Love rats beware: Watkins Ward Group Investigations explains how you can tell if someone is cheating


Brian Sladden investigates infidelity and says there are certain red flags that should make a partner worry

Love rats had best beware – a private investigator is telling people how they can spot a cheat.

Brian Sladden Senior Detective at Watkins Ward boasts: “I’ve caught cheats, love rats, whatever you wish to call them. It’s my speciality.”

A recent client called ‘Gill’ suspected her husband was cheating on her and sought Brian’s firm Watkins Ward Group Investigation’s services to prove it.

“It didn’t take us long to catch him out,” Brian said. “When we did it was a simple case of presenting the evidence to her.

She explained to us what it was like when she discovered her husband had been having an affair behind her back.

“Finding out your spouse has betrayed you is and will be one of the darkest moments of your life.”

Gill said: “I didn’t want to believe it. It’s just a fog of total disbelief.”

“I put some guilt on myself. It’s so painful. I just wanted to believe nothing was happening, until I just had to.”

“It was life shattering for me, absolutely life shattering. I felt worthless and betrayed.”
It was eight years into their marriage that ‘Gill’ began to notice changes.

“He was so clearly distant, all of a sudden he just wasn’t there,” she said. “He became vacant.”

“There was very little conversation and he found many excuses to be away from me. He basically found lots of places to go during the day.”

“It can be a great thing to get rid of someone so toxic in your life that you’re living with.”

With her relationship dissolving, ‘Gill’ suspected that her partner had found someone else. But how?

Brian believes that “if your gut is telling you something is not right, 99% of the time it’s right”.

However, Brian also says that there are many red flags to watch out for when the possibility of infidelity is on the table.

First and foremost, the physical changes, he says, are often the most obvious.
“Caring all the time about the time they dress, the spouse is coming home late, they are taking their phone with them everywhere, the code is locked or different, face down or on silent – these are all major warning signs.”

Smartphones are often a key cornerstone in Watkins Ward Group’s Investigations.

Unfaithful individuals are renowned for becoming overly protective over them, sleeping with them underneath their pillows, making sure nobody else can see their phone to hide messages, Snapchats, WhatsApp or even dating apps.

All of these clues would suggest that they are intent on finding something else outside of their current marriage or relationship.

Detailing their process, Sladden said: “We look at things such as professional online forensic analysis and detailed background profiling, covert surveillance and intelligence gathering, OSINT and other investigative methods.

“There’s a lot of different ways that people can get caught. And they do get caught.”

Watkins Ward Group Investigations – Husband, 26, caught romping with grandmother lover aged 72


A husband aged 26 was caught romping with his 72-year-old lover at a Premier Inn.
The other woman was 46 years his senior and old enough to be his grandmother.

It was a hammer blow to the lothario’s wife, who called in private detectives after fearing the worst.

Agents from Watkins Ward Group Investigations tracked the unlikely couple and presented the evidence to their client, who asked not to be identified.

Still coming to terms with the infidelity, the stunned 24-year-old wife said: “I just didn’t want to believe it.

“I put guilt on myself. I could not understand what I was hearing and seeing. When I viewed the video footage and saw who the other women was… Well, it was just a total fog of disbelief. This older women should have known better.”

It was understood the frisky pensioner was in hiding.

Watkins Ward Group, which has branches across the UK, was called in after Lyndsey became suspicious about her husband’s absences from the family home.

His personality had changed, too. The couple had been married for just a year. “He was distant all of a sudden,” said Lyndsey. “He wasn’t around. There was little conversation and he started to disappear. He said he was having to stay late and travel away for work.”

The agency sleuths opened a can of worms.

Lyndsey’s partner had been a frequent visitor to dating websites offering trysts with older women.

“They uncovered that he’d registered with several dating websites,” said Lyndsey. “What I was hearing reported back just didn’t seem to match the man I knew and loved.”

Surveillance tracked the cheating husband to a Premier Inn 60 miles from the family home.

The infidelity was confirmed the following morning, but even hardened investigators were shocked to discover the woman in this bizarre love triangle was a 72-year-old mum-of-two.

The mistress has four grandchildren. As yet, Lyndsey has not filed for divorce.

“It’s a difficult time at the moment, but it can be great to get rid of somebody so toxic in your life,” she said.

David, a senior detective with Watkins Ward Group Investigations, said: “Lyndsey suspected her husband was cheating on her and wanted to find out once and for all. It didn’t take us long to catch her husband out, and once we did, the details came as quite a shock”.

“It’s the physical signs that are the most obvious to watch out for. Changes in dress, coming home later and later. Taking their phone everywhere with them, leaving it face down… These are all warning signs – and the phone can be the key that reveals everything”.

“There are lots of ways that people get caught out – and they do get caught out”.

A spokesman for the agency said: “It’s not a fairy-tale ending, by any means. But, hopefully, Lyndsey’s future will contain more fairy godmothers than flirty grandmothers.”

New InsureTech solution launched to ward off legal threat from digital accessibility non-compliance


A new technology solution has been launched to help organisations demonstrate reasonable adjustment towards digital accessibility compliance, and ward off the threat of increasingly prevalent legal action in the USA.  AAAtraq is an automated compliance identification management system that allows organisations to understand their existing level of accessibility non-compliance risk exposure, and then work towards full compliance through a managed process.

The number of digital accessibility lawsuits filed against companies of all sizes in the USA increased by 183% between 2017 and 2018 , and with increasing media scrutiny, those numbers are expected to have risen substantially in 2019. In one of the more high-profile cases, Domino’s Pizza was found guilty of not making its website app accessible for use by people with visual impairments, and was forced to make adjustments to improve its user experience.

AAAtraq is a new service that wants to reverse these trends, by giving website owners a low cost, fast track route to protecting their organisations from the risks of legal action with an easy to use managed service. As well as a personalised pathway to compliance, subscribers receive an AAAtraq ‘accessibility rating’ badge that can be displayed on websites warning those looking to take legal action that they are working towards digital compliance. Complementary insurance—currently for US-based organisations—with up to a US$50,000 benefit limit from global carrier BRIT adds further protection.

AAAtraq assesses current levels of risk, provides guidance to demonstrate reasonable adjustment and enables ongoing certification. A complementary ‘risk profile’ is accessible immediately online, helping any organization to quickly understand if their website is currently compliant and the precise level of risk they face.

A monthly subscription service provides access to AAAtraq’s full managed service, which offers an automated approach to achieving ongoing compliance. This includes: a guided methodology and full digital supplier management, AI based training and education for developers and content producers, to ensure they understand their responsibilities; benchmarking and KPIs to measure improvements.

An inherent part of the non-compliance problem, according to CEO Lawrence Shaw, is that that accessibility legislation has become overly complicated. “Organisations are not deliberately non-compliant, but the level of misinformation in circulation coupled with a succession of successful legal cases in the US, has created the perfect storm,” he says.

This is because of three factors: opportunistic lawyers seeking financial rewards, digital suppliers who are not being held accountable by their clients and end user organisations who are too reliant on third party suppliers and unsure of their responsibilities according to the accessibility legislation to demonstrate ‘reasonable adjustment’.

“Digital inaccessibility lawsuits are one of the fastest growing financial risks for organisations who are literally ‘burying their heads in the sand’ because they don’t understand the accessibility legislation and mistakenly believe it is difficult and expensive to comply,” concludes Shaw.
