    Where does the information on telephone numbers come from?

    Tellows.co.nz accumulates new spam and scam numbers on a daily basis. However, the user is the greatest contributor of new numbers! Therewith, you provide the knowledge necessary to avoid being ripped off. Furthermore, the categorisation and analysis of the callers nature and, above all, your rating of the number will climax in the tellows score which will convey whether the caller is trustworthy or dubious. The greatest advantage lies in sharing all avaiable information on a fraudulent number and, thereby, warning the people of looming dangers before they even lift the receiver.
