Caller: NBN Co
Genuine caller. Indian accent. Made appointment with Telstra so they called to confirm my previous appointment time and offered to move it earlier as it was initially 18 days away! ..with no internet pretty much....
Called back at 3:18pm AEST and voice mail said "This office is currently closed. Please call back during normal office hours." Multiple calls on weekends and outside normal business hours, never leaves a message, very annoying. I got a few calls from this number, (03) 9001 5712, as well. I just googled it, it's a local access number for Australia used by an India phone card company called Mother India.
I think this confirmed it is a scam call. If the person on the call also knew your address, then it would mean they had got hold of customer private information from NBN or your Internet provider. This could mean a security breach because your Internet provider or NBN's system had been hacked somehow. This concerns me more then just a scam phone call.
Back a few years ago before FaceBook Messenger, Whatsapp, WeChat, or Zoom, by which we can call anyone anywhere, to avoid high cost from making international phone calls, there were a lot of companies selling phone card services. Phone card companies had a worldwide network. They offered a phone service using Internet in the middle and local voice switching at the end countries. Each end had a local fixed line phone number. eg. Say one of my relatives lived in India and I lived in Australia, when they tried to call me, instead of dialling my Australia number, which would incur cost of an International call, they would dial a local India number, +91 xxxxxxxx, to get onto a phone card company's network, this would only cost them the cost of a local call, then they keyed in phone card number and passcode which were shown on the phone card they purchased somewhere, then they keyed in my Australia number, then my phone in Australia would ring and show as someone from Melbourne (03) 9001 5712 was trying to make a domestic call to me. These companies must have gone out of business by now due to the many new ways of making video and voice calls using mobile data over the Internet instead of using the traditional voice switching network. That's probably why Mother India's website only shows "Copywrite 2012".
spoke to some one saying he was from nbn saying the black box was faulty have had 3 calls today...never leaves message...sounded Indian...thankful I have this app to disconnect these annoying calls Likely NBN has I had a fault open, however the callers don't seem to have devolved and forgotten how to operate a phone and hang up after 2 seconds. Legitimate caller, NBN calling to confirm appointment to install. Caller: NBN CO
This number was genuinely NBN calling about an upcoming appointment to rectify an internet outage after we logged a ticket.
Yes an Indian accent, but 100% NBN guys scheduling their rectification works.
Caller: (03) 9001 5712
I thought it was a scam but turns out it is TPG's call centre (I called TPG on their website number and they confirmed it is legit). So there you go.
Called today at 4.45pm ( usually close to end of business) I didnt answer, instead sent sms to ask what they want . No re;ply and then i googled it to find numerous complaints above. i have aussie nbn being connected this week. spoke to telstra about reducing the data on my phone today.
this number left a message advising they were calling about my nbn and had they had my address.
a bit scary
Caller: NBN Co
They keep call even on public holidays or in the night. Took a call once in daytime It was just confirming my request to switching to NBN via TPG even installation schedule was confirmed already. Simply blocked this number.
This number rang me, tried to ring back but engaged signal. Doesn’t make sense because I’m with Optus and people are being called who are with Telstra. I am in the process of trying to get NBN, it’s like someone from these companies is giving them our phone numbers. Deal with Optus on the app and NO mention from them about someone calling me. Caller: NBN
NBN but it answers and hangs up immediately. Thanks for not showing NBN and not bothering to call....

Legitimate caller, NBN calling to confirm appointment to install
It is a legit call re: NBN, either appointments or such. They are still weird though.
Like others I distrusted this number. Kept calling, no message and no way to call back. When answered it was NBN confirming details for a maintenance appointment.
No it is a legitimate call from NBN confirming appointment times made through my ISP. Caller: Call centre NBN
Called to confirm appointment to repair NBN. Knew when the appointment was scheduled for and what was likely at fault. Very polite. Legit.
