Surveillance Investigation: Golf, midlife crisis and affairs

Surveillance has become a lot cheaper and more accurate to do. In the old days you would sit for days waiting for people to do something. What if you could just be present just when you could catch them in the act and know where to be. This would cut down the time wasted on manual surveillance and get on with other jobs, cut down the cost of a job for a client, making my services a lot more affordable. Especially for the types of job that effect the average punter with a limited budget. That’s when the new tools of the trade come in handy. I recently got a call from a Mrs Smith (not her real...

The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective Cheaters

Want to cheat on your partner and get away with it? It’s not as easy as you think. However, according to Croydon Private Investigator Jorge Salgado-Reyes – a man who specialises in catching people “at it” – there are certain things you can do to reduce your chances of being found out: (1) Get a pay-as-you-go phone: mobile phone records are now the #1 way cheaters get caught. Pay-as-you-go means no itemised bills and, if you delete flirty texts and your call records, you’ll cover your phone tracks. (2) Give your lover a fake name: suspicious partners are likely to go through your phone...

Thieving little Britons?

More than three quarters of workers have stolen from their current or previous places of work, according to new research.

Tracking and the law

Having attended the WAPI Seminar on Saturday 19th November 2011, I was blown away by the second speaker Mr David Swarbrick’s presentation on Hacking, Blagging, Bugging & Tracking.  The presentation was a 3 hour affair and it was heavy going at times. I want to focus on the tracking part of the presentation. It is quite clear that if you combine client instructions (written or digitally transmitted) that identify a person and a vehicle and then you deploy any type of tracker, the information gathered by the tracker becomes personal data as defined by the Data Protection Act 1998.

Stalking the Stalkers

He’d come back. Silent, threatening, watching her silhouette through the curtains a she picked up the phone. “Are you there?” she said. “Yes”, I replied. “Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere”. I refocused the camera on the ex-husband, capturing the evidence on DVR with my PTZ (pan tilt & zoom) camera system. Little does he know that the innocuous vehicle parked on the corner is a covert camera platform and I’m recording his every move while staying safely out of sight and completing a surveillance log from the comfort of the back seat. He continues to stand on the corner...
