Reverse phone lookup - is there a good one?


When I search for the provenance of a phone number, I get a bunch of services that want my money or look shady or both. Does someone know a good one? I'm in the USA.

Gosh, it's been over 20 years since I needed reverse-lookup. I can't even remember the name of the site I used.

I did find a site that purports to rank the ones available now. https://www.techlazy.com/free-revers...okup-services/

Had to verify it's still there.

Same as frankbell.

I stopped using it because there's too many ways to spoof.

If some number calls and doesn't leave a message, Spam.

Now sometimes I get called and the caller ID says "Suspected Spam".

That's never encouraged me to answer.
