Skip tracing for debt collection


Skip tracing is often used to locate an individual who owes money, commonly referred to as a debtor. For an individual to have a credit check conducted on another individual, the Ontario Consumer Reporting Act legislates that lawful evidence must exist proving a debt is owed, such as a judgment, an order for support, a court order for costs, or a loan agreement.
