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.
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

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.
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 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.....
Some Indian guy called claiming he was Telstra, and that others were using my internet.
I asked him what the problem was ( that I don't mind), but he said that if they did anything illegal, I would get in trouble.
He asked me to press the 'window' button on the keyboard so I could see who was connected, but I told him I would ring Telstra myself. I asked him his name - 'Frank'. Note that he didn't ask for anyone by name when he called!!!

Scammers.. please don’t talk to these people. Caller: Scammer
Overseas scam callers "Microsoft / Telstra / NBN / BT / Visa / ATO /Citrix (Insert name here) Technical Support” for virus and internet problems from overseas using a spoofed local number.
Blocked the number after the first ring as Caller ID showed it to be an 03 number. I do not know anyone from that area and get only numerous scam calls from there. This site confirmed I was right to block it as a scammer (Mumbai again ….) Caller: Scammer
person rang stating they were from my Internet Service Provider and asked me to go to a web address on my home computer to fix a problem.
hung up when I was too slow doing what they requested...
Scammer hung up when I said I wouldn’t turn on computer. Also got very cranky when I said I couldn’t understand a word he was saying. Scammer hung up on me when I said I wouldn’t turn my computer on.
