Is Technology Killing The Cheater? PI’s Reveal How They Track Digital Infidelity Trails – ABC News

Technology Can Scour Escort Service Sites for a Cheater’s Email

1. Deleted Stuff On Cell Phones Can Be Retrieved

Ed Opperman, a PI based in Henderson, Nev., said he has recovered deleted text messages, calendar updates, memos, incoming and outgoing call records and other information from cell phones of alleged cheats. “There’s a lot of information in a phone that is excellent for an infidelity investigation,” Opperman said. “We want the deleted stuff, that’s what we’re looking for.”

2. Website Registries Can Be Combed for Email Addresses

For a fee, Opperman offers to scour dating, escort services, porn and personal ad website registries for a suspected cheat’s email address through his website, “It is very quick,” he said. “The whole search takes about 20 minutes.”

3. Long Phone Call Records Can Be a Red Flag

Don’t forget about those good old fashioned phone records. Some private investigators will look through those too for clues. Nazarian said when he looks at phone bills for someone who is suspected of cheating, he takes note of the number of minutes someone is talking. “Most cell phone calls are like a minute, two minutes, three minutes max,” he said. “When you see a 30, 40, 50 minute cell phone call and that number keeps popping up, there’s a problem.”

4. Cyber Honey Traps Can Be Set

Some private investigators will also try to approach a suspected cheater online to lure them or catch them in the act. “In general, on the Internet, people think they are invisible,” Opperman said. “They think they can get away with a lot. The older ones, they aren’t that tech savvy and they don’t realize the trail that they are leaving behind.”
