Companies across Europe suffer great losses in sales due to product and brand counterfeiting. In order to reliably convict the perpetrators, we are conducting anonymous test purchases on your behalf, not only in Germany but also across borders and internationally. 

This gives you results from one source that are structured in such a manner that they can be used directly in court when accompanied by an affidavit. Therefore, it is worthwhile to hire an investigator or private detective from corma for test purchases in order to specifically track down counterfeits and the people who sell these false products.

Making undercover test purchases in many different countries is often laborious. Therefore, we now invite you to place your trust on private investigators who will give you reports that you can use in court and know exactly how to handle anti-counterfeiting documentation in order to be on the safe side legally as well. 

Our economic detective agency provides you with structured test purchase reports and excellent photos to ensure complete preservation of evidence for counterfeits, falsified brands and copies of brand products.
