Number not connected when I rang back????????? Caller: Telstra
Spam call to say my computer was infected
Caller: Claimed to be Telstra
Told him I work at Telstra (which I don't haha) because I knew it was a scammer, and asked for his employee id - they hung up quite quickly.
Caller: Telstra....computer virus???
Just had someone tell me computer had been infected, so I told him to f*@k off because I'm not stupid and I knew what he was up to. He then preceded to tell me "shame on me" for using such foul language, so I said "shame on you for trying to scam innocent people" and then I kept telling him to f*@k off....highlight of my day, thanks
Just had a call from this scammer too saying he was from Telstra. Same thing saying there was a large amount of data being consumed on my home internet. I asked for the incident number and he hung up. Caller: (03) 9318 6093
Windows tech department scammers.
Caller: Telstra Technical Department
Indian caller tried to tell me that my internet was being used by a number of people and he would help me disconnect them. On querying where he was calling from he said he was from Melbourne. I told him he was a scammer and I wasn't interested in his help and he hung up after calling me stubborn and dumb.
Just received the call and it goes "I'm sorry, that is not a valid extension" and thanks to this forum, realised it was spam once I immediately Google searched the number. Thanks for the headsup. Caller: Some pest.
Think it was some bloke offering free test tickets.....
Spammer as usual from telstra leave us alone. Caller: Scammer said he was from Telstra
Scammer said he was from Telstra. I told him he was talking Bullsh*t, he said Bullsh*t. I said yes. He hung up. I knew he was not from Telstra, as Telstra is an Australian Company,, and he was not speaking with an Australian accent.
From Telstra - Called my 10 times in the last two business days. Caller: (03) 9318 6093

Indian accent wanting me to turn on my computer to help me get rid of people trying to use my internet. Asked for his ID number so I could confirm this with Telstra, he hung up
Same sh*t, just got a call. As soon as I heard Telstra, I told him he's bullsh*t and scammer and he hung up. Caller: Scammer
These guys are claiming to be from Telstra and are almost certainly spoofing phone numbers. They are also using (03) 5432 0838 so block this one on your phone too.

Employee ID: D658134
Calling from: Telstra HQ - Melbourne CBD - 242 Exhibition St. - Foursquare
Problem: Reported to me that there is unusual activity coming from my modem which could indicate scamming.
Peter wanted me to turn on my computer. Then he asked me what key was next to my control key. I said "the Windows key" and he wanted me to press the Windows+R key to run a command. I didn't do this.
He hung up when I asked him for the technical specifics.
They rang me about 10 minutes ago.. I have no power in my area at the moment due to storms.. I answered as I thought it would be friends even though I didn’t recognise the number. Heard Indian accent and just listened as he said hello can you hear me .. hello hello then he hung up.. hasn’t called back yet
