Said my internet speed was slow and a Peter Wilson will come and give me a new modem but I would have to pay $9.98 delivery I refused to give my card number and the abuse I got was not at all nice they scared me because they had all my info. address phone no and said they would cut my internet phone line and mobile off they sent me. a invoice and the spelling was not right that is when they got nasty towards me.Thank of I did not give them my details I amstill shaking.
This phone number belongs to a scammer, who is trying to tell you they are from the NBN, this is false they are just tring to get you to send some money for a Modem that you do not need.
Caller: Technical Dept from NBN
We hung up on them 5 times, told them we thought they were a scam. They rang back and back until we spoke to them and then gave us the following details:
Technical dept number (08) 6102 8269
Peter Wilson is the so called technician they said they were sending out NBN id 2817369PW
Contact number 1800 687 626
They were rude and forceful threatening to cut off our landline for a month if we didn't agree to fibre optic connection and said this Peter guy would turn up on Monday.
They already had all of our details.
Rang Optus who confirmed it's a scam.
Rang my landline from mobile number 0414 715 953 - strong Indian accent. Said he was from NBN and ringing about my internet - problems in my area and told me my postcode. I questioned him many times. Then told him that I would ring Telstra to verify before giving any information. I asked for a number to call back on and he said:
** (08) 6102 8269
I then told him that it was a scam and told him to **** off and not call again. Then I hung up and checked number on Reverse Australia.com and it confirmed SCAM caller.

I said I'll call OPTUS to confirm you are who you say you are as they should have info about you doing work in this area and said I'll call you back if it's all on the up and up and then hung up on her needless to say I'm not calling her plus confirmed with OPTUS who knew nothing about the upgrade to the line here and a quick google search for the phone number in Google brought me here
Caller: Caller: 'Peter Wilson' from 'NBN' and his 'senior tech support' 'Mark Williams'
Firstly - They had all my personal details. (quite scary). Strong Indian accents. I asked them who logged the call. They said they were calling everyone in the area due to a serive problem. They asked me to give them my data speeds and wanted to upgrade the speed. (only recently serviced and our area had tech/network upgrades). They called from (07) 3801 2497. When I asked they said they were calling from (08) 6102 8268. I caught them out by saying "so you are in Sydney then?". after they confirmed this I then asked "how are you calling from Perth?". 'tech support' AKA "Mark Williams" Trying to gain access to my local network via https://fastsupport.gotoassist.com/ . Went to window and I started reading the warning to him "Be cautious if you receive unsolicited requests to access your computer.Only join support sessions with people you recognize and trust. Report abuse". He got very short and agitated with me and spoke over the top of me to move me on from this and to log in.
I told then I'd call them back once I 'verified it was legit'. Clearly, this was a scam from the get go, followed along without giving anything in the hope this info will help.
Caller: 'Peter Johnson' ?
Olivia Johnson is also coming to mine :)

Caller: Daniel Smith from NBN?
The caller wanted to upgrade my fibre to provide better speed. The caller hung up after I advised that I would check with Optus to see if the calller was legitimate. Before hanging up I got a contact number (08) 6102 8269. As my NBN service is new they are getting personal information very quickly

Claimed that Telstra was going to upgrade the NBN and he wanted me to check the speed on my compter. He could barely speak English and was difficult to understand. I told him that I would call him back to verify his identity. He hung up. Sounded to me like a SCAMMER.
