How you can prove your spouse is engaged in an extramarital affair and Signs of a cheating spouse.

Extramarital Affair:  a relationship between a married person and someone other than their spouse.

After you find out that your significant other has been involved with someone else, you almost feel like there was a neon sign flashing above their head, it was so obvious, rear view thinking allows us to see things as they were, not at the moment.

That Neon Light can be a variation of many signs, it can be the feeling in your gut when you realize something is different, something has changed.  Maybe it’s the lack of attention, or maybe it’s the extra attention being paid upon you so you won’t suspect anything.  It can be the lack of communication or the constant communication that allows him or her to determine [...]

Insurance Beneficiaries and Forensics Data Recovery

Insurance Companies and Law Firms deal with very controversial subject matters.  And usually when we are asked to conduct an Investigation for an Insurance Company, we can be assured there is an attorney on the other side.

We were contacted by a Major Insurance Company regarding an apparent suicide, the coroner and the police department both stated the insured committed suicide, but yet the family couldn’t believe he would take his own life.  There was just too much, they felt, he had to live for.  There was no suicide note, no indication that he was depressed and he was supposed to announce his engagement in less than a week.  He and his girlfriend had recently returned from a Caribbean vacation and become engaged during the [...]

Dirty Little Secrets Hidden on Cell Phones

Some people are very protective of their information on the cellular devices. In many cases, marriages end by them. I’m not talking about too much texting or surfing, I’m referring to those secret texts and emails, along with photos. If your spouse is hiding his or her phone from you, or has it password protected and you can’t gain access to it, there is a reason. Either they are required if it is an employer issued device or they are hiding something they just don’t want you to see.

Let’s say you get access to their phone, you even have done some private investigation and learned their passcode and you still don’t see anything incriminating on the phone, but you know they are up to [...]

    Cell Phones Are Compact Computers with the ability to be “Hacked”

Cell Phones Are Compact Computers with the ability to be “Hacked”

Remember when your “Mobile Phone” was in a case as big as a small brief case and each call cost you a couple of dollars per minute and not cents? You were among a very elite if you had a “Mobile Phone” back in the day. Today, it is reported that more than 91% of adults in a survey of over 2,500 people own cell phones. They are replacing landlines, GPS Devices and tablets and many times every member in the family is linked to their own cellular device. A cell phone allows the user to make calls, send text message and emails, surf the web, schedule to wake you up, remind you of appointments and even goggle answers to questions when in a [...]

Computer Forensics - A Powerful Tool in Investigations

Long before there were computers, internet connection and mobile phones, words were written by hand, pen/pencil and paper. If you made a mistake you would wad up the paper, throw it in the trash and start all over again, or use your trusty eraser and change the wording. Or you could use your “typewriter” and type a letter, same applied, if you made a mistake you would rip the paper out, roll in a new sheet and start all over. And if you had to research anything, you headed off to the library and conducted manual searches. If you didn’t check out a book, no one knew that you even opened up a book or copied the information.

What you did on pen and paper [...]

    Is the Purchase of a Smartwatch Setting You up for Digital Forensics Services?

Is the Purchase of a Smartwatch Setting You up for Digital Forensics Services?

Who do you know with one of the smart, sleek, new smartwatches? Ohhh. So Cool! And so vulnerable to hacking. More so than a smartphone or a tablet.

Why?

A recent article in the Christian Post explains. According to a recent study by Dr. Frank Breitinger, associate director of the University of New Haven Cyber Forensics Research and Education Group in Connecticut, there is a “lack of encryption and an unsecure authentication system” in all the smartwatches they tested.

In the study they tried to infiltrate the devices to get a variety of information such as emails, calendars, messages, health, fitness and financial data. In all cases, if the information was on the device, they were able to get it!

Computer forensics experts like those at International Investigators [...]

Are You Aware of What You’re Leaving on That Sim Card?

The good old factory reset has done enough for you to get rid of that old phone, right? NOTHING could be less true! And that could be enough to bring your business, your marriage or your financial life down for good.

Let me explain.

So many people are willing to donate – or sell – their old phones when the newest version arrives on their doorstep.

The cellphone expert here at International Investigators knows that all he has to do is run a little sim card forensics and he can collect all sorts of data from that donated phone. And it’s not just a jumble of code, no, it’s phone numbers, names, messages and personal information.

There was a blog post we stumbled across online where a man [...]

Cell Phone Forensics and the Little Thumbprint

Here at International Investigators we conduct a lot of mobile device forensics. We have included cellular location evidence in our findings and used cellular tower triangulation, too. Of course, cell phone spying is a continuing issue and we do a lot of cell phone hack detection and removal of the mobile spy.

Wireless forensics include cell phone records analysis and cell phone tracking. We take pride in the fact that we are on the cutting edge and have so much experience that we have “seen it all.”

That’s why when we read an article about a group of armed robbers on the rampage in the Cleveland area and saw how cell phone forensics were used to catch them we were not surprised.

One of the robbers was [...]
