Advice from the state criminal police office: recipients of these messages should ideally never interact with them and never call the stored phone number. In addition, it is important that strangers are not allowed into the apartment in this context. If visitors are pretending to be police officers or civil servants, always ask to show their ID. If you notice that callers want to have a conversation with you, do not allow yourself to be pressured and it is better to end the call immediately.
If you have the slightest suspicion, it is recommended to call the authority to which the caller is supposed to belong. This can be done even if the alleged officer is at your door. Important: It is essential to keep the front door closed during a call.
In general, users should always bear in mind that the police or any other official agency will never ask you for money or valuables. It should also be noted that information about your financial circumstances should never be provided on the phone or at the front door, and valuables or money should never be handed over to strangers.
