This can leave the investigation open to errors because of the possible inaccuracy of said information. However, vulnerability can be mitigated when one easy, yet necessary step is taken.

A Social Security Trace is a database search that is a compilation of virtually every geographical location in which a specific social security number appears. Additionally, it can reveal other names that might be tied to that social security number. Upon reviewing the results of a social trace one can decide whether or not it might be necessary to broaden the subject’s investigation.
