Skip tracing is an investigative process of locating a person's whereabouts. A skip tracer at A.C.E. is a state licensed Private Investigator who has knowledge, experience, contacts and skills finding people in North Carolina or anywhere in the nation. The term "skip" refers to the person being searched for, and is an industry term that was derived from people who "skipped town" to avoid legal issues. Meaning whoever left town did so without a forwarding address and no apparent information left behind to "trace" the "skip" to a new address.
A.C.E. skip tracing services are usually retained by attorney's, adoption agencies, banks, mortgage companies, investors, private investigators, asset managers, leasing companies or by anyone who needs to locate a someone believed to residing or working in North Carolina and whose contact information is not immediately known. Records that our "skip tracers" use may include phone number databases, social security numbers, date of birth, credit header reports and also includes information provided on a loan application, credit card application, cell phone records and utility records, job application information, criminal background records, court records, arrest records, utility bills, electricity, gas, water, sewage, phone, internet, and cable bills. We also can speak with neighbors, former spouse(s), friends, business associates, real estate records, and public tax information.
Skip tracing someone in North Carolina is performed by A.C.E. investigators by collecting as much information as possible about the subject. We use proprietary database systems only available to licensed Private Investigators to find and interview neighbors, former landlords, connect with the post office to file FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) applications, research public and private records, search the internet and dig deep into as much historical information as we can find. Investigative information found by A.C.E. investigators is diligently evaluated and analyzed. A majority of the time we find the subject within the results, but many times we don't. A specialized skip tracing service is not an exact science and therefore must be considered as due diligence or a diligent search, at best, and is not guaranteed to locate your subject in North Carolina or anywhere else. Though we are quite successful we cannot guarantee this service. For the past twenty years we have located over 700 people and boast a 93% success rate.
