In many fraudulent calls, the Berlin telephone area code 030 is displayed. It’s not always real. We collect the 030 telephone numbers that have become conspicuous for you and explain what is behind the calls.


The area code 030 actually belongs to the city of Berlin, but not every call with such a number really comes from there. Through “call ID spoofing” this area code is displayed to you by a dialing computer, which is often located abroad. Then, of course, these calls are fraudulent. If you get a call and the phone number is 030 at the beginning, you might find it here.

So you block the numbers or the whole 030 area code

It’s not recommended to block all numbers with an 030 area code, although you can. There are enough “useful” 030 phone numbers, such as 03022957920 from the Amazon delivery service, whose calls you want to be sure to receive.

But if you see one of the above numbers in the display, you can block them directly and this is how it works:
