Robert Mann owns a company called The Worldwide Intelligence Network, Corp. (www.wincor.com), operating under the pretense of a sophisticated investigations company, comprised of retired Federal Agents, and which allegedly conducts operations all over the world. The company has no permanent employees except Mr. Mann himself, and a receptionist. Mr. Mann's company is misleading consumers with their advertising. His pseudo organization is made up of subcontractors which he contacts upon acquisition of a case, most of which do not regularly work with the company due to severe incompetence on the part of Mr. Mann, and none of which are affiliated with any government agencies.
Robert Mann also claims that he is a veteran of Special Ops, as reported in a variety of publications and as stated by him television. This is another untruth toted by Mr. Mann in order to mislead consumers into trusting his services. He has never served in any capacity with any branch of Special Operations. Mr. Mann also implies that he was formerly an agent under employ of the Federal Government. This is yet another fabrication invented in order to manipulate the confidence of consumers.
