Today’s Amazing Systems For Tracing People

By Odesi Desko

Our world is evolving at a whooping rate.

Most individuals think that the IT world is the fastest growing sector. But it’s not true. It is actually the medical world which is seeing the biggest growth. New medication and remedies are being found at a staggering rate.

Probably the biggest discovery of all is the discovery of stem cells, but this doesn’t mean that Electronics sector has completely stalled either. There is a remarkable rise of new developments in the sector. Alas, some of these developments have been linked to controversy! A good example of this is reverse telephone number lookup. Before the digital version of the reverse phone lookup or the 411 service you had to manually lookup the phone number in a telephone directory. It made the task almost impossible to perform (especially for those who lived in highly populated areas). What was once a nearly impossible task can now be done in mere seconds. Just go to any of the web-sites that offers the service ( type in your telephone number and almost immediately you will have the information that you were looking for.

Well times have changed. Now you can look up a phone number in seconds and headache free. All you have to do is go to a page such as:, put in the phone number and hit search.

Things like surname and postal address can be easily found using this method. Some cell phone lookups can reveal even more information. If you are lucky enough to find Cell Tower triangulation search you might be able to find out the approximate location of a person. You can imagine how useful this reverse telephone number look up can be. One can protect himself effectively against prank callers and stalkers. You can even reverse lookup an organizations toll free number to find their name. If you were expecting an important telephone call and missed one, you can also look it up.

If only we all had good intentions… Bad folks can take advantage of this service as well. Some maniac can find out where you live if they have your phone number. A loan shark might get the address of a poor gambling victim. I guess you see my point.

There are many instances where this can do a substantial amount of harm. I sincerely hope that the bad guys won’t spoil it for the rest of us. Just because they decide to cross the line it doesn’t mean that others will follow their example. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s of the same opinion.
