How to Search a Unknown Number

Ever had an unidentified number call your home or cell number and do not have a clue who it is? Instead of answering the phone to find who is calling, there are different websites where you can do your own investigation and find who is the owner or company who dialed you and where he is located.

...
You can find out the identify of an unknown phone number by using a reverse phone number look-up.

Step

Navigate to 800 Notes (800notes.com) to track down unknown calls. Type in the area code and seven digits. Most of the time you will get some information about the questionable number. Other people phoned by the same person reveal whether the person who phoned is a debt collector, telemarketer or survey company.

Step

Navigate to Who Called Us (whocalled.us). Type the phone number you are looking for more details about it. Like 800 Notes, you will probably get a little background about the caller from other users. A map is also available, where you can locate where the last 100 unlisted numbers in the United States are from.

Step

Trace the number at WhoCallsMe (whocallsme.com). If there is no record on the phone number, your can enter it among the list of other unknown phone numbers. More likely, someone will do a research and you'll eventually find out the identity of the person behind the number.
