Have you answered a call from a number with the same area code thinking it might be from someone important only to be met with silence? Are you constantly pestered by robocallers or telemarketers? Have you been receiving harassing calls from an unknown number?

Understandably, you would want to know who’s constantly making calls using a specific number. Whatever your reason may be, read on to learn about unwanted calls along with tips on how to trace and deal with such calls.

Who is Constantly Calling?

What are Unwanted Calls?

Unwanted calls, as the name implies, are calls that you’d rather not be receiving. Such unwanted and/or unsolicited phone calls are usually collectively called nuisance calls. This includes the following:

  • Prank calls
  • Telemarketer calls or sales calls
  • Robocalls
  • Silent Calls
  • Obscene phone calls
  • Spam calls 
  • Scam or Fraudulent Calls

While unwanted calls are generally annoying, there are types of calls that are perfectly legal. On the other side of the spectrum, there are unwanted calls that are downright threatening or dangerous. Spam and fraudulent calls belong to the latter. Such calls can compromise your identity and integrity, your finances, and other properties.

Here are some of the most common types of scams or fraudulent calls. Steer clear of these:

  • Tax Fraud Calls

This is especially rampant whenever tax season approaches. Fraudsters will send automated spam calls stating that your tax return is fraudulent. You will most likely be asked to call back to fix the problem as soon as possible. You might also be asked to send money to make up for the amount you owe on your taxes.

  • Health Insurance Calls

This type usually increases at the end of the year when open enrollment insurance ends. An automated call will tell you about some great deal or another when you sign up. They will also ask for your personal information before supposedly connecting you to an actual live agent.

  • Student Loan Repayment Calls

This is another common type of spam call. You will receive a call offering to help you pay off your student loans. Yes, some legitimate companies offer student loan consolidation services. It is equally true that most entities behind such calls are scammers.

  • Debt Consolidation Calls

This type of call could be tempting to people with accumulated debt. Scammers leverage on one’s desperation to immediately settle loans so as not to negatively impact their credit score. Unfortunately, you might end up paying thousands of dollars more instead.

  • “You Won” Calls

These calls often seem too good to be true. Imagine winning something without even entering any contest? Some of the most common “prizes” are a timeshare, cruise or vacation, and appliances. You will often be asked to provide personal details so you can claim your prize.

How to Trace Unwanted or Unknown Calls

Some take advantage of technology to take advantage of other people. Spammers can spoof phone numbers, often using local numbers to trick people into answering their calls. While most people’s first instinct would be to block an unknown number, you might want to trace the number first. You should especially consider this if you are expecting important calls or if you have friends or relatives who might call you using a new number.

Do a Reverse Phone Lookup

Probably one of the most effective ways to unveil the identity of the person behind a phone number is via reverse phone lookup. With ClickSearch, you simply have to enter the phone number and all information connected to that number will appear. 

How to Deal with Unwanted Calls

If you receive unwanted calls, the course of action could depend on the type of call you receive. Here are some of the things you can do to deal with such calls:

  • Call Blocking

The process of blocking phone numbers may differ depending on your device and whether the call is via landline or VOIPs. You can usually check your phone or call settings or call your network provider. Devices with iOS 13 and higher, for instance, have a Silence Unknown Callers feature. There are also network carriers that offer call blocking of unwanted calls.

  • Do Not Call List

You can register your number in the National Do Not Call Registry to help block unwanted calls. Take note though that being on the National Do Not Call List will only restrict sales calls; at least, you’ll stop getting those annoying telemarketing calls.

  • Do Not Respond

Simply not responding to spam calls will help avoid such calls. Avoid dialing numbers on their automated menu or responding to their texts to avoid giving the impression that your number is active.

  • Report Unwanted Calls

You can file a complaint if the unwanted calls do not stop. You can report the number to the FTC website or via their number. You can also report to your network service provider.
