Episode Description

Skiptracers have a key role in the health of the economy. Those who grant credit cannot operate unless paid, and when unable to collect a debt, companies sell severely past-due accounts to debt buyers or collection agencies. Others, like private investigators, process servers, repossessors and fugitive recovery agents also need to locate people. These people can range from those not attempting to hide to those who skip intentionally to avoid a debt to the hardcore fraudsters who never intend to pay. Private Investigator Michael “Mike” Dores has spent over 30 years tracking people and he is skilled in both the techniques and the laws surrounding the process. Tune in to hear expert skiptracer Mike Dores talk about how skiptracing has changed during his career and provide suggestions, tips and techniques to trace the skip.
