Online People Locater Websites
A word of caution about on-line people locater websites...Most sites will charge you money in advance to display information. While these sites appear to be an easy way to get information, you may be wasting your time and money as it may not be the information you’re looking for. May sites will provide you with a multitude of "possible matches" and leave it up to you to find the person you are looking for from the list.
If you want accurate and verified information that you are authorized to share and use in legal matters, you will need a private investigator.
