Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 22, 2010
PhoneLookup.com (http://www.phonelookup.com) today announced the launch of a free service for consumers and administrative agencies looking to investigate nuisance calls or track down the owners of telephone numbers.
Traditionally, websites have offered separate services focusing either on address lookups or offering reverse phone lookups. This made it expensive and time-consuming to find details for phone numbers or people. Once the name and address was given for the number, users would then have to go to a traditional directory to cross-reference the information. Or to a people finder service to search by name.
Asked to comment on the new service, Randy Banks from PhoneLookup.com said:
" It is not just consumers who use the service. There are many situations where the need arises for a quick search to find out details about a person. When similar services were first launched they were focused on one just one kind of search. What we have done at PhoneLookup.com is to respond to consumer demand for an all-in-one search. Using the latest search technology we have built a fast, intuitive website that can be used to search by number, name or address in seconds. "
Despite the fact that consumers have more tools and legislation at their disposal, nuisance calls continue to be a major problem. The rise in the use of social networks has also seen thousands of people giving out personal information to other users, without realising how many people it is visible to. While these websites do their best to warn customers that they should never give out personal details, it is surprising just how many individuals are prepared to give away their information. As stated by Randy Banks
"The integration of technology has made information accessible to everyone, but the means of getting that information has not been as easy as it should have been. It seems obvious that if you are doing a search for a phone number, you should also be able to search for addresses or by name on the same site. Why should people pay for the information when they can get it for free at PhoneLookup.com "
There is also a positive use for this service. People are able to get in touch with friends and family they may have lost touch with years ago. People now move more frequently, change email addresses or change names when they get married. It can be difficult to track them down as not everyone is listed in the phone directories or uses a social network. Having just one piece of the puzzle - a name, address or phone number - you are able to get the rest of the necessary information to find that person.
