Called them and they called me back asap. They wanted my details and I said NO. They called me back 3 times. I stated that they were scammers and they never called back. Their Return number was (02) 9478 2500. I hope that 1800 816 025 didnt cost me too much. A lady with an Indian accent left a voicemail on our office phone at 6.30pm asking us to call back on 1800 816 025 and that she was from Credit Management. She didn't actually say what company she was from so assumed it was a scam They call up with all the correct details of the Telstra account, including payment balances and names of the user.
Telstra has a data leak, how else do Telstra explain the amount of information these people have when they are not Telstra but scammers.
They had my full name. Automated message except when inserting name. "Hello this is Telsra.. it is important that (insert name) call about Account usuage 1800 816 025 between 8am-8pm eastern standard time. I received a call from this number and got suspicious and hung up. I called Telstra 132200 and confirmed the call was from them. It was in relation to an overdue account that had indeed been opened fraudulently. I was advised to call VEDA and request notification should anyone else try to open credit and/or accounts in my name. this is karen from ????? credit management. Can you please call us back on 1800 816 025
Hard to understand, needles to say I won't be calling them back.
I have rang Telstra who have put a trace on my line to try find out who these people are. They are scammers using Telstra as their alias. DONT give them any details. They will ring again. i've worked it out. The people calling you ARE NOT FROM TELSTRA, but they are giving out a legitimate Telstra number..... Caller: Someone claimimg they are from Telstra Credit Management
Left message to call 1800 816 025 Credit management - "something to do with my account". Previous call I got to speak to someone with a "call centre' accent - americanised - I work at a school and they were trying to get $1,400 approx out of us. I have access to all our past payments and invoices so I could check and we had never had a bill from Telstra that big before. When I asked for more details such as who the bill was made out to thinking it may be for another school with a similar name, she tells me 'Department of Education, Andrews Place, Melbourne', I told her then it wasn't our bill. She replied 'but your number was on the bill'. Told her we weren't paying it. SCAM.
Caller: Claimed they were from credit management of Telstra
A foreign man who had the correct account number and knew my first name but wanted me to pay $90 and said he was from credit management. The caller id came up as NO CALLER ID. But he said to phone the credit management number 1800 816 025. This is a scam to gather your personal information. Do not call this number.
I received an official Telstra bill. I stupidly called the number on the bill and confirmed by DOB and driver license. I will go into a Telstra shop and present them with the letter. I told them I would not pay the bill because I am not with Telstra and she (Minette) told me she would do further investigating. I hung up after a few minutes. I just had a call re my credit rating. Interesting as I dont have a credit card or owe any money. Scum bags. i called them back and was asked straight away for my full name and DOB. I didnt give this and advised that i do not have nor never had a telstra account. The man then said something about call back in a few hours as their system was down. SCAM! Claimed to be from Telstra and used my name. Telstra confirmed their is no log of a call from anyone at Telstra. Caller: Not a call but fake paper Telstra bill
Repeatedly receive Telstra bills in the mail which look VERY convincing... I just happened to notice it was not our account number and so I thought I'd check to see if the apparent Telstra number on the bill was real. No it wasn't ... it was THIS number. Glad I didn't ring it or pay the money but I can understand how some people would be caught. Handed it to Telstra. Probably won't catch the mongrels though. :(
Called and said this was not a telemarketing call and tha tI needed to call urgently about usage of my account. When I called Telstra they said there was no record of this call and referred me to scamwatch Caller: Said he was Joseph from Telstra - came in as a private number - which is difficult to block.
Caller left a voice mail saying Joseph from Telstra and credit management. Strong foreign accent. Gave the 1800 816 025 number as the number to call.
Caller: No call id
Caller: No caller id
Missed call, the idiot left robot voice message:Say they f*cking from Telstra regarding about my account usages,ask me to call1800 816 025, this is f*cking scam, f*ck the whole people off. f*cking killed
had a voicemail message from Private number, it was an Indian man saying he was from telstra and i needed to phone 1800 816 025 to discuss my account.
