What is Skip Tracing?
Skip tracing also known as debtor tracing is the process of locating absconded debtors who have left the last known address without providing a forwarding location.
Around 30% of all undeliverable post is from people moving home to a new address without notifying their suppliers of the changes.
In many cases this is done without intent and just not notified all the relevant and interested parties. However, there is still a number of people who do this so as not to be found and avoid paying any outstanding debts and bills.
It is important that innocent people are found quickly to avoid having detrimental information recorded against them and damaging their credit score.
However, it is just as important to locate the intentional absconded debtors in order to make them accountable for the debts they have left behind.
