The Ladies' Detective Agency Catches Cheating Men

All-Female Detective Agency Catches Cheating Men

Women win when men stray when the Ladies' Detective Agency is on the case. Rebecca Sutton, who's only 25, found her calling when she suspected her husband was cheating. She called private detectives, but they either made her feel silly or scared her away with unreasonable fees. One PI course later and a staff of beautiful woman, and she's running a real ladies' detective agency in Manchester, England.

I'd say this has all the makings of a mystery series, but it already echoes the 1989 bestselling novel The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency and the British television series with the same name. But in real life, catching a cheater is serious business.

Following a man, or paying someone to, is one thing, but Sutton offers another service called honey traps sans the espionage. This is for women who want to know if their husband would cheat when presented with the opportunity. Girlfriends and wives select the man's type (Sutton employs average, plus-size, and model-like women) to be sent to seduce men. Sounds like trouble to me, and it is for the 50 percent of men who fall for it.


Regardless of what women find out, Sutton says most choose to stay with their partners, because her service is really about uncovering the truth.

Would you hire her?

Hi All, I am Rebecca - thanks for the positive comments and useful feedback - it's always appreciated! To be perfectly honest the view point for our company is a little different on honey trapping than media are portraying. I offer it as a last resort, and always recommend other options first. If people want to test IF their partner would cheat, fine, a honey trap can be useful. If you already suspect your partner I don't advise this route. Put something on a plate and people generally take it, male or female. My issue with honey trapping is in the fact that someone make take this quite easy, because we do offer up some amazing women, but they make a mistake and not be a serial cheat. Not worth throwing away a perfectly good relationship for in my book. Like I said, it's a service because ultimately I'm a business woman. I try to stay impartial!!!

But I also agree with GTCB- kudos to her from a business standpoint!

I agree with stephley and Natalie. For one, I wouldn't be with someone I trusted so little that I felt the need to hire a detective, and two, if I found out a boyfriend paid someone to investigate me, I'd be flabbergasted and probably seriously consider ending the relationship.

There was a series in Colombia about this. They will catch cheaters!

Kinda stupid if you ask me; why be in a relationship with someone you can't trust? And sending some spy actress sounds absolutely crazy, to be honest.

If I found out someone paid to test my loyalty, I'd be completely disgusted and leave.

This is an interesting and unique business idea. Good on Ms. Sutton for monetizing this unusual niche service.
