Have you ever gone to a “free people finder” site just to be disappointed because it was not free? There are a many of “free people finders” out on the internet. The problem with most of them is that they tend to give very limited free results – and for what you really want – they charge. That can be explained.
If who you are looking for is listed in a telephone directory, and the information is up-to-date and correct, then you are likely to find a person them for free. If more digging is required, then you are likely to have to pay for the information. The information is more than likely found somewhere in free public records sources, but you are not too likely to know exactly where to look. Public records are a wonderful thing, and most are online. If you know where to start looking, you probably do not need any assistance. Then again, if you are reading this, you may need some assistance.
Free people finders are out there and they can be helpful. However, if you need fast and accurate results, you are likely to have to pay a fee. The fee all just depends on where you have to start your search. Usually you “get what you pay for” if the searches cost nearly nothing – that what you are likely to find.
The fact is data mining on the internet is not free, so you will have to pay for a service that had to pay for it, and they need to make a profit, so the charge you. Many of these services also use free public records. The difference is that they search all available online public records all at once, something that could take days or weeks to do. I know, before the days of the internet and all the people finders, it sometimes took me weeks to track down what now takes minutes to find.
Lots of things can be found out for free, but do not expect secret information for free, or information that requires some digging to be found for free. I almost forgot. Some “free” places will give you some results if you register to try for free some product – that is a scam and nothing is ever free. Those kinds of sites then give your email address out and you will open the floodgates to spam. You do not need to worry about paying for the service, as nearly all of the major people finders on the internet give a money back guarantee.
