Locate People service anyone ?

Hi all. I have finally decided to register in this forum and ask whether any of you guys can locate people for me after i read a while ago a thread where a bloke managed to rip others off and there was this chap who were able to search the riper whereabout.

My case this time is similar i believe, 2 people run away with my money (total sum is over 500 quid) in different occasion. I am now planning to proceed to legal step through HMCS but i would need these b45t4rd's home address. The first person should be quite easy as i have the first+last name+cellphone number, but the second on is a bit tricky as i only have first name and a land line number (if only reverse phone lookup is a legal stuff in UK, i would have been able to spot this character ages ago). Both have unique name if that can makes a different.

So, i hope i am posting in the right sub, and hope one of you lads can help me out.

Welcome to HUKD :-D
You mentioned 'cellphone', I'm guessing you aren't in the UK?
Have you tried BT or Yell.com?

Hi dino, i am in UK, west yorkshire to be more precised. Yes, i tried BT and Yell but obviously they dont do reverse (do they?). I am thinking to use that "locate mobile phone starting from 16p" thingy but i suspect the result would only be something as "300 yards from A street" instead of full address. I might try to dig more on BT/Yell website, but im a bit sceptic on them tbh. Thanks anyway.

juliet_bravo
Thanks, i know these services which will be my last resort. But, i am thinking to ask any of you, someone who willing to do a bit off the book if you know what i mean.

Hi speedy,
I'm unsure how we can help other than suggest 'sites' to look on.
Are you saying you have the Landline number? Could you phone up that number and 'blag' it? Say you are Yorkshire Water (or whoever) and you want to speak to Mr Smith (or whoever), when the person says Mr Smith does not live here, say "I'm sorry, who am I speaking to so I can amend our records". Then search that name on BT.
Is this to do with ebay or Paypal?

Yes, i have his landline for the person number 1, and have the cellphone for the person number 2. But you know these sort of character, once they got involved into trouble they become hyper-paranoid i.e suspect every unknown number and prefer not to answer it which obviously i have tried it loads of time. I wish it could be that simple so i can blag it just like your suggestion, but it didnt work.

No it is not to do with Paypal/Ebay, the first pr1*k run away after he paid one third of the agreed refund money, and the other just completely not paying at all of the service i did for her and instead trying to be a smart arse by giving excuses before finally ignoring me.

All i need is their addresses so i can send a bunch of thugs with baseball bats..!!

Please no baseball bats :o

The site I've used is & is free. Use find people & find business searches on right hand side.

It cross refs various sources eg electoral roll, directory enquires etc. Hope it helps.

That site stopped 'working' late last year.:-( :-( :-(

Just looked myself up (& very scary it was too :giggle: ) & it gave me the info no probs (I use firefox). Used it quite a few time this year as well, so still working.

Do you have no script or something running which may be blocking it ? The web address is http://www.b4usearch.com so did the link you used have a slightly different address (eg .co.uk) ? Have another go :thumbsup:

I use to use it all the time, I added it to my ebay help thread. I have not been able to get any results for months:-

Site upgrade in progresshttp://www.b4usearch.com/images/icons/house.gifWe are currently updating the Electoral Roll to the 2006/2007 version.
Here are some sites that also offer Electoral Roll searches.

dinosteveus & sigma

Thanks for you lot. I tried the website and as dino mentioned, i've got this error thingy "Site upgrade in progressWe are currently updating the Electoral Roll to the 2006/2007 version...." which appeared (unfortunately) for the closest name of the guy i after (this person i only know his First name, which is actually quite unique). So basically i'm f3cked. I do have a thought to use those Locate People services out there, but since i only know his first name, the replies that i got from them were not that good. Now appart from the first name, i also know his email address (which is a paid email address not like yahoo, hotmail and stuff), and landline number. With all those info i do feel very close to find him but yet still so far. Now the most possible way to track him down is by breaking into his email address or find someone who work on BT to do the reverse landline look up for me, afterall this guy is a crook. I really dont mind to pay for such service if it gives me certain result so i can carry on doing my legal procedure rather than baseball bat vandalism action. Any more suggestion guys?

Looked a bit more & see what you mean. You can still search for data, especially for companies, but people searches are now limited to directory enquiries. Think they must have taken out the electoral roll bit because they were legal problems as they were still giving out peoples old data who had opted out on their most recent electoral roll forms, & they was some problem with that (think I read about it on MSE). Okay if they are listed in directory enquiries, so worth a look, but you're right, not as good as a few months back. Dinosteveus to the rescue again :lol:


The last full electoral register to which any of the 'people search' engines have access is 2000. This is because a local authority was successfully taken to court by a litigant using the data protection act over the selling of electoral rolls. So nowadays you can opt out of the publicly available electoral register through a tick box on your annual form. It is estimated that 70% of people do this. The local authorities still produce abridged registers of those people who do not opt out and these are bought by the people search sites. So, the sites are usually:
Last full electoral register
Abridged registers from 2001
Directors of limited companies (this is publically available info)
Directory enquiries

If you want to see the full electoral register you have to visit the appropriate local authority electoral registration dept. Thats the only full copy apart from one that is deposited in the British Library. These registers are in street order so its a lot of work trying to track someone down even if you know which village/town they live in. And impossible if you don't.

If you are still looking here are a few tips. You can usually work out the area someone lives in from the landline number, the STD code gives the general area and the next two or three numbers give a more localised area. Use google to put in similar numbers to find nearby addresses. You might have to make many searches before you strike lucky. Then either go to the local library in the area you have found and ask to see the electoral register - again a long job. I guess you've already tried 192 dot com. If that fails, see if you can find someone who has an old Infodisk Professional Version - 1998 or 1999 version. I think this has the ability to use reverse look up on phone numbers. If that fails or you can't find one, get hold of a local phone book and ring people with the same surname who live close by - they may be relatives. Ring and say you've lost contact with (first name) can they help? You might be lucky.
