Who is calling?

Does anyone know how I can find out who owns a phone number? I tried to google it but I get a bunch of reverse name/number sites and you have to pay. I'd pay but I don't want to end up signing up for anything or being screwed for giving my info out to some weirdo site. It's not life or death so the police are not the answer.

  • nope if you've googled it and the reverse searches aren't coming up with anything then I don't know how you could get it. or are both free reverse search resources. I definitely would not sign up for any internet service that promises this info as it probably leads to dead end.

  • Have you googles the actual number? Sometimes if it is a pharmacy or something it will just come up in a search...

  • If the phone number is unlisted, you won't come up with a name.
