Doing unlisted phone number searches are a good way to find out who is the owner of an unknown phone number. If you get prank calls that come up as unlisted you can preform a search to expose the persons name and address plus a lot more.
Reverse phone searches have been used by private investigators and detectives for many years and now anyone can get access to the same services the professionals use. To trace an unlisted number, first write the number down complete with area code. If the number does not show on your caller ID use * 69 to get the number.
The first thing you can try is to enter Phone: 555-555-5555 into Google or any other major search engine and see what you get back. The bad thing is that most unlisted or cell phones will not show any results. At this point your only other option is to use a reverse call search service. While there are a lot of free ones out there you will soon discover they are pretty worthless.
All the free services use the same old free data base to run their site on. The data base is public domain and is usually the same info you can find out for free by using a search engine. Paying a small fee to use a paid or professional service is well worth it for the amount of private info you will discover about the person or phone you are looking up.
I was pretty amazed the first time I ran my number through. Pretty shocking on the info that is out there that other people can find out. Name, address, court records, criminal records, marriage, financial and more. Depending on what service you join. So is it worth paying the fee. I thought so, in fact I opted in for the yearly membership. Once you start looking up numbers you will find yourself checking everyone out. Works great for checking out a new boyfriend or girlfriend. Are they really telling you the truth? Run their number and see.
All services are not created equal so it would be wise to use one of the top rated sites. There are a few that are nothing but scams and seem to take your money and give you nothing in return, so stick to a well known service with a good reputation.
