How Can I Prove My Innocence?

Often someone is accused or alleged to have conducted an act, or been involved in an activity they state they had no part in, or they are blamed for words they did not say.  Many times, the actions and words of an individual can be believed, but what happens when there is doubt?  How can the truth be determined?  There are ways to obtain the facts.  Here are some suggestions that International Investigators utilize in obtaining the truth.

Polygraph Examination or a VSA (Voice Stress Analysis) to determine deception or non-deception. A Polygraph requires an individual to be hooked up to monitor three physical reactions, sweat, using electrodes attached to a finger, heart rate and blood pressure through an arm cuff and breathing through [...]

Do I Need to Hire a Private Investigator?

Life Happens…sometimes we oversee our path and other times we are influenced by choices made by others. When situations arise out of our control and cannot be handled from within, we reach out for help. International Investigators can be that source to help with life-changing matters.

Extraction of 45 Seconds of Time Recovered

We have, in the past, written blogs regarding Forensic Phone Data Extractions and cell phone data recovery for hundreds of cases.  There are requests relating to FCC Regulations, deleted text messages for Divorce and Custody Cases needed for Court, or accidentally deleting information, loss of contacts numbers, call histories, but none compared to the request we received today.  Our Client walked into our office and we were not quite prepared for her request.  It wasn’t because we weren’t capable, it was because this was the first time, we were asked to conduct an Extraction for an emotional need.  She told us her father had passed away almost five years ago and after his passing, she realized he had left a voicemail for her that [...]

A Matter of Minutes Set the Falsely Accused Free

We recently conducted a case that was a bit out of the ordinary.  We were not requested to conduct surveillances, research assets or verify someone’s background.  We were hired to assist an attorney in proving if his Client, James, who had previously conducted his case Pro Se, was guilty of aggravated assault and rape.  His Client, Our Client’s son, thought he could defend himself in the court of law to prove his innocence.  When he did not appear for a court date, he was arrested for contempt of court and from that point on remained in jail until the trial.  Of course, our Client, his father, immediately retained the services of an attorney, but the court date was approaching, so the Client also retained [...]

Ooops! I Deleted That!

Deletion of information!  Have you ever accidentally deleted a text message, or a string of messages or wanted to delete a certain text and you deleted the string of messages?  How about those photos you took and deleted them prior to downloading to a cloud or voicemail messages you saved for one reason or another and then deleted?

In all these instances, whether you accidentally or purposely made those deletions and then you needed them, and they were gone, we can retrieve it for you.

Sure, you could get a printout from your carrier that you sent and received a text message, or you made or received a call from a certain telephone number, but you cannot obtain the content of the text message, nor the [...]

Why Have Your Cell Phone Data Forensically Extracted?

There are many reasons an individual, attorney or a company would request an extraction from a device.

An accusation of cheating on your spouse or even worse you suspect your spouse of being unfaithful can likely be addressed by analyzing cellular user data. More than likely there is sufficient evidence on of your cellular devices to either give credibility for or against the accusation. Now, what if the smoking gun was a GPS location saved in a temporary folder destined to soon be deleted? Or what if the text messages between a cheating spouse and their fling have been deleted? Our digital forensics software easily carves out deleted data and GPS location data from phones, but not all phones keep deleted user data the same [...]

Ostriches Don’t Get a Fair Deal in a Divorce

For those of us who have been divorced, we understand the process and procedures.  We know that we either represent ourselves (which could create problems during and after the divorce) or we retain the services of a reputable law firm (which prevents the pro-se issues).  We enter into a marriage full of hope and dreams and unfortunately, we are only in control of half of that relationship.  We enter into a divorce with the expectation to right the wrongs and in many cases, there are activities that need to be investigated.  The he/said she/said of the relationship holds little weight in court.  Documented behavior and actions are required.  Not all divorces are complicated, but in relationships that end due to deceit, hiring an investigative [...]

Cellular Forensic Data Extraction Solved the Puzzle

When Arthur contacted us at International Investigators, he was perplexed about his wife of 27 years whose personality had changed, her marital demeanor had changed, her sexual needs seemed to require more of an aggressive manner and her choice of provocative clothing was different than her previously conservative nature.  She was currently the breadwinner; he was the stay-at-home husband for the last three years taking care of their five children, two of whom were in college and the other three in high school.   She was a high-powered executive with a big corporation and traveled quite frequently on business.  Arthur equated the changes to a possible affair.  Her company cell phone was usually by her side.   Occasionally Arthur had the opportunity to scroll through the emails [...]

There is Light in the Darkness of a Marriage, You Just Have to Open Your Eyes

We recently got a call for a request for lie detection testing due to a spy on cell case.  According to Luann, her husband of 20 years had been unfaithful for years.  She was certain he had installed some type of cell spyware on her phone so that he could determine where she was, allowing him the opportunity to meet up with his lover.  She also inquired into a cheating spouse investigator watching where he goes and with whom he spends his free time with.  She even accused him of stashing away money so he could spend it on his girlfriend and wanted a financial investigation completed.  She also accused him of employee embezzlement.  Her frustration level was high and she demanded immediate results [...]

Verbal or Written Communications are Not Always Private

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures, sometimes called TSCM Sweeps, debugging, wiretap detection or just plain old “sweeps”.  With the advent of cellphones, VOIP phones, computer Skype, FaceTime, go-to-meeting and the many other ways of communication, illegal eavesdropping has become easily available to those who are curious.  Google the internet for mobile phone bugging and you will find many “offshore” providers that sell highly sophisticated cell phone spy software for usually less than a hundred bucks.  Carefully read the advertising material posted on these sites and you will find that they guarantee that the spy on cell software can’t be found.  They provide a detailed tutorial explaining how to remotely install phone spying software on a target phone.  Electronic eavesdropping is illegal in the United States and [...]
