How It Works
Employ services to investigate, locate and recover your lost Domain or Website.
We prepare and provide information and testimony through the use of licensed data recovery specialists and private investigators to locate and recover your intellectual property.
These specialists are trained in the handling and recovery of intellectual property used on the internet for Web Services.
Your initial purchase is a Predetermined Retainer (ONLY). Your fees will be deducted from this retainer. Any residual, at the conclusion of your recovery will be returned within 30 days of your receipt of the associated Report of Investigation.
You will be contacted when the available retainer balance drops to or below 10% of the original retainer. Additional funds may then be required to continue your investigation until the investigation is resolved/closed.
Premise of the Service
