Apparently overseas people can buy Australian numbers from Telstra so Telstra aren't going to stop them while they are charging them for the number. Because it shows a number and not "Private Caller" people are more likely to answer the call. The fact they are saying they are from Perth and it's obviously a Brisbane number they've purchased seems to validate this information. I never answer any number i don't know because if the caller is genuine they will leave a message. Scammer called my tablet but I don't use it. These slime-balls need stopping. What a waste of our time. Telstra should crush them. Why aren't they? This person called "Gary" led me on for ever. Knew all about me including mobile phone numbers which made me think he was from Telstra. Tried to talk me into a new phone. Lost patience with him and hung up. Called me 3 times but didn’t leave a message and luckily I had been busy those 3 times otherwise I might of got scammed by this loser, didn’t recognise his number so I typed it into google and found this website with all the bad comments about him. Thankyou for providing info about this fool your helping lots of people. They call and when I answer they hang up. Annoying. I am actually loving scammers like this calling me. Firstly, I don't ever confirm my name or anything but ask who they are working for so I can report them. Secondly, I cut into their spiel and give them a mouthful of abuse telling them to stop scamming, to get a real job, and what would they think about someone trying to scam their mother or other family member ... but all interjected with a very healthy dose of expletives. Usually they hang up before I even get warmed up. Have fun with them. Dumb c*nts keep calling my modem. Said they were from Telstra in Perth... BULL*HIT The had a Qld (07) number. Getting sick of these AR*HOLES preying on people. Strong believer in Karma, they will get theirs... I wish it so. Caller: TSA telco
The f*ckheads can keep ringing I am with Telstra it comes up as spam on my phone I just keep blocking cockheads like these people now they just go straight to my message bank so it cost them some money
Calls regularly and doesn't leave a message. Call my home number daily and on occasions a second time .Don't pick up but that does not deter them. A few missed calls over a few days from this number. They never leave a message. BLOCK THEM! Calls every day at 12:00. no message left on message bank. Unknown numbers don't get answered here. Caller: Said she was from Telstra
I asked why she was calling me She said to see if I was happy with my package, that’s when I said I was & hung up! Scam don’t give any personal details to these people BLOCK THEM
missed call from (07) 3214 0653. no message left. do not call them back Missed the call and called back, said they were a company working for Telstra, dodgy. Definitely fake They call my 4G mobile broadband number which won't accept phone calls. They call at least once a day. Telstra messages each call, stating I've missed a call from (07) 3214 0635. Stan. Caller: 32140635
They say they are from Telstra. NOT TRUE. They say they act on behalf of Telstra. NOT TRUE.
Australian accent. However, I have a password on my account and he could not tell me what it was.
Your best option is to ring Telstra and get a password on your own account. If they cant tell you what it is then they are not from Telstra.
this number has called 5 times in two days. I refuse to answer numbers from unknown source, as no one calls the house phone. it's only for the kids to call us. Still at it. Didn't recognize number, so didn't answer. No message left. Looked it up on reverse number site. Call was to mobile.
