Eliminate "Sewer Service!"
The term "sewer service" in reference to a Process Server describes someone who tossed the paperwork down the sewer and falsely claimed they'd tried their best. There are still those who'll try, however today's residents now have the ability to utilize inexpensive home security cameras. In 2019 a Florida Process Server was Fired for falsely reporting Service of Legal Process.
Even the most basic mobile device & free camera app can become an enormously powerful tool. The name of the "photographer," physical address, GPS coordinates, date, and time can be "stamped" onto digital photos, which are independently verified by Google! Our use of GPS photos as an integral part of our attempt log precludes the possibility of making such a "mistake."
While GPS Logging for Process Servers isn't required, our goal is to provide complete transparency.

Unfortunately, this post is also a great example of why it's important to be sure that the Process Server you work with is properly insured.
