What is Skip Tracing?

Skip tracing pertains to the process of locating a person’s whereabouts for a variety of purposes. The person who performs this task is commonly referred to as a skip tracer. In order to skip trace the whereabouts of an individual, our skip tracer first obtains as much information as possible about the person in question. We commonly ask for five basic types of personal identifiers such as the following:

  1. Full name;
  2. Social security number;
  3. Birth date;
  4. Last known address; and/or
  5. Driver’s license number.

Once we obtain this information, our skip tracer typically looks for more information about the individual from the following sources:

  1. Department of Motor Vehicles
  2. Tax ID
  3. Employment History
  4. Criminal History
  5. Civil History
  6. Credit Reports
  7. Entity Searches
  8. Corporation Searches
  9. Basic Asset Liability Searches
  10. Online Databanks

Once we collect the data, we analyze, reduce, and verify the information to confirm the person’s identity. Note, as mentioned above, it is not uncommon for people to delete information that can be traced directly to them; however, there is always a trail of facts that can be followed to locate an individual.
