Vincent Parco became a national celebrity after he and his family were featured on "Parco, P.I.", an extremely popular reality television investigative series that aired on Court TV several years ago. The show has now gained an international fan base, thanks to syndication, and Parco is enjoying an even greater level of notoriety and success the second time around.
"It’s really been amazing! You wouldn’t believe the amount of email I’ve gotten from people overseas. They really love the show," said Parco. “The fact that people in other countries have an opportunity to see the show is both exciting and rewarding. I’m really happy about it."
As President and owner of Vincent Parco, P.I., Inc., a professional investigative corporation specializing in criminal and civil investigations, both domestic and international, Parco has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, FOX News and the Oprah Winfrey Show to discuss law enforcement and criminal/civil cases.
Specializing in fraud investigations, medical malpractice, background checks, protection services, video surveillance, forensic support service, insurance fraud and security systems, Parco has worked with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies for more than 25 years and is regarded by many of his peers as one of the best in the business. However, it is the brash, grizzled and tough-talking Italian’s next law enforcement endeavor that is sure to make national headlines.
Vincent Parco, P.I., Inc. is about to embark on something remarkable and unprecedented. The investigative agency will launch an all-out effort to track down many, if not all, of the "deadbeat dads" in the United States, and Parco will be offering the service to women free of charge! The renowned investigator vehemently denied that this is a publicity stunt or ad campaign to promote his business. On the contrary, he views it as a genuine effort to address “a disgraceful and disgusting problem that’s only getting worse."
“I decided to hunt down deadbeat dads because I felt men should take responsibility for their actions. Our welfare system was designed to help people in need. It was not designed so men could father children and simply let the government take care of what these men consider to be ‘an unwanted problem,” stated Parco during an interview in his Manhattan office.
“I’m an old school Italian, and I was taught from a very early age that it’s all about family. Where I come from, you take care of yours! These guys need to be held accountable, and I’m offering this service to women because I realize many of them can’t afford a private investigator. They can barely put food on the table for their kids or pay rent, for God’s sake! I don't have the heart to charge them,” said an angry Parco.
“Some of these so-called fathers are making millions in big business and driving around in high-end sports cars with their trophy girlfriends, but they won’t send a dime for monthly child support. That’s just not right. It really pisses me off, so I’m going after these guys, rich or poor, with a vengeance.”
“America’s P.I.” noted that the child support enforcement division does not have enough capable investigators to track down deadbeat dads, and those that are attempting to locate the fathers are completely inept and unprofessional. Moreover, Parco pointed out that the most difficult aspect of these cases is finding out where many of the fathers are employed, since the majority of them usually seek positions that are off the books.
“This is where our female private eyes are utilized. They make contact with the men as decoys. What often ends up happening is that the men try to impress them by bragging about their jobs or titles,” Parco stated.
“Ultimately, the female investigators get the phone number of their place of employment. Once that happens, we trace the number and find out the exact location of where they work. Now, this is the best part,” Parco said enthusiastically.
“We then videotape them working and use it as evidence or the basis for a confrontation. I approach them, in as nice a manner as possible, and try to get them to man up to their responsibility. If they become violent, we have the police on standby or take appropriate action within the law.”
Parco has been presented with an award from the New York division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) for his lifetime contribution to law enforcement and private investigation. His affiliations include the following: the American College of Forensic Examiners, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the Association of Legal, Medical & Investigative Experts - Former President, the Private Detectives Association of New Jersey, and the International Association of Caribbean Investigators (East Coast Directors).
In addition to being a successful private eye, Parco is a published author whose books include "How To Be Your Own Private Investigator", "How To Research Public Records" and "How To Catch Him With His Pants Down & Kick Him In His Assets." He is the subject of the book "True Detectives", by William Parkhurst, and serves as a commentator every Tuesday at 7 pm, Eastern Standard Time, on the Paltalk News Network - www.paltalknewsnetwork.com.
