I read an interesting discussion the other day. Someone had posted that they were getting harassing phone calls on their cell phone and they had the number but they did not know who it belonged to. They surprised if they could just do a reverse cell phone search on the number and get the callers info.
The person claiming said that this could not be done and that the person being harassed would have to call the police or hire a private investigator.
Sometimes it's best to simply not answer if you do not know the truth but I guess this person thought he knew the truth. The truth is that reverse cell phone searches are very real and if you choose the correct one, it will actually work for you and give you the info that you seek.
Now I'm not for vigilante justice and saying you should do a reverse phone lookup to collect the people name, address, cell provider and then go looking for them to rough them up or anything. A reverse cell phone search would have better used if you simply looked up the persons name and other info and then decided from there what to do with it.
It might wind up that the caller is someone you know who has their name blocked. It could be a wrong number who just can not seem to figure out that they are not dialing who they think they are. Either way, if the calls are coming from a stranger, you can call them back or send them a letter in the mail asking them to please stop calling your cell phone.
Chances are, that call or letter will be enough to have them simply leave you alone and you did not have to go through the time and aggravation of getting the police or a private investigator involved.
