07/09/21, received a call from (02) 7251 9500, claiming to be from Telstra and that my NBN connection has been compromised. "Apparently", my VPN is on a public network and not private. They hung up once I asked them some bamboozling technical questions. Didn't leave a message Did not answer the phone. Assume it was a spam caller. Caller: Scammer
Telstra home Internet / NBN scam
Got the same call saying from Telstra his name was Mark Wilson and said my internet was compromised. Once I said I’ll call Telstra myself, he proceeded to tell me his employee number. I said this is a scam & then he hung up 🤷🏻♀️ Standard scammer fare......I answered the call and it sounded like it was being made in a busy call centre. Nobody spoke and it disconnected after ten seconds. I looked the number up here and it definaely sounds like a scam. Called stating that they are with Telstra and they have noticed my NBN is running slowly. Told them I'm not with Telstra and they hung up. Scam caller Caller: Scammer 100%
Said they were from Telstra and somethings wrong with my internet. Very persistent that I had internet when I told them I didn’t, hung up.
First time said Telstra. I hung up. Repeated calls so nice then. Doesn’t leave message. They are very persistant ringing different times of the day .I never answer Caller: Allegedly Amazon Prime
The lady asked if I wished to cancel my Amazon Prime account otherwise a fee of $189 would be debited to my account. As I didn't have a Prime acct she continued to say that our phone number was linked to a Prime acct. I asked her where she was ringing from replying that she was from Amazon Prime. I asked if she was calling from Australia as tge number is an Aust. no. Yes, she said. She insisted that I must have an account for the number she rang me on was linked to the Prime acct. Not being sure whether my husband had a Prime account she persisted asking me to go to his computer and she would walk me through. No, thank you. I just hung up. Later I rang the number back using a prefix before it to hide my number. A male recorded voice said that their line was busy but to go to a citizens' website in UK for more information! I didn't catch the full website. Certainly a scam.

Missed call - did not leave a message
another scammer with call center noise in background Caller: Claimed to be NBN
Received a cakll on our home line bya person named "Jenny", with a distinctively sub-continent accent, claiming to be from NB and advising that we had an issue with a internet speed. Very impolitely told them where to go, hung up & blocked number plus have reported to Scam Watch
Wanting to connect to my internet, mentioned password
Caller: Male with Indian accent
Told me my account had been hacked $2600. I don’t even have that in the bank. Wanted to know if I did phone or internet banking. I said none of these. He asked how I check my bank. I said I have statements sent out. He then disconnected the call.
I just had the same as you. The female was hopeless. Wanted me to put my mobile on handsfree and follow her directions. I said "no", not going to input stuff that a hacker wants me to type in. She seemed taken aback that I "called her out" so bluntly, ... but still tried to reel off her speel. I ended up hanginging up, ... but she insisted I accessed my internet from my mobile, which I rarely do. Sometimes you just gotta use these twits as entertainment, before terminating their call. Caller: Scammer recording claiming to be from Prime
Fake message about a bill owing to Prime.
Wanting to check Internet speed as there is a new NBN connection in the area. Very persistent.
