Statement Analysis

Statement Analysis is the science and skill of examining written or oral statements to detect deception and to obtain further information if investigation of events is called for. Located in Randburg/Johannesburg, South Africa I provide Statement Analysis as part of my service offering.


Statement Analysis has wide application opportunities and is effective for use in the following areas to name a few:


  • Human resources
  • Forensic auditing
  • Private investigation
  • Insurance claim fraud 
  • Other suspected fraud scenarios
  • It is a low-tech method that does not require expensive equipment or technological apparatus.

  • It is cost effective when there are many candidates to be screened.

  • It is a rapid method for detecting deception or gaining extra information and is useful in identifying the most likely candidates from a large list. Additional investigative resources and techniques can then be focused productively and efficiently on the most probable candidates.
