The Internet Investigations Expert

Internet Investigations is a niche service. The Internet Investigators is a boutique investigative agency with over 20 years experience conducting complex online investigations. We’ve covered over 10,000 targets from piracy and counterfeit drugs to rogue Internet networks and mobile apps.

The typical business that contacts us is an Intellectual Property or Fortune 500 brand / law firm. These clients task us to identify how it works, who is operating it, and how to disrupt it or take it down. We supply them with evidence captures, affidavits, landscape reports, strategies, and court testimony.

Our experience is global. We’ve trained investigators and launched enforcement programs in over 40 countries. We also train law enforcement agents to help launch complex cases on behalf of our clients. We’re a licensed CA private investigator on a single mission:  Internet enforcement.

How We Do It: Internet Investigations.

We investigate every detail.

Internet investigations traceroute
Internet investigation DNS name servers

A website is made up from many pieces.  We trace down each piece and scour through the HTML for clues about the operation and the operator. In many cases, we’ll find related websites, domains, scripts, publisher codes and more that tie back to and help identify the  suspect.

  • Inbound/Outbound traffic: Hyperlinks & referrers.
