Honey Trapping – Honey Trap by Private Investigator Switzerland (Swiss Detective Agency)
Updated: Oct 28, 2022
What is Honey Trapping or honey trap? Honey Trapping or Honey Trap is something that is very attractive and attracts a lot of people. Sometimes it can be the use of one attractive person to get information from someone about something.
Honey trapping is an investigative practice involving the use of romantic or sexual relationships for interpersonal, industry, or monetary purposes. The honey pot or trap involves making contact with an individual who has information or resources required by a group or individual; the trapper will then seek to entice the target into a false relationship (which may or may not include actual physical involvement) in which they can glean information or influence over the target.
Our company is often employed to create a honey pot by wives, husbands, and other partners or family members, usually when an illicit romantic affair is suspected of the "target", or subject of the investigation.
Each assignment varies depending on what the investigative agency and client decide on during their prior consultation. A common assignment consists of the agent initiating contact with the subject through face-to-face interaction. The agent will attempt to take the communication further into other outlets including e-mail, text messaging, phone calls, etc. The step after this can be considered the most crucial moment of the assignment. The agent will propose a second meeting with the subject. Whether the subject agrees to further communication will determine whether the assignment will go deeper or come to an end.
Hotels, Motels, and SPA Resorts are often used as a meeting place, not for sexual intercourse, but to determine whether the subject intends for the relationship to escalate. Once the investigation comes to an end, the agent will turn over any record of communication they had with the subject. Other documents that are recorded include photographs, videos, venue appointments, etc.
