Skip Trace and Locate Investigations
What happens when a person completely goes missing? If that person is a debtor, a wanted suspect, or simply a family member who’s somehow disappeared, it’s imperative to locate his or her whereabouts as quickly as possible. That’s what skip trace and locate investigations are all about. Locating a particular person requires a specific set of skills, skills that are developed over a long career and many years of experience. National Business Investigations, Inc. is proud to offer private investigator skip tracing to anyone who needs a missing person recovered quickly.
Defining Skip Trace Investigations
Most basically, skip tracing services are about locating missing people. In a skip trace, legal private investigators will locate the current address of the person in question. A skilled investigator can locate the person remotely, and provide their exact location in real time.
Often, the person being sought out doesn’t want to be found. For example, skip traces are often conducted to locate high debtors who have skipped town to avoid payment. These individuals may have gone to great lengths to cover their tracks, so it requires a high level of investigatory skill to find them. That’s where skip tracing companies like National Business Investigations, Inc. come into play.
The skip tracing process involves careful database investigation and scouring a wide range of resources, and may call upon any of the following information:
- Phone number databases
- Credit card applications
- Credit reports
- Criminal background checks
- Job applications
- Loan applications
- Utility bills
- Public tax records
- Air travel records
Why Skip Tracing Matters
What are the legal grounds on which skip tracing is permissible? In other words, what are the scenarios in which a skip tracing service might be used? Some of the most common examples include:
- Seeking someone who owes a lofty debt (skip tracing is a method common with debt collectors)
- Locating someone who is suspected of a crime, and thought to have fled town
- Finding a family member or friend who has gone missing (at any given moment, 90,000 persons are missing on average)
- Verifying that an individual has either died or been incarcerated
Skip tracing and locate companies like National Business Investigations, Inc. can assist in tracking down individuals for any of these reasons.
Personal Investigation vs. Professional Skip Tracing
It’s worth taking some time for comparing professional investigation and Do It Yourself searches.
You may wonder whether a skip tracing service is really necessary, or if you can simply conduct the search on your own. There are certainly some instances in which a DIY investigation can yield results—but more often than not, locating a missing person requires more than just conducting some web searches. Social engineering—the art of calling on individuals who may have information on the subject—can be a necessity. Also, effective skip tracing may require you to analyze large amounts of data, something that can require a professional level of experience.
Finally, note that skip tracing can only be done within certain legal parameters; without sound legal reasoning, a skip trace investigation can fall into “invasion of privacy” territory. This is another critical reason to use a private investigator skip trace and locate service; a seasoned professional can help you stay within those legal guidelines.
