    Ok guys-gonna pool some ideas here. I know someone who had to put a restraining order on a guy who's a private investigator/personal security by trade. Well, restraining orders aren't enough to hold some people back and this guy is good at tracking (obviously) as well as a little cray cray.

    So-if you had to drop off the radar to where someone couldn't track you, how would you do it? The person has already moved out of state, and had a lock put on their credit report to prevent looking up any new address's that way. We've already checked their vehicle for any tracking devices as well-that was clean.

    I'm really hoping for any feed back from people who have worked AS private investigators (coughTXIcough) or WITH private investigators. However-any ideas in general are helpful as well. C'mon y'all-lets help this person drop off the radar!! :D

    Unless you are willing to totally change your identity and never use anything electronic again and never have anything to do with anyone or anything from your former life it ain't gonna happen

    Move to the most unlikely place possible. No drivers license. Work under the table. Pay EVERYTHING in CASH. No utilities in your name. Absolutely NO banks, period. And most of all, absolutely NO contact with anyone from your past. Friends, family,,,,,,,everone. If you do, move again. No state issued ID either. You suddenly cease to excist. GOOD LUCK. It's possible but not easy. Most can't stand being that much of a nobody.

    Working in the collection agency business our skip tracers would call family, former colleagues, and such and get them talking.

    Even next door neighbors.

    They need to tell everyone to keep lips tight about any information about the ware abouts of this person.

    Another thing I'd do is poison the well with false information. Create a story that leads to a dead end or dead ends.

    Now is the time to review public posts on Facebook and Google themselves and others they know.

    Thankyou JRB-we are slowly getting to that point with this person.

    Matefrio-We already let the previous lot owners know what the deal is and not to give any address out to anyone...even if they "just need to forward a box of personal items". They took the note, are making sure all employees get it, and the manager took note of it as well. The previous neighbors don't know anything and anyone who knows even what state this person moved to knows not to give out the info. That's a good tip about the skip tracers though. That's the kind of info I'm looking for here. What are some tips for creating a story that leads to dead ends? I wouldn't know where to begin with that. I'll make it look like this person moved to the other side of the country :D

    I'd seed a digital pictures exf info with gps coordinates from another state and have a Facebook account open to the public where someone talks about rain or something that is happening in the area. Mention a make or model of car that is different than what they are driving. Mention a hair color change or style change. Mention a false police office in that area where they filed a restraint order.

    If there are kids name changes that are fake as well. Go back to the lot owners and give them fake information. Say they are learning Spanish. Taking up skiing or enjoying a trip to a a amusement park. Put letters in the mailbox addressed to random places.

    Most investigators are former LEO'S that have contacts to help them look things up. Think how they get information and poison that well.

    Don't make it easy to find the information you are misleading about. Remember the best lies at 99.99999 percent the truth.

    Had to do some editing, I was on my phone earlier.

    If someone strikes up a conversation with someone, "inadvertantly" mention old friends from school from Seattle, or NY, anywhere, far,far,away. But not too far. Sometimes, the best place to hide is right out in the open. Many people miss what they don't expect. Just enough truth to seem like a falsehood.
