Reverse Phone Lookup Could Have Saved the Victims of the CraigsList Killer

It never takes too long before another Craigslist-related incident appears in the news and holds our attention for a while. The minute I turned on the TV this morning, there was the story on CNN about women murdered by some freak who responded to their Craigslist ads. Three people from Boston area were killed so far. They all advertised erotic and massage services. According to the last update I heard, the killer, a 22-year-old student at Boston University, has just been arrested.

Now - how many times have I told you people to investigate your potential business deals or dates, or whatever it is you want to call them, prior to telling them where you live? It's fast and easy, and trust me, your life is worth the small fee you may end up paying for some priceless information.

Haven't I told you to have them call your phone and immediately check out the number that shows up on your Caller ID via a reverse phone lookup? First find out more about this person by looking up their public records and making sure the individual is not an axe murderer, and THEN let them come to your private dwelling.

But no, you didn't listen, and now some more of you are dead. You just can't tell who is a good person and who is a psycho, so you must take protective steps, whether you like it or not. It's either run a reverse phone lookup or risk ending up dead.
