Looked real and was very professionally done. My wife nearly paid it but reference to my account on Telstra showed that the previous bill had been paid an the current bill was a completely different figure.
Strangely the real Telstra site's account section went down shortly after my inquiry!

Yes, it is a very common scam.
They have, every couple of months for the past few years. So have the ACCC, TIO and other agencies. The newspapers usually hav an article about one scam or another every day.
I think you may have misread it - the poster means the scam email received was exactly the same as the email shared by the original poster. So they got the same scam message that uses the same balance and account number. He doesn't mean that it matches his account information. The only difference between their scam emails was the URL.
As URL's start to get blocked, they keep the email the same and switch up their links.

Ahhhh... right. Sorry, my mistake. I'm a bit gun-shy, I've just been through something similar with PayPal that looked like someone else had access to my account -- I'm still not sure that it has been satisfactorily explained.
It can be a bit of a nervous world sometimes.
