We all receive calls from numbers we do not recognise but there is a good way to check who the caller is by searching the number on our database, we receive reports from different individuals daily reporting numbers they do not recognise and give them a rating for several categories as accident, PPI, Energy, Fraud, Insurance, Lottery, Robocall, Scam, SMS and Spam.
The ratings provide information if the call is dangerous, harassing, Unknown, Neutral or Safe. This is a proven method to check a number using all the data from real experiences of people.

We are happy to assist the public with extra protection against spams and our data is also important at an advisory level, gathering all of the reported numbers for government authorities and public organisations to take action against dangerous and fraudulent numbers. The platform is designed with the collaborative approach as traditionally it was not possible to obtain such information publicly before the scammers were easily targeting the public and were successful.
The community have chosen to behave cohesively to support each other by sharing the caller's details and their experience with them. This is a huge change that helped shape the action of the call receiver and envision the action.
