Skip Trace Search

Skip Trace Search
Serves investigative professionals – period.  We cater exclusively to private investigators, process servers, bail bondsmen, judgment recovery and repossession specialists.

Skip Trace provides access to only the highest quality data and the most current information available – that's why investigators have come to rely on us for fast and accurate information.

Skip Trace search customers can search billions of records not always available in public databases.  Access to the search database is federally regulated to only people with legally permissible purposes.  When that criteria is met—then, and only then—does search help our elite clientele locate missing persons, verify identity, comply with legislation, prevent or detect fraud, determine institutional risk control, aid law enforcement, and contribute to security initiatives.

Skip Tracing (also skip tracing) is a colloquial term used to describe the process of locating a person's whereabouts for any number of purposes. A skiptracer is someone who performs this task, which may be the person's primary occupation. The term "skip" refers to the person being searched for, and is derived from the idiomatic expression "to skip town", meaning to depart (perhaps in a rush), leaving minimal clues behind to "trace" the "skip" to a new location.

Skip Tracing is done by collecting as much information as possible about the subject. The information is then analyzed, reduced, and verified. Obtaining new and correct points of contact is key. Sometimes the subject's current whereabouts are in the data, but are obfuscated by the sheer amount of information or disinformation. More often the data will be used to identify third parties that might be able to assist the process. This is where the job becomes more than mere research since one must often employ methods of social engineering, which involves calling or visiting former neighbors, employers or other known contacts to ask about the subject, sometimes under false or misleading pretenses.

Records that "skip Tracers" use may include phone number databases, credit reports (including information provided on a loan application, credit card application, and in other debt collector databases), job application information, criminal background checks, utility bills (electricity, gas, water, sewage, phone, Internet, and cable), social security, disability, and public tax information. While some of these records may be publicly available, some cannot be accessed without an appropriate search warrant, which is generally only available to law enforcement.

Even when no specific information is returned, public databases exist that cross-reference skip tracing information with others the "skip" may have lived with within the recent past. For instance, if previous records show a "skip" lived in the same house as a third party, the third party may also be "skip traced" in an effort to locate the "skip". Also, see "Back Tracing"
