Skip tracing for many of us is a rush. Skip tracing is like solving a big puzzle. It doesn’t matter where in the world, for us the world is small and countries are just little pieces to the puzzle. Sometimes they were obstacles in the way depending on the local laws, like Mexico. Speaking of Mexico, not to get off subject, but it is just so wacky to me how some of these countries we help so much get away with the abuse for us as they do. Pakistan is another, I could go on all day long but I ‘ll get back on subject.
I could go into almost any country with prior notice of what the reason was and most countries are more then willing to assist in anyway they can. Of coarse on occasion you run into the (above) typical corruption and USA hating deals but whatever. You learn or figure out how to work around these obstacles because really that’s all they are and we cannot let them get into our way. We have a manhunt that must get solved and we will pursue this manhunt with complete and relentless passion to stay the very best at what we do.
We have a reputation to maintain, we have to build our recommendation letter pile. We have money to be made and there is no way a case as small as the world will stop us in our manhunt.
This skip tracing becomes our drug, it flows through our veins and each case is like it’s the last case we will ever do. We are not doing ordinary skip tracing we are the clean up crew and get it done. We put ourselves in his shoes, we look back to the day of signing and move forward from there, all previous mediocre investigation work is non existent. We start fresh from A and put each piece together as it falls. We have a certain level of confidence that sets us apart. Does it matter to me that 3 other skip tracers have previously worked this case? Hell no, not even for a minute.
Our wives wonder why we wake up sporadically in the middle of the night during a case that sits in our mind. They don’t understand the power of a manhunt. We chase him down from state to state or from one country to another. We learn his habits, we learn those who are close to him. We gain traction and get closer to solving our manhunt.
Skip tracing is not for everyone, especially a really good skip tracer. It may be able to be learned, but personally I think allot of it is natural. As you embark on your first skip trace or manhunt, you will see how it sits with you. Skip trace takes allot of patience and intelligence, typically more intelligence then who you are seeking.
