    Fortunately these services exist to screen potential employees or renters. Times are getting tougher for everyone which means that you have to be more selective in who you involve yourself with. You can find free and paid services if you look.

      Yes, we have many bail bondsmen, collections agencies, and other industries use our tools to locate people. Getting information about friends, family, relatives, and associates is one way to start to track your bail jumpers. Our restricted access gives you the ability to search by SSN as well which can definitely help in skip tracing. You can find information on the SearchBug restricted Access here:

      Hello Jean,

      Thank you for your inquiry and comment. To obtain current address search the best option would be our Verified Current Address and Phone Search. This is an assisted search performed by licensed private investigators. The investigators assigned to these cases have decades of experience in finding hard to locate individuals.

      While most private investigators charge an hourly fee, our site ensures a flat rate for successful searches. If your subject’s whereabouts is unable to be verified by the investigator, a portion of their fee is actually refunded. It is a very low-risk solution to finding accurate and current information.

      Clicking on this Verified Locate link will take you to a page on our site where you can learn all of the details about the search including; how to order, typical results, pricing, and average turnaround time.

      If you’d like to discuss your needs before ordering or have any further questions please call our toll-free support number at 800-990-2939 between M – F from 7:00 am – 4:00 pm PST.

      Hello Corrine,

      Searchbug offers a few options for finding where your ex husband works. Depending on what and how much information you have, our assisted search tools will be the way to go.

      We offer a basic place of employment search which typically results in the last known reported employer and employment history. However, this information is not verified and not guaranteed to be current. The Verified Place of Employment search assigns a licensed private investigator with over 2 decades of experience to help you personally search for your ex-husband’s current employer. If successful, the resulting information is verbally verified and guaranteed current. Please visit the links below for more information and details including how to order, the cost, and average turnaround time.
