Canadian Law and Private Investigations

Canadian Law and Private Investigations

By: Norman Groot

This book is a first of its kind in Canada, written to fill a professional and academic void. The growth of the private sector investigation industry in Canada is strong — especially in the corporate realm due to such concerns as the shrinking of public investigation resources, diminishing employee loyalty and therefore increased wrongful acts, an increase in the theft of corporate intelligence. This book is an attempt to provide a body of academic research for this growth industry.

The book is a useful reference text for those practising in the field of private sector investigations, for survey courses on the legal aspects of private sector investigations, and for lawyers, insurance adjusters, businesses and others who use investigative services. For all users of investigative services, this book provides an easy reference explaining the law as it applies to the private investigation industry. It gives the clients of private investigation services a basis to discuss with their investigators the methods used to obtain the results desired.

An Exploratory Study of Used Car Fraud

An Exploratory Study of Used Car Fraud

By: Paul R. Wilson and John Braithwaite

This study is a very preliminary exploration of the incidence of, and the reasons for involvement in one particular form of white collar crime - tempering with the mileage readings on the odometers of used cars by used car dealers. In Queensland, where the study was undertaken in 1974 and 1975, an attempt to mislead consumers as to the mileage of a car by turning back an odometer reading can be prosecuted as criminal fraud. Civil fraud prosecutions are also possible since tampering with odometer readings is a specific offence under the consumer affairs act.
