Skip tracing defines the techniques and products used to locate people. In the ARM context, debt collectors are trying to find debtors that are not reachable using contact information on hand. Most ARM companies use the services of skip tracing vendors who furnish access to massive databases of consumer contact information mined from public records, credit reports, and many other sources.
