About Nick De Boer.


Meet the founder.

Nick De Boer, founder and owner of 8mm Investigations, tailors his skip tracing and cyber investigation services to give you the best experience – and the best outcome.

After graduating from his Counselling Diploma, Nick started his own counselling practice supporting clients with mental health, bullying and harassment, advocacy, consulting, youth work and child protection. He had a successful career and was fortunate enough to help many people along the way.

After 8 years, Nick decided to embark on a new career as a private investigator, pursuing a dream inspired by the Nicolas Cage film 8MM. After working in traditional private investigations, he saw a growing need for skip tracing and cyber crime investigations. Nick has now turned his attention to helping clients in that area – and has completed a variety of qualifications and specialised training to better assist his clients.

From finding lost relatives or skip tracing debtors to preventing internet fraud, online investigations or conducting image analysis, Nick helps a range of clients around Australia.

Nick is a licensed private investigator and security risk advisor. He has a special interest in skip tracing, missing persons cases, digital forensics, security operations and cyber crime investigations. It’s a great opportunity for you to have the benefit of Nick’s passion for the industry, for fairness in all his dealings and his absolute commitment to the best result for you.
