HENDERSON - Valentines' Day is known as the day of love. A day to show that special someone that you care. But not everyone's intentions are so pure.
Private investigators like one Henderson woman, who can't be identified due to her work, tend to see an increase in calls from doubtful lovers wanting to know what their significant others are up to.
"People have an extra girlfriend, extra boyfriend out there. Valentines Day brings that out in everybody," she said.
This investigator says she doesn't typically take this kinds of cases anymore. In fact, she says, hardly any professional detectives do. But that doesn't stop people -- mainly women according to this private I, -- from calling for ideas or searching on-line websites for help.
"I think it's just easier for people to cheat right now and get away with it. Most cheaters don't actually get caught. A lot of people think it would be easy to catch someone but sometimes it's not."
And it's amazing the steps some with go through to learn the trough. Some check their sweeties' cell phones, messages, e-mails; some even follow their lovers to see where they are going and who they are meeting.
But according to this investigator, sometimes the best thing you can do to learn the truth is simply come out and ask.
"You're at dinner and you just out right ask, 'are you cheating? Is there someone else? It shocks them so much that they actually will admit to it. I've seen that happen."
The investigator we spoke to says the internet has plenty of information to help catch cheaters. And she says, when a person finds out, anything can happen. Sometimes, it gets down right dangerous.
