Wangiri: call scam hits Hungarian mobile subscribers

Telenor and its customers put in place effective protection against scammers

Last weekend, Hungarian mobile customers were hit by a Wangiri-type scam where missed calls are being made from far-flung countries to encourage people to call back expensive international numbers. The scammers earn money after international, potentially premium-rate, calls. During the weekend, Telenor’s network received over 100,000 such calls but the operator blocked these numbers immediately to protect its customers.


Telenor launches VoLTE

The new technology featuring HD voice quality offers a call setup time 2 or 3 times faster than its predecessors.

The Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology recently launched by Telenor offers faster call setup and better voice quality enabling customers to simultaneously make a voice call and enjoy the benefits of Hipernet 4G data access.


Tips for fighting e-mail scam

Similarly to other companies, Telenor Hungary has also faced the issue of fraudsters distributing false payment notices in its name to trick customers into sending money or disclosing their personal data to them. This problem affects not only the operator’s customers but all Hungarians, as criminals tend to send their e-mails on a random basis. In response to this, Telenor Hungary has launched an education campaign for the Hungarian public and filed a report with the police regarding the e-mail scam.
