The information presented on this web site is provided by Docusearch Investigations, a fully licensed and insured private investigation firm. It is intended to educate consumers on how to quickly identify scam web sites offering reverse phone lookups. Even if you choose another firm, please take 3 minutes to review this information. When searching online for companies who perform phone lookups, always follow these three common sense rules. Doing so may save you hundreds of dollars and hours of valuable time:

Common Sense Rule #1:

Stay clear from any website that doesn’t publish their contact telephone number.
Most of these scam sites appear overnight and aren’t even real businesses, rather affiliate fronts for subscription software. Look for their phone number. If you don’t have the ability to speak with a live person, it is most certainly a sham.

Common Sense Rule #2:

There is no such thing as an instant phone number lookup.
Current phone number records are maintained only by individual telephone carriers. Only listed phone numbers are published. Not even law enforcement agencies have “instant” access. Any web site offering instant results can only return outdated database information and is a scam.

Common Sense Rule #3:

Only buy from a reputable state licensed, insured investigative firm.
Just as you wouldn’t hire an unlicensed, uninsured contractor, providers of information are no different. State licensed investigators answer to governmental agencies and are bonded and/or insured. They are much less likely to perpetrate a scam. They also have access to information sources that others don’t.

Following these three simple rules should keep you safe.  For further information about reverse phone lookups, including the types of people who claim to provide them, please see the Related Articles section on the right side of this page.
