      Keep calling. Asking for my ID number or date of birth. Once told me that is related to a Telkom account. I explained that they have wrong information and that my Telkom account is fully paid and up-to-date. But they still keep phoning me. I have nothing in writing or by email from them. I don't even know how much they want to stop the calls.

    4. Anon-E-Mouse reported number ‎+27214651431 as DA Call Centre

      10/20/21 8:50 AM

      I did not answer the call. However I saw on another site that it is the DA call centre. This is obviously in connection with the upcoming local elections. I have previously informed the DA that I do not want to be contacted. Shows how little they care about people's rights. They always phone before elections. Never at any other time. Typical political party attitude.

    Where does the information on telephone numbers come from?

    The distribution of information on scam and spam methods is vital to oppose the leaching of people's purses. To achieve this goal tellows is aggregating a vast bulk of useful information on the caller, including his or her approximate location. The key indicator of a number's trustworthiness is the tellows score which is generated through a complex algorithm fed by your comments and ratings of the respective phone numbers. Hence, the success of this anti-fraud endeavour goes hand in glove with the community's participation. If you have experience on the matter, share it and warn your fellows before the scammers drain their pocket dry.

      Claimed to be from ITC Summons collecting on behalf of White Pages(another scam company). I told them send me details so I can open a case of fraud as no valid contract and in order to be a debt collector and blacklist us they have to be registered with CDC which they are not. Baseless threats
