The people with different company names answer these calls. It is even likely that no real company can be found behind the number 040655891950. Technically, it is relatively easy to fake the outgoing phone number these days.

This method is called call ID spoofing. For example, call centers in Turkey have been identified that cheat people with fake German phone numbers. So there is little point in complaining to the Federal Network Agency about these advertising calls.

This is known from the calls on the phone number 040655891950:

  • The callers speak to you by your name.
  • They want to persuade you to change the electricity provider.
  • In the background one hears the conversation of other telephone calls (call center).
  • Pretend to be an electricity consultancy or even the local public utility.
  • If you ask where they got the telephone number and the name of the subscriber from, they are given an alleged participation in a competition or participation in a survey.

The callers either bought your number and personal data from one of the relevant illegal address exchanges or they got it through theft (hacked websites). There is probably nothing legally you can do about these calls, but you're still not entirely helpless. Here are our tips.
