Skip Trace Investigation

A Skip Trace Investigation is an investigative search for an individual who has failed to pay a civil judgment award and has skipped out on his obligation to pay the plaintiff/creditor. When conducting these investigations for our clients we generally find that the individuals have a pattern or history of outstanding judgments. These individuals move about taking temporary residences for short periods of time and also are found to take temporary on the books employment or work off the books entirely. They have this lifestyle so that they are hard to find and not easily traced.

Skip trace is a term used to describe an investigative process that is used by private investigator’s, skip tracers, debt collectors, bail bondsman, detectives and journalists to locate a person’s whereabouts. The term comes from the word skip referring to the person who has “skipped town” and trace or find the person who has relocated or skipped to a new location. So the investigators job is to track the person from their previous location to a new location.

Most often these people are on the run trying to avoid debt collectors, court ordered judgments or are “deadbeat dads”. So the job can be difficult at times because these people don’t want to be found. They tend to move around frequently and try to work at jobs that pay off the book wages. Skip tracing a subject is done by collecting as much informational data about the person as possible. Then the investigator has to sift through the data, analyze it and verify it. The investigator conducts a comprehensive background investigation collecting the information from a number of sources such as, phone number databases, credit reports, loan applications, credit card application, debt collector databases, job applications, criminal background checks, utility bills, social security, disability, and public tax information. Sometimes it is just visiting old friends and neighbors that can lead an investigator in the right direction. Then it comes down to good old fashion detective work and long hours of surveillance.

WRM Security Services Inc. has the experience to located these individuals, their property and places of employment. WRM Security Services Inc. recently completed an investigation for a prominent local businessman from Bohemia, New York 11716. His debtor was located residing in Patchogue, New York 11772 and was found to be employed by the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, New York in the Mastic Beach, New York 11951 area.
