Question

Finding the identity of an "unavailable call"

is it possible to find the true caller's numbers if it shows up as "unavailable" on my screen? If I get my records will it still say unavailable? If so, is it at all technically possible for law enforcement or anybody else to get that number?

I think you really wanted to ask if YOU could get that info.

Well, so far not really. That's why I use Nomorobo ( watch http://www.cnet.com/videos/how-to-stop-robocalls/ ).

As far as your original question goes, yes, given the warrants and more systems in the USA, there is such systems. But these are not open to your use.

My best advice.

Get on Nomorobo and block, don't answer such calls. Here I now longer get them.

Let me get this straight...

In reply to: My best advice.

I can get a company like trapcall to do this quickly and legally for a few bucks if I forward the call while it is ringing, but if I don't catch it in time the number becomes harder to get at than Fort Knox?

I've caught spammers making that claim.

In reply to: Let me get this straight...

If you believe it's the answer, pay them and find out. I will not start another discussion for trapcall spammers.
