Not actually a call, this was the supposed number to call in a Westnet Bill Payment Failed email received days before the bill is due to be paid automatically as usual and this never happens, payments are always on time on the dates they are due and never before they are due. Email says and looks like its from Westnet "Accounts" (or something similar) but says its from an @iinet.COM.au email address. This is the giveaway as while Westnet were taken over by iiNet some years ago (very unhappy with that) so could be iiNet trying to handle the matter , they Both fall under TPG Group now. Also the iiNet domain is .NET.au NOT .COM.au. as is shown. Almost had me when I saw it until I thought this was too early for them to charge me, then looking again and seeing the scam email address (wrong domain). I didn't call the number provided as contact but it is different to the one on the company website given as number to call for Account / Payment problems so yet another giveaway. Very stupid attempt at a scam email. Caller: Scam email
This is the correct number for Westnet, but the email it is contained in is a phishing scam. The "click on" address in the email is auswestnewebmail-94402e.ingress-baronn.easywp.com/yaiwest.
The address the email appears to come from looks authentic.
Caller: EMAIL SCAM
