If you suspect your significant other may be leading a double life behind your back, the best course of action is obviously to determine if your suspicions are correct. Since voluntary admissions, lie detector tests and truth serums are unlikely to be offered up by a cheating partner, you’ll have to get smart in order to catch your cheater red-handed.
When a relationship has already soured to the point of lies and suspicion, the most common way to obtain solid proof of cheating is to spy on the suspected cheater of course. One of the most common methods of checking up on a wayward partner in the past was to hire a private investigator to see exactly what goes on when you’re not around. However, a private investigator is definitely not the most inexpensive or accessible option in today’s world of instant communication. Learning to be a spy is not really a viable option either, so, even if you don’t have the kind of money it takes to hire a private investigator, you do have the option of using your partner’s cell phone to discover evidence of cheating.
Cheating partners will use their cell phones to talk with their lovers instead of a land-line house phone because they are less likely to get caught that way. If a cheater has used a home phone, but has deleted the records of mysterious incoming phone calls, you can still dial *69 to obtain the number of the last incoming call. This will allow you to put the suspicious number through a reverse phone number search and generate a name and address to go with it.
If you can actually get your hands on the suspected cheater’s cell phone, you can check the incoming and outgoing log history for suspicious activity like names and numbers you don’t recognize. Look for repeated calls to the same number many times during a single day as that is almost a certain sign that your significant other is cheating on you. In addition to checking the incoming and outgoing call history, be sure to check out any stored text and pictures messages that also might contain incriminating evidence of cheating.
Because text messaging is such a favorite method of silent communication between illicit partners, a cheater may try to delete the texting evidence on a regular basis. However, few people realize that the records of deleted text messages remain buried deep within the SIM card of a cell phone, and if you can borrow the phone long enough to remove the SIM card, a data recovery service can easily recover the deleted texts. The deleted photos can also be a treasure trove of cheating evidence because, as they say, a picture can be worth a thousand word or characters in this particular case.
