From initial inquiry to conducting an investigation was only days. Futurum Hong Kong undertook an investigation into advanced fee fraud, reviewed documents, identified and verified that some names used were fake and the documents had been produced that were forged. We decided not to continue working with the broker and were able to recover our initial advance fee.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We’re happy to answer any further questions you have

We use various techniques that include, open source intelligence, reviewing documents and evidence for anomalies, surveillance teams, as well other methods. Our aim is to secure legal evidence that can be presented for a criminal or criminal case.

We are experts when it comes to reviewing and assessing financial documents. Bank statements, invoices of expenditure, asset purchases, property registry files and court records can all be reviewed by our analysts, who will identify any red flags or suspicious activity present. However, due to the nature of Hong Kong’s banking regulations, we are unable to obtain bank statements and financial information from banks.

Our investigation team has decades of experience in criminal investigations, working with police and law enforcement entities in the UK. Years of training and experience from handling complex cases enables us to analyse evidence and information to a higher standard. Additionally, our specialists are trained in investigative interviewing techniques, to collect additional evidence in an ethical and effective manner.

Our interviewers use the P.E.A.C.E. interviewing model, developed in the 1990s by the British police. We use a non-confrontational model to establish facts in an accurate and unbiased manner. Our specialists also combine their experience in identifying behavioural indicators to spot topics of interest. We are the only investigative firm in Hong Kong to utilise these combined techniques. Our team has also trained governments, multinational companies, NGOs and law firms in this style of interviewing.

Initially we assign a lead investigator to have a 30 minute free consultation with you. After we’ve established what needs to be achieved, we can then conduct an assessment and devise an investigational strategy. We will then provide you with a quote for your scope of work. Most of our investigations are conducted in a staged approach, allowing you to prioritise certain aspects of your case. This also helps our clients to maintain a realistic budget, without paying for services they may not require.

The results of an investigation is built on four factors:

 

1) The information you provide to our team before the investigation – the more detailed the seed information and evidence, the better the case.

 

2) The likelihood of other information existing. We conduct intelligence gathering via open source intelligence techniques. While we are able to use proprietary technology to scour the surface and deep web to assist our investigations, we can only obtain evidence that exists.

 

3) A realistic scope of work and objectives. Before we take your case, we will discuss your objectives and advise if we are likely to achieve them.

 

4) Most importantly, the capability of the investigator at hand. Many companies perform “desktop” investigations, simply using Google, or other search engines. As 96-99% of the internet exists on the “deep web”, non-indexed pages that cannot be accessed via search engines, these types of investigations are often lacklustre.

 

Our expert team of investigators have decades of experience. They’ve trained international governments and multinationals in advanced investigation tactics and procedures.

Costs will vary depending on the scope and length of the assignments. Other factors include the deployment of specialised resources including, surveillance teams, digital forensic analysis, undercover operatives, informants, or witness interviews.

 

However in 99% of cases, we are able to provide a fixed fee quote upfront for any specific piece of investigative work, based on outlined objectives.
