Suspicious Phone Number Lookup

Who is this number registered to

One thing that pretty much everyone nowadays has in common are calls or text messages from suspicious phone numbers. With the amount of scams and spam online, it’s always good to be cautious before answering the call. Here on shortcodes.org we offer a phone number search which you can easily use by entering any phone number into the search bar at the top of your screen. If you are here to learn more about suspicious phone numbers then feel free to read on.

Recently it was found that Equifax, one of the three major credit reporting agencies in the United States, had a massive data breach. This breach affected nearly 143 million consumers. The hackers accessed social security numbers, birthdays, addresses, and even driver license numbers. Yikes, not only is this scary for a variety of security reasons, but this opens up endless consumers to having their personal information sold to outside sources.

Telephone Scams

Telephone scammers will attempt to trick you out of money by getting access to your personal information. Phone Scams often robocalls, from real people, or via text messages. The callers will lie through their teeth to get you to buy products, “invest your money”, or receive “free trials” of various products.  Another common tactic of scammers is to offer you money or threaten jail time or lawsuits if you don’t pay.

Report Phone Scams

Reporting phone scams to federal agencies can help for them to collect evidence for potential lawsuits, but these federal agencies do not investigate individual cases. At shortcodes.org, we are the largest phone number reverse look up built by people like YOU, our users. By sharing suspicious phone numbers, text messages, and phone calls that we receive, we are building a public phone number directory that no other service can offer.

Should I Answer This Call?

If you have already answered the call, remember that you are in control and can hang up on suspicious phone calls at any time. You should never feel pressured to take action on anything the caller offers or tries to sell you. If a caller asks if you can hear them, do not answer them as this tactic is often used to record your response of “yes” as proof that you authorized a credit card charge. Never give out credit card, bank information, or any other personal identifying information to a caller that you do not know and trust.

It’s important to practice safe strategies in order to keep your personal information from scam callers. Remember that suspicious phone numbers may call or send text messages so be weary if you receive either from a phone number that you don’t recognize. The next time you are unsure and find yourself wondering “who is this calling me”, head on over to our website and perform a phone number lookup search to find out who is behind that number.
