The following news is provided by Jim Mabry of Foresight Investigations. Since starting this blog, this has to be the 3rd or 4th story reported. I will start another page where we can post this unlicensed activity and maybe have this available to district attorneys. It seems that most of our bad press comes from people who do not know how to conduct an investigation and are also unlicensed.
GREENSBORO — Police have arrested a man they say was posing as a private investigator.
Greensboro police said Stacy L. Forster was arrested Wednesday and charged with obtaining property by false pretense. A police news release did not include Foster’s age, address or bond information.
According to police, Forster operated a company called Faith and Hope Security and Investigations. Police said he is not licensed to conduct private investigations or conduct private protective functions.
Police said the charge stemmed from taking money for conducting private investigations. Private investigators must be licensed by the N.C. Department of Justice.
