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.

  4. michael reported unknown with the number 9173980668 as Unknown

    Would not tell me what company she was calling about only that it was a personal business matter. She wanted to confirm my address but I wouldn't say. I told her "you already have my name and phone number, Im not telling you any thing else until I know who you are." she hung up on me.

  5. Frustrated reported Synchrony Bank with the number 8664192780 as Unknown

    Left a message saying they were calling from Syncrony Financial in Utah. This must be an effort to promote some financial calling center, since others getting a call from the same number giving another business name. I think Synchrony has some credit cards for gas stations. I don't have any cards from Synchrony, so this is a marketing call for me.

  3. Rich reported Nomorobo with the number 6083716666 as trustworthy number

    If you are using Nomorobo to block unwanted calls, every call that they block is issued a challenge. Those who successfully pass that challenge are allowed to go through, and the called ID for the passed through call is changed to the Nomorobo number or else it will be blocked again. This is not a spam call, this is a call from a legitimate source. Granted, some unwanted callers can actually bother to pass the test, but so can legitimate callers who were blocked and shouldn't have been. The people reporting here that it is a spam number have not been doing their homework, as Nomorobo themselves have already explained the situation in their available documentation!
