Wolfgang Grasst - Washington State Investigators Seattle Private Investigation Seattle | Tacoma | Everett | King County | Pierce County | Snohomish County
My name is Wolfgang Grasst founder and principal investigator at Washington State Investigators. We are a private investigation agency dedicated to supporting individuals and businesses with an affordable means to the information, and investigative services they require. In 2004, I used my skill set as a computer technician and specialized in installing monitoring software on client machines. This cutting-edge technology enabled me to remotely collect and analyze data on user activities, providing valuable insights for fraud, identity theft, and online harassment investigations. I worked closely with attorneys and private investigators to meticulously gather evidence to support their cases. In 2007, I co-founded and managed Eye Spy, Inc. a technology based private investigation firm where I specialized in tackling internet crimes, civil and criminal investigations, and counter-surveillance measures. My expertise spanned a diverse range of services, including child custody investigations, workers’ compensation fraud, personal injury cases, witness location, data research, hidden asset searches, adultery and infidelity, skip tracing, and covert surveillance services. In 2010, I took an opportunity to earn two Associate of Applied Science degrees in Information Technology Networking and IT Security. This allowed me to use my new skill set to advise clients about network and security best practices, and to educate them about reducing malicious threats to their electronic devices, online browsing, email and social media account use, by using 2FA authentication, VPN’s, and other methods to reduce threats from hackers, and to better protect their privacy and anonymity. With a desire to keep my skill set current, I research current best practices in network defense, security, and research current trends related many types of cybercrimes. For many of us, technology is a normal part of our daily lives. Again, having the technical knowledge allows me to educate clients by allowing me to recommend best practices to better protect themselves and their electronic devices. In 2013, I founded Washington State Investigators and the principal investigator. While managing Washington State Investigators, I understood my skill set is more defensive minded, so I developed a working relationship with a Cyber Security Intelligence and Operations Specialist to provide cyber security based services, named Aracari Project. Services we provide to clients include Cryptocurrency Scams and Fraud investigations, other cybercrime related investigations, online OSINT Scrubbing services, Dark Web searches, Penetration Testing, Network Monitoring, and online data research. As of October 2022, we have provided cryptocurrency scams and fraud investigations to clients who have lost more than 4 million dollars combined.
