Frank works closely with trusted agents in all states and territories



The world seems to be turning into a more dangerous place. This means trusting people blindly is getting harder to do.

Frank Carbone has over 40 years experience dealing with fraud and similar crimes of deception. He conducts inquiries on behalf of both victims and defendants and provides comprehensive investigations in criminal cases. 


On behalf of the defence, Frank investigated the following cases:

  • The NCA Bombing

  • The Family Murders

  • Bodies in the Barrel Murders, among many others.

Frank has extensive experience in dealing with fraud and similar crimes of deception. However, his investigative expertise is not limited to criminal investigation, it also includes financial crime – he has conducted inquiries on behalf of both victims and defendants in a range of areas within criminal law.

If you are a victim of fraud or some other form of crime, you may find the police unresponsive to your claims. In the case that the police lack the resources or the motivation to tackle a crime based on their claim that your case is a ‘civil matter’ – even if it clearly involves a criminal element – Frank can provide you with advice about whether or not there is another way to go about solving your problem. In many circumstances, there will be a case of civil action available to you, even if the police will not prosecute the crime. If, in the course of our investigation, evidence is gathered that would assist the police, then our report can be provided to the authorities to encourage them to speed up their inquiry.

If you have been accused of a crime, then you need to explore every available avenue to ensure the prosecution’s job is made as difficult as possible. Your lawyer can advise you regarding the legal issues that surround your matter, but, ultimately, your case will be decided based on the available evidence. Investigators are experts at gathering evidence otherwise left unfound, there may be evidence which exonerates you or raises a reasonable doubt that has not yet been uncovered. We have experts in the areas of computer forensics, handwriting and signature analysis and factual investigations who can assist us in your inquiries. In addition to my in-house team, we also have a bevy of contacts that include investigators and lawyers who have an intimate understanding of the workings of the criminal system.

Speak to Frank now for a cost-free discussion and let him examine whether there is evidence that will resolve your matter just waiting to be uncovered.
