San Francisco's Leading Private Investigators

Anyone venturing into San Francisco’s notorious Barbary Coast from 1849 – 1906 had a pretty good idea of what to expect. If you were lucky enough to sidestep the drunken sailors in one of the neighborhood bordellos or saloons, you might run into someone far worse lurking around Murderer’s Corner…

Of Course, the Barbary Coast has long since become just a colorful slice of history; the irony is that today, it can be much more difficult to recognize people — especially professional people — who are not what they seem. Scams have grown more sophisticated and con artists are often among the best-dressed and most articulate individuals. Entrusting them with your finances or proprietary information could seriously jeopardize the future of your company.

At Barbary Coast Investigations, you can always expect top notch professional service from the Bay Area’s leading investigators.
