5 tips to consider before hiring a private investigator

October 17, 2018 - Reading time: 2 minutes

We take our investigations very seriously, and we think you should too. Hiring a detective can be a daunting experience, at PattayaPI we always guide our clients through the process in a friendly way. We believe you should always ask questions and we will gladly respond to any queries you might have either before, during or after an investigation is complete. At PattayaPI we offer free, no obligation quotes for all work. 

We've put together 5 tips for you to consider before hiring a private investigator, we hope this list will help guide you through the process of an investigation.

1. Don't do it yourself

We are often contacted by people that have already tried to dupe their partner themselves, usually through the internet. This type of baiting rarely works, usually the target will ask to voice or video call with you, and at this point your DIY investigation will fall apart, leaving your partner suspicious and more on edge. This can make our job much harder. If you would like someone to try and approach your partner online, we can do this for you and our fee is very inexpensive. We also offer great rates on personal surveillance. Don't do it yourself and contact us first.

2. Be prepared for the results

If you're hiring us for any type of infidelity investigation, emotions tend to run high. We take no pleasure in giving our clients unwelcome news, and we always hope for the best outcome for our clients in each case. It's a good idea to try and consider each outcome and how you will react to them. It's our job to deliver the truth; sadly sometimes the truth hurts.

3. Don't raise their suspicions

When you're getting ready to hire us to complete an investigation for you, don't raise the target's suspicions. This might seem obvious, but subtle clues can give away your unease and put the person on edge. Often when someone hires a private investigator, they will start to question the target more, and take more of an interest in their movements or what they're doing. This can make the person more alert or wary, so play it cool and don't give the game away. 

4. Be open and honest

When you reach out to a private investigator, be honest with them about your goals and what you're aiming to achieve. Include as much relevant information as possible, it all helps us build up a picture and advise you the best way for us to help. 

5. Trust our advice

We are highly experienced and have dealt with most imaginable situations in the past. Make the most of our expertise and heed our advice. Once you take the step to hire us we will offer as much support and advice as you need to make the right decisions.

If you need to investigate someone in Thailand, reach out to us. We offer free no pressure quotes for all work and would be glad to help you. 


Common lies that Pattaya bar girls tell foreigners

October 9, 2018 - Reading time: 3 minutes

If you're involved with a bar girl working in Pattaya, lies are something you're going to encounter over and over again. With that in mind, we've compiled the 5 most common lies that bar girls in Pattaya tell foreign men...

1. "I don't have a boyfriend"

If you meet a bar girl in Pattaya and she tells you that she doesn't have a boyfriend, don't believe her. A lady working in a bar would never admit that she is already in a relationship. For many of these women their goal is to be in multiple relationships with foreign men at the same time. Don't believe us? Take a look at this video which explains the mentality of many ladies in this environment. As private investigators, we can easily find out if your girlfriend is claiming to be single while you're out of town!

2. "It's my first day/week/month in the bar"

Bar girls aren't stupid. They know what you want to hear and would never admit to working in the bar scene for many years. They will almost always lie and claim to be fresh on the scene, whether she says that it's her first week, her first month, or her second month in the bar. If she tells you that it's her first day in the bar, alarm bells should be ringing out very loudly.

3. "I don't go with customers"

This has to make our top five. "I never go with customers" is one of the most common lies you're going to hear when you start to become involved in a lady that's working at a bar in sin city. The truth is, bar girls meager wages are designed to be bolstered by leaving the bar with customers as much as possible. If you don't believe us, we can find out if she is prepared to leave the bar with customers by visiting the bar ourselves and sending you a detailed report explaining her behaviour. 

4. "I don't have children"

Bar girls will try to make themselves seem as appealing as possible to their customers, and they know that many men are not keen on a lady with one or two children. They will claim not to have any children. It's also very common for bar girls to claim that they have only one child, when they in fact have two or three. If you decide to visit her family, she might tell you the other children are her nieces or nephews. By the time you find out she actually has two or more, you're already in love with her and less likely to walk away.

5. "I'm pregnant!"

This is a very common lie and scenario that constantly gets played out in Pattaya. The condom ripped or bust, and now just a couple of weeks later you're getting a call telling you that you're going to be a father. Many guys are fooled by this, they will return back to Thailand and spend more time (and money) with the woman they think is carrying their child. Don't be fooled, this is a very common tactic used by bar girls in Thailand to force men into committing to them. 

We are experts at finding the truth for our clients and investigating Pattaya bar girls. We can find out very quickly if you're being fed lies. Our rates are highly competitive and we offer free quotes for all work. Get in touch with us today explaining your situation and we'll let you know how we can help.


How much money do bar girls earn in Pattaya?

July 28, 2018 - Reading time: 2 minutes

I was recently asked "How much money do bar girls earn in Pattaya?". The answer isn't as straightforward as you might think and their earnings can vary massively. First of all, different bars offer different salaries. A go-go dancers tend to earn more money than ladies working in beer bars, for example. Base salaries for ladies working in Thai bars tend to be around 8,000 — 13,000 THB per month, however this isn't the only way bar girls earn cash. They also earn money each time someone buys them a drink, each time someone pays a bar fine for them, and a share of the bar's pooled tips. 

A popular bar girl might average 10 drinks per night, at 50 baht per drink, that's an extra 500 THB per night, or 3,500 THB per week. If the lady is bar fined by 3 customers per week, this combined with her drinks could easily earn the lady 10,000 THB extra per week, paid on top of her wages. 

So how much does a bar girl earn? A popular, good looking girl has the potential to earn 30,000+ THB per month, and sometimes they're able to earn much, much more. Other bar girls that are older or less good looking, might rely more on their wages from the bar, only occasionally being bar fined or having drinks bought for them.

Why does this matter? Well, if you're involved with a Thai lady that's working in a bar, you might decide to take her out of the bar and ask her to find a job somewhere else. Often bar girls have children from previous relationships that they need to support with money, as well as sending money to support their parents and sometimes other extended family. If you get seriously involved with a Thai lady, you'll be responsible for supporting her and all of the people that rely on her.

I often tell people that the words "bar" and "brothel" mean the same exact thing, it's important to realize this. A bar girl's aim is to leave the bar with as many customers as possible.

If you're involved with a Thai lady that works at a bar in Pattaya, we can help you find the truth of your situation. We can find out how your girlfriend truly behaves when you're not around. Send us a message today explaining your situation and we will respond with a free, no obligation quote.


Do you need a bar girl detective in Pattaya?

Pattaya bar girl investigations

If there is one thing Pattaya has no shortage of, it’s nightlife. The city is filled with thousands of different beer bars, bar complexes, a gogo bars, clubs and discos. Thousands of foreign men visit Thailand each year and meet Thai ladies working in the adult entertainment industry. Many of these men will go on to marry their Thai partners and even have children together further into their relationships.

However, there is a more sinister side to relationships with bar girls in Thailand. Often these women are from poor families in the north of Thailand and struggle to earn enough money to support themselves. The minimum wage in Thailand is very low, at only around US $11 per day. Thai ladies often look to their partners for financial support, this is typical if the lady is in a relationship with a foreign guy or even a Thai man… Once in a committed relationship the man is expected to help out with money for the lady and her family in Thai culture.

Sadly, many bar girls in Pattaya take advantage of this and try to have multiple boyfriends sending them money at the same time. Often, they will continue to sleep with other men while already in relationships, with the goal of earning (or being given) more money. This is a real problem for men looking to get involved with ladies that work or have previously worked in Pattaya nightlife. As a detective agency based in the city, we have helped countless men discover the truth about their Thai girlfriends. We will take the time to listen to your situation and offer advice on the best way we can help deliver you the truth.

If a Thai lady is working at a beer bar, an agogo bar, or if she regularly visits freelancing spots such as Lucifer or Insomnia, it’s very easy for us to help you by discovering if the lady is open to engaging in more relationships with other guys.

Questions we can answer include:

  • Is she still working in the bar?
  • Can we "bar fine" her?
  • Is she where she says she is?
  • Is she leaving the bar with customers?

After hiring us, there will be no need to worry about what your girlfriend is doing while you’re out of the country. We can deliver you truth professionally and discreetly. Simply send us a message explaining your situation and we will be glad to send you a free quote.


Private investigations in Isaan, northern Thailand

April 24, 2018 - Reading time: 2 minutes

At PattayaPI, we have completed many successful operations in the northern region of Thailand (known as Isan, Isaan, or Esarn). We believe this is a very important part of our work, and here's why.

Many Thai people grow up in the north of the country, typically in rural farming communities but move to either Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket to find work and earn money.

It is widely accepted that the majority of ladies working in beer bars, massage parlors, or elsewhere in the tourist industry have come from Isaan in the north of the country. Typically they will leave their children in the care of their grandparents while they work and send money back.

Map of Isaan, Thailand

In this region of Thailand the Laos language is spoken. This dialect is not typically learned by foreigners living in the kingdom and many people find it hard to understand the subtle cues of this language. It is very important that we retain staff from all walks of life and positions in the Thai class system in order to complete investigations successfully. This could not be truer in Isaan. We treat all cases sensitively and with complete discretion.

Well known provinces in Isaan include Buriram, Surin, Khon Kaen, Udon Thani, Kalasin and Nong Khai. Although people from all the different provinces tend to migrate to Bangkok or Pattaya for work. We are able to work in all provinces of Thailand.

Many people's secrets lay in their hometowns, and in some cases the only way to get to the bottom of untruths is to go directly to their homes, in the small communities of Isaan. We have developed unique methods of social engineering which combined with regular investigative techniques; allows us to deliver an excellent service to our clients while providing value for money - almost anywhere in the kingdom.

If you find yourself needing a private investigator in Isaan, get in touch with us today and see how we're able to help you. We offer free, no pressure quotes for all work.


Does your girlfriend work in a Thai massage parlor?

March 10, 2018 - Reading time: 2 minutes

Does your girlfriend work in a Thai massage parlor? Thai massage is famous the world over. If you mention “Thai massage” to anyone that hasn’t visited Thailand, you might find them associate it with the sex industry and mentions of “happy ending massages”. There are thousands of massage shops all over Bangkok and Pattaya. Many of them offer massages in large open plan rooms… Many other shops have private rooms that customers are lead to for their massages; and plenty other shops provide ‘short-time’ hotel rooms above the massage shop itself.

If someone tells you that they work in a massage shop in Thailand, it’s impossible for you to know if they are involved in the sex industry or not. Many massage shops are legitimate businesses with the staff being trained at a massage school before starting work. Illicit businesses do not advertise themselves as such, as their activities are against Thai law. Genuine massage shops look identical to massage shops which act as brothels and allow their staff to work as prostitutes. You cannot tell simply by looking at a massage shop if they have private rooms upstairs or offer other services to their customers.

Seedy massage shops do not hire trained staff. Genuine masseurs in Thailand attend 3-4 week long courses to learn the proper way to give a traditional Thai massage. The only way to be sure that your girlfriend or partner is not selling sex or ‘massages with extras’ is to hire a private investigator… And that’s where we come in. We have busted hundreds of Thai women working in massage parlors and selling themselves for money. We can guarantee you the best access to the truth and offer nothing but facts in how events unfolded. We never pay for extras or sexual services; our job is only to establish the truth and report back to our clients.
