Nothing is more annoying than getting phone calls from numbers you do not recognize. An occasional wrong number is not all that bad. What is bad is when a number appears on your Caller ID over and over but either the party does not leave a voicemail or they do and they leave a threatening-sounding message about going to jail over an unpaid debt.
You probably get calls from family and friends a lot. You may sometimes not recognize their numbers if they have recently changed phones. Sometimes, a family member needs to borrow a stranger’s cell phone to make an important call such as when their phone battery has died and they do not have a charger. There are plenty of situations where you would love to get to the bottom of who is calling you and now there is an easy way to find out.
Whocalledme.io lets you type in a phone number and find out who it is. It automatically does a reverse phone number lookup for you and reports back with important details about the caller. The database makes use of other users who have searched the same or similar phone numbers. They provide details about their experience with the caller.
For example, if you do have an outstanding credit card bill due. You haven’t fallen behind on the payments but you are late. Suddenly, you receive a call from a number that starts coming up repeatedly on your phone. No one leaves a message until several calls in. When they do, they inform you that you must call another number and pay a debt with your credit card or risk going to jail.
If you are unfamiliar with tactics like this, and they do, unfortunately, exist, you might be frightened enough to call back and give them a credit card. These are scams that prey on people who are easily scared. With Who called me you can put this number into the database and see results. These results will most likely indicate that it is a scam, do not give them money, simply hang up on them and block the number.
This can solve a lot of problems and it only takes a moment. There are times where a loved one is traveling. Say their phone died and they had to replace it on the go. You get a strange call and a message but you don’t retrieve it because you think it might be a telemarketer.
Say the call comes in again. You can put the number in the database and find that it is not a threatening number or one reported as a nuisance. You may even find it has your family member’s name associated with it.
Currently, the service is only offered in select area codes. This is a free service that is one you cannot live without with the way cell phones are now allowed to be shared with telemarketers. Keep yourself sane and safe with a reverse number lookup from Whoocaledme.io.
