Trace a Phone Call

Aug 20, 2008
To legally trace a phone call is easy these days. I'll show you how on an everyday example - you are receiving scary prank calls and start to feel nervous. You probably have wondered if this was really a prank caller or if it was someone that wanted to get you hurt. If you were threatened in any way, you didn't take it ligthly. You have a right to be afraid for your loved ones and yourself.

The problem is that the police aren't able to help you, unless you are being threatened in person. It's frustrating to know only the phone number of person but not who they are. However, you can immediately take action and take measures to stop the annoying caller. Whether it's an unlisted home phone (land-line) number or a cell phone number, you don't need help from the police to trace the person behind prank calls. But when choosing a service that provides reverse phone call lookup you have to be careful that they search for information through real public records and just some glorified link directories. Many free services are offering legit personal info but honestly their databases are worth nothing. Besides that, you aren't able to trace cell phone numbers becase they are not listed in landline directories.

With all the records being available to public, you can trace a phone call all by yourself. You will need to enter the phone number and wait for the search results, that are being pulled out of the records database. You can get the number from your phone bill or the caller ID. You can ensure yourself that they are not dangerous, or get enough information for the police to search their criminal records, which are also provided. Yes, it is possible for you to find out if they have ever been involved in a crime, locally or nationally. At this point I must remind you that accessing detail telephone calls information (dialed phone numbers and received calls) from a person is considered ilegall and companies that offer this kind of service are scam or are involved in illegal actions. In any case, avoid them! Only your telephone company and government agencies have access to such information. Still, you are provided with ton of information (for example: Full Person's Name and Address, Date of Birth, Place of Birth, Age, Gender, Current and Previous Names, Properties and Ownerships, Professional Licenses and Associates List, Family and Neighbors, ...).

Next time when someone suspicious calls you, inform them that you have their name and address. Don't be afraid to say it back to them. They will probably freak out and never call you back again. However, if you feel threatened and even find out that they have a criminal arrest record, you should not answer the calls. Don't hesitate to inform the police and let them to do their job. They will consider the calls a priority and a serious threat if the person has a criminal record.
