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 tellows.com, 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 tellows.com 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.

  1. Quick Brown Fox reported unknown with the number 4163641111 as Cost trap

    An unwanted call from this purported Scarborough, Ontario, Canada landline arrived today. When the answering machine picked up, the caller left no message, just dead space. Robocallers (unlawful telemarketers) do this all the time while trolling the phone lines seeking gullible schmucks to victimize.

    Posters have reported a wide variety of schemes by which this scam artist practices telephone thievery. To avoid becoming a victim of these telecriminals, LET YOUR ANSWERING MACHINE TAKE THEIR PATHETIC CALLS.

  2. Quick Brown Fox reported unknown with the number 8059809060 as Cost trap

    Still another unwanted call from this Arroyo Grande VOIP number arrived today, just 2 months since the last unwanted call on April 12. Once again, when the answering machine picked up, the caller left no message, just dead space. Robocallers (unlawful telemarketers) do this all the time while trolling the phone lines seeking gullible schmucks to victimize.

    DO NOT BE VICTIMIZED BY THESE TELECRIMINALS. LET YOUR ANSWERING MACHINE TAKE THEIR PATHETIC CALLS.

  3. MCI reported Unknown with the number 2167503332 as Unknown

    Credit card scam to reduce interest to 0%. They called, I strung them along for about 5 minutes. I then said I was lying to them, as they were to me, and they should be ashamed. They called me a piece of sh*t and hung up. Scam to get information for sure. Not sure why I'd have $35,000 on a card expiring in 1999, but that's their fault for not listening.

    Not sure what it is they're polling about since I screen every call I get from outside my area (excepting those of kith and kin), and they consistently do not leave messages. I found out who they were by calling the number left on my caller ID.
