In a 29 June 2023 mass emailing addressed to “All CVSA Examiners,” NITV Federal Services, which markets a putative “lie detector” called the Computer Voice Stress Analyzer (CVSA), offered $2,000 for any success stories that it accepts for publication on its website. The full text of the email, which was sent out under the title, “Your Cases Solved With the CVSA are Worth $$$$: CVSA Examiners,” is reproduced below:
To: All CVSA Examiners
NITV Federal Services is soliciting new unique ‘Real Cases Solved’ to showcase on our Website to illustrate the tremendous value of the CVSA as an Investigative tool. We are offering $2,000.00 for any case submitted that NFS accepts to publish on our Website or to use as an example in our marketing. You may submit a synopsis of the case, or simply submit the case and we will write the synopsis and send it back for your approval.
For the Real Cases Solved submission, please go to our Website and review some of the cases listed, such as the case at the Darke Co. Sheriff’s Dept. where the analysis of an old tape-recorded interview was used to identify a suspect and solve the case, the case at the West Palm Beach Dept., or the numerous cases where the subject passed the polygraph (or failed) and the CVSA successfully solved the case.
Please send your case for the Real Cases Solved submission to Lourdes@cvsa1.com. To send a case for consideration to be used in our training program, you may send it electronically to the above email address or by regular mail to:
