The Reverse Phone (News - Alert) Detective, according to its company officials, is “unconventional and advanced software” that caters to the needs of those who are subjected to such irresponsible situations as “nuisance callers specially the telemarketing calls that you get throughout the day.”

The Reverse Phone Detective, restricted to the U.S audience only, works both on cellular and land numbers. As company officials explain, “the software uses the techniques of geographical location finder in its Caller ID detection software and works extremely well to unravel the intricate data of a caller. The data so unveiled consists of fields such as identity, location, whether it’s a land or cellular connection, details of family members, immediate neighbors and more.”

“Details of family members?” Goodness, do we really want to escalate to that level? “Okay, look, buddy, you call me to sell magazines one more time and I swear I’ll go by your mother... let’s see, Gladys, isn’t it? Yeah. Gladys. I’ll go by Gladys’s house and... and... steal all her mah jongg tiles. Hey I know how to play hardball, pal, so I don’t think I’ll be getting any more of your calls, capish?”

The software is simple to use, company officials say, and “strives to produce the data that is reliable and correct. If at any time the system fails to present a data then the consumer is entitled to induce into complete money back offer.” And that’s just how the company worded it so that’s just how we quoted it. Caveat emptor.

The system, company officials say, “also ensures that the privacy and secrecy of the data about a number is maintained at all times.” Such as when you’re receiving it, presumably. “Hence it requests its users to submit the registration form which is absolutely free of cost. There are essentially no hassles at all and the system is simple to use and easy to understand as well.”

Company officials claim a database of over 210 million numbers “and still counting. Each day loads of new entries are supplied to the database.”

Better go to the website and check it out if this sounds like something you’re interested in, no doubt there’s fine print and terms and conditions and qualifiers enough to choke a horse. Frankly we’re not huge fans of this sort of product, as you might have guessed, we feel a simple placement on the DNC registry and reporting infractions takes care of most problems. Escalating beyond that, well, you have to be getting a garbage boatload of unwanted calls.
