How to find an old flame


Candle flames kissing
Get your personal background check

Have you been thinking about an old flame recently? A really good friend that you have warm feelings towards but lost touch with years ago?


Begin your search for someone now

Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. You loved and lost but now you wish you could find them again. You might be thinking that locating someone after so much time has gone by is impossible and until recently you would have been right. In the past it has been incredibly difficult to track people down, but today it’s a very different story.

How would you like to find all your old friends? Your neighbors, former work colleagues or even all your old school friends from the yearbook. Maybe you just want to find that one person who holds a special place in your heart. Well now you can do all of this.

The Internet is a vast information database at your fingertips

As the Internet has grown, so have the tools that enable us to use what amounts to a vast library of information. You can find information about almost anything that you can imagine. In fact, it has come to the point where it is difficult to keep your information off the World Wide Web.

Every one of us, unless you are a complete recluse, leaves a digital trail wherever we go and if you know how to access and use that online data you can find out a great deal about almost anyone you want.

The rise of incredibly powerful public records web sites

Finding people has become a matter of typing a name into a search engine like this one. Web sites that gather billions of pieces of information from publicly available records both online and offline now make this information available to you in an easily searchable format.

Can you find everyone using these web sites? No, but I have personally managed to locate several people in the US that I had lost touch with and I never left my living room while I was doing it.

Every day public records websites get bigger, more powerful, more efficient and much more useful. They can only get better as time goes on because new data is being added all the time.

Finding people using private investigators

There are other ways of finding people of course. You could hire a private investigator to find them for you. It’s easy and generally effective. But it’s a service that will cost you good money and you will end up paying over and over again if you have several people that you want to locate.

Do it yourself people location

You could do the investigative work yourself. Start at the point when you were last in touch and try to think of mutual acquaintances who you might still have contact details for. If you can remember where they worked give them a call. Maybe someone there remembers them and can give you more leads.

Get in touch with these people and see if you can trace the person that you are looking for. This can be a rewarding exercise, but you may end up having to speak to some people who you would rather have remained lost so be careful.

Locate someone by name the easy way

Before you dive into hiring private eyes or roll your sleeves up to start the hard work yourself at least try using an online records site to find details of the person including where they live. You might be pleasantly surprised at what you can find and how easily that you can find it. Not only is it possible to locate someone using a site like this, but you can also access a whole load of information about them.

Find out if they have a criminal record before you pick up the phone to give them a call. You may change your mind if you do.

How To Find Out Who Owns A Car By The Licence Plate Number

Thursday, June 27th, 2013
Example license plateMembers license plate searches

Public records vehicle information

Imagine what you could do if you could find out who owns the car that just drove off with your wife or your girlfriend or your husband. I’m not suggesting that they could be cheating on you of course but wouldn’t it be nice to know who they are going off with? What if you need to find someone in relation with a legal problem that you are trying to sort out? A reverse license plate search would be an invaluable tool in such circumstances.

Obtaining information about vehicle numbers that are not your own is difficult if not impossible by normal channels. This is because such information isn’t generally considered public in the same way as real estate property is. It is a relatively trivial matter to find out who owns a house so it’s hard to see why vehicles are not considered in the same way.

Public records websites are starting to gather information surrounding license plates. I have been waiting for it to happen and I do believe that I might have found a small but usable public records database that is growing and expanding it’s vehicle data rapidly.

Public records reverse license lookup

At the time of writing, the site that I’m going to tell you about doesn’t even announce that it offers reverse number plate searches. It’s so new that they don’t want to tell everyone about it yet. If you sign up to their almost free trial you will see that the vehicle options are there in your members area. The site is called
Everify.

Can you look up a license plate for free

I was told about this new search option by the owner of the database who told me that it was still experimental but that it was getting better every day. He said that they are very pleased with it’s progress. I don’t know where they get their data from but there is a very cheap trial on offer if you want to give it a try. When I looked you could still get full access to the records site for a few days for only one dollar. That’s about the closest to a free license plate search as you are going to get.

Why search for vehicle numbers?

Finding someone in connection with a court case is a common use of a license plate lookup. For instance, you might be trying to trace someone who has defaulted on payments that a court awarded you. Their car plates or vehicle identification number (VIN) can be invaluable clues when it comes to locating them.

Have you ever arrived at work and found another car parked in your space? Frustrating isn’t it? What if you could find out their name by using the license number from their car? If you could do that then you could go and have a nice quiet chat with them and let them know that they should be parking elsewhere.

Are you just curious about who owns a flash car in your neighborhood. Perhaps it’s a car that you often see cruising and you wonder if they are just young people out for the ride or maybe there is something more sinister going on. It might be worth just checking who owns the car before you call the police.

Public records vehicle and driver databases are currently in their infancy but they are growing fast. Unless you have a legitimate reason for for finding someone from their plates and you can get a police officer or a private investigator to look it up for you then public records databases are your only option. Isn’t it worth a dollar or so to find out if the number plate is in the Everify database? Go on, try it out now.

Inteligator - Unlimited Public Records

Are you looking for someone? Perhaps you have just met a new friend and you want to find out if they are who they say they are. You can’t be too careful these days can you? So how do you start searching for someone online and can it be done for free?

Now you may or not know that it is possible to look up just about anyone in the US of A by using commercial public records databases like Inteligator.  See my review of this website here.

This particular site can be used for finding people and investigating their background but it isn’t free. It is inexpensive however and you can do a lot with the low cost trial that they offer. I love how easy it is to use this site but I wanted to see if it was possible to locate people on the Internet absolutely free. I did have some success as you will see.

Finding People with the Google search engine

The first thing that I tried was to type in the persons first and last name straight into the Google search box. This simple technique can sometimes be surprisingly effective if the name you are looking for isn’t very common or the subject is famous for something. However if you are looking for someone with a common name like “John Smith” then be prepared to receive floods of irrelevant search results. Don’t give up yet though because there are ways of refining your search query to give you a better chance of finding what you are looking for.

Refining your search

The first thing to do is make sure that you are signed out of any Google services. Google have a nasty habit of modifying your search results to give you what it thinks you want based on your previous Internet activity. This is unlikely to be very helpful when you are trying to find someone who you have not searched for before. So sign out so that Google doesn’t know who you are.

The Google search engine can be very powerful in the right hands and most people have no clue about the many useful features that it offers. If you can master just a few of these search tools then you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.

Start finding someone now with public records

Search by region

The first thing that you might want to do is limit the geographical area where you want your search to apply. If you know that the person you are searching for has always lived in the US then there is probably little point in searching the rest of the world for them.

To limit your search results to the US go to the Advanced Search page. There should be a link labeled “Advanced Search” at the bottom of your search results. You may need to do a simple search first before this link appears. Click on it to get to the advanced settings.

The Advanced page allows you to set various filters including “region” Select the “United States” region from the drop down menu, enter the person’s name in the “all these words” box at the top then click the “Advanced Search” button at the bottom.

The region filter isn’t 100% effective at keeping the rest of the world out but it tries it’s best for you.

Search for the exact phrase using quotation marks

If you simply type the words “John” and “Smith” into the Google box without the quotes then the results that you get will consist of pages that contain both words anywhere on the page in any order. This means that you are likely to find pages mentioning “John Doe” and “Jane Smith” and thousands of other pages like it, equally irrelevant to what you are searching for.

You can easily fix this problem by enclosing your search query in quotation marks e.g. “John Smith” including the quotes. Google will now only show you pages that have those 2 words together and in that order. This tiny modification to your search query can make a huge difference to the quality of your results. You can enclose as many words as you want in quote marks so you might want to try adding a middle name. This is worth trying but might not be very effective because most people rarely use their middle names.

Still too many results

So you have limited your search to a single region or country and you are searching for the person’s name in quotes for an exact match but you are still not getting the results that you were hoping for. What next?

Adding another word

When you type words or phrases in quotes into the search box you will get results that contain all of those words or phrases. So you can improve your search by finding a word or phrase that applies to your person but not to everyone by that name. For instance if you know where they live then you might search for ["John Smith" Alabama] or ["John Smith" Orlando]. I’m using the square brackets here to enclose everything that is typed into the Google box. This time you will get only web pages that mention the name and area you entered.

I have had some luck with this method as it tends to deliver results from address and phone directories. Most of these directories require payment before you can see all the information but often the free information is enough to confirm an address or phone number.

What is your subject known for?

Is there anything about the person that you are looking for that might make them stand out from the crowd? Is she a pilot for instance? Does she keep a pet? do you know their profession? Here are some examples of search queries that you could try: ["Jane Smith" pilot], ["John Smith" tiddles], ["John Smith" carpenter] etc. Any one of these queries could dig up gold for you when you find the right person from a social media page, professional networking site or even their own website or blog.

Searching for businesses

Finding a business online is usually a very simple task using Google, Yahoo,  Bing or even one of the lesser known search engines. Generally speaking, businesses want to be found online so they make efforts to ensure that they can be found easily. Try entering the name of the business and the location into the Google box and more often or not, you will find what you are after.

What else can you do with a Google Search?

You can do all sorts of things with a Google query. For instance you can use “OR” between words when you want to find pages with either or all of your search words. An example of this might be if you were looking for recipes that were either [Vegetarian OR Vegan].

If you put a “-” in front of a word then you are looking for pages that do not include that word e.g. [salsa -dance] meaning that you are interested in the sauce and not the dance.

Another powerful query operator is called a tilde “~”. Place this squiggle character in front of a word to find pages with words that are similar to the one you entered. So the query [~pet] will find pages with any of the words “pet”, “dog”, “cat, “Fish”, “animal” etc.

You can find a list of the basic search operators here and a more comprehensive and detailed list here

Searching for people with Google is as close to free as it gets but you do have to take the time to learn the skill of searching and then hope that the information is there to find. It can often be so much easier and quicker to use a people finder website which may provide you with far more information than you can hope to get from Google alone.

For a very small fee you can get a trial subscription to an excellent public records website called Inteligator You have very little to lose by giving it a try. You could be finding people in no time
at all.

Inteligator Review – Access Free Public Records And Background Checks

Inteligator Review Unlimited Public Records

Background check someone now

Inteligator is one of the best and most cost effective web sites for background checks and public records available to you. Unlike many similar web sites that want to charge you for each search that you do, Inteligator allows you to do as many free searches on as many people as you want. Instead of charging you for each search you just pay a small membership fee each month.

You may be wondering at this point why you would want to sign up for a monthly membership when you only want to do a background check on one person or to see if you have any arrest warrants. This is exactly what I thought before I logged in to the Inteligator site to research for this review and I can tell you that I’m totally hooked on it.

How do I find an old friend?

I wanted to do a background search on someone that I hadn’t seen for some time. Well my first search was a waste because I spelled his name wrong but I found the information that I was looking for on my second try. I found his address which is what I was after but that’s not all that I found.

I found his phone number and some names of relatives and neighbors. I could see that he is married and that he owns his own home. There is a lot more in the report but the best part was the link to a Google map where I could even find pictures of his house on Google Street.

I did try using the Birth records search a couple of times but this only gives you a list of names and ages with few details. I found that it’s best to use the Background Check search instead. This gives you the same list of people but also gives you access to the background detail which is much more useful.

Search for arrest warrants and criminal records

Search arrest warrants free with membership Now that I had found him I decided to do a criminal records search and an arrest warrant search on him too. Thankfully I didn’t find any but just to make sure that the system was working I looked up someone who I knew would have a warrant and sure enough the search found him.

Don’t stop there – check out relatives and neighbors too

By this time I was having great fun and I decided to look up his relatives and his neighbors to see if they had and criminal records or arrest warrants. They didn’t but the results from background checks on his relatives turned up the name of someone else I used to know a long time ago.

This is a web site that I’m going to be using more and more for a long time and it was easy to see how it can save you money. If you had used a site that charged you for every search you did then doing what I did to find one old friend would have cost you many months worth of unlimited searches at Inteligator.

Public Records Searches available in the members area:

  • Arrest Warrant Search
  • Arrest Records Search
  • Background Check
  • State Criminal Records Search
  • National Criminal Records Search
  • Sex Offender Search
  • Inmate Search
  • People Search by Name
  • People Search by Address
  • People Search by Phone
  • Reverse Phone Search
  • Business Search
  • Relative Search
  • Neighborhood Check
  • Birth Records Search
  • Marriage Records Search
  • Divorce Records Search
  • Death Records Search
  • Reverse IP Search

Inteligator is easy to use

The Inteligator web site is easy to navigate and remarkably fast considering that there is over a billion records in it’s various databases. You can comfortably look up background checks, arrest warrants and other stuff on several people in less than 10 minutes. The best part is that you can do as many searches as you want for free on as many people as you want as often as you want. It won’t cost you a cent more than your monthly membership fee.

You can’t afford not to have Ineligator working for you

If you are dating then you need to make sure that your dates are telling you the truth and are not criminals. If you hire people to do work for you or invite them into your house then you want to do a background check on them first. If you use babysitters or nannies then you must check them out before leaving them with your child. You might just want to locate people that you haven’t seen in a long time. Inteligator is perfect for doing all of these things and more. Can you afford to be without it? Give it a try. It comes with a very good guarantee which means that you aren’t taking any kind of risk but I think that you will want to keep your membership for a long time to come.

How To Find Out If Someone Died Or Where They are Buried

Monday, March 29th, 2010

If you only have a name how do you find out if someone has died?

Find out if someone has died now

It’s true that the less you know about someone then the harder it is to find them or to find out information about them but often it isn’t impossible. I’ll bet there have been times when you’ve thought about someone that you once knew well when suddenly you realized that you haven’t seen them for years and you have no idea where they are now or if they are alive or dead. You might be thinking about someone right now.

Not so long ago it would have been almost impossible to find your old friends unless you knew someone who knew where they were. Few of us have the money to hire a private detective to hunt them down either. Things are changing however. The Internet brings you so many opportunities and one of the great advances in recent years has been the availability of information including death records. There is masses of information available to you in the form of public records and much of it is online if you know where to look.

The problem with searching for public records online is that there is so much information available and it’s distributed all over the Internet. Sometimes it can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. You know it’s there somewhere but how do you find it.

Help is at hand

Unless you have a very good idea about what it is you are looking for and where to go to find it, you could be facing a very long period of research ahead of you. But it doesn’t have to be like this. You are not the only one with the same problems and desires. In fact millions of people find themselves wanting to find someone at least once in their lives. It’s no surprise therefore that the Internet community has come up with ways of solving this problem for you.

The easiest way of locating someone from the past is of course, to ask someone who knows. A mutual friend or relative who can give you any kind of information will be useful to you. Asking around like this might lead you straight to the person that you are looking for but if it doesn’t then you might have picked up some vital clues that could prove useful when you start your Internet search.

Save time by spending money on the problem

If after asking around you still don’t have much information to go on but you do have plenty of money to spare then you could hire a private investigator to find the person for you. Obviously the more information that you can give the PI, the easier the job is likely to be. Private investigators have been doing this kind of work for a very long time so you should get results. Today I think that their job is a little easier as they can use the Internet and public records databases just as easily as you can.

Private investigators can work out expensive and you will have to pay them whether they succeed or not. A cheaper option which might get you the results you need is to go online and use a service that specializes in finding and gathering all the public records available. Using this type of web site you can search for information from a multitude of different sources all at the same time. You might be able to find someone very quickly and at a fraction of the cost of a private investigator.

Find out anything about anyone – almost

The ability to search for public records from a multitude of different sources, in the same time that it takes to make a phone call, makes it possible to find a lot of information about a lot of people very quickly. It doesn’t always work but if you can find someone in the database then you can often learn crucial clues to their whereabouts. Death records are available for you to search in the event that the person has died.

Can I Find A Person By Using Name Only | Having Fun Finding People

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

What could be more fun than finding people you know?

Find a person online now

Have you ever spent time looking into someone’s past or digging up gossip on them? Was it fun? I bet it was. What if you could have the same fun finding information on people that you haven’t seen for some time? Perhaps you are looking for an old boyfriend or girlfriend. It would be good to locate them again or just find out what they have been up to and if they got married or not.

You can find someone by using their name only and it can be a lot of fun doing it. Here is how you can do it.

What’s the secret of locating people?

Some say that “knowledge is power”, others say that “information is power”. They are both right. If you want to find someone amongst the millions of people out there then you need information and lots of it. But information by itself isn’t enough. You also need the knowledge to be able to use that information wisely.

If you have the information and the knowledge and means to organize and search that information then you can use it for all kinds of interesting tasks such as finding people.

Public records are free but how do you find what you are looking for?

Finding people when all you have is a name is like detective work. You have to start with what you know and keep searching until you find enough clues to put the puzzle together. There is a very good chance that the clues that you need are buried in some public records somewhere if only you knew how to find it.

Public records are generally free for you to access but unfortunately there is no official central store of public records. They are kept in thousands of separate databases all over the place. Some of them are on the Internet and some of them are not. Unless you have a good idea of what you are looking for and where to go for it you can spend a lot of time going nowhere.

What if there was a place that you could go where they collect all the public records that they can get their hands on and make them available to you from one easy to use web site? It would make things so much easier wouldn’t it.

It should come as no surprise to find that there are web sites that have been collecting public records for years. Why is it not surprising? Well there is a huge demand for such a service. After all, it’s a service that you can use to find someone you are looking for and there are a lot of people doing exactly the same thing. Where there is a demand for something it will eventually be provided.

Find a person by name only doing unlimited background checks

There are a number of good public records web sites out there and I have used some of them to find people myself. I can tell you that if you are looking for someone starting with limited information like only their name, then you may need to do a lot of searches before you find enough pieces of the puzzle to find them with. That’s why I prefer to use a web site that offers unlimited public records searches for a reasonable monthly fee rather than paying for each and every search that you do.

Having used both pay-by-search and unlimited search public records web sites I can tell you that you will likely have much more fun when you subscribe to unlimited searches. Why? Because it gives you the power to do whatever and as many searches as you want to. You can search for all of your friends and look up their relatives and neighbors too. Check out your neighbors and the people that you hire to do work for you. The possibilities are endless so give it a try today.

Look for as many people as you want with unlimited background checks

Can I Find A Person By Using Name Only? Find Them Online Like I Do

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Yes you can find people online with just their name

Find someone online now

I had been putting off looking for an old friend that I had lost touch with many years ago because I just didn’t believe that I would even be able to find him. Anyway after a couple of well known people died unexpectedy I thought that I would have a go. I thought that if I left it too long then it could be too late. I wasn’t expecting much when I went online to start my search but I was fortunate enough to come across a web site that allowed me to find him surprisingly quickly. If you want to know how I did it then read on.

I’ve become accustomed to finding things that I need on the Internet so I thought that I might be able to use it to find people too. How right I was – You can find masses of information about people in amongst free public records if you know where to look.

It’s all there in public records and free for the asking too if you can find it. But I found a secret weapon. A web site that has gathered billions of records of public information from both online and offline sources and made easily accessible. All I had to do was enter the name, do a few searches and there he was.

Unlimited searches of free public records

In fact I found more than one public records database site that would have allowed me to find my friend but I found one that lets you do unlimited searches. This works out a lot cheaper and you can use it to find more than one person and as much background information on them as you need.

I was impressed by this site and I think that you will be too. It searches through billions of records in lightening fast time so it doesn’t take long to find things.

Just enter the name of someone you want to find into the people locator then do background checks on the results to find the person you are looking for. You may get more than one record turn up so you will need to find all the information that is in the database on them to make sure you have the right one.

Finding people and information about them is fun

Are you still wondering “can I find a person using name only”? Well why not give it a try. Not everyone can be found in this way but I think that they might be the exceptions. I’ve managed to find quite a few people that I was looking for and I’ve had fun doing it.

Because you can do as many searches as you want to without it costing any more there is no reason for not doing a full background search on a person to reveal their address, criminal record, telephone numbers, relatives and even their neighbors. And why stop there? Do a background check on the persons neighbors to see what sort of a neighborhood that they live in. Check out their remlatives to find out what their family is like.

How To Locate People: Find Someone On The Internet Before Its Too Late

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

Don’t leave it too long to find your friends – You might be too late

Find someone now

There’s nothing quite like a funeral to make people decide to start a family earlier rather than later or resolve to find old friends. Yes it happened to me. My father died and my daughter was born 9 months later. funerals are your wake up call to remind you that you are mortal and that noone lives forever. We had been putting off having children until the time was right – whenever that might have been – but suddenly none of our reasons seemed to make any sense anymore. My only regret is that my father never got to see his grandchild.

In some people, funerals instill a burning need to get on with life and your family. In others it reminds you of all the people that you have lost touch with throughout your life and you start to wonder if you will ever get to see them again. This can be your wake up call to take action and find the lost people in your life before you are too late. Why don’t you learn how to track people, find someone on the Internet and get in touch with them again. I’ve done it and so can you. It’s a lot easier than you think.

Some funerals affect more than just family

When someone in your family dies it might make you and a few others think seriously about your own lives, your own family and the people that you’ve known and lost touch with. When someone well known passes away it can touch millions of people and the effect are felt so much harder when the person dies at an early age or before their time.

Pricess Diana, Michael Jackson, Elvis – they all died before they should have and their passing has touched millions of people all over the world. These events not only cause lives to change, they cause visible changes in society with spikes in the birth rate and people searching for old friends.

Life is too short to put things off – Find people today not tomorrow

When you and I and the whole world witness the tragic death of a genius at only 50 years of age it makes you think. There was very little visibly wrong with Michael Jackson in fact, he was in the middle of rehearsals so the news came as a massive shock to us all. If it can happen to MJ then it can happen to anyone.

How to locate people with public records online

Would you be surprised if I told you that it’s possible to find people on the Internet by using a simple to operate web site that has most of the available free public records right there in it’s database? I know, I didn’t believe it either until I tried it out for myself.

It’s true though, you can find almost anyone, even if all you have is name sometimes. Some people can be more difficult to find than others, especially if they have a common name or you’re not sure of the state they live in but I managed to find many people without too much searching at all. Why don’t you give it a try – Learn how to locate people and find them on the Internet before it’s too late.

Reverse Telephone Numbers: Finding People Isnt A Chore Anymore

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

How to find people with a residential phone number lookup

Lookup reverse telephone numbers here

Did you know that it’s possible to search for someone on the Internet when all you have to go on is a telephone number? Yes it’s true, you can search for numbers that belong to businesses or you can lookup residential numbers. You can do a lookup search for reverse telephone numbers on the Internet and it’s surprisingly simple and easy to do.

Are you looking for someone that you used to know from way back when? Is it someone you used to date years ago and lost touch with when you broke up? Maybe you didn’t actually break up with them but you got separated by work and the relationship didn’t survive. Have you got to a point in your life where you’ve started to think about old friends and how nice it would be to hook up with them again?

The internet has to be the best invention of the recent past, at least that’s what I think. It’s not that many years ago that finding answers to questions or information about things or people meant looking it up in books, trips to the library or learning it in courses. Now the answer to practically any question you can think of is available to you by logging in to the Internet and typing your question into Google or one of the other search engines.

Ok, you can’t find out absolutely everything about anything – yet – but compared to what it was like before the Internet came along it’s now a million times easier to find stuff out. Locating people is one of the most interesting and useful things that you can now do on the Internet. You can search for people by name or email address or social security number. You can even locate someone if all you have is a telephone number. Even if it’s not a current number you can use it to find important clues that can lead you to their whereabouts.

You are not the only one who wants to locate a long lost friend

Noone wants to lose touch with good friends, neighbors, work colleagues or family but it seems to happen to most, if not all of us, at some point. Even people who have been very close for a very long time can find that their circumstances change in some way which leads to less and less contact and before you know it you don’t even know where the person lives anymore. It sounds hard to believe but this can even happen to married couples in rare cases.

How to use a telephone number to locate a person

It’s surprising how little information you need to give you a good chance of finding someone on the Internet. Knowing their name is a good start but unless it’s a very unusual name you might have to filter all the results you get before you find a good match.

Click to locate someone by phone number

Do you wish that there was a way to locate someone when all you have is their telephone number? Well there is a way. Up until not so very long ago, locating a person by telephone number would have been very difficult unless you had access to the databases that the law enforcement agencies have access to. Not so today because now you use the power of the Internet to discover information about most people you might want to search for.

Are you wondering about all those numbers on your phone bill that you don’t recognize? Are they a sign that your spouse is cheating on you? Would you like to have an easy way to check out someone you are about to hire to do work on your home? If he gave you a phone number then you can. Even a cell phone number in some cases.

As a modern parent one of the most troubling things that you can do is go through your child’s cell phone address book. Are they all as innocent as you hope they are? Why not do some research to put your mind at rest.

You can use phone numbers to find people that you’ve lost touch with. Old college friends, neighbors and even family. Even an old number that isn’t in use any more can be a vital clue that you need to someone’s whereabouts. You can use reverse telephone directories for fun and serious research as well as combating stalkers and nuisance callers.

Using the big search engines to locate people by telephone number for free

Sometimes finding someone with their telephone number can be a simple matter of typing the number into one of the big search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN. You should try them all one by one until you get a result.

This can often be surprisingly effective, especially if the telephone number belongs to a business. A business will be only too pleased if you find them by their phone number so they often make a point of displaying it on their sites around the World Wide Web. If the number is displayed on a web site then the chances are that one or more of the search engines has it in their index.

But it isn’t just businesses that put their phone numbers on the Internet. Lots of people post them in forums and other public places on the net. The person you are looking for might have a business and has given you that number so it’s worth a try.

Individuals are more reluctant to make their phone numbers public however and most people are becoming more aware of the fact that anything you post on the Internet isn’t going to be private for very long. More and more people are very careful and protective of their phone numbers as a result.

Use a fee based reverse telephone directory – It’s more reliable than free search

If you can’t find the phone number that you’re looking for with free search engines or you want to get more information on the person who owns the phone number then you should consider using a web site that specializes in locating people and providing you with all the information on a person that you could wish for.
