Telephone Tapping Investigations
Telephone tapping is the targeted, illegal practice of planting electronic devices that can listen in and record all phone calls made from a particular phone or phone line.
It is too easy to tap into landlines phones, simply by planting a device inside the phone itself, or even in the telephone junction box that controls the targeted phone line, or even in the telephone box in the basement of apartment buildings. The victim whose phone is being tapped will be none the wiser without the proper technology being used to detect the tap. Technology has advanced to the point where taps can record voices and use voice recognition software to identify speakers on both ends of the call. The practice is often used as a preliminary information gathering technique that could lead to a far more serious threat, such as terrorist attacks, corporate espionage, and more. If you suspect that your phones are being tapped, you should contact ICS immediately. Our investigators are trained to detect even the most advanced wiretap devices, and we will work quickly to ensure that your privacy is protected. Call today for a free consultation!
Telephone Tapping Investigations Information:
- Common telephone tapping devices:
- Acoustic Bugs: the simplest listening device, these are not electronic devices. Acoustic bugs allow one to eavesdrop using a drinking glass, stethoscope, rubber tubes, or tape recorders in close proximity to the person speaking.
- Ultrasonic or VLF Bug: these devices convert sound into an audio signal which cannot be heard by human ears, then intercept that sound wave and convert it back to audible frequencies to be recorded and listened to on the eavesdroppers’ hardware
- Radio Frequency Bug: these devices are the most common, using a transmitter to capture sounds and transport the audio signal to another location
- Optical Bug: these devices convert sounds into an optical pulse that can be transmitted and recorded
- Techniques employed by ICS:
- Visual and electronic sweeps of the home, vehicles, and office to detect the following:
- Hidden microphones
