Do you have a few “lost” borrowers that you would love to find?

It is well-known that there are two types of skips: those that can’t be found and those that don’t want to be found. Do you know the difference? What do you do? How much time do you spend attempting to locate past due borrowers? Sometimes all you need is that little extra tidbit or guidance. Well, here it is!
  • Implement a better method of skip tracing
  • Maximize in-house information gathering
  • Avoid privacy issues and landmines
  • Utilize friends, family, and ex-spouses
  • Discover hidden internet resources
  • Appreciate private detectives, repo ninjas, and other secrets
  • Uncover subscription service gems


Things are beginning to cool off in the economy and heat up in collections. Now is the time to get in touch with many of your borrowers again. The good news is, you will have a fresh start at establishing a positive relationship. The bad news? You won’t be able to find many of them. Between address changes, job changes, phone service changes, and other life shifts, prior communication methods may no longer work.

What if there was a way to reduce the time and frustration of skip tracing and increase the accuracy of your efforts? This interactive webinar will offer innovative guidance and resources to help you uncover more lost borrowers and open up more recovery opportunities. From maximizing in-house efforts to using the latest technology to uncovering hidden location assets and leveraging third-party resources, join financial institution attorney and collections veteran David Reed as he examines the latest tips, tricks, and landmines in skip tracing.


This informative session is designed for collections managers, collections staff, BSA and security staff, fraud investigators, skip tracers, collateral specialists, asset recovery specialists, and anyone interested in honing their skip tracing skills.
