Rec'd multiple calls from (02) 8205 3150 during the past 3 - 4 hours - we screen our calls, so did not pick-up. Caller lets phone go thru to msgebank but does not leave msge. Have dialed back - number is disconnected. Reported to Scamwatch. Sick of this sh*t! Caller: Started by saying they were from NBN then saying they were from telstra
I get pleasure from pulling on their dirty pakistani twoggle allowing them to think im falling fro their sh*t, I just piss them off till they hang up. They ask why i use the internet i tell them im addicted to midget indian porn.
Same story as others, ethnic threatening to cut my phone off if I don't press 1.
I now refuse to answer my phone after seven calls yesterday - it goes to my message machine and I screen calls.
Am told these are not real phone numbers, the ethnics use some sort of computer system.
I worry for people older than me who may get caught with these xxxxxxxx.
Caller: Foriegn accent Said his name was steven parker from telstra
said my ip was compromised go to website [my1p] to prove it- i did then i told him i have norton vpn & his website was wrong ---then i hung up
I use the Telstra Call Guardian 301 & the only way I know this number called me is because it shows up on a list of callers that aren't on my phones Contact list. The Call Guardian intercepts the call....I never hear a ring....& it tells the caller to announce themselves, then press #......If the caller ignores the prompt, the phone disconnects them, but if they record an announcement & press # at that time my phone will ring.....when I pick up the phone I hear their announcement. If I choose to answer the call & talk to them, I press 1, & the call is connected....If I don't want to talk to them, I press the block button & the caller will never be able to bother me ever again....they can never get through....they are blocked. If I block them by mistake, I can unblock their number, & the process would repeat as it did the first time they called, or I could completely unblock & put them on an always allow list which is as if they were on my contact list.....they would get right through......the great thing, either way, I completely controll access.....100% of the time.....Best phone I ever had....& cheap too!..... Caller: Nicole
The NBN call scam threatening to disconnect landline and internet in 24 hours if I don't press 1 for a technician.
We have already disconnected the landline to our home and connected to NBN. Somebody, somewhere ought to be able to trace these annoying, nuisance scam calls and put an end to them.
Ringing numerous times a day for days now. I screen my calls so I haven't answered, and they don't leave a voicemail message. So annoying and disruptive. Hang up after I answered. rang this week, as the call is flagged, i dont pick up, but they keep phoning, frequent (02) number scams screen calls pest calls are so frequent (02), i just dont pick up, I also have been getting numerous calls from "Nicole" & others from all over Australia. If I could just find a way to actually give them a blast it would make me feel better but I never go past the push one now as I know this is how they can get my number & use it for overseas calls. so annoying..why can't they be shutdown !!! Caller: Nicole from the Australian Broadband Network
Have had upwards of 100 calls from this same scam over the past few days. They claim to be from the NBN and are going to disconnect landline services. They are calling my place of work and as i'm reception I have to answer any call that comes through - so frustrating. They also keep changing their number or put it on anon so i have no way of telling without answering. :(
Caller: Computer generated female voice
Threatening to disconnect landline and Internet access in 24 hours, if I don't press '1" to speak to "the technician". Line then drops out.
Called his bluff and told him to get a real job and stop trying to scam people he then gave me a tirade of offensive abuse Caller: (02) 8205 3150
from 3 weeks ago every day this number called to my business number, it is frustrating, do not call us anymore
Multiple calls, looked at another site said it was skype call, indian accent scammer, Gupter said he was from Telstar and my Internet would be disconnected within 24 Hours.
I get at least one of these per day.
Just told this wanker to "Go forth and multiply" in not so pleasant terms and he hung up.
Hopefully now on a black list!!
Caller: Wasting my time
No one on the other end - getting sick of these numbers have managed to copy 4 phone calls all from varies numbers with the same response within the last half hour.
Surely something can be done to stop these callers.??
Caller: Scammer from call center - sounded from India or similar.
Told me he was from Telstra and they were going to cut off Internett tomorrow If I don't press 1 they are going to disconnect our internet connection. They knew our name and address???? What the hell is TELSTRA doing to stop these scams and nuisance calls.
Sound like mujahideen from India trying to sell NBN could not understand a word of what he said . He said my internet will stop by tomorrow, anyway what a whole lot of bullshxx.
