Infidelity - Truth or Deception

Have you felt the warning signs that your partner or spouse is unfaithful?


There are no definitive signs to articulate if someone is unfaithful or why they chose to cheat. Strangely enough, even a harmless act, takes much thought and can create an impetuous devastation - ruining lives and relationships.

Are your inner alarms going off?

Infidelity can happen just about anywhere – the work place, the home, social media, the internet, texting, e-mail and even in chat rooms.

There are many forms of infidelity and oftentimes, it has nothing to do with sex.

Numerous contributing circumstances drive the forces towards one’s emotions. Emotional infidelity, in comparison to physical infidelity, can cause just as much and possibly more hurt, pain and anguish. If the unfaithfulness consists of physical and emotional betrayal, then the pain is multiplied.

Every insurance fraud claim and workers compensation fraud cases are unique but with our experience in covert surveillance, we are here to help you.

Insurance fraud is any act committed with the intent to obtain a fraudulent outcome from an insurance process. This may occur when a claimant attempts to obtain some benefit or advantage to which they are not otherwise entitled, or when an insurer knowingly denies some benefit that is due.  False insurance claims are insurance claims filed with the intent to defraud an insurance provider.

Insurance fraud has existed since the beginning of insurance.  Fraudulent claims account for a significant portion of all claims received by insurers, and cost billions of dollars annually. Types of insurance fraud are diverse, and occur in all areas of insurance.  Insurance crimes also range in severity, from slightly exaggerating claims to deliberately causing accidents or damage.


Fraudulent activities affect the lives of innocent people and businesses, both directly through accidental or intentional injury or damage, and indirectly as these crimes cause insurance premiums to be higher.


Insurance fraud poses a significant problem, and governments and other organizations make efforts to deter such activities.
