Catching a Cheater In The Digital Age

Detroit’s mayor Kwame Kilpatrick got caught cheating on his wife with his Chief of Staff Christine Beatty via sexy text messages the two shared. Then, there’s Tiger Woods’ most outspoken mistress Jaimee Grubbs who produced a digital paper trail to the golf star’s infidelity that made America’s jaw drop with all the naughty texts the two of them allegedly shared. And I’m sure many of us have, or have been tempted to, go through the cell phones of our partners to find out if they’re being unfaithful. Well one iPhone app just made it a little bit harder to catch a cheetah. Tiger Text erases text messages from the recipients’ phones, eliminating incrimination. According to NYPost, senders who use the Tiger Text app can decide how long they’d like the text massage to stay on a receiver’s cell phone before it is permanently deleted. Users may also select a “delete or read” setting that sets a certain time for the recipient to open the message before it “self-destructs.” Of course, if you really want to check up on your man’s text messaging, a computer forensics specialist will tell you that there’s no real way to erase a text messages. Software like Mobiledit Forensics uncovers deleted messages. It’s much easier to find evidence of an affair on Facebook. Divorce lawyers are finding more and more that the popular social networking site provides key evidence into a spouse’s extramarital life. “Every client I’ve seen in the last six months had a Facebook page,” VP of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Ken Altshuler told NYPost, “and the first piece of advice I give them is to terminate their page immediately.” In the digital age, cheaters are becoming much more tech-savvy in how they cover their behinds. What many of them don’t realize is when you send something off into cyber space, those things hardly ever go away. With a little digging, a lot can be uncovered. However, if we have to go to the lengths of buying special software to find our boyfriends’ deleted text messages or breaking into our husbands’ Facebook account, it’s probably time to hack into our relationships and decipher whether or not we should stay connected or log off. How about you? Would you go through your man’s Facebook or text messages to find out if he’s cheating? Read More:
