Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should I choose Skip-Trace Pros?

A: We have a 98% success rate. And, while there are other qualified search companies, most only offer you lists of possible names that YOU have to call. That’s not us. We provide you with the most information possible, including verified address and probable phone numbers and email addresses. Our researchers are simply the best.

Q: Is my search information confidential?

A: Absolutely. Our search specialists are required to sign a confidentiality agreement. All of your information is sealed and private. Your information is discussed with no one but you. Your Subject will never know that we’re searching for him or her.

Q: Why are other people offering locates for $29 to $49, and even $7.95?

A: Please feel free to use these companies first, and when you get frustrated with the results – call us. Actually, online “People Finder” websites and databases are our best advertisement. Many of our clients finally come to us after being disappointed with the “general” results that they get. We know what it takes to be thorough and accurate. We do not simply plug in a name in a public records file, and then bill you. Nor do we use the so-called “Detective” software. We’ve been in this business for over 20 years and have access to “The Really Good Stuff,” and have developed many contacts and “sources” around the country. Our searches are in real time, by real people. Our work is detailed and comprehensive. We provide an excellent service at an excellent price.

Q: Can I actually speak to a search specialist?

A: Certainly! Simply call Matt at 619-865-5421 for your free and confidential consultation with one of our search specialists. Or fill out our Search Inquiry Form. Or simply shoot us an email to: matt [at] and let us know what we can do to help you.

Q: I need information right away. How long does it take to get results?

A: Usually within 24 hours. We know that this information is important to you and strive to provide you with timely, ACCURATE information. If we run into difficulties, we’ll always provide you with a new time frame. If it’s vitally important that you need the information within hours – the best thing to do is call Matt right away at 619-865-5421.

Q: I need some rather confidential information on a Subject. What exactly are the types of searches you perform?

A: Good question. We find people – accurate and verified addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses. And Background Reports including assets, businesses, criminal history, etc. We also understand that some people simply do not wish to be found and do whatever they can to avoid people like us (and you). Therefore, depending on your case, we’ll also find their close relatives (names, addresses, and phones), and probable friends and roommates. Need something really off-the-wall? Just let us know what it is – we can probably get you results.

Q: How much will the search REALLY cost me?

A: All skip traces (finding people) are $68.00 – $95.00 per Subject. No more. Your cost will depend on the type of information that you provide us to begin the search. SSN’s and DOB’s are very helpful. There is NEVER a charge if we cannot provide you with new, accurate information. If your Subject is married, we’ll usually skip trace both of them for just the singular cost. Background/Asset Reports are $95.00 – $145.00. Visit our Background Checks page for more details as it really depends on exactly what you’re looking for.

Q: Just who are you Guys?

A: Go ahead and click on our “About Us” page.  You might be surprised to find that we’re real people with real names and phone numbers – and actually provide that information on our website.

Q: Do you have a guarantee?

A: Of course.  Here’s how we roll: You contact us with a request for whatever type of search you’re looking for. We immediately acknowledge receipt of the request and then perform the search. Once the search is completed, we shoot an email back to you letting you know – and that we’ll send you an invoice through PayPal right away.  Pay the invoice and we send you the information.  It’s that simple. We have many long-term clients, mostly Attorney’s, who we simply bill through our QuickBooks. If there’s anything wrong with the search – we’ll either re-do it right away, or issue you an IMMEDIATE refund through PayPal. That’s very rare, as we really are that good.

Search Inquiry Form


It’s a very simple process. Once you fill out and submit the form, it immediately gets sent to us.  We’ll acknowledge receipt and get down to business.  If we have any questions, or need some additional information, we’ll contact you by email.
