Ping Anrufe are called “ping calls” in English and they are scam calls that are made to purposely ring for a short while in order for you NOT to pick up the phone, but for you to call them back. Once you fall for the trick of calling them back, you are then charged for the return call made, similar to a 900 number or a collect call.

So, if you have a ping call, you definitely should not return the call especially if it is from a foriegn number you are totally unfamiliar with.

You can also report the call as a Ping Anrufe to the Federal Network Agency.

Ping anrufe are designed to pique your curiosity!

If you get frequent calls but don’t answer the phone quickly enough, it’s probably a ping anrufe.

  • The call is only intended to arouse your curiosity and to call you back on the phone number provided. However, you should not do this under any circumstances, as you are usually calling a very expensive number. A tape will start there asking you to be patient.
  • Ping anrufe beginning with 0137
    are very common.

The Federal Network Agency is now cracking down on ping anrufe and are implimenting certain measures to telecom companies to protect consumers in multiple countries.

For example, when callers do return these ping anrufe, the callers MUST recieve a notification that the call is not a FREE call. This will ensure that the callers have a choice in continuing in the call or not.

The scammers want you to call back!

Those calls are used to get a callback. Ping anrufe are also described as “missed-call scams”. A cell phone rings once or twice and the caller then hangs up the call to activate a call back to a billing number. In current cases, on the telephone display shows a number which at first glance is easy to confuse with as an area code.

When you do return the call, they bring you to a recorded message. The recorded messages range from incomprehensible announcements in foreign languages ​​​​to competitions, erotic messages or alleged parcel deliveries. The aim of the scammers is to keep the caller on the line as long as possible in order to benefit from the charges incurred.

Charge notification, now implemented for most obvious countries, lets the caller know that you have a local number before the start of the costly call.

This enables the consumer to cancel the call in time before costs arise .

 With the help of area codes, it is also possible that the actual telephone number is not displayed. You should also be careful with toll-free numbers. Phone numbers starting with 0800 can also be a collective call scam. There are other phone numbers that can indicate a ping anrufe, e.g. foreign phone numbers. 

You should always be cautious when an unknown number tries to call you.
