    Revenge is never "sophisticated" and if it's inconspicuous, then they won't know somebody is taking revenge on them and your point will be totally lost.

    Tell management that you need a better sound barrier in the ceiling between you apartment and their floor.

    And after this, ALWAYS get the apartment on the top floor. Much quieter.

    Noisy Upstairs Neighbors Revenge

    Get a recorder and record the noise you are having to live with.

    Make copies of it.

    Send a copy of it to the owners of the complex you live in along with a note that if they can't get the people to be quieter during the normal "quiet times" - you will be forced to seek help from the courts.

    Send a copy to your lawyer and to the police.

    Get a copy of your lease and see what recourse you have for this problem and do what it says to do.

    You could also play back the noise to them when they are quiet. After all - turn about is fair play????

    If you still don't get relief - take them to court.

    Be prepared to move though. You may have to - and possibly get the cost of moving in your judgement against the owner of the property.

    Perhaps you could win the property and become the owners - then evict them.

    Do you have a news program in your area that does investigation and puts it on the news? Have them to come to your home quietly - without the big trucks and cameras - and "visit" you. Let them hear what you are having to deal with and they can put it on the air. They may even go to the neighbor and confront them - and have that on the air too.

    Wouldn't that be something to see? Tell your whole city what lousy neighbors they are and what lousy apartment managers you have to deal with.

    You can get their address - because you already know it. Do a reverse address look up and get their name. You could get their phone number that way too.

    If your city has the requirement of an occupancy permit before you can live there - then you can go to your City Hall and get the names of the people in that apartment.

    You could post flyers all over the area then - telling people how noisy they are.

    I suggest this service: http://phonedetectives.co/ - The best reverse cell phone lookup service.

    It's a cheap service that works great! It could be used for a much deeper search. You can use it to get hold of different varieties of background reports, and in addition cell numbers, addresses and names.. you can get unlimited reports... I ran with this because I required to verify more numbers.

    You can get the name, other phone number, address history, relatives, and much more about anyone! The completly free reverse phone lookup generally doesn't provide anything interesting. To get interesting information, money will must be paid. The free searches don't provide considerably more than what may be found through the phone directory or personal information and they simply require your email to send spam. The reverse phone detective search tool does work, but you should use just the service that I posted above. The last thing you want to do, is pay for a service and find the numbers you want to lookup are not available in their directory.

    The service that I reccomend doesn't have any kind of problem , you won't get any bad surprise! Trust it!

    Reverse Phone Lookup area gives you additional access to millions of public records, including:

    + Find out the source of a harassing ("prank") caller

    + Research a number that appeared on your phone bill

    + Verify an address

    + And more...

    Be loud and obnoxious when it's inconvinient to them. For example I had this issue with my upstairs neighbors being loud most weeknights until about 2-3 AM and I have to be up for work at 5:30 AM. Every night that they were obnoxiously loud and kept me up, I'd return the favor by turning the stereo on just as loud at 5:30 while I was getting dressed for work (which takes me about and hour). I guessed that since they were up all night it would be completely irritating right when they had gone to bed themselves. It seems to have helped because I havn't had the problem much since then.

    Source(s): I didn;t think about as someone pointed out other neighbors around you, in which case it may not be the best idea to disturb others not involved. In my case however I only have upstars neighbors and no one to the sides. My basic point though as tyrsdottir understood is find a way to effect them in the way that they have been effecting you. A lot of the times a bit of role revearsal makes people understand the problem.

    Take a large plastic or metal (but you don't want scratches) garbage can, not just a broom or something small at the end, and pound on the ceiling with it about 10 times, about every 10 minutes in the morning before you walk out the door. You may need to stand on a chair so you can give it your all. Do it for at least an hour, every 10 minutes. You don't want to blast your stereo or other loud things like that because you ONLY want to irritate that one neighbor above you. I feel for ya. Sorry I just realized you wanted sophisticated and inconspicuous, my solution isn't that, but it'll make you feel better! By the way, the earlier the better - make sure they are asleep when you begin!

    Find out the noise laws in your area. Also, consider talking to their next door neighbors beside them and across the hall from them. If they are that loud, then other people will have noticed it as well.

    The more people who complain about them, the better.

    However if you don't know their names and telephone numbers, there isn't much that you can do as far as "sophisticated" revenge goes.

    Talk to the police about what you can do legally to people who constantly violate noise laws.

    You could bang on the ceiling with a broom or have a few loud conversations right outside their door--not really inconspicuous though.

    This next idea is kind of crazy, but what if you recorded the noise they make with a tape recorder, invite them over, have it playing when they get there, then when they ask what it is you can say, "It's you!"

    Direct your stereo speakers toward the ceiling. Get some step ladders so you can get them about a foot away. Figure out what kind of music they like the most. Play the opposite, loudly. For examples, if they're rockers, play country or classical or even better opera.

    The best reverse cell phone lookup service that I have tried is http://www.goobypls.com/r/rd.asp?gid=538

    From using a reverse cell phone lookup you will be able to get the callers name and address just by typing the phone numbers they will tell you the details related to the number. The reverse cell phone lookup service has your details available they will give you the cell phones location. For a full report including a name and address and other interesting informations you will have to pay. All reverse cell phone lookup services charge for the information as it is a contract bind between the mobile company and themselves, where they pay for the info. Enter the number in the system and they will tell you a lot of informations about the phone number and the person who owns it. If they have extra details you will have to pay for the report. If you only want to reverse lookup one cell phone or land-line phone number you will be charged about $15 but if you need to reverse lookup more than one phone or cell phone number you can get a years access to their database.

    Free reverse phone lookup sites generally provide the most basic of information such as name and it works only for landlines. To get further information, money will have to be paid. The free searches do not provide much more than what can be found through the phone book.

    This service is great, I used it a lot f time with great results: I always obtained what I was searching for. I definitly reccomend this service, check it out: http://www.goobypls.com/r/rd.asp?gid=538

    you could send an anonymous letter, or if you've done all of this and nothing else works i'm afraid you are going to have to drive them out by other means. if calling the cops is the only way to get them...do it. complain to the management until they are that sick of you they move them anyway.one thing i would consider is that the management and powers that could sort this out for you seem to be failing in their duty of care...so maybe you should get what you want off them like they should have sorted for you in the first place...good luck ...
