The news has been covering the recent death of a young woman who may have met her killer through a free online classifieds service. She was robbed and killed. The police had to do a lot of digging and investigating to track down a potential suspect. But imagine how much better the situation could have been if online cell phone trackers had been used by the victim. Her life might not have been saved but the police may have found the suspect sooner and may have had valuable evidence to convict him.
When meeting someone through one of these Who Called Me from This Phone Number? ads, you may only know their phone number and maybe a first name. You’re practically anonymous. That’s a potentially dangerous situation to be in because if something happens no one is going to know much about the circumstances.
Instead, use online cell phone trackers before meeting. Find out the person’s name and address. Make a note of the information somewhere in your home and tell someone you’re close to that you are meeting this specific person, as well as where and when you are meeting. If something would happen to you, this information could speed up the investigation and lead the police to you, perhaps in time to save your life.
These trackers can also help you determine whether the person is trustworthy or not. If the name that comes up is not the name you were given, it might be time to cancel the meeting, for example. Taking precautions like this might seem ridiculous now but it’s always better to be safe not sorry.
