    I've just had the same phone call, so I'll now keep phoning them to keep bugging then, and wasting their time, because if they are talking to me they are not scamming someone else, PAYBACK!!!!

    Same. I've had these guys ring a couple of times. The account is not in my name, but I'm authorized. When I ask them what they have for my details....strangely enough they don't have any!

    SCAM SCAM SCAM!!! Man with a thick indian accent claiming to be from 'telstra technical support' called to say my internet had been hacked and that the hackers were going to release all of my private information and details to 'the world'.
    Was 'phoney' from the minute i answered a number with 'no caller ID'. Asked for the blokes return number (which he gave this one) and he also gave me a 'employee ID number'.
    Hope these horrible people don't get in touch with the elderly who might fall for this bullsh*t

    Had a call from Asian sounding woman who said her name was Mary Watson saying my computer was not working as it should, I asked what was wrong given no definite answer. She told me to ring back on this number but I gave it a real miss....obviously a scam.

    Received a call from this number. Similar to others here, claiming to be from "Telstra Technical Department". Very strong, possibly Indian, accent. I did not understand what he was saying but figured that it may have something to do with the internet connection, hacking, or whatever. There was a terrible background noise and when I said I really could not hear him, he started yelling and became quite abusive. I told him I'd ring Telstra to make inquiries so he gave me this number and I then just hung up before he could get another word in. The first call was followed by four others which I did not answer. The calling number display displayed "Private number".

    Callers purporting to be from Telstra, with Indian accent, tell you that there is a problem with your internet (whether service is Telstra or Optus or any company) are scammers who say they need to scam your computer for virus etc. Just hang up. These guys will tell you all sorts of stories to establish credibility. If you follow their instructions then you will be told your computer needs to be scanned by Microsoft or the like. Whilst this is happening they corrupt your computer by placing a password in the power up function. Now they try get you to pay a small repair fee to Microsoft via using your credit card online. Once they have that information your credit card is "theirs" and away goes all your money. If you get too far along the scam and they tell you they have control of your computer and try to extort you to hand over credit card info, still hangup and get a local computer geek to fix the power-up problem - it doesn't take long.

    yes same as everyone else had the same story I led them on for 20 minutes then said I wanted to confirm who they are & would call them back was given this number said I'd call back he asked will I be calling back using this number I said yes & rang from a number blocking my number from being sent & they didn't answer the call . Now they are repeatedly calling me back on the original number how may times are they going to keep trying this scam with me I have had this same scam tried with me many dozens of times & have abused them led them on & done so many different things you would think they would keep a record of the people that know they are a scam

    Pretty much the same experience as everyone else here. A man with a thick Indian accent and a noisy phone line said he was a Telstra technician informing me that our computer is being hacked and that the line is corrupting their service. On questioning he gave me this phone number and an employee ID no T940711. As always, pretty insistent and claiming an urgent need to deal with the matter.

    How do we get rid of these people registered for do not call and still get calls from these people. Gave me number and ID but when I asked her for details of which internet account she was referring to she had no idea. as I have different accounts. If you are a technician you should know whether . I am on NBN or other or you shouldn't be a technician. I am concerned with this as I registered both my elderly parents and myself with do not call register and they may feel they are protected -will lodge another complaint about them
    To get rid of these parasites you are all are eligible to lodge a complaint if:
    your number has been on the Do Not Call Register for more than 30 days and you receive an unsolicited telemarketing call or marketing fax
    If you receive a telemarketing call (even if your number isn’t on the Do Not Call Register):
    Take time lodge a complaint and protect the vulnerable these people are praying on

    An "Andrew Simons" with an Indian accent from "Telstra" called regarding our internet problems with Telstra. We aren't with Telstra in any form, therefore could not have any problems. I was in a playful mood however, so strung him along. He provided his employee ID (QT0870) and a contact number for Melbourne VIC headquarters, this number (03) 9015 4912), without me even asking. He tried to get me to open up the 'Run' application in Windows to give him control of my PC. I hung up mid convo. He called back three times, and after trying to ignore them, someone else finally picked up saying it was AFP. He said he had a crime he was going to commit. He was going to rape a woman in India. After hanging up on that call, he rang back AGAIN, asking if it was the Australian Federal Police. Putting on a child's voice, I said he had the wrong number. He must've been so confused because he never called back. It just shows the lengths they'll go to...

    Pretty much same as the others reported here. Indian accent, noisy background. A variation I don't think has been mentioned is that "Alicia (or something like that) Smith" gave me her "employee number", D044244. I said I'd like to ring Telstra and check. She said that if I had my computer near, I could somehow check a number known only to Telstra that would confirm that she was calling from Telstra. I said I wasn't going to do that and we parted company.
