A Berlin number is number 1
According to this compilation, it is a Berlin phone number from which most spam calls were made in August 2022. The number 03016637169 appeared on the phone display of the person called a total of 13,277 times. Anyone who answered this call was confronted with a competition. The brief description of this is: “Travel voucher, shopping voucher offered, you have the correct address and cell phone number, then ask for your date of birth – fraud!”
Other very popular spam numbers
In second place with just over 9,000 recorded calls is a number from Frankfurt am Main: 06966102716. The callers are trying to take advantage of the rising electricity and energy prices for dubious machinations and probably promise cheaper rates. The only thing that helps here is: hang up. Or better yet, don’t even answer the call.
