The lady said she was from Telstra. Apparently someone was using my internet. The lady wanted me to log onto my laptop to assist me. I said "I don't think so". She hung up on me. Called the number back and the message said that the number was disconnected and not complete. Man (with India accent) offered to help with my failing computer. Hung up when I started asking questions. Caller: (02) 9621 5283
Scam of THE WORST kind. Don't ever answer, just block this number. It's not Telstra. Just don't answer numbers you don't recognise, it's pretty simple. If you do it's your problem!
Caller: I don't know some guy with a heavy Indian accent
He said he is from NBN and wanted me to log on to "run" and entered some instruction. I refused to do so and he got angry. I hung up on him.
A man called me from "telstra", he wanted to check my NBN speed. Firstly I am not a Telstra customer and do not have NBN. When I told him he will be recorded and reported he told me that he will be cutting off my internet service. Sounds like scammers.
