Timothy Burchell opened his UK Private Investigators agency in 1997 in London. For more than twenty years, his team has investigated countless cases ofinfidelity.

He explains that in most cases, people contact him because they have noticed a change in behavior in their partner. “There are clear signs of deception, reveals Burchell. But sometimes they can be as subtle as a change in perfume or aftershave.”

But how do investigators get evidence? You may have in mind the image of a man wearing a trench coat with a camera, but today technology has changed the profession of private detective dramatically.

Three key steps

Unmasking infidelity requires three steps. The first is to conduct a investigation complete on the subject: from his career to his finances through his work colleagues and his travel plans. “We spend a lot of our time going through a person’s background looking for things to worry about,” says Don Aviv, a former Mossad agent turned private detective.

The second point concerns the surveillance physical. Harry Kazakian, founder of USA Express Legal & Investigative Services, asks the suspicious partner for photos, recurring locations and details about the subject’s car. He also asks for the schedule of the latter, in order to facilitate the shadowing. “We use cars and motorbikes with cameras so you can see everything.”

Finally, the last step is to trap the subject. Depending on the situation, Kazakian sometimes sends an officer to pick up the individual. The meeting is discreetly filmed and then the video is sent to the client. This strategy is more useful for proving that a person is not, in fact, cheating.

Don Aviv says his clients rarely seek to prove infidelity for sentimental reasons. Most of them aim to obtain a evidence for a legal battle. “Infidelity itself seems to be a lesser issue for our clients, especially when finances or the safety of children are at stake,” describes the former Mossad agent.

Sometimes detectives find no evidence of deception. In this case, they look no further. Nevertheless, Tommy Burchell asserts that all infidels are eventually exposed: “People think they’re low key, but we’ve been in the business for years and we’re always one step ahead.”
