How come the phone number I searched for shows up as Private/Unlisted?
In the past few years, with the rising popularity of throw away phones and privacy, it is very hard to sometimes track who the real owner of the phone is. We always query all our sources for the most up to date information, but sometimes there is no information on a phone #. If you need to get information on an unlisted/private phone #, we recommend trying a private detective to see if they can gather any information on that phone # for you.
Your Phone Number Listing is inaccurate. How can I fix it?
If you recognize a listing that is innacurate and you would like it updated but you are not the owner, please contact us and select "Innacurate phone #" and give us all the details of the innacurate listing and what the updated listing should be and will investigate it, and if verified we will update the listing ASAP.
