Typical Telstra Scam (as in not from Telstra, but they say they are). I feel sorry for the people who actually have the number (Scam) I have the whistle at the ready! So I literally just received this phone call then at 1:20 pm Monday 19th Feb, 2018 .
A guy going by the name of " Alex Jones" who had a very thick Indian accent and had call centre sounds going on in the background was telling me that my Telstra internet line had been compromised ( even though I'm with another provider) . He then proceeded to give me the skinny on how my internet would be cut off in the next 2 hours and will be disconnected for up to 6 months due to " people accessing my phone line illegally " I then promptly gave him a verbal smack down to which he responds with " I will not argue with you sir, I will now cut your internet and see you in court " . Funny that after that chat my internet is still on .
Dont be fooled by scammers or anyone giving you any information about your internet even if they give you i.d. details. Ask to speak to a supervisor and get them to confirm your details ( which they cannot do ) to catch out scammers.
Telstra Scam. Claiming internet will be shut down. Wankers Said there was a bomb in my house really shook me up. She said she is calling from Telstra and that my internet connection is going to get cut off in 2 hours. Then she asks me if I want to know why. I said no I don't want to know why and told her some nice old lady or old man could have answered the call and actually believe her. Then told her karma will get to her for doing things like this and hung up. Told me overseas hackers where trying to access my home internet & have corrupted my home computer. Told him we don’t have a computer here, hung straight up. I returned the call, and reached a lovely lady in Perth who’s number is obviously being used for these scammers to hide behind...
Do not trust them.
Scammer! Female caller . Told me my internet connection was going to be disconnected within the next 2 hours for 6 months. She asked if I knew why and when I said I didn't she said it was due to some activity that had been on my line and stuff that had been happening. I then told her she was just a scammer and I wanted her supervisor's name and number to call them back, she said she would call back, I said "no" it is your supervisors name and number I want, and then she promptly hung up. Said she was from telstra tech support and that my internet was going to be cut off for six months. When i questioned her as to our details, which she should of had if she was from telstra, she hung up. I called back number (08) 9365 2600 spoke to a woman who said company name is Farm Weekly. SCAMMER!! told me my internet connection was going to be disconnected very soon for 6 months. computer scam call saying he was with teldtra
