Caller: Supposed to be an IT Company telling you your computer is being hacked
They will ask you to perform an event viewer task on your computer. obviously their will be some errors or warning caused by either DNS or some trusted application you installed on your computer. They will then proceed to tell you these errors are because hackers are trying to get into your computer and will them try to get your personal information.
Caller: Bogus IT company
Told me he was from an IT company and was I in front of my computer. I told him yes, but as a practising witch I could sense impending evil and so concocted a karma spell that would forever bestow terrible luck and misfortune on the next person with dishonest intent towards me. He hung up before I was able to tell him how to reverse it.
Caller: Tom Smith with an Indian Accent
This moron who said he was from Telstra saying I had an infected computer. Same as all the other posts on this page. I downloaded an ap and played him sirens, farts, explosions, pig grunts etc. He listened for a while then hung up. He rings me quite a bit but never talks now. He knows its me and I have my ap ready to play to him. He only rings on the landline and I find it quite amusing. I have found a new sound box ap that plays someone spewing and someone having a crap. Thats what hes getting next time he rings
Caller: (03) 9133 6542
Rings often, usually around the middle of the day period.
One of the many scammers on the Landline who ring my number.
Minimum benefit to me is that it proves the line is still functional otherwise it never rings.
Free included line in a Telstra package.
Asked me if I was the computer owner. Then asked if I was in front of it. I was asked what key is on the bottom left of the keyboard. I said ctrl. Then asked what was the next key and the next. Which happens to be the windows key.
I was instructed to depress the window key and the letter ‘R’ at the same time for at least 3 seconds.
I was asked what I could see on my screen.... I straight away asked him what I was suppose to be seeing on my screen... there were a few low key bleeps then he said thank you then hung up without answering my question...
I am certain there was two males on the conversation as I could hardly understand him. Then a beep noise in the background came a clearer line and a guy I could understand more....
I tried to call back. But as usual busy line...
My computer is still switch off... I never even started it up....
Caller asked for owner of the computer in the house. Caller: Scammer
Rings at least 10x a day. Scammer.
Caller: Sam from VT Support
Wanted to 'talk to me about my computer'. Claimed to be calling from Brisbane, despite the Vic phone number on call display. Eventually I just hung up.
That was hilarious. I kept them on the phone for about 15 mins. Eventually she swore at me, called me names and hung up. Hung up as soon as I answered with business nasme. Caller: "it security"

Heavily accented man, said that he was getting notifications to say there was issues with my computer. I told him that I didnt have a computer and I knew he was a scammer. He said no scam. I said I dont have a computer and he hung up
Overseas scam callers "Microsoft / Telstra / NBN / BT / Visa / ATO / Citrix (Insert name here) Technical Support” for virus and internet problems from overseas using a spoofed national number. Diverted to Lenny the answering machine, I hope they enjoyed the chat with him.
Me too, 3 calls in 2 days. %$^& NUISANCE, WHAT IS TELSTRA DOING ABOUT THESE MORONS USING A TELSTRA PHONE PAID FOR BY A PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL. FED UP. GIVE THEIR NUMBER TO THE POLICE AND LET THEM DEAL WITH IT. THEIR PHONE NUMBER IS (03) 9133 6542. I stopped one from calling by blowing a whistle very very loudly into the mouthpiece of the phone and hung up. Did the trick and I wonder how much it hurt his ears, NOT. Hilarious! Thank you. You have brightened my day you evil creature. I didn't answer the call but will now add it to my contacts as KARMA The caller hung up as soon as I answered. Caller: SCAMMERS
