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.

    Male caller asked for me by name, and said he was from "Global Services" and it was just a quick verification call to see if I was still using my (brand name stated) washing machine. I said that I don't accept such calls, and told him to remove my number from their database. Our number is TPS registered and ex directory. Caller's number now blocked.

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. 101018 reported number 01525621648 with score 9

    Fairly obvious computer generated ie artificial voice asking about my accident and harping on about compensation. Hilarious how male scammers use a female voice. Anyway, they Called again today, I did not answer and they left no message, so hopefully that is the last of them. 10th October 2018.

  2. SomeDude reported Scammer with the number 02032896440 as Harassment calls

    Seconds time I've had a voicemail left from these guys, claiming in a terrible, monotone text-to-speech failure exactly what has been reported above; they claim they're from HMRC and that a warrant would be issued against me.
    Utter bs. Scam and harassment. Ignore it and report to TPS.
