Cult Investigations & Human trafficking investigations really are often one and the same.  We use to see them separately because we were concentrating on cults being religious.Sometimes they are and those can be very deadly.  Here is a list of warning signs you should look for in a cult and we will be happy to assist you with a more complete picture once we are retained and working with you and your family to regain your loved one back to sanity and safety:

Cult Members are discouraged from association with members who leave the cult and or unsupportive family and friends.  Cult members are told to shun, disassociate with former members accusing those who left as being away from God, in sin, or negative .  

Cult leader demands and members stress absolute loyalty to the leader and to a lesser extent, key people.

Cult leader selects spys to hover over and infiltrate members, and former members.

Cult leader lets others do the "dirty work" but is directly influencing behind the scenes.

Cult leader especially targets members, families, and even former members who have assets.  Those assets could be land, money, possessions, influence, relationships to others who may possess the same.

Cult leaders control money, access and activities of all but the very close loyal subjects.

Cult leaders use front people to win new members by sending out those people who are affable and can mix in new communities with favor.  Men and women or young people are used to draw in the new members by paying constant attention to them.  One situation I have observed is the use of social networking and or texting to completely control the time and energy of someone who is being groomed for membership in the inner circle.  Additionally members of the opposite sex are encouaged to spend hours  a day and night on the phone or in person visiting targets causing confusion about the real motives.

Cult leaders are notorious for praising their targets with flattery at one moment then shooting them down and criticizing the next.  Members and targets alike are meant to feel unstable and not secure about their standing and acceptance in the group.

The goal is domination and subjugation and to force someone into compliance there is constant manipulation and emotional curve balls thrown at the targets.

THE LOVE BUG everyone is always saying  "I love youIsolation from family and old friends Fasting & Praying, Late night or all night spiritual activity after working all day.

Food Deprivation while the cult leader enjoys eating every day and night getting fatter while members are losing muscle mass and weight with nutriitional deficit.

No TV or Radio access only Christian music approved of by cult leader although he may watch TV and listen to the radio.

No conversations by phone, social media or online that the cult leader is not privy to and controlling.

Limited access to the public, cult members are kept away from the public in general unless they are doing ministry and then they are closely watched by the cult leader and other members.

Not allowed to visit outside the cult or close allies of the cult and are strongly rebuked for speaking or visiting with anyone outside of the inner circle or those who are being manipulated and groomed for membership.

Type of clothing is controlled sometimes plain or dull appearance is encouraged.

False doctrines are not disussed with outsiders so cult leader can hide this from new inductees, often cult leaders refuse to publicize statement of faith or beliefs.

Non Christian books are discouraged and some cult leaders only allow books they approve of that cater to their wrong doctrine and indoctrination. 

Cult members are told they are working for God and then they don't get paid so they have no way to have independence, get away, buy their own clothes or personal care products. They often are not allowed private use of cell phones and even their online presence is monitored.

Cult members are forced to depend upon the cult leader or his resources for all their needs including books, bible, paper, toliteries, clothing, food, communication.

Cult members are not allowed to own cell phones, laptops or other electronic devices as they must be shared with others as the cult leader sees fit.

Cult members are often not allowed to  freely marry someone of their choosing,and only marry inside the group with the cult leaders approval and confirmation from his god, which is often him.  I say him because most cults are lead by narcisstic egomaniac men who devalue, abuse and use women.

Cult members marriages are sometimes broke up, and cult members are reassigned to other spouses, to the cult leader himself or celibacy.

Cult members may experience years of celibacy because the cult leader has not found anyone suitable to marry his members resulting in a loss of family life for cult members.

Cult members children become part of the cult and they must answer to a variety of adults espcially the cult leader.

Cult leader claims he is above the accountability of the group and accountable to no one but God and often gets "messages" from God for cult members. Cult leaders claim they talk to "God" all the time and He talks back verbally.  They get weird messages, change in a moment's notice the direction because they heard from "God."

Cult leaders teach cult members that outsiders are the enemy and anyone who questions the cult is told that it is the devil in them or the devil and that they are in rebellion against God.

Cult leader does not tolerate anyone questioning his authority inside the cult and outside the cult, members are encouraged to question, stalk, bully and intimidate anyone outside the cult or those who leave the cult

For those who try leave the cult, the cult leader will use all forms of brainwashing techniques implemented by all the cult members, intimidation, shame, guilt, the love bug, continued contact by group members and or the leader and his cronies to regain control over the member who is trying to leave or who has left.

Gang Stalking of members is very widespread.  

People who are old, fragile or have money and assets are handled with the love bug and overwhelming force by the cult members who appear to be full of love for the intended target.  After the target is won over there will be increasing abuse of the target to insure control is maintained.  The target will be in a state of confusion and unable to defend him or herself as the money and assets are slowly drained and or turned over to the cult leader.

There are other areas of concern as well but I hope this helps someone.  If you need an investigation conducted please email us at or call us at 601-480-3181

What To Do If You Expect Your Spouse Is Cheating

 Posted by

Try not to panic. Don't talk to too many people about it. Do call a private investigator and quietly check. The investigator should know the right questions to ask to gather enough information about your spouse, and the signs of cheating to come up with a strategic plan to get to the truth. Avoid some PI's who don't probe a lot, offer a free consultation, and just want to get your money.

A good PI take the time to learn all he or she can before asking for a retainer. Then they should be able to investigate the matter over the course of a week or less and establish your spouses habits and if they are cheating. Of course there are times that spouses only cheat on business trips etc but then you would need to do cell phone forensics and or computer forensics to see if there has been phone and internet communication or viewing pornography.

Think about what you want to do with the evidence. Is the situation so far gone that you just want to use it for a divorce, or do you want to go to counseling and save your marriage. A good investigator will leave that up to you and not try to push you in either direction.

Make sure your investigator has video and pictures with date time stamp accounting for the time on surveillance. Expect them to review backgrounds of potential third parties. Also expect them to encourage you to get an attorney if there is a concern that the other party may be doing the same. The investigator should work within the scope of the law always because any information obtained illegally will be thrown out of court. That means no wire tapping, no listening devices of any kind and only recording according to your state laws on recording conversations, one party, two party, all parties. Also you can use a GPS if you are a part owner or registrant, if it is a company vehicle you cannot do that as you have no legal right and any information obtained will be thrown out in court. You can do cell or computer forensics if you are a joint user of the same, if not then you can ask your attorney to subpoena those devices for tests.

If you are concerned about whether a child of the marriage is yours or not there is a way to forensically test yourself and the child before you take legal action. Use our DNA mobile Testing Lab. The court will revisit that area themselves possibly but at least you will know where you stand in advance.

There is often a question of drug abuse or gambling and those are areas that can be examined as well as any habit which dramatically impacts the marital and family relationship if not controlled or worked on can be the basis for a strong position legally.

I have a list of things I go over with my clients to see if there is a suspicion of cheating. I also encourage my clients to be thinking about engaging an attorney. One of the observations I have made is that clients often go to an attorney before they have any real hard evidence and then there is no money left for an investigation and the client is left unprepared and often the best parent is out maneuvered by the other side's attorney and finds themselves asking what went wrong. Having a private investigator get to the truth is as critical as having legal representation. If an attorney does not want to deal with a private investigator and his or her findings run as fast as you can away from that attorney and find one who will embrace all the evidence from you and your PI and then appropriately use the evidence that is pertinent and relevant and work with your PI to target areas that the lawyer thinks will be most useful.

Realize your private investigator is going to work hard to get to the truth for you and your case. If you need help you can get in touch with me and I will help you find someone in your area.

You have been arrested or are about to be arrested, what do you do?  Retain an attorney and a private investigator.  A good attorney will want your case to be investigated,express concern if your potential or current attorney does not seem motivated to use a private investigator.

I cannot tell you how many times I have talked to clients after they took a plea or were convicted and their attorney did not put on character witnesses, object reasonably to evidence or witnesses or fight for the client to have the best possible defense.  I know some good attorneys but unfortunately just like anyone else out there bad attorneys with or incompetent attorneys exist.    You are paying your attorney.  If you were paying a doctor and he was giving you prescriptions that were not working or treatment for an illness you didn't have would you keep paying him or her.  The same is true for attorneys, get a good one, interview them, ask them for references, ask them how long they have been practicing and what their success rate is in getting a good deal for pleas or getting their clients acquitted.  Don't use a generalist or someone whose speciality is in another field just because your aunty used him or her several times, you need an excellent criminal defense attorney.

Sometimes law firms will employ their own investigators, and if they specialize in criminal law they ought to be more than paralegals or secretaries, the person investigating your case should have experience investigating.

Often though you will need to hire your own Private Investigator.  Set up an interview, if the PI is not willing to meet personally with you and give you an hour of their time as a courtesy then look elsewhere.  Run from any PI who brags too much, who does not listen to your version of the situation and who is not willing to get out there and investigate, talking to all potential witnesses, and digging.  Make sure the PI is not buddies with the local sheriff or police who arrested you.   Be willing to pay your investigator because what they uncover will be invaluable to your attorney and may save your life, keep you out of jail or mitigate the damages.

A good PI should be able to give you references of cases he or she has worked on, even if they are not criminal cases, someone who can vouch for his honesty and diligence and also a professional reference of someone who has known him or her for a long time.  Don't just grab someone who has a shiny new office, car or web site.  Spend a little time on the phone with them and set up a meeting.  If a PI is not willing to prove himself or herself a little before talking money you are probably already in trouble.

Never assume because you are innocent, the case is a slam dunk, innocent people go to prison or jail every day.  Strange things happen, people get framed, law enforcement is trying to close a case due to public or political pressure, your circumstances look bad and the cops really believe you did it, and so on.  Get the best possible team together to make sure you get a legal and fair defense which is your right under the United States Constitution.

If you have already been convicted, all is not lost, but think carefully about your appeal.  Did your attorney do the very best he or she could do for you, and there are just some appellate points due to the other side or judicial decisions?  Fine if you believe in your attorney but in some cases it is time to get another attorney who has experience in appeals.  Also consider that in many jurisdictions the appellate court will NOT overturn lower court decisions without something really remarkable as they are conservative courts who support most lower court decisions.  

Once you have won your appeal review the above, you need a good attorney to handle a deal or a new trial and now more than ever you need a good Private Investigator to uncover things that were missed the first time around and also by now some witnesses may be more willing to talk, and more is known about what was covered up, or what the other side thinks they have on you.

The most important person in your defense is YOU. Trust your gut instincts, don't just trust everyone who promises it's going to be ok, verify and ask questions every step of the way, stay informed, but also let your PI do his or her job and find out the truth for you and your attorney.


The Phony Consumer Report Beware of Extortionists

There are some so called consumer complaint web sites which are basically embezzlement sites.  They will tell you that you cannot pay to get erroneous or phony or retaliatory reports off their web site.  They tell you though you can pay an independent arbitrator some $2000  or more per report and agreements and negotiations can be made, but they NEVER take it off their site.
 What happens if the poster who complained is not a client, consumer or customer but a criminal who was investigated, or a bad pervert who was caught, or some competition wishing to retaliate.  I have not found one credible person to be on these complaints for the most part, except for the publicly known criminals which are later arrested and prosecuted.  Often times it is those very own criminals who post the horrendous lies about good business people and companies.  These sites are  nothing like REAL CONSUMER REPORTS which interviews both sides and presents a fair finding of their own volition not because someone is paying them advertising or not because they are getting kick backs..

The best way to evaluate a PI's credibility is the same way you would assess a medical doctor, lawyer or a good restaurant or any other professional or company.  Check out what the other clients or  consumers are saying on their web site, call references, give them a little business and see how they handle your confidentiality and do they behave in a compassionate professional manner.  Choose someone who cares about your needs and concerns and not only focused on money.  If they are not wiling to give you a complimentary phone or in person interview they probably are not going to give you any real feedback or interaction about your case.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet, and also trust your instincts.

People who are already struggling with substance abuse, those who tend to lose their patience and abuse their children, or people who are cheating or gambling tend to accelerate their behaviors at the holiday season.  
Stress at holidays in general brings out the worst in an already bad situation.  This is a good time to be checking phone records if you have legal access, checking online activity and conducting surveillance.  People tend to gamble more and misuse drugs and or alcohol.

At Accurate Investigations, LLC we keep your priorities in mind, we devise a strategy with you to accomplish your goals, reach your objectives and get to the truth.  Sometimes it is hard to believe that a spouse who you have been married to for many years has gone off the deep end in an illicit relationship, substance abuse, gambling or losing their temper with your children or at the very worse allowing a boyfriend or husband to molest your precious children.

Please give us a call and we will assist you during this holiday season.  Your distressful situation is our concern and we will do our best to get the evidence you need for court, or to work on a plan of therapy to repair your marriage.

I am not a lawyer but I investigate a fair amount of child custody cases.  If I assess a situation where a potential client comes to me with false allegations, vindictiveness or no legitimate reason I can see or believe to limit the other parties access to children, I refuse the case.  I have counseled clients to work with the other party as much as possible on the issue of their children.  Children suffer so much when they cannot spend equal time or as much time as they need or want to with the both of their parents. 

Except in the case of abuse or active addiction, I see no reason why children should not have access to both parents.  Usually this comes down to power, control and money.  These have NO PLACE in the health and well being of children except that the children should understand both Mommy and Daddy have equal authority and that both will provide for them to the best of their ability.  It is so bad for children to know that one or the other parent has to "obey" the other parent in order to have access to their children.  Sure the court made the ruling but the children often don't understand this, they somehow know that the custodial parent could let them see the other more often if they wanted to. 

If parents only knew how in most cases with holding a child from another parent without serious case will damage their children for life, maybe they would care.  We have wounded, damaged people having children who use them as pawns to act out their own frustrations or anger from their own childhood.  I am for shared legal and physical custody and for parents to be forced to work together by the courts.  I am also for mediation where people have to work out their differences in counseling and only in rare situations have to fight in court for the safety or well being of their children.  As a private investigator I believe no judge should rip any child away from shared custody unless there is hard evidence of abuse or addiction.  Even  adulterers have rights to parent their children in as close as possible to the way they did when the family lived together.  I am passionate for children.  I grew up in an imperfect home where divorce was not an option and in spite of things I wished could have been different, my parents presented a united front to us six kids and that developed some really good ethics and habits in our lives.
