Electronic Bugs And Listening Devices, Are They Tracking You?

Technical Sweep Countermeasures (TSCM).  We have many Clients who call for a TSCM service to ensure their home or office are safe to discuss private conversations.  A TSCM sweep is conducted to determine if there are any covert (not openly acknowledge or displayed) audio or video devices within a home or business. Requesting a listening device detection or an electronic bug detection can expose various amounts of spyware that is concealed within normal products. For example, these types of devices could be a charger for a cellphone or computer with the capability to power your technology and spy on you at the same time, smoke detectors that will function properly, and listening devices that can be installed into products you welcome into your home [...]

Divorce Property Division, Are You Sure You’re Getting Your Half of The Assets?

There have been many songs written about “Breakups” and “Divorces” where one party is emotionally more affected than the other.  It doesn’t matter if love is lost, someone has an extra marital affair or life choices is the cause, one party may either be surprised by the decision or has seen it coming for a while.  When love is lost, the divorce may be an easy process, but if one party has wronged the other, there may be ramifications for the party who made the decision to quit the marriage. Like the old saying goes:  Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.1

Men or women may be blind-sided when they are asked for a divorce.  They didn’t realize there were issues in the relationship; [...]

Pattern Recognition, Toilet Paper & Observations from Your Private Investigators

It doesn’t take an investigator to determine what is an essential business and what is a non-essential business, nor does it take an investigator to observe the closed signs on business doors, the empty parking lots around the city or the lack of traffic.  The decrease in activity is obvious.  From our observation, what has increased is the number of emails that are asking us to make purchases for various goods and services, but don’t expect to get your hands on certain paper products.

What’s up with individuals hoarding toilet paper, cleaning supplies, or paper products in general, to include various medical supplies needed for health care workers?  How much disinfecting is needed in one household?  We’ve racked our brains here trying to come up [...]

Situations and Ways of Obtaining Background Check Information; Is it Ethical?

Whenever there is an election year, a downward spiral in our economy, and a potentially dangerous outbreak, such as the coronavirus, we are all affected.  We hold on to the reporter’s words, we fact find and we communicate our concerns with one another.  The water cooler talk at work is topic-specific depending on what is happening in the world.  We are so focused on what may or may not affect us regarding world events, we let our guards down regarding day to day life.  All we want is to protect our families, our jobs, and make sure that we take every precaution to avoid any type of catastrophe. Basically, we attempt to take measures to avoid being negatively affected.

How A Private Investigator Can Help In Your Child Custody Case?

Custody and Divorce cases are probably the most difficult cases to investigate.  A quote by Jonathan Edwards: “There are always two sides to every story” and indeed there are.  Between both lies the truth.

In this blog we will concentrate on “Custody”:  Usually the court awards custody prior to the final decree when the divorce is final, or at the original custody hearing. When physical custody is awarded to a sole parent it has either been a joint decision or one parent has been proven in court to be unfit.  Unfit could suggest that one parent isn’t financially able to care for the children on a fulltime basis, or that one parent isn’t employed, doesn’t have proper living quarters, etc.  Additionally, unfit could indicate an [...]

Why To Hire A Professional To Perform A Personal Background Check When You Can Find “All Of The Info” Online Yourself?

Life gives us choices, to remain single, to get married, to buy that business, to obtain a degree or choose a life career, and in each life choice there are situations and circumstances that may arise that create doubt, the need to find the truth. I blog a lot about truth! It’s my area of my expertise being a private investigator. I have been single; I have been married and I have started a business and with all, I have had the opportunity to easily find the answers to my questions or concerns. I had the tools to determine what was true and what was not. Not so different as being an electrician and fixing wiring problems, or a plumber and unclogging a sink, [...]

Why would you need your phone forensically extracted and analyzed?  Here are a few reasons to do so.

Example 1: Deletion of Personal Information:
