Michael Abernathy

Bio
I am a 39 year veteran police officer beginning my career as a military policeman during the Vietnam war trained in the specialty of crime scene investigation. I have supervised detective bureaus over the years and have handled over 5,000 crime scenes.
I created a company called Abernathy Investigative Group LLC to take on the top crimes in America, ID Theft, Check Fraud, Internet Fraud and fraud against the elderly.
We have created a system to recover funds for businesses from bad or fraudulent checks, getting back all the money the client lost.
We also created a check fraud protection system with a trademark pending under the name Check Safe Fraud Protection Systems.
This verification system analyzes 25 items on a check to make sure that not only is it a genuine check, but verifying in real time that the check has enough funds to cash the check.
In the event fraud is detected we notify and coordinate the response of the police to the incident.
In our preliminary tests we approved over seven million dollars in checks and detected over one million dollars in fraudulent checks.We are about to roll out a prototype that conducts the verification faster and electronically transfers funds into the clients account.
Our next projects are to create a network of consumers and businesses that by paying a monthly membership fee, they receive unlimited protection from fraud along with the ability to investigate incidents that have occurred in the past or may occur in the future. We offer a specific service as part of the membership where members can check out a company, person or group to make sure they are legitimate before they enter into business agreements with them.
The next project is to create a network of reputable businesses that agree to be investigated on a regular basis to verify they are properly licensed, insured, incorporated in the state they do business, and are free of complaints.
They will then be given access to our clients online

As law enforcement professionals we have seen your frustrations at this problem and we are doing
something about it We will never stop working for you.



We can protect your businesses from Identity fraud and check fraud

One of the saddest things about fraud is the fact that the small and medium sized business suffer the most losses. Even though the loss may be written off their taxes, die initial loss takes money from their business and eventually from their families.
Due to fraud committed by en employee we have seen businesses shut down because all of their as¬sets have been stolen or the turmoil caused by the embezzlement has affected their relationships with their vendors caus¬ing harm to their reputation in the business com¬munity. In many of these cases the offenders have never been pursued either out of embarrassment, or they had no one they could turn to for help in preparing the case in court The end result is a court case lost and the funds never recovered.
One of our cases involves an Illinois business who on the recommendation of a friend, they hired a, person to handle their office affairs. That person wound up embezzling over seven million dollars from that company
