How technology is turning jealous spouses into private detectives. (The Telegraph. By Sophie Curtis. 19 Aug 2015)
According to private investigator Richard Martinez, a simple piece of software installed on a mobile phone can allow a jealous spouse to monitor all their partner’s movements, texts, emails and calls.
“If you can provide us with the IMEI number from his mobile, that’s all you need. Every time he sends or receives an email or a text, your mobile phone will get a copy, as well as the number it’s come from and gone to,” said Mr Martinez.
“Your mobile phone will also have the GPS location of his mobile phone 24/7, and you get surround sound as well, so you can then listen in on his mobile phone without him knowing.”
