Are you ready to face proof that you’re living with a cheater?

Suspecting that your spouse is cheating is a devastating thought pattern to get caught up in, one that causes untold pain for anyone facing the possibility of it being true, but what’s worse? Suspecting the worst, or dealing with what could be shattering truth?

Are you just imagining it?

Often when the relationship between two people changes, it’s easy to start suspecting the worst, but it’s best to bear in mind that the change in your spouse does not necessarily mean he or she is cheating. However, it is true that most people guilty of infidelity will deny it, its human nature, and they often deflect it back at you.

If trying to talk about it turns you into the crazy one who is just imagining things it may be time to start listening to that little voice. Your sixth sense keeps nagging at you, telling you that something is wrong but you can’t put your finger on it, but whenever you raise the subject you’re told you’re imagining things

The only way to know whether or not your spouse is cheating on you is to step into the unknown and find proof, but not to do it on your own or through friends and family.

Gathering evidence of infidelity on a cheating spouse on your own is fraught with emotional tension that could escalate into something dangerous if you’re not very careful, especially if you’re heading for a divorce.

This is a job best left to a professional investigator, one that’s highly trained and experienced, and who’ll guide you through these challenging and uncharted waters with the sensitivity you’re going to need during the course of the investigation.

Some of the signs that could point to infidelity include your spouse, but please bear in mind that this is not a definitive way to gauge whether you’re being cheated on or not:

  • Becoming secretive when calls are made or received
  • Deleting text messages or emails immediately
  • Spending considerably more time on the computer for no specific reason
  • Spending more time working late
  • Spending more time away on trips for work
  • A change in perfume or after shave
  • Paying more attention to their appearance than before
  • Stonewalling you when you try to talk about things and cutting off communication with you
  • Inexplicable behavioural changes
  • Lack of interest in doing anything with you
  • Becoming more secretive and unavailable, whether physically present or not

There are more signs than these that’ll give you a hint that your spouse or partner is cheating on you, but you can be pretty sure that if your gut tells you something is wrong, it more than likely is.

None of us wants to even entertain words like affair, infidelity or adultery, but it happens, as we all know, and, if you want to hang on to your sanity, let a professional either set your mind at ease by providing proof you’re not being cheated on, or to provide the painful proof of infidelity.

According to statistics, 85% of people who suspect infidelity are generally spot on with their suspicions, a sad but true look at cheating in the 21st century!

The age of mobile technology has made cheating a lot easier, with online cheating taking its own place centre stage today.  A partner or spouse cheating online is every bit as damaging to any relationship, as one in which a spouse is physically involved in an extramarital affair! It’s really just one small step to meeting the cyber would-be lover to make it a physical reality!

You can trust the right private investigator with your fears about infidelity

If you’ve plucked up the courage to face truth instead of living with suspicion, no matter how devastating the result may be, it’s best to tackle it with a professional investigative firm that’s the moniker of being the number one cheating spouse detective in South Africa.

King Investigators has handled thousands of cases over the years, turning over every stone to provide honest, reliable proof of infidelity, if that is the case and it’s not your imagination.

As a team of consummate professionals, King Investigators offers a free confidential consultation in an attempt to set your mind at ease about how an investigation would work, before you take the big step towards facing proof of infidelity.

The facts about a Due Diligence Investigation & who to trust with it

Looking at the overall picture of what a Due Diligence Investigation is, one can see that it’s one of the most important things any company can do to protect itself in any financial deal, whether in the process of a merger or the acquisition of a new company.

There are various issues that need to be checked off properly before any merger can be considered and before any papers are signed. It’s a major risk for any business to enter into a merger or to acquire a company that may have been a direct competitor, without having all the facts in hand.

It’s the larger company that has to make sure that a Due Diligence Investigation is carried out, to make sure that they will not end up on the wrong side of books that have been fixed to look great but have no substance to them!

Anything fraudulent about the company to be merged with will come out in the wash of a painstaking Due Diligence Investigation, of that you can be certain.

Here are a few points that make up an in-depth Due Diligence Investigation

From a legal standpoint

It’s essential to make sure that any and all paperwork pertaining to any merger or acquisition be correctly signed and recorded painstakingly, so that not a dot or a tittle in the documents can be called into question and cause unnecessary delays, due to issues on the paperwork that still need to be resolved in order to go forward with the deal.

From a financial standpoint

Is the company you’re merging with or acquiring really making the profits they say they are, or have these numbers been fudged to make it look more attractive?  You need to know the real bottom line of what’s going on with the numbers you’re presented with, which certainly requires an in-depth investigation.

This type of investigation has to be carried out by a private investigator well-versed in the nuances of everything that could be hidden by the company you are acquiring or merging with. They are able to gain access to many resources that would be unavailable to you in gathering business intelligence.

From a credit worthiness standpoint

You need to know as much as is possible about the integrity of good corporate governance, and credit worthiness, of any company you’re acquiring or merging with, in order to make an informed decision.

This is fundamental to making a good investment into the future of your company, and well worth the in-depth scrutiny a private investigator is able to carry out on your behalf, before you commit to anything.

Hire King Investigators to root out white collar crime in the workplace

Now, more than ever before, hiring a private investigations company such as King Investigators to carry out in-depth background checks into potential employees and even potential business partners, has become a vital part of protecting your company, assets and reputation.

With the technology available today, one doesn’t need to be the sharpest pencil in the box to manufacture a past that looks really great on paper, hiding a truth from you that could cause your company untold damage and loss.

We’ve seen it over and over again; people in some of the highest positions of power in business and in politics have been found to have done far more than merely colour outside the lines of truth where it comes to their achievements and qualifications.

Many have even claimed to have degrees that were never earned at all, and it’s as easy as having access to the right information at an academic level.

With people on this level pulling the wool over the eyes of those who employ them, how much more can any employee, especially one employed in a sensitive position, do to fool you?

With a virtual shutdown in our economy due to COVID-19, coupled with even higher unemployment rates than ever before, even the most honest people have become susceptible to criminal activities in the workplace, driven by sheer desperation to survive.

In-depth background checks are important, but once an employee is in a position of trust, it becomes difficult to put your finger on why it is that you feel that something isn’t right, whether in inexplicable loss of products or small financial losses that add up to a lot at the end of a year.

Rather than absorbing the cost of ‘small’ crimes in the workplace, nip them in the bud by doing something about it the moment anything seems out of place.

An in-depth background check is a good place to start

Not all companies that fire staff for theft will bother to take the matter any further than the dismissal itself, it’s just too much red tape to go through to take the person to court.  Inevitably what this means is that the next employer is completely unaware of the true background of the person being considered for a position in their company.

This is a situation that happens a lot in positions that involve those handling stock, whether in a warehouse or on the floor of a retail store, as well as those working in the financial departments.

Protecting sensitive company data with the right information about an employee

With the rapid growth in technology, white collar crimes currently cost South African businesses around R40 billion a year, and it’s on the increase, especially when employees are able to cook the books from the comfort of their office chair, in your office!

If you open up sensitive company information to someone newly appointed to a position of trust, it’s best for you to know exactly who’ll be sitting in that hot seat!

This is how confidential client information is stolen and sold for a price, and, it’s also how syndicates get someone into a position of trust in a company, in order to steal secrets about any new developments in products or customer information etc.

There’s a whole world of corporate espionage out there that’s alive and well, getting better every day, so what’s important is to make sure that you’ve covered all your bases by regularly reviewing the staff who have access to this type of data.

Hire a reputable private investigator to uncover proof of white collar crime

King Investigators has fast become a valuable resource for many clients for over ten years now, clients that are determined to protect sensitive information about their companies, as well as to root out theft and fraud, and to start at the very beginning with in-depth background checks and even lie detector tests.

What to do if someone is harassing you via text or email

Harassment has become a common issue due to the advancement of technology today, allowing many to stalk, threaten, bully or just generally harass someone from behind a computer or from a cell phone.

The first thing to bear in mind if you’re being cyber-bullied, stalked or harassed, is that you are not to blame, you are the victim, and as such, are within your rights to seek relief or protection from it.

It’s easy to feel helpless in situations like this, it’s only natural, however, it’s important to know that there is something you can do to stop the harassment, and how to go about it.

What is cyber-bullying, stalking or harassment?

From an emotional point of view, harassing behaviour is any behaviour that is threatening or disturbing to you, anything that causes unwarranted fear in you, and it’s this elevation of fear that can lead you down the path to taking steps to stop the harassment.

Sexual harassment occurs when someone constantly tries to make unwanted advances towards you via text or online, whether via email or social media platform, and, on being rebuffed, becomes threatening. In many instances this could lead from the cyber-world into the real world, making it dangerous to handle on your own.

Emotional harassment suggests the constant occurrence of non-physical intimidation, control, punishment, humiliation or fear.

3 Steps You Can Take to Stop Harassment

Step 1: Record and organise texts or emails

You need to have a backup of emails and texts if you want to approach the police or a private investigator to investigate the harassment. Take a screenshot of every message your tormentor sends, including your replies that request them to stop the harassment.

Keep a diary, organised by date and time, so that by the time you need to take the information to the right people, they’ll have all they need to get on with protecting you and stopping the harassment.

Organise the information you’ve collected into a simple format to make it easy for the investigator to understand. Always create a duplicate folder for yourself as backup if anything is misplaced along the way to securing your safety.

Step 2: Report the harassment to the police

Go to your local police station with your information folder. Make sure to ask that you may speak to a detective rather than the desk officer, as it is the detectives that are able to investigate. Ordinary police officers only respond to suspicious activities, while detectives are able to do an actual investigation of your complaint. If it’s your child that’s being harassed, you can report it on their behalf.

Step 3: Hire a private investigator

In general, the local police force is seriously undermanned and swamped with more than what they actually able to handle, making a private investigator your best choice if you want to stop cyber-harassment of any form.

Private investigators have extensive experience with harassment cases, with their goal not only being to put an end to the harassment, but also to identify the perpetrator.

This is information they can share with the police in order to enable them to arrest the perpetrator and have a solid case against him or her. This part is vital to obtaining and enforcing court orders or obtaining jail sentences that’ll put an end the harassment.

Contact King Investigators today to take action against harassment and to take back control of your life. This team of professionals do it the right way, so that any evidence gathered will stand up to scrutiny and be a solid backup for you in court if necessary.

Reasons for the use of lie detector tests in South Africa

King Investigators is a team of professional investigators dedicated to the pursuit of truth, and, in this, they also use their skill and knowledge of polygraph testing to obtain the most accurate responses possible in an age where the use of state of the art technology during the course of investigations is an absolute necessity.

The physical responses that are elicited from people who are taking a polygraph test, such as breathing patterns, variations in blood pressure and other responses elicited through skin conductivity, are recorded as questions are put to the subject under investigation, facts which then contribute to whether someone fails or passes a polygraph test.

As polygraph specialists, King Investigators provide lie detector tests that would be applicable in circumstances as set out below:

Subject-specific testing

Where subjects are tested about a particular occurrence or crime, and their involvement in it. This is a test that isn’t about ‘he said, she said’, its aimed at finding out whether someone is involved in a crime or in an incident that has caused harm, whether to people or to property. The police services often rely on King Investigators to assist with lie detector tests as they have to be carried out by a registered professional.

Confirmatory tests

Supporting honesty of claims. These lie detector tests are used when there are more than one person involved in a situation, especially if contradictory statements are presented by several individuals regarding the same matter.

Routine tests

In certain industries, such as in financial institutions, the gold and diamond mining industry, as well as in businesses that are heavily involved with product development that requires a high level of secrecy and security, an employer can request regular lie detector tests, however, it needs to be part of the employment package right from the start.

To remain fair, complying with the Labour Relations Act means that a lie detector test can’t be used unfairly against an individual singled out from the rest, if it applies to one, it has to apply to all.

To be noted here though is the fact that no employee can be forced to take a lie detector test if it’s not part of company culture. Here again, a lie detector test has to be conducted by a professional investigator with the necessary skill and knowledge to use the right equipment to ensure scientific validity.

As with any lie detector test results, these are merely to be used as supporting evidence of wrongdoing, in conjunction with other evidence obtained in the investigation.

Pre-employment polygraph tests

If you are planning to employ someone and they have nothing to hide, letting them know at the outset that they’re going to need to take a pre-employment polygraph test shouldn’t be too much of a problem. They can of course refuse, but then you can move on to the next applicant.

It could protect you from trouble further down the line, especially if there are skeletons in the cupboard such as drug or alcohol abuse, fraud, theft or a background of sexual harassment.  These are all very costly mistakes for any company to make when employing someone like this.

Cover all your bases by contacting King Investigators

If you are considering hiring a private investigator in South Africa to assist you with expert polygraph testing (lie detector tests) or voice stress analysis testing, contact King Investigators, the trusted name in the industry.

This is a team of professionals you can rely on to get to the bottom of any question of wrongdoing, and they’ll save you a lot of money in the process!

4 Reasons that make employee background checks essential in 2020

As a business owner, you may well have hired someone in the past that in hindsight you wished you hadn’t, especially if they have in any way acted in a manner that short-changed your business.

Perhaps you’d have known that the possibility existed that they wouldn’t be good for your business had you invested in an in-depth background check carried out by professionals.

This is where a professional investigative company like King Investigators comes into the picture, a picture well worth cultivating as a prevention rather than a cure, since the one is infinitely better than the other that requires damage control.

This team of professionals is able to work out a system that will work to your benefit whenever you really need the goods on someone’s background.

Here are a few things you may not have known about how in-depth background checks work, to give insight into what makes it worth having a private investigator on retainer with your company to do this for you.

  1. A centralised global database for criminal background checks for employment doesn’t exist

One misconception about criminal background checks, is that there is one database that carries all criminal records filed globally, which, while accurate to a certain extent, does not cover it all. Criminal records are spread across various databases internationally, compiled by different law enforcement bodies, making it a lot more complex than just typing a name into a program and hitting enter.

2. There are various types of background checks, not just criminal history checks

When you hear the term “background checks” you instantly think “criminal history, however, there are other checks that will also stand you in good stead if you’re to know who you’re really dealing with.

Credit history checks, sex offender registry checks, driving record checks, employment history checks and more all fall under this, however, as a private individual, you can only go so far before you need the services of a professional who knows exactly how to access records and databases you won’t have access to.

3. Using social media platforms for background checks won’t take you far enough

Contrary to popular belief, looking up your applicant on social media won’t qualify as an in-depth background check, and can’t be counted as due diligence. The information people post on social media platforms isn’t always the truth either, though it may give you an idea of their social life, but that’s about it. Its worth going to an in-depth level to protect your business as much as is possible, from the outset.

4. A background check can be used to identify inaccurate information on CV’s

Without doing a thorough background check you’ll never know if the info provided by an applicant in their CV is in fact accurate and true. Candidates are willing to give false information to improve their chances of getting hired, and, there are syndicates standing by to back up this false information should you wish to contact previous employers.

Though technology has brought a lot of positives with it, it has also made it easier for would-be fraudsters and criminals to gain access to businesses for nefarious reasons. A private investigator can provide far deeper verification checks that will allow you to know exactly who you are dealing with, right from day 1.

King Investigators will deliver in-depth background reports to you within 24 hours, reports that are thorough and professional enough to give you confidence about the decision you’ll be making, whether taking on a new employee, investing in a new company or taking on a new partner.

Should you require the assistance of trusted, reliable private investigators in South Africa to do background checks, please don’t hesitate to contact the team at King Investigators today, it’ll be one of the best investments in the future you’ll make!



How to Trace a Long Lost Relative Quickly

If you’ve been wanting to reconnect with a long-lost relative or friend, you probably already know that there are a few things you need to take into account before you tackle tracing him or her.

It may also be someone you’ve last seen in high school and you’d like to catch up after years apart, or perhaps to reconnect with a long lost romantic partner to find out how they’re doing.

Trying to remember or find details like where they were born, their date of birth, middle initials, last known location, career information, hobbies as well as details regarding their personality such as quirks, likes and dislikes. Even the smallest detail could be a great help in tracing someone.

2. Start with search engines and social media platforms

With as much information on hand regarding the person you are looking for, start with search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo, you’d be amazed at the wealth of information gathered by the internet, even on individuals.

Another excellent place to start would be on social networking sites, such as Facebook, which has over a billion users globally, making them the biggest search engine by far and a good place to start. You can look for someone using their name, location and even a group like their graduating class from high school or athletics team.

3. Hire a private investigator

If, after all of this, you still haven’t made headway, the next step would be to hire a private investigator, and a decent one, with the right credentials won’t charge you a fortune either if you’re hesitant to do so on the basis of finances.

King Investigators in Gauteng has a team with the training, experience, skill and tools necessary to find people who have gone missing. Here it’s also vital to provide them with as much information as possible to make tracing the person a viable investigation to tackle.

Private investigators use undercover surveillance as an effective tool for gathering evidence in specific investigations

Yes, it’s true, social media platforms, the news, conspiracy theorists and alarmists have definitely given the word ‘surveillance’ a bad reputation, which is deserved, but only in certain instances, such as when a government is spying on its people.

None of us want ‘Big Brother’ listening in on all our devices, or spying on our web activities, but when it comes to undercover surveillance carried out by trained private investigators, it’s a completely different thing, and, in many instances, can save lives.

Undercover surveillance is very necessary tool used for many purposes, and when carried out by private investigators who are ethical, and respect the rules and regulations of their industry, it’s a highly effective tool for gathering a wealth of evidence in many cases.

When you work with King Investigators, undoubtedly a team of the best surveillance private investigators in Pretoria and Johannesburg, surveillance is to document the activities of a subject under surveillance, their contacts, movements and activities for very specific reasons, on behalf of a client.

Undercover surveillance is never carried out by this team without it being a part of a specific case under investigation.

The reasons to use undercover surveillance are varied, and include situations such as:

  • Civil and criminal investigations
  • Business intelligence
  • Due Diligence Investigations
  • Cheating spouses and infidelity
  • Stalking and harassment
  • Employee theft, fraud and misappropriation of company funds
  • Surveillance of employees, as well as representatives of a company when out on the road
  • Child custody and Child abduction cases
  • Illegal drug activities
  • Spousal abuse & child abuse

Methods used in surveillance:

  • Physical surveillance

Physical surveillance isn’t limited to keeping the subject of the investigation under physical observation.  It can also include using state of the art audio and visual recording devices to capture what is being observed by the investigator as evidence.

These types of devices not only add to the effectiveness of physical surveillance, but also act as further evidentiary backup of evidence being collected.

Physical surveillance can be very high risk for a private investigator. They are susceptible to being detected out in the field, by the wrong people or by the subject under surveillance, because the investigator has to stay as close as possible to the subject under investigation, yet not attract attention.

For instance, if an investigator needs to gain access to a business in which illegal activities are suspected, the investigator needs to be able to blend in without attracting attention to themselves.

  • Electronic Surveillance

Electronic surveillance involves having access to data transmissions, whether from mobile devices or desktop computers, as well as audio and video recording equipment that’ll be used to monitor the behaviour of the person under surveillance around the clock, if necessary.

GPS also plays a major part in electronic surveillance.  It is one of the most effective ways of keeping track, from a distance, of where the subject under investigation is travelling, and which routes are used in the process.

It’s important to note here that a GPS device can only be attached to a vehicle owned and registered in the client’s name, any other way is considered illegal and will be thrown out of court.

Many companies that have trucks and representatives out on the road all day make use of GPS devices monitored by private investigators. This is aimed at keeping track of what the employee is really up to when he or she leaves the business premises, especially if there are suspicions of illegal activities.

Qualities to look for when you decide to hire a private investigator in Gauteng

The first thing you need to do if you’re thinking about hiring a private investigator for, any reason, is to make sure that you’ll be dealing with an expert investigator who is licensed, registered and wholly professional!

The true measure of a successful private investigator is that he has the ability to carry out undercover surveillance and the ability to, at the opposite end of this spectrum, sift through reams of legally collected, highly analytical information to come to an honest conclusion of the facts.

  • Confidentiality

References from previous clients will give you confidence to feel that you can trust your private investigator implicitly with all the details of the investigation being carried out on your behalf, so ask for them.

  • Experience

  • Exceptional judgement

It’s essential that, based on your own homework, that you’ll feel you can trust your private investigator to exercise good judgement throughout the investigation, and to keep your safety a top priority.

  • Technological know-how

This knowledge also means that the investigator know just how to access data and research a subject under investigation, without leaving the office.

Social networking sites, mobile phones, employment histories and other highly specialised databases are all there for the taking, but it takes someone with specialist knowledge to go deeper than what is on the surface for all to see.
