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 rattles furiously as it's bombarded with nuisance call after nuisance call and you have no way of knowing who's calling. Will it be over enthused telemarketers or, perhaps even more annoying, a swift click and the dialing-tone drone? Should you take the call or ignore it? Who's on the other end?
Rest assured that you're not alone. In a world where cold callers can sometimes seem to hold a global monopoly over phone lines, tellows aims to provide a solution. We function as a vast online database of phone number profiles, generated thanks to feedback and reviews from our online community. Providing an online platform where users can share their experiences of these kinds of calls and flag up numbers responsible for junk calls means that information on suspicious numbers becomes readily available, helping other members of the tellows community to anticipate potential risk calls. Join the international community that is currently operating in 47 countries with more than 200,000 users on a daily basis and download the new tellows app today for your iPhone or android. And whilst you are at it, take a look at our various other useful tools available for purchase in our tellows shop.
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.
We ontop feature the pinpoint location your call originated from and display it on a map, using the dialling code. Learn more about international dialling codes.

    This number keeps calling my mobile and landline around 4 times a day claiming to be from a credit card company and asking to confirm a few details. When I ask them to confirm my details to me as they should know according to the account I have with them they hang up. Know I have started getting random withheld calls at riddiculous times. There is something not right

  4. Shirley reported MGI/Sapphire with the number 08445671020 as Cost trap

    I was called on April this year by the company named above, they offered a magazine and money off vouchers. They offered to send out a pack to view for the cost if £1.00 which I agreed. However I did not receive this 'pack' and on May I noticed an amount if £80.00 taken from my bank account. I called said company enquiring about this in which they told me I never cancelled within 14 days of receiving the pack so this was yearly subscription. Didn't matter that I did not get the pack they had their back covered and wasn't goin to see one penny back. Then on August there was again another £80.00 taken frm my account, called and they td me it was money I owed as they did not have any records of my first payment. I had to get a bank statement and prove this by email before I would get my money back. This was 4 wks ago and iam still waiting for money to be out back into my account!!! Do NOT trust anyone from this company!!!!

Where does the information on telephone numbers come from?

tellows provides a platform where those who receive frequent spam and scam phonecalls can share their knowledge on a particular caller by commenting on the phone number's profile. Profiles are generated automatically if a number is being searched for the first time. We categorise calls by type (debt collection, sweepstakes, etc.) and give the number in question a tellows score, which indicates whether a number is trustworthy or suspicious, helping you to decide whether or not to take the call. This risk rating is generated by a complex algorithm that incorporates data such as user ratings and search statistics. Want to find out more about how the tellows score works?
The bulk of the information on the site comes from user reviews and our database is constantly expanding and becoming more detailed thanks to information from you, our online community. By providing information on a number, you can help innumerable other people to anticipate and avoid a malicious call.

    These people have called yet again but unfortunately due to my Truecall box they do not get through (not one has in over a year!!)I will now put them onto my Zap list and they will next time get my personal message (Unfortunately we do not take calls from you. Please do not try to ring back so F**K off. Goodbye!) and they are disconected after 20 seconds of paying for their call. Feel better you bet!

  4. Fed Up reported The Hearing Centre with the number 01274965666 as Aggressive advertising

    Numerous calls from this number even though told every time to remove any and all my details from the data base. As this does not seem to work, I have now resorted to a bit of good old Anglo Saxon. It may not achieve anything but I feel a lot better after letting rip!
