Phone calls from Europol/"Europol"

4 posts in this topic

I've received several calls from someone claiming to be at Europol saying that my German foreigner ID/residency number has been misused. When I answer, it's a recorded voice saying "Press 1 for more information". On the occasion of the first call I did this, the person then hung up when I asked how I could know who they were. The other time I pressed !, said I had received this call, and the person just hung up.

 

Have others received similar calls?

I posted first, then searched the forum. Should have searched first, I know. As I assumed, it's a scam.

Yes in English as well.  Oh 999 how did you know it was me :-). I blocked the number.

A few minutes ago I got a call on my mobile from 0170 1895144 which started off with an obviously recorded message (female speaker) claiming to be from Europol at which point I stopped the call.  That number is probably a spoof number.
