The debate continues about the legality
of GPS tracking systems, and for good reason. A Sioux City, Iowa man, 25, decided to place a GPS tracking system in his estranged wife’s vehicle, with the intent to cause harm according to KCCI.com, a Des Moines, Iowa news station.
Unbeknownst to Ralph Rogers’ wife, the system was placed in her car before she took off. Investigators reported that once the device revealed that she had stopped in a residential area in South Sioux City, Nebraska, which, conveniently, is approximately a 5 mile distance from Sioux City, Iowa. Rogers went to confront her with his handgun in tow.
Upon arrival, Rogers invaded the home, assaulted a person while inside, and kidnapped his unwilling wife back to his house.
Ralph Rogers was charged with kidnapping, two weapons charges, and interstate stalking. He was ultimately convicted of interstate stalking and one of the weapons charges, with a sentencing pending.
There is a fine line between what is considered private vs. public. But when these devices are used to track and, in due course, cause harm to another person, where must this line be drawn?
Investigators at ICU Investigations are trained to detect, locate, and remove tracking devices to ensure the safety of others and to guarantee that the reasonable expectations of privacy are met.
Askmen.com is reporting the top ten reasons that WOMEN cheat. Women haven’t come close to exceeding the percentage of male cheaters, but according to an American Sexual Behavior study, “14% of married women have cheated at least once, compared to 22% of married men,” which proves an increase and the reasons why women are cheating more often are listed below:
10. Lack of Sex
It is common to make sex a last resort in your relationship when you have demanding jobs, demanding children, demanding pets, demanding households, etc. to take care of before you put your partner’s needs first. But if you are not showing your wife the lust and love she craves, she may resort to finding the feelings with someone else willing to give them to her.
9. Unleashing the “Inner-Kitten”
Watch out for major life changes ranging anywhere from “major weight loss, new job, new friends, mid-life crisis, etc.” She may be feeling sexier, in a position of power, or maybe scared of her new situation. If you don’t take the time to listen to what she’s feeling and reassure her, someone else will in more ways than one.
8. Confidence Issues
We all know the woman that fishes for compliments or complains about her weight or has no self-confidence whatsoever. If your wife or girlfriend is one of those women, chances are she’s not feeling sexy around you; either because you’re not telling her or you’re not showing her…or both. “Sex can be an instant pick-me-up; a self-esteem booster that makes women feel sexier, more beautiful and more loved.” Once again, if she’s not getting it from you, the decision to sleep with someone that shows her some flattery and attention seems like a good one.
7. The Settling of Scores
You made a BIG mistake. Maybe you lied, blew your life savings at the casino, lost her dog, etc. No matter your mistake, trust has been violated. “She feels wounded and betrayed — and wants to hurt you the same way you hurt her.” Some women resort to cheating as payback for their man’s mistakes.
6. Lacking Intimacy
Ok. So you have sex with your wife or girlfriend. That doesn’t exactly constitute a strong connection in a relationship. This is where the emotional part comes in. You married your wife because you love her, not for your sexual satisfaction. “It’s touching, kissing, cuddling, and communicating. Women crave it, and she could seek it elsewhere if she’s not getting it at home.”
5. Don’t Take Her for Granted
Try being a maid, a chef, a chauffeur, a coach, a babysitter, a human calendar and alarm clock all in one day. What makes that situation even worse is no one even acknowledges the hard work she puts in at her job, let alone all of the aforementioned duties. She’s tired and wants an escape; another man that recognizes her accomplishments and victories of the day.
4. Express Emotion
You no longer show emotion = she’s moving on. Without your emotional presence in your relationship, she can’t see this working any further.
Without exciting, spontaneous sex, going to bed can get REAL boring. Being in a monogamous relationship doesn’t mean the fun is sucked out of everything. But if you see it that way and are content with doing the same thing over and over again, she may have a different viewpoint and seek new and exciting men.
2. It’s Already Over
She cheats on you as an excuse to leave. She has nothing left to give in the relationship and instead of fixing it, she takes the easy way out.
1. The Ultimate Revenge
You cheated and she’s going to get you back the best way she knows how. “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” It is what it is, and this simply speaks for itself.
For whatever the reason she has chosen to be unfaithful, you have options. ICU Investigations is here to help you prove your suspicions in a safe and indisputable way. Contact ICU Investigations today for your free consultation.
With online dating reporting record numbers in revenue for 2012, according to Fast Company, and expected to continuously rise, ThreatMetrix has compiled a list to increase awareness of the top five threats online daters may face while navigating the world of cyber love.
Phony Dating Profiles – Creating phony profiles using fabricated information and fake photographs allows “cybercriminals” to connect with mass amounts of people. After a little sweet-talking and schmoozing to earn some trust, you may receive a link for you to click on, which ultimately implants malware used to acquire banking and credit card information.
Romance Scams – Using these phony profiles, criminals may earn your trust over an extended period of time by truly making you feel loved and wanted; so much so, that they need to see you as soon as possible. Next comes a request for a wire transfer for the purpose of buying a plane ticket, you consent, and your money (and online match) have fallen off the grid.
Mobile Security – Before downloading mobile applications to your smart phone, take the time to read through the agreements. Most people agree to these apps that use your GPS to locate you, which allows these criminals to see your location by tapping into these features. Take caution in telling your online mate that you will be on vacation, away for the weekend, etc. They may use this opportunity to break in to your house, considering they already know where it is.
Testing Credit Cards – Some criminals use the dating site platform to test the functionality of your stolen card. If the membership goes through, they will take the liberty of buying “physical goods.” If you are a member of a dating site, make sure you regularly check your account to make sure there are no fraudulent charges and your financial information hasn’t been compromised.
Identity Theft – Supplemental applications downloaded from dating sites onto your smart phone, even Facebook, can ask users for access to your address book. Once these applications have opened up a pathway to your contacts, criminals can tap in, and eventually steal more important financial and person data, which goes hand-in-hand with reading agreements and terms and conditions of applications before accepting it.
Net-security.org suggests that “the most effective way for consumers to stay safe when online dating is to use caution and only register for credible dating sites that have sophisticated cybersecurity solutions in place.” The staff at ICU Investigations agrees, and if you feel you may have been the victim of fraud or a fraud scam, contact us today to start a formal investigation.
