Skip Tracing Sniffs Out Debtors
Barb Owens has a pithy description of people who skip out on loans: "They won't do the things most people do to keep in touch or be found." That means moving frequently, not publishing their phone numbers, and leaving no forwarding addresses. "This is the pattern of people, who, unlike those who lose jobs or get divorced and experience a temporary financial setback, have no intention of paying."

Tracing Former Military Personnel In The U.S.
It is difficult to trace someone in the United States when their whereabouts are completely unknown, as there are no central records of names and addresses available to the public. For those trying to locate former colleagues, friends or relations the following information may be of assistance. When writing to an agency or organization listed below, you should provide as much information as possible about the person you seek. At least the full name, date and place of birth should be given. For military personnel, the rank, serial number and branch of service should also be specified.

Email Trace and Email Tracking How To
Email tracing can be useful to tracking down spammers, but you must be careful since spammers can fake the host names of the mail servers they send their unwanted email through. To begin, turn on the option to view all headers in your email client. You should see a bunch of fields, a majority of which may start with "Received: ". These "Received" headers form something of an electronic trail through the Internet, showing the path the email took through the Internet. The top header is the server nearest you and the bottom header indicates where the mail was originally sent. But beware...some of these headers may be forged.
