Reverse Lookup Finds Local Creep

One resident of a college apartment building put the kibosh on a local creep who was calling up college girls and saying disgusting things on the phone. “I don’t even want to repeat what he said to me, it was so, so gross,” said Lindsey, who lives in the apartment building. She said she and some of the other girls in the building noticed a guy sitting out in front of the building a lot. But Lindsey said she just thought he was a new neighbor or something.

Soon after she saw him, she started getting phone calls. Heavy breathing and sexual calls. She said she was horrified. She said one of her neighbors mentioned she had gotten calls too.

“We had no idea what was going on, or how whoever was calling had gotten our number,” said Lindsey.

She and her neighbor started looking at the buzzer, and sure enough, when someone was buzzed, it showed the phone number it was dialing. And since it dialed directly to the residents’ cell phones, whoever was calling could call them whenever he wanted.

Another neighbor, Ted, overheard the girls talking about the phone calls. He said he had an idea immediately.

“I said we should use a reverse cell phone finder to find the weirdo,” said Ted.

He went online and punched in the number, and sure enough it was registered to a halfway house down the block. Ted and the girls called the halfway house and explained the situation, they never saw the guy again and the girls said the phone calls stopped.

The reverse phone number lookup they used was once only available to law enforcement officers and private investigators. But the kids used it to solve their problems quick without having to involve the police.
