Told me that some Telstra lines were not secure. I asked him for a number so I could call him back. He said why do you need to call back you can talk to me now. Told him that there were too many out scammers out there calling about Internet and computer problems. He gave me the number (02) 8003 5157 so I could call back. I didn't.
Same scenario as above - wanted me to run a program to fix an internet problem - multiple users using my connection to download data. (My computer does not use WIFI - I'm hard wired) Pakistan/Indian accent ("Anna") - number calling was a Bendigo number (03) 5432 0838 but the number she gave me to call back on was the (02) 8003 5157 number. Sounded suspicious to me so I ran my anti virus software and searched the number to find above comments. Thanks guys.
Multiples calls with classic scam style delay. Person does say where they are from. I hang up and have blocked this number Caller: Scam Call
Same as others have stated. Received a call on my grandad's mobile (from a private number) claiming to be Telstra and that his internet network was not secure and that they have been receiving error messages for the past couple of days. Told them no-one has even used the network in those days. They offered to show me how to find the errors. I asked their name and number (02) 8003 5157) and said I will call them back. I didn't. I know a scammer when I hear one.
Call displayed number (02) 8509 2587, but nothing in here under that number (yet). Said she was from Optus Tech Dept and that there were a number of overseas IP addresses accessing my computer. Asked why she was calling from Optus, she said because "we ran the report" and it was "a courtesy". I said I think it's a scam call but she insisted it wasn't and gave me this number in this way "02800 35157" and insisted I call it and ask for her "Anna". I asked her to answer just one more question before I do that: if she knew of a website called "Reverse Australia". She hung up on me without another breath. Where's Joe Lycett when you need him?
Caller: Anna Watson
Received 2 calls from this person saying she was from Optus IT n the usual bs saying someone was trying to hack my computer etc.... I told her I would call her back she gave me 2 numbers: (02) 8003 5157 & (02) 8011 4649 obviously I didn’t call her back, instead I reported it to Optus who said all phone calls are recorded n they were not listed... 😡😡😡😡 soooo sick of these subhumans !!!! Get yourselves a legit job you 🤬 ferals !!!!
Caller: Lady sounded Indian who said she was from Telstra technical department
Said there was activity coming from my PC and she would help me fix it. I told her I was not at home and would call her back to get her off the phone, this was the number she gave me.
As said already, these people want to get access to your PC - don't do it.
Scam, asking for a technical details and remote connection via RDP
Caller: "Gabriel Allen"
ID #C6888692 he gave for checking purposes. Same scenario as above. "Someone is logging into your computer, do you know why"? Turn it on and phone him back on 02 80003 5157. He was Pakistani/ Indian? so Gabriel Allen ... suspicious!
Told him I would phone Telstra and hung up.
Caller: women sounds Indian
Telling me my Telstra internet connection has problems and can I go turn it on and she will help me fix it.
I DON'T THINK SO, BLOODY SCAMERS.
I told her after I charged it I will call her back, this was the number she gave me.
We have Optus.
