Called on the land-line, said he was from NBN network and said I needed a new modem!!
wanted my address so a technician could come and install it, I said it was okay to leave it
on the doorstep after going along with them i eventually asked for their number so i could
call them them back!(08) 8121 8321due to technical difficulties couldn't be connected!!
Caller: Claims from NBN
Called to make an appointment for modem upgrade saying needed access inside the house. Gave me NBN technician's name Daniel Johnson & NBN Id # NBN9687DJ. Also verified my mobile number.
Caller: (08) 8121 8321
I can actually call the number back and have been having fun wasting there time as they wasted mine.
Caller: Said his name was Daniel
Called me by name, knew my address, said my NBN modem was an older version and was causing slow responses. Offered to post me a new modem. My alarm bells started ringing when he asked for $5 postage and pay on my credit card. Unlike some people I know I will never give my card details to a cold caller. I said NO! He hung up! Later I rang his number (08) 8121 8321 and got "number disconnected recording". SPOOFED NUMBER.
Claimed to be from NBN - obvious scam - passed me over to the ‘technician’ who tried to arrange a visit to our house. Calling back tomorrow - look forward to it - so much phishing etc going on under Covid lockdown etc.
Called me and seemed to know we'd had a bit if trouble with our internet. Sounded legit, until they wanted a small amount for delivery. No matter how many times I said I wouldn't be paying anything they got more insistent until I was put through to the 'supervisor.' He was just plain obnoxious. Played it until he hung up in frustration. 🤣 Caller: "Daniel Johnson"
Dangerous scam! Sounds like a genuine call from NBN but eventually they want your credit card number on pretense of a delivery fee for Aust Post. They seemed to have our address and phone number and name so somehow scammers have got hold of that info!
Report any calls from this number to scam watch!
Caller: Supposedly the NBN
Called my Dad claiming an update to NBN. He never falls for these scams but this sounded really legit. Sent an invoice, with this phone number and a gmail account. Charge was $5 for postage. Called the number back from a different phone and they answered unprofessionally, and when I asked some basic questions they hung up on me. Definitely a scam.
This was a smartass, claiming he was from both telstra AND NBN !! woohoo clever working for both!
Careful its a scam asking for credit card details for new modems
