)-- Tellows is an international online community for phone numbers and free reverse number search. It recently spread its service over 18 countries worldwide and is available in their respective languages for each of the countries. Besides other online communities with similar services, Tellows is busy with the prevention of phone spam and scam by providing a free reverse number search engine that is steadily growing.

Tellows is the first of all phone number look-up websites to provide this kind of score. So far, only Tellows came up with the idea to label numbers by giving them a score and color. Compiled by a number's search requests, the caller's category and user's rating a complex algorithm generates the Tellows Score, hence, providing reference on the trustworthiness of each number.
Essentially Tellows intends to serve as a voice for the victims of spam and scam calls. Not only does it provide an internationally available platform (18 countries, e. g. USA, Austria, Czech Republic, New Zealand, Russia) but also it gives the opportunity to rate the telephone numbers with the help of the Tellows Score. It makes a number’s potential danger obvious at first sight, so that the telemarketers’ fraudulent ways will become obvious for everyone. A Tellows score of 1 indicates a reliable number whereas a rating of 9 implies a most dubious number. Reliable phone numbers are represented by numbers smaller than 5 and highlighted in green whereas dubious numbers entertain numbers greater than 5 up to 9 highlighted in red. The more negative comments, the higher the number’s rating.
Everyone who has knowledge of a dangerous number is most welcome to share it with other users who suffer the same unnerving calls. Still, the cases of scam and frauds connected with prior telephone contact have increased within the last years. It is not only simple telemarketing that is eating up people’s nerves worldwide but also phone automates ping-calling and SMS.
