When our clients have a lot of money, assets or complex child custody issues involved in their divorce case, there is a much higher probability that they will be the victim of spying.

Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 15, 2013

McCann Investigations, a Texas-based private investigations firm released a new video to accompany its case study titled Cyber Stalking and Spyware in Divorce Cases. Divorces can often become so contentious that warring spouses will go to any means to gain the upper-hand in the settlement. Spyware and key loggers that used to be only available to governments and corporations are now inexpensive and easily accessible to even the most novice computer user. Not only are monitoring applications more prevalent, GPS and physical listening devices are available for amateur spies. Emails, text messages and images as well as social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are becoming key sources of evidence in divorce cases. The installation of spyware and key loggers is becoming more and more common, a real possibility and no longer in the realm of the paranoid or crazy.

"When our clients have a lot of money, assets or complex child custody issues involved in their divorce case, there is a much higher probability they will be the victim of spying." says Daniel Weiss, Managing Partner at McCann Investigations. "A contentious divorce brings out the worst in people, and with the technology available, it's easier than ever to invade the privacy of another to either gain information or even to stalk them."

Using technology to gain the upper hand in a divorce settlement appears to be a growing trend. McCann Investigations implements counter measures to not only ensure that the spyware threat has been mitigated, but will prevent future cyber attacks from a soon to be ex-spouse or any other malicious third party.
