Sunderland Eye Detect Test dismisses theft rumours

A Sunderland Eye Detect Test recently dismissed theft rumours when our client Trish came to us suspecting her employee Deb guilty of stealing from her. Here is Trish’s story and how Eye Detect Test UK got her the answers she deserved.

Sunderland antique shop

Trish opened up her own Antique’s shop after her online business became extremely busy during lockdown. She was super excited for the new adventure, but still worked part time so decided she needed a shop assistant two days a week. Soon after advertising, Trish met Deb at a local antiques fair. Deb was enthusiastic and knew a lot about a variety of antiques, so Trish ask her if she would be keen to take the part time role at her shop. Deb agreed and started a week later.

Suspicions start

Deb was getting on super well with customers, and ran the shop with no problems on Trish’s days off. However, two months into opening the shop, Trish started to suspect that items were going missing. Trish decided to install fake video cameras to deter thieves from the shop. She knew there were a lot of small items, and these are the items that seemed to be going missing. Even though the fake video cameras were installed, items kept going missing and it seemed to be on the days when Trish wasn’t in the shop.

Confrontation

Trish decided to take a day off her work, and surprise visit Deb at the shop. She turned up in the morning, but to her surprise she couldn’t find Deb. She decided to grab a coffee and ring Deb to check if she was out, however on her way to the local coffee shop she saw Deb exiting a local porn brokers. Confused she decided not to say anything until she got back to the shop. She bought Deb a coffee and asked why she had shut the shop earlier. Deb said she was sorry but she had received news her brother wasn’t well and needed surgery. She said she had taken some of her jewellery for cash to put into her brother’s bank account so he could afford private surgery.

The lie detector test

Trish was unsure if Deb was telling the truth. She knew things had been going missing from the shop, and now couldn’t help feel it was too much of a coincidence that Deb was also spotted in the porn brokers. She decided to research her options online on what to do and came across Eye Detect Test UK’s blog. Trish read about a similar story and decided to book a combined eye detect and polygraph test online. Trish read how a combined test resulted in a 97% – 99% accuracy result. She decided this test was best and told Deb the next day at work about her concerns and booking the lie detector test test. Deb was shocked but understood her asking her to take the test, so she agreed.

The results

A week later both Deb and Trish showed up to our EyeDetect Newcastle office. Deb took her lie detector test and the results showed that she was telling the truth. She said she understood Trish’s concerns but that she had been telling the truth about her brother. Trish apologised profusely to Deb and said she still wanted her to work for her, as long as Deb didn’t mind. Deb said she loved working for Trish and she had no harsh feelings towards her employer. Both Trish and Deb thank Eye Detect Test UK for their professionalism and help in their case and now enjoy a happy and trusting working relationship together.
