Phone Number Scammer Directory

Education & Training with Real Estate Technology

I recently received a phone call from a phone scammer. This one was related to domain name renewal. But as you know there are many others out there: mortgage scams, insurance scams, etc.

I did a reverse search on the phone number and found some interesting links. This includes forums where other people have received the same call. One of the best resources I found was Who Called Us.

Who Called Us is a sort of reverse directory of "UNAVAILABLE" phone numbers. It's better than a typical reverse phone search because it includes phone numbers of scam artists (not normally listed in the white pages). In addition, you can review others' comments to see what they experienced.

NOTE: While writing this post, I just received another call from them.

So there you go... Another resource to put into your arsenal of tools to protect your clients and yourself.

Update: Three calls so far this morning (all from the same people). I've reported them to the FTC.

Just in case nobody has told you yet today, you are wonderful.  You're always there with the greatest information.  Thanks again.

This makes sense why not put the pressure on and turn them in!

I have all of my calls logged. I then report them to FTC as well as a few other sites on the Internet.

I didn't know we could check further after getting UNAVAILABLE. What a great resource for us to use.  Thanks, Jason.

Thanks Jason - sometimes the reverse directory at doesn't really cover everything.
