Does anyone remember the name of the service where you could SMS someone's name and area of residence to learn more about them?


I told my friend about it and can't remember the name now.


Or does anyone know the number and I can search him!

I remember the adds on the radio a couple of years ago, from what I recalled they scrapped facebook/bebo etc for the information. So if you were easily found on the internet, then it was fairly accurate, but if you did not exist online, then it came up with complete rubbish.

It was scarily accurate.

I "borrowed" someone's phone at a function we were at, and we did a test with someone else in the room.  All of the data that came back was correct.

I tried using it a few weeks ago didn't get a text back. It did give us some good information on some people though but at times it was wrong completely
