News on the 0190 dialer front
After the annoying 0190 dialers became a little quieter, a new record-breaking dialer was discovered next to the already known ones. According to the consumer advocate, a 0190 dialer should be on the move, which estimates a total of 1200 euros per dial-in.
Like the magazine Finanztest reports, but you can also catch an 0190 dialer on T-Online's own homepage. Then namely when you take advantage of one of the erotic offers that are offered there. You have to pay 25 euros once. Every further minute is then booked with 2.30 euros. According to the financial test, if you are the victim of one of these monster dialers who want to collect a horrific amount per dial-in, you should immediately appeal to Telekom. At the same time, you should cut your phone bill by this amount. Unfortunately, the people behind such rip-offs are difficult or even impossible to determine today. Due to a protection ordinance of the federal government against dialer abuse, the network operators, such as Telekom, are not allowed to collect payments on behalf of the rip-off, who must do it himself, which, however, should be difficult for him in view of the effort that was put into concealing his origin. You can also protect yourself against being ripped off in advance, for example by blocking the 0190 area code. That costs no more than 7.73 euros at Telekom. Unfortunately, this also blocks deliberate calls to numbers with the 0190 area code.
