Caller: TSA telco group
Called the number back, Auto message saying thank you for calling TSA Telco Group, We are authorized re seller of telstra products.... Than i hung up
Caller: (07) 3214 0635
This caller keeps calling my mobile broadband router, how in blazes do they get the number for a mobile broadband service?
Rang me a number of times. No message. Rang them back from a different number. A message says you have rang TSA from Telstra. Sounds dodgy. hung up. I answered, they hung up. this number has called 5 times in two days. I refuse to answer numbers from unknown source, as no one calls the house phone. it's only for the kids to call us. Still at it. Didn't recognize number, so didn't answer. No message left. Looked it up on reverse number site. Call was to mobile. Called saying they are working for Telstra and wanting to see if they could give me a better package. Wanted my date of birth to confirm who I was. I refused. If they are really working for Telstra they likely already have it. I said I had signed for a package and it was nowhere near the expiry date. They gave some obscure reason why it could be altered. I said NBN was coming and that would require a new package anyway. They had another reason why it could be changed easily. So I said not interested now and the woman got irritated and rudely hung up. Foreign accent. Keeps phoning my mobile and does not say anything. A scammer no doubt. Caller: I don't know
Identified number from answering machine and can now see obviously a scam. When I know these calls are scams, I send the number to ACCC Scamwatch. I do hope they followup, and get rid of these pests.
Caller: Don't answer landline
Caller doesn't leave any message. Get frequent calls from this and various numbers either wanting me to sign up to NBN or saying I will be cut off from the internet if I don't do a fix "NOW" (in that tone).
Like many others, I don't answer to numbers I'm not familiar with. This number rings nearly every day, but I ignore it. Just got one, but the first thing that get me my guar on was how unprofessional he sounds, I call telstra before and they all speak sunny shiney positive tone. then he actually have my bill detail!!!! And when he starts asking my DOB I just tell him I will call telstra back.
But why would they got my bill detail
Caller: Scammers from India again
I don't know if my information was sold by Telstra, it was stolen from their Indian call centre or if it is the same call centre that Telstra uses looking for an extra profit but I get sick of blocking calls every day.
Caller: they said they where from Telstra
Wanting to know if I am happy with my plan and they could make it cheaper. I told this man that i was happy with my plan.
Caller: Scam Caller
They keep ringing. Like at least every day for 2 weeks. I've blocked the number from my mobile, but get the Hang Up Call notification on my MacBook and phone. I now have a list of numbers for Unknown Scammer (the name I've given the caller) so I can keep blocking. It's a pain but at least they aren't getting through to me anymore.
Caller: Clever scam!
Caller said he was from Telstra in Brisbane. Number seems to be from Brisbane.
Call centre noise in the background sounds legit.
He asked to verify my name, and knew it as Michael.... so even more legit.
Said he wanted to review my current plan and see if they could offer anything better - OK so far.
Then he indicated the calls were recorder for training purposes - totally legit.
BUT THEN - he asked for my date of birth for verification purposes before proceeding with any account information - RED FLAG!!
If I ring Telstra, yeah, they will ask for this crap. But Telstra doesn't ring me to ask who I am so we can get into my account info!
It was pretty damn clever sounding, so don't let them catch you off guard!
She knew our last Bill amount. Wanted my date of birth. I told her I don’t give my date of birth to somebody I do not know. If she knew my last bill amount from Telstra she should have the other information. Told her we are happy with our plan and phone ourselves if we need help.
don't answer spam callers 😡 Rings every day in early afternoon. I don't answer unknown numbers, so it gets picked up and immediately put down as the phone rings out otherwise and is extremely annoying.
