    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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?????
