Baycorp NZ could be seen as the catalyst to the starting of The CIA Debt Recovery Group Ltd.
The Principal of this business started as a field agent for Baycorp NZ way back in 1992. It was clear, in a very short time frame, that his former Police experience of dealing with people from all walks of life was able to gain rapport with debtors with 2 debtors actually ringing to compliment his work in the space of 3 months.
His work in West Auckland soon developed so that he was able develop a business plan which quickly evolved into the forming of the national private investigative and debt collection business, then called Chase Investigative Agencies, also known as CIA.
In 2008 we relinguished the private investigator's licence as we found that it wasn't required for the core work of tenancy and general debt collection. The licence actually states on the card that it grants no extra powers over the normal citizen and then, as an aside, the Private Investigator's and Security Guards Act takes away the right, of private investigators to take photos, videos and audio convertly. The licence is a useless piece of paper so hence the changes.
Since you cannot use the word investigative, or derivatives, in the company name without a private investigators licence, the name of the company was changed to The CIA Debt Recovery Group Ltd as it is today.
