The rapidly advancing technological world is outpacing the U.S. judicial system when you consider service of process. In June of 2012, a New York court denied the request of Chase Bank to locate and serve someone responsible for credit card fraud. The denial seems to stem from a mistrust of the social networking forum, and not necessarily from a logical standpoint.
With almost any job, there are certain risks. It is seldom acknowledged that there are great inherent risks in being a process server. When you are a process server, you are striving to complete a task that explicitly risks confronting angry or unhappy people. Bearing the bad news can sometimes mean risking your own well-being for the sake of meeting or exceeding job requirements. In the case of a process server in Arizona, those risks included getting shot.
