A client, about to invest in a new business venture, proposed by a certain Mr. Brown, engaged our investigative research team to provide a final background check on its owner. Due diligence already completed showed the owner to be a well-respected CEO of a private group of companies with annual sales between 10 to 15 million dollars. Moreover, the business model and projections for his new venture appeared sound. However, FFP’s thorough investigation of public records and court documents revealed the owner had very recently declared personal bankruptcy with liabilities of just over one million dollars and no declared assets. Moreover, prior to this business he had been convicted on charges of fraud, conspiracy and forgery while operating another company. Thus, FFP research uncovered significant risks and helped our client make a fully informed decision.
