You can't see who you're hunting on the bounty hunter terminals. (which really sucks by the way, soe!) You need to send out Arakyd probe droids to determine which planet they are on, then go to that planet and send out seeker droids (the droids darth maul used to locate qui-gon jinn in the phantom menace) , you have 2 options with the seeker droids. the one option which i use is the 'identify target' and that lets you see the name of who you are hunting.
The max amount of bounty hunters per mark is THREE. So you'll have a little competition.
Smugglers can show marks how much they're worth as well as who is hunting them (very very lame about the 'who is hunting them' deal....)
There are two kinds of marks:
Rebel/Imperial Operatives are marks that have Deathblowed others, and either racked up enough to get a bounty, or whoever they deathblowed, put money towards placing them on the terminals.
Smuggler Operatives are marks that have chose a higher risk factor that allows them to be hunted on a smuggling mission, so you gotta be quick before they complete their mission. nearly impossible to do.
NPC marks are gonna be the most rewarding, as you get a maximum of 32,000 credits, and they drop some good loot, including the bounty hunter armor schematics, which you can have crafted into armor by a munitions trader.
Another thing that Bounty Hunters get is the ability to JAM the Uplink Terminals of Imperial/Rebel Bases, the first step to taking down a player-placed base.
