Countering Blackmail

img11Blackmail is the act of threatening to reveal substantially true information about a person to the public, a family member, or associates unless a demand is met. This information is usually of an embarrassing, socially damaging, and/or incriminating nature. As the information is substantially true, the act of revealing the information may not be criminal in its own right nor amount to a civil law defamation; it is the making of demands in exchange for withholding the information that is often considered a crime.

English Law creates a much broader definition of blackmail, covering any unwarranted demands with menaces, whether involving revealing information or not.

Deception and blackmail are crimes just like any other. They both have victims, though the injury usually inflicts each victim financially. CIS have gained valuable experience in the last year countering and neutralising the threat of blackmail and deception. Through covert surveillance, investigation and undercover operatives CIS can bring any attempt to deceive or blackmail a client to a conclusion of relief. Countering blackmail is a skill not known by many of our competitors, and we have had immense success in our methods.

On occasion the actual evidence gathered from the surveillance teams is enough to stop blackmailers dead in their tracks; ceasing all further demands and returning any holdings that had been ill-gained in previous attacks.

If you have or are in the process of being blackmailed, or think you may be being deceived then please contact us for a tailored made and highly professional solution to this type of criminal activity. CIS will always act on the client’s behalf and their wishes as to supplying evidence to the relevant authorities for prosecution will always be the client’s decision. Either way – a satisfactory conclusion is guaranteed and peace of mind from further anguish.
