DHL or Chinese embassy scam

Answered
After I switched to Telstra, I have received countless calls form fake DHL or Chinese embassy. Did my private info leak? Any help from Telstra to block those numbers. ( call back day number is not connected)

Re: DHL or Chinese embassy scam

No. You just got unlucky and picked out at random by the scammers.

 

As the numbers that they are calling from aren't real, it is next to impossible for Telstra to do anything about it. If they are calling your mobile, then your handset may have a setting to block the numbers (although if they change the number they are pretending to come from, it's only a stop-gap solution).

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
