How Knowing Phone number details Can Save You From Spam Phone Calls And Scams

Nov 22nd 2015 at 11:57 PM

With the growth of online frauds and scams, there is a fear in every person who is receiving calls from unknown numbers. The spam phone numbers are so much sophisticated these days that they look much friendly and tempt a person to pick the calls. People are receiving thousands of phone calls of such type everyday in the United States alone and so is the situation in all parts of the world. Most of the times, these phone calls originate from softwares and it becomes really difficult to source out ‘Who called me’.

The problems faced by unknown phone calls:

Let’s take an example of such frauds. One morning you received a phone call from an unknown number and the call gets disconnected before you reach your phone. You checked the number and when you called the number back and the call got connected, but without any response. You tried for some time, but ultimately hung-up. And, when you checked your phone bill, your account has been charged abruptly for those calls from spam phone numbers. You lost a huge sum of money on those calls without knowing who the caller was. You tried for the phone number details but you could not get anything appeasing.

For another example, you received an anonymous phone call from some person identifying him to be representative of your bank. He tells you that your credit card has been hacked and in order to verify your ownership of the card, he will ask details such as your credit card number, security pass codes and transaction ID. Most of us fearing the loss of a stolen Credit Card will give the detailed information to the caller. Within minutes your credit card will be loaded with huge amount of spending from such spam.

Similar type of fraud is happening over emails as well, where people get emails from pseudo government organization names and get stuck with monetary loss.

What is the solution?

Although there is a massive campaign going on from the banks and other government organizations to stop such spam, still it’s not possible to stop these completely. All you may need is to identify such calls with phone number details from a reputed directory like United States phone directory or some other.  Here are a few other solutions to identify any unknown number:

· You may need to take help of online portals (reputed one, of course!) for phone number review and know the details of call type and caller location. Although there are a number of portals which can offer you detailed information about any phone number, it’s still not in the reach of everyone to know about ‘Who called me’.

· There are smartphone applications like ‘TrueCaller’, which offers you a step of relief by providing nearly possible phone number details. But it is still a matter of worry to scan through United States phone directory to scan for the contact and other details of any unknown phone call.

· There are dedicated websites, which take reference from United States phone directory to offer you the details about the nature of caller.

With such phone number review services, you can possibly avoid many anonymous phone calls and save yourself from falling prey to the online scammers.
