trying to sell service on behalf of telstra
Caller: 'Pulse' (?) a partner of Telstra to see if we were happy with our services
They called my landline (that currently is faulty so they wouldn't have got through and then immediately rang my mobile and then my husband's mobile. I answered my husband's and that's when 'she' told me who was calling. When I said, no problems I am already dealing with my local Telstra service, she wanted me to just take a few minutes to answer a few questions. I said "Given I don't know your business, thank you but no thank you". Of course she then said OK and hung up!
Caller: (08) 6228 4163
Omg, these guys have been calling me for a few days. I answer and it was Telstra asking me about a new business plan? Sounded legit as he had both my numbers on record and my bills?
I gave him all my details to update a phone and plan. Including my address, birthdate, my licence number and Medicare number.. Is it legit or do I need to take action, every thread I’ve come across is quiet alarming!!!
I rang back the number (08) 6228 4163 once but got disconnected Calling just about every day the previous fortnight and do not leave a message. My number is silent and I only answer if it is someone in my contact list. Time to block yeah, when they asked me what I was wearing... I hung up. Constant missed calls - rings twice then stops.
Caller: (08) 6228 4163
Calling me persistently every day for a week now...
After the day prior making a change to my telstra account, they were unaware that this had occurred. I told them I wasn't comfortable giving them any information. Very Suspicious. If they call again I will block Caller: (08) 6228 4163
They said on behalf of Telstra. However having had dealings with resellers before I have no interest in them.
I have blocked the number but they keep trying to call every day or two.
Said they were TSA from Telstra business. Serial calls. Wanted to confirm DOB but they wouldn’t tell me , wanted me to volunteer info. Totally dodgy. Scam. Caller: (08) 6228 4163
I have this number listed as ‘cold caller’ having previously spoken with it, they claim to be acting on behalf of Telstra, they usually call first my mobile then my wife’s, despite having been asked to remove our numbers from their database. We both have them listed as ‘cold caller’ so we don’t bother answering.
happened to me too! They Left an unintentional message of them having office banter about a vibrator and batteries. Nice work. Caller: Didn't answer, wasn't in my contacts
Blocked the number, reassured by reading everyone's comments
serial pest - 8 calls today over a 3 hour period. Caller: Offered to help connect to NBN
English sounding guy, seemed genuine, but hard to tell if he was for real or not as there are so many scams out there.
Claimed he was calling on behalf of Telstra to assist in connecting to NBN
LOL, if it is Telstra, then clearly they no longer know I'm now with Vodafone! This number called my phone and my wife's phone within minutes. No answer. Scam Absolutely a pest. Fake, scam.
