Skip tracing and location services in Florida require creative techniques and include using a wide range of proprietary database services, accessing court records, interviewing people and digging up records from law enforcements, government agencies and other information based locations. Just about all time, skip tracing and location services are handled covertly and are undetected by the person whom we are seeking to find.
What we do when skip tracing people believed to be located in Florida?
Services directed to a person situated within Florida are performed by identifying and collecting as much information as possible about the person who is the subject of the location services. The Private Investigator handling the skip trace service creates a file and accumulates as much information as possible the File is closely monitored and assessed so as to create a road map to where the person is most likely to be. Most of the time the subject's past addresses and the most recently known address can be found it the specially created file. However, because most skip trace file contains a wide range of data and information only a trained and experienced Private Process Server and or Private Investigator will be able to discern relevant and useful data to use to find someone.

Strange Calls from people claiming to be Nationwide Locators
Throughout the years we have received dozens of calls from people in Florida who apparently were contacted by a company identifying themselves and “Nationwide Locators.” We have been told these creeps call, make threatening statements and leave a telephone number that is either disconnected or goes to a voice mailbox. We are NOT the “Nationwide Locators” company and have no affiliation to or knowledge of who these people are. We are Nationwide Process Servers and offer location services but only under the business name “A. C. E., Inc. In addition, we NEVER make outgoing calls to debtor, witnesses and or defendants. So if you think we are the company who called you, please dont, we are not those idiots and are currently working on finding them!
Our suggestion to anyone who is victim of one or more calls from Nationwide Locators is to ignore them. In the alternative, if you caller i.d. and note the telephone number you may want to consider filing a complaint. Overall, if the company calling you is a debt collector, they are in violation of the law whereby they must properly identify themselves by name, personal and business, and provide you with a name and address as well. If the company calling you is a Process Service claiming they have a summons to serve or deliver to you, ask them for the case number and who the Plaintiff is. Always ask the cause of action or the reason for the lawsuit or if they allege you owe money, obtain the exact amount they claim you owe. ALWAYS ask for something in writing and request they send you a formal letter of introduction and the specific details of the matter they allege you are party to or responsible for.
