FAQ

  • Q?

    Why should I use your service when there are other websites claiming they can offer instant results and free license plate searches?


  • A.
    If you utilize resources that promise "immediate" or "free" license plate results, there’s no guarantee that you will get accurate information. DMV records are only accessible to law enforcement and licensed investigators. Don’t be fooled by false promises of “instant results”. Many of these companies scan the web and retrieve out of date public information, whereas licensed investigators search the records by hand, utilizing a variety of non-public databases. 
    Some of these websites even openly admit that their data is outdated. For example, if you look at Everify.com, their terms and conditions indicate “You agree and understand that the availability of a search report does not necessarily mean that the report will yield correct results, relevant results, or any results at all.”
    Many of these websites prey on the fact that consumers know very little information about the license plate industry and are hoping that you won't know the difference.
  • Q?

    I don’t remember my SSN.  Can you find my own Social Security Number?

    No. This is not a permissible purpose.  Additionally, we cannot find a SSN of a minor child. You will need to contact the Social Security Administration.
  • Q?

    What information will I get if I run this search?


  • A.
    If you use a legitimate and credible resource, you’ll get details about the vehicle, including make, model, and year, as well as the vehicle registrant, their address (with the exception of California), and if there are any lienholders attached to the vehicle.
  • Q?

    Will my search by private/confidential?


  • A.
    Yes, it is. Our system is secure and the subject of the search will never know that their social is being requested.
  • Q?

    Can I legally find a Social Security Number?

  • Q?

    Can you do a reverse phone lookup on any phone number?


  • A.
    We can uncover information for most U.S. 10-digit landlines and cell phone numbers.
    NOTE: For pre-paid cell phone lookups, names and addresses are only available some of the time – depending on whether or not the owner of the phone has actually registered it.  Therefore, for pre-paid numbers, we only guarantee to provide either the subscribers name or the subscribers address. (Whatever is registered with the carrier at time of purchase)  We will provide both, if available.
  • Q?

    How reliable are the results of a reverse phone number lookup?


  • A.
    As long as the information submitted is valid, we guarantee to find the accurate information associated with the phone number. Plus, we also offer a No Hit-No Fee guarantee, which states that we will refund the $45 service cost if we cannot secure the current name and address for your phone number search.
  • Q?

    Other websites are promising to do a reverse phone lookup with “instant results”.  Can you offer that, too?


  • A.
    There is no such thing as an “instant result” to obtain current records. If you are lucky enough to need information on a phone number that is listed in the white pages directories, you can get a name and address very quickly.  However, most of the websites that promise “instant results” only have access to the white page directories – and those directories may be of no use to you.  After all, if the phone number that you need to lookup isn’t listed in the white pages – which an increasing number of landlines and all cell phone numbers are not – those websites will not be able to help you. Luckily, when you work with us, you are working with licensed private investigators who have access to information that most people don’t – including information that the “instant result” websites don’t have.  We have contacts with most phone carriers, so even if the phone number that you need to search is maintained by an individual phone carrier, we can usually get the contact records for you.
    If we cannot secure the current name and address for your phone number search, we will refund your entire search fee.

  • Q?

    What about those free phone number lookup websites? How do they rate?


  • A.
    Studies have shown that free lookup sites are 34% accurate in returning the current subscriber of a phone number. This can occur if the subscriber has had the same number for a long time and/or has used the number in direct marketing and credit applications.  By all means, try them first.  You may get lucky.
  • Q?

    Is this information accurate and up to date?


  • A.
    Licensed investigators have access to non-governmental and governmental information (such as DMW records).

    However, the recency of the governmental data differs from state to state. The good news is that as licensed investigators, we have access to a variety of non-governmental sources that will aid in our investigation. The benefit to utilizing a licensed investigator, is that we have access to databases that non-licensed companies do not. Some states only provide governmental information up to a specified date, which is why it is key for you to review our "Coverage Areas" feature on the corresponding service page, prior to purchasing. The "Coverage Areas" page will provide specific information on how often the governmental and non-governmental data is updated in our database.

    Is it legal to order a license plate search?


  • A.

  • Q?
