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 [...]

    And If Hiding Assets Wasn’t Bad Enough, He Also Bugged Her Phone

And If Hiding Assets Wasn’t Bad Enough, He Also Bugged Her Phone

It was on a rainy day in March when Cleo realized something just wasn’t right with her phone.  She had been on various websites throughout the day looking for ideas for her newest project and the phone kept getting bogged down; this was the way she described how slow the phone reacted to surfing the web.  She also stated at times the phone would get hot to the touch and the battery life kept getting shorter and shorter, even though she had made sure the battery was almost drained before charging it.

When Cleo brought the phone to our office she informed us she was in the middle of a child custody case and was sure her ex-husband had a hand in the mysterious events [...]

Conducting a background investigation upon someone may seem fairly simple these days because so much information is now online and so many courts allow access to their records.  Many times you have to have some type of subscription to access more detailed information.  There are many sites online that allow you to run a name, hopefully the name you put through their system isn’t common, but if it is, you could be getting information on multiple individuals who share that name, even though they may have different dates of birth.

International Investigators conduct background checks and perform due diligence research for the private sector and for many businesses and corporations.  Many times a company will take the word of a prospective employee: they have never [...]

When I Say I Do!

Marriage:

1 a (1) : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2) : the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage.

Above is the definition of marriage, and into today’s society marriage can be between a man and a woman, a woman and a woman and a man and a man.  The definition doesn’t define each person who enters into a contractual relationship; it just explains the participants and nothing else.  Marriage is more than a contract, it is a relationship between two people who come together believing they know each other, that the words [...]

Is it Employee Embezzlement?

A very depressed-looking business owner came in for an appointment at International Investigators. We are accustomed to clients or prospective clients arriving emotionally charged, either very angry or hurt, but they don’t usually act like this gentleman.

Once talking, he explained that he was “darn near just ready to chuck it all in.” He said he was just confounded by what he knew was going on in his company. He just needed proof of it and confirmation of how deep the damage went.

Whew. He explained that because his company dealt with many clients coming in for training from out of town, he maintained an apartment for their use doing their stay. It was fully furnished and maintained. What he had discovered was that it had [...]
