Searching by ID number is one of the simplest and most powerful ways to disambiguate your results - that is, to make sure you are looking at the right person or the right company.
- Try searching for ID numbers with and without punctuation. Cedula 1.123.1234 likely will appear as 11231234 in certain documents.
- ID numbers sometimes are mistakenly disclosed without their first or last digit, or concatenated with the preceding or following word. Wrap the number in wildcard operators to account for this. Searching *11005* will return not only 11005 but also 110058 and Passport11005.
- Numbers occasionally need translating, too. Persian numerals ۸۱۲۳۰۹۱ will not automatically match against their Arabic numeral counterparts 8123091. Be search to search both variations.
