On January 18, two private investigators will hold a joint webinar that will reveal many insider secrets about debt collection
practices, such as debtor screening, record investigation and skip tracing
. The duo not only wants to reveal tricks of the trade, but aims to help individuals who may currently be the target of a debt collector. Tampa, Florida-based Kevin G. Connell, founder of the employment pre-screening service AccuScreen.com, and private investigator Michele Stuart will host the hour-long webinar. Stuart possesses more than 20 years of experience in the field, particularly skip tracing and open source investigations. "We feel that this webinar is crucial for all of our clients to understand how to protect themselves and their families on the internet," Connell said in a statement. "I have heard Michele Stuart speak and was completely impressed with her knowledge and insight on open source investigations. [The presentation] will definitely make you think twice about what things you do on the internet," Connell continued. Stuart opened her own investigatory services in 1997, and more recently has spoken to law enforcement agencies nationwide, including the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, U.S. Marshals and others.
