Partner Philip Becnel was featured on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 regarding the practice of some private investigators unethically pretexting confidential telephone records. Philip discussed how Dinolt Becnel & Wells Investigative Group had never engaged in pretexting for such records and how the practice gave ethical, law-abiding investigators a bad name. He also gave his expert opinion about the potential nefarious uses of cell-phone pretexting. On the same day, President George W. Bush signed into law the Telephone Records and Privacy Protection Act of 2006, banning pretexting for confidential telephone records.
