Apparently calling from the Telstra technical division about my internet. We don't have any accounts with telstra
Caller: Supposedly from Telstra
Indian sounding woman telling me to switch my computer on as there was an issue with security and she would walk me thru it. I told her I didn't intend switching my computer back on and I couldn't understand half of the words she was saying and she just hung up on me...…….later on I tried dialing that number and it said it wasn't connected. Surprise! surprise! The only good thing about the awful thing that is happening around the world right now, is that all my many call-centre callers (that I kept their numbers marked DO NOT ANSWER) had just STOPPED RINGING...…….YAAAY! Seems they are starting again now unfortunately. So flipping annoying!
Caller: ‘Jennifer’ from 😉...’Telstra’🙄
10/09/20... has called four times today...long pause... then... ’hello?.. hello??.. I kept just hanging up on them... but then half hour later they rang again... and I let her talk.. I’m Jennifer from Telstra.. you have serious problems with your internet & computer security...’ ME:...🤦🏻♀️ “the ONLY person who is going to have serious problems is YOU IF YOU CALL THIS NUMBER AGAIN!!”... then I hung up!... soooo satisfying! 😉
Pilbara Region of West Australia -
They rang then hung up when answering machine started – no message left - Number Blocked now
They rang both my mobile and home phone numbers over the last 2 days
Am working from home due to COVID so thought it was a client calling me - they didn't leave a message but I tried calling back - was told "The number you have called is not connected, please check the number and try again" Obviously a scammer. Caller: Scammer
Yet another call from this number, so annoying when you only have a landline and cannot block them . . Must admit this time I swore at them, have had four in the past two days . . So fed up . .
Calls me once or more a night, finally I have blocked the number, they never leave a message. My Android phone marks it as "POTENTIAL FRAUD" 2 calls today. The second call I asked "If you believe that I am a astronaut then I will believe that your from Telstra".... hangs up. same issue with a Telstra man Edwin Wilson..when I said I work for telstra, threatened me that he would come to my house, bash me up and feed me to the dogs Caller: (03) 9879 72538
I received a call from a very very noisy call centre on my home phone. Had been ignoring them but they kept setting the answering machine off and waking my husband who is suffering from cancer. He said (in a very heavy Indian accent) that his name was Ryan Wilson and my internet was in dire straits. I asked if it was a scam he said no. I asked for a call back number and his Telstra ID no. He gave me (08) 8151 0197 to call back on and said his ID was DA1449. I hung up and tried to contact Telstra but gave up waiting.
Phoned 2.00 pm - we were on another call - wouldn't leave message Caller: "Selena" from "Telstra"
Her: This is Selena from Telstra, I am calling about your Internet connection
Me: What internet connection?
Her: Your internet connection?
Me: What internet connection?
Caller: (03) 8797 2538
They called me, I asked how I could help (business) and they said "you don't need to help me'.... and hung up.... obviously a scam as the number is not found if you call back. How do these people sleep at night?
I've received 4 calls today from these scammers. Thanks for this. Did not answer. Scam call supposedly from Telstra wanting access to my computer Caller: "Telstra Internet Services" (male, don't recall the name)
Didn't catch the name, but clearly I'm not the only one with a hearing problem… approximate transcript:
Answered 2020-08-28 02:07:38Z
Him: (gives name and introduces himself as being from Telstra)
Me: (interrupting) Who do you wish to speak to?
Him: I am (… repeats speel …)
Me: (interrupting again), No, I didn't ask who YOU were, I asked who you wished to speak to…
Him: Please hold

So still using this number.
This number has called at least eight times over the last 10 days but does not leave message on answering machine A bunch of low life scammers after hacking into your computer to steal your personal information. Report them to authority. Caller: Scammer Telstra technical bs
I recently changed over to nbn. The same day the scammers started. They obviously have access to Telstra clients information. Indian first five times was a man. Now a woman calling. I said give it a rest I’m not interested in your scam. She said I will be calling you again tomorrow. FML hope they get Covid and die
