How can I tell If my Telephone Lines Are Bugged?
Although this is probably one of the most commonly asked questions, the only true way to determine if your lines are being intercepted is to have your lines checked by a professional using state of the art electronic countermeasure equipment. A true professional should have at least one device utilizing "TDR" or time domain reflectometry in their arsenal. There are some general warning signs which might indicate that you have a problem. These can include but are not limited to a "beep" tone, clicking, crackling, humming or other unusual noises. Crosstalk, a drop in volume, poor performance or even not getting an immidiet dial tone when you pick up the handset. You should always remember that the best wire taps, such as those obtained legally by means of a court order, are set up at the telephone company's central office and are virtually undetectable.
Is My Information Kept Confidential?

our investigations and findings are your property and can only be released and reported to the person that
