Strong Indian Accent from Call centre. Said he was from Telstra NBN and that my IP address has been hacked by 2 people. Gave me their names and address and said they were trying to access my internet at 2 am. Gave Employee ID of TL5261. I told him I was busy and would ring back but he was persistent in trying to get me to resolve the issue now. Once he found out that it was a business phone he hung up.

I think he said his name was Alex but heavy Indian accent. Gave me an employee ID No. 699501. Said my NBN had been hacked by 3 different people. Gave me the names and addresses. Wanted to send out someone to check my modem and change it if found to be faulty. It has just started to rain here but I didn't fall in the last shower. Hung up.

An Indian sounding guy claimed to be from Telstra. He said that my phone line was going to be cancelled. He threatened to reverse charge me for the call. Persisted to say I have some kind of computer with technical problems. Told me he wanted to speak to my wife. (I'm not married) I told him that the only internet connected device I have is a fridge...
He got sh*tty eventually and hung up.

Scammers from Telstra (Indian version) rang saying my IP address had been hacked.
Asked me to ring back on this number to speak to Shaun Smith.
Heavy accented person rang claiming to represent NBN but was really from Telstra Service Centre. My ip address had been hacked but he got the address wrong. Claimed that he would ring back in 2 hours. Oh I hope not. Gave me his name and id number - sure. I rang Telstra to advise them that they were being used as the center for this scam but was told that they knew about it. The scary thing is that I was told that the police could not be called in as they were overseas and the 02 number was a front. Caller: SCAMMER- Saying they’re from PayPal
Message saying from paypal and there is a serious security issue, and to fix to call an overseas number or PayPal will be suspended!
Claims my paypal account insecure, and would help me fix it. Right.
