I have an iPhone 4 running iOS 7 latest version.
Several times a day my phone will fire off the tri-tone sound and I will think I have just received an SMS, but there is nothing, and no alerts in the pull-down notifications. I have been through the list of apps in the notifications. My mail apps are in the Do Not Include section of Settings | Notification Center.

In the Notification Centre settings, you can have an app only play sounds but not show any notifications, or show anything on the lock screen.
Take a look through the list for entries that only show Sound as the notification options, and turn off the sound option.

There will be different notifications using the same sound.
Swipe down from the top of the screen to see a list of notifications and see which one it was, then go into Settings => Notifications to turn them off!
