The work that Private Detective Chelsea does is a testimony to how someone can be watching all you do without your knowledge, proving that private investigation is real, not just a fiction act in a movie. Private Detective Chelsea ( understand why are private investigators held to a higher standard, it is because the job holds a lot of responsibility, trust and liability. Our willing friend, helped us carry out an experiment on him.
On your walk to the bus stop, it would be difficult to imagine that there is someone a few steps behind you who is recording a video of each move you make. They shadow you, note every person you speak to and write everything you talk about.
However, that is just the thing that happened to our friend, since Private Detective Chelsea in Greater London followed her for the entire day. Our friend said “I thought that I would know if I was being filmed by someone but I didn’t notice the investigator at all” about the day when we were tracking her.
The investigator was able to track her from her apartment in Chelsea in Greater London, onto the bus and all the way to her job, equipped with DSLR camera, a Covert Camera Recorder and many other gadgets, without ever becoming suspicious.
Speaking about the day in question, the friend said – “I knew at some point that week I was going to be followed for research – so I had a heightened awareness of my surroundings. Despite this, I failed to see even a single thing and I am shocked. I never saw the investigator at all though I was sure I would be able to know if someone shot a video or took my photo in public but I did not notice the investigator at all”.
Once she got to work without realising that she was being trailed, the woman stepped out of the building to see a friend. The woman and her friend went to a bar nearby and the Private Detective Chelsea followed them there, positioned themselves close enough to record and report on the conversation that the pair had, see what they were drinking, where the proceeded to and how intense the discussion was. From the report received it was obvious that the investigator had been recording from under the table and even had very good close up images of the friends.
Excerpts from the report – “The man was affectionate with subject as they walked, often laying his hand on her. The appeared to be at ease with each other’s company. When they settled down, the man goes to the bar, purchases two drinks and sits again at the table. They had what seemed like a very interesting dialogue continuously”.
Our friend received a 17 page document that detailed every single move she made that morning, having been trailed for 6 hours. A video that lasted 15 minutes, 50 photos and a couple of maps that showed her way to work and exactly where she went with that day with her friend. .
Our friend reacted by saying – “I didn’t think this sort of thing happened in real life”. Yeah, it appears to be a fun and entertainment element in the movies but actually being chased – without knowing about it – is fearful”.
