I have the SSN for someone can you find them?

I have the SSN for someone can you find them?

Q. I have the SSN for someone can you find them?

A. This is a question we get all the time. We usually request a little more information because the Private investigators that provide their services to Bestpeoplesearch.com have several different searches that would answer this question. We will discuss some of the differences below.

 

  • A Basic People Search By name, address or SSN:
    A good basic and inexpensive search and is conducted manually (unlike our automated instant people search that lets you connect to several proprietary database systems and search using name).

When the investigator conducts this search your report includes records from up to six (6) different sources compiled into one easy to read report. It includes any names & any aliases found associated to your subject’s SSN.

It also includes the most currently reported address first, then all associated address history (included all previous addresses found, some going back as far as 1980’s).

Why this search:
I recommend this search if you are looking for an old friend or researching family history (if you only have a name this search works well too). This search is a great “jumping off” place to see what information is out there and associated with the name and/or SSN you have.

Unfortunately, the last reported address found is not always going to be the current residence of your subject. However, if you are not sure what state someone lives in or has been in for the last 10 – 20 years, or if you think they are not the kind of person to move around a lot, this would be the most cost effective search for your purposes and includes a lot of info.

This search can often lead to more successful searches on your own given the amount of information it will reveal about your subject if you don’t have much to start with.

Often times, you can send mail to the addresses provided and request forwarding information from the post office or write a note on the outside of the envelope for current residents to open and ask if they know of your subject’s whereabouts and leave your address or phone number where they can reach you to help in your pursuit.

  • Find Phone Number & Address:
    A better intermediate level search.
    This search is considered the next best search after a basic search above, as it costs a bit more due to the amount of time, effort and additional expense the investigators have to go through.This search has two options:
    a. Search with your subject’s SSN. I recommend this for people in a hurry to locate someone such as if there was a death in the family and you can’t find accurate or current information elsewhere about relatives and you need to contact them to make them aware of arrangements. Also, if you have used the basic search and the address was not current, this search is the logical next step. This search is often used by children looking for biological parents, family members & friends looking to reconnect. We’ve even had several gentlemen use it to find their significant others father to request her hand in marriage.
    b. Search without your subject’s SSN is designed so that your assigned investigator will locate an SSN if one has not been provided. With either search your assigned investigator will check to see if there are any public utilities located in your subjects name. This is not the same as the guaranteed address search that is verified, however, generally speaking if someone has electricity or other utilities in their name at a specific address they more than likely live there, are the landlord of the address, or someone residing at the address knows the person paying the bills. This search does take longer than the basic search (about 7 business days to complete).
  • Guaranteed Current Address Search:
    Our Best People Search. This search is unlike any search on the Internet today. This is our most comprehensive search and our competitors know it. Often copied never duplicated. This search provides verbal verification by your assigned investigator that your subject lives at the address given in your final report. This search takes 18-22 business days to complete due the comprehensive nature of this search and the verification process. Once an address is located for your subject it is then personally verified by your assigned private investigator. It is an intensive and extensive search. This search is most frequently used by Process Servers, attorneys, and individuals seeking to locate an address for other legal purposes where a current address is a must.

    Because it is such an intensive search and it does take longer to complete, the results are guaranteed correct on the date of the report.

    This is the most costly of the people search searches due to the work required by your assigned investigator. The investigators have assisted many people in reuniting with family & friends as well as to serve individuals with legal paperwork, locating debtors to collect on judgments and for many other matters. We have a lot of repeat law firms that rely on this search for their everyday needs.

 

We hope this blog helps you understand some of the different ways to locate someone using a name or Social Security Number. Best People Search has a search for every situation & budget. Please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you’re frustrated by all the online scams and phony “people search consumer-review sites” and have wasted money with other sites that don’t even post a customer service phone number or contact address we welcome you t

I’m trying to find my mother

I'm trying to find my mother

I often recieve very similar questions from customers and find myself answering them in very much the same way. I will start to post them in my blog in hopes of helping many more people.

Quesiton was:
I am trying to find my mother whom I haven’t had contact with in almost 10 years. I’ve heard she has been married a couple of times since then. The only information I have is her ss#, birthdate, and maiden name. If you are able to help me with this matter I would very grateful.

My Answer:
You have a few options for locating someone with a social security number.

This search lets you conduct a search from the subject’s Social Security Number. Your investigator will research the Social Security Number provided and compile a report to include Last report & Previous address history (up to 15 years), any non-cell phone numbers (current or past if found), any possible aliases as well as a death records search.

This search lets you conduct a search using the person’s Social Security Number to locate an address where the individual has active utilities. This is useful if the person is not trying to “skip” out on a debt. If you’re looking for a friend or old acquaintance, this is a good search. However, if someone is living some place where utilities are included or has multiple residences (vacation home or is a landlord and includes utilities) this might not be the best solution.

This is our most popular professional search and is used by many industry professionals when they must have a verified current address. This search is requested the most by law offices, collection agencies and process servers. This is an in-depth 4 week long investigation and promises a current address if at all possible. I will even say that if our investigators can’t find your subject with this search then it’s most likely that no one could.

How to find individual’s addresses by social security number

We are often asked this question and our top three answers are listed below.

    1. A good option is a basic reverse SSN search. This would provide the last reported address and address history information. This is the least expensive search and the investigator would conduct several manual proprietary searches using the subjects SSN to locate address information and conduct cross reference searches to assess which of the addresses were the most recently reported.This is a good low cost search option that can produce a current address but is not guaranteed since the investigator does not verify the last reported address is still current. If your subject moves often or has moved within the last year or so, it might not be current.
    2. A Utility search is often a better option to locate an address as you will find out where the subject has utilities in his/her name as verified by the SSN. This works best if you think your subject owns his/her own home or rents a place and has utilities in their own name. This would not be a good option if your subject owns multiple properties or, is a landlord that provides utilities with the rental. This would also not be a good choice if your subject was someone that may be living with a spouse or a roommate that has the utilities in their name or if your subject is renting where utilities are provided.
    3. The best option would be to request a Guaranteed Current Address Search. This is an in-depth search where the investigator will run down all leads during a 4 week long investigation. This is the only search that guarantees the investigator will verify the address is still current.
