They rang to say that they need to discuss something with me but first they need to confirm my full name and date of birth... I refused to give that information out as I did not call them. They gave me the telstra NBN number to ring and said my case manager for a complaint needs to speak to me. I rang NBN and Telstra, neither said anyone had contacted me today... secondly, they said that when they ring you, then they do not need the DOB or full name... that is only when you ring them... I think this could possibly be a really elaborate scam.. had this number call me saying they are Telstra..checked it out rang back and no connection..Scam Saying NBN needs to be connected ,, Same speil as what he gave us ok telstra its telstras tech people. i tryed to call back but wouldnt ring then they left a voice msg to ring the 1800 number. not spam got a call from this number he said he was from telstra and said he was looking for someone whose name is not mine. when i asked him what it was about he hung up. the number does not answer if you call it. definitely dodgy Definite scam had this call today, telling me they were from Telstra, wanted to talk NBN. The number doesn't answer just beeps when you ring it. I've had a number of calls from this number, they leave a message saying they need to confirm my billing address, however I don't have a Telstra account! Thats the trick. Makes you think he is legit. Rang twice first time told them I thought they where scammers next time gave them false date of birth and address of 69 Felcher street they accepted that i'm currently overseas and any calls are insanely expensive. so.... don't care if it's telstra or scammers. i have blacklisted the number on my phone.. job done Annoying telstra Telstra is the worst Tele co in the Australia. Worst service. But we have no choice. Live with it everyone. Have received several harassing calls saying they from Telstra and want to update Internet! They had wrong home phone number and wrong address, did not give them any information! They did have correct email address and now I have no internet :( Still a phishing scam. Anyone claiming otherwise on this page is likely to be a scammer. Telstra know more about us than we do. I have also just received a call from this number (02) 9213 2700. I received a similar call about 3 weeks ago. Why are you calling me at home in my private time and I asked him "How was the weather in Bangalore?".
I informed him that after our conversation we had a good trace on the call and that the "internet police" would be involved.
Surely Telstra with their IT firepower could get all of this sorted out. It is very disappinting. Smaller telcos are becoming more attractive providers and I hear that they care for and protect their smaller customers much better than Telstra does.
I've received two calls this week from this number this week. When I rang Telstra to confirm (number from their website not the one lest in the voice mail) they told me that there was no outgoing call to my mobile so it is, indeed, a scam.
Just remember that if THEY call YOU don't give them any personal information. I've been getting a lot of scam calls lately and my automatic response now is to ring the company by the number listed on their website to confirm. So far they've all been scams.
Claimed to be Telstra, scammer don't give them your date of birth. Phishing attack. I didn't give them a chance to find out what they actually wanted. Either to get into my account or identity theft. Well spoken Indian lady. Beware. That's because its from an exchange line , as to why your unable to call it back
