Caller claims to be from the technical department of Telstra, Can not provide any account details and hangs up if asked to. Asks to speak with the main account holder but does not know who that is.
?? Spam caller
Missed the call. Thank goodness.
Thanks guys for the info re scammers.
Women claimed to be from Telstra and that my computer was being corrupted. I asked what could be done and was transferred to her male supervisor who gave me a Telstra ID # and phone number. At this point I asked for details of my contracts with Telstra and he gave an incorrect surname. At this point I hung up.
Me Too ! I get a call from scammers once a week. So far I have stored 21 scammer numbers on my home phone. They keep on coming ! Now they get the answer machine. I am on the DND list and have a silent (sic) number. Too many loopholes in the DND policies. We could do with some help here Telstra ! Caller: Indian man with a 1" cock
I knew this was a scam so didn't answer. Keeps calling so I picked up. Indian man at the other end said I had problem with my internet and asked how many green lights are on modem. As I have NBN it controls internet+phone so if there was a problem my phone would also be dead, but of course it's working just fine. I told the loser at the other end NO lights were on and he said ok we can help you. Then asked me to type some stuff on my PC pointing the browser to a web site.... yep that's right, my internet is supposed to be not working but a**hole tells me to go to a web site! LOL!!! Then I hung up.
Caller: A John Williams, Indian accent, said from Telstra
Said our internet had been broken into but could not give me my first name or date of birth. He rang from (03) 5868 7863. When I asked for a direct line no. to ring back he wouldn't give me a number , said he couldn't. My response, you want to get into my computer and yet you won't give me a land line. Finally gave me the number above and called it but not connected. A scam.
Thanks to reverseaustralia for alerting me to an unwelcome caller. Telstra free service. Oh dear, a problem with my internet... Caller: Wilson from ?? Telstra technical support
Problem with my internet connection and I need to turn off all my smart devices and follow her instructions. What a scam!!!
said at first he was from the NBN and said that my network was compromised and that someone else was using it as well. I said oh well noone can get into our server and he went well someone is.
He then didn't like when I said well I don't have NBN anyway so how do you know. Then his story changed to say he was from telstra (which again I don't use) and said the same thing. I then went well how do you know since I don't use telstra either. He said well I'm from your provider who do you use? I refused to tell him and he said well I'm from your provider and you are compromised and kept asking for my provider and then gave me this number to call back on if I wanted to tell him my provider.
A nice 5 minutes break from the work I was doing. He couldn't keep his story straight, unfortunately my 15 year old daughter is better at lying than he is and I can see through her too!
That exactly the same India guy call me yestreday Lad from”Optus Technical Dept”, my internet line will be disconnected from midnight for 2-3 days. I asked if there was a number I could ring to check progress of work, gave me this number and I was to quote my ID number. I asked what my ID number was and he hung up This guy said I am working for Telstra, I told him to stop calling me, and I told him off and I contacted the Telstra here and they told me just ignore these calls Caller: "Pete Cobb" supposedly from Telstra
Gave his phone number as 852 3192 7420 and his Telstra employee number as 9635. Told me I had internet problems. Got me to check how many lights are on the NBN modem. After I kept him on the line for 10 minutes, he swore at me and hung up.
At my mothers hiuse, this call came in Claiming i need to talk to technician,re MBN rollout, and that ourTelstra lines will be disconnected within 24 hours, i just asked for then return phone number and that i would call them back. Looks like its a scam as suspected, 0085231927420
is there anywhere this number can be logged as a scam.....
Very Indian-sounding scammer calling himself Bruce Hawker from Telstra. Told me they'd been getting signals that my internet is corrupt or misused, and it would be terminated. He kept repeating his "script" when I questioned him, and his questions were stupid and didn't even make sense in respect of how it all actually works, so it was a dead giveaway. He got very annoyed when I told him that's not his real name and he wasn't calling from Telstra, Told him to f*** off then he called me a f***ing b*tch before hanging up on me. Fun times. This guy has upped his performance. Says he is from Telstra wanting to check internet performance and the number of lights on the modem. Then wants you to check your computer. When I laughed at him and said I hoped he really wasn't from Telstra because I didn't believe him. All became a little sinister when he then quoted my address, name and telephone number and announced that he was coming to my house for a cup of tea to discuss it. My advice:
*do not use the program
*do not change the cords on the router as they request.
