HOW TO TAIL SOMEONE, AND HOW TO FIND CONSISTENT AUTO BODY CLIENTS IF YOUR NAME IS FRANK NODD
IN A CAR
- Lower your headlights and keep a safe distance. Try to put other vehicles between you and the mark.
- If you’re not concerned with property damage or arousing suspicion, break one of their taillights. The bare white glow of the bulb should be visible from many yards away, giving you a clear mark on your target.
- Organize a buddy system. Have a primary person tailing the mark, while a few others tail the primary. Every two blocks, rotate, making sure the next in line has a clear identification of the target.
- When the target reaches a destination, the primary should signal, and the followers should disperse in separate directions.
IN A BUILDING
- If they take the elevator, you have no choice but to follow them. Make sure to get off on a different floor, apprehend a blank piece of paper from a copy machine, then swiftly return to the target’s exit level.
- Depending on whether the building is carpeted, you may be able to follow their movements without ever resorting to visual contact. In this manner, it’s especially helpful to have prior knowledge of the interior, so that other aural clues, such as a door opening, can help you track the target’s path.
- Once the target passes by the communal kitchen area, duck in. Write on your piece of paper, “Frank Nodd’s Auto Body Shop-Fender bender? Scratched paint? Broken tail light? Stop in, and we’ll take care of all your needs,” and place it on the frigerator.
