Girl With a CellphoneWhen we meet a nice girl at a pub or in a club, we usually ask for her cell phone number so that we can call her the very next day and make an appointment or just text her. It’s needless to say that on many occasions the girl which we ask will give as a wrong number so to make sure she will never see or hear from us. However, it can often be difficult to determine whether the girl gave us her actual number or some fake one. Obviously it would be very stupid to ask her directly whether the number is her or not. And even if we call it the next day and nobody responds we still can’t be sure if it’s a good number or not.

I have found a very simple method which helps me in such situations. When I get back home after a party where got a girl’s cell phone number, I just look it up in a cell phone directory and check whether it belongs to the girl I met. Of course I assume that you ask her not only about her cell phone but about name as well, since it would be impossible to verify if it’s her number without knowing her name. On the other hand, when you type her phone number and find out that it belongs to some guy, you can be sure that she gave you a wrong cell number.

The single lookup is quite expensive, especially if you plan to check a few numbers a month. I personally pay for a monthly subscription which lets me execute as many searches as I want for a flat fee. Everything depends on your needs and you should always calculate which options suits you best. If you don’t get new phone numbers very often then maybe a single lookup will be ok for you, but if have more number, then you seriously ought to consider a subscription. If you worry that it’s too expensive to just verify if the girl gave the right number, you can always ask your friends and collect money for a subscription which you will share. If you manage to find 4 friends who are interested in such verification, you will divide the costs by four which will significantly lower them.

Remember to always look for a service which offers cell phone numbers and not only residential records, since such service will be useless in this case. And what is more important you can reverse land lines for free, so there is no point in paying for it.

Phone DirectoryTwenty years ago nobody would think that computers will become as popular as they are today. It was a shock to many people who though that there will be actually no use for them in our homes. After years they must have understood how wrong they used to be. Internet played a very important part in making computers more popular. Honestly I can’t imagine a computer without a connection to the internet, it would be just useless. There are a lot of services which are offered only online, which means that a pc with internet connection is absolutely required.

One of such services is a cellphone lookup which can be done only via internet. It’s a quite popular service which can give you some interesting details about a cell phone number owner, for example his name or address. However, it can work in the reversed way – you can find somebody’s cell phone number by his name. It will be a little bit more complicated since phone numbers are unique but people’s names aren’t and you will have to check a few records before you find the right one. The rules here is that the more information you know, the faster you will find the record.

Cell phone directories from time to time update their databases so to make sure that the data is still accurate. On the other hand it’s impossible to verify all the 300,000,000 records each day and thus a situation when wrong data is retrieved can occur. However, this is not a very often situation and usually if it happens, you will get your money back if you like. Of course you should always make sure before paying for service, that this will possible, since there are a few companies reported who charge you for finding a certain record but then they claim that they don’t have the record. And once you ask them to give the money back, you never hear from them again. Unfortunately, it’s quite a popular scam these days and many people have lost some bucks due to this. FTC have taken care of this issue, but there are still websites which work like this.

The easiest way to protect yourself against such rip-offs is to always read reviews and testimonials about the company on other websites. And do never believe just one review, try to find at least a few and analyze whether it was written by the company’s employee or whether it’s an honest review from a real customer.
