I called back number (02) 9200 1000 reached IVR for Telstra.
Keep getting called saying they are from Telstra and my internet is being disconnected as it’s being hacked - they don’t know my name.... I'm a telephone techy [ retired ] and I reported another number as identified by a rotary group - this number called and hung up but I know it's bogus from reports here. These scammers pay for a rotary group rather than individual numbers usually the last 2 digits are extensions and the prefix digits belong to a rotary group. I told telstra to investigate the rotary group and disconnect them thus eliminating the company input lines they use. no word so far Caller: Telstra
GENUINE. Telstra was following up my complaint to Scam Watch. Telstra will apply a filter to my number to block "spoofing" ie my number being used by scammers.
Called twice in 5 minutes to business phone - no response when call answered, can hear people talking in background and typing though. No message. Probable scam or pleading. I wish all calls were charged 50 cents to be refunded only if call is accepted. Scam and cold call pleas for donations are making my phone unusable. Got this call just after I had phoned Telstra on 132200 to complain about a modem not being delivered. Dont answer calls if I dont know thee number Caller: Said Telstra
Wanting autgorisatio to give information about me to a Vivian Zu. Scam
Caller: Allegedly Telstra- scam!
Relentless harassment from these scammers on landline, mobile & even a grammatically poor mailed letter in a hand written express post prepaid envelope! Photocopied b&w telstra logo. Voicemail message (Indian male accent) claims to “see a fault with my line” Why is Telstra unable to do something about this harassment ?!
hangs up on answering Caller: Impersonating NBN?
Scamer pretending to be from NBN faults, spam calling my mobile and home phone daily untill I blocked them.
Of cause he knew your name. Telstra offshore call centres are working with the scammers. Spam / scammer / hacker .
you will get this call back straight after talking with Telstra with no idea how ro reslove things . its beyond an absolute joke .
Left message saying John McKee returning my call. But I did not make a call to this number. Caller: a scammy bastid
Typical internet gonna be disconnected garbage Seriously our government needs to do something about this
Genuine Telstra. I'm arranging a connection and they were following up.
I called a Telstra freecall number and was connected to a Telstra consultant. While speaking with them, this number called twice. I answered the third time; lady claiming to be from Telstra, advising that they had received a call from my number but it had been disconnected, so she was calling to see if she could help me. Seemed strange as I hadn't been disconnected. I asked her what freecall number I would have had to ring to get her - the number she quoted was what I had called EXCEPT for one digit..... telstra calls intercepted??
Caller: said she was from Telstra- there was a child screaming in the background.
Said she was about to send me an email ( knew my email address ) regarding my mobile phone.
just didn't sound kosher.
Caller: Telstra helpdesk for people receiving unwanted calls
This was a legit Telstra person.
I'd lodged an online report less than an hour previously, to say that someone was spoofing my phone number, as I was getting a string of callers saying that they'd had missed calls from my number. The Telstra person calling had the details of my report, and offered to put in place a "filter" to stop this from happening.
