Are you being harassed with continuous phone calls from withheld / unknown / private numbers missing Caller ID? As much as this seems like a super-cool & fun activity for those on the other side of the line (for example: your secret admirer, ex boyfriend, girlfriend or partner, colleagues or friends from school pooling a prank on you etc.), it is definitely not a fun ride from the victim’s point of view (ahem, you!).
Have you ever received a call from an unknown number? It's a situation that we've all faced at one time or another. The phone rings and the display shows No Caller ID.
It can be a frustrating experience, so much so that many people that I know simply refuse to answer calls unless they can clearly see who's on the other end.
If the number that keeps calling you pops up on your Caller ID, you can check its registered location, service provider and line type by doing a phone reverse lookup. To further find out to whom the number may belong, you can type it into Google, Facebook, public Yellow Pages. You can use a few private directories to carry out a mini investigation on the phone owner. Debt collectors, telemarketers and solicitors usually call from toll free numbers and they call many people - not just you, so someone somewhere has already posted information about that number. Sites such as 800notes and WhoCalled are two great complaint boards containing many land line numbers of pesky callers.
First, how do these people actually hide their phone numbers when they call you?
The answer is quite simple and it has been used for a long time, even before the age of smartphones.
Anyone can hide their number because of the No Caller ID feature. When you make this type of call, you appear as an Unknown Caller. All that it takes is entering a few digits.
Simply enter *67 before the number that you wish to call. This will automatically block your caller ID – that is, it will make it invisible to the person who is receiving the call.
The No Caller ID feature is usually used to prevent tracking. However, some misuse it for harassment and other illegal activities. That’s why you need to learn how to unmask the caller’s number.
If you get an unknown call on your office phone, pick up your phone and dial *69 right away to call the number back. Usually, this code works, and if someone answers, you can ask who you are speaking with. You have to place the *69 call right away. The callback service doesn't work if you receive another call before you enter *69. If the code doesn't work, try other codes that work the same was such as *57 and *71.
If you receive a busy signal when you call back immediately, the call was probably from a telemarketer or spammer.
Getting calls from unknown number may annoy and it would be really helpful to know who’s calling.
It’s actually easy to look up numbers and find out details about who is calling. By just typing ‘reverse cell phone lookup’ on Google you can get a list of such websites that offer this service. Some sites provide this service free of cost while some charge a nominal fee. You can compare the fees and opt a website that would be reasonable with the price.
Once you have selected the website type in the phone number. You will be provided the person’s name, street address and a link to a map showing directions. There are also options like advanced search which help you get more details or even unlisted information too. But these are paid options and would cost you.
