Phone number lookup

Been receiving weird calls on my cell...which is strange since only a very few amount of people have it but chalked it up to misdials. However someone asked for me by my actual first name instead of a shortened version and has me now a bit off guard.

Can someone see what the following is listed too? 312-805-7361?

Thanks ahead.

they're from Cook County, in the Chicago area. Oh, and if you're "looking for a good time" don't advertise you're number in phone booths and subway stations.

Neither Anywho or Google has it as a public listing.

Yup.

Verified this info myself

I could have the owners info in a few days...but that would be an ethical violation...misuse of police powers. Sorry

Is your cell number registered on the Do Not Call List?

No, but I did call back and the person said they never called for "me", to which I replied I have your number as just calling me....sounded like it was not a business type number as the person just answered 'yeah?' Are cell phones now in telemarketing lists? I do not remember ever putting it down on some form or contest etc.

Thing is my first name is not William or anything typical and most know me as a shortened version of my first name. Plus the number is only about 4 months old. That's why the weird calls maybe from an old number but this one was different.

FiveO...not "asking" for anyone to put themselves in jeapordy of their job. Just weird, since I have not done anything wrong, I think , but you never know what's up with people.

I am in absolute love with this thing. Since the day it started, I have not received a SINGLE sales call. After all this time it's nice that the government got a free service right.
