Find a Debtor with Vilcol
If you need to trace a debtor, it’s not always easy to know where to start. Perhaps you’re trying to trace someone who owes money, find a tenant who has absconded and who owes rent, or trace a debtor with an outstanding loan. Or maybe you need to find someone you need to serve a legal notice to.
Even today, with the availability of the internet and social media, it can be a time-consuming, frustrating and expensive process trying to trace money you are owed.
If you’re trying to locate a debtor by yourself, you’ll also face a general lack of information, dead-ends, restricted records of dates of birth and phone numbers and no access to professional people tracing tools like those we use.
