Video: Call +447700370850: That's Behind The Spam From England
Calls to numbers like +447700370850 and similar English calls are mostly unbelievable promises to make on investment deals. It also points out that it is always the same crooks who falsify their phone numbers. In so-called “Call ID spoofing”, telephone systems send fake numbers and it is possible that the calls do not even come from England, but from India, for example.
This is known from the number +447700370850:
- Most of the time, the callers speak broken German and apparently call from a call center.
- They promise you to be able to earn a lot of money from home.
- When asked, you indicate that it would be worthwhile investments in the financial markets. Sometimes there is also talk of Bitcoin.
- The callers often claim that they have registered with a service via Facebook
- As soon as you make it clear that you are not interested, the callers become rude and insult their victims. Nevertheless, further calls to the same number follow.
It is clear to everyone that serious financial transactions and such calls are mutually exclusive. Presumably, this is "telephone phishing": the aim is to get the victims to give out as much personal data as possible and possibly agree to any mailings or subscriptions.
The best thing to do is to stop the call immediately and block the number. Don't let anything gossip you.

Complaints or requests to spare you calls in the future are generally unsuccessful.
