They have rang twice in a day but left no message. Had a call after another Telstra call so think they were genuine but when she wanted my drivers licence number and medicare number as well as other identification to send me a satchel to return a modem I said that they had our account number and address and why would they want any more ID? I am not happy about giving out more ID This is a scam. I do not even have a Telstra account. I made up fake details when asked to verify my account. I dragged the whole call out to about 15 minutes because I was driving my car and had time on my hands. I was told that I had outstanding accounts and could pay them over the phone. I pretended to be surprised that Telstra hadn't simply cut off my phone. I was sweet as pie all along. When it came time to give my CC details I simply said I can't do that while I'm driving but would pay my next bill on time in full and then hung up on them.
GOOD ADVICE: If any bank, phone company, or utility calls you and asks you to confirm your ID please do not. Instead, apologise politely and call back using the advertised phone number for that company. I've done this on several occasions when unusual transaction have triggered a call from Visa or Amex and both companies fully understand and have policies in place to permit this. Do not feel bad or worry what they might think. Always err on the side of caution.
I've received a few calls from this number. Immediately after the last one, there was an SMS from Telstra advising they were wanting to check that our details are correct on our account. Was the Telstra moving team. They were definitely legit. She didn't ask for any of my details (apart from confirming my name), and then talked about issues I had sent them in an email. I got $200 off my moving fee, so it was definitely worth answering (in my case at least) Its a scam, they are fishing for account information or some sort of identity stealing. Don't tell them anything. Ring Telstra direct on their advertised contact number if you need to. This is not how Telstra operates, they will send a letter in the mail. Once again - don't tell them anything! Rang at 6:30am in the blooming morning! Immediately looked up number on here to see most people say it's a legitimate Telstra number. What legitimate number for Telstra rings at THAT time of the morning!! Call was from Telstra moves team about a service I cancelled 4 months ago - genuine call but they are obviously not good with their information. Missed call when rang back get continuous music ??? Scammers Just called me today - left no message. Tried to call back after reading elsewhere that this is a Telstra service provider. They had no idea who the account holder was for the phone I was ringing from - sounds very dodgy. If this is supposed to be a legitimate Telstra service provider, then they are crap at their jobs or have access to crap information and Telstra should ditch them. They call leave a message to call Telstra credit management on a 1800 number, you ring them back, and afetr being transfered all over the place for 20 mins they finally say, we dont know why you were called, your account isnt due till ...... later in the month. The person calling and the ones I spoke to were all of indian descent. Well thats what you get when companies outsource jobs overseas. call from Telstra ok legitimate call from telstra Yeh same I'm on the phone to Telstra, on hold actually it's been over an hour, and I get a call.
Googled the number while on hold and came to this page.
f*ck Telstra and their stupid call center staff in Manila and whatever other third world sh*t hole.
I received an SMS from Telstra advising they would call shortly to verify my account details, and this is the number they called me on but left 1800 928 214 as return number Received multiple calls but no messages left. Number is now blocked. I too thought this number was suspicious, especially as they had contacted me and then proceeded to request my personal details for security purposes immediately. I ended the call then contacted Telstra on their 132200 number and found that it was a legit Telstra number in their technicians department. Can never be too cautious..... number ok This is a valid Telstra support number.
