Are you tired of answering calls from unknown callers and instantly regretting it? Whether the call is from a telemarketer, scammer, ex-lover, stalker, or whatever the case, getting calls from unfamiliar phone numbers can be stressful.
And REALLY, REALLY annoying.
I’m sure part of you doesn’t want to answer the call or call back if you missed it. But what if the call was actually important? Perhaps from a long-lost friend who lost touch or even a prospective business partner. You don’t want to miss an important call but also don’t want to answer one that could be stressful or cost you.
If you are facing this dilemma, there are a few options:
Don’t answer the call and hope that they leave a voicemail if it is important
Answer the call and risk dealing with an unwanted and perhaps dangerous caller
Don’t answer the phone and lookup the phone number to verify it’s owner
It’s understandable that you are afraid to answer calls from people who aren’t stored in your contact list as there is a definite risk of answering calls from unfamiliar phone numbers. However, it’s also understandable that you don’t want to miss out on a possibly urgent phone call.
My advice to you when you are put in such a situation is to perform a reverse phone lookup and call the person back if they are someone you would like to chat with. By looking up a phone number, you can avoid answering a phone call from a risky caller. You can also avoid callers who leave dishonest voicemails.
It’s easier to find out the owner of a phone number than you think!
The top 3 ways to find out who is calling you
Looking up a phone number is more straightforward than the vast majority think.
Method #1- Google
You can definitely start by searching the phone number in question on Google, but most of the time, you won’t find any results. However, a Google search CAN work in locating a phone number in the following scenarios:
Simply go to Google, type the phone number, and view the results (if there are any). You will definitely have more luck locating the owner of the phone number if the number in question is a business line. Most businesses create Google My Business profiles with their contact information- including their phone number.
Method #2- Facebook
If Google doesn’t work, you can also login to Facebook (if you have an account).
You can actually use Facebook’s search bar to see if the owner of the phone number has their phone number linked to their Facebook account page. If they have linked their phone number, their Facebook profile will appear in the results.
A phone number lookup via Facebook will also share results of any public comments or posts that share the phone number. Perhaps someone else is receiving calls from the same phone number and posted about it. Or maybe someone has shared their own phone number for a multitude of reasons.
While you are unlikely to find any results using Facebook’s search bar, it is worth a few seconds to try as long as you already have an account.
