I called back number (08) 6228 4108 reached IVR for a company called . Caller: unknown on (08) 6228 4108
Daily calls from this number.
Once left a msg on message bank with no actual voice speaking just silence. That now hasn't happened again but still getting calls.
Somehow they now have my family members mobile numbers asking for me.
It is not a scamming call its Telstra calling you back about something to do with you account with them....perhaps an existing order or issue with a current service.
Missed call on my mobile from this number. Recognise it as a nuisance call as I have had many from this number on my landline in the past (which I haven't answered). Reading through the comments on this page it is no coincidence that I was talking to Telstra this morning. How come Telstra has done nothing about this? Caller: Claimed to be from TSA
Rang Telstra to organise NBN on Friday and within half an hour my landline which I only leave plugged in cause my elderly mother doesn't like call mobile starts ringing. Happened 3 times with 'private number' showing plus 'overseas call' and when it went to message bank hung up. Today my mobile rings asking if I placed an NBN order and I confirmed and he then wants full name with DOB. I said I'm not giving you my DOB for identification as I have confirmed an order was placed and you have my first name and you should have those details and you rang my mobile. Said he would lose his job if he didn't get my date of birth. I said you tell me my details since you rang my phone and I will confirm and he said he couldn't for security reasons. Will call Telstra Monday to confirm and advise for privacy and security reasons I am not giving out my date of birth.
SAID THEY KNOW I HAD BEEN TEXTING TELSTRA TO PUT AN ORDER IN. WOULDN'T TELL ME WHAT I ORDERED. THEY HAD MY FULL NAME AND I REFUSED TO GIVE HIM MY DATE OF BIRTH. (08) 6228 4108

As it turns out though, I set up a contract with Aussie Broadband NBN yesterday afternoon (currently have Telstra ADSL) and just after,called Telstra re. moving my father's phone from a landline to NBN. Given all the posts here, interesting coincidences! These scammers are obviously getting information about people who have recently ordered the NBN.

Some how these people get hold of numbers from Telstra. Them them to get lost if the number calls.
Caller: TSA regarding about my Telstra order
rang 2x in less than 30 seconds one ring and hangup, I called back, and they say it's from TSA regarding about my Telstra order, i said i haven't order anything from telstra so they say just disregard this call
Called said they were from Telstra about an order I placed. Had my name but couldn't tell me about the order. Asked for my date of birth which I did not give them. I said I would call Telstra direct to complete my NBN order. Called me twice today. I called the number it rings and then goes blank no sound! SCAM! I ordered a mobile plan from Telstra earlier in the week. This number called me today and said she was from Telstra and it had now been decided that they needed a payment 3 months in advance to process the payment ($150). I told her there was no mention of this at the time of my order and she said it had been since decided... told her to cancel my order as it sounded scammy and she had no hesitation and hung up pretty quickly. Will check in with Telstra to see if this was legit. Caller: A scam group based in Australia
Very discerning. Started with “hi Im from a company, with Telstra.” Very confident. Then tried to say my internet would be cut off in 90 days. New nbn is here. But I knew from my own information that it would take about a good year or so for my internet to become a problem. So why call me amd say “90days and you’ll have no internet”. THEY WERE trying to make me think I would be without internet, in the coming days, if I didn’t sign up there and then. But I knew Telstra wouldn’t do that to me. BUT WHEN THEY EVEN ASKED MY DAte if birth to confirm, then EVEN MY DETAILS. I KNEW they were scamming. I even said “Telstra would never give my information out to a company, or ask me for my details.” “I received a letter saying we had a year for internet change. THEN he got rude. He was a western Australian I think due to the way he started to talk. The slang and dialect. He was definitely an Aussie. And he got aggressive. Started threatening me that I’d have no internet and to pay him right away. That being was from Telstra and trying to get me good internet. That’s when I hung up. I’ve also alerted everyone I know, put it to Telstra and SCAM WATCH, Scam alert too online. Just to let them know, Facebook post to your friends and family and for them to share. and block their numbers. Now variations of their number can come though so becareful. With a different end digit. And they can be confident. So hang up whenever you’re not sure or feel it’s weird.If you’re worried about your internet..YOU Can ring your provider YOURSELF personally, TO CHECK. Don’t trust anyone CALLING you!
Female rang elderly mother on landline claiming phone would be cut off - I phoned Telstra on my TPG mobile to check how this could be the case and discovered a scam. Scammers (female) rang again at 6.20pm tonight to my mobile.
Keep calling my 94 year old mother and asking for me, I note they also have called my mobile 4 times today and called my home phone 3 times yesterday. When I called them back claimed they are trying to process a Telstra order. Advised them I don't have one and told them not to call me again. They no longer call my landline but continue to call my mobile and my elderly mothers landline. They also asked for her pension number, I have advised her not to give out any information to anyone by telephone and I will report this lot to the Telecommunications Ombudsman
Caller: TSA staff
They are TSA company, work on behalf of Telstra. TSA is outsourcing company based on Philippine, even tough their number is 08 (Perth, WA). Last week I ordered Home bundle ADSL2 from Telstra. So far they only asked order reference number, name & DOB to verify my call back in order to check my order with Telstra.
That is the only info I know about this number.
One day after contacting Telstra about NBN male caller rang asking for credit card details as trying to convince us there is a cash back when purchasing through Telstra. Was quite rude and very pushy when of course we declined and said "Just go get your card!!!" "How am I to put money into your account!!!" Promptly terminated call. Call originated from Perth WA. rings no longer than 10 seconds but if answered phone is dead. 1 minute after doing a Foxtel by Telstra exit survey -- and very specifically asking NOT to be contacted -- this number called. The survey company promised not to pass on my details (I opted "no" when asked) ... liars. Outrageous. They said T&T on behalf of Telstra. I find this a bit weird as I ordered NBN through Telstra and they said it was about my order, and asked for my DOB. A bit suss.
