Anyone know of a legitimate reverse phone number ID lookup?

All of a sudden they are coming in hot and heavy.
All the ID sites look like they too are scams and not at all trustworthy.
Years ago there was a reverse lookup that was simple and honest, where did it go?

The local phone company will not sell IQ service to block calls. So, I found a phone that has "caller block" built in, very easy to use. But, I don't know how many more I can add to it.
I am on every "opt out" and "do not call" list I can find. They just seem to increase the calls.

    I just started not answering. It was an issue yesterday, employee called in but to my cell instead of the company lines. I have told them to just text me if they can’t get through. All those lookup sites look sketchy now and will give the number as a person or cell but they are actually a company.

    I let it all go to voice mail. The clowns never leave a message, they just move on.

    I use White Pages. It's free from the App Store. It has a phone lookup and it seems to work for me.

    Nope. The problem is, most those spam calls are spoofed numbers.
    So it usualy doesn't matter if you can look them up or not. I actually got a call once from an automated number that showed the number calling as my wife's number.
    There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Agreed. If you're looking for protection from spam callers try the app called True Caller. Not only does it let you update the list of spam callers daily or more, you can copy and add any numbers that you get calls from so that you're helping other folks update their lists. 

    Ive had a lot fewer spam calls since I downloaded the app. When you gat a call from a number on the list the app gives you a red warning sign that the caller is spamming and you can just avoid the call.

    Dear President Trump
    I would like to talk to you about spam, nuisance calls, spoofed numbers and rude scam callers with heavy accents. Do you think.........
