infidelity/Cheater Investigations

We understand that hiring a private investigator may be the hardest decision you may ever make…and should not be taken lightly.

R7 understands that domestic investigations can be emotionally distressing and we guarantee a discreet and confidential investigation. We conduct surveillance of spousal or teen activity, conduct background investigations of domestic employees and investigate cases of suspected elder abuse. In elder abuse investigations, we consult with medical doctors who assist in analyzing all data recovered. In all of our investigations, we use the latest investigative technology and provide a comprehensive report that allows you to make informed decisions.

Signs of Infidelity

Expectations: Another thing that we recommend is that you keep your expectations in the real world and not in Hollywood. For every case that a private investigator gets a videotape of two people being intimate at a motel or in a car, we have another where we can only follow a spouse to someplace like a large apartment building where they disappear out of sight in some common hallway. For some, this may be enough, but for others who need more information, we may need to conduct additional surveillance and investigative procedures to get more information about where he/she is going or whom they are with. Although this can be frustrating, it is sometimes unavoidable. Other times, your spouse may simply do whatever they said they were going to do: go to the mall, meet a friend for dinner, visit a relative. Our professional field investigators capture a subject’s activities discreetly and accurately. Unlike many others, we don’t limit our surveillance to what can be seen from the window of a car. All of our operatives are equipped with state-of-the-art long-range and hidden video cameras, giving us the ability to observe activity in public places, in rural areas, and at the mall. The only thing we cannot do is control what your partner will do or where they will go!

Being Discreet: Although you may not think that your cheating spouse would ever suspect that someone would be watching them, the majority of cheaters are well aware of the potential for someone, likely you, to be watching them. Cheating feels risky and exciting and watching over your shoulder is part of what all cheaters seem to do. Other times, the cheater is involved with someone else who is cheating making matters worse. There are also people, possibly like your spouse, who are just aggressive drivers, looking out for the police, extremely aware of their surroundings and all sorts of other habits which make pursuit more difficult. To deal with this, the private investigator may use multiple vehicles and investigators to get the job done right. This costs more, but two people can do a better job than one at following someone in traffic, in public places and anywhere else. Please understand that using multiple investigators on surveillance is the norm. R7 adheres to all Federal Privacy Laws.

Timing: Although your spouse or significant other may spontaneously leave the house, likely meet the other person, all private investigators have multiple clients and lives outside of work. Sometimes our investigators will have another matter scheduled at that moment and we may not be able to initiate surveillance at extremely short notice. You have our promise that if it is possible, we will be there for you, but also try and understand if we cannot be available 24 hours a day.

Evidence: Today, almost all investigators utilize video cameras to capture evidence. The days where an investigator’s word was all you needed are gone. Videotape is more effective and does not lie. Make sure the investigator you work with has the proper equipment to capture evidence both from a car and inside a hotel, restaurant, bar or other public domain. Hidden, body-worn cameras are standard equipment for all of our investigators. If you are going to be involved in a divorce, understand that your investigator may need to testify about the video and the surveillance. Expect that he or she will charge you for their time in court. This is normal for experts.

Important Information about Private Investigations:

If you feel that your husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on you, be sure to tell us everything. As your private detective, we are only able to get you the proof and evidence you need if you tell us the whole story. Anything less can have a dramatic effect on our ability to get you the information you seek. Although R7 is among the best private investigators in the industry specializing in infidelity and cheating cases, we are not magicians! We cannot make things exist that don’t. We cannot find infidelity where it does not exist and sometimes, despite signs to the contrary, there is no infidelity or it is too infrequent or too well hidden to be found.

Accordingly, we do not guarantee any outcome in any case.

Criminal Investigations

R7 can assist the Police Department or attorney with your criminal investigation and protect your interests. We will ensure that all investigative measures are initiated and all investigative avenues are explored. If you are the subject of a police investigation, we can provide you with information to assist in your defense.

Clients have expressed concern that once a police agency had reached a decision not to proceed with an investigation, that was that. Although we certainly strive to maintain a strong working relationship with law enforcement agencies, there are many instances in which manpower is a police agency issue. However, there are alternatives available.

Upon the client’s request, all police reports will be reviewed and if necessary, through personal interviews will be conducted with witnesses and victims in any criminal case. Any discrepancies in handwritten statements taken from victims or witnesses not noted in police reports would be documented and turned over to the original investigating agency. This would also be the case in the discovery of newly identified witnesses. Any items of evidentiary value located during the scope of our investigation would be photographed and the investigating agency would be notified immediately.

At the conclusion of the investigation, the client will be provided with detailed written reports to be utilized for criminal proceedings. As with any of our investigative services offered, the client’s confidentiality is always assured.

As with any investigative service that we offer, we are always available to testify in a court of law as to the results of the investigation conducted.

Telephone Security Tips

Telephone Security Tips by Magic Jack

Fraud attempts today can take many forms: From phone calls, emails, pop-up advertisements, and even search engine results, malicious entities are constantly finding new ways to catch unsuspecting individuals off guard.

In an effort to fight these bad actors, we would like to offer some helpful tips on how to identify (and protect yourself!) from the fraudulent activity you may encounter both on- and offline.

Avoid phony calls!

If you receive an unsolicited, unexpected phone call from a company – even one you recognize or receive services through – requesting personal information such as your credit card number, bank information, login credentials, or social security number, DO NOT provide the information. Instead, hang up, retrieve the company’s contact information from a reliable source (such as their official website, product packaging, or contact information), and reach out to them via one of their official channels. By contacting the company via a legitimate, verified avenue, you are able to ensure you are communicating with the intended party.

Do not feel pressured to pick up calls from unknown numbers (especially if the area code is not one that you recognize, or if the caller ID is blocked); if the message is important, the caller will likely leave a voicemail.

Be wary of individuals guiding you to websites or having you download files under the guise of providing “technical support,” or granting remote access to your computer.

Emails can be deceiving!

One of the most commonly-used avenues for unscrupulous individuals, emails can be made to look authentic in many ways – using trusted branding, urgent messaging, and coming from genuine-appearing addresses. These types of emails can also appear to come from personal friends or even family.

When you receive a new, unsolicited email, always proceed with a skeptical eye. Attached files and links can look legitimate, but may lead to unwanted malware. Avoid clicking on links contained in this type of email – instead, manually navigate to the website via your favorite web browser to reach the intended web page.

If you are uncertain as to whether an email is authentic, reach out to the person or company who sent the email directly using contact information from a reliable source (such as a company’s official website, product packaging, or contact information) to verify its contents.

Be wary of imposter results!

While search engines can be a helpful tool, be sure to carefully scrutinize the results that are displayed before you click any links. Ads and other illegitimate links can appear to be associated with authentic websites but instead lead to copycat or other malicious sites.
