Skip and Collect

You Can Only Collect From Those Whom You Can Contact

One of the challenges that many companies face when it comes to payment / debt collection is when they have outstanding accounts that are difficult – if not impossible – to track down. It is not just tedious but consumes a lot of time – time that could be spent in doing core business obligations. Thankfully, there is a viable solution to address the issue: skip-tracing, the process of tracking down consumers whose contact information is no longer accurate / updated.

In our increasingly mobile, international society, skip tracing has become more and more important to a successful collection effort. With FAMS’ Skip and Collect service, we can help you bring those individuals with outstanding debts back into the scene. We have access to the best locate databases available to retrieve pertinent information, including the following:

  • Phone number databases

  • Credit reports

  • Credit card applications

  • Job applications

  • Criminal background checks

  • Loan applications

  • Utility bills

  • Public tax information

  • Public records databases

  • Courthouse records

  • Department store loyalty cards

  • Air travel records

  • Driver’s license/vehicle registration departments

Our experienced collectors are skilled at using those tools to find both people and assets.

Our specialized, criteria-based skip trace waterfall process optimizes new telephone and address information on a daily basis so our team of collectors can contact your accounts expeditiously.

  • When FAMS was the only agency to hit their Student Loan goal for the month of September, I received an appreciative e-mail from Jerry Hogan.  It was a great feeling to know the owner of the company took the time to send an email telling us we did a good job.
