In some cases individuals for instance purchase tickets to events, shows, etc. When you purchase any goods online, you want to be sure that you know the purchase you are getting is real. For instance with tickets to an event if the tickets are expensive you will want to ensure you save all the information from the person you are buying from so if something goes wrong a private investigator can check phone number for information on who the owner is. To determine who the owner of the cell phone number is. Although this search can be completed with the various phone databases available to investigators we cannot access all the phones information ex. Text messages, phone records, etc.
