Telstra NBN Just phoned Telstra and spoke at length to their Faults/Unwelcome Calls area. As I suspected, this number is not Telstra; who advised that it is an internet based call and IS A SCAMMER! So either don't answer it, and don't give out any information whatsoever. Telstra representative told me that callers from (08) 6228 4112 are trolls, calling in an attempt to get people's financial/personal details (obviously working on the "one born every minute" principle) Tell them to go fk themselves! Got a missed call from this number too. Lucky I look it up here. :) Blocked. Calling constantly and hanging up when I answer, even if I answer immediately when it rings. I rang them back, and it says it is Telstra NBN. Spoke to the person and he claimed that their external call service rings several numbers at once, and whoever answers their phone first is the one that they will speak to, all other numbers will be hung up on. I called bullsh*t, and he said if I swear at him again he will terminate the call. Requested he remove my number from their system and he said it would take a day or so. I don't believe they are legitimately Telstra, nor do I believe that my number will be removed. A holes. This is from an outbound telemarketing centre subcontacting for Telstra. Employees have access to your account and have a Telstra identication number that usually starts with D and has 6 numbers. There is an office in Brisbane but the head office is in WA thats why it comes up with an 08 number. If you're not sure who the person is, ask for their Telstra identification number and ask them to put nites on the system and call Telstra to confirm. When you call Telstra, that agent will be able to see the notes It's not Telstra - They have confirmed it has nothing to do with them. It is very likely a scam, I have reported to scamwatch. AFP, TIO, Telstra all couldn't give a sh*t. Hopefully they get shut down. Second missed call in two days. Thanks for the heads up guys! Ignored this number and checked here first. Just as well They keep calling claiming to be Telstra NBN. The also call a few times hoping that you will identify yourself so the can address you by name when they call again; I fell for that one. Thanks for this information everyone. Have been bugged by this number for two weeks now! Never answering the call. They called me today 10/1/17 - re: NBN and said he was from Telstra - he new both my old and new address and as I am interested in bundling my phones, internet and Foxtel I thought I would get a quote - he popped me on hold then hung up - I obviously wanted too much info - sadly he did get my date of birth... Same as everyone else. Block their number and never answer their call. If you have a relationship with the company and have not opted out of their market they are also exempt from the law... Ditto
Told him I was busy and he said "I'll make sure you get a call back"
I checked the number and thought "I will code you in my phone not to answer"
I just got a call from this number today. 18/03/17 lucky I didn't give them info and hung up Getting a call everyday for the past 11 days let it ring out never answer suspect it is computer generated. Scammers If Telstra knows they are scammers and they also know their phone number, thus they can be traced, then surely the police should be contacted to take action. No action and they play us for suckers, come on! continually calls. . leaves no msg Garbage If it is Telstra NBN they can stick it up their jacksy. I pay 22cents for an outgoing call and they want 55cents to connect a call then pay by the minute for the NBN. Call that progress? I need my phone, not an online entertainment experience.
