Today’s high levels of debts status means it’s essential that you are able to make contact with your customers as soon as you realise there is a problem. Arrange payment plans and ensure that the debt is dealt with, but there are times when this just does not happen. Sometimes people try to disappear.
People disappear for numerous reasons, including;
Unintentional, where a person moves and forgets to let the creditors know of their new address
Relief seeking, where debtors fail to give creditors their new address for some time or they HAVE NEVER moved but merely send back letters and demands stating that they have “gone away”
Criminality, where people move deliberately because they had false accounts and services knowing they were never going to pay for them.
Every year hundreds of thousands of people move home. Some do so for purely legitimate reasons but there are a small minority who move in order to deliberately evade creditors and try to get away without paying their bills, this causes increased hardship on companies who are trying to keep afloat in this harsh economic environment, when debtors “skip” and they do not leave a forwarding address some creditors have to wipe of accounts, in some instances this could amount to millions being wiped as bad debt merely because the creditor is unable to make contact.
For whatever reason people disappear or wherever they disappear to, I conduct skip traces, debtor tracing and adoption tracing throughout Ireland and internationally with the help of my international partners.
I provide you with as much information as I am privy to, including;
The correct name, address and telephone number of the debtor.Name of the debtor’s spouse.
Debtor’s occupation or last known occupation.
Names of relatives, friends and trade references “if there are any”.
Details of any disputes over the debt, either with you or other companies.
Any information about the filings of a bankruptcy petition or the possibility that the debtor may file one.
Mobile phone and/or email address
Nicknames or “aliases”.
I can help you to locate accurate and up-to-date forwarding address, where an individual or company has left their previous address without letting you know. I can help you with information on how to obtain relief once the debtor is traced. i.e. Civil litigation for the recovery of both personal and commercial debt.
This is achieved by instigating a civil case in either the District Court, if the amount of relief sought is under €15,000, this is done by a civil summons which our qualified and experienced summons servers can serve on your behalf, Cases with the value between €15,000 and €75,000 are dealt with in the Circuit Court and where the amount of relief sought is higher than €75,000 then the case needs to be instigated in the High Court.
A lost love, relative, witness or defendant in a legal case, former classmate, runaway, biological parent/child, etc. Depending upon a number of factors (e.g., length of time the person has been missing, how intent he/she is on staying missing), the task can be quite challenging, or remarkably simple if one has the appropriate computer databases, contacts, and experience.
Missing persons can go to great lengths not to be found therefore it is vital to give as much information to the investigation from the outset, i.e tattoos, nicknames, accent or even eye colour, these are things that people rarely change.
