In an era where people are losing the battle against identify theft and struggling to keep sex offenders and other predators at bay, I think that our website will be instrumental in helping consumers keep their families safe and regain peace of mind.
Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) July 3, 2009
In recent years, cell phone and Internet usage among America's children has exploded, giving criminals more access to young victims, and forcing parents to become more aware of who their children communicate with on a daily basis. To help parents monitor children's Internet and phone communications with reverse look up services, Jim Finks, a father of two, has launched the Reverse Lookup Resource, an easy-to-navigate guide to a number of helpful research services. The site provides recommendations to the best reverse phone number lookup services, reverse email finders, online child monitoring software providers and other services that can effectively help keep American households safe and secure.
"As the use of technology becomes even more prevalent in our society, many Americans have relied on federal and state officials to enforce certain laws and guidelines to mandate responsible use of the Internet, cellular phones, other communication technologies, and the safety of our children," said Jim Finks. "Unfortunately, our governments are not always as diligent as we would expect them to be, especially in adhering to legislation such as the Adam Walsh Act and other measures put in place to keep our kids safe. Therefore, as parents, we have to be exceedingly diligent when it comes to protecting our children, and part of that responsibility includes actively monitoring who our children communicate with."
By July 2009, all states should have been in compliance with new standards under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, which created a national standard in classification and reporting requirements for those convicted of a sexual offenses. According to recent reports, most states have not complied and many are requesting extensions. These reports are particularly alarming as sexual predators and other criminals are reaching out to children via telephone, text messages and email in record numbers.
"Criminals are well aware of the fact that today's children use technology far more than any previous generation, and they are using this knowledge to prey on them," said Finks. "Just last month, a 15-year-old girl in Georgia informed her mother that she had been receiving sexual images on her cell phone from a sexual predator. These types of illicit communications are becoming a common occurrence throughout the United States."
Fortunately, the Georgia teen reported the images to her mother, who then alerted the authorities. But not all children are as wise or forthcoming. To help further protect children against these types of criminal offenses, parents can use Reverse Lookup Resource to trace the identities of individuals who communicate with their children to ensure that they are not being lured by adults who seek to exploit them. The site also provides detailed information on the Adam Walsh Act, a detailed review of Net Nanny, which was online child monitoring software featured recently on The Oprah Show, and other helpful resources related to keeping children safe.
In addition to using Reverse Lookup Resource to help ensure the safety of children, the resources on the site can help consumers effectively identify the origin of harassing phone calls, screen calls, track missed calls and organize and update address books. The site features a comprehensive database of reverse telephone look up services, reverse cellular phone look up services, reverse address searches, reverse email finders and other services. Several articles are also available on the site to help consumers best utilize available resources online.
"Reverse Lookup Resource is designed to help give you more control over who's attempting to contact you and others in your family," said Finks. "In an era where people are losing the battle against identify theft and struggling to keep sex offenders and other predators at bay, I think that our website will be instrumental in helping consumers keep their families safe and regain peace of mind."
