How to Trace a Fake Text Message Number
Here are a few ways to trace a fake text message number for free:
1: Google Search
This might not always work, but you can search the fake or spoofed number on google. You can also find many other search results with the same number, which means that a number is most likely fake. This is one of the easiest and fastest ways to find out if a phone number is fake. It’s also possible to use a free reverse phone lookup to find a specific number.
2: Call Back the Number
You can also call back the number you are getting messages or calls from. It isn’t likely to be a fake number if it gets busy or busy. The number is affected if they don’t answer after calling them a lot. Often, scammers don’t pick up the phone because they don’t want people to know who they are. They use voice changer apps to trouble people.
3: Using Call Tracing Apps
You can also use apps like Showcaller, TrueCaller, and its alternatives to find out if the number is real. If it’s a spam caller, it will appear in red because most people have already reported it. To block spam calls in your area, you can use Truecaller. It’s also possible to flag a call on the Truecaller app as spam or fraud if you know it’s spam or a scam.
4: Calling the Organization/Company
As long as someone is pretending to call or text from a company or government office like a bank, you can call that company’s helpline or customer service number. Most businesses don’t ask for private information over the phone or in text messages, so be careful when you give out your personal information over the phone because it can be used against you quickly. Any caller or text message number that asks for your account or card information is a scam. No bank asks for OTPs or account information over the phone.
I hope this guide on finding a fake text message number is useful. If you can’t find a fake number, the next step is to relax and block the number. These days, it can be hard to find a phone number because the person can call you using an internet call, which is also known as Voice over internet protocol (VoIP). This type of call can’t easily be traced, and a person can call you from anywhere in the world using this software.
That way, you can block them. Then, if they keep texting or calling you from different phones, you can file a complaint with the cyber authorities in your country.
