It can be exceedingly difficult to find someone who has in effect “skipped town”. But Traceps Online Trace allows you to find a whole list of “skips” in the shortest time possible.
Skip tracing is a colloquial term in debtor tracing that refers to when you find someone who is a “skipper”, or debtor, and who has in essence, “skipped town”.
There are different types of “skips”, namely:
Unintentional: – these are the debtors who are not trying to hide. Often they have relocated, unsure of their options if they are low on cash, or simply sometimes they are actually unaware of the debt. When you need to find someone like this, it shouldn’t be too difficult as they haven’t covered any of their tracks.
Intentional: – these are debtors who are aware of their debt and are hiding because they can’t, or don’t want to pay you. It is harder to find someone like this as often those around them know of their situation and are helping them hide and so are harder to find. Someone like this, more likely than not, probably owes money to more than one business and they don’t know what to do other than panic and hide.
Fraud: – these are not just people who cannot pay, these are individuals who never planned to pay you and so will be very hard to find. Someone like this would have had this plan the entire time, so they would also have planned how to get off your radar when it’s time to pay. This is why it is extremely hard to find someone like this and make them pay their debt.
Once your debtor has been categorised, this is how the skip tracing can get carried out:
Manual Search: – This is probably what you have tried to do yourself, in order to find someone that owes your business money. This refers to going through phonebooks, directories and also doing internet searches to find someone. All this tends to be free, but more likely than not you will get what you pay for, and you probably won’t always be able to find someone you are looking for.
Online Trace: – This is what Traceps will do if you come when you need to find someone. This is where you give us all the information you have, and we feed it into our vast database, in order to find matches. This is a highly effective form of skip tracing, and helps you to find debtors quickly.
If a debtor skips town on you, it doesn’t have to mean that they get to disappear while you deal with the debt. Online Trace is a highly successful way to find someone at any time.
