If you are getting unknown or prank calls and need to find out who an unlisted phone number belongs to here are a few things you can try. This will also work to trace most cell phones, whether they are unlisted or not.
Getting unknown prank calls can be very annoying. Perhaps you’re getting calls in the middle of the night, or constant calls from telemarketers. Maybe you need to find out who your husband or wife has been calling. The first thing you can try since it is free is to write down the phone number from your caller ID and enter into one of the major search engines like Google. In most cases this will not give you any results, but it’s worth a try.
You may get some results back if the person has entered their phone number on a post or perhaps an auction or ad somewhere. Otherwise you’re out of luck. You will have to use a reverse phone search service. If you look you’ll find tons of sites claiming to be free. What will actually happen is you’ll be taken to a certain point and then have to pay for the information. The sites are misleading because they claim they are free when they are really not. If you do actually find a free one I can almost guarantee you will not get any information back. They all use free databases, which is the same information you could find in Google.
To trace a cell phone or an unlisted number you’re going to have to pay a small fee and use a professional reverse phone search service. These sites pay for their information so they have to charge you a small fee in order to maintain their service. The good thing about it is that any cell phone number, or unlisted number can be traced. This is the type of information they specialize in.
Some sites will let you select the option of paying for a one-time search fee, which is lower than they yearly or lifetime membership. However, if you ever need to do another search you will have to pay again. So in most cases, the yearly or lifetime membership is a much better deal. Once you discover how useful the service can be you’ll want to do more than one search.
You’ll be amazed at how much dirt, you can actually dig up on someone. Depending on what service you join, you may be able to get criminal and court records, marriage and divorce records, address and job history, financial records, plus much more. The easiest way to end a prank call is to call them back and tell them you know who they are, where they live and where they work. You can also mention, you know about their criminal background if they have one. Most prank callers are so shocked that you know all this they never call again. In most cases, it’s usually an ex-girlfriend or boyfriend, hiding behind a new phone number.
This service is also great for running background checks on new employees, new girlfriends or boyfriends, or to check out that new babysitter. All you need is their phone number. And since all searches are confidential they will never know you ran a check on them. A few years ago you had to hire a private investigator to get this type of information, but now you can access the same information they use and get it online.
