The idea of Thai Private Eye was the brain child by Mr. Warren Olson who authored and co-wrote a book about his own extraordinary adventures as a Thailand based Private Investigator in: Confessions of a Bangkok Private Eye
It began as an idea to help a few friends get some piece of mind with local girlfriend problems.
This proved immensely popular and by the mid/late 1990's it had become a full-time undertaking including background checks and surveillance. Warren learnt his trade the hard way; in the fleshpots hidden away down the narrow alleys and back streets of Bangkok.
Warren is still active as a consultant whenever we need his unique expertise or viewpoint on certain issues.
It's a fact of life that many (not all) Thais see westerners as nothing more than an easy meal ticket, a trend which the advent of the internet has greatly increased. The services that we provide could be considered an insurance policy or a down payment on a happy and truthful future.
It's obvious that no one wants to be made a fool of; it is equally obvious that desperate people will resort to desperate measurers. While Thai culture is based upon peace and harmony, it is not uncommon to become embroiled in disputes, lies and deceit. In the long run, it is more economical to find out the truth before investing too much time, money and emotions in long-distance relationships.
