Insisting Telstra and I were having difficulties with the internet offering to help me via my computer to fix the problem. I said what a great idea, but how stupid do you think I am? Instant hang up!!
This number called - as I do not know it, I did not pick up. Did not leave a msg. I always review suspicious numbers on the internet and here we go! Thank you fior you comments. SCAM Claim they are representing Telstra and regarding internet... What a scam! Caller said he was from the call blocking register and that they were going to block all the nuisance calls to my number. I said 'great' but knew something wasn't right. He then proceeded to tell me that my credit card that we paid our last bill with was expiring soon and that I needed to update my details. I told him I didn't have my card on me and he said he would wait while I went to get it. I told him I wasn't giving him any details as I have no clue who he is and he hung up. I tried to call the number back and it said it was disconnected. Caller: Telstra Call Blocker.?
Telstra Call Blocker. 2nd time in a week. A free service to block calls apparently. 1st time he started asking if you pay Telstra direct and account details . 2nd time just gave him a mouthfull and hung up.
Caller: Maude from Telstra - Rubbish of course
Name came up 'Maude' - from Telstra (apparently) insisting my internet was going to be down for 4-5 days. I had just been on the phone this morning to Telstra with nbn issues & was expecting a call back - how the hell do these nutjobs know??? Luckily I could barely hear a word she said & asked her to repeat herself about 10 times in over a 2 minute period. She hung up. I suspect I will get a call back later. Definitely Indian/Pakistan/Sri Lankan accent - not sure which, I'm a bit rusty
Why can't Telstra catch these people. After-all I have to pay for my calls and what are they paying. Foreign male voice called 8.15 am wa time and said he was calling from Telstra technical dept. Hung up immediately. Caller: (02) 6974 5492
Indian male phoned re Telstra internet connection - told them I knew they were a scam and hung up.
Caller: Telemarketer / scammer
Omg they just keep calling day after day, scam about my intetnet...
when I answered with a business name they hung up. I call them back and got the optus advisers the mobile disconnected. Sounds fishey Foreign accent (possibly Indian) Problem with internet - advised I don't have a computer - hung up Caller: Female purporting to be from Telstra technical department
Claims to be ringing regarding my "Telstra" internet connection - obvious scam so hung up.
Caller: TeamViewer Scammers
Advising me that they were calling from Telstra and my internet had been hacked. They asked me to log into TeamViewer which allows them to access my computer like they are sitting at it. They then steal passwords and any other information they can. I spent half an hour on the phone pretending to do as they ask. So dodgey. All Indian/Sri Lankin speaking representatives. BEWARE!
Spoke in another language (possible Indian) very quickly and then just said "BYE" and hung up... weird
Caller: Indian Male voice
Called explaining they were from telstra and wanted to speak to me about our internet connection. I told him I don't have internet. Not to be deterred, he said that "you must have it because you are registered with us. How do you explain that?" I suggested that I didn't have to explain anything to him. He said, "well, you're registered". I asked where was I regisistered, how and by whom. He seemed to get angry and raised his voice. Then I kinda let fly a bit and suggested he didn't call me back.
