News from the LinkedIn Credit and Collections Group

Good Morning,

We are up to 24,645 members. We’ve grown by over 10,000 since January 1, 2012. Absolutely awesome.

Recently there has been some controversy over what constitutes a valid skip locate and a valid Place of Employment.
Having been a diehard skiptracer for the last 33 years and functioned in various capacities within the collection field I feel that at this point I would educate the masses.

A new locate consists of a new point of contact for the subject (debtor). It may be a new address, phone number (res or cell) or a new job. When I provide that service it is the whole gammit. All information will be provided including jail or death. That is what a skiptrace is.

A Place of Employment locate is exactly what it is said, however it is verified. When it is said to be verified it is manually worked and someone has spoken with the subject, or the HR department. Using LinkedIn or Facebook is not verification as sometimes people do not update their profiles.

All the databases are tools. We still must make the phone calls to VERIFY THE INFORMATION.

Right now MicroBilt is offering The following:

VERIFIED POE $35.00 and this is manually done and is a process that I am personally involved in.

MicroBilt’s SPOT POE is the easiest way to improve your collections by drastically increasing the speed and success of skip tracing. Find place of employment with the only POE database that refreshes, satisfies, and hits the SPOT. And for the month of December, 2012, new clients can receive the industry’s latest POE data search. Mention this ad and you will receive the search at a 25% discount. As always, there are no minimum orders!

Send your contact information to or call 770-218-4400ext 4705.

There are times that we will need to send an email to you individually instead of collectively. Please go to and provide us with your contact information.

Have you taken out your page on the Credit and Collections Vendor Recommendations site yet? Remember until the end of the year the price is still only $50.00 for a full year. This is additional exposure and we are still averaging over 1000 hits per week.

Please check out The Compliance Auditors. They have already set up a series of appointments on behalf of debt buyers looking to audit their files that are being worked by collection agencies.
