Hey – call me a geek if you want, but since I was young I have been fascinated by spy tools.  Back in the day I was a huge detective movie fan and was frequently buying different spy gadgets.  Ok, Ok – I’m a geek!

Ok, so today I don’t read Sherlock Holmes anymore, but I still am fascinated by a few of the tools that are now available.  And instead of ordering fancy gadgets from comic books, I now go online to check out detective tricks.

The internet now makes it possible to do investigations on just about anybody just by typing a few letters.  Let’s have a look at two of the detective tools I use a bunch.

You might have heard of a reverse cell phone lookup.  This type of search lets you punch in a telephone number and then uncover exactly who is the owner of the phone.  Just by typing in the phone number you can find out someone’s full name, complete address plus all types of other personal details.

You’ll be able to use this trick quite often.  There might be times when I don’t recognize a number that keeps showing up on my call display or I have even received texts that I didn’t know where they were coming from.

The next one I use is an online criminal background check.  You can find out lots of information on anyone just by typing in their name at a background search website.  I like that these searches are instant and display to you the individual’s full criminal history (if any), marriage records, employment records and a whole bunch of other information.

These little tricks make me feel like a detective right from home.  It’s really inexpensive to use either of them and they are useful in all sorts of circumstances.  Enjoy!
