looks like a scam. says I failed to pay Telstra. jokes on them,i don't pay Telstra. this is a 'fishing' text.
not from telstra. it's virus loaded..to install keystroke loggers.
I spoke to them. they don't have that no in their system.
they only send emergency texts. account related contact is only by automated voice mail.
Dont click on the links.. delete the text.
I received the exact same message....and I have also had a payment from Telstra after closing the account. Sounds very suspicious to me. They sent me the payment failure text. I reported them to Telstra with the number. I plan to report it to ACCC and Police. Hope someone catches them! Got this one the other day, confirmed with proper Telstra staff that it is a scam. Although now I am trying to figure out how they knew I paid my bill the day they messaged me......0_0 That is priceless and the wannabe chicks that are rough as guts deadset confuse nice also with stupid probably why so many get caught lol It’s a putrid cheap trick drug dealing hooker who thinks her smarts match her looks - you be the judge of a sad unwanted cheap smashed crab looking junkie trying to keystroke ya lol poor hooker get well soon 😂😂😂😂🙈🙈😜🤡💉💊 dealers are squealers lmao You don’t have to be a skinny drug f*cked head bobbling junkie to work out keystroking yes keystroking (for the red pleb) is as f*cked as it’s smashed crab head lol deported lol.

Claimed to be Telstra. Definite SCAM.
Do not hit links or respond to message. Telstra account payment scam. Delete message and block number. However it was addressed in my first and middle name. So where did they get this info? I had recently being online chatting to Telstra about getting my credit refunded to me and was asked for my driver's licence number as id. I refused and said that I had never been asked this before. Next day get a different scam call and now this today. Telsta call centre appears to be passing on info to scammers. Caller: Supposedly Telstra
Obviously a scam. Telstra please investigate and stop it before less savvy people are caught.
Have been in touch with Telstra as I too got this text message about my recent payment not going through. I also got a email from no-reply @ telstra.com.au advertising shower heads??? I have asked telstra to let me know how my personal information has been given out Caller: Scammer
I received the text, and have been having constant issues with Telstra lately and without looking at the url properly replied 1 to receive a call.
The call then asked to confirm my name based on a pre-recorded voice saying a name.
Realised it was a scam and hung up then blocked.
Same Text SMS message just came thru , My account with Telstra is Blank . Blocked number Says they are from Telstra and I haven't paid my bill, but don't use my name, use my ex's. My phone is in my name, not my ex's. This is definitely a scam. They've sent a message today and one in Oct 2018. says my payment failed for Telstra but my account is in credit and no emails or letters or other communication from them saying the payment failed so this is a scam Caller: 0427 855 172
Got this message - your recent payment to Telstra has failed. Please pay the full amount at Telstra.com/myaccount or reply
Hi A*****, your recent payment to Telstra has failed. Please pay the full amount at Telstra.com/myaccount or reply “1” 8AM-8PM Mon/Fri AEST if you need to talk to us.
Received this sms a couple of days after paying my bill. Checked my bank account and my Telstra account and both indicated payment was successful. Spoke to Telstra and they confirmed that my bill had been paid and there was nothing outstanding according to their records. Typically messages I have received from Telstra don’t show the number but comes up as TELSTRA. Don’t click on the links. If in doubt, contact Telstra directly.
I got the same message repeatedly just recently - was having problems with my bill at the same time - Telstra couldn't tell me if it was a scam but could assure me that my bill had been paid. I tried texting them back but it just replied that they could not understand my message - have now blocked the number. But how did the scammer know my first name and that I was having problems with my bill?????
