Social Media Investigations
Social Media Investigations in Oxnard, CA
Social media is often used for fact-finding and evidence collection. Posts on someone’s Facebook wall or tweets on Twitter are being used to find out where people are and what activities they participate in.
For example, people often post pictures of their adventures, post comments about where they are going, write blog posts about their vacations and so on. If an employee repeatedly calls in sick and it becomes an issue in the workplace, investigators may turn to social media to look for pictures or comments to make sure the employee wasn’t out on the golf course of shopping with friends when they were “sick”.
The same goes for insurance claims investigations. Ragan and Associates uses social media to figure out whether or not people are submitting fraudulent claims.
For example, if someone’s house is robbed or they end up in a car accident, people tend to post these things on their social media page and will go into great detail of what actually happened.
