Skip Smasher To Shut Down!
After 18 years in business, Skip Smasher, the data source used by many skiptrace professionals will shut down for good. According to an email to all their subscribers, Robert Scott, the founder if Skip Smaher Inc. blamed “a number of new consumer data privacy laws” on his reason for closing doors. Visitors to Skipsmasher.com are met with a plain white screen with nothing more than their trademarked stern-faced man looking even more pissed! After logging in, the user sees a gracious thank you from Scott and a link to a FAQ page that offers no more than included in his notification email. “Unfortunately, the additional new burdens make continuing Skip Smasher both impractical and unprofitable” Scott writes in the newly established shut-down FAQ’s.
Users have until December 15, 2022 to use any remaining balance for searches or data. Otherwise, it's lost to what I can only assume as Scott’s retirement fund. I, for one, have used Skip Smasher ever since I became licensed in 2012 and really relied on its unique search tools.
I wish Scott the best of luck in his life without Skip Smasher, because now I begin the search for a new data provider!
