This is Telstra back of house team, they generally call other ISP to work out technical issues such as faults. I am taking to one as I type this who is helping me get one of my customers connected due to a network issue. Not a scam line at all. I receive call during my complaint, conversation with telstra customer service, from Philipines, very strange, and also you been forced to give them your DOB before start conversation, compleatly wrrong from Telstra, completly agree with coments above, scam Firstly. anyone can get a legitimate phone number to pass off as being honest. People, wake up. I have a friend who was with DoDo, not telstra. But because the number "Sandra" supplied as a real number, my friend followed all the instructions to "fix" her "compromised" internet. So what happened next was gobsmacking. She almost immediately lost a lot of money from her bank account. One of the "tests" was to log onto her most secure internet site. She suggested that her bank was the most secure. Little did my friend know that this woman now had access to ALL of the information about her, her family, her friends and since she was logged into her internet bank account, that was also available to these lousy scammers. Wake up people. If you dont use telstra, then why would they be calling you about your internet. If in doubt, the slightest doubt. Hang up and call your internet provider. It is Telstra..2/8/17 call from this number and can confirm it is Telstra... Scammers. Also avoid (03) 9018 5643. I received a call from Telstra at home, indicating that our internet connection had been compromised and that there had been a security breach. We recently changed over to Telstra and had all manner of issues with the connection so I initially thought that this call was legitimate.
I asked that they provide me with some evidence that I was speaking to Telstra and they gave me a number to call "Technical Centre". They didn't pick up and called me back. I hung up since I checked the comments here, but I must say that they were pretty good. They called me 2 times after that. This scam is apparently widespread.
Received call just before 6pm on 7 Jul 2017 (NSW Australia) - fave time for scammers as we sit down to the news. she said she was from telstra phoning about microsoft software. i said 'no you are not. you are lying to me. give me your number and i will report you to the police.' Haha so this naive indian-sounding woman gave me the number above. duh. i am on the do-not-call-me-list so this is illegal. i know it is not telstra because i dont have a telstra account. so some ppl above are misguided! This is definitely Telstra and it is very disappointing that others have said that it's a scam - it's not!!!! They kindly phoned me back as I had made a complaint about them. I was on hold to telstra and I accidentally hung up. The rep called me back using this number. Was fantastic. Meant I didn't have to go through the initial crap with press 1 for blah blah Please do not call me. I am on the do not call register. This is Telstra, I lodged a complaint with the ombudsman about them, they were calling me to discuss it. Telstra Support Still happening, they try to push you to call them and threaten to disconnect your service, I am a techo and this is just a scam to frightrn older persons. Telstra This is a legitimate Telstra number. Definitely NOT a scam. I, like a lot of people, was undecided. I had occasion to contact Telstra myself. I got them to look up their internal directory. If you still have any doubt, I would suggest you do as I have done. Get secret questions (with answers only you know) put on your account and insist the caller asks you on all calls. I've had some very interesting comments from some scammers, when I confront them with my request. Anyway, deal with this number in confidence. Rose Wilson Telstra ID No. 145800 is a scammer said my internet was hacked and to open up the computer so she could have access - do not respond - report her n her phone no. Yes, same dodgey caller referring to a hacker, and saying she was based in some Melbourne office, but clearly a hoax. I had the same caller today, but I will not be calling her back. Not a scam. This is Telstra trying to respond to a complaint I made. Telstra returning call re: compliant. Not a scammer. Definitely scam - have checked with Telstra tpday and they say it's not their number.
Do not give out personal details or allow them to access your computer.
