In 2014 American Retailers had estimated a total loss of $42 Billion due to Employee Theft. Almost 90 percent of all businesses have reported losses due to Employee Theft of some kind. Unfortunately, over 75% of this type of theft goes unnoticed! Orlando, FL is a national hot spot for theft due to the enormity of our local tourism, corporate, hospitality and retail industries and almost all of these retailers have a current Loss Prevention team and or program in place. Unfortunately the poorly trained & overwhelmed in house loss prevention agents are barely able to make a dent in the overall shrinkage that most companies experience.


Although theft is only limited by the thief’s imagination the most commonly identified types of Employee Theft in Orlando are:

  • Money: There are dozens of ways employees steal money every day without being noticed. (especially in cash businesses like bars and restaurants)
  • Incoming Business: Literally stealing the entire customer, job or account right from under you.
  • Intellectual Property / Information: Trade Secrets, Databases, Recipes, Blueprints, Business plans, Ideas, Cloud Storage & Software are just a few of the common examples.
  • Merchandise: Prevalent in retail and in all businesses that maintain inventory.
  • Supplies: Office supplies, Computers, Tools, Equipment, Technology and nearly anything else that “no one will notice”.
  • Payroll: Falsifying or Inflating payroll, hours and expenses & not “clocking out” for breaks just to name a few.



Employees are often protected by both state and federal law regarding termination for theft. A Loss Prevention investigation into suspected Employee Theft must provide bulletproof evidence and be conducted by a licensed Orlando private investigator to avoid facing legal action from the very individual who stole from your company.


There are a number of tactics we can employ in loss prevention investigations including covert surveillance, undercover operations, polygraph tests, surveillance detection, GPS Tracking (vehicles, equipment, merchandise and personnel) and employee interviews. In some cases we have uncovered complex and ongoing theft rings that involved numerous employees and had been going on for years. In addition, we can create a strategic ongoing loss prevention plan based on the needs of your business and eliminate any weaknesses or “blind spots” in your business.


SRA can surreptitiously obtain critical the information you need to answer your questions and in many cases improve your profits or even save your business.

Mark A., Tampa, FL | Attorney, 16 years

I have worked with Southern Recon on several investigations. He is an excellent investigator who always gets the job done no matter how complex or dangerous the situation. His fees are very reasonable and he usually puts in more hours than he gets paid for in order to make sure he does a professional job. I highly recommend Southern Recon Agency.

Tina G., Ontario, Canada

Matt provided me with superior service. He handled my investigation in a very professional manner and was always available for me 24/7. He helped solve my case and provided me with accurate evidence proving the suspicion of my husband’s infidelity. I highly recommend his services. Words cannot express the gratitude I have for his services!

Chris G., Tampa, Fl

I requested a background investigation on person that I was looking to conduct business with. I corresponded with the professionals at the Agency over email and the telephone. At no time, was I confused or concern about the process of this investigation. The process was thoroughly explained. Matt Aubin potentially saved me thousands of dollars by giving me an accurate understanding of who I was looking to do business with. Needless to say, I will not be conducting any business with this individual. I am extremely grateful for the work performed by Matt and the agency. It was worth every penny. The level of service provided exceeded my expectations.

Donnie C., Orlando, Fl

These folks are professional and will get results for you quickly. They are not the run of the mill grinding hours for billing people that often fill this profession. Thanks!
