You have hired a new private tutor for your kid. You also need to hire a baby sitter for your toddler. But you are worried. How do you verify whether he is the right person or not? How do you know whether he has a criminal past or sex related cases against him/her or not? It is definitely not practical to go to a detective agency every time you think of hiring a teacher or a baby sitter! The very thought of it is so outrageous, but have you ever paused to wonder it may be after all necessary? Anyway, you can relax. Thanks to the technological advancement or may we say the internet, you can do a background check of anyone from your PC, provided you have his/her cell or phone number.
With a few clicks of the mouse and for free or for a few dollars you can gather all the private information available in the public records! It is the ultimate search you can do from the comfort of your place. You may look up all the public documents, various criminal and adoption records, hidden assets and many more details. There is a complete life history of the person lying threadbare on the net. It is actually a little scary also.
Who knows someone may be looking up your records at this very moment! You may even make the search with the help of cell numbers disconnected 10 years ago. It is very helpful if you are trying to find the current address of a long lost friend. In case of landline numbers they may even provide you with information with numbers as old as 20 years! It has particularly helped the telemarketers immensely.
They collect the numbers left by you at different places, say forms, coupons, feedback forms and so on. They run a data check and prepare a target list for telemarketing purposes. Next thing you know is you are flooded with phone calls offering you soft loans, credit cards and so on. (Now you know the answer to the question which has always perplexed you, that from where do the telemarketers get your phone number!) Next time when you are filling up a form or entering a contest, just remember, you are not just entering a cell number, you are entering a host of information with it. Do pause and think whether you really want strangers to know that you were caught eve teasing a girl when you were in college! Thus there are both positive and negative sides of this facility. Though in spite of knowing its negative aspects we can't really stop using cell phones or stop giving out our numbers to others we should at least to avoid giving out our numbers to strangers.
Let us all accept is as a part of new technology and adjust with it. Whatever you may say, the positive attributes far outweigh the negatives and that should be reason enough for us not to throw away our cell phones. So in case you aren't a god fearing person, better become a reverse search phone number fearing person, and start taking care of your actions!.
