Telstra planned internet outage alert. filed a complain at telstra support regarding nuisance calls and hacked mobile number. I received a text from this number asking me to check my mail as they have proposed reesolution regarding my complain. I tried calling the number but said the number is not connected. 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.
Caller: Angel from Telstra

I received a text message from this number after I complained at telstra support about nuisance calls/text and hacking issues, informed me that they have proposed resolution so asked me to check my mail. tried calling the number twice it said the number is not connected. searched the number up and reverse call look up showed 12 complains. bogus number. emailed a complain at telstra and texted me to check my mail regarding my complain. The reply I received seemed not coming from legit telstra complain officer.

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

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
