You will also find that phone scam is becoming more and more common. Telemarketers, debt collectors, charities, survey companies and scammers often call without leaving a message or disconnect once you answer. you can check to see if the number is a scam, and if there are other people who are the victims of harassment or attempted fraud.
I just got a call from this number. I have a silent number and I'm on the do-not-call register. The man, with a thick Indian accent told me he was from 'Windows' and that I have many problems with my computer. I asked his name, and he replied 'Jason Smith' - yeah sure. His accent was so thick I had to ask him 3 times for his name. I asked him for his phone number, and he gave this number. When he rang me, the number registered as 'Private'. I told him that my son is a manager of a company that deals with computer problems, and that I know that I have no problems with my computer. He eventually hung up, hopefully to never call again.
Sent text message telling me my AppleID was due to expire. I logged into my account separately and confirmed my security settings, then reviewed Google for instances of previous Scams. This is one of them. Do not click on any link in a text supposed to come from AppleID, or iCloud. They DO NOT send you text messages with links in them.
Harassment calls, ringing several times a week. I don't answer. Somehow this number is not going to my voicemail, as it always goes unanswered the real caller. Definitely do not answer. Do not call back numbers that you don't know, when they repeatedly call & do not leave a message. It's either a stalker or a spammer waiting to trap you.
this is a reverse number database that allows you to look up numbers and let others know your experiences with that people using that number. You can report phone fraud by letting the community and public know that this is how they tried to get a hold of you. You can find out who's been trying to reach you, even if they don't leave a message, just by looking them up. Finding out if its telemarketers, surveys, charities, or even debt collectors is as simple as looking the number up in the database and seeing if others have had contact with the person on the other end of the line. Even if you just want to check out a business by using their number, you can see what other visitors in the community have heard or dealt with in the past.
