Dear friends of tellows,
in contrast with September announcing the beginning of fall and with that another change of season, there are some things that seem to never change: nuisance callers and telephone scammers have been as busy as ever the past week and as usual, we like to share with you the top 3 worst offenders:
1. +17148680120 with 8 comments and 13259 search requests. tellows Score: 5
2. 68547111 with 2 comments and 624 search requests. tellows Score: 8
3. 2142831316 with 2 comments and 1395 search requests. tellows Score: 9
Our first number of the week is +17148680120, and has been active around the globe with comments on tellows Indonesia and Belgium as well. While most users are wary of the calls as they appear to be made frequently and without any identification of the caller, our user Bert indicated something else:
its a service number of the microsoft corperation
Ranking on this week’s second place, number 68547111 is a newcomer. Similarly to the first number, the identity of the caller is uncertain, with some users warning that it might be a cost trap as they were charged for the incoming call. User Geegee voiced concern about the trustworthiness of the number, as he has been receiving silent calls:
This number called me and leave voice mail, but there is no voice and after several minutes there is a scary male husking voice, I deleted the voice msg
Last, but not least, number 2142831316 has been the number with the third most search requests this week. Again, the caller prefers to stay unknown and with a tellows score of 9 (untrustworthy) has been preceived as harassment by most of our users. User Will Nelson, who suspects a telemarketer behind the calls, has found a way to handle the frequent calls:
I let my fax machine answer such calls I don’t know who they are.. But I would like these calls to stop..
