No matter your place in life, morality matters.
Sometimes society doesn’t see this – even when you are a victim of deception, physical abuse or theft. In some cases, a private investigator can provide the strength you need to give yourself back the moral respect you deserve.
In this post, I talk about some of the morality considerations of cheating spouse and employee theft investigations.
If you have a spouse who is cheating on you, it isn’t just about the financial side of things.
You may need a private investigator to catch your spouse in the act. Don’t feel like you are being out of line if you think you’re being cheated on. Although the evidence may not be submitted in a court-setting, you deserve to know the truth. Many of our clients share the evidence with their children to help them understand why “mommy and daddy” are not staying together. Also, you deserve to have some FINALITY in your life.
We’ve performed over 33,000 surveillances for suspicious spouses. Here’s some of the stats behind these cases:
- About 97% of the time, we confirm the affair.
- 80% of our clients are females that suspect their husband is cheating on them.
- When a female catches her mate, about 1/3 get divorced, 1/3 want to participate in counseling and a 1/3 don’t know what to do.
- When a male catches his mate, about 99% of the men get divorced.
- Evidence of the affair, when gathered in a court-admissible manner, can make a huge difference during divorce proceedings.
The morality matters, even when you end up with more of the money. You deserve to have your dignity intact.
If you are a small business owner, you know what working tireless hours, working seven days a week for months on end still settling for not much income is all about. When you build a business, you are building a dream, a legacy that shows your strength and dedication.
Theft by employees is a rampant problem for owners of every size of business. The theft rate of time, money or product in most U.S. based businesses from 1969 to the third quarter of 2006 was about 15%. This means if you had 100 employees, 15 were stealing from the employer. Since the third quarter of 2006 until today, the rate has risen steadily and is now at an astounding 75%. The increase is because people feel cheated out of pay raises, vacation time, bonuses, company events and retirement funding and believe they have a sense of entitlement. When it is a business you built yourself, the effects are devastating not just in the financial sense, but because your trust is violated. No matter what, the morality matters. You deserve to have closure in this situation just as you would with spousal infidelity.
The same sinking feeling happens in a corporate career. No one moves up the ranks in a corporation without making huge sacrifices of time and life-changing plans. When you toil for years to build a good operation and people start stealing, the feeling of emptiness is the same.
It is never just about the money.
Never feel guilty
If you’ve witnessed genuine, intentional and malicious wrong-doing, don’t feel guilty about fighting back. When it comes to employee theft, private investigators can uncover a scandal quickly. There is no reason to feel guilty, to feel like you are being mean or out of line. Theft is wrong. You may have to use tactics that are tough, but everyone who has followed the rules can feel good in the end because they will be found innocent, just as the guilty will be exposed.
Interview & Interrogation
Interrogations certainly don’t evoke a positive image, but the fact is, interrogations work most of the time. Don’t be an employer who is afraid of having a world-class investigator come into your workplace who is skilled in the art of interview and interrogation because it might scare or make the employees unhappy. If that is your mindset, then let them keep stealing you blind.
A good private investigator will come to you with law enforcement experience, and that means they know how to interview and interrogate a perpetrator legally and efficiently. You need only to help the investigators move in the right direction. They can handle the rest as long as you maintain open lines of communication.
