The internet has made many things easier than they once would have been. Having instant access to name from phone number databases is one of the services that have come from the technology of the internet. In fact, police and FBI use the same directories that you now are able to use from your home computer.
Everyone has had a prank phone call at some time or another. Usually it is just young children playing and nothing to worry about. But, there are times when prank calls take on a downright scary situation. A few years ago, I was the victim of prank calls that left me scared and shaken every time I would get the calls. The caller knew where I lived and would say he was on the way over. I called the police, but the only way at that time to track down these calls was to put a phone trace on my phone and wait for the next call. It wasn’t a process that led to a high success rate in tracking down the person on the other end of the line.
It’s been years since I got another prank call. But recently, another set of phone number database prank calls began. The calls this time were not as scary or threatening as the calls I had dealt with before. They were still a bit worrisome not knowing who it was that kept calling. This time though, I used a popular name from phone number database and got the answers I needed on my own. The next night when the call came in I was ready. I not only greeted my prankster by name, but also let him know that I had his address! I told him I would be giving the information to the local police. That was the end of the prank calls. Can you imagine the shock he must have gotten when I called him by name? Priceless.
Whether you are dealing with prank or harassing calls, or maybe even having suspicions about mystery calls your spouse is receiving, doing a name from phone number search is easy. It lets you be in control and have answers and a peace of mind. The reverse lookups will cost a few dollars, but are well worth the money for the ease provided in getting the information you need. The specialized companies that provide these services have huge databases that are constantly updated. Nearly all phone numbers are available, and that includes cell phone and unlisted numbers.
