Learn from the personal experiences of other consumers as well as communicate your complaint to potentially thousands of other consumers
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) June 29, 2010
Numberinvestigator.com today announced that due to the high volume of consumer complaints reported on its site regarding potential telemarketing fraud and harassing phone calls, it has enhanced its reverse phone lookup service with a dynamic heat map that helps users identify the area codes that have the most reports of potential fraud.
Most every consumer experiences unwanted calls on their phones. Some can be attributed to wrong numbers but there are a lot of different kinds of unwanted calls that can be truly annoying such as telemarketers and prank callers. Numberinvestigator.com is a reverse phone lookup site and phone number consumer complaint service that makes it easier for consumers to accurately find callers identities, widely communicate complaints and read others complaints about harassing phone calls and potential telemarketing fraud.
Until recently, most users could only complain to friends or file a complaint with various government organizations, such as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). These organizations don’t typically reveal complaint information to the public and rarely with any significant detail. With this information, the consumer may be able to find out enough about their unwanted calls without having to pursue any additional action simply by using some of the information learned from finding callers’ identities and reading other people’s complaints and comments.
Numberinvestigator.com is one of the few consumer advocate sites that goes one step further and reports valid phone number complaints to organizations that have the ability to investigate and take action. Numberinvestigator.com gives consumers the collective power to not only report potential fraud to each other, but bind together to take action to eliminate these phone callers altogether.
Numberinvestigator.com is a leading provider of reverse phone number lookup services that enable consumers to simply search a number, including cell numbers (where available), landline numbers and VoIP to accurately find the owner of that number. Now you can be assured that if you don’t recognize a number or if you miss a call from a person that doesn’t leave a message, you can use this service to find out if the number is from a business associate, bill collector, or just a wrong number. Reverse phone lookup services can be easier to use than traditional white pages people searches because phone numbers are more easily linked with specific people helping to get you to the right person faster.
It is important as consumers to learn how to recognize and report telephone fraud to help stop some scams. Organizations to contact:
- Contact a consumer advocacy group like the Better Business Bureau, which seeks to resolve complaints on behalf of consumers.
- Look up the Attorney General’s office for the state in which the business is based: http://www.naag.org.
- Contact the Federal Trade Commission at ftc.gov/phonefraud.
Of course, if you put your number on the National Do Not Call Registry, you can reduce the number of unwanted telemarketing calls you get.
