Would you like to know who called you?

This is how tellows works

We've all had to deal with the same thing. Your phone rings 24/7 and shows no sign of stopping, but if ever you should pick up, all you hear is the incessant yabbering of a telemarketer or nothing at all. You're infuriated by the anonymous calls jamming your phone line. Is there some way of finding out who is on the other end? Do you pick up or leave it ringing? Who is calling?
Sound familiar? There are thousands of people asking the same question every day. In response to this universal problem, tellows functions as an online database of telephone numbers associated with spam and scam activity reported by you, our users. By sharing your experiences with unknown numbers, you'll be providing vital warning information to other users unsure about whether or not to trust a certain caller. The more information is shared, the bigger the database grows and thus the chance of finding out who's at the end of that anonymous call becomes higher and higher. Thanks to the tellows app you can identify unknown callers on your iPhone and Android! Whilst you are at it, take a look at our various other useful tools in our tellows shop today.
Here at, not only can we provide up-to-date information on regional nuisance-call trends and currently active numbers with the heatmap, we also pinpoint the origin of your call and display it on a map by identifying the prefix.
Used by over 200,000 people daily, tellows provides its services to people in over 47 countries, but is geared specifically towards those residing in North America. Want to hear more? We have some light reading material that might be of interest to you. Check out our tellows blog for news on the latest scams, tellows products and updates in telecoms regulations that affect you or grab a copy of our free tellows magazine,which came together after our many years of experience on the subject of telephone terror and scams. This not only includes important background information about phone fraud but the methodology behind it.

    Keeps calling. I answered once and there was just silence, the next time a lady asked if I wanted to lower my car insurance bill. I told her to quit calling, but I still see missed calls from this number.

  4. NedsSeeingRed reported RES Solar with the number 7068051789 as Cost trap

    This number showed up a few times on my called ID as RES Solar. I picked up once to tell them to stop calling cause I don't need solar panels and the caller said he was from the Fraternal Order of Police and that I promised to send them money weeks ago and they are still waiting for it. First off I never had any call from the police looking to raise money and also why would the police use a business number to do their fundraising? I hung up on them.

Where does the information on telephone numbers come from?

Huge amounts of data are entered into tellows sites worldwide each day - further comments on existing numbers as well as entirely new number profiles from first-time searches - all thanks to our users. User contributions are key to tellows' central function: the tellows score. Each time information on a number is given, the information is put through a complex algorithm to generate a trustworthiness rating, on a scale of 1-9. The respective score is clearly displayed at the top of the profile page for each number, making identifying an unknown caller possible in a matter of seconds and saving you not only time, but the frustration of dealing with annoying sales calls.

  3. Todd reported unknown with the number 8325474267 as Sweepstakes, lottery

    OK - the very NEXT DAY after I entered my cell phone in a required slot for a GM automobile financing loan on-line, this number started calling. I was really reluctant to enter my phone number to GM financing, but I really needed to in order to get contacted for the car loan. I will try to find a way around this the next time I am asked to enter my phone number in an information query. I blame the financing company as much as the damn telemarketer for either giving or selling my phone number to them....
