Default How to track someone down?

I'm trying to serve papers on a "friend" who decided to do 60 down my alley and total my old car.


Problem is I cant find him.

He was evicted out of apt a few days after the accident with no forwarding address.

What I do have:

Social Security Number
Full Name
Previous Addresses.

I also know:
He collects a check everymonth for being mentally ill, and in order for a social security check to go thru I belive you have to have an address, problem is the SSA will not tell me where they are sending the check.

People who know where he lives now:
Social Security administraton
post office
loan office (friend saw him there, but no papers to serve)

I've never hunted anyone down before.


How do I find someone like that?

You might try getting a court order for the SSA to release the info to the court.

Thats probibly your best bet other then just happening to run into him. with all the new privacy laws arround its hard to get people to give up information. try and get the courts on your side here and they might be able to get it.

The choices I would recommend are:

I would consult with an attorney.

Or if you know someone in authority they might be able to give you some help. I've always beleived it isn't what you know but WHO you know. You'd be amazed at what you can accomplish with friends in high places.

Or you can lurk around the loan office, if he was there once he might be there again. This one is a long shot but it is a start.

Or if you have the money do one of those people finder searches online and it will cost about $30 or so.

With his SSN and name you should be able to track him.

Know-X:

I have used both Know-X and Intelius before with great success.

I didn't know it was your responsibility to serve papers.

No, he cannot serve the papers, however, he needs to find out where he is first. I use the Sheriff'* Department to serve papers; it tends to intimidate the recipient.
