beware scam call about telstra internet Still doing the same scam on this number in June. Great to have Reverseaustralia to alert people to these bogus calls. We no longer answer interstate or unknown mobiles on the landline but we avert dvt's by getting up and down to the phone! :) Its a scam, looks to me thought that they have used someone elses phone number, has anyone contacted the owner to let them know that their number has been used?? Rang twice on Land Line which is a silent number and has been for 12 years part of NBN package now saying they were from telstra and the ip address was set at public not private.
so my internet was unsafe.
have called a couple of times i just hang up
beware they have an Indian type accent to add authenticity to the call!!!!!
Scam call. They have foreign accents. They ask you if you are the owner of the internet accounts and then go into a spiel about your exchange being upgraded so that your internet will be running faster. They use IT words and numbers to try to trick you into believing that they are legitimate. I started asking them questions about which exchange the work was done on and what the result will be. I must have annoyed them so they hung up. Better me wasting their time than they scamming other people. They hadn't asked me for any personal information but maybe I hadn't given them the chance. Watch out! said they were from telstra Indian sounding scammer. Said he was from Telstra and they were upgrading the line. Wanted me to turn my computer on. I told him I didn’t have one, only iPad. He was a bit taken aback then asked me to log on to my iPad at which point I hung up on him. I work for a car company and we had a call today, knew it was a SCAM.
They wanted me to get up my IP address as they said it had been changed from private to public.
They asked if I was the main resident of this address and I said you have called a business, can you prove to me you're from Telstra.
Hung up on me.
Caller: Said they were from Telstra technical dept
Said he was from Telstra tech department re my internet and broadband connection .Wanted me to check my router as I had allegedly been getting flooded with outside influences to my IP address.Told him I would not discuss this with him and I would call Telstra myself to check the information.
