I see. Assuming he will not give you his address, you'll need to do a little sleuthing or hire a detective to assist you since you will need his address in order to have him personally served with the summons and complaint. There are a number of websites which provide information on individuals. One that I have used on a number of occasions but there are many others. Of course, the more information you have, like location, approximate age, etc., the easier it will be to narrow down your search results. This is the most cost-effective method I'm aware of for locating private individuals, unless you have a merchant account with one of the credit reporting agencies. Tina
