Philippine PI(TM), a professional background check and private
investigation firm based in the U.S. specializing in discreet
investigation services in Southeast Asia and the Philippines, announced
today the addition to its team of existing Philippines private detectives
in Manila and Cebu. The firm continues to expand its operations in the
Philippines and neighboring Asian countries. The addition of professional
field investigators to the existing team comes after 4 years of growth
since the firm's inception in January 2007. 

    Despite a global recession and depressed economic activity, business
demand for verification services remains high. The company expects to add
three new field investigators to the Philippines by October 2011. Clients
from the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia continue to rely on Philippine
PI for discreet due diligence and background checks prior to entering
into business deals, due to the high risk of fraud and scams in the
Philippines. Additionally, risk for romance scams and relationship fraud
from online dating and social networking has increased, and more clients
are turning to the company to minimize that risk. Management expects
dating background checks, pre-marital checks and surveillance, due
diligence and Philippines background checks to remain in demand.

    "We continue to see a significant inflow of clients who are seeking more
professional services," said William J. Carter, Vice President of Private
Investigations. "While there are a seemingly large number of Philippines
private investigation services, the options for professional services are
quite limited." Untrained persons and websites claiming to be
investigators is an ongoing problem, and the U.S. Embassy receives
regular complaints regarding investigator scams and reports of
incompetence. Management's strategy of hiring qualified detectives from
the NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) and AFP (Armed Forces of the
Philippines) is paying off.

    Philippine PI(TM) is U.S. owned and managed. The company is verified by
Truste, McAfee and the U.S. Better Business Bureau. By focusing on expert
investigators and client service, management expects to further increase
market share, and achieve a 25% growth rate for 2011.
