Got scammed $1000 from this guy called himself john pretending to be a telstra employee.
Caller: FAKE NBN / Telstra call
NBN robo call, transferred to office. Sub-continent accent saying from North Sydney at Telstra. Employee ID: D295121, says you can call (02) 8003 4273 to confirm. Says there has been malicious software download on my computer. Attempts to get me to navigate location on internet. This is where I cut it off.
Couldn't tell me whether he was calling a business or personal number. I work in large organisation with a very strong IT security capability, so rather unlikely they'd know first! Lols. Avoid this scam!
Caller: Ron Wilson
Auto message then "Ron" saying computer causing problems on the internet. I told him the phone cord was not long enough to reach the computer. He kept persisting - obvious a scammer!
Caller: Caller: Michael NBN
First an automated message then Michael saying someone had accessed our IP address and we needed to go to the computer and so on... then when told we believed the call to be a scam we were asked to phone (02) 8003 4273 to confirm. Michael insisted we must call it is most important etc. etc. Total Scamm (02) 8003 4273
2 calls today, one was an automated voice and the other was from Adam.
first one was telling me that my NBN service would be disconnect in the next 24 hours.
Adam was telling me that there is a virus in the NBN system.
BOTH phone calls are a scam! I just hang up on them
A scam claiming my internet would be disconnected if I didn’t go to my computer right away and apply some antivirus program
