PhoneFinder does the following:
- Confirms that the phone number submitted for the screening is still valid.
- Corrects any transposed digits in the phone number
- Returns a new (or different) phone number for the constituent(s) screened.
- Provides information for private numbers or constituents who have elected to be on Do Not Call lists.
With this information in mind, the average match rate for PhoneFinder is between 35% and 45% of the records submitted. The number of records unmatched does not mean that there is a problem with those phone numbers, but indicates that we were not able to match on the name and address, or name, address, and phone number.
Note: PO Boxes and business addresses can be searched however their match rates are typically lower than searching a physical address. This is due to the fact Constituents typically associate phone numbers with their home address.
