We categorise calls by type (debt collection, serious number, 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.

Latest from our blog

    We've all had to deal with the same thing. As your phone rings from dawn till dusk and nuisance calls bask in a sun of trickery, it is the spammer and scammer that will rule the day, but nay we say!!! intents to disrupt the fraudster line of success by distributing important information on all sorts of unsolicited calls. If you receive a call from an unknown number, just access the tellows database and find details on the numbers point of origin and the nature of the call. The people's ignorance is the scammer most effective advantage. Once you know who you are facing, you will also know the way to counteract their malevolent attempts appropriately. At this, the number's tellows score will tell you whether caller is reliable or dubious. The higher the score the higher the risk. Learn more on tellows-blog

    2. Anonymous reported QLD Government S. O. with the number 0730356428 as Survey

      This number belongs to QLD Government Statists Office who behave, well like QLD Government does, that is unprofessional, dodgy and incompetent. My partner got a letter stating that he will be contacted by one of them to conduct research in regards to attitudes towards relationships in QLD. They kept calling him over days including weekends but he was working. Eventually he picked up, they were not intrested in speaking to him at all, they questioned him about me and requested that they want to speak to me (I did not receive any letters like he did). Eventually they called again when he was home and he passed the phone to me, I questioned what this research is about but the woman was pushy, passive aggressive and made an assumption that becouse she is so important to work for QLD Government I will just jump in joy to participate, she did not ask me if I am ok with it, did not provide any infornation about how the data will be used, she wanted to know where I live and asked other personal questions. She was also very manipulative when I raised my concerns about this whole thing. I literally had to rise my voice to get her off the phone with me and made her understand that we do not welcome any more calls from them and consider it to be a harrasment. QLD Government is way over their heads if they think that people trust or respect them. Dodgy, overconfident filth. You want to know about attitudes towards relationships in QLD??? How about you move your fat bureaucratic lazy arses and look at the data you already have - at least one woman is murdered per week by an intimate partner and your police, magistrates and child protection bodies keep doing nothing about it, minimising and shaming the victims the good conservative patririarhal way.

    Where does the information on telephone numbers come from?

    The main indicator of a number's trustworthiness, the tellows-score, is the result of a complex algorithm that is fed by your comments and ratings on numbers. Your participation is the key to successfully counteract future spam and scam attempts since the callee knows who he or she is dealing with prior to answering the phone. Share your knowledge on the trickery of dubious entrepreneurs and help to deny them their unlawful treasure.
