Webinar: Finding Lost Borrowers: The New World of Skip Tracing
Monday, December 06, 2021, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Do you have a few “lost” borrowers that you would love to find? With payment moratoriums ending and the economy in flux, delinquent accounts are back on the radar. What do you do? Sometimes all you need is that little extra tidbit or guidance – like the kind you will get from this dynamic, expert speaker!


  • Create a better method of skip tracing
  • Maximize in-house information gathering
  • Identify privacy issues and landmines
  • Deal with and contact friends, family, and ex-spouses
  • Access hidden internet resources
  • Handle and discuss private detectives, repo ninjas, and other dark secrets
  • Use subscription service gems


Things are beginning to heat up again in the financial industry and it’s time to get in touch with past-due borrowers again. The good news is that this is an opportunity for a fresh start at establishing a positive relationship. The bad news? You may not be able to find many of them. Between address changes, job changes, phone service changes, and other life shifts, your prior communication methods may not work.

It is well-known within collections 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? How much time do you spend trying to locate past-due borrowers? What if there was a way to reduce the time and frustration of skip tracing and increase the accuracy of your efforts? This timely webinar is just the ticket! It will offer innovative guidance and resources to help uncover lost borrowers and open up more recovery opportunities. It will address maximizing in-house efforts, using the latest technology, uncovering hidden location assets, and leveraging third-party resources. Join presenter David Reed (attorney, Certified Fraud Examiner, and collections veteran) as he examines the latest tips, tricks, and landmines in skip tracing.


This insightful webinar will benefit collections managers, collections staff, BSA and security staff, skip tracers, collateral specialists, asset recovery specialists, and anyone wanting to increase their skip-tracing skills.
