Scammer Phone Number Lookup: The Finder Trick
How To Find Any Phone Number: The Scam
If you wonder how to find any phone number online, don’t fall for the Scammer Phone Number Lookup Scam. Let’s dive in.
Let’s say you are looking for the coordinates of a long-time lost friend or a potential business lead. You can’t even find him/her on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. That’s when you come across an online service that “finds” everybody’s phone number for only $1! Not bad, you say, and buy-in.
Little do you know that you will be silently charged, monthly, a much bigger amount. Once you catch them, they will justify the charges as a membership, saying you can access any other numbers, unlimited, anytime. By the time you have figured out where the charge comes from, you probably have lost tens of dollars, maybe hundreds.
A different variation of the scam is the Reverse Phone Number Find. Watch the video below to see exactly how the scam occurs:
