hiding infidelityMen and women get caught cheating every day, but many of them go to extraordinary lengths to avoid detection. With a spouse like this, it takes a professional investigator to know what to look for and how to find the evidence of cheating and document it. Part of the way we do our job is through the use of surveillance, but we also have the knowledge of knowing where to look to find a cheating spouse in the act, no matter how clever they think they are. The following are a few ways they may attempt to avoid detection.

They’ll Avoid Abrupt Changes

A cheating spouse is often smart enough to make no abrupt changes in their life because this is a red flag, and they know it. A man can say he is working late, but cannot make a habit of this. A woman may claim she is having a girls’ night out, but will be careful not to do this too many times.

Using Separate Cell Phones & Accounts

A separate phone that you don’t know about will solve the problem of getting caught receiving a phone call from the “other” man or woman. Another common behavior is to keep their current phone, but keep it locked, so no one else can answer or use the phone in any way.

A secret email address that you are completely unaware of is often created to be used for all correspondence with their secret lover. It is simply too easy to get caught using their normal email account.

Cash is Their Friend

A cheating spouse who is careful would not want to be caught with a credit card statement. A motel used for a rendezvous will be paid for in cash. This is true with dinners and other money spent on their lover.

They May Travel

One problem with cheating on a spouse is the fact that the cheater can be seen by their spouse’s friend or relative. Many people are caught cheating in this manner. For this reason, a cheating spouse may drive many miles to meet his or her lover. When cheating at a great distance from home, the chances of being spotted by someone familiar is greatly reduced.

They Won’t Tell Even Their Friends

They will confide in few if any people. This includes friend and coworkers. The fewer people who know about the affair, the less the chance a spouse will have of finding out about the affair. Even though it may be tempting to tell someone close to them, they are unlikely to.

It is important to understand that what may appear to be a clever cheating spouse covering up an affair may be a behavior that is completely innocent. This is why it is imperative to have the services of a private investigator. If your spouse is engaged in infidelity, we can verify your suspicions of cheating with solid evidence.

Keep in mind that you may be wrong, so if you have suspicions, do not confront your spouse about them. Simply give us a call, so we can consult with you about your situation. If you spouse is cheating on you, we can provide you with the evidence help you need.
