American Information Specialists – The Skip Trace Pros


Frequently Asked Questions About Skip Tracing


Is my Search Confidential?

Absolutely. All of our search specialists are required to sign a confidentiality agreement. Rest assured – your identity is safe with us. Your information is discussed only with you. Your subject will never know that you’re searching for them.


Can I Actually Speak with You?

Of course, and we strongly encourage this. Call us at 619-865-5421 – pretty much any time with any questions you may have. Try doing that with an “Online Database Provider.” We take pride in our accessibility. The more information you can give us the better the results, and sometimes it takes a phone call.


How Much Will the Search REALLY Cost Me?

Most searches are $55 – $95. It kind of depends on what you’re looking for as well as the information you provide us with to begin the search. There are no hidden costs, fees, or taxes. No contracts – no hassles. No locate? No charge.


Why are Others Offering Searches for $49 or $7.95?

Because their information is old. I suppose there may be some value if you’re simply doing a batch search to spam people – but that’s not us. I wrote an informative article on exactly how skip tracing databases work. It will really enlighten you, so check it out.


What Do You Include in Your Reports?

A lot, actually. Basically, a new, verified address. Probable phones and email addresses. Business addresses, PO Boxes, and past addresses if relevant. Close relatives and associates if needed. We also update our reports at no extra cost – in a reasonable time-frame, of course. Again, we overdeliver.


Why Should I Choose American Information Specialists?

Our success rate is off the charts. Why? Because we know what we’re doing. We understand that your search is important to YOU. We’ve been doing this for quite some time now. We’ll take care of you.


I Need Information Right Away. Can You Help?

This is where we excel. We have had Attorney’s call us from the court house, and provided them information within minutes. We ask that you give us up to 24 hours – we want to get things right. We know how important ACCURATE information is to you.


Do You Have a Guarantee?

You bet we do! If we cannot provide you with new, verified information on your subject – there is no charge. In fact, we’ll give you the information that we did find, or cannot be 100% sure of – at no charge. We’ll then set up some “alerts” to track your subject. We overdeliver.


I Have an Unusual Request. Can You Help?

We sure can. Don’t be shy – you might be surprised by some of the search requests we receive. Some are a bit off-the-wall, but we usually come up with a solution. If we are unable to help, we can certainly point you in the right direction. Either way, we’ll help solve your dilemma. I should write a book some day.


Is There Any Type of Search You Won't Do?

Yep. Plenty of them. We’re professionals, so spammers and scammers need not apply. We do not perform “batch” searches, but do offer nice discounts for multiple search requests. Celebrities, minors, and high-ranking officials are off limits. For a more extensive list, check out Searches We Won’t Do.
