Australia’s Largest Skip Tracing Database

Detective Desk
 

For those in the skip tracing industry, database access can be the difference between a locate and a skip. A good database has a strong focus on both identifiable and contactable records. Full names, address, dates of birth, email addresses, license numbers, passports numbers, occupancy information, all make the difference between going through several pages of White Pages results for hours, versus instantly narrowing down your subject in seconds.

We launched Detective Desk to match our existing Reverse Australia database, which is highly focused on phone records, to our other private databases, which focus on consumer information. We combine the hundreds of millions of records we have, with advanced search features to turn hours of searching into mere seconds. Couple this with our skip tracing CRM and you have the largest and most advanced skip tracing database in the Australian market.

Here are just some of the features Detective Desk boasts:

  • Advanced name search
  • Skip tracing CRM
  • MateSpotter integration
  • Reverse address search
  • Reverse email search
  • Neighbour search
  • Reverse phone lookup
  • Couple matching
  • DOB matching
  • Postcode research
  • Validation tools
  • Staff usage monitoring
  • Group account self management
  • Record exporting

Telemarketing Fraud: How Reverse Lookup Services Protect You

In recent years, telemarketing fraud has become an increasing problem in Canada. According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, “criminals use the same techniques as legitimate companies, but hide behind the anonymity of the telephone and attempt to defraud thousands and thousands of Canadians each year.”

There are at least several hundred fraudulent telemarketing operations in North America that routinely seek to defraud consumers in Canada and the U.S. Let’s take a look at some additional facts.

Reverse Canada Infographic

Telemarketing Fraud Facts:

As a result of the telemarketing industry, there is an overall loss of $3,827,880, in addition to the average consumer loss at $1,174. According to Private Citizen, telemarketers place 148 million junk calls a day. Back in 2000, the Direct Marketing Association received a record of 3,789 telemarketing complaints in one 35-day period!

Telemarketing is a nearly $500 billion a year business, and investment scams alone amount to losses of $1 million an hour. Additionally, charities make more money from selling your name and number (aka. “sucker lists”) to other telemarketing companies than from the donations they collect from calling.

On average, only 24% of what consumers donate in response to a telemarketing sales call actually reach the intended charity.

There are a variety of payment methods that telemarketers use to profit from their scam(s). Bank debit accounts for 23% of these scams, in addition to: credit card: 21%; money order: 14%; wire: 9%; debit card: 5%; telephone bill: 2%; cashier’s check: 2%.

Initial contact is made across a multitude of communication platforms. Overall, phone contact was the highest form at 44%, along with: mail: 37%; print:15%; fax: 2%; in-person:1%; tv/radio: 1%.

20% of scam victims are 30 years old and younger. Additionally, 54% of victims were between the ages of 30–60, and 36% were 60 years and older.

Eset NOD 32 False Positive JS/Kryptik.ALB

Thanks to two concerned users (James and Dion), we were alerted to Eset NOD32 incorrectly reporting our site as having a trojan. The claimed virus is JS/Kryptik.ALB.

We’ve investigated the matter extensively and determined someone over at Eset isn’t doing their job properly. They flagging chunks of encoded javascript as being a virus.

If you are using NOD 32, we would advise you to change your virus scanner to a less ridiculous company. This one is clearly irresponsible in what they flag as a virus.
