David B. Watts, a licensed private investigator for the past four decades, specializes in fraud and business investigations.  He and Linda, his wife of 53 years, worked for major law firms and the Fortune 500 in the busy New York to Philadelphia corridor on cases ranging from kickbacks to special security issues. Dave has also worked several murder cases and innumerable insurance fraud matters.  His investigation career began in his twenties as a Plainfield, New Jersey patrolman. He was promoted to detective, and then joined the Union County Prosecutor’s Office as a County Investigator. These early experiences eventually launched him into a lifetime of investigation work in the private sector.  His pursuit of the facts brought him into state and federal courts as well as the board rooms of major corporations.  He continues to take on special investigations, now in his seventies.  This program is presented free and no registration is required.
