Tennessee State Code TCA 39-13-606 allows for a vehicle to be tracked if all registered owners of the vehicle have consented. Many times a client is not able to legally track a spouse or partner’s vehicle. If you are looking for a way to legally track someone there are a few options. Currently there are no laws in place to address tracking a cell phone with an app. Iphone has a FindAFriend app that can be turned on and off by user at anytime. We have found FindAFriend is not accurate, many times it will show the phone up to a mile away from its actual location. If you are experiencing this flaw in the system, refresh the app, maybe see if the person will text you back so the app can pick up a more accurate location. Find My IPhone is app that have found to be accurate. However, a person must have access to the password on someone’s ICloud account to use Find My IPhone. Another option is to track your own vehicle then trade vehicles with your partner. We had one case where the husband traded vehicles with his wife telling her he was going out of town. He told his wife that since her car was better on gas he preferred taking her car. Also he could make sure it was driving correctly and get an oil change. Further, at the appropriate time, the husband called his brother, had his brother three way call the wife, making the wife think her husband was far away at his brothers’s house. As soon as she thought her husband was far away she drove to her paramour’s residence. She was very shocked when she returned home to find her husband waiting with a video of her activities in hand. The penalty for tracking someone’s vehicle is pretty stiff so don’t track it unless you own it.
Tis the Season to make sure all is well at home. I have an unmarried client. She has a lot of money. It is so hard for a woman to find a decent man in this world now add money to the equation and it can be nearly impossible. She called this Female Private Investigator for the fourth time in our relationship. She thought she had a good catch. My client lives in Brentwood, she always checks out her new date by having me run a background check. Well the first thing we noticed is his address was not what he said, so that was a red flag. He claimed to have lived at 500 Private Road, Nashville Tennessee when he really lived at 577 Private Road. What is the difference? 500 is a big fine home worth upwards of $400,000, while 577 is a fully gated apartment complex. Well okay she said, we better have a look at where he really lives. So I waited for him to return from my clients dinner party. I saw him enter the apartment complex. He parked near his apartment and then …boom a female approached his truck, gave him a hug and got in with him. I followed him to WalMart where he purchased many gifts for his lovely companion. I listened to them talk, they were obviously intimate with one another. My client was upset but happy to know the truth. She said “do you know how much money you just saved me.” I am happy to do my job I said. She said I was her favorite person in Nashville. I am just doing what I am suppose to. Seek and ye shall find I said.
Third day of surveillance in Franklin Tennessee. Our subject is suppose to be unable to work. LOL…This morning I was glad I couldn’t sleep. I went on over there early arriving at 5:40 am. Within 5 minutes of my arrival the subject exits his home and proceeds to the interstate. After following him to Columbia Tennessee, I witnessed this man carry a 8 foot ladder 50 feet from a small office building to a garage under construction. He opened up a cabinet near the garage and pulled out a drill. He climbed the ladder with the drill in his right hand while climbing to very top of the ladder. He stood on the second step from the top as his began drilling into the structure. About 15 minutes later two men arrived and appeared ready to work. The subject came down from the ladder to help the other two gentlemen carry 2×4’s from the small office to the garage. This subject has made this female private investigator very happy. I continued to video tape the activities while I called my client. The case is not over because we have plenty of footage of the unable to work subject working very hard. I even got a close up of the sweat on his brow. 🙂 YEE HAW!
Just started this case. Hard house to watch. My subject is suppose to be completely incapacitated, only able to get around with a wheel chair. Well today I saw him pulling a luggage cart that seemed very heavy. Then he unloaded the luggage cart into his van. He was tossing the bags into the side door of the van. I got so tickled. If he only knew how wonderful his actions are too me. I followed him to a storage unit where he tossed the bags into the small garage type of unit. I was so glad the storage unit sat below a hill. I was able to sit higher than this man and get some great footage. My client will be very happy. I will be watching him all week. I am excited about what he might do next. 🙂
