What is Skip Tracing, (aka skiptrace), and how do you get it? The term "skip" (as a noun) refers to a person being searched for. It's derived from the 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 tactics are often conducted by a skip tracer, process server, debt collector, bail bondsman or bail agency enforcer (aka bounty hunter), witness location specialists, repossession agent, private investigator, lawyer, police detective, journalist, or by any person attempting to locate a subject whose contact information is not immediately known.
Professional Skip Tracing
So, how do professionals go about a skiptrace? First, they need to get access to special private data that is often regulated by Federal or State guidelines and requires a permissible purpose to access.
Since Searchbug partners with several such data providers and pays hefty monthly fees to access this data, we are able to utilize economies of scale and offer our customers access to this same specialized data without any setup fees, monthly fees, or monthly minimums.
High quality data without a monthly fee so you get the best information and only pay for what you use.
