‘theInvestigators‘ on YahooGroups is a new email newsgroup, or ‘listserv,’ offering private investigators an unparalleled opportunity to network with other like minded professionals.
This group is to network, build professional relationships, share stories and advice – all the things that listserves did many years ago, but has lost for various reasons. Almost any professional investigator is welcome – you must provide complete business and professional information (do I really need to explain this?). Email me privately if you have any questions or concerns. My only intent is for this to be a fair and supportive group.

Feel free to post:
– Your introduction (feel free to repeat in moderation)
– Services you offer and where
– Experience and other associations
– Goals, accomplishments and other bragging points
– Products and services (i.e. books – see item 1)
– Requests for assistance, guidance, looking for work, etc.
– Offers of assistance, guidance, etc.
What I would really rather not see – because they are prolific on other lists – ‘asset checks’ or ‘site inspections’ that don’t offer enough to pull out of the driveway. We are all worth something, don’t insult us. Also, if you have a concern about the legitimacy of a poster – make an inquiry before blasting something insulting. Finally, if it should be private – make it private (or warned and removed).
This is designed to be a self-moderated group of professional investigators in the private sector. Those that cannot reach to that professional level will be warned and then removed, or suspended for a period of time.
There is lots of room for jokes and banter – feel free to use moderation in sending messages, and also remember there is a delete key. If you feel concerned, email me privately.
Bottom line – have fun, make friends, form a network, and act like this group is a combination of an association meeting, coffee meeting, happy hour, or other place you might chat with friends. If you would share at the table, share here – if you would not, don’t. I do ask that you include a signature line – just like handing a business card. Thanks, Dean A. Beers, CLI
I think you get the idea. I hope you join me, tell others, and we all grow personally and professionally from this new experience!
