Default PIN search methods

Does anyone know if there is a way for me to punch in a PIN and get a username? I got a request this morning to add someone to my BB Messenger, but I have no clue who it is. I get the PIN and a BB username, but do not know the person. I am leary of accepting the invite to let them add me to their list. Is there a possibility of phishing via PIN, or am I just being an idiot? Anyway, if there is some type of database that you could punch in PIN #'s and get a name of a person that would be great. I am not on a BES, I am just an individual user thru Verizon on a BB 7250.

Thx,
~BULL
