Gary Bekkum first brought Starstream Research to the fore in 2004, working on it as an informal review of related literature that looked at exotic physics, as well as consciousness concepts that were related to the propagation and thriving of the human race. Starstream research drew from sources that were in Bekkum’s network of science industry and defense industry contacts.
Thanks to his work, Bekkum has a good many contacts with various intelligence officials who have expressed interest in how exotic physical phenomena, such as antigravity, can be applied in various fields. On the whole, Starstream Research provides open-source intelligence on issues that deal with futuristic defense; moreover, it has recently alerted the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), calling up a private investigation on a case involving U.S. bank, which failed to address, and in a timely manner, a transfer of funds that had been unauthorized, and that had taken place in late 2007. The bank has still not addressed the issue, and has, moreover, gone on to start up even more transfers of funds without notifying the account holder, and without authorization from the account holder.
The Starstream Research group speculates that the bank network has been breached by a hacker, and the network may be compromised. In order to determine if this has indeed occurred, a private investigation may have to take place. In this case, a private investigation may be carried out in order to probe the extent of damage done to the bank’s network, and moreover, to trace who is responsible for carrying out the unauthorized transfer of funds.
Private investigation truly is a difficult field to get into and survive in, but it is also a rewarding field when the investigation winds down and justice is served. In 2006, there were about fifty two thousand licensed private investigators working in the United States according to compiled government statistics , with about a third of these investigators listing themselves as self employed. Private investigation, at its very heart, is dangerous, and yet it can also be tedious as most investigators have to conduct hours-long stakeouts, or simply wait for things to happen.
Private investigators also come from many different fields. Some will be computer science graduates, and will specialize in searching through databases, diagnosing computer networks, analyzing the integrity of networks and how well they are protected from hackers, and even re-obtain missing or deleted computer data. Other private investigators will be criminal justice majors, while still others will be accountants, and will do work for private business firms.
