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.
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... 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.
Caller: mark (indian)

Caller: 085231927420 Asian woman " from Telstra"
Asian woman from "Telstra" !!!!!!! --- any number that is longer than 8- I repeat eight number are scammers all Australian regular numbers are eight numbers if there longer its because their calling from over seas.
Caller: Female with accent.
Said she was from Telstra and was going to disconnect my internet connection. I asked her name and she said Sarah Gomez. I don't believe that for one minute. So fed up with these scammers. I gave her a mouthful of choice words and hung up.
Caller: Scam (Hong Kong area code 852) - supposedly from Telstra
Received two calls on our home phone, each caller identifying themselves as Telstra, reporting that our internet had Telstra fault error messages. Each caller didn't get very far as I advised them that Telstra wouldn't be ringing about our faulty internet, especially without a fault being logged. The first caller aggressively advised that our internet will be disconnected tomorrow and the second caller hung up. Wished our home phone had blocking capability like my mobile!!!!
Caller: F'ING SCAMMER!!!!
fxxxing scammer (indian woman) claiming to be from telstra technical department about to disconnect my internet - did not appreciate it when i called her out on her bs and promptly hung up
SCAM, SCAM, SCAM
Just got a call claiming I had technical problem saying from Telstra would not take no for an answer. Gave abn no 3305175556 said his I’d was 0322226D.. mentioned every telco but the one I am with. I have had enough of these Asians claiming he was from Melbourne office . Caller: Female claiming they worked for Telstra
Answered this call and was told by a female operator that my internet account with Telstra was going to be disconnected for 20 days. I promptly told this female operator with a distinctively non Australian accent she was full of sh*t and hope anyone receiving a call from this no. does the same.
after I answered all I got was a giggle, waste of time should not give these idiots a phone to annoy people with Caller: somebody supposedly from Telstra
They wanted me to go to my computer so they could help me fix some alleged corrupt internet activity. I asked them lots of questions and got this phone number from them. Of course I did not but I checked the number here and found I am not the only one, good site, warn others.
Caller: Said from Telstra
Claimed to be from Telstra said I had 10 people trying to get info from my PC said I had to turn it on & follow his instructions if I didn't I would have to have my Internet off for 15 days His name Mark Williams Asian but very good English ID# 8600051T - D78642 when I asked why I had not received a letter or email from Telstra about it said the letter had come back to their department which is in Melbourne and gave me an address for it. I then ended the call but he rang 4 more times as I can see the callers # on my house phone. I then updated my AVG Security.
Hi everybody, I was SO STUPID! I allowed a clearly English speaking person to "invade" my computer. He claimed to be from Telstra. He knew my mobile phone number, my landline phone number, my email address. He indicated that my computer was "corrupt". I stupidly did NOT question HOW he even knew this. I allowed him free access to my entire computer (WRONG WRONG WRONG). He then suggested that I did not login into my computer until 10am tomorrow (Friday). Again WRONG WRONG WRONG on my part - I was absolutely conned. He looked like he was addressing the system errors. Instead he found my "saved passwords" on Mozilla to my Internet Banking, Credit Card, etc etc. Upshot of this was that my bank (via Internet Banking) is short $5000. I have had to freeze my credit card, and bank account and will need to re-set everything tomorrow (Friday). Please people please don't do what I naively did and allow full computer access to a stranger. We will see if something can be done to resolve this issue. stated from Telstra - free service with regards to faults with internet wanted info on modem - wasnt happy when i wanted customer service number & contact details - david wilson is not an indian name (dead give away) SCAM
