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.

    02039660884. They miss called me 3 times. I rang back on a landline and they said who they were. She asked me if she could call me back on my mobile as then my details would pop up.
    She said I had entered an online form and I was selected to win 3 lines on this week's Euro Millions draw. told me about a promotion where I get 10 lines every Tuesday and Friday for 3 months at a cost of £9.99 per month, she said it would be with the credit card I used to shop on that site with. She said I had filled in an energy survey online in the past 6 months. I told her I hadn't completed any surveys lately and then she said ok sorry to bother you, she didn't try to get me to still complete my order. I think they can't force you as the call is recorded and anything I don't agree to or confirm I haven't done is against GDPR Regulations. Ignore this call, it does sound genuine, but I'm glad I asked the questions.

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.

  1. midspm reported "HMRC" with the number 01223968507 as Harassment calls

    As others have said, automated voicemail left supposedly from HMRC. Decided to have some fun and call the number back, spoke to "michael" who decided he could prove to me he was from HMRC by calling me from a direct line. When challenged that this wouldn't prove anything he said check the number online and put the phone down. So i called him back and challenged again, and again he put the phone down. Total scam. If I had nothing better to do I'd bug him all day.
