Skip Tracing Solutions

Skip tracing is the process of locating someone who has “skipped” town for whatever reason, leaving absolutely no information regarding where they are currently residing. Our skip tracing solutions allow first- and third-party collection agencies to find and track debtors by running information through public or private search engine databases.

The possibilities to locate the data you are looking for in a complete skip trace search are far-reaching. You can search by name, address, phone, SSN, DOB, and more.

With skip tracing services available through Batch, API, or our Online Web Search Platform, Enformion delivers the best results with the following information:

  • Accurate phone numbers with dates and phone type
  • Current address
  • 40+ year historical data
