigations, particularly surveillance. We can even park a car, leave for hours with the vehicle unattended, and come back later on. We can then view the video in fast speed to see the footage.
Sometimes I keep mine on when simply driving around. I have captured some cool video., but nothing at all like you see in this video:

GPS Global Positioning System

GPS Usage and Surveillance
GPS use along with physical surveillance has become a standard these days. At Long Island Investigations, Inc., a Long Island Private Investigator, there is not eve a fee for it's use during a surveillance. It is a wonderfully reliable and indispensable tool.
There are very strict laws here in New York and pretty much everywhere, that define, and in many cases, prohibit it's use.
Generally, and I say "generally," you can legally install a gps on a vehicle that you or your spouse own privately. Even if a vehicle is registered to the other party, it is community property and therefore, in most cases, legal. A company car can only be tracked with consent from a shareholder/owner etc. For instance; we can track a company's delivery truck or a sales person, with the company's consent, if they are using a company vehicle. But if a spouse want's to track her husband's company vehicle, we can't.
With GPS as a surveillance aid, we can track the exact location of the vehicle, within 5 feet. Yes, it's that accurate. It is shown in "real time" with updates every 10 seconds. All stops are logged with addresses and times. All  movement too. We can access it on any smart phone, tablet or computer.
If you are in need of a surveillance type investigation, Long Island Investigations, Inc., can utilize this tool along with investigative know-how and experience to conduct a productive investigation.
GPS is extremely useful in situations where conventional surveillance is limited, such as dark side roads and gated communities. Actually, the uses are endless!
I highly recommend the use of GPS when practical and legal.

Disclaimer: Consult/be guided by your local laws before you track someone. Illegal tracking is a felony and you can be fined or have your PI license revoked! This article is for your reading and in no way is it legal advice, so don;t take it as such.

Posted by: Long Island Investigations, Inc.
Lately, here on Long Island, there has been an uptick of attempted abductions of children and young teens, while on there way too or from school. Last month there were three in Nassau County alone, that I heard about through the school district. Who knows how many more there were?
Every parent should review the tips in this article and discuss it with your children in great detail...especially the need to escape, if the child is pulled into a vehicle. Please caution them..don't be afraid to scare them...they need to be aware!!!

United States Court, Southern District of Texas Appeal

Heres a link I found today from a very old case I did back in 1995 and 1996. It was a great eavesdropping narcotics case involving New York, Miami, Houston, Venezuela and Colombia.

If you search within the document for Massimillo, you will see my part in the appeal.

Snagged. Insurance Fraud

Insurance fraud

As most of you know, Long Island Investigations, Inc., conducts many in-depth and extensive insurance fraud cases for 3 well known insurance companies on Long Island and in New York City. This is just one example of why. Click the link above to see what is happening every single day in the US and everywhere else. Our insurance rates are astronomical and fraud is a BIG reason for it. In places like Russia, it's become standard equipment to have a dashboard camera on your car due to the amount of fraud.  I wish people would report insurance fraud rather than turn away and ignore it.

Hire a REAL Private Investigator

Long Island Private Investigator advice on hiring a PI:
Be cautious when hiring a PI. 
Are they licensed? Many are not. It is illegal to conduct investigations without a license issued by the state in NY, and most states.
Are they insured? It's not a requirement, and MANY choose to save the insurance fees...a very bad sign.
Do they have worker's compensation insurance? Another one many choose to bypass.
How long have they been doing investigations?  How many cases in that time?
How many investigators do they have and what are the backgrounds of the people conducting your investigation?
Are they available 24/7?
Are they keeping you involved DURING the actual investigation during the surveillance?

Here, Paul has instructed many NYPD Detectives HIS art and skill, developed years ago and tweaked constantly.
Do they have tens of thousands of hours of actual surveillance under their belt? Or is this a part time thing for an under qualified person?
Have they personally testified in court? If so, more than 350 times? Do they know HOW to testify? Have they testified in multiple jurisdictions? Very important issue here. You don't want an amateur on the stand at YOUR trial or hearing.
Feel free to ask us ANY of these will like our answers!
