Dear tellows friends,
the tellows team is working on a new section and now regularly presents you with current statistics on calling behavior and trustworthyness for frequently reported companies.
Thousands of phone numbers are used for fraudulent purposes every day and the people called are robbed of their money. Callers often use the names of well-known brands and try to outsmart their victims.
tellows study with unique data
In a unique study we categorized Amazon related phone numbers on tellows. Data from the last 365 days from around 130 telephone numbers were evaluated.
We combine unique tellows data with expert knowledge and extensive research. On tellows, we evaluate thousands of reviews every day and create statistics and data clusters on relevant phone numbers and new scams. This allows us to focus on actual active phone numbers and quickly identify new dubious phone numbers.
Fraud calls are increasing
Fraud cases involving callers falsely posing as Amazon employees or corporate partners are on the rise. Over 50 percent of all calls reported on tellows do not come from Amazon itself. We anticipate that there will be an increased volume of fraud before Christmas.
In our study we explain to you which fraud methods are carried out by alleged Amazon employees, how you can recognize these scams and which telephone numbers are used by official Amazon employees: To the Amazon study
The community makes the difference
We need your help to identify reputable phone numbers of well-known companies and to detect fraudulent intent. We want to continue reporting on the most frequently reported telephone numbers of large enterprises. With your reports, we can conduct further studies and shed light on fraudulent calls on behalf of well-known brands.
We would like to know from you which topics you are particularly interested in and which calls we should examine next? Which companies have you already received calls from and were you not sure whether they are actual company employees or fraud? We look forward to your comments!
