Welcome Gimmey
  • Use this form to post a new note to someone you are looking for.
  • All fields of information (except 'Last Known Country') on this form are optional. This means you can leave any field empty (blank) if you like.
  • Please take your time and make every effort to enter information as completely and as accurately as possible. This is very important. If the information is entered correctly, then when the time comes, our system can retrieve it quickly.
  • If you don't know an item, then leave it blank. If you leave the 'Last Name' field empty then anyone looking at this information will see 'Unknown' substituted for the last name.
  • Since it is strictly up to the person you are looking for, to get in touch with you, only post notes to people who you are relatively sure would be interested in getting in touch with you. This DOES NOT WORK for skip tracing, credit collection agencies or trying to find dead beats. If they don't want to respond to the note, they don't call you.
  • Here are some examples of how you might create notes, based on different circumstances and situations.
  • There are 5 parts to the below form. For maximum results, take your time to carefully complete each part as accurately as possible. After posting, if you do wish to correct the information on the form, you may do so immediately, by going back to your account page and selecting the View/Modify/Delete option at the bottom of your account page.

Part 5 - Cross Posting / Publishing

Do you wish to have this message posted to related newsgroups and listservers?

         Publish Message: Yes: No:

  2. 'Part 1 - The 'Reason' category you are looking for this person.,

  3. 'Part 2 - Person's Details (information)

  4. A Web hyper link to your contact page which you are about to create here on Who? Me?.
    (see 'Part 3' above - checked boxes).
There will be no way for people to contact you directly from the newsgroup or listserver posting. Should they wish to contact you, they will have to come to your contact page here on Who? Me? If you delete your account or the note in question, there will be no way for a person to contact you via this particular Who? Me? posting. There are some possible advantages and disadvantages in publishing the way we publish. You decide if it is right for you.

Advantages?:  From this one posting, you have a positive means to broadly publish your search information in more places on the Internet, combined with a positive means of controlling/turning off the public's ability to contact you at any point in the future. When you are done with the service just delete this note and it is over... the link from your posted note on the Internet to you is broken.

Disadvantages?:  This gives you a wider public audience and a corresponding larger number of possibley unwelcomed solicitions from people finding investigators (Free and Paid). Since your contact information is not on the actual note that we publish, people may complain about their having to click on a web link to get to your contact page here on Who? Me?, in order to contact you.

Special CAUTION - This is a public forum!

With the exception of a person's US Social Security Number posted with a note (see explanation above), it will be possible for anyone to view the information entered in any of these fields. Anyone posting a note to this system recognizes and accepts the fact that individuals, other than the intended recipient, can and most likely will view these notes.
