Claimed to be from Telstra and that I had malicious software but I don’t use Telstra for any service... fraud calling happening
Nobody on line when I answered. Probably a scam This number is from a Phishing Centre. They call and take a chance that the person they've called is a Telstra customer. They then claim that they have detected illegal activity on your internet service and try to get you to log onto a website or download software. Unless you'd like some sport in abusing Indian Phishers, which is always fun, then avoid this number. scam Claimed to be from Telstra, and she hung up immediately after she introduced herself. Caller: Some lady

Caller: Woman, Indian/SriLankan accent
SAid she was with Telstra Tech services. Said other parties were using my interenet connection. Was my service slow? I asked who she was. Gave an "emplyee number". Asked for her department's number. She gave (03) 9028 7765. Said Telstra info services wouldn;t know about this number as she was related to the cyber security dept. Led her on a bit but clearly not who she said she was, but had a story to tell for every question. When I replied "suspicious, I'm not with Telstra", she replied everyone ultimately uses Telstra infrastructure. Trick is not to give away any of your details when talking to such scammers.
Caller: Indian guy
Indian guy on the phone, said his name was Steve. Claimed he be from Telstra and that they’ve detected illegal activity on my internet connection.
When I asked for his location he claimed he was in Melbourne, when pushed for a suburb he gave a street address in Melbourne city, still pushed for a suburb he gave 3000 Victoria. I explained the concept of suburbs and he said he didn’t know because he was new to the country and this was a relatives address. At this point I told him he was a scammer and a terrible liar and hung up on him
