Cheating & infidelity in a mobile age.

Making the decision to hire a private investigator to find proof of infidelity is going to be one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to do. It’s devastating to deal with the suspicion alone, but when you’re tired of being told you’re imagining it, you may want proof that you’re not, one way or another.

In this you won’t be alone.  There are thousands who share your pain and disappointment, which is why infidelity is one of the major reasons a private investigator is hired.

Statistics gathered by King Investigators in Pretoria and Johannesburg show that up to 85% of people who suspect their partner of infidelity are right.

This is a painfully high percentage for anyone to accept, yet, all the signs that add up to the suspicion of infidelity or cheating, taken together, generally mean that it’s not imagined.

The advent of mobile technology has made having an affair even easier than it ever was unfortunately.

Making arrangements to meet a lover is easy with a cell phone. You won’t know whether your partner is deleting messages and clearing the call log, but you will notice that more calls are coming in or going out that aren’t familiar.

People that use cell phones as a means to communicate when having an affair will definitely be more furtive about calls made and received, and they’ll also be far more possessive over their phone than they may have been before.

Getting hold of your partner’s cell phone for proof isn’t going to be easy either, especially not if they’re involved in an affair. If you do manage to get hold of it, there’s password protection that’ll keep you out.

Depending on the personality or volatility of your spouse or partner, you may be heading into dangerous waters by trying to get information from their electronic devices.

Of course it’s not all about mobile devices or computers.  You’ll instinctively know that something’s up if your spouse suddenly starts paying closer attention to the way they look, how they dress and wear their hair.

If you’re partner has had to put in nights at work in general, you’ll know something isn’t right when there’s an increase in having to work overtime.

In any event, if you’ve made the decision to find the proof you need, either to set your mind at ease or to confirm the worst, you’ll need the most professional cheating spouse detective in South Africa to help you negotiate these murky waters safely.

All about undercover surveillance.

King Investigators are highly trained undercover operatives who use the experience of over 10 years in the field to remain undetected in all their investigations.

This level of specialised training in surveillance is absolutely necessary in cases of infidelity, business intelligence, theft, fraud, and divorce or child custody cases.

It’s the only way that evidence can be gathered without putting their own client at risk of exposure during an investigation, and they put their reputation on the line willingly with every case involving undercover surveillance.

It’s a highly pressurised field that requires the investigator to have the experience and knowledge to know where to dig for evidence, and how to analyse all the evidence gathered during an investigation successfully.

The experience King Investigators brings to undercover surveillance in South Africa has rapidly expanded across borders into other Southern African countries, as well as into international waters on high risk operations.

So, what is undercover surveillance?

It’s basically a case of covertly observing people who are the subject of an investigation, without risking detection.  If surveillance is detected, the case will be compromised. In certain cases, the safety of the investigator could also put at risk, which is why this is an area that should only be undertaken by professionals.

Surveillance comprises of physical observation, as well as the use of highly sophisticated electronic monitoring devices, which allows investigators to monitor conversations carried out by the subject under surveillance.

3 types of surveillance:

Fixed surveillance:

We’ve all heard the term ‘stakeout’ in movies, well, this is what fixed surveillance is.  It’s about waiting in place to observe people and activities from a distance in order to gather evidence of their activities, criminal or otherwise.

A true professional will be able to carry out surveillance on his own, but it’s best to speak to your investigator about bringing in another investigator so that it becomes more difficult to be detected.

Undercover surveillance in the workplace is a bit trickier though. This requires that an investigator come in as an employee, without raising any suspicions, which is nigh on impossible for anyone but an experienced professional.

Stationary Surveillance:

Using high definition camera and recording equipment installed in a vehicle where it won’t be obvious, an investigator is able to record images and video footage without being on site, which lessens the risk of detection.

All the investigator has to do is to retrieve footage and sound bites when necessary and withdraw again, until all the evidence required is collected.

Electronic Surveillance:

Electronic surveillance centres on using electronic, audio-visual or digital methods to gather evidence while monitoring an individual, home or business.  CCTV, high definition cameras and video equipment, along with other electronic devices are all means that are used to gather evidence in a case.

It’s important to know that there are strict laws around the use of electronic surveillance because of underhanded tactics used by criminals to invade the privacy of innocent people.

As highly trained investigators, King Investigators has the knowledge and experience to stick to the letter of the law regarding electronic surveillance, specifically so that any evidence not found to be inadmissible in court.

If you have a case that’s going to involve undercover surveillance, contact King Investigators. By the time this team has carried out the investigation, you’ll be able to take the evidence to court in full confidence that it won’t be thrown out as a result of underhanded tactics!

It’s impossible to carry out an effective investigation without the latest technological tools and know-how today, and to this end, King Investigators has a finger on the pulse of every new gadget that is given the okay for use.

What’s also very important to many types of investigation, is that King Investigators has developed a massive network of professional investigative associates internationally and throughout South Africa.

Tips for choosing the right professional PI in South Africa.

A private investigator with a high level of professionalism will be all that stands between you and a successful conclusion to any investigation, making it essential that you do your homework before committing to anything.

Most individuals who approach a private investigator for the first time have their own set of preconceived ideas about the industry as a whole, much of which is often negative.

This misconception is unfortunate, as there are many truly professional private investigators in South Africa who value integrity and honesty as the basis for every case they investigate.

Not all private investigators are the sleazy, dishonest type that are often depicted in movies, but they certainly do exist.

This is why you need to know a few things about how to find a professional private investigator in Pretoria or Johannesburg, South Africa, before you commit to an investigation with him.

Tips for choosing a professional private investigator:

What experience does he have?

You’ll need someone that’s been in the industry for long enough to know exactly how to approach a large variety of investigations.  Only many years’ worth of experience can assure you that the investigator will have the wealth of knowledge required to cover all aspects of private investigation.

Does he have a reputation other clients will back up?

Don’t be afraid to ask for references, you have every right to find out more about what previous clients have to say when you are planning to hire a private investigator.

If he is cagey about it, move on.

Is he transparent about costs?

By the time you’ve had your first consultation with the investigator, you should have a good idea of the costs that could be involved in the case.  An investigator committed to working a case in the most cost effective way possible is the one you should consider seriously.

An honest investigator isn’t going to pad the bill with any unnecessary or frivolous costs, and he’ll make sure that if any additional costs may be incurred during the course of the investigation, he’ll discuss it with you before going ahead.

Does he offer any kind of guarantee?

This is a very important question to keep in mind.  Any private investigator worth his salt will be more than happy to guarantee that you’ll be completely satisfied with the results at the conclusion of the investigation.

This means he’s guaranteeing that the evidence that’ll be presented to you will be honest, and able to stand up to scrutiny should it be used in court.

Will your privacy be respected?

No one wants to announce to the world that they’re hiring a private investigator.  The very nature of this decision is that it’s private, and you need to know, without a doubt, that your private investigator values your privacy and will keep any and all information confidential.

You’ll also want to know that any details pertaining to the case will be kept secure, so that at no point will the investigation be compromised.

Is he registered with PSIRA?

Don’t compromise on this. There is a code of conduct governing all private investigators in South Africa, which assures you that you’ll be dealing with an investigator that does not flout the rules to get what he wants.

PSIRA is actively involved in the investigation of any illegal practices in the industry in order to keep clients like you safe and protected when you need the services of a private investigator.

You can check here to find out whether your private investigator is registered with PSIRA, to make sure that you’re dealing with a professional that respects the governing rules of the industry.

Any compromise on these standards will simply compromise your case.

They meet all the above criteria and more in their pursuit of excellence, honesty and integrity, giving every client the confidence to entrust this team with even the most personal details needed to carry out any investigation.

How does the procedure of a lie detector test work?

Most of us can conjure up some pretty vivid imagery about exactly what happens during a lie detector test.  Some of it is no doubt fed by movies featuring heavies interrogating either the good guy or the bad guy, and waiting to put the screws on once the results are in.

The truth is that a polygraph, or lie detector, as daunting as it seems to most of us, is a rather ordinary machine that needn’t instil fear in you if you are on the up and up.

Let’s face it though, despite its innocuous appearance, even the most transparent of us would rather not go through the experience of a lie detector test.

Let’s look at what happens during a lie detector test:

At the outset it’s important to note that anyone taking a lie detector test is going to experience a degree of nervousness, but this is not the type of nervousness that will affect the outcome of the test.

The stress responses measured by the lie detector are way above the norm, and are those that are not ordinarily obvious to the naked eye.

The highly sophisticated equipment that makes up the lie detector is rigged to measure physiological responses that we’re generally not able to control, such as:

  • Cardiovascular
  • Perspiration
  • Respiratory response

These are the three stages of a lie detector or polygraph test:

Pre-testing phase

This is an important phase during which the polygraph examiner and the subject will establish a report, a kind of a get to know each other time, which helps to get the subject as relaxed as possible ahead of the test phase.

The subject will be given information about how the lie detector equipment works and given the time to voice any questions they may have about the process.

The reason for the lie detector test will be discussed, so that the subject is able to put forward their version of the situation that has resulted in the necessity for the test.

Questions will be discussed and agreed upon at this stage too.

This is also a chance for the examiner to get a good feel for the subject by observing their body language, speech patterns and responses during this period, which is actually the longest part of the whole test procedure.

The test itself

Without getting into the technicalities of the equipment used (by the time you get this far, you’ll know all about it from the first stage anyway), this is when you’ll be attached to the equipment.

The results collected by the equipment will be sent through to the monitor during the test, the results of which will be discussed in the last stage of the lie detector, or polygraph test as it’s sometimes known.

The final phase

If you’re the one in the hot seat, so to speak, this is when the examiner will analyse all the data collected by the equipment and provide you with the results immediately.  It’s important to note that you’ll be able to sign each sheet reflecting the results to make sure that there’s no chance your results will be confused with anyone else’s test.

King Investigators have an experienced team of polygraph examiners available to carry out professional lie detector tests in South Africa.

As the top private investigators in Pretoria and Johannesburg, you can be absolutely sure that the entire procedure will be carried out with the highest level of integrity and professionalism.

If you’d like in-depth information about the tests carried out by King Investigators, please don’t hesitate to call the team, or chat with them online.


Here’s your list of investigative services offered by top private investigators in Pretoria.

Experienced private investigators with many years’ worth of experience in the industry should be able to carry out a broad range of investigative services, in order to provide clients with exactly what is needed in each case.

To do this, the investigator needs to have in-depth experience in every investigative technique, from investigating theft in a company, to finding proof of infidelity as well as extensive experience in undercover surveillance.

A high level use of the latest technology is also absolutely necessary. There are so many more avenues for criminality that have been opened since the advent of the internet.

To this end, a truly professional private investigator needs to remain fully plugged in and updated on the latest technology as it is released, so that it can be used to the benefit of the client in an ever-evolving technological age.

Even an issue such as infidelity has taken on a different character, with mobile phones, social media platforms and email opening up doors to easy cheating.

The same can be said for fraud and other white collar crimes. These days hiding the truth behind a scam or CV is easy if the one behind it is highly technologically savvy.

These are just a few of the issues a private investigator has to have a broad range of experience in to bring to the table in any investigation. If the one you’re thinking of hiring doesn’t have experience this extensive, you’ll be doing yourself a disservice by placing your trust in him.

Investigative services offered by professional private investigators:

Cheating & infidelity:

Cases involving a cheating spouse, boyfriend, and girlfriend or life partner are among the most common investigations undertaken by private investigators in South Africa.

This type of investigation is never easy for the one hiring the private investigator. This makes it worth finding an investigator that has experience with investigations of infidelity or cheating, so that it will be handled with sensitivity and integrity.


Tracing missing people in South Africa has to be done by a local investigator. He has to have his ear to the ground and know the lay of the land like the back of his hand.

Trying to trace a missing person is nigh on impossible when you don’t even know where to start, but with the right investigator, armed with all available information, finding a missing person will be a lot more hopeful.

Business intelligence:

White collar crime is rife in business, which is why many companies and corporations form a trusted working relationship with the private investigator of their choice.

The investigator is able to provide investigative services that cover every crime from embezzlement to product theft and theft of trade secrets.

Background checks:

The type of information required to vet the background of anyone being considered for employment, involved in a divorce, planning a new business venture, or a myriad of other reasons, can’t be carried out by private individuals.

It takes knowledge and experience to dig up the details necessary to protect an individual or company in various situations.


Surveillance plays an integral part in many investigations. With the training and experience a professional investigator brings to the table, surveillance can be carried out without the subject being any wiser, no matter what the circumstances are.

Lie detector & polygraph services:

There are times when only a lie detector test or polygraph test will help to arrive at the truth of any situation.  These tests have to be administered by an experienced professional for them to carry any weight in a hearing of any kind, or in court.

Due diligence services:

High level executives rely on the ability of an investigator to provide them with comprehensive investigative reports that will have an impact on decisions involving investments, new business ventures or partners, for instance.

King Investigators rise to the challenge:

Should you require any of the investigative services mentioned above, you would be doing yourself and your case a great service by consulting with King Investigators in Pretoria and Johannesburg, South Africa.

This is a team of consummate private investigators who have the knowledge, experience and professionalism required to offer guaranteed results, no matter the case.

Tips for choosing the right private investigator in Pretoria & Johannesburg.

The two major things you’ll want from the private investigator you hire will be that they’ll handle everything about your case with a high level of professionalism, and that they’ll provide you with evidence that’ll stand up in court if needed.

There are many private investigators listed in Pretoria and Johannesburg, but how many of them meet the criteria needed to instil trust in clients?

Many attorneys work hand in glove with private investigators, which is why asking your attorney for a recommendation is a solid way to start.  Bear in mind that not all attorneys work with private investigators though.

If you don’t have a recommendation, whether from an attorney or other people you know, you’ll need to do a bit of detective work yourself to find a private investigator you’ll feel confident about hiring.

If you don’t take the time to do a proper background check of the private investigator you’re considering, you could well end up with a shady, fly-by-night investigator who cares little for the rules, which is an attitude that’ll compromise your case from the start.

Bear in mind that if you make the wrong decision and the evidence gathered is in contravention of the legislation governing private investigators, you’ll be making an expensive mistake.

Here are a few tips to make the search a little easier:

  • Licences

It’s daunting to find a private investigator in the first place, no matter what the case may be, but knowing what to look at first is going to make a big difference in narrowing down the list of investigators you may accumulate in your search.

If a private investigator isn’t registered with PSIRA, scratch him off the list!  This is the best way to ensure that you’ll be dealing with an experienced professional who understands and complies with the code of conduct set out for their industry.

  • Background

It’s important that you do your own checking into the background of investigators you’re considering hiring. Find out how many years he has been in the industry as this will be a good indication of the level of experience he’ll bring to your investigation.

You’ll also want to know how much experience he has in handling cases like yours in the last few years, as a way of gauging whether he is able to handle the specific field of investigation required.

You should be able to make an appointment for a free consultation so that you can also assess the communication skills of the investigator, so that you’ll have an idea of what you can expect in terms of professionalism in the final report.

  • References

You’ll be doing yourself a great favour by asking private investigators for references. Ask for references from previous clients and attorneys if possible.  It’s always a good idea to have recommendations from professionals included with those of private individuals.  Make sure you ask the investigator for references from clients who’ve had cases that are specific to yours.

King Investigators in Pretoria and Johannesburg are, without a doubt, able to meet the above criteria, and with every investigation they undertake, whether for private individuals or business, they act with the professionalism you should expect from any investigator worth his salt.

Contact owner/manager Jacques to ask all the questions you need answered and you’ll have absolute confidence in the fact that you’ve made the right choice.

Surveillance – the prime investigative tool used by private investigators.

A private investigator will use surveillance to cover a multitude of cases, from obtaining evidence in a child custody case to locating missing persons, gathering evidence of insurance fraud or of infidelity.

Undercover surveillance is also carried out on behalf of businesses who are experiencing theft of goods or misappropriation of funds.

The reasons for close observation of a business premises or a person are varied, but the one thing absolutely necessary to carry out successful surveillance is experience.

The whole idea behind surveillance is to be able to closely observe people without being noticed, as well as being able to employ all the gadgets that state of the art technology offers to enhance surveillance and the gathering of evidence for any case.

Surveillance today still plays a fundamental role in the gathering of incontrovertible evidence of any wrongdoing, but it has to be carried out by seasoned professionals in order to be truly effective.

Tried and tested methods of visual surveillance:

Advanced technology has provided private investigators with high tech digital video cameras able to store an overwhelming amount of footage. These video cameras offer visual proof in HD, which is clear enough to be used in court.

The battery life and zoom capabilities of these video cams include time stamps on every video and image, backing up the evidence even further. The long battery life on these high tech cameras also means that the investigator can stay on the case longer than ever before.

All of this cuts down on the amount of information that needs to be recorded in any professional written report handed in by a private investigator at the conclusion of the case.

Smart phones have also come into their own as a surveillance tool for private investigators.  People are always hauling out their phones to take photos, which means that a private investigator can use one without attracting any attention at all.

There will also be times when a video camera is just too big to take on a certain leg of the investigation, especially if footage is being shot in a public place like a restaurant or other public places.

This is where micro cameras come in handy so that the investigator’s cover isn’t blown. Micro cameras can be disguised as anything from a Bluetooth headset to a button, making sure that no one is any the wiser of being observed in a public place.

While an investigator is following a subject he will use a nondescript car during surveillance, but to cut down on time spent following a subject, GPS trackers have also become part of the arsenal of tools a private investigator may be able to use under certain circumstances.

Unfortunately there are still some legal issues that need to be ironed out when it comes to using GPS trackers, as in most cases the permission of the vehicle owner is required, which would negate their use. That is unless it’s an infidelity case and the wife has the legal right to grant permission.

As professional private investigators in Pretoria who have a reputation for exceptional service to uphold, King Investigators has racked up an impressive amount of surveillance hours over the ten years plus since this team first hung out their shingle.

If you have a case that’s going to require the services of a surveillance expert, please contact King Investigators to book a free confidential consultation to lay the groundwork for a successful investigation.

How do private investigators go about finding evidence of infidelity?

No one wants to face the heartache that the words ‘infidelity’ or ‘cheating spouse’ evoke, but if you’re faced with the reality of having to deal with infidelity, its best that you hire a professional private investigator to find evidence the right way.

Just thinking about infidelity is enough to play havoc with emotions, and in this condition we can’t think straight enough to attempt to tackle the situation on our own, without becoming embroiled in emotionally volatile situations.

If you need proof that your spouse is cheating, the evidence will have to be collected according to the standards set by the courts, and this can only be done by a private investigator who knows what the legal boundaries are.

King Investigators in Pretoria have handled thousands of cases involving cheating spouses, and in every case they’ve left no stone unturned in order to get to the truth, whatever it may be.

You may simply want to confirm any suspicions you may have before you start divorce proceedings, especially if you’ve been led to believe it’s all in your imagination.

It needs to be said here that marriage can survive an affair, provided that both parties are willing to work hard to heal the wounds left by infidelity.  Not all is always lost when one spouse cheats!

Why hire a private investigator for cases involving infidelity:


A private investigator brings objectivity to a difficult situation by providing circumstantial evidence of cheating before you make the decision to seek a divorce. This is the only way that you can make a well-informed decision before you take the next step in the relationship.

The other reason for hiring a private investigator to find proof of infidelity is intended to provide incontrovertible evidence of infidelity that will stand up to scrutiny in court.

In addition to the final investigative report, photos and video evidence compiled, a private investigator may be called on to give evidence in court if necessary, though this is seldom required if you’ve hired a private investigator who acts out of integrity and professionalism.




How does a private investigator gather evidence of infidelity?

There are laws that govern private investigators and how they may go about collecting evidence of infidelity. If these are not adhered to, the evidence will be of absolutely no value.

An experienced, licensed private investigator will know exactly how to go about collecting evidence to be presented honestly and transparently. He or she will not compromise your case by being irresponsible.

What a well experienced private investigator can do is to use state of the art video equipment in order to provide video and photographic evidence of suspicious activity discovered during surveillance.

Only a private investigator who knows the lay of the land locally is going to be able to carry out surveillance without being noticed.  The surveillance will only be conducted for as long as it’s necessary to gather the evidence needed to prove infidelity.

Consulting King Investigators:

The first thing you’ll need to do is to book a confidential consultation with Jacques Botha at King Investigators in Pretoria.  At this consultation you’ll be able to clarify how you’d like the investigation to proceed.

At this meeting you’ll also be able to share information with your private investigator about your spouse so that the investigative approach can be decided on.

This is also when you’ll be able to discuss what you’ll be looking at in terms of charges for the services provided by Jacques and his team. You can also get an idea what you may be looking at in terms of the length of the investigation.

The types of investigative services that can be provided will also be discussed.  This would include a range of services that cover everything from surveillance to conducting a search of assets.

King Investigators will take you through this difficult experience with sensitivity and professionalism so that the end result will be evidence that is legally acquired and will stand up to scrutiny in court.

4 Reasons private individuals will hire a private investigator.

Although an investigative company like King Investigators in Pretoria offers business intelligence and due diligence investigations for companies, they’re highly experienced in carrying out investigations for individuals in their private capacity as well.

There are many reasons that an individual would hire a private investigator, but the bottom line is that they need a consummate professional to gather incontrovertible evidence in personal matters.

It takes skill to uncover information and to carry out surveillance, which is why it’s best you hire a private investigator with an impeccable reputation to gather the evidence you require in your specific case.

Here are 4 reasons private individuals will hire a private investigator:

  • Divorce:

Infidelity and divorce often go hand in hand, and if suspicions of infidelity are raised in a marriage, only a professional is able to provide irrefutable evidence that can be used in court.

Anything less will be of no value once lawyers start tearing evidence apart.

A private investigator is highly trained in remaining discreet and being able to observe the subject of an investigation without having their cover blown.  A professional investigator also knows the dos and don’ts of gathering evidence, so that all evidence is gathered according to strict industry standards.

Other reasons a private investigator may be involved in divorce cases is to gather evidence of any drug use and other illegal activities the subject is involved in that may lead to a positive outcome for the client during a divorce case.

2       Child custody and child abuse:

When parents are fighting for custody or to retain child custody rights it’s generally a very contentious issue, cutting to the core of any responsible parent who wants to give their child the best in a difficult situation.

If there is any suspicion that there is neglect, negligence or abuse taking place when a child is with the other parent, evidence that cannot be disputed needs to be gathered by a professional to give the results any weight when it comes to the custody case.

Making sure that the other parent is sticking to custody arrangements is another reason that individuals hire private investigators.

Custody arrangements are there to be observed for the protection and safety of the child. This is of paramount importance to the court, and if any part of the arrangement is being compromised, the welfare of the child will be placed above all else and custody arrangements amended according to evidence provided to back up these claims.

3       Family issues:

When parents are concerned that their children are involved in dangerous behaviour and illicit drug use, a private investigator will gather the evidence necessary to confirm suspicions, so that parents and other family members are able to intervene to protect their children from further damaging behaviour.

A spouse may also call in a private investigator to find out whether or not their spouse is involved in gambling, drug use or any other dangerous activities.

4       Domestic Abuse:

Unfortunately, most people who are victims of domestic abuse find it difficult to prove domestic abuse without the aid of a professional investigator.

The private investigator is able to assist the victim of domestic abuse to record everything they can about the abuse they’re living with, whether physical, mental, sexual or emotional.

The evidence that a private investigator is able to uncover in the course of a domestic abuse case is of great value where it comes to seeking protective orders, divorce or child custody cases.

The families of those abused often hire a private investigator to gather as much evidence as possible to allay or confirm their suspicions before any action is taken to protect the family member being abused.
