Director of the Intellectual Reserve company Pavel Myasoedov said that it is possible to determine who called from an unidentified number by activating the paid service “Super Line Identifier” or ordering call detail.
At the same time, the expert noted that calls from hidden numbers are not always made by scammers. For example, hidden numbers are used by companies that want to attract a client with free services for visiting. This function deprives him of the opportunity to call back, reports the agency “Prime”.
“Anyone can call from an unidentified number – an acquaintance who has lost his phone, a teacher from a school or a receptionist from a polyclinic,” added Myasoedov.
According to him, if such calls need to be blocked, it is not necessary to calculate the callers – you can simply install certain applications.
Earlier, the head of the Center for Digital Expertise of Roskachestvo Anton Kukanov said that in 2020 the activity of telephone scammers in Russia has increased.
The specialist called the most suspicious numbers short, landline, without a code +7. He explained that the safest way to avoid talking to scammers is not to answer calls from unknown numbers.
