People get lost or disappear for a variety of reasons. Mental illness, homelessness and even when they have been in debt and cannot pay or do not want to repay they choose to disappear. Locating such people can be very frustrating and costly because it involves investigations and following tracks that such people might have left behind. Skip-tracing is a technique for finding or locating hard-to locate persons. With the technology advancing and the use of internet, there are now more sophisticated strategies of skip-tracing. Some people still use the same techniques, but skip tracing requires the use of different methods. The main difference between the two methods of locating people is that skip-tracers look for targets that have very little current information on them. Their locating methods involve gathering details from sources that may likely want to lie about the target’s location or whereabouts such as family, colleagues or even workmates.
However, skip-tracers have the ability to decipher the truth in any information they collect. All data that is collected is analyzed and evaluated with any possible leads checked and persons questioned, to try and gather more details on the target. Other sources of information that skip-tracers view are credit reports, previous contact numbers, the target’s employment status or history, criminal background, social security details and even social media. All of these sources might have information that can help the skip-tracers locate the target faster. The payment for skip-tracing is done in either of the following ways: paying a single flat rate where the target is supposed to be located within 1-20 days. The flat fee is paid on a successful search while no fee or reduced fee if the search is not successful.
Another way to pay is when the client dictates how much they are willing to pay hourly and the search is commenced until the resources run out. Finally, the last way people can pay for skip-tracing is when the cost and time is not the issue. In the last scenario, which is common with big businesses, they ask skip-tracers to locate the culprit no matter the cost. The search ends when all possible avenues have been exhausted or when the target is located.
