Telstra planned internet outage alert. Someone used this number (0436 597 000) to send the SMS message below (Monday June 17, 2019, 09:55AM):
"Your First Home Owner Grant means you must move into your home within 12 months of settlement. If you can't make the deadline call State Revenue Office 13 21 61"
Now, is that 13 21 61 number legit, or routed to another scam number???
I reported this number to Telstra as a possible scam SMS reporting a planned outage. Telstra emailed back to me - it is a legitimate number and SMS advising in advance of a planned outage.

SCAM. I do not subscribe to Telstra. Kept sending me messages asking me to check my NBN.
Telstra has been hacked, this is also a legit number used by Telstra regarding the NBN.
SMS message t0 me.. I'd have thought if genuine Telstra would use a text with the Telstra logo... not just a blank person pix. from
0436 597 000

Received sms asking me to contact Mendleson Lawyers regarding an outstanding Radiology account.
It's a scam. I don't have any outstanding radiology accounts.
Scam. Notification that it was from Australian Government Security Vetting Agency, (AGSVA) told me to look for an email and 'urgent action required'. Received sms at 7am this morning (12 Feb 2019) reporting planned Telstra outage at my address scheduled for 14 Feb 2019 due to nbn maintenance in my area.
Definitely a scam, as I do not have NBN, and I have sound advice from Telstra that anything other than satellite (which is optional) probably won't reach me for at least a decade.
just want to block it I called my Telstra today and they said there was NO Outage
its a Scam
Australian Government please make scammers accountable for their actions
i received sms 61 436 597 000 claiming of an Nbn outage on 26 oct ???? (no year) from 7am - 2pm
I also checked NBN Telco outage at my address in Sydney nsw
My Telco said their was not Outage at my addresss
i am receiving false annoying NBN outages my address
i always receive a letter from NBN of any outage or planned maintenance at my address in Sydney NSW
I received no letter from Telco or Nbn
This needs to be investigated
i checked today with Telco they said there was not outage at my address
Australian Government must make hackers accountable for their actions
or have an int or inc number
SMS at 2:30am asking if we still had our item for sale. States to email (link given) only do not text back. Felt wrong so deleted SMS. I received an sms stating that I have an appointment with Samsung Garden City (Queensland), even though I am in Melbourne. There's a link to supposedly cancel the appointment, but I am afraid that it might be some scammer trying to get my details so they can commit identity theft. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CLICK ON THE LINK! telstra service sms
