What is a Text Mail Subscriber? Is it Genuine or Scam?

Among the various modes of communication using the Internet, a text mail subscriber could be the most controversial one. Many people have no idea about it while a few know how to use it for their personal advantages. A lot of times when you return a missed call or a message, you hear a message that the “Text mail subscriber is not available.”

Sometimes, you hear nothing. This happens when the caller or texter is using the internet to connect with you over text mail. Interested to know more about it and how it works? This post will help you to understand everything. Just keep reading.

What is a Text Mail Subscriber?

A Text Mail Subscriber is any person who requests to receive text emails via the internet, instead of the traditional calls initiating from the mobile phone or landline. The text mails are sent through email clients and ESPs (Email Solution Provider) provides support for different types of content. The ESP also determines which format will be displayed to the target.

Any Text Mail will contain a message and a phone number. However, you can’t respond to them directly. You can not call or text back this number as the message is sent via the web. When you try calling it back, you will hear a voicemail stating that the text mail subscriber is not available.

Sometimes, you won’t even hear anything. Google Voice would be the most popular example of this. A person who receives text mail can only read emails that are sent to them as plain text.

What is a Text Mail Subscriber Phone Number & Message?

Now that you understand that a Text Mail Subscriber is any individual who receives a text mail that consists of only plaint text, let’s take a look at its components. The two main components of a text mail are the text message and the text mail subscriber number.

  • Text Message: It is the main part of the communication that is written in plain text consisting of only alphabetic and numeric characters. It doesn’t include HTML or Rich text as the mode of communication.
  • Text Mail Subscriber Number: It is the number that is used to send the text mail to any text mail subscriber. It is provided only upon specific request, and the administration often enquires the reason for its need.

These are the two main components that build any text mail. Whenever you receive one, you will always find these. Sometimes the message can be empty due to any voluntary or involuntary error.

Can you find who called you via Text Mail Subscription?

It is not really possible for a normal individual to find out who called you via a text mail subscription. However, this doesn’t mean that the sender is untrackable. The police and special authorities can always track them under special circumstances if they are not masking their identity and using an ESP.

The best you can know about the sender of a Text Mail is if it is legit or spam. To do that, you’ll have to carefully look at the message of the text mail and verify if it is real. Most of the time the text mails would be spam if they are from an unknown number. I’d recommend that you block them to stay safe.

How to track a Text Mail Subscriber?

If you still wish to track a sender of a Text Mail Subscriber, you can try this simple strategy. Remember that there is no straightforward method and you’ll have to utilize your researching skills.

The first thing you can do is to Google the same number in inverted commas and check out the results. For example, search “xxx-xxxx-xxx.” I’d also recommend searching the result over the DuckDuckGoGo search engine.

If the number is connected to any social media platforms, Google will display it on the top searches. From there, you can track it. You can also use a mobile number tracking app like “Truecaller” for this purpose. Remember that I’m not promoting any of them here.

Is Text Mail Subscriber a scam?

A lot of people wonder that the text mails coming from an unknown number are scams or spam. It is true to an extent as not every Text Mail Subscriber is not a scam. The bad reputation comes from the fact that they are often used for scams. It is up to you to find out if the text mail is genuine or not.

Usually, if there is no information about the organization that is sending you text mails available on the web, they are frauds. You should avoid responding or paying attention to their messages. It’d be better if you can just block their numbers.

How to spot a fake or fishy text mail message?

Many organizations and brands use text mail subscriptions for promotions and marketing. They are widely used for various purposes. Thus, it could be hard to identify which text mail is genuine and which isn’t for an innocent reader. However, there is no need to worry. I’ll explain what you have to do in order to verify any text mail.

The first thing you have to do is search about the organization or the text mail number on Google. Read about the company, their reviews, and a few other things to find out if they are legit.

Also, if you have received a branded text mail or message on your device, it will show a name instead of the sender’s number. This is because the message is sent by a government-registered company. Most of the time, these messages will be real.

But, when you have received a message from an unknown number, especially having a very lucrative offer, you should simply close it. 95 times out of 100, it’ll be a scam.

Do not click on any links provided in the message or follow the steps provided by them. A little common sense can always protect you against such threats.

Final Verdict

A Text Mail Subscriber is an individual who is receiving a text message or email on their device via the internet. This email or message consists of only plain text having alphabets and numeric characters. There is no use of HTML, Rich Text, or any multimedia files. These types of emails are often used for scams. So, you should always verify them before trusting.
