Skip tracing can easily straddle the line between an acceptable debt collection practice and one that does not comply with the 1977 Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. By following some key best practices, collectors can ensure that their activities will not open themselves or their employer to litigation based on the FDCPA or any other industry rules and regulations passed by Congress over the course of the past half-century. This is best done by analyzing each form of skip tracing and each point of contact, looking into its legal uses and best practices.
