These days it seems as though your personal information is just out there waiting for the wrong hands to pick it up. Nearly anyone can quickly and easily access your private data using surveillance devices – or “bugs,” as they are commonly called. An invasion of privacy may not seem like a big deal right now, but you will swiftly change your mind when it happens to you. Nationwide Legal Investigations can create a shield around you and can sweep the affected area for those pesky bugs.

What Is a Bug Sweep?

When Nationwide Legal Investigations sweeps for bugs, he or she is not responsible for removing critters from your property. Instead, Nationwide Legal Investigations will use high-tech equipment to determine whether or not your privacy is being invaded by an unwelcome source. By utilizing TSCM, which just stands for Technical Surveillance Countermeasures, Nationwide Legal Investigations can help to protect an individual or business from such an invasion.

Why Bug Sweeps Are Vital

Bug sweeps are designed to detect and uncover illegal surveillance devices from any given area. TSCM techniques are also able to discover and remedy technical security issues as well. With a good bug sweep provided by Nationwide Legal Investigations, you can regain your peace of mind knowing that your privacy is fully protected.

Commonly, people and businesses hire Nationwide Legal Investigations to conduct a thorough bug sweep because they believe that they are the victims of illegal spying. This may be due to the fact that surveillance and bugging are more common these days than ever before. In fact, a complete stranger can access all of your personal or professional data with just a few clicks of their mouse when they use the right equipment. For most people, that is a very scary thing to think about.

5 Interesting Facts to Think About
  • When was the last time you used your credit card to purchase something online or over the phone? This is one of the most common sources of identity theft.
  • Some spouses, while in the middle of a divorce, will plant surveillance equipment throughout the marital home in an effort to gather information for favor in court.
  • Surveillance equipment is often used during litigation, which allows the opposing side to gather your private information and use it against you in court.
  • Hidden cameras are often discovered planted in rental homes.
  • Businesses are targeted frequently by criminals who are out to steal valuable information and/or trade secrets.


The warning signs of bugging are all around us. Eavesdropping, electronic surveillance, and covert surveillance are all on a dramatic increase and a huge threat to corporations, government agencies, and anyone who has information that others want. This is due in part to the very competitive business commercial and political environment we live in, as well as the huge profits that the sale of stolen intelligence can bring. On a domestic front, divorce and asset division can bring a potential ex-spouse to bug and eavesdrop on their home to gain an advantage. And finally, high-net-worth clients are always susceptible to being bugged to gain information that could be used against them.  The ability to identify some of the signs of covert surveillance can help you to identify and deal with potential threats to your business, reputation, competitiveness, and bottom line before critical damage occurs.

Technical surveillance has shifted dramatically to remote monitoring through the use of cellular and Wi-Fi technologies.  Technical threats include:

  • Competitive proposals, quotes, or bids are being awarded to your competitors.
  • The contents and information of confidential documentation are quoted or referred to by outsiders.
  • There are signs of interference in the quality of your electronic communications such as emails, voice mails, and other digital communications.

Surveillance through technical processes involves safeguarding your information.  We all are at risk to have our information stolen through technical means that include:

  • Sudden continuous or intermittent interference to various systems including audio, video, and wireless communications.
  • Electrical outlets, wall plates, phone jacks, or fixtures and fittings seem to have been moved or are not straight when no work has been conducted.
  • New items (radios, clocks, phones, power adapter, lamp, calculator, etc.) suddenly appear in your office or home with no hint of how they got there.

With the availability of all types of eavesdropping bugging devices readily available on the internet and at spy shops, Nationwide Legal Investigations works with residential clients to perform in-depth technical bug sweeps to identify and locate hidden cameras, wireless devices, audio bugs, and recording units that are planted to acquire information through covert means.
