What do you do when unsolicited calls grind down your every nerve? Do you ignore calls or do you answer them? And above all: Who calls you?

For this very reason, aims to divulge the spam and scam callers by providing a plattform for all those who must endure the harassment of telemarketers and other dubious entrepreneurs.

    Where does the information on telephone numbers come from?

    In order to achieve our goals it is imperative to sum up every information available on the callers. That's when you come into play. By sharing your knowledge on spam and scam numbers in form of comments and your ratings you feed a complex alghorithm that not only produces the tellows-score but also gives advice on the trustworthiness of the numbers calling you. But at the end of the day, it will your participation that will generate the amount of information needed to save people before they suffer the consequences of being scammed. Share your knowledge and, therewith, negate the scammers greatest advantage that is the people's ignorance.

      This number rang me persistently for four days. I finally answered today. It was an Australian man claiming he was from three. So I rang the official three helpline and they confirmed it’s an illegitimate number. Just block this number the first time they call.
