Trap Lines And Blind Line Services
For Skip Tracers And Other Investigators

Trap lines have become a very effective investigative tool in skip tracing and other types of investigations such as when you need to find out where someone works.The idea behind using a trap line is that if you capture the telephone number that the party is dialing from, you have a fact that they were at this location at the time of the call. This could be their home address. If you set it up right and ask them to call at a certain time, they could be calling from their work number. Of course, once you get the number they call from, you need to turn the telephone number you captured into an address. By Ralph Thomas

This required making a u-turn at a break in the concrete and grass median that divided the three lanes of east bound and three lanes of west bound traffic. By Jack Murray, CLI, CFE
