Global Skip Trace & People Locate Services

I-OnAsia is a Chambers & Partners ranked litigation support investigator with a team of specialists who locate people globally.

I-OnAsia’s Skip Tracing team loves to hunt for the bad guys.

I-OnAsia has successfully located hundreds of individuals who do not want to be found, not limited to:

(i) cyber criminals;

(ii) extortionists;

(iii) counterfeiters;

(vi) fraudsters;

(v) bad debtors; and

(vi.) other types of defendants and witnesses in civil and criminal cases.

Most skip tracing assignments are straightforward and can be performed without throwing good money after bad. I-OnAsia accesses global databases and scours the public record. Cyber sleuths run special code and scour the Dark Web for clues. Then, if need be, we interview local sources such as neighbors and former co-workers. The typical assignment takes a week.​

When cases are more difficult, I-OnAsia’s in-house team of specialists draws from past experiences to succeed. Here are a few examples of completed Skip Trace cases that started with very limited information:

  • Just an individual’s first name found on an application to open a bank account.
  • Only a website address, an ISP number, an email address, or a cellphone number.
  • A possible travel itinerary that includes only a city name and a likely date of travel.
  • No name for our target, just a name of a co-conspirator or a partner.

We use sophisticated search and link analysis technology to deliver value.

​Technology has always been utilized to enhance the intelligence gathering process. We have leapfrogged the competition with our global cyber analysis capability, ‘Heat Seeker’, which allows our global investigations and intelligence teams to obtain vital information from corporate records, social media, and even cryptocurrency transactions.

This technology helps answer time sensitive questions. ‘Heat Seeker’ speeds up the investigations process, allowing I-OnAsia’s in-house intelligence analysts to support HUMINT investigations on the ground, by identifying leads, locating possible witnesses, linking associates, and obtaining corporate records and hidden assets in some cases with offshore entities.
