Subject Locate Investigation: Fraudsters Taking Deliberate Steps To Evade Justice E-Newsletter Article

Living in the age of automated information, people that maliciously take advantage of others will often do whatever necessary to avoid leaving a paper trail – or on-line tracks. The deliberate omission of personal information makes it difficult to obtain current phone numbers, residential addresses, places of employment, etc. for those who need to be tracked down. In 2019, TIN received numerous Subject Locate Investigation assignments involving evasive Subjects who in the course of normal business transactions, intentionally deceived or elected not to disclose identification and/or personal information – residential, contact telephone numbers, dates of birth, real property, spousal information, vehicle registration details, etc.

In light of those situations where critical information is missing on an individual, TIN’s methodical, proprietary Subject Locate processes and out-of-the-box research/inquiry strategy led TIN to solve 92% of all locate assignments in 2019.

TIN recognizes the importance of utilizing every possible on-line source, computer database, and informational leads when conducting locate assignments. Many difficult locate assignments can be successfully concluded via computer research and/or via telephone inquiries. Often, however, fieldwork is the next essential step to uncover the most current and critical facts for our clients.

Today, many modern era Investigators rely exclusively on social media, computer databases, and on-line information sources to conduct a “full and comprehensive” investigation. In fact, many Investigators remain hesitant to simply pick up the phone or use a “boots on the ground” approach to solving difficult locate assignments. In those particular cases, TIN’s willingness to pick up the phone, knock on doors, and make field inquiries is the catalyst in solving difficult Subject locate assignments.

Year in and year out, our agency has demonstrated that no Subject Locate Investigation is too difficult. TIN is committed to going the extra mile whenever necessary in order to bring closure to a client’s assignment. Our friends and clients tell us that the effort is always appreciated and worth it.

Leave no doubt!
