Sometimes we all get strange messages that make us want to ask this same question, how do I Track Down the Mystery Person Who Just Texted You? Well, it’s obvious the person either knows you but texted with another number or did not but there was a mistake while the sender was sending to a number.
The message might not be for you, but it gets weird when this message from an unknown number keeps coming. most people hate calling unknown numbers, texting back could be the only option you have and once the person doesn’t reply, then you need help to track down the mystery person behind this.
Track Down the Mystery Person Who Just Texted You
The message can be annoying at times, you might be lucky to find the person, I will list out a few ways you can do this.
Use Reverse look-up on google
This step is pretty easy and you might be lucky to find the person but this method is just one of the weakest ways because eventually, the person number is not even on the internet.
Open your browser and paste the number of the person in the address bar, if the number appears anywhere, google will bring it up.
You can also use those websites online that claim to give you the owner of a number to search for these people, you may be lucky.
This method is just silly and may not give you what you want but it works and I have experienced it, if you search my number on google you will see some places where my number is linked to.
Search for the Number on groups
This one can be obvious that the person messaging you, just want to get some attention to ask you for a favor because they know you won’t or may not reply to random messages on Whatsapp or such messaging apps that have phone numbers like to it.
Go to groups and search for the number, you may be lucky to find one.
Search for the number on social media
You can search their number on Facebook, Snapchat, and any other social medium you know, with their number you can get their name and other rest details about them.
I think this is more of a tactic than using websites and social media to know the unknown number, what I mean is, you can send a message to the person like you were sending it to another person and be like “Hey James, you look great last night”, the person will want to reply, “hmm, I’m not James”, you can now ask please may I know what you.
Just ask other people
You may find out that the person texting you might have someone you know, asking around might just get the job done, ask your friends whose number is that, if they have it, then they will relate.

If you were unable to the person then try sending message, if the person refuse the reply, check the person on whatsapp, he/she may have their profile picture uploaded, if their number isn’t registered on whatsapp, try calling the number and you get no responds then i think it’s time you block the number from texting you.
