‘Tis the season to be jolly, but tis also the season of parties, drunkenness and affairs. In a recent study, over 73% of men who had extramarital affairs met their mistress at work. Work affairs are hard to detect as your partner can claim he or she is working long hours, but office Christmas parties are perfect for exposing workplace affairs. There are several signs that reveal your partner is having an affair. We, at Insight Investigations, give you some top tips for finding out if your partner is taking part in extra martial activities.
If you’re going to the party too:
Introduce yourself to your partner’s co-workers – be friendly and let them know who you are. Watch out for people’s reactions. If they seem surprised or flustered then your partner may be having a secret affair.
Use the party to your benefit – make friends, network, exchange phone numbers, etc.
Listen to the office gossip – people may say “Oh, is that her partner? I thought she was dating Bob!”
Subtly observe how your partner interacts with others – is your partner friendlier with a particular person? Or are they very cold towards someone? Both could indicate a cheating partner.
Take note of what gifts your partner receives from colleagues – if your partner gets something thoughtful or personal from someone then perhaps this indicates a close relationship
Observe how others act around your partner – is a certain person hostile towards you or overly friendly?
If you’re not going to the party and your partner is:
Making a big effort to look attractive for the party.
Distant. This is a pretty obvious one but sometimes people are distant for a number of reasons including stress, fatigue, tiredness, personal tragedy, depression etc.
Behaving in a guilty or shifty way.
Partaking in secretive or unexplained behaviour – not even telling you when or where the Christmas party is or discouraging you from going with him/her.
Spending less time with you.
Making your gut instinct go crazy.
Repeatedly mentioning someone’s name with unbridled enthusiasm.
Of course, there may be an explanation for your partner’s behaviour – don’t jump to conclusions. If you’re worried your partner could be cheating on you then call us for free now on 0800 14 55 123 or 03450 178 100 for mobiles.
Any successful business will be counting on the competence and reliability of its employees. Ideally each functioning member will maintain a certain degree of vigilance when it comes to ethical financial conduct, as any prolonged abuse of the company in questions finances will ultimately come to affect everybody who works as a part of its payroll system. If left unaddressed, even the smallest of these abuses can quickly escalate to a point where they severely damage a company’s internal economy, and in some cases lead to the irreparable damage of their public image, which is never good.
So it seems that it is the responsibility of every employee, top to bottom, to train a keen eye in the direction of any fraudulent activity, and to follow up on any cash flow discrepancies in a discrete and calmly manner. For most this would prove a somewhat difficult task as a lack of experience in the handling of these matters can often lead to misdirected accusations, which can cause almost as many problems as the unethical conduct can have done so in the first place.
If this is the case, you may need the assistance of a professional team of specialist corporate investigators. Fortunately at Insight we offer this exact service and more. Each case is handled by a team of professional investigators who are trained thoroughly to discern the true culprit from the many potentials that can exist, given the nature of the working environment.
We handle each case discretely, searching high and low throughout the company in order to spot the tell signs that corporate fraud has indeed been taking place, and then they will trace those prints back to the true culprit, not once risking anything on quick assumptions. If you’ve caught on to some problematic financial reports, or just have your suspicions, don’t attempt to tackle it on your own at the risk of elevating the disturbance, call us free on 0800 14 55 123 and get the help you need to get your company back on the right track.
Insight Investigations are proud to announce the launch of our brand new website! The old design was great, but didn’t reflect the way the company has developed over the past 3 years, and as we had been using it for over 3 years we decided it was time for a change!
The overhaul didn’t just stop at the site layout; everything has been completely refreshed from the colour scheme to the logo, design and general usability. Our overall aim was to give the site a more modern feel in order to better reflect our brand, and to make sure it was responsive and better configured for all devices, as more and more people are using tablets and mobile devices to browse the internet. The new site is also better configured to showcase the work we do and the areas we cover nationwide, from Liverpool to Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, London, Cardiff, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield and more.
“The day finally came when going live was a reality…” said Beverley Flynn, Managing Director at Insight Investigations.
“…With the help of some very clever and dedicated people, some 7 months after wanting to achieve a better customer experience for our visitors. Only time will tell if we have achieved this, and we hope via our Facebook and Twitter feeds visitors will tell us what they think, or provide suggestions on how we could improve further.
There was even flurry over what the “new” Insight lion would be called, of course there is only one name for him, and that is the same as it was 22 years ago! – “Leo”. He has just had a makeover – turned himself around and changed his colours.
Directors and staff would like to thank all involved for their much appreciated contributions.”
The Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) has named financial institutions Deloitte, Credit Suisse and Chase Manhattan as among six companies who used corrupt private investigators for illegally acquiring information or blagging.
Nine other additional firms were included on the secret list given to a government committee. There are also a number of individuals and celebrities who have employed the private investigators for personal use. Jeremy Clarkson, of Top Gear, allegedly hired an investigator from a security company called Greymans, in order to expose a man who had apparently targeted a member of his family. The Mail on Sunday claimed Greymans employed one of the PIs to blag the man’s contact details, but there was no inclination that either Clarkson or Greyma knew the PI was corrupt. However ignorance of the Law has NEVER been an adequate defence and Clarkson is therefore guilty, by association, of engaging an Investigator to breach the DPA.
The Independent newspaper previously revealed that, in 2008, SOCA created a dossier detailing which companies hired corrupt PIs. all the investigators obtained information using illegal means such as phone hacking and bribing. The Home Affairs Select Committee received the 102-strong list, but stated it was confidential so as to protect the “financial viability of major organisations” in the event that they are “tainting them with public association with criminality”.
Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affair Select Committee, said yesterday that the committee would make a decision on whether to publish the list after it met on 3 September.
Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affair Select Committee, stated, “It is clear that for too long, companies have been hiring private investigators who compromise the privacy of individuals with apparent impunity. Regulators must take responsibility for what happens on their watch and issue guidelines immediately to ensure that companies do not hire private investigators who break the law, with or without their knowledge.”
