Thailand private investigator job

Thailand private investigator job.

If you live in Thailand and outside of Bangkok, then we might have part-time work available. But, we do not have any permanent full-time positions available at this time. It is difficult to find steady full-time work as a Thailand Private Detective in Thailand. Most Thailand private investigator companies are already fully staffed and have the personnel they require. However, over the last 3 years, the business has been increasing for Siam Spy and our Thailand private detective network. Especially in the following fields.

Top Investigation Inquiries: 

  • Insurance Fraud Investigation.
  • Infidelity cases. Thai girl (usually a bar girl) with a Western husband/boyfriend.
  • Infidelity cases. A foreign man married a Western woman.
  • Thailand business background checks.
  • Thailand-Vietnam People Finder (lost friends or relatives).

The highest increase is with infidelity cases involving Thai bar girls and foreign men from the West. This has always been a lucrative business for any Thailand Private Detective. In recent years the demand has increased considerably. Even so, Siam Spy has enough personnel that we can usually manage all cases easily. However, during the peak season for us (January-May) we see an increase in this area of investigation. During those months we can take on temporary investigators on a part-time basis only. It is always on a case-by-case basis. In most cases, the temporary agent will join in on an investigation that requires additional personnel. Many cases require a team of investigators (2 or more).

Language, Customs, and Culture

The main barrier to finding a Thailand private investigator job is the lack of experience in Thailand. Applicants for a Thailand private investigator job need Thai language skills. They also need knowledge of Thailand and Thai customs. This is a liability for any Thailand Private Detective agency. There are numerous situations that require language and cultural skills, especially in rural areas. Trying to find a Thai person who speaks English in a farm village is difficult. Many cases require travel to locations outside of Bangkok, Pattaya, or Phuket. In these regions, these skills are required. Most of the time a Thai national (my wife or her sister) will handle cases in rural areas, farm villages, and tiny towns. I also do these cases in tandem with my wife. Because she is Thai my presence isn't going to be questioned or suspected. I'm just the Farang husband, so I fit right in.

No Glamour Here

Although a Thailand Private Detective Job might sound exotic and glamorous, it isn't. It is difficult and tiring work. Conducting surveillance in sweltering 90-degree heat with high humidity is not fun. Trying to get photographic or video evidence in this kind of condition can be hazardous to your expensive equipment. During the rainy season, surveillance can be next to impossible at times. Torrential rains, high winds, and stifling heat aren't ideal working conditions. There are only 4 months of the year when conditions are ideal, November to January. After that, the burning season starts. This is usually when we take our annual 2 months to leave and travel outside Thailand. The pollution in Thailand during March and April is very unhealthy. This is also when Songkran, the Thai water festival takes place. We're both over it.

The challenges of having a Thailand Private Detective Job are many. Record keeping is poor, to say the least. Finding addresses in rural towns can be frustrating. The heat, the rain, and the humidity, all make it an uncomfortable way to make a living. But, it is something I enjoy. But, it isn't for everybody. I've lived in Thailand for many years so I am used to it. A foreigner coming here for the first time is going to find the conditions difficult. For some, the conditions are unbearable.

Thailand Private Investigator Job

Siam Spy started in 2001 after the economic crisis in Asia. Prior to the collapse, I had a really good job in Bangkok making lots of money. I was an Internet Consultant when the Internet was new and untapped in Thailand. It was easy to find work in this field as nobody had the skills or knowledge I had. I started working with the Internet in 1990. In 1996-1997 when the Asian economic crisis hit, I moved back to the USA. That's where I met my wife, she was from Bangkok and attending university in Los Angeles. A few years later we moved back to Thailand. When I lived in the USA I worked as a private investigator handling insurance fraud. Starting a PI service in Thailand was difficult. Over a few years, I grew it to what it is now. A highly successful and busy operation.

    Prices and fees

    While the quoted price generally includes all costs, some complicated cases may require extra expenses. These additional expenses are minimal but necessary for out-of-town investigations. For example, hotel and fuel costs. If any other charges are required, then the client will be told beforehand. But, in general, the quoted rate includes all costs and fees. In other words, there are no hidden costs.
