Skip Tracing

Skip Tracing has become a little easier with modern technology.  Today the many investigative databases available to law firms and private investigators make the task somewhat easy.

No longer does a private investigator need to canvas neighborhoods. Contacting friends or relatives of the subject is a thing of the past. The days of the old fashioned gumshoe are history.

Databases for licensed investigators and attorneys…

The following databases are accurate and comprehensive. However you do need to be a licensed private investigator or attorney to gain access.

TLO – This database is part of TransUnion and offers a wide array of investigative information. A monthly minimum is required and on site inspection of your office is required.

Tracers – Tracers offers solutions for legal professionals at a very reasonable rate. A monthly minimum is required but no on site inspection is required.

idiCORE – A very thorough investigative database for legal professionals. I have not had a chance to try this database yet, but they do offer a free trial to test their services.

Databases for others…

Batch Skip Tracing – This database is does batch skip tracing at an extremely reasonable rate of $.20 each… That’s right 20 cents each! However there is a 50 subject order minimum. I have read some positive reviews for this company. I do receive a small affiliate commission if you sign up with them.

What if a database does not find my subject?

Sometimes the task of locating a skip is not as easy as punching in a name or social security number into a database.  Many times not enough information is available on the subject.
