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.

    When the guy asked me about an accident I'd never had I told him I'd not had any accident recently and I was going to hang up because I thought he was trying to scam me he told me he didn't like my attitude and would phone me back on Monday as I may have had an accident by then! He refused to say who he was and what company he was calling from.

    No doubt a scammer!
    Well my phones both landline and mobile are on "Do not disturb"
    24/7 so you can only get through if you are in my directory. I also have call blocking facilities on both so I'm never harassed.

  4. Annoyed reported Amy from ? with the number 0001786601000 as Telemarketer

    Asking questions about how old my windows are (those in the house!). The government has allocated lots of money to upgrade windows that I may be able to claim. Trouble is, after they hang up you are flooded with calls from pushy window salesmen. So, really, this is a sales call hiding behind a 'survey!' Asked to be taken off the list....which never happens.

  5. Paul reported unknown with the number 02033188579 as Cost trap

    Just seen my phone bill and these guys got me on a Ryanair text which went via via and I finally ended up with a text saying £4.50 charged and to run until I send STOP. Ive done that but am not too hopeful that it will actually stop the payments after reading this, so I've contacted my provider who have been excellent and refunded the money and should any more payments be made then they will take further action. My advice is to get onto your provider straight away because they take a very dim view of these leeches and keen to help to keep us, their customers, happy. Good luck people.

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.

  2. Galaxy24 reported unknown with the number 02031988079 as Harassment calls

    Cold call saying they were going to block cold calls to my line. I said that their call was a cold call and the response was that they were not trying to sell anything. When I firmly told them to do nothing whatsoever the response was that they were going to ensure I received lots of cold calls.

  5. Angela reported unknown with the number 02035663005 as Unknown

    This number rang me today but I didn't answer it as I was in a different room chatting with family. I dialled 1471 and this number came up. I searched online about it and then came here. I'm very annoyed because I'm Ex-directory and shouldn't be having unknown numbers ringing me!
