Some of them receive very annoying prank calls in the middle of the night or want to find out who has been calling their spouse.
There are also parents who want to know the friends of their children.
Up until a few years ago the only way you could get access to this information would be to hire a private investigator, but with the advances of today's technology you can trace any number in a few minutes and very cheaply.
There are a lot of legitimate companies that offer this kind of data for only a couple of dollars.
By using their service you will be able to gain access to:
- The caller's full name.
- The owner's address, city and state.
- Their service provider.
- Confidential data like social security number, vehicle owner records, birth certificate, divorce and criminal records and many more.
After you register, you will be able to run unlimited searches and background checks.
The great thing about these websites is that the allow you to do an initial lookup for free, so you can make sure that they have the number in their database before you pay them anything.
Still, if you are not pleased with the results you can always get a refund.
Unfortunately, there are no free services you can use because cell numbers unlike land line numbers don't belong in the public domain.
These directories have paid the cell phone companies to gain access to these records, so they must charge a small fee to cover their costs.
