A counter observation involves observing the client with an intention to determine whether they are under surveillance by other people. An observation is often ordered by partners who suspect infidelity, but it can also be conducted by criminals. Such an observation may be performed with the aim of breaking into someone’s house, stealing a car or kidnapping a child or another close family, e.g. for ransom. Therefore, a counter observation is intended not only to discover if and why we are being observed, but also to take actions that will make it possible to avoid, discourage or eliminate observations by our enemies.
