Meet Private Investigator Julia Robson

Female Private Investigator in Melbourne Australia

Former Policewoman Julia Robson is a licensed female Private Investigator in Melbourne and Director of Online Investigations.

Originating from New Zealand, Julia joined the NZ Police at the early age of 20 before gaining international experience through her work as a Corporate Investigator in the United Kingdom.  During her time in London she travelled throughout Europe conducting undercover surveillance and investigated internal theft, fraud and a range of intellectual property based investigations.

Taking the knowledge learned from her time in Europe and ongoing training in America she has created a unique skill and niche expertise in the online investigation arena, and is widely identified as Australasia’s premier Internet Profiler.  She is now a Private Investigator based in Melbourne.

In June 2011, on recognising the growing popularity of individuals using Internet dating sites, she created from scratch the service Cupidscreen – a specific service offering background checks and investigative services for users of online dating. Her success with this service included her travelling to Malaysia to assist with the arrest of a Nigerian based crime ring operating online.

For seven years Julia tracked a sinister conman around the world who initially came under her radar in December 2011.  Her tenacity saw her speaking with victims in Australia, Europe and the United States before finally locating him in New Zealand and having him arrested in 2018.  She went on to write a seven part podcast about the case, before teaming up with Fremantle Media to create “Chasing Charlie” – a #1 podcast in Australia and New Zealand and charted in the top 60 of all podcasts in the United Kingdom.

Julia is also known for her media work as the Investigator on Network TEN’s series Long Lost Family, Foxtel’s Real Housewives of Sydney and the “PI Case Files”, a weekly segment which aired on Mix FM – resulting in their number 1 ratings for the first time ever.

As a licensed investigator Julia holds a Certificate III in Investigations, as well as a Certificate IV in Security and Risk Management and a Diploma in Policing.  She is an accredited Certified Cyber Intelligence Professional (CCIP), Certified Cyber Intelligence Investigator (CCII) and undertook OSINT training in California and through the SANS Institute.
