Caller: Telstra Scammer
Recorded message telling me that telstra had detected fraudulent activity and to press 1 to connect to the technician. OLD SCAM, SLIGHTLY NEW MESSAGE. Get a life you morons. Death awaits you.
Worst of all when these scammers call they have already hacked into your phone. They are based in Mandurah WA. There is a charge if 82 cents on the phone bill of everyone they call. I've tried contacting Telstra the real Telstra and they cannot trace these people (In reply to Anonymous May 24, 2019 - Upped the ante)
Feel free to ignore them if you like, but since they are claiming they have the legal power/authority to Arrest you, I'd call your local police and see what they have to say.
(in reply to Anonymous May 24, 2019 Death Threat):
If they did, please call the police immediately. I'm pretty sure there's something in the normal Telstra phone books that say to do that.
They made a death threat to my 87-year-old mother. Very disturbing. 100% scammers ask them for you telstra security code they are gone immediately. another caller who did not leave a message SCAMMER These stupid, persistent lowlife scammers, calling from what are doubtless spoofed numbers, are now threatening us with arrest for fraud or something instead of telling us we'll have our internet disconnected if we don't press 1 to speak to a technician. (I only hear part of the call because the robot-with-no-brain speaks through my answering machine's recorded greeting.) How I wish we could instantly consign these pests to perdition. Caller: Supposedly Telstra Techical Dept
Another SCAM - re FRAUD. "Press 1 immediately or you will be arrested re Fraud". Approach is getting quite aggressive!
Caller: Telstra scammer
Malware -internet will be disconnected in hours if not corrected. Scammers.
Caller said it was Telstra calling and I was involved in fraudulent activity that could lead to my being arrested if I didn't answer the phone. Threatening tone to the voice. Claimed to be from Telstra and that fraudulent activity had been detected and unless I pressed 1 to talk to Telstra I would be arrested! Claimed to be from Telstra and said there was fraudulent activity on my account and then threatened if I didn’t press 1 I would be charged with fraud this is now getting out of hand Telstra needs to do something They've upped the ante, today's call had us being arrested if we didn't press "1". No message left. Scammer pretending to be from Telstra.
Internet will be disconnected unless you press 1 to speak to a Telstra Technician.
Missed call , caller did not leave a message only rang for short time not long enough
for machine to pick up. I would not have answered it anyway as number not recognised.
Caller: Who cares
Thanks, just checking who tried to call my home number, our phone cuts any call when detects that it is not in the address book.
no message Caller: Scam
Picked up and recorded message said they were Telstra and I had malware on my computer, so please press 1.......so I hung up 😡
