The lady on the phone says she is calling from Telstra NBN just to get feedback on the technician who installed the NBN cables. She asks what date it was installed and we said that she should have that on record. When you ask her details, she says she is from Brisbane, provides a Telstra employee ID number etc, and also provides an amount from your last Telstra bill. When you call the number back, it goes to an answering service which says it is the Telstra NBN team. HOWEVER...
We called Telstra directly (using the 13 22 00 number), and we were told that this would not be Telstra, because Telstra will only notify customers about NBN matters via email or post ONLY. We were advised this was an overseas scammer using an Australian appearing phone number.
they ring a couple of times every day and no message i do not answer numbers i do not know Caller: TELSTRA
WHY THE HELL CANT TELSTRA STOP ALL THIS RUBBISH , ITS GETTING BEYOND A JOKE NOW.. MAY AS WELL CANCEL THE PHONBES BECAUSE MOST ARE CRANK CALLS, YOU DONT KNOW WHOS ON THE OTHER END
Caller: Probale scam trying to get my voice recorded with my name
Unfortunately I answered this as I lived in a state that has an 08 prefix and thought it might be about a service that needs to be updated. I answered Hello this is [my name] and then it hung up. Now I'm pretty sure it's a spoof scam that is harvesting people's IDs and voice records for use with potential other online or phone services as I know that my mobile number is associated with now 5 major data hacks that have been reported on ': have I been pwnd? - the most recent was yesterday due to Evite data breach. My advice. don't answer with your voice and don't let it go to voice mail so they don't get to record your voice.
Rings everyday now up to twice a day. We're are a unlisted no. How did he get our no. Even I don't know my own no. We never answer they never leave a message. They ring every day, I don't answer. I'm guessing it may be an NBN company Ring every frecking day, I don't answer just answered and they hang up Another scam call. They NEVER leave a message when the call isn't answered. Totally fed up with these repetitive calls that go on and on and on. I do not answer unsolicited calls and only reply if a message is left from someone I know It is a total invasion. Why do we have to put up with it? This number called me a shirt while ago. I answered the phone with my name but there was silence on the other end. I yelled several times hello and no one answered so I hung up No message left when I don't answer their call. Suspect it's a scam call. I don't recognise their number. Caller: TSA Group on behalf of Telstra
They are legitimate reseller but still annoying. You must contact Telstra on 13 22 00 to be removed from their calling lists
Caller: Someone who is not Telstra
They claim to be Telstra, but couldnt tell me which of the properties the disconnection it related to.
They rang, but would not speak.
You can hear them breathing on the phone and some background noises, but they would not speak.
Caller: Telstra employee id #910472
I got a call when I was asleep. He told that he is from Telstra. He told me my name and asked if I am the one he is speaking too. He told about NBN network stuffs. I told its already connected. He asked if he can record the conmunication, I told yes. Because firstly I was in half sleep and secondly there is always a question before Telstra answers the calls that this conversation will be recorded for sth purpose. After that he asked my date of birth, I said I cannot give you. Later on, he wanted to talk more. I start yo doubt so I told politely I think there is no more to talk so I would like to end the call.
Now after reading the above message including voice recording for scamming, I am too worried. I hope nothing wrong will be because my voice is recorded and I mistakely gave permission to record it.
Not sure whether the number being discussed is a SCAM or not, but can confirm that NBN does text. We are currently having NBN installed and they have texted about half-a-dz times to confirm appointment time. rang and hung up without leaving a message Telstra was a con company, it is a con company and will be a con company for the years that will come. Criminals, thieves, liars, incompetent idiots. No wonder why all the Asian companies are putting these morons on the bottom of the food chain. Stop robbing people! Stop lying! Brainless Maggots!!!! Same as above.
