individual-spouse-229x300SPOUSAL LOYALTY is an issue that, sadly, is on the mind of seemingly everyone today. Infidelity is at an all-time high! From the First Lady to the housewife down the street, the haunting question: “Is my spouse being faithful to me?” persists. Cobra Investigations and Security can help determine your spouse’s (or lover’s) loyalty or disloyalty in a number of innovative and discreet ways, several of which are described in greater detail on these pages. Surveillance, decoys, concealed video, selected database searches (Who is she calling on her cellphone? Why does his credit card bill show him buying a dozen roses that you never received? Why does the hotel computer show two people registered in his room on his last business trip?), plus other techniques can be utilized when you need answers!

What Should I Expect from an Infidelity Investigation?
Investigations into cheating spouses can range from hours to several months. Regardless of length of time, when you go to see a private investigator about a cheating spouse, you will be treated with discretion and respect. The investigator will listen to your suspicions, take them seriously, and will ask you how you want the investigation to be shaped. You will remain in control of how the investigation proceeds and your professional investigator will investigate your spouse--on your terms--until you are completely satisfied. You will be able to get regular updates about the status of the investigation and only you will get to decide what to do with the information that is gathered.

Some people seek help as soon as they feel some suspicion that their spouse is cheating. Knowing for certain is important to them before they confront their partner. Others know their spouse in unfaithful but want solid evidence. If worries about your spouse are affecting your relationship or causing you stress, speaking with a private investigator can help.

For private investigation to work, you need to be willing to commit to an investigation. This means that you must be willing to speak openly with the investigator about your situation and you must be willing to find out the truth. As long as you are willing to do these things, you can take control of your situation.

individual-surveillance-229x300Is the classic tool of the private investigator. It is often the best and sometimes the only viable option when knowledge of an individual’s movements, habits, and personal contacts are in question. Our highly-trained surveillance teams are comprised of former government operatives and are unmatched when it comes to the efficient and discreet “tailing” of a suspect. Be it vehicular or foot, static or mobile surveillance, we have the equipment and the personnel to get the job done right. Whether that individual is an unfaithful spouse, an employee or business partner selling proprietary information to a competitor, or an insurance scam artist faking a personal injury, with our team unobtrusively observing from the shadows you are provided with not only a credible eye witness and a detailed, written report, but also with photo/video evidence if desired.

Our professionally conducted video and photo surveillance is the best and most accurate way of determining the whereabouts, daily activities, and movements of the subject or object in question. You can be confident that our determination, diligence and attention to detail will expose what you need to know. Cobra Investigations will provide a copy of all documentation, images and video relevant to your decision making.

Our experienced and highly trained investigators use a wide range of industry leading equipment. From EOS SLR cameras, to mini, virtually undetectable video cameras. We stay ahead of the curve and make sure no matter the situation, our equipment is never a limitation. We consider ourselves leaders in the surveillance industry.

Surveillance is used in many types and stages of investigations, such as:

missing A lost love, relative, deadbeat dad, witness or defendant in a legal case, debtor, former classmate, old army buddy, runaway, parental kidnapping victim, heir, biological parent/child, etc. Depending upon a number of factors (e.g., length of time the person has been missing, how intent he/she is on staying missing), the task can be quite challenging, or remarkably simple if one has the appropriate computer databases, contacts, and experience in the finding of missing persons (also known as locates or skip traces). Cobra Investigations and Security has all of the above and our batting average is quite high in these cases. We recently broke our own speed record by locating a missing individual six minutes after the client walked out of our offices (we immediately called the client on her car phone to give her the good news but she had not had time to get back to her parking space yet!). For businesses, our 95% success rate can help solve your skip trace/debtor location problems.

financial-229x300Financial Asset Searches are very specialized investigations into the (sometimes hidden) financial status of an individual (or company or other entity). Efforts are often made, for various reasons, to conceal or downplay (or sometimes exaggerate) one’s wealth. We can sort out the facts regarding one’s assets through our ability to search bank account holdings (even if the client cannot supply the target’s bank, branch and account number), stocks/bonds, real estate, personal property (vehicles, boats, planes), insurance policies and annuities, safe deposit boxes, etc. Our consultants can also advise individuals on how best to protect their own assets. (also see “Forensic Accounting” below) 

The asset search is used to reveal the financial profile of an individual or business. The asset search can be useful in matters involving litigation and in general business law.

Asset searches make sure the borrowing party has the necessary assets to ensure you will be paid in full. Asset investigations occur daily to help individuals and companies satisfy their due diligence, settle personal injury cases, collect debt, hire the right employee, and verify financial statements during a divorce or child support case.

The growing reliance on cellular phones, particularly smart phones has presented a new frontier for investigators who have become trained in cellular forensics including recovering deleted text messages, past GPS locations and other data that may have been deleted.
Various applications are available to download to a smart phone making them easy targets for bugging.  An application can turn your phone into a GPS tracker as well as sending out all of your text messages, surfing history as well as your own cell phone conversations.  FlexiSpy, eBlaster for Android, MobileSpy and others are dangerous threats to your privacy.

We pride ourselves in our ability to be in a position to be able to prove this unique service as time and time again it has proved to make a positive difference in the life of the teen and quality of life for the family. Things are much different for a teen growing today than in decades past when the world was a much different place. Drug use, sexual activity, gang activity, shoplifting, theft, school shootings and violent attacks on fellow students are common headlines in the news today. These alarming stories are not limited to just inner cities but have spread throughout our country to the most rural corners of the United States.

Providing peace of mind through discreet investigation, to verify your teen’s activities, can save their life. Initiating a teen investigation when there are red flags can verify and identify what is taking place with your most valued possession, your child. What is he/she doing and with whom?

Some Red Flags Include The Following

  • Poor grades
  • Mood swings
  • Poor attendance
  • Suspected Drug Use
  • Different friends, recently
  • Disappear for hours at a time
  • Hanging with the wrong crowd
  • Discreet or excessive computer use.

Is your child acting different or strange?

Is your teenager dating and or involved with an older adult?

Does the mileage in the family car match up to places he/she was supposed to be?

Now is the time to identify when your teen is making poor judgments or unethical decisions before they run the risk of falling prey to human trafficking, gangs, drugs and other violent and dangerous activities. When conducted before it is too late, teen investigations can save your child’s life. Parents have the right to know and protect their children, insuring that their safety and well being today will provide a lifetime of happiness tomorrow.  Cobra Investigations has the ability to conduct discreet surveillance to document your teen’s whereabouts during unsupervised hours, document the teen’s interactions, conduct computer and cellular phone forensic examinations, provide tracking devices, and investigate their associates.
