My cheating partner’s phone gave him away

A private detective can confirm your suspicions of a cheating partner

We were contacted by a female client in Glasgow who had become suspicious of her fiancé because of the way he was acting with his mobile phone.  With her permission, we have reprinted the client’s own words below.

“My fiance was acting strange towards me and being very protective of his mobile phone.  He was constantly texting and I suspected that he was seeing a work colleague.  I called Boothroyds and received a sympathetic ear.  They gave me sound advice on how to find out if he was cheating on me.”

As private detectives we’re familiar with the stress, worry and heart ache that comes when you suspect your partner of cheating.  Our service is discreet, confidential and sympathetic.

In this case we outlined a number of options available to the client and within a few days of surveillance we confirmed the client’s suspicions.   The client was devastated but later commented, “The detective was very sensitive and supportive.  I have had to move on but I am grateful for the help and support I received.”

Has your partner’s behaviour changed recently?  Not all changes in behaviour are related to cheating and in one case we discovered that our client’s spouse was in fact displaying the early symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Surveillance brings fly tipping blight to an end

Private investigator surveillance techniques assist local councils

As private investigators we are often hired by local councils to monitor and provide evidence of anti-social behaviour.  In this instance we were asked to provide surveillance of a site experiencing fly tipping on an industrial scale.

The site in question was secured by gates enclosing the yard where the fly tipping was taking place.  We have a particular expertise in surveillance investigations and to catch the fly tippers we devised an innovative weatherproof hidden camera system deployed in a pile of rubble, affectionately nicknamed ‘Boothroyd’s bricks’.

The hidden camera footage identified a huge lorry arrive at 5 o’clock in the morning, open the gates and dump its contents – a huge pile of rubbish.  The lorry had a foreign number plate but a west of Scotland telephone number featured on its cab door.  It turned out this was an innovative way for a skip hire company to off-load the rubbish it had been paid to collect.

As a result of the evidence our surveillance provided the company was sued for the £100,000 clean up bill and received the undivided attention of the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency.

Fraud investigation cuts insurances losses

Fraud investigations to cut private & corporate loss

On a number of occasions our investigation services have been called on by insurance companies, particularly in relation to fraud.

In this case we were asked to investigate a person suspected of working while claiming a substantial monthly amount on an insurance policy covering them for being made redundant.

Our surveillance operatives followed the subject who was discovered to be working on a daily basis as a plasterer.  He was clearly intentionally defrauding the insurance company and on the basis of our evidence all payouts were halted and further losses on this case were prevented.

Surveillance by hidden camera cuts theft

Professional surveillance techniques are shown to cut losses

We were approached by a corporate client whose gaming machine business was suffering unexplained cash shortages.

The client commented “Being a cash business we noted shortages in our gaming machines and suspected the service engineer of stealing money when he visited.  We asked Boothroyds for help and they amazingly managed to hide a camera in the machine.”

As private investigators we have particular expertise in the field of covert surveillance  and in this case we were able to hide a camera within a gaming machine.

Within in a short period of time the culprit was caught on camera and the problem was solved.  Our client is no longer losing money as a result of theft from his gaming machines.

My spouse wasn’t cheating

Matrimonial investigation reveals no infidelity

Our investigators are contacted almost daily by spouses in distress, feeling overwhelmed by suspicions that their spouse is cheating on them.

We see our job as delivering peace of mind because whatever the outcome, when our investigation is complete, at least you’ll know the truth.

In this case we were contacted by a lady in Glasgow, concerned by the changes in behaviour she was seeing in her husband.

Our client comments “My husband seemed to be making regular withdrawals from his bank and was acting very strangely.  I contacted Boothroyds and they explained the different ways to see what was going on.

I thought my husband had developed some sort of illicit habit, was seeing someone else or was hiding something from his distant past.   The investigators discovered that he was actually displaying signs of Alzheimer’s disease.

The matter was handled very delicately and I was able to get my husband the medical help he needed. I was grateful for the very caring and discrete approach that was taken.”

Dealing with suspicions of infidelity

Infidelity investigations can help you deal with your suspicions

As investigators we deal with clients across the UK and in this instance our client was based near Reading.

The lady called because she suspected her spouse was being unfaithful but was especially nervous because she hadn’t hired a private investigator before and didn’t know what to expect.

The client says “When I made the call to Boothroyds I was immediately put at ease by the investigator who talked me through the circumstances after which we agreed on the most cost effective way to find out what was going on.”

Within two days and using a combination of surveillance and vehicle tracking we were able to confirm our client’s suspicions.  We presented both photographic and video evidence as part of our service.  Our client commented, “I was even given sound advice as to how to deal with the situation.  I received a very professional evidence package.”

Surveillance investigations for brand protection

Surveillance investigation helps reduce the sale of pirated goods

We’re known within the industry for our experience in covert and undercover operations relating to the dealing of pirate goods on a large scale.

In this particular case we identified three separate locations where illicit goods were being prepared for sale at markets in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Working on behalf of our clients, the rights holders, we liaised with the police and trading standards officers resulting in successful raids conducted under warrant where the offenders were detected, arrested, and charged.  One of the sting operations reaped success within 18 hours of us receiving instructions from the client.

Fly tipping prosecutions for local authorities

Our surveillance investigations help local authorities cut costs

We were hired by a local authority to obtain evidence against the perpetrators of large scale fly tipping, an offence which costs local authorities considerable sums to clean up.

Using our particular expertise in the field of surveillance we devised a novel but robust method of surveilling the site over an extended period of time.  We were able to catch on camera and identify repeat offenders who were dumping tonnes of waste at a time.

Our hidden cameras were deployed in a hostile area yet went undetected by numerous individuals during the time they were in use.  The cameras recorded not only the actions of the fly tippers but also those of a number of additional unsavoury individuals, including arsonists and car theifs to name but a few.

Bespoke hidden cameras cut loss from theft

Hidden camera surveillance techniques can cut your losses

Our investigators have conducted hidden camera operations for numerous clients and try to avoid some methods which in our opinion have become somewhat clichéd.

In one instance while investigating large scale cash thefts we were challenged with introducing a hidden camera into an area which was extremely sterile, with little opportunity to hide a camera.  The only place that would provide a suitable view was in wooden furniture within the cash store.

A camera was embedded into similar piece of pine wood with the lens peering through a knot in the wood.  The wood was then added to an appropriate place in the structure allowing the thief to be observed from within a managers office.

On a similar installation we caught a thief who stole in excess of £34,000 in two visits.

We also installed a hidden camera to catch a sneaky thief stealing cash from colleagues.  The camera was installed on a Sunday evening awaiting the staff arriving at 9am the following Monday morning.

In what is probably a record, the thief struck and was detected at 9.35am.

The client dealt with the matter swiftly and found the thief to be a long established and trusted employee who would have been a  long way down any list of suspects.

Police arrests due to sting operations

Our investigatons often result in criminal prosecutions

A local newspaper, acting in the public interest, asked for our help to catch thieves selling stolen goods.

A second-hand goods shop was set up in an attempt to catch the thieves.  Using surveillance, including hidden cameras and microphones, a number of the thieves were caught in the act of handling stolen goods. Prosecutions then followed when the journalist shared the evidence with the police.

With specialist equipment and expert operational knowledge gained from our time in the police and the military, our undercover operations have an exceptional success rate.
