Caller: "John Smith"
Caller with Indian accent, called himself "John Smith", pretending to be from Telstra technical department, told me something was seriously wrong with my internet. I told him I don't believe him and when I asked for a call back number he gave me a random mobile number which was suppose to be Telstra billing department number. told him i don't have internet at home and then he hung up.
Caller: "Your internet provider"
Usual scam. Pretending your internet is about to be cut off.
Same issue with others posting except this person knew my name. All other factors were red flags including calling form random number, heavy accent, poor phone quality and significant background noise. I felt this was a bit off and asked to call them back which he said was not possible. This response told me the call was some type of scam. Foreign accent. Told me my credit card was trying to be accessed or used from America due to my IP address being compromised. Caller: 08618 67562
spoke to 3 males regarding my phone number being used for an amazon prime subscription and that it would be cancelled if I didn't ..... - I didn't go any further with the call - went from the guy who called to the supervisor then the amazon credit manager - wanted to talk me through the details by adding something to my phone and only then they could give the name that was being used against my number - and refund my account for monies charged - never been anything charged to my accounts - I don't use Amazon

A man with a foreign Indian type accent from NBN rang and said my internet was being disconnected later today. I said thats ok. He seemed flustered and said my NBN service needs a software update. I said "don't bother, disconnect it later today. Goodbye". I think he actually hung up before I did.
I ignored this number...earlier in the day I had a call from a different number saying it was from Telstra and they were going to disconnect my Telstra internet the next day. I suspect this call would have been similar. On the earlier call, I said 'oh you must be a scammer, just let me start recording this call, I don't have Telstra internet but keep talking!' and they unsurprisingly hung up... Caller: Telstra or pretending to be Telstra
A woman with heavy accent calling from a noisy room full of people on other calls saying she is calling about my Telstra internet. I hung up as I'm not with Telstra.
Caller: An indian sounding guy Said it was Telstra wanting to apply 30% discount
Said he wanted to apply 30% discount, called number back and just rang out.

I answered, but there was no one on the other end, I waited for 5 seconds, then hung up.
