WEBSITE FEEs / RETAINERs
"Members on this website are “retired” FBI agents, many who are “licensed” Private Investigators [PIs], independent contractors and vendors who promote and sell their services as consultants to members of the public, public and/or private industry and/or local, state and/or federal government.
As consultants, they “contract” out their services to conduct criminal/civil investigations, provide litigation support, conduct due diligence inquires, provide executive protection and conduct background screenings, offer expert opinions concerning investigations, do electronic sweeps and counter measures, provide drug screenings, offer forensic accounting services, and conduct surveillances, as well as locate assets and/or conduct other research.
As a result, members command fees for their services. This is “not” a free service.
Before any services will be expended, most members will require a “nonrefundable” retainer fee totaling $1500 - $2500. The amount of the retainer fee will be set by members during contract negotiations. And some members command “nonrefundable” retainer fees totaling $5000.
Unless you are a journalist looking for media “commentary,” and/or someone with an offer of employment, please be advised members do not provide “free” services but will require a retainer fee before any services will be expended. These services are “not” free.
