Abstract: We show that for every totally ordered group $\Gamma$ and invertible function $f\in C(\widehat\Gamma)$ which does not have a logarithm, there is a representation in which the Toeplitz operator $T_f$ is a Breuer-Fredholm operator with nonzero index; this representation is the GNS-representation associated to a natural unbounded trace on the Toeplitz algebra $\mathcal T(\Gamma)$.
