The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System ( NMVTIS) is the name of the latest database, created by the federal government to track the history of motor vehicles and prevent stolen vehicles to reenter the market. Currently only 36 states participate in the database. NMVTIS will be available "through third-party Web sites, which will charge a nominal fee per record search." Resourceshelf has more.
Another government site, 800Notes went live last week to help user find out who is calling behind anonymous phone numbers.
“Many phone numbers used by the telemarketing industry, collection agencies, non-profits, even your bank, not mention con-artists, are unpublished,” Julia Forte, Web site co-creator said.
“So, the idea is to let the public build a database of such phone numbers.
More details about 800Notes are available from Resourceshelf.
