PostSubject: Anyone ever use whitepages.com?   Sun Jul 15, 2012 1:39 pm

I'm looking for a guy I taught guitar to many years ago and think I've located him on whitepages.com. Is this site safe to use?

The cost isn't much, just don't want to get spam or be scammed.

TIA


Cheers,

RR

You'll be spammed and paying for information you can dig up on your own eventually.

Thanks Kyle.

I just googled whitepages.com reviews and it certainly doesn't look trustworthy.

I'll continue to search some other way.


Cheers,

We use White Pages almost daily with our direct neighbor marketing. We have never had a problem. If you put in an address it will tell you all of the neighbors and the houses are also numerically marked on a google style map.

If you need anymore reassurance, you can rest easy knowing the CEO began his career in investment banking with the Goldman Sachs. lol!

From the reviews it looks like you're coerced into a subscribing for a year. All I want to do is get a one time search.

We do not use the pay portion. The free portion suits our purpose.

OK, so I didn't see any "free" portion. Can you tell me how to locate it?


TIA

Search the intro page using their fields. If there are results, they will be listed after the first box for sponsors. Then another sponsors box. Then additional suggestions which are still free. Following this will be more sponsor links. All sponsors should be in labeled frames.

Sponsors can take you much deeper with information but whitepages should give you address and phone number.

PM is on the way too you.

Forgot to mention:

If there are no results all you will get are sponsored links.

When I search for myself, it comes up pretty dry because we only use cellphones these days. I did find my address though.

Interesting. I googled free search sites but they were all actually pay sites as far as I could tell.

pm returned!

And thank you.

zabasearch.com
privateeye.com
lexisnexis.com
intellius.com
peoplefinder.com

Most will have a "free" feature.
You may get lucky with whitpages.com w/o paying. They post many addresses for free.
Most of the sites will eventually bring you back to intellius for paid searches. It all depends on how bad you want / need to find someone.

Just a quick update-

J Soshae has been quite helpful in this matter. He was able to search and identify the guy I'm looking for. I'm currently attempting to get in touch with him through the avenues he found for me.

Just want to give a public shout-out to J Soshae and his efforts on my behalf. This is a great board of brothers who are helpful in all ways.

cheers

Why not use this instead? I think it's cheaper than whitepages, although not sure how much more reliable.
