Possible nbn scam

Answered

I just got a phone call from someone claiming they were with the NBN saying my modem had unauthorised connections and needed me to be on my computer to  access the modem and deal with what ever the issue is. Is this a legit thing, or s should I just ignore it as a scam?

Scam. 

 

Telstra, NBN, Microsoft etc etc will have absolutely NO IDEA if you even have any issues unless you call and say so. Just hang up. They will never call you.

It is a scam. They will probably try to get you to install malicious software on your PC. I have received many similar calls over the years some threatening to disconnect the internet and have ignored all without the internet being disconnected.

I literally never answer calls now if I don't know them, if it's important they will leave a message, I love the car crash  scam, I legally can't drive as I am a medically discharged military veteran, unbeleivable
