Put Your Keys Near your Bed At Night

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr's office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.
This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage.
If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around. After a few seconds, all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

Court Experience and Private Investigator Long Island

Back tomorrow to Supreme Court in Central Islip as the key witness for our client. At Long Island Investigations, we have literally thousands of hours of court experience that is unmatched. Our Investigators have testified as witnesses in Family Court, Criminal Court, Grand Jury, Federal Court's Southern District, NY Eastern District, NY, Southern District Houston, TX, Miami FL and so many more. In many cases, the Investigator's responsibility does not end with the investigation. It extends to the court hearings, depositions and trials. Experience is the only thing that makes an investigator a good witness. Anyone who says different, does not have that experience.
Here is a link to just one of Paul Massimillo's past cases in Federal Court from years ago.

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.

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.
