Whether it’s an old military buddy, childhood friend, or distant relative, there are times when you lose touch with someone who you later want to get in contact with. You may have an old address or other outdated contact information, but determining how to find someone’s current address can be a challenge – even with all the power of Google at your disposal.
Likewise, social media – such as Facebook – can sometimes help, but not everyone is on Facebook or makes their profile public.
Fortunately, there is one sure-fire quick, inexpensive way you can find almost anyone online – instantly. And all you need to get started is a name and last known state.
People finder sites exist to provide current address, phone and other contact information. By entering just a full name and last-known state, people finder companies will connect the dots among the billions of records they store to provide you with the results you’re looking for. Even if a person hasn’t lived in a particular state for decades – or even if they’ve moved multiple times since they last lived at the address you know – people finder sites can help you to locate them instantly. You’ll receive instant results with free preview information – including their age and other relatives – so you can be confident when you’ve found the right person. You can even start a search right here:
In addition to all their current contact information, you’ll also receive other public records information, such as marriage, divorce and foreclosure records. You’ll also receive criminal records – all of which may help you determine which subjects to avoid if you get in touch (or if you want to get in touch at all!). And unlike many social media sites, your search is completely anonymous – the person you’re looking for has no way to check if someone’s looking for them (or who’s looking for them).
One important point to note is that you CANNOT use these sites for the purpose of harassing or stalking anyone; this is a violation of the terms of service for the people finder sites and – more importantly ILLEGAL. It is also illegal to use the information you find in the searches for any official purposes as defined by the Fair Credit Reporting act, which includes for employment, credit or housing purposes (among others).
So, assuming you’re just trying to find someone’s address or other contact information for non-nefarious purposes, a people finder site is the fast, easy way you’re looking for.
