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 This is in fact a phone scam, not any means of harassment or monopoly from Telstra. This number called my home phone and after I didn't answer, they called my mobile number. I answered and hung up after becoming suspicious, they could not answer my questions properly and hesitated sometimes. I received a text from 0458 829 882 that read, "Msg from Telstra: Confirming new telephone connection at (my address) due on 19/09/15 between 8:00 12:00. Pls call 1800 805 096 between 8am-8pm and quote order number (order number here) to confirm your appointment. Thank you. PLS DO NOT RESPOND BY SMS AS THE REPLY CANNOT BE ACTIONED." A dodgy as text not only because of the way it was worded but also because I didn't ask for a new telephone connection. I chatted to Telstra and when Telstra tried to call the number that texted me, it said the number is disconnected. 1800 805 096 is from Telstra indeed, it is the Appointment Department for homephone and home internet. It appears that they've used this to pass off this scam as legitimate. I have no idea how they received all my personal contact details but do not trust this number if they call you. It was Telstra and i made them confirm a few things before I gave them my details. It is not a scam number. They rang my number and I rang this number and it cut off as soon as I rang it again. Must be 1 of those dodgy number mobs that ring you and hassall u blind. Acma needs 2 go after them and find them 4 being dodgy.
